Spring Looks for Less

11 Mar

Spring styles make me so happy–maybe it’s because I love shedding layers and layers of clothing and embracing the warm sunshine, or maybe it’s just because I love buying new clothes.

Despite your feelings about J.Crew (go back to your roots! vs OMG NEON SPARKLE STRIPES!), I always have looked to their catalogs and lookbooks for inspiration.  But, along with the new era of style comes a new era of not so nice price points.

Here are some tips for recreating some great looks on a budget!

JCrew Floral Stripes

The J.Crew Way:

Floral Jacket + Gray Sweater + Striped Skirt + Metallic Pumps

= $1106 (for four pieces!)

the preppy leopard looks for less 1

The Preppy Leopard Way:

Floral Jacket ($20) + Gray Sweater ($25) + Striped Skirt ($20) + Metallic Pump ($26)

= $91 (you just saved 82%!)

jcrew chambray floral

The J.Crew Way:

Chambray Shirt + Floral Skirt  + Gladiator Sandals

=$388

the preppy leopard looks for less 2

The Preppy Leopard Way:

Chambray Shirt ($25) + Floral Skirt ($18) + Gladiator Sandals ($33)

= $76

    The price of the first J. Crew outfit blew my mind!! I love the chambray + floral look though – perfect for spring!

    I’m trying to save money and these are so tempting to just click and buy! I love the floral skirt and chambray shirt too.

      That’s just because we have great minds and all that jazz. 🙂
