What’s Not to Love About This Everyday Affordable Springtime Look

Hi friends – Happy Tuesday to ya! Today I have a super casual, very affordable, everyday outfit for you all featuring this Madewell lace-up shirt dress. First things first: if you’re interested in this shirtdress, act quickly, as it’s selling out fast.

As for the rest of the outfit, I wanted to draw your attention to two other items…

  1. The tote bag :
    • Being that I work for myself and am often on the go, on a day-to-day basis I need a tote bag that’s big enough to carry everything. And by everything, I mean the typical purse contents (wallet, keys, lipstick, etc) plus my computer, chargers, headphones, and other work essentials.
    • I’ve been looking for a new everyday tote bag this season, and this Madewell transport tote bag completely fits the bill! At less than $180, it’s a bargain considering the quality. Plus, the size is perfect – big enough, but not overwhelmingly large. And I have a feeling the leather will wear nicely.
  2. The baseball cap : 
    • Some days just call for a cap, right? Whether it’s a bad hair day, a windy weather day, or just a casual vibes day, sometimes you just want / need to throw on a cap. For those days, it’s nice to have something versatile and dependable in your closet. Again, Madewell to the rescue with this cap. In fact, I ordered it on a whim recently and have already thrown it on a handful of times.

In Closing

We hope you’re having a great start to your week. You’ll notice a slightly lighter schedule this week in terms of content, as we are spending time planning and working behind the scenes for next month and some future projects. We would love to hear your feedback on what your favorite features on Wear + Where + Well are, and what you’d like to see more of, less of, anything at all. Please do let us know in the comments below and enjoy the rest of your day!

    Hi Carrie,
    I have a Madewell lace up top that I love. I imagine the dress version would be just a comfy.

    Speaking of future posts, it would be great to see some interior decorating posts…perhaps the nursery 🙂
