Madewell is slowly and surely becoming one of my favorite stores. It's like J.Crew's slightly more down to earth cousin, losing some of the preppy vibe that defines the latter brand and staying classically cool. Madewell seems to specialize in clothes for the everyday tasks in life that go far beyond your basic jeans and tee shirts. From simple or patterned day dresses to the fabulous selection of jeans at their denim bar, the opportunities to find your go-to looks are endless. One of my favorite on-the-go items? Their "Sidewalk Skimmer" flats. The pointed toe shoe is perfect for throwing on with pants, skirts or dresses, and can easily transition from running to class to running to dinner. Best part? The variety of materials and colors the flats come in. From snake skin and leopard print to a classic brown or black leather, or bold colors in patent leather or suede, there's truly a skimmer for all of us. Check them out here.
