#NSALE: Madewell Striped Top


Happy Monday, friends! How was everyone’s weekend? Ours went by too fast, as it usually does. I don’t think I mentioned this (or maybe I did… I don’t remember what I’m typing) but I’m in the middle of a HUGE closet cleanout. I mean HUGE. For a few reasons: a) I haven’t cleaned out my closet in about 2 years and it’s about time and b) there was literally nothing hanging anymore and it was just one giant pile that Gemma liked to jump on. It was so bad I didn’t even take pictures before him in case I do a how to clean closet post. IT WAS SO BAD. So I’m on weekend 3 of cleaning and it finally looks like a normal person’s closet. Minimal stuff lying on the floor (which by the way, throwing things on the floor to hang them up later? is my worst habit of all time), everything hanging, even my shoes are organized. I’m trying to figure out a way to DIY more shelves in our closet, but that’s me living my best life. I think right now my goal is to be an average human being who hangs clothes on him better and doesn’t hoard everything. I think I’ll work on how to organize your closet post, because surprise surprise I’m actually a very organized thinker. It’s just getting ORGANIZED is my downfall. Please tell me, fellow trash, that you’re the same. If you’re naturally clean and organized, feel free to send me inspirational quotes, coffee, and… well, prayers.

I wore this outfit right after I bought it at the Nordstrom sale and we took these photos, but…then it all sold out. I was hoping things would be back in stock and so far this shirt has and a few sizes in these jeans have! (Including sizing, I’m wearing, size 29!) I’m mid top and it’s pretty generous, if you don’t like it loose then size one smaller! You can find my jeans here and my top here!

I have to say that this purse is the one that has surprised me the most of everything I bought in the sales. It’s my choice right now. My A-1 from day one… of the anniversary sale. It goes with everything and is a good toss and go bag. I think for the price it’s a very good buy, especially for Rebecca Minkoff. She used to carry her bags and then I walked away because I didn’t find her styles to be timeless. I now love the Julian backpack I have of hers and this bag has been such an easy integration into my wardrobe. Also, I think this color is still available too! It will go perfectly into fall. You can find it here!
