Shopping deals inspired by Paris: c’est la vie

Even though I’m not currently traveling, I still love to be reminded of Paris! That’s why I love finding treasures that either remind me of Paris or are Paris-related.

I’m going to make this a weekly post where I scour the internet for some French-inspired deals and steals that I know you’ll love!

Today, it’s all about items that declare c’est la vie!

Of course we have to have the requisite items that state c’est la vie, like my favorite comfy shirts that have the saying emblazoned on them, but I also included delicate jewelry and feminine trainers in my current favorite color, rose gold.

Happy shopping!

The perfect travel wallet: Tory Burch Parker floral foldable mini wallet in Gabriella

I had been looking for a small wallet for awhile, one that fits a few credit cards, has a zipped compartment for coins, and has room for my bills without having to fold them. I also wanted a compact wallet to travel with because I don’t like to carry a lot when traveling. Since all of my wallets are solid colored, I also was looking for a wallet with a pretty print. I found the perfect wallet while perusing the Tory Burch website!

The Parker Floral Foldable Mini Wallet meets all my above requirements, plus it’s covered in a gorgeous floral print called Gabriella, described on the website as “covered in flowers inspired by Italy‚Äôs vine-strewn balconies”.Screen Shot 2017-09-24 at 3.09.51 PM

Even thought it’s on sale, I still debated on whether to buy it as it’s a lot of money for a wallet. I finally decided that it really was the perfect wallet and I really should get it! Unfortunately, when I tried to buy it the next day, I found that it was already sold out on Tory Burch’s website.

Well, I put my research skills to work and searched for the wallet for a similar price. Luckily, I found it on sale! Not only that, but this print, called Gabriella, is also available in the following styles, also all on sale:

Here’s a closer look at the wallet I bought:

There’s plenty of space for credit cards and receipts in both the credit card slots and this space in the center of the wallet. There’s also a zippered compartment on the back of the wallet for coins.

What finally sold me on this wallet was the pretty blue interior and the fact that I can place all my bills length-wise in the wallet – no more folding bills! I think money shouldn’t be folded and wrinkled, but maybe that’s just me.
