Top Ten Fall Essentials Pt. 2: Splurge vs. Steal

It's fall y'all!!  I'm so excited for fall and about the fact that  I am guest blogging for Karli over at September Farm today!  Since today is the first official day of fall I figured what better way to celebrate than with a fall fashion post?!


 I decided to put together my top 10 fall essentials in splurge vs. steal format so I could share options in different price points!  I'm working on cleaning out my closets and only adding specific items for fall that I love!  Hope you enjoy my list!

You can visit Karli's blog here to see the first 5 of my fall essentials!  I  See my second 5 items below and don't miss visiting Karli's blog for a fun fall essential giveaway!

6. Skinny Jeans

AG Contour 360 Skinny Jeans Nordstrom

Splurge: AG Contour 360 Skinny Jeans found here.
Target Mossimo Skinny Jeans

Steal: Target Mossimo Skinny Jeans found here.

Dark skinny jeans are my fave this time of year!  They are perfect to tuck into riding boots or to wear with booties.

7. Booties

TOMS Desert Wedge Booties Nordstrom

Splurge: TOMS Desert Wedge Booties found here.
Target Terri Lace Up Booties

Steal: Target Terri Lace Up Booties found here.

Y'all!  Do yourself a favor and go get these Target booties.  I bought them in black & tan and they are so cute and so comfy!!  They will be featured in several outfit posts coming up.

8. Aviators

Ray Ban Large Original Aviators Nordstrom

Splurge: Ray Ban Large Original Aviators found here.
BP Aviators Nordstrom

Steal: BP Aviators found here.

I love a good pair of aviators! They are so easy to throw on & make an outfit super cute.

9. Anorak Jacket

Michael Kors Anorak Jacket Nordstrom

Splurge: Michael Kors Anorak Jacket found here.
Target Mossimo Anorak Jacket

Steal: Target Mossimo Anorak Jacket found here.

I love Anorak jackets!  I'm still debating which one/color to add to my collection but I definitely want one for the fall!

10. Tote

Street Level Reversible Tote Nordstrom

Splurge: Street Level Reversible Tote found here.
Target Reversible Tote

Steal: Target Reversible Tote found here.


I love a good tote!  I carry a lot back and forth to work & meetings so a good versatile tote is a necessity.  Both of these totes are great quality but I managed to snag a great Target Cartwheel coupon and ended up buying the Target one!  I have the reversible red & black and love it!

  1. Great picks! I saw that bag at Target over the weekend and it looks EXACTLY like the Free People tote that is way more expensive. It is so cute. Those jeans are cute too. Thanks for sharing and I hope that you have a great day! :-)

  16. Yes to all of these, especially the aviators! I just can't ever see myself paying $100+ for sunglasses - I usually break or lose them! And for the tote bags, Old Navy makes an even cheaper version!! Great round up!
