Fall Splurge and Save

Fall Splurge and Save

When the temps start to drop, I start to crave a major fall shopping spree. Like, gimme all the fuzzy sweaters, chunky boots and cozy cardigans. Fall clothes can get expensive quickly since boots and sweaters are two of the main things that we shop for.

I’ve created what, in my opinion, may be my best roundup to date. I’m showing you ALL of the hottest fall designer pieces, and similar pieces at a lower price point. I LOVE all of these designers, and I would buy every single one of their items if money grew on trees, but it doesn’t and I can’t so for now, designer-inspired pieces will do the trick. I took quality into consideration, so you won’t see $10 tops that are going to fall apart. Each “save” item is a modest price with quality that you can count on to last several seasons. I also tried to avoid showing replicas and knock-offs that would offend the original designers. Each of these pieces are unique in their own way and draw inspiration from popular designers.

I hope that this post helps you look hella cute while saving some major coin! ;)

You can shop each item with the links below the photos.


Stuart Weitzman OTK Boots | American Eagle OTK Boots

A classic OTK boot that would look great with dresses and skirts!


ALLSAINTS Leather Jacket | Levi’s Moto Jacket

Fell in love with this store in NYC and had to find something similar to the jacket that I would have literally traded an appendage to take home with me.

You’ll wear this top all the time! To class, the grocery store, over your gym clothes, in the carpool line, with jeans for date night, you name it,

Blank NYC has amazing quality, so splurge if you can, but the similar option is great if you just want to have this style jacket for a season or two.


Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Sneakers | Steve Madden Leopard Sneakers

The most requested item via Instagram stories! I love the Steve Madden version of these star sneakers. I honestly wouldn’t go for the super cheap $30 dupes because I bought them and they hurt my feet. This is a great option for comfort and style.
