In other news, I'm back today for the weekly "Oh hey, Friday!" link up (link up information can be found at the end of this post). And today, I have some earth shattering things to share. Ok. Not really. But I do have a few - very shallow and unnecessary - things I need your input on. They are all things that I am contemplating purchasing in the near future, but haven't made my mind up on yet. I like to call it "This v. That." Your job is to help me decided on either this or that. And, go.
1. Puffer Vests
I think I want one. I've even narrowed it down to a color (red). But, do I go with the $40 Old Navy option (left), or the $80 Gap one (right)?
2. Halloween Treat Bags
Caleb will only be 17 months at Halloween this year. While he may wear a costume, I doubt we will be going door-to-door to trick-or-treat. But that hasn't stopped me from perusing adorable treat bag options. And, of course, Pottery Barn is in the running. Fellow mamas - would this precious bag be a worthwhile investment? Or would it be better to wait and purchase this when he is older and will actually be trick-or-treating?
3. Black Booties
I recently purchased these adorable herringbone booties. And love them. So much so, that I'd like a pair in black. However, I recently noticed that Target carries a very similar option. So, do I go with the tried and true TOMS wedges (top)? Or take a chance on the fraction-of-the-price Target knock offs (bottom)?
4. Patterned Scarves
All I've been hearing about is the infamous plaid Zara scarf that was so elusive last year, and that has apparently made a comeback this year. Of course, I was never quick enough to grab one. But that doesn't mean I can't still jump on the patterned scarf train. But, in what scheme? The classic black, red and green plaid (left)? Or a buffalo check (left)?
After returning the ridiculously-priced Fryes that I'd coveted for so long, I am back on the hunt for a pair of boots. I've found a pair that I like, but I've also had many suggestions toward a completely different pair (which both happen to be made by the same designer!) So, should I go with the light caramel pair - which I could totally see paired with black leggings or dark jeans (left)? Or the cognac pair - which look a bit dressier to me (right)?
So, let me have it ladies. I need some opinions!
