Eyelet for Spring

Saturday March 15, 2014   

Last week I finally wore out my white Everlane silk blouse. There was a rip at a seam along the button panel. It was the only white blouse I had. I loved it most for the collar so I thought its replacement should be collar-focused as well!

So I ordered Madewell’s eyelet collar blouse.

I also got an eyelet skirt. For a while I had a rule, “no more black skirts.” I had built up quite a collection having a propensity for buying this closet staple over and over. But this year I had purged those skirts; mailing them off to my little sister. I was now faced with the reality that I completely lacked a basic black skirt. I tried a handful on over the year but wasn’t in love with any of them.

Then I saw the bayfront eyelet skirt on Madewell.com. It’s extremely “summer” in its design and fabric. 100% cotton; it’s a thicker, stiffer texture than I expected but the structure comes off as sporty and a perfect match for summer t-shirts. I’m relieved it has some weight to be honest because the summer winds can sometimes make flair skirts annoying to wear.

    Ohhh goodness, I do love eyelet! The collar on that blouse is so cute! And so is the skirt! If you’re going to have only one black skirt, at least have a cute one, right? (◡‿◡✿)

    that eyelet collar is lovely! The skirt is great too. You make an excellent point on the extra weight though. It will certainly come in handy for those windy days.

    The skirt looks really nice! Will you show a photo of you wearing it?

    I always love all of the Madewell items that you purchase, but their sizing seems a bit weird on me. I always feel that either the fit is too boxy and when I size down, the sleeves/torso are too short ;A;
