Opinions needed- What Should I Treat Myself To?

Today I am reaching out to everyone for their opinion on what I should treat myself to for my birthday. This birthday was kinda big for me and overall not the best day in general. I've been working really hard at work lately and have even picked up some second little jobs to bring in a little extra money which has left me wanting to treat myself to a little extra something. Obviously I still have my monthly expenses and am looking forward to putting a bit in savings but also looking forward to buying myself something nice that I know I worked for. 

I essentially have 2 options- one nice more expensive item or two less expensive items...

Option 1-
David Yurman X Crossover Ring
I've had my eye on this ring since college and for some reason have never bit the bullet and just bought it. I love the simplicity of it and that it could be worn every day. 

Option 2-

Sam Edelman Penny Boot

I am definitely due for a new pair of boots this fall and I love the look of these. 

J. Crew Factory Quilted Puffer Vest- Black

This is another piece I've had my eye on since last season and know I would wear it throughout Fall and into Winter. I've seen different bloggers style it and know I would be able to wear it with so many different things, bonus that it's on sale right now! 

So now the decision- the David Yurman ring or the two items for Fall/Winter? 

What do you treat yourself to?

Yours truly, 
Emily Ann

I don't think you could go wrong with any of the items, but I'd definitely go with the boots! Love that style and I'm sure you'd get a lot of use out of them :)

So many choices. I would get the ring it is classic and something you will always have

I think the ring is the perfect birthday gift - like someone said - you'll have it forever and the boots and vest will sort of fade away as time goes on!

I love those boots and vest too for sure, but I do always love a piece that you will have forever like that ring that you can look back on and say "I got this for my 25th birthday and bought it with my hard-earned money." You know, something with a story behind it :)

I have had that same ring for probably 10 years and I still wear it every single day!

I'd say get the ring - it's a classic piece that you will be able to wear for years - and like Annie said, a fun reminder of your 25th birthday.

I would give yourself a few months and then pick up that puffer vest. I think J.Crew Factory has them on sale for 75 dollars right now - and I do love mine!

Go for the ring! It is completely classic and you will cherish it for a long time!

1000% the ring! Jewelry, especially classic pieces like DY, never becomes out dated. I have the double cross over and literally wear it everyday--it goes with absolutely everything, unlike boots & vests that you can only wear fall/winter. I did the same thing as you--I had been working really hard and wanted to treat myself. Every time I put that ring on I always think of why I have it. It's very meaningful!

Lastly, I had those boots and find them near to impossible to pull on and pull off. I ended up selling them on ebay and NEVER thought that would happen.

I'm seriously loving that fall combo, but I would go with the Yurman! You will absolutely love it and wear it with everything.. it's a classic! Can't wait to see what you decide :)
