Splurge or Save?

Image

Which do you prefer? I love the faux fur front panel of both of these styles. One is just slightly less expensive than the other. With the ability to find your high-end designer pieces for less, do you opt to save or splurge?

For something trendy like this, I would say save and go with the Mango top on the right. One can’t be too sure how long a trend like this will last – or even if you will find many ways to wear a top like this. Though, in the defense of splurging, I am sure when both pieces are in front of you, you’ll be able to feel the luxury in the MSGM top on the left. Would you agree?

I thought I would start a new series like this featuring items of the high and low variety – what do you guys think? XX

Sometimes all you need is a great fitting blazer, an “essential” handbag, a funky pair of brogues, and a dash of gold. Am I right?

While my wardrobe has simplified somewhat significantly since having a baby – I have always been drawn to the basics. I think it’s more of a challenge to make the pieces that you feel the most comfortable look chic. But comfort, sometimes, is the mood of the day.

J. Brand jeans are my go-to jean, I have quite a few pairs but always reach for these. They are worn in at the knees a bit and have just the right amount of stretch. The blazer is my mom’s from more than thirty years ago – vintage. It’s a traditional schoolboy blazer. The brogues were an impulse buy from H&M. The bag is my most favorite bag. I picked it up from Moda Operandi and it’s by designer Clare Vivier based out of Los Angeles. Just bought another clutch from her which I can’t wait to feature on the blog!!

It’s been a long time since I have done an outfit post – I apologize. It’s been a crazy few months. Going from a big belly to a beautiful baby taking its place – it’s been a whirlwind!

I picked up these Zara shorts when I was still pregnant and unable to fit in them. The Alexander Wang Anjelika heels are a pair of those gorgeous nude and neutral heels that you can just wear with everything. Plus they give my legs that length that I love – perfect with a pair of high-waisted shorts that add length already. The purse is a beauty by Clare Vivier, one of my favorites ever, and is personalized via a custom design from Moda Operandi.

What are you guys getting into this weekend? XO
