‘These are all the the things we hoped she’d say.’ You know that feeling? We scroll through as many interviews in a given month as we create ourselves and it’s always a thrill when — whether a stylish designer or organic farmer — the interviewee serves up exactly what we wanted to read.
Joyce Lee is head of design at Madewell, and she embodies the laid-back but always stylish vibe of the women’s fashion brand. We asked the hard working mama to join our My Favorites series where we explore the wellness and lifestyle go-tos of some of the most interesting professionals out there. Her top picks and stylish insights are just the sort of accessible-chic gems we hoped she’d deliver. Get ready to get inspired…
