OOTD - Madewell Transport Tote



It's a beautiful day here in Toronto, and in typical Canadian style I am shedding all of my layers and busting out all of my summer gear at the mere sight of the sun.  Today was hardly beach weather, but my poor climatized body could not tell the difference.  Before I knew it, I was dressed in my shortest dress, bright scarf and a hat I typically reserve for tropical resort vacations.  The best part about the incredible weather was the first day that I could bring my summer bag into rotation - the Madewell Transport Tote in English Saddle.  I may be jumping the gun a little bit in anticipation of summer - but I couldn't be happier.  Read on for additional photos and full outfit details.

Sandals - Old Navy, Hat - Forever 21

I really can't say enough about the Madewell Transport Tote.  On the way to Chicago a few weeks ago, in the airport, I saw a woman with the most beautiful leather tote.  After creepily staring at it for longer than I care to share, I finally got the courage to ask her where she got the bag from.  She had barely finished answering before I had whipped my phone out to order the exact same one.  The leather is of fantastic quality and the tote is so light - perfect for the summer.  Plus, Madewell does indeed ship to Canada (a huge plus) and quickly at that - I received my transport tote less than a week after ordering it. I may have a few notches knocked off my social etiquette for how I handled the situation, but I definitely have no regrets.



It may be a little early to anticipate the arrival of summer, but this Noob will celebrate the nice weather wherever she can.

Did you get great weather today as well?

    1. I am seriously late to the party for Madewell - I had not even heard of them until my airport-stalking incident! I love the tote as well, and can't wait to take it on my next weekend trip.
