J. Who?

Let's be real here. I'd shop at J. Crew if I could. Buuuut I can't, right now. We have other expenses that come before $100 skirts, ya know? If I want to look like one of their cute n' classy, sweet n' sassy models, I have to find alternatives. 

Doesn't blue gingham, a bubble necklace, and a coral pencil skirt just scream "J. Crew"? Haha, this is definitely the cheap version! My version :) I have a friend who works at J. Crew, and I bet she's cringing at this post already. 
HAHA, sorry Jules! ;)
i'm awkward.
shirt: thrifted via Kirsten (similar) -- old navy
necklace: c/o LuLu*s  (similar)
bracelet: Sweetnessaboos Shop
watch: gift (super cheap option!)
skirt: Target (similar, similar)
shoes: c/o lulu's (similar)
So, there you go! My J. Crew copycat outfit. Maybe someday, I'll own the real deal. But for now, Target and Old Navy ain't lookin too shabby :P

I love this outfit! Aren't Target and Old Navy the best?? Very sad to live in a town with neither of them... booooo!

This is a great version! I know hoe you feel too! I would love to shop there but it is just far too much $$. That bracelet is so cute. I checked out her shop too and she has some great things. xx. McKenna Lou

Great outfit. I checked out a few of your other posts and like your style, so I started following you on Bloglovin' (today was my first visit to your blog). I look forward to more inspiration from you!

If only Jcrew was affordable...sigh. You nailed the knockoff look!

Honestly, I had never thought to even walk into a J Crew until I found the fashion blogging world. Their clothes are gorgeous and I'm super bummed I didn't take advantage of their amazing sale last month. This outfit is a great copycat! That skirt is adorable!

Pretty outfit... love the colors! That bubble necklace looks a bit smaller than the J. Crew version... I like yours better!

You are adorable. I love your outfit! I love JCrew, but only shop sale! I love their #2 pencil skirts, and have 3, however, I didn't pay full price for any one them, one was $45, the other was $35and the last was $25!

You are so cute! I absolutely love this outfit and I am the same way. As much as I wish I could, I can't afford J.Crew. So I am totally on the savvy "J.Crew" bandwagon. I definitely saw you featured on another blog a while back and I saw your post on a link-up today so I had to come look. I will definitely be stopping by again soon! :)

you are so beautiful! I love your haircut especially. when I go short again I'm totally getting this hairdo. anyway, I'm a huge fan of jcrew lookalikes! their prices are frankly quite disgusting and there's so many similar items out there for much MUCH cheaper. so way to go and be thrifty! Love this combination of colors too. that necklace was the perfect cherry to on top too. adorable!!!
