Madewell New Arrivals Picks

New arrivals were posted on the Madewell website today, and this evening I had the chance to pick out my favourites. First of all, I have been missing the flare jeans lately. I have a very old pair from J. Crew which are a bit worn out, and the Flea Market Flares in Carl Wash would be a great replacement for them.

Quilted Drawstring Jacket is exactly my kind of casual jacket: quilted, in a khaki colour and machine washable. I love this piece!


The other outerwear item I like is the Travel Trench Coat. I love the shape and the storm flap on this coat.


The McCarren Tote in 'ground paprika' looks adorable. I love Madewell totes, and this one seems another good choice.

The Glasgow Satchel in Washed Leather also come in a pretty, colourful version called 'red spark.' There is also a small Twin-Pouch Crossbody in Washed Leather that comes in the same colour.

As readers here may already know, I love bracelets and Madewell jewelry in general, and the Metalcraft Bracelet is on my wishlist.

Lapis Pivot Ring also seems like an interesting piece.

Madewell scarves are also my favourites and this roll-out had a few interesting ones, and among them, the Silk Porcelain Floral Scarf:

The Gap

I haven't been to the Gap in what seems like forever, and I thought I would first check the website before I pop into the store, hopefully this weekend. I am liking a lot of what I see on the website right now. One such item is the Colorblock Sweater Coat

Another is the Hooded Fishtail Parka. I love the tailoring of this piece and the longer length. It's made of nylon/cotton and it is machine washable.

The Classic Trench is also a great spring coat and is available in 'chino academy' and 'deep true navy.' This one is all cotton and also machine washable.

Another casual coat for the spring is the Hooded Parka. Like the trench coat above, it is also cotton and machine washable.

The Pull-On Sirttail Skirt is all cotton and comes in two colours. The shape reminds me of the Tuxedo Skirt from J. Crew I got a couple of winters ago.

The Leather Tote Crossbody in 'lettermen orange' or 'cognac' looks adorable. The crossbody strap is removable.
