I absolutely LOVE searching for a deal… DUH! I am always shopping online, way past my bedtime usually, looking for trends that I love, while trying to save money at the same time. For this early fall installment of splurge versus steal, I am sharing some fall staples that are making waves this season and some investment pieces where it’s OK to spend a bit more $$$ because you’ll keep them for the long term!
Denim | Jeans
Let’s talk denim… a staple for every wardrobe, every season, and every woman. It’s a must and one of my favorite go-to styles is the black skinny. Dress it up or down, it’s a necessity and one that you must ensure fits well!
The Denim Dress
Since we’re already in the denim department, let’s talk about that fun little everyday dress that works well for autumn. Pile on a scarf or cardigan, booties or flats, and style it up as you see fit… so many amazing options for this on-trend silhouette.
Peep Toe Booties
Moving onto shoes, a good pair of booties can take you anywhere! I love the peep toe option, because you can show off those fall nail polish colors and they work well with pants, dresses, skirts… any kind of bottom you pair with them!
For all you accessory lovers like myself, let’s switch gears a bit and focus on some high-style handbags for a minute or two… this season, it’s all about the feminine classic look and these ladylike bags will have everyone you know drooling [or buying the exact same one as you]…
I couldn’t get enough of these last fall and I’m SO happy to see them back again this season… pair them with some leggings and an oversized top, and my daily “work from home” ensemble is complete! With so many fun options, from pompoms to tassels to bold color palettes, there are a ton of choices with slip-ons and I have a feeling I’ll find a few more that need to come home with me.
The Wrap Dress
Whether you’re at the office or hitting the town for a dinner date, the sophisticated wrap dress is an ensemble that’s flattering for so many body shapes and one that works well year round, especially when paired with a long cardigan and tall boots!
Finally, let’s not forget about my cozy friend known as the feminine sweatshirt. I love this because it’s cute and classic, but updated with bows and fun little details that make it special…
Cheers to wrapping up another week… we are headed off to the lake with some friends for an adults-only weekend, while the girls live it up with their Mimi and Pap!! This school schedule is EXHAUSTING and I think some alcoholic beverages are necessary for making it to Friday 😉
