Now that summer’s in full effect, we’re plotting and scheming some serious warm-weather getaways here at our homebase. We’ve gathered some travel-hungry members of team Madewell to find out where they’re headed next —and what they’re bringing with them.

Angela Hu, social media star
Soft Embroidery Cropped Shirt

I’m going to Napa, California, for my sister’s bachelorette party and since it’s going to be really hot (heat wave!), I’m bringing this top—the white hue and loose cut will keep me cool during wine tastings.


Ashish Gurung, design guru
Herschel Supply Co.® Parcel Suitcase

While I’m staycationing for most of this summer to enjoy the city when everyone is away, I’ll head to Belize right before fall for some oceanside fun. I can fit all my beachwear, souvenirs and then some in this camo-print suitcase—plus, it’s really easy to spot in a sea of black bags.

Denim Cutoff Shorts in Wave Wash

What says California cool and comfort better than a pair of denim cutoffs? I’m bringing mine along for the big drive down the coast from San Francisco to San Diego. Along with taking a million photographs, I plan on stopping by Big Sur, San Ysidro Ranch and, of course, Venice Beach in LA.


Christie Young, web design whiz
Hepcat Shades

This summer I’ll be spending my vacation hiking Mount Katahdin in Baxter State Park, Maine. And while that climb doesn’t leave much room for sundresses or swimsuits, I’ll definitely have my Hepcat Shades on at all times (the wind is supposed to be crazy up there).
