You know where I'd like to shop and party every week? MADEWELL. I had such a blast co-hosting a summer party with Madewell earlier this month. Of course I asked Kate Donaldson to be there to capture everything. I'm so excited to share the photos with you!
We had french macaroons from D Bar, arguably the best EVER. Seriously. If you live in Denver, drive there right now and try one. You can finish reading this post later.
This lemon rosemary soda from the Backyard Soda Co. was not only delicious, but SO much fun to style... I'm now obsessed with drinking everything out of jelly jars tied with twine bows.
Along with the giant and uh-mazing macaroons, we also had fruit in snow cone cups. Highly recommend for your next summer party. They're easy to make and so much fun to photograph - clearly that's the most important thing. Oh plus they're healthy and stuff.
Madewell asked me to pick out my favorite summer items. When I realized I couldn't fit the entire store on one rack, I opted for a few dresses, some chambray shirts, anything with polka dots, and one of the cutest jackets in the whole world. I know, it's summer. But sometimes it's cold in the evenings... you know, when you're inside and the AC is on.
After the snacks came the shopping and general merrymaking...
I'm a big fan of party favors. Giving them, receiving them. Doesn't matter. These little succulents matched the Madewell aesthetic so well. They not only made great favors, but they were the perfect decor during the party.
