If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you probably have noticed I love budget-friendly items. While I love my higher-end items, they’re typically a splurge for me. For instance, my Chanel wallet was actually a Christmas gift from my amazing mother-in-law and my Tory Burch bag was something I saved up for weeks to buy (and I bought it used!). But I use my Chanel wallet every single day and that Tory Burch bag gets plenty of wear also. The thing I focus on when determining what I want to spend money on is what I will get the most use out of.
This jacket from Anthropologie was definitely a splurge for me. At $128, I had to ensure it was something I’d wear regularly. I have a different denim jacket that I wear several times a week, so I knew this would be in the rotation regularly. Classic pieces like this are exactly the type of thing I am willing to spend money on.
You’ll notice I paired this jacket with some cheaper pieces like these awesome Old Navy cropped jeans and a Madewell tee that’s only $17. Knowing where to splurge and where to save keeps the look balanced. For trends, I try to focus on good sales and less expensive pieces, while the classic items are definitely where I’ll spend more money.
