Reader Question!

I recently found this email in my inbox...

Hi Jill! First I must say I love your blog and have been a faithful reader since discovering you a few months ago. As a mom on the go, I love the way you incorporate easy, budget friendly style into everyday life.

So, I just got a great deal on this Old Navy coat (in black) [see below]... when I put it on, it just feels way more expensive and glamorous than the price tag lets on. But, in order to make the 3/4 length sleeves work when it gets colder, I need some elbow length gloves. I found a pair of black leather at TJ's but they were still $50. Just a little too much right now. Any thoughts or suggestions where I might find a great pair (don't need to be leather, by the way) for about half that price?

Thanks so much!!!

This is such a great question, because 3/4 length sleeved coats and outerwear are popping up in stores this season, but for those of us that live in frigid temps, like Stacy, and myself, we need something to keep our little forearms warm. And what a fun fashion statement to cover those arms in a cheap and chic way!

Here are some of the options I suggested to Stacy, all very chic and within her budget!

Have a burning question for me? Email me at goodlifeforless @! I will try my VERY hardest to respond to them all!

Thanks Stacy!

This is fantastic, I have a coat I adore with 3/4 length sleeves and was at a lost on how to keep my arms warm!!! Great solution, Jill.

I love that coat! It definitely looks more expensive than it really is. Those two-toned gloves would be a great addition to the look :).

The two-toned ones are adorable, I just might have to pick up two pairs :)

Stacy said...

Yay! So glad my question made it to your blog. I hoping to go shopping this weekend so I can put your suggestions to use! Thanks again!
