Weekend Edit: Splurge vs. Save Finds, Valentine's Day Picks and More

Splurge versus Save, plus the best Valentine's gifts!
I have so many great finds to share with you all today! From some great looks for less to the perfect Valentine's Day gifts (no, really!), this is one round-up you won't want to miss...



1. I own these slide sandals in both white and cognac. Just $7.98 a pair! These run true to size, I'm a 9.5 and got the 9. If you have wide feet and are between sizes I'd go up.

For genuine leather, splurge on these Steve Madden "Greece" slide sandals instead.

2. I'm not sure how often I'll wear these wedge sandals, but for $19 I couldn't resist buying them! They look just like the Treasure & Bond ones that cost $80.

3. If you want the ultimate gift for the man in your life, try Butcher Box. This is a meat subscription service my husband ordered for us a couple months back and we've been using it ever since. He did the math and it's actually an amazing deal! High-quality meat (grass fed, humanely raised) delivered to your doorstop.

4. Vellabox is an artisan candle box that starts at just $10 for natural, hand-made candles. I think this would make such a great Valentine's Day gift for just about anyone on your list! The brand sent me one trial box - follow me on Instagram where I'll be giving away the candles to one lucky reader!

5. I finally ordered this UO shirt that everyone loves since it's just $29 on sale! I own this one from fashionjunkee.com and I wear it A LOT.

6. I love my black chelsea rain boots from J.Crew (purchased two years ago on Black Friday). So I'm thinking about trying this budget pair in gray to mix things up!

7. The clearance section at Abercrombie is a goldmine right now. How sweet is this dress, just $12.80!

8. If I wasn't nursing I'd grab this bralette! Just $18 in so many pretty colors. Many bloggers prefer it to the Free People one.

9. If you've enjoyed the Love Beauty & Planet line of personal care items, you'll want to check out their new home collection - Love Home & Planet, at Target stores. Better for you ingredients with sustainability in mind.

P.S. Target has a new line of kids shoes called See Kai Run Basics (from See Kai Run). They sent me a pair for my 5 year old and he loves them, said they're comfy and good for running fast!

P.P.S. I couldn't squeeeeze this into my collage today (pardon my Photoshop skills - or lack thereof LOL) but how cute is this $11.88 gingham top!? Answer: Very.
