Guest Blogger - Renee from Style with a Story

Hello! I'm Renee, and I blog over at Style with a Story. I'm so happy to be guest blogging at Everyday Fashion and Finance while Meghan is having the time of her life in Ireland and Scotland (I'm so jealous!). I've been a huge fan of Meghan's blog since the first day. Like me, Meghan is a fashionista on a budget and has incredible tips on saving money, getting the look for less and recognizing splurge worthy classics. I love knowing that I'm not the only budget conscience fashionista out there...all of us gals on a budget need to stick together! I have found so many deals and steals from Meghan and others who share their secrets and finds:)

I always say that you don't have to spend a fortune to look like a million bucks- and I am a firm believer in that!

Recently, Meghan did a post on finding the J.Crew look for less at Old Navy. See this post for the details. I was amazed at what a great look-a-like Old Navy produced, but the best part was the price!

Regarding Meghan's price per wear rule, it was not worth it for me to spend $150 on the J.Crew Liberty shirt, but it was absolutely worth spending $25 at Old Navy!  I decided to steal rather than splurge on this item.

Here's how I styled it:

Outfit Details
Steve Madden Flats - sold out, but loving these // J.Crew Factory Pearls
J.Crew Factory Bracelet // Bakelite bangles from an old antique shop
Earrings - old, but similar style at J.Crew Factory


  1. I love it! SO cute! I would love to be in Ireland or anywhere for that matter. :)

    1. Me too!! I've never been and would love to go! I'm living vicariously through her instagram photos!!

  2. I love that you guest blogged for Meghan! Loving that you got this shirt, that seems identical to JCrew's, but at a fraction of the price! I'm always a huge fan of your "arm parties" on instagram. Keep up the stylish work!
