When it comes to happy, summery bags, I immediately think of Kate Spade. Growing up in the South in a city where Lilly Pulitzer abounds, the Kate Spade brights would always come out when the weather warmed up. Without fail, something like this Kate Spade Jane Street Neda Calfskin Wallet would be paired with a bright little cardi and a Pulitzer dress.
It’s not my style at all. You see, I’d pair the wallet with something much different than this particular Southern preppy style, like with something quirky and bohemian for a nice contrast. However, that just shows how versatile this little wallet it.
Not only can it be used as a clutch, but the color is clean and the leather is smooth. It can be tossed in a bag by day and carried alone by night to accompany a great sequin number. Just take it for a spin, whether your nails are painted black with rhinestones or scrubbed and manicured. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $185.
