Keeping it Casual

Shirt: Madewell (similar short sleeve version here) | Shorts: Madewell | Jacket: J. Crew (love this one) | Bag: Madewell | Shoes: Urban Outfitters | Hat: Anthropologie

I’m all about the casual look (and have been wearing this hat on repeat for weeks now) and Madewell’s collections are the perfect pieces for recreating a low key look for weekends. I actually used to work for J. Crew (and completely took advantage of the J.Crew/Madewell employee discount) where I learned a lot about styling and layering. The “J. Crew rule” is you need 3 pieces to have a “complete” outfit—a top, a bottom, and a cool accessory like a belt, sweater, or in this case, a jacket tied around my waist. Adding a third piece is definitely my fashion secret for looking put together even in the most basic outfit.
