10 Rules for Effortless, Everyday Style

In this series, I share some simple tips for leveling up your daily looks.

For the past few weeks I’ve been working with the Madewell team to curate a 24-hour flash sale for you, and now I finally get to share about it! There are 24 styles included, and they’re all 40% off for 24 hours with the code FLASH.

See some of the pieces styled below, plus some sizing and fit tips. (All clothes and accessories were gifted by Madewell, except for the jewelry, which is from my shop.)

Thank you, Madewell, for sponsoring this post and teaming up with me to create a flash sale for my community. 

Jeans / Tank / Sandals

These mid-rise jeans are a great option for anyone with a shorter torso or looking for a more relaxed fit. I sized down in these, as I do with pretty much all of the straight leg jeans at Madewell, and they fit almost like a slim boyfriend jean. I’m 5’4″ and have the regular length. The tank is true to size for a relaxed fit, and the sandals are true to size but not ideal for wide feet.

Jeans / Tank

These are the same mid-rise jeans as above, paired with a boxy top that is true to size with a cropped fit. The ties are fully adjustable and it also comes in ivory and black.

Jeans / Tank / Jacket / Sandals

Both the tank and the jacket fit true to size for a relaxed fit. The sandals are true to size, but not ideal for wider feet. I got my usual Madewell size in the jeans and they’re a bit loose in the waist, but would be too small for my legs if I sized down. That being said, they’re incredibly comfortable and soft. I’d recommend these especially for those of you who don’t have a curvy shape, and are looking for high rise denim options that accommodate a wider waist/slimmer hip ratio. I’m 5’4″ and have the regular length.

Dress / Bag

I love the color of these stripes! I’m 5’4″ and the dress hits at a great length. Might be a bit short for taller gals, though. I got my usual size. Also, can we just take a moment to enjoy the cuteness of this mini bag?! It has a magnetic closure and perfectly fits my iPhone, card carrier, keys and chapstick (oh, and my mask, too!).

Tank / Jeans / Sandals

Same top, jeans and sandals as described above. I love these three pieces together.

Tank / Shorts

This is the same tank described above. I sized up in the shorts, but possibly could’ve stayed true to size. They can be rolled or unrolled and they have stretch.

Jeans / Tank / Jacket / Headband

Wearing the same tank, jeans and jacket as described above. The headband is nice and comfy and not too tight.
