Let’s go back to five years ago when I went to Boston to go visit Kelly, one of my very best friends from college. Besides for this trip being one of the memorable and FUN vacations that I’ve taken to date, (Kelly knows how to entertain!), I also was introduced to one of my very favorite stores ever… Madewell!
The only problem was that my new fave store, with the cutest boyfriend cardigans, adorable silky shirts, and perfect chambray button-downs, was ONLY located in Boston at the time and had yet to expand to other states, and by other states, I mean Chicago. GAH!
Now let’s fast forward to two Octobers ago and Madewell opened up one (extremely anticipated) store very close to where I work. And soon after expanded to the city, in a neighborhood right near were I live. Can you feel the excitement oozing out of my words?!?!?! Because when I heard the news myself, it was a “YAY for ME” type of day… and let’s be honest, millions of other chic chicas too!
