my mind on my money.

okwallet.jpgI desperately need a new wallet, I have used mine beyond repair, which makes me feel guilty because it once was a beautiful Kate Spade white leather. But it has endured years of over-stuffing and squishing into my messy handbag interior. You know those old white T-shirts you cut up to use as dust rags? Yeah, that the color it resembles. And with all the wrinkles in the leather and seams, it looks like my wallet gained too much weight and tried to force itself into a pair of spandex leggings. Not pretty at all…So here is my wallet wish. I want something fun, something from a lesser known designer, and something that will withstand my abuse (although I am going to try to be better about this.) My favorite is the Norway Spruce Wallet from Orla Kiely. The fabric is canvas with a leather frame and features a graphic print in blues and greens. I also like that it is zippered instead of a snap closure, I think that will wear a little better and keep me more organized. It seems like it has plenty of room and is even long enough to hold a checkbook in one of the compartments. Plus, I love the name since my heritage is Norwegian and I studied Scandinavian languages and culture in college! It will give me more incentive to take better care of it, at least I hope so! I’m going to go see if they have it at the Anthropologie near me since I have a few things to return there, if not I’ll just order it online!

    Yeah, wallets are one of those things that I kind of forget about and rarely put a lot of thought into….until they’re beat up and resembling someone stuffed into spandex (nice comparison, btw :). I love your pick, it’s very cute.
