Five Looks For Less

Hi friends!  Yay for Thursday, it’s just a hop, skip and a jump to the weekend now!  We could use a do-over for sure!  Yesterday, James got his braces off and I so remember that feeling of thinking your teeth look SO big when you first get them off.  I had braces when if was in high school, and he’s only 10!

He looks so good and is getting so grown up now!  I swear he’s gonna pass me up in height soon!

I know y’all appreciate seeing affordable finds and the Nordstrom vs. Amazon post I did awhile ago was a big hit!  I’ve been sharing more of these Looks for Less collages on Stories, and I’m rounding them up for you here.  Let me know if you’d like to see more of this in the future!

First up is a casual sweater, jeans and booties look, since most of us are still weathering cold temps.  I have both of these sweaters and they’re both great!  The Splurge one is from Nordstrom by Free People and there are more colors here, plus it’s on sale for $49.

I actually just got an email yesterday from a reader asking for a quilted crossbody bag that’s similar to my Tory Burch.  I have the Save bag in tan and really like it!  See it styled here.

You know I’m crazy for my Save jeans!  They have a comfortable high waist and I wear them all the time!  I just got them in the ‘light stone wash’ too!

All about athleisure!  The Splurge sweatshirt is by Sweaty Betty and I have two sweatshirts by that brand and have been so happy with the fit, style and quality.  The Save sweatshirt is really good too.  It’s super soft and a longer tunic length.

Everyone loves the Splurge leggings, but they’re actually pretty reasonably priced.  They’ve been a go-to of mine for years and one pair lasts forever!  Honestly, I tend to reach for the Save leggings more often now.  I love the fabric and how they feel on my body, plus the high waist is so comfortable!  They’re also incredibly flattering.

SPLURGE | Glasses • Swimsuit • Cover Up • Beach Bag • Sandals

I have and love the Save swimsuit– bought it in several colors even!  I’d like to try the Splurge version to see how it compares.  I have the Splurge cover up in blue/white stripe and it’s nice, but actually pretty long on me, so I tie the bottom.  The Save cover up is actually a maxi-dress and I just realized it would be perfect over a swimsuit.  It has a slit on the side, which makes it comfortable for walking in.

How cute are those bags?! I actually like the look of the Save version better!  I haven’t tried the sandals, but what a dead ringer!

I’m crazy for this weekend outfit! The lightning both sweater is darling in both versions, although the save version appears to be more of a burnout style. Boyfriend jeans are great for when you want a break from skinnys and the star sneakers complete the look!

I also included a home decor collage for ya!  I just bought that Save wooden table for my office and it is BEAUTIFUL!!  The color in person is as it appears online and it’s very sturdy.  I love how it warms up my office!

I have the Splurge fiddle leaf fig inside the Splurge basket and LOVE how they look.  That pricier version of the fiddle leaf is the best faux version I’ve seen in person, but the Save fig tree has great reviews and you can see photos of what it looks like in person there.

The Save Cherry Blossom Stems are gorgeous in person! I bought three bunches and put them inside this black vase.  I love the contrast!

As for the round mirror, I’ve seen the Save version in person and it’s really pretty! It looks more expensive than it is!

Let me know if you liked this post and want to see more in the future! Also, if you haven’t entered this month’s LOVES GIVEAWAY, there’s still time.  Sign up here! The winner will be announced at the end of the month!

Have a fantastic day friends!
