If you’ve been following me for some time, then you’re probably no stranger to my love for Madewell (if not, you can read about why I’m such a fan in this post). I’m always on the hunt for timeless, reliable basics, and they’re one of the few brands I can count on to check both boxes. Take this top, for example. I considered writing a post on “All The Ways You Can Wear This Top” because it’s just that versatile. It’s like a nod to the classic button down, only this one is short-sleeved, making it perfect for summer. Layer it over a tank or a dress, tie it at the waist, or tuck it into a pair of high-waisted jeans like I’m wearing here.
I completed this look with another one of my favorite purchases of late: these Gucci Loafer look-alike mules that come at a fraction of the price (and to be perfectly honest, I think I prefer them to the designer version). Not only do they have a luxurious feel, but they’re extremely comfortable, so you won’t experience the buyer’s remorse you might get with splurging on the designer version.
