Alexa Chung and Madewell madness.

For those that like my FaceBook page, you already know what this post is going to be about. Alexa Chung. And Madewell.

Allow me to take you on a journey through my thought process.

First, Alexa Chung is by far my all-time, biggest style inspiration. Period. Simple makeup and hair paired with style combinations that look effortlessly pulled together, mix classic and edge and are complimentary to her shape. Summarized in three words: patterned, layered and leggy. Here are some of my fave looks to-date.

THEN, while reading my InStyle the other day I saw she was working with Madewell to create a line of clothing... OUT ON MY BIRTHDAY!

SO, I decided to cruise Madewell's site today only to discover their amazingly fantastical fall lookbook which - naturally - I just had to share. While not a huge fan of the styling (what's with the not ironed shirts and misaligned sweaters? C'mon!), I can definitely see it shining a ton of inspiration on my wardrobe and is making me kind of want to get suspenders! Again, all photos from Madewell's fall lookbook, here.

And, for those that haven't seen Alexa Chung's InStyle spread, go and buy the mag immediately. She is stunning and her clothing choices are unique and every bit her style.

love the calf-grazing skirt with tie up booties

loving the cropped pants (even though not ironed) and the oxford shoes

like the monochromatic (fix your shirt!) belted layers with
unexpected twist of the hiking boots

want - no NEED - this dress
cute cardi but why's it got to be all crooked?

fuchsia and yellow, such a strong yet warm color combo
also am going to need that bag, STAT.

suspender obsession beginning... now.
love the suede tie up booties
