Save or Splurge: boat shoes

10 Jun

I love fashion but at my core, I’m really a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl. More often than not, my weekend style consists of skinny jeans and a tee. But I love to style up my basic look with fun accessories and shoes! Chasing a 22 month old means my shoes need to be practical but also cute!

Boat shoes have become super popular (at least here in So Cal) and I’ve had my eye on a pair by Sperry in a pretty rose gold hue. I’ve been hesitant to pull the trigger because although they’re cute, to me they epitomize “mom shoes” (which would only enhance the cheesiness of my “mom backpack” full of animal crackers, juice boxes, first aid kit, etc.But this is the reality of having a toddler =). But the shoes are also $90. With our wedding quickly approaching, I have to be more money conscientious than ever.

Enter this alternative…

This is a nice, affordable alternative to the Sperry Women’s Authentic Original Metallic Boat Shoe


The budget-friendly Target version was a great find! They are comfortable and go with just about everything. Plus, you can’t beat the price! I’m pleased with the decision here to SAVE!
