Save or Splurge

1. Necklace: Forever 21 // 2. Sweater: H&M // 3. Skirt: Hinge
4. Bag: Forever 21 // 5. Pumps: Sam Edelman // 6. Lipstick: L’Oreal

7. Necklace: Nadri (Anniversary Sale) // 8. Sweater: Topshop Unique // 9. Bag: Chloe
10. Skirt: Topshop (Anniversary Sale) // 11. Lipstick: YSL 

A-line skirts and suede are two upcoming trends for fall.  I have styled two options - both budget and  investment options; however, a few of the splurge items, like the skirt and necklace are part of Nordstrom's Anniversary sale - so they are marked down significantly until August 3.

When I look at the save vs. splurge options, it reminds me of how in life it is so easy to become consumed by what others have - such as more expensive clothes or a better house.  I am guilty of this and with so many style blogs, it is easy to see what others have, which makes it even more of a challenge.  It is a daily reminder to be happy with what I have - and especially to be thankful.  


  1. This look is gorgeous and definitely splurge worthy, but who could pass up the save option????

  2. These are great finds! I am all for splurging on bags or shoes, but everything else I will try to find a way to save!
