Save vs. Splurge 2019 Fall Shoes

This is always one of my more popular posts which is GREAT because it’s also one of my favorites to put together💁‍♀️

While I usually do love a lot of the *it* items, I usually hate the price it comes at. For as long as I can remember, seeing a gorgeous item (clothing, handbag, shoe, etc.) has been followed by scouring different stores for the perfect dupe. At like half the price preferably😅

As Fall shoe trends have been coming and I’ve been seeing what a lot of other people are getting (looking at you #nsale posts!) I’ve been saving them and starting my search for the shoes I’m *personally* more likely to purchase!

So here are FIVE styles you either need, or will see everywhere, this Fall. You can decide if it’s a Save or a Splurge worthy😉

Snakeskin Booties

All animal print is IN this year but snakeskin is new and it is EVERYWHERE. I’ve also been the kind of person to consider animal all print as a neutral so I’m definitely on board with this trend.

Madden Girl Dafni Snakeskin Bootie ($59.99)

Steve Madden Rockstar Snakeskin Bootie ($119.95)

Rain Boots

I first posted on here about how amazing Ugg Rain Boots at least a few years ago so I’m just going to keep shouting about it until everyone realizes how awesome & comfortable they are! I know Hunter is the rain boot Brand™️ but I promise you’ll be so so happy with the Uggs AND for under $100!
*sidenote: it absolutely cracks me up that rainboots have to advertise as waterproof. Like I sure hope so😬

Ugg Shelby Matte Waterproof Rain Boot ($84.95)

Hunter Original Tall Waterproof Rain Boot ($150.00)

Leopard Sneakers

Back to the animal print, but this one isn’t quite so new. Leopard has been the ultimate animal print neutral for a while now, so why not add it to your wardrobe in a casual way. I’ve been wearing trendy sneakers more and more lately! A new fun print is definitely needed in a style I’ll wear a bunch.

Keds Double Decker Slip-On Sneaker ($49.99)

Keds for Kate Spade NY Calf Hair Sneaker ($110.00)

Taupe Booties

This is basically the ultimate Fall Bootie. It’s one the few styles I usually wear through and have to replace yearly. (Most shoes I can get minimum 2-3 years out of) Taupe booties are just that one piece that’s going to go with every outfit you put together in the Fall time. Which makes it one of the few I’ll truly consider splurging on. The popularity of the Gigietta bootie proves I’m not the only one lol

Journee Collection Issla Western Bootie ($59.99)

Vince Camuto Gigietta Bootie ($149.99)

Knee-High Boots

This is another shoe style that’s become close to a Fall Staple. I do enjoy both knee-high and over-the-knee but going for a beige/camel/taupe knee high is such a classic piece. It’ll go with a lot of your Fall outfits, especially the nicer occasions. I spent a LONG time a few years ago looking for the perfect dupe and I’m so glad I do have this style in my closet now!

Levity Ursala Boot ($99.98)

Sam Edelman Hai Knee High Boot ($199.95)
