MonkeyBaby said...

Looks comfy but pulled together. To make it my style I'd add a scarf. Thanks for sharing.

Ashley said...

I love it. It is casual but very chic. I want those boots! I am always afraid of mixing brown and blacks, but this shows me how doable it is.

E Hayes said...

I'm excited for your outfits, especially since you say you have more of a 'causal' style...

I love the outfits and inspiration on other blogs like Chloe, Justine, and Kim... but let's face it, I wear jeans, cardis, and flats to work almost daily and own 1.. yes just 1, skirt... I can't wait to see what comfy/casual outfits you come up with!

Amber said...

great outfit jen. I love the over sized sweater.

Pamela said...

love this outfit jen! you should post your outfits I always love what you buy! is your sweater the haute hippie one or the VS one? its adorable.. and love the jeans as well!

J @ The Look 4 Less said...

Wow, thank you everyone for your comments/feedback so far! I'm glad you're liking this feature!

Brittany, Amber, Sarah, Montanagirl, Justine, anotherfishinthesea - Thank you!

Monkeybaby - A scarf is a great idea! I have a bunch of them but rarely wear them, I might have to try that next time I wear this outfit.

Ashley - Thank you! I used to be afraid of mixing browns and blacks but for some reason I just tried it one day and I love it! I think the cognac color of the boots is very versatile.

E Hayes - It sounds like you and I have similar styles! I hope that you'll continue to like the outfits I post! :)

Pamela - Thanks! My sweater is actually Wilfred from Aritzia, I just posted the Haute Hippie and VS versions since my sweater is not available online (and I purchased it back in July, so I'm not sure it's even available in stores any longer).

Chloe said...

Oh oh oh, thank you *so much* for the shout out! I can't wait to see more OOTD's on you- I like knowing there's a lovely lady somewhere in Iowa with style.

US MIDWESTERNERS NEED TO REPRESENT.

:D

This is a great weekend outfit. The boots really make it sing. I love seeing bloggers outfits...keep up the great work!

Mrs. B said...

I LOVE this new feature! Love to see what you're wearing! Keep em coming!

Miss K said...

Love it! I wear something very similar to this all the time! I love your boots!

Jennifer Held said...

I like this feature. But would love it even more if, instead of just a link to the splurge and deal styles, you used pictures as links. Similar to how you make your other posts. I like being able to see all of the alternatives. I only click on the ones I am interested in. I am forced to click on all of your links just to see what the pictures of the alternatives look like. Just a thought...

Also, do you have some type of "requests" form for your readers who have a specific designer item in mind, that you could help us find cheaper alternatives for? For example, I am interested in the nautical heels features on all of the Louis Vuitton resort ads right now. If I sent a picture of them to you, would you be able to find something similar for me and your other readers?

J @ The Look 4 Less said...

Chloe- You're very welcome! You know I love your style!! :)

Faith J, Mrs. B, Miss K - Thank you!!

Jennifer - Thank you so much for your feedback, I will definitely change the way I post the alternatives (in fact, I'll go ahead and change it now.

I don't currently have a request form, as of now you can just email me at lookforless@gmail.com and I will add it to the list of things I'm keeping an eye out for. I will look into the Louis Vuitton resort ads to see if I can find anything similar (but maybe email me a photo if you can!), and I'll also look into putting a form on the site to make it a little easier to make a request.

Thanks again for your feedback, I really appreciate it!

I love this development! Your look is totally something I'd wear (and do wear quite frequently). Keep 'em coming.

J @ The Look 4 Less said...

Budget Babe - Thank you! I will definitely keep this feature, it seems like it has been a hit!
