Look for Less

Thank you guys so much for your opinions and feedback (wow, there were a lot, you guys blow me away!!) regarding painting the new Kitchen! I think I know which option we'll go with, and hopefully I can tackle it after Spring Break. (So obviously you know I didn't choose Option #4!)

I posted this pic to InstaGram last weekend and apparently this combo was a big hit! This is seriously the best field jacket that ever was...especially for the price! It's quite possible I've worn it three times since it arrived Friday. I feel a {5 Ways} post coming on with it!!

Field Jacket | Gray Tee (similar) | Distressed Jeans | Booties (similar)

I've wanted one for awhile, but wasn't willing to pay a lot for it...this one gives me the same look, but for one-third the cost of others I've seen. I love a good Look-for-Less, so I rounded up some of the better ones I've seen lately. To be fair, I listed full price for each item, even though a good sale can sometimes knock down the higher priced item to a more competitive level.

Jean Jacket // High  |  Low

I have this exact jean jacket too....I would have to say it's one of my top 5 wardrobe staples. I actually have two...one sized larger for layering over sweaters, and a smaller one for a fitted look with tanks, tees and sundresses. But even buying two was a bargain compared to the high-dollar ones!

Jean Jacket White Tee | Patterned Shorts | Pom Pom Scarf (similar)
Striped Bag | Bag Charm (it's almost time to bring that baby back out!)

Here's a few more Looks-for-Less to consider, some of which I already have...

Hi Sugarplum | Look for Less
Floral Shorts // High  |  Low
Floral Shift Dress // High  |  Low

Hi Sugarplum | Look for Less
Striped Pullover Top // High  |  Low
Plaid Shirt // High  |  Low

Hi Sugarplum | Look for Less
Cord Necklace // High  |  Low
Crystal Statement Necklace // High  |  Low

Mirrored Aviators // High  |  Low
Leather Tote // High  |  Low

Now granted the quality isn't always going to be comparable on the Low items, but I've had many of them for years, and they've held up great. Plus, I'm much more forgiving when a $25 jacket wears out than a $100 one. And I always scratch and lose my sunglasses...so better a $12 pair than $170! Besides, I'm usually ready for new styles after a few years, and don't necessarily want everything in my closet to last a decade! #fickle 

Update: I just noticed Old Navy has 30% off your entire order, today only, no code necessary! That makes the Low, even Lower! #howlowcanyougo 

What's your favorite Look-for-Less? Have you seen any other good ones? Happy Hump Day, lovebugs!

  14. I tracked down the khaki versrion of the field jacket. Really loved the color and the open collar at the top. Did not love the cinch at the bottom or the way the hem rose up in back ... not level from front to back. So I regretfully put it back. I'm trying to only buy the things that make be feel totally fabulous.
