Despite my best efforts, I am yet to become much of a Madewell fan/customer. They have a great store here in San Francisco, but every time I go I encounter one of two problems 1) I don't see anything that really reflects my style (at a reasonable price point) or 2) Everything I try on is way too wide and way too short. I don't know why this seems to affect only me - both of my sisters and both of my sisters-in-law have a ton of Madewell clothes and look adorable in all of them (in fact, I think I may have copied my sister-in-law by purchasing this shirt...if I did, sorry L!). Anyway, I always leave Madewell discouraged, and then shuttle over to J. Crew where I love everything in the store (as every single post on this blog reflects all too well).
This top is one of the two exceptions I've found to my Madewell troubles (with the other one being this sweater). It's a little "out there" for me (stripes and polka dots!) but I know it's good to try new things, and the shirt is so comfortable that I know I'll end up wearing it a ton. It was the perfect shirt for the warm weather we had in San Francisco last weekend, and I look forward to wearing it on many more sunny Sundays.
