What I Packed for 4 Days in London

Plus the outfits I put together!

It’s no secret that my favorite clothing brand is Madewell—I even have their maternity jeans! So when I saw some of their new dress arrivals and instantly envisioned pieces from my shop pairing well with them I knew I was onto something. Here are 5 “perfect pairings” to try this summer…

PAIR NO. 1 | Chrissy Necklace + Lakeshore Button-Back Maxi Dress

This combination works well because the dress has a high neck in front and a solid color—ideal for showing off the shape of the Chrissy Necklace, which is a perfectly minimalist accessory. 

 

PAIR NO. 2 | Bridget Tassel Earrings in GreyStriped Melody Off-The-Shoulder Dress

An off-shoulder dress works like a frame for your neckline and ears. I especially love tassel earrings with this type of dress in the summertime—so playful and festive.

 

PAIR NO. 3 | Ava Necklace + Striped Side Button Maxi Dress

A patterned maxi dress is a statement in itself and really needs little added on. I love the simplicity of the Ava necklace with a dress like this, which already has tassels at the shoulder that almost feel like jewelry on their own. Since the pattern is black and white, both the silver and gold versions of the Ava work well with it and the choice is completely dependent on your preference and/or complexion.

 

PAIR NO. 4 | Tabitha Necklace in Ivory + Highpoint Tank Dress in Chevron

A classic dress like this one works well with a more bold necklace. The white Tabitha beads would pop nicely against the navy blue base.

 

PAIR NO. 5 | Bridget Tassel Earrings in Poppy Red + Starlight Side Tie Dress 

This mix works equally well for date night or an evening summer wedding. The dress has gorgeous (yet simple) details that I wouldn’t want to distract from with a necklace—plus the poppy red earrings work so well with an LBD.

If you're into minimalist style, shopping quality over quantity, things I find funny + probably way too many videos of my coffee and my Great Dane Hank... You've come to the right place.
