Shopping with me: J Crew and Madewell Sale

Lots of great sales going on right now and I was very excited to see J Crew and Madewell running an additional 30% off sale promo!  Unfortunately it ended online but I wanted to post my faves from the sale as the sale prices in stores are often time better than online.  For the ones that I didn't mention the price, it's the same online but the ones that I noted the price, it's cheaper in stores.

Schoolboy Blazer - wearing size 00
Please excuse the fact that my pants are the exact same color as the blazer so it looks like I'm wearing a weird orange suit!  I do love the schoolboy blazer and own it in several colors.  This orange is perfect for the fall but I passed as I didn't need another blazer right now.

Dream V-Neck Sweater - ($49.99) not on sale online - wearing size Small
Tippi Sweater ($49.99) not on sale online - wearing XXS
I'm a fan of bright sweaters with jeans or dark cords so I loved the neon yellow sweater.  It's a cashmere blend and very soft.  I tend to size way up on sweaters as I don't really like tight fitting sweaters.  For the Tippi, I tend to get the XS or the Small (see the small on me here) but I do love the Tippi, it's one of my favorite styles.  I tried on the XXS just to see how it fit but yeah, too tight and a bit short on the length for my taste.

Liberty Perfect Shirt - Wearing size 0 
Cashmere Cable Sweater ($149.99) not on sale online - wearing XXS
I love the look of the printed button down underneath a sweater.  I tried it with this combo and the one below and thought it would be a good way to mix things up.  I didn't get either but will be trying this look out with what I currently have in my closet.
Rugby Stripe Boatneck - ($19.99) - wearing XS

And then onto Madewell which I found lots and lots of cute stuff.  In stores, everything was additional 30% off like J Crew was having.  Online, Madewell is running extra 25% off sale items and free shipping over $100, use code YIPEE.  In stores, the additional sale makes it final sale but it doesn't look like it does online.  Madewell tends to run more true to size for me than J Crew so everything I'm wearing below is what I normally take in sizes.

Leopard Spot Tee ($19.99)
Newsprint Jacket ($99.99 - it's actually cheaper online!) 
 I have a shirt very similar to the Leopard print one from Forever 21 so I didn't get this one but thought it was a cute top to wear under cardigans and blazers.  And also for $19.99 plus 30% off, it's a great deal!  The jacket is really cute and fit nicely in the shoulders and arms.  I'm trying to wean myself off jeackets and blazers since I buy them all the time so passed but I do like it.

Dotted Silk Boyshirt (not on sale) 
 
I need more sweaters as I have more blouses than anything in my closet and loved the colors on this cozy striped sweater.  I have a few of their boyshirts but have no idea why this one is so long on me!  I guess it would be fine tucked in but it really was much longer than their other ones.  I love the polka dot jeans but since I already have a pair I passed.

Dotted Chambray Boyshirt (not on sale) 
Floral Jeans ($39.99)
Skinny Cords ($59.99) not on sale online
  
Madewell is my favorite for jeans and cords as they fit me really well so was very happy to see all the markdowns on them.  I was pretty tempted to bring home the floral jeans on the left (for less than $30, it was such a good price) but I knew I'd get more wear out of the gray floral ones so got those instead.  And these cords are SO soft.  They are the thinner much finer cords which I find to be more comfortable.  I showed much restraint not buying them because I love how comfy they are but my closet is full of colored pants already and I knew that I just wouldn't wear these as much.

The orange cords that I'm wearing throughout the post are also from Madewell. They are the Skinny Ankle Cords and fit true to size.  The polka dot top that I'm wearing on the first picture is from OASAP.  Also wearing our Enamel Bow Pendant and if you want a bow for your phone too, you can get it here!
