Save vs Splurge Fall Trends

top fall 2020 trends plaid shacket


HIKING BOOTS : Save (Only $60) // Splurge

SHACKET (PLAID SHIRT JACKET) : Save (Only $40 on sale) // Splurge

Happy Friday!

I have to say the "shacket" trend has definitely become a hot item.  It seems like everyone is buying them - and they are selling out everywhere.  I found two options - the "save" option which a great price - and a fun purple plaid (plus it is only $40 on sale).  And, then there is the classic black and white one.

Another trend that is still going strong are these shearling-lined hiking boots. I found this almost identical "save" option for only $60.

In addition to you hiking boots, combat boots have become very popular this fall.  These combat boots are one of my favorites.  I love the mix between a combat style and ski boot.

This cute color blocked sweater is 30% off.

Happy Wednesday!

I know Hallmark Christmas movies start this weekend - and Nordstrom (and other stores) have started to run their Christmas gift guides.  Nordstrom Rack even has Black Friday deals on Stuart Weitzman boots.   

I think it is a little too early to start decorating and shopping for Christmas.  The leaves are still changing, and it is the middle of October.  

Although, I have to say, the other day I felt like getting out my Christmas decorations.

My Fall Purchases + Most Popular Items



Striped Sweater (Only $25) // Tunic Sweater (with Matching Skirt)

Happy Friday!

I learned a new word today - "shacket".  It is the combination of a "shirt" and a "jacket" - or what I have been referring to as a "shirt jacket".  I bought this "shacket" (or shirt jacket) earlier this year; however, the fit was off a little for me, so I returned it (but I loved the neutral colors).  Yesterday, I found this one - it is really a "jacket" but it has the look of a "shacket" and was over 50% off.

So, I am not doing a lot of shopping this fall - because let's be real - where am I going.  However, I am still working from home - and on Zoom calls - so some new sweaters (and nice sweatshirts) are always fun to have.  And, I have bought some warmer jackets and fun boots - because all my going out has consisted of eating outside.  I have to say - last weekend it was pretty chilly out at night - but with heat lamps - it was toasty warm.  So, as long as the heat lamps and weather stays somewhat temperate - I hope to continue to eat out. 

MY FALL PURCHASES

I just bought this plaid jacket for 55% off.

This favorite sweater of mine is 60% off.

This cozy sherpa sweatshirt for $21.

My Fall Boot Collection + Favorites

winona ankle booties, diana von furstenberg dakota lace up boots walden sam edelman boots
Happy Tuesday!

I thought I would share some of my favorites from the fall boot collection in my closet.   You may noticed a trend.  I have four pairs of the Sam Edelman Winona booties.  I have to say I am thankful because I only paid for the white ones.  The other three I got through promotional deals and sponsorships.  Also, one thing is for sure, I never pay full price for boots - because EVERYTHING goes on sale!  All of these boots I bought on sale.  I found those two ankle booties during a promotional sale at Sam Edelman - they were both only $48!  And, several of the others I found on Nordstrom Rack.

I should also mention that I have become very picky about what I buy - and only buy comfortable boots.  I try to stay with a 2-3 inch heel for comfort (and style).  Any more than a 3 inch heel, and I can't walk as quickly in them.  Any less than 2 inches, and they don't give me the height I am looking for.  Since I am only 5'5' - I like to be a little taller.

As far as comfort, the Winona booties are really comfortable.  That is probably why I have bought more than one pair.  I know my husband makes fun of me for buying more than one of something - but I really just think it is what girls do - or at least me.  Anyone else do this?

FIVE Tips to Make Wiser Shopping Decisions

FIVE IMPORTANT TIPS WHEN SHOPPING
When it comes to shopping, it is easy to impulse buy and end up with something that does not fit, is too trendy, does not coordinate with what you already have in your closet, or is just something you do not feel comfortable wearing. Here are some tips to help you make wiser and more strategic shopping decisions. 

#1 Cost vs Wear 
One of the most important things to consider when buying something new is how many times you will wear the item and what it costs. You want to compare the overall cost to the amount of wear. An expensive item that will not be worn that often is not a good investment; however, if you will wear it often for many seasons, then that is a better investment. 

#2 Comfort 
Another thing to consider is how comfortable the item is to wear. If it is something that does not fit or you are not comfortable, then do not buy it. If you have to make justifications, then do not buy it. If the item is not a “wow” or you “love it” right from the moment you try it on, then it is not worth the money. Those items will most likely end up taking up closet space - and never get worn. 

#3 Quality 
It is important to consider the quality of an item. If it something that is not made well and will not hold up after washing, then it is not worth the money - even if it is really cheap. It is easy to buy things that do not cost a lot, but end up getting tossed because they fell apart. 

#4 Coordinates + Versatile 
When buying something new it is important to consider how the item will coordinate with the other items in your closet. If it something that will not match anything you own and you have to buy something else to go with it, then it might not be the wisest decision. You want to buy versatile items that you can mix and match with items that already exist in your closet. 

#5 Trendy vs Classic
Trends come and go - and some very quickly. When buying a trendy item - consider the cost and think about how many times you will wear it before it is out of style. Classic pieces are some of the best staple pieces. They are items that you can wear over multiple seasons - and will not go out of style.
