As a child of the midwest, I am a big fan of finding a deal. Paying full-price at Target was about as fancy as I got. Now that I am a grown-up living in Dallas I feel like I should stop buying off the sale rack and instead venture into grown-up stores and buy high-quality things that will last me forever.
(A quick aside– As I wrote that sentence, I realized I had pudding in my hair. So much for being a grown-up.)
Back to investment pieces. When I refer to investment pieces, I am thinking beyond the closet and into the rest of our home. Our current decor consists of what happened when we combined our Ikea furniture into one house. I like what we have and it works for us but as we add anything new, we have to step back and decide if we should find a reasonable temporary solution, or bite the bullet and get something nicer AKA more expensive.
My newest debate over spend vs. splurge relates to pillows. On one hand, decorative pillows are a great way to easily switch out trends in your home. On the other, I want to find things I’m going to love for more than a season or two.
Which pillow is your favorite? What decor items do you save on and what do you splurge on?

There’s a hard way to put photos in a post that, for some reason, causes big spaces between images. This is the third time I’ve done this post and I surrender to the WordPress Gods on this one.)
