Items in the catalog are most likely to restock now that the sale is open to the public. Everything else is a total gamble on whether or not we'll see it again! And since we're totally BFFs we're here to help and will be updating you on restocks throughout the Anniversary sale HERE. Pin it, bookmark it and keep an eye on it, because we've got all your restocks covered in one place!

A Perfect Tee

Over 1000 near perfect reviews is pretty compelling evidence to add this Caslon tee to your cart and never look back! I love this super soft cotton tee and think it fits really, really very flattering. The blue and white stripes are such a classic color combo that pairs perfectly with overalls or a cute pair of skinnies or even a white skirt! Pieces that can easily be dressed up or down and layered as the weather changes are the BEST kind of pieces to stock up on at the Anniversary Sale. This tee checks all the boxes!

5 Star Skinnies

All the Wit & Wisdom denim included in the Anniversary Sale this year is blowing my mind! Every single pair is so, so flattering. Crazy flattering, you guys. You also get to size down two sizes in these jeans which hello, who doesn't love that?! These top rated, UNDER $50 skinnies are the most insanely flattering of the bunch and have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of perfect reviews! They have these cool power mesh panels that lift and hold in all the right places. Yes and YES! The legs are cute. The bum is cute. They're just really cute and insanely affordable.

THE Coziest Cardi

The Barefoot Dreams cardigan is always a hot Anniversary Sale item! They sell out almost every year. With almost 3000 top-rated, flawless reviews I'll be shocked if this cardigan stays in stock long! It's the magical unicorn of sweaters because it feels like you're wearing a blanket or the very coziest robe, but you still look like a totally normal (cute) person!

I can wear this thing literally ANYWHERE! This is a cardigan I absolutely LIVE in year round. They're totally amazing and they last forever. If you don't already own one NOW is the very BEST time to get a deal on one. During the sale this sweater is $76.90 and $116 if you wait!

A Staple Tote

Madewell totes are kind of THE best when it comes to basic and cute that's also SUPER high quality. They're everything you need and nothing that you don't! They're insanely highly rated and the perfect bag if you need to be able throw everything in your bag and just go! I love all their totes, but this spacious extra large one is the perfect size for a laptop and all your essentials (Like snacks. Snacks are very essential)!! The price point of $131.90 (reg $198) is so good for real, rich, buttery soft leather!
