The Look for Less Thursday: Neon Jeans

So this weeks look for less feature is yet another J Crew look. I will first start off by saying that I love J Crew, I love their clothes and I think they are great quality, but I also think there are things worth splurging for, and those things which are not.

case and point: Neon pink toothpick jeans from J Crew, normally $125.

Of course these are adorable, but I ran into these Neon skinnies at Aeropostale for $30 and never looked back

Jeans: Aeropostale($30)| Top: Forever 21($17.80)| Cardigan: Forever 21($12.80)| Bracelets: Forever 21(all under $10)| Shoes: Charlotte Russe($10)


Why spend $125 dollars on a pair of colored jeans when you can spend 30 on almost the exact same color? I usually never shop at Aeropostale, I think I have like 3 things from there total, mostly because it just seems like a pre-teen store, but I was walking by and saw those on the display right in the front of the store, so I stopped in, and actually loved the way they fit! They are out of them online, but they may still be in stores. They also have a neon light orange, a neon mint, and I think a blue? The girls at the store told me to get 2 sizes smaller than my normal size because they loosen up a lot. I was skeptical because they were pretty tight and so I only went down one size. I wore them around for a couple hours the next day and ended up going back in an exchanging them for 2 sizes smaller just like they told me because they loosened up so much. So if you do get these, PLEASE get 2 sizes smaller, they will be wicked tight at first, but I promise, once they loosen up, you will be glad you got smaller.

can I also say how much I love this cheetah print top from Forever 21? I don't hide my love for all things cheetah, and this top is perfect in every way! I love the way it fits, its a light material, and its super long! I can't get enough of it, I seriously have been wearing it back to back more times than I am willing to admit.

  2. I love your freckled skin on your arms! (Yeah, I know it's weird that I noticed that...I'm really not a creeper.) And your nails. I've been debating going to get mine down lately.

  3. 2 sizes smaller, wow :)
    love those pants, and i totally agree with you giving a lot of many for color pants that you are probably going to wear only this summer its pretty dumb.

  5. I actually snagged those exact J. Crew ones for about $43 - they were on final sale with 30% off randomly on top of that, and I came back to the store later with my student ID and I got almost $30 more taken off. Haha!
