Notes from Madewell HQ: Weekend Getaway Essentials

We look forward to sunny mini-breaks as much as anyone (in fact, we’re counting down the seconds until Memorial Day weekend) so we deemed it the perfect time to ask some stylish ladies here at the office: What’s the one Madewell item you’ll be bringing along for fun in the sun?


Joyce Lee, accessory design whiz

The Turnabout Sandal

“The mini wedge heel makes it supereasy to run around in. Plus, they’ll go with anything I pack.”


Susan Cernek, resident wordsmith

Bamboula Ltd. Beach Bag.

“The woven texture makes it beach-ready indeed, but the dark, unflashy hue means I can wear it once the sun goes down (or away entirely, come fall).”


Alice Bucaille, art director/guru

The Tanksuit in Solid

“It’s simple yet sexy and I like how it dips low in the back. I wear the Two-Tone Chambray Shirt as a cover-up.”


Sun Choe, merchandise maven

Hepcat Shades in Tortoise

“I love the shape and they double as sunnies for my son in a pinch.”
