Is it just us, or do you also feel like it's the weekend every time you walk into Madewell? We're talking about the sort of weekend that's warm enough for you to throw on a dress, hop on your bike, and ride around in a total blissful state, with your hair blowing in the wind. The label's inimitable washed and worn-in denim and vintage-meets-prep frocks are perfect for the girls who just want to play all day. Okay — and shop.
So, take a peek through the new catalog to see the way the spring collection's been styled, because, as you know, the masters behind Madewell never disappoint.
