Spring Save vs. Splurge

       Scallop Wedges: Splurge ($660) // Save ($59.99)
Silk Headscarves: Splurge ($425) // Save ($24.50)
  Denim Cutoffs: Splurge ($198) // Save ($24.99)
Basket Bags: Splurge ($168) // Save  ($43.99)
White Jumpsuits: Splurge ($439) // Save ($58)
Striped Skirts: Splurge ($430) // Save ($35)

The inspiration for this post came a couple weeks ago when I found these wedges online from DSW. I was literally so excited because I thought they looked almost identical to the Chloe ones I have been obsessing over, but clearly wasn't about to buy on a college budget. As soon as I ordered them I got to thinking how often I see items that remind me of designer pieces at a fraction of the cost. I thought I would compile some of my favorites for spring if you're looking to add some new pieces to your wardrobe and don't want to drop a ton of money.

In the process I found a ton of pieces that I can't wait to wear this spring! This bag is so trendy right now and the save option is a perfect alternative if you're looking to rock this trend but not looking to commit. I also love this striped skirt set way more than the pricier option! I can't wait to wear this out to dinner or on a date night this spring. 

I added both sides up (and yes, I do wish I would have put the "splurge" items on the right- whoops!) and the pricier side equaled a total of $2,320(!!) while the "save" side equaled a total of  $246.47! I loved putting together this post for y'all so be on the lookout for more save vs. splurge posts in the future!

I hope you all are having a great week so far! I'm basically just trying to get through the next two weeks of classes and then I'm heading home for a little bit (yay!!).
