Spring Trends For Less: Spurge Vs Save

Happy Wednesday and hope you are all having a great week so far. Last week I was busy prepping for my soon to be sister-in-law’s bridal shower and work has been chaotic so it sometimes impacts my blogging time.  Anywho I’m so excited about today’s topic as I’m featuring some of the hottest spring trends.  I did comparison shopping to find these spring trends for less and matched them with their more pricey counterparts.  Although I like all of these pieces I have to say I think I prefer some of the “save” options (right side) a bit more, how about you? Clearly I’m really attracted to black and white, I just noticed after putting this together how many white/black items I choose.


Trouve  /  ChicWish

I’m so loving all of the white lace tops with black detailing whether it’s piping, bows or other pretty touches. I’m excited as I just ordered this one and can’t wait to wear it.


Sam Edelman / H & M

This season espadrille’s are everywhere and I found a couple that are perfect for work.  I like the fact that they are practical, comfy but still fresh and cute.


Kut from the Kloth / H & M

White denim is a nice change from the dark denim you see all winter long. A cropped pair works well for spring so you can show off your pretty pedicure and new sandals.  Also for the same look you can go with these super cute and affordable white leggings.


ASTR / Forever 21

It’s no secret that OTS tops are one of my faves this season and a floral pattern is synonymous with spring.


Free People / H & M

Embroidery on clothing is quite a statement for this season and something that was on all the major runway shows for spring.  How beautiful and ethereal is this H & M dress, it’s perfect for spring/summer events.


Kenneth Cole / SheIn

In my opinion casual cool style is the bomb and a pair of high-top sneakers are a must-have for sporty chic style.  I love that last week one of my co-workers was wearing a pair of these and she dressed them up so they were totally appropriate for a business casual look. Rather then looking ho-hum at work and trying to blend in she was so on point (I might add she is a mom in her 40’s which made it even cooler!).


Rebecca Minkoff / H & M

A light and airy chiffon blouse is a spring quintessential. These two options both have that classical boho vibe that I’m such a fan of.  Speaking of boho style I just scored this and this dress at great price points and looking forward to wearing them once the weather warms up.

Thanks for stopping by and reading!

    Beautiful finds. I really love your selections and in a lot of the examples you provided, I think the “save” options actually looked more visually appealing.

    I love those flat espadrille’s!! Especially the leather pair. I need to get on the embroidered band wagon, there are so many cute pieces I’ve been seeing. H&M always pleases me with their prices and pieces when I go in! I need to visit them soon!
