Splurge vs. Save: Black & White


Save: dress | sandals | watch | earrings | crossbody bag | lipstick {candy yum-yum} | sunglasses

Sharing some summertime black and white outfit inspiration with you today! Splurge vs. Save is one of my favorite posts and I realized I haven't shared one with you in awhile so I thought it would be fun to compare looks and obviously price points with this summer look.

Black and white are classic colors that look good no matter what season. In the summer, I love pairing a white sundress with black accessories and a bold lip -- it's classic, striking and more on the dressier side, which would be perfect for a date night!

Of all the splurge and save items, my favorite comparison is between THESE splurge sandals and THESE save sandals. I have the save sandals in nude {last seen HERE} and I've been wearing them so much this summer. At a fraction of the price, these save sandals are a must for your closet. Also, they are available in a variety of colors {brown and hot pink are next on my wish list} and are currently on sale!! Hurry and scoop them up before they are gone!

A few other things to note:
1) The entire "save" outfit is about $330.

2) The entire "splurge" outfit is almost $5,000!!

3) There are SO many designer dupes for a fraction of the price, including THIS splurge watch and THIS save watch! Often times, it's great to stick with the save option!

What is your favorite splurge vs. save item? Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!

  17. I can't believe how similar the outfits look and the huge price difference! I hate spending too much money on sandals during the summer because I feel like I wear them so much that they get worn out way to easily. It's not worth it to spend that much money on them!

  18. I LOVE this post! And everything is a so similar to the splurge those sandals!

  20. Love this post! I'm always looking for ways to save, although the designer items are definitely eye candy!

  21. You nailed this post, Rachel! I cannot believe how similar these items are to each other! As a budget girl myself I'm always looking for finds that don't hurt my wallet! And I tell you: The budget version of the black handbag is a must! I love it!!!!!!
    Thanks so much for sharing, love!

    I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!
    xoxo, Vanessa

  22. Love when you do these. It's crazy how much both splurge and save look alike. Just goes to show you it doesn't take a lot of money to look like a million bucks. Love your picks!

  23. To be honest the save option look as good as the splurge! But who wouldn't want an authentic Chloe bag?
