Save Vs. Splurge: 'Summer's Almost Here' Edition

By Megan Collins | Last Updated: Oct 17 2016

Happy Monday!

I was so glad to hear that you guys loved the recent Spring Essentials – Save vs. Splurge post…seriously, your feedback to me on what gets your engines revving here on Style Girlfriend is so SO helpful to me. I want to give you guys what you want, so please always let me know what you think of what I put up here. Also, did I use that car analogy correctly? My last ride was a ’92 Elantra when I was 17, so my car talk is a little rusty… (much like my Elantra, come to think of it)

A-a-a-a-nyways! That’s all to say, I thought I’d start your work week off with another chance to get your shop on. Below are a few more items to add to your wardrobe this season. For each, I’ve listed one on the cheap, and one that you’ll need to shell out a few more bucks (or in a few cases, a considerable amount of bucks more…but why quibble over semantics?!).

From bright boat shoes – which, to answer a question I received on Twitter:  yes! I’m totally in favor of…boat shoes are the best! – to pocket squares and on to wingtips, you’ve got some great options if you’re in the mood for a little online shopping on this lovely Monday morning…

Banana Republic checkered pocket square, $25
Alexander McQueen skull patterned pocket square $125

Stafford orange knit tie, $20
Paul Smith grey knit tie, $150

Bass Wingtip, $79
Cole Haan LunarGrand Wingtip, $248
…..
Be honest, how much do you guys want that skulls pocket square? So much, right? I want to go out and buy a blazer just to stuff that pocket square into..

Tell me:

Have you got any of these items in your closet already? Any tips on a good save OR splurge?
