Save or Splurge – September

Save or Splurge – September

If you love shopping like I do, I’m sure you should know by now that it’s important to look around before purchasing that IT item you’ve been dying to invest in. For starters sometimes you can find that same IT item somewhere else for a more affordable price. So I ask you would you rather save or splurge? My advice to you is don’t buy anything on impulse, try to look around and see what your best options are. I guarantee, you will save yourself a lot of money this way. Head over to Urban Planet and Suzy Shier to check out all their great deals on the latest trends.

Plaid Button-Up 

This fall wardrobe staple is extremely versatile, ideal to wear to the office or on date nights. You can pair this button-up with pretty much anything, starting from shorts to mini and midi skirts to skinny and boyfriend jeans. Not to mention you can style it so many ways: buttoning it up, keeping it casual over a tank top, tucked into your pants, tied at the waist and so on. I would pair this top with black velvet pants and black or even white pumps, perfect for date night at your favorite restaurant in town.

Ribbed Cardigan

Believe it or not cardigans are no longer associated with your grandmother’s closet. This cozy layer has become a fall essential in any girl’s closet. Cardigans can make a relatively casual outfit look more work-appropriate. This longline cardigan can be incorporated into our daily outfits, whether it’s over a dress or a statement top. You can also style it in many ways: open, buttoned up, or belted at the waist. I would pair this cardigan with an all white outfit; white jeans, a white plain tee and white boots – making the cardigan the statement piece.

Bermuda Shorts

These bottoms are very sassy, because of their unique look. Some styles can be worn tights and others are loose, like mom shorts. Bermuda shorts are a street wear trend that make a statement anywhere you go. If you’re going for a casual look, pair these shorts with a graphic tee tucked in and white trainers. If you’re going more for an edgy look, pair these shorts with a white simple top, a black leather jacket, and strap heels or ankle booties.

Ruched Boots 

When the fall comes rolling around there is no way you can say no to boots. Boots are a versatile trend that can be styled with just about everything, from denim jeans to track pants and dresses to mini skirts. Even on days when you’re in the most casual look, boots can be the essential statement piece to be added. Pair these boots with a mini floral bohemian dress, perfect for a day spent outdoors apple picking and sipping on some apple cider.

Tie Dye Legging 

Thank the 60’s for this groovy trend. If you haven’t already noticed influencers have been incorporating tie dye into their street style outfits, layering colorful tops under suits or doubling up on the pattern with a tie dye sweatshirt and legging. Pair these leggings with the matching sweatshirt or if you’re looking to ease into the trend, pair it with a plain white tee and white trainers. Perfect for your next gym workout or on a regular busy day full of errands.

Ribbed Dress

This black ribbed dress works for every occasion. Perfect for transitioning from the office to after work drinks with co-workers. You can easily dress this wardrobe piece up or down. For a casual look I’d pair this dress with trainers or even combat boots in the fall. To dress it up, pair this dress with snakeskin ankle boots and and a matching clutch bag. Throw on a leather jacket on days when it gets a bit chilly.

Pair this skirt with a turtleneck and pumps, or with a knit cardigan styled with a white blouse tucked in the suede skirt.

Flare Pants

Change it up a bit and instead of your regular cigarette trousers, opt for a pair of flare pants. Pair these pants with a white button-down and strappy heels. This look is for all the moms out there who have full day of work, followed by a PTA meeting in the evening. We all know how busy life can get as a mom, so it’s essential to have outfits that can be worn in multiple occasions. If you want to go the extra mile in these pants, rock the matching blazer too!

Pleated Skirt 

Pleated skirts are the perfect item for a night out. You can style it with an oversized sweater and loafers or with a bodysuit, a cropped jacket and heels. Ideal for a night out with friends at a broadway show or at your favorite nightclub for some dance moves. What I love most about this skirt is that no matter how you style it, it will always remain an essential statement piece.
