Save vs. Splurge-Fall Shoes

We’re getting fully into fall which means it’s time to put away the sandals and pull out the boots! (I say that like I don’t wear booties year-round lol) BUT whether or not you can save or splurge this year, I’ve got you covered with options. As you’re figuring out which fall shoes you’ll need this year, I’ve got options for you! Maybe you can save on that trendy mule but splurge on that staple boot. We can totally make responsible decisions about these kinds of things, right guys….

 

Open-Toe Booties

Save: Ispark Bootie: $50, available in Grey & Taupe

Splurge: Kristin Cavallari ‘Laurel’ Peep Toe Bootie: $150, available in Taupe, Black, Brown, & Grey

Leopard Mules

Save: Nanette Lepore Ester Mule: $60

Splurge: Michael Kors ‘Natasha’ Mule: $130

Bow Slip-On Sneaker

Save: Mia Zahara Slip-On Sneaker: $70, available in Pink, Grey, & Black

Splurge: Paul Green Micky Bow Slip-On Sneaker: $150, available on Beige & Blue

Rain Boots

Save: Ugg ‘Shaye’ Rain Boot: $80, available in Black, Blue, Burgundy, Green, & Red

*I adore my Ugg Rain Boots! I got a pair for Christmas last year & you can read all about them in this previous post!

Splurge: Hunter ‘Original Refined’ High Gloss Rain Boot: $165, available in Black, Blue, Green, & Grey

Over-The-Knee Boots with Block Heel

Save: Unisa ‘Saromi’ Over The Knee Boot: $80, available in Beige & Black

Splurge: Stuart Weitzman ‘Highland’ Over The Knee Boot: $480, available in Beige & Black

 

If you’re like me and tend to be bootie crazy, make sure to check out this blog post about the two pairs that are going to be some of my go-to’s for the rest of the year!

Also I’ve still been getting tons of questions on the burgundy booties that have been on my Insta lately! You can find those details on the SHOP MY INSTA page on the blog(up top!), or in this post.

    I absolutely love summer and gutted it is finally leaving us for another year, even if we didn’t get much of a summer haha

    I love your choice of boots there. I’ve seen some glitter heeled boots recently and I feel I need them to brighten up the dark days that are ahead of us!

  13. I love that a lot of the ‘saves’ look even better than the ‘splurges’! Except for maybe the mules. The MK mules are adorable!

    These are so cute! Do you know if there is any quality difference between the two? Will the more expensive pair last the whole season and the cheaper one half?
