Fall Favorites | Splurge vs Steal

I don’t mind splurging on some core closet items but it is always nice to find a good deal too.  Everyone has different things they don’t mind spending a little more money on.  I rounded up a few Fall trends in a splurge and steal version- you decide which one you like best!

ONE | Lace Up Flats

This is one shoe trend I am loving for Fall.

Aquazzura $675 |Topshop Lace up Flats $98

TWO | Distressed Jeans

I finally jumped on the band wagon to try the Blank Denim Jeans.  They are under $100 and honestly really impressed me.  I still love my Rag and Bone jeans but for the price these are awesome.  They offer a bit more stretch which I really like.

Rag and Bone $220 | Blank Denim $88

 THREE | Leather Jacket

I have to say I own both these jackets.  I was lucky enough to score my Vince one several years ago on major sale and while I prefer it, the BB Dakota jacket is a great option for less money.  The BB Dakota is faux leather and the fit is great. I own the brown version.

Vince Leather Jacket $995 | BB Dakota Drape Jacket $95

FOUR | Stripe Clutch

I have lusted after this Clare V Clutch forever.  I was in Old Navy this week and saw an almost identical one. Both are great for year round.

Clare V $225 | Old Navy $29

FIVE | Plaid Blouse

I always love plaid come Fall.  I actually picked up the Loft version this week.  It is fabulous on (see below)

Equipment Blouse $268 | Loft Plaid Blouse $59.50

SIX| Fringe Bootie

I am convinced I need some fringe booties this Fall.

Aquazurra $995 | Sam Edelman $170

and if you perfer a bit thicker heel or no heel these are two great options.

Ivanka Trump $179 | Bettye Muller (comes in 4 colors) $159

SEVEN | Sweatshirt Dress 

Nothing better than a cozy sweatshirt dress.  Love it alone or over leggings.

AG Sweatshirt Dress $178 | Glamorous Sweatshirt Dress $59 (also in burgundy

EIGHT | Off Shoulder Blouse

You all know I love this trend.  I will be rocking it into Fall!

Joie Off Shoulder $268 | Eight Sixty Blouse $70

 NINE | Drape Neck Coat

This is one of my favorite styles of Fall/Winter Coats.

Vince Drape Neck Coat $675 | Dreamers Drape Neck Coat $64

TEN | Horn Necklace

Perfect for layering this Fall.

Tory Burch Horn $250 | Vince Camuto Horn $48

ELEVEN | Stripe Poncho 

Ponchos are great to toss on over any outfit.

Tejido Poncho $242 | BP Stripe Poncho $42

TWELVE | Pointed Toe Loafers 

I keep seeing pointed toe shoes everywhere for Fall. 

Nicholas Kirkwood $395 | Jeffery Campbell $99

THIRTEEN | Embriodered Denim Dress

Kate Spade $348 | Old Navy $39

 FOURTEEN | Bucket Tote

 I own a bucket tote and love it.  You can actually fit way more inside than you think.

Tory Burch Robinson Bucket Tote $520 | Sole Society Bucket Tote $59

FIFTEEN | Stripe Tee 

A stripe tee is a closet staple year round.  I actually love both these versions.

Rag and Bone Camden Tee  $125Lush Stripe Tee $34

    I love this post! I am going to need to try the Blank denim. And I have the BB Dakota jacket in brown too – the reason I bought it last fall was that it reminded me so much of that Vince one but for a fraction of the price. Maybe I need one in black as well 😉

    Great post! I always splurge on coats. I have had some really classic styles from Burberry to Armani and they are still what I reach for in my closet each year. Sometimes timeless over trend is better! Love that ON bag. Super find

    Great post! I don't mind spending the money on quality items I know I will get a ton of use out of, but a lot of trendy items I will spend less (and clothes I wear everyday with my kids). Thanks for the recommendations!
