How to wear a bandana

I’ve shied away from Madewell in the past because I always felt fit was off. Sort of not petite-friendly, I guess. Well, not anymore! The xxs and size 23 denim has really been a game changer and I’ve noticed myself picking up a few things here and there a lot more lately. Madewell without a doubt does basics really well, so I can not be more thrilled that I can finally fit into more styles. I never in a million years would have thought I’d love high waisted jeans, but I’m obsessed with the high riser skinny skinny jeans. I’m wearing a 24, but could have easily went with the 23 (even after washing them). The lunar wash is a more faded black while the frost is a true black. And then there’s this chambray courier shirt. I’ve been meaning to add a short sleeved chambray to my closet for some time and this one is pretty close to perfection. I love the shade of blue and it’s fitted around the shoulders and arms, but billowy and flowy in the torso. For reference I’m wearing an xxs. Not pictured, but I recently added the grey zipper transport tote to my rotation. The leather is supple and the color is gorgeous. Stay tuned for pics…

    It’s hard for me to find things at Madewell that I don’t love, but have also found their fit to be less petite-friendly (I’m 5’1 and with some slight curves). I’m encouraged to give this high waisted style a try however, I’ve been on the lookout for a jean like this for awhile. Always appreciate the small-girl tips!

    This is bad for my bank account. Love it though. You look great!

    Madewell denim is amazing! So, I wear a 27 tall and I’m imagining how tiny a 23 is:) Good things come in small packages, my friend! I love all things Madewell, and I actually just purchased those slides last night. Fabulous picks…all of them and I want to go buy everything in this post. If I can’t control myself, I’m blaming you when the hubs looses his cool. LOL

    I love Madewell so much but have always had trouble finding pieces that fit me well. Their smallest sizes always sell out early so it’s hard to catch them on sale.

    I love this look. You look super Portland if that’s a thing.
