Inspired by...J Crew (Reader Request)

A reader sent in this photo from a recent J Crew email, and asked if I could recreate it for less. You can see all of the pieces used in the J Crew version HERE.

Total cost of this outfit = $913.50 (the boots alone are $350!)

Here is my interpretation of this look, assisted by reader Molly who sent in THIS ByCorpus sweater as an alternative to the J Crew Marled lambswool Apres cardigan above.

Product information can be found below the photo, and you can click on any image below to purchase. I wasn't able to find exact matches for the skirt or boots, so if you're interested in splurging on one item - I'd go for the J Crew skirt (just my opinion).

Sweater - $68 (click HERE for an alternative option for $34.99)
Button down plaid shirt - $38
Skirt - $59.50
Tights - $14
Socks - $4.80
Boots - $35.80
Bag - $48
Bracelets - $15.50 each
Watch - $38

Total cost = $337.10
(saving you $576.40 - and you could save even more by using items you already own like a black bag, a watch, etc)

you're a miracle worker, i like your picks WAY better than the add, they're more people friendly and not so commercialized.
