May's Money Well Spent

In May's Money Well Spent I'm telling you what I think are great staple items for starting your summer. Each month I'll give you a few things that will help build your wardrobe over time and those that I think are worth splurging on. (Quality over quantity is huge for me!)

For May, I think a wristlet, pair of Jack Rogers, and a quality pair of Ray-Bans is ideal for starting your summer. 

1. Wristlet- a wristlet is perfect for throwing a few dollars, your keys, and a chapstick and running out the door. Perfect for day when you don't want to lug around a purse! I love using my wristlet when I go out to eat, go get ice cream, or a baseball game. I use it a lot for running quick errands too. My favorite wristlet is from Kate Spade. Kate Spade has tons of cute prints and bold colors that are perfect for summer. It has a zipper in front where I keep my coins. The main compartment is pretty spacious and can fit a decent amount for the bag's size. The leather it's made of doesn't get worn or wrinkly like some other kinds of bags, making it last and still look new (and worth the splurge!) ($78)

2. Jack Rogers- I adore my Jacks because they're well made and super comfy once you break them in. They look good with dressed up or casual outfits so they're very versatile. I suggest getting a neutral color for your first pair; white, silver, gold, or my favorite, platinum. ($119)

3. Ray-Ban Sunglasses- I have two pairs of the aviators, one brown and one black, and I think they are the most flattering style on everyone. You can really tell the difference between the quality of cheap sunglasses vs. Ray-Bans. They sit on your face better and aren't bulky. I love mine and I always keep them in the case when not in use- very important for keeping them unscratched and bent!! ($150, can be found cheaper if you shop around)
