Splurge & Save

I've decided to add a new section to my posts that will showcase an outfit with a splurge version and a savings version. We all have a different opinion on when we want to spend vs when we want to save, as well as, different budgets that we need to adhere to. Now you have the option of choosing when you want to spend or save while still achieving the same look.

This outfit is comprised of savings and one investment piece. The savings can be found in the top, jeans, and coat.

The top is from Zara and I found it on clearance for $20! I have learned to always comb the sale racks at Zara because you never know what hidden gems you might find!

The jeans are by the brand Articles of Society, which has become one of my favorite brands for jeans. Articles of Society successfully combines affordable pricing and great quality in their jeans. Most of their jeans retail for around $60.

The coat is an amazing find that I picked up during the Nordstrom anniversary sale. Last year was the first time I really took advantage of this sale and I found some great pieces. (Pro tip - sign up for the credit card for early access. I shopped early this year and by the time I received this coat in the mail it was already out of stock online.)

The boots are the splurge of this outfit. They are are by Stuart Weitzman and were a very nice gift from my husband!  Over the knee boots are a great investment because they are functional and fashionable. They can be worn with both dresses and jeans, making them a versatile piece to finish off your look. 

Below I found several duplicates of the items I am wearing in both the splurge and save categories. Happy shopping!
