Save or Splurge

holding Blondo booties $150 (size up 1/2) | on foot Melrose Ave booties $42

Here is a funny thing about this blogger life if I post all high end items then I get comments like “well that’s nice but not in my budget“. If I post all affordable items I get well “I want stuff that is going to last and the quality on this is cheap“. It’s almost a no win situation so instead I do A LOT of high and low cost items.

Take for example my weekend pumpkin outfit where I love my $18 Amazon dress AND my very expensive Louis Vuitton purse. I feel like in our life to be fiscally responsible I can splurge on something that I really love or know I’m going to wear a ton but then also save on other things.

I honestly feel like most of you are the same way… splurge a little save a little so today I’m going to share some of my favorite spurge vs save items.
