Splurge (or Save) On These Fall Fashion Essentials

It’s no secret that fall is my favorite season. The weather is as close to perfect as it can get and I love few things more than slipping into a pair of loafers, sweater weather, accessorizing with an oversized scarf, and then there’s the suede bags. I’m not one to buy anything too trendy, and prefer to invest in timeless pieces that I am fairly confident I’ll love in the years to come. So here are some of the essentials to splurge or save on this season.

Vince

The Dreamiest Cashmere Sweater

*splurge+ I bought this last year and wore it so often that I got it in another color. And then one more. I know, I know, but I did get them 25% off and wore it at least once a week if not more. It's the softest cashmere ever and can be dressed up or down.

This scarf is definitely a splurge and I've gotten mine (I have a few) on sale, but I've worn them year after year. They're perfect for travel or everyday.

Veja

White Leather Sneakers

It took some serious searching to find these but I did (in one size). Magically, I found them back in stock here. They took a day or two to break in (felt a little stiff) but I've been wearing them a lot lately and they're very comfortable now.

These aren't leather but they're a great, budget-friendly option if you're looking for a cute white sneaker.

Cuyana

Structured Suede Tote

*splurge* I use my leather Cuyana tote all the time. It's large enough to hold my 15 in. laptop and other daily essentials.

Loeffler Randall

Suede Booties

*splurge* I bought these last year and the brand brought them back again this year so that has to mean something, right? But really, they're cute, comfortable, and look great with everything.

Leather Jacket

*THE Splurge* One of the pricier things I've ever bought (maybe the most) but I've had it for years and wear it all the time. Purchased on sale, of course, and so worth it.

Madewell

High Rise Skinny Jeans

If you haven't tried high waisted jeans, I can't recommend them enough. My madewell ones fit so well. They're comfortable and stretchy but not saggy by the end of the day.
