My New Wallet from Nordstrom Rack

My last wallet was falling apart. The coin purse had a tear and I was losing quarters in my bags all the time. The wallet was also just dirty... and dusty. How does that happen? I don't know. So, I knew I wanted a nice, mature wallet and after being into cognac bags, I decided to get a leather cognac wallet. 

It has a plain and simple design. I'm super happy with it!

The thick part of it has my cards and cash. The zipper part of it holds my coins. 

Here, you can see how I organize my cards. I usually have my driver's license where you see the  visible panel, but no one needs to see how I looked on a bad hair day when I was 17. I have my credit cards visible for easy access as well as insurance cards and some frequent shopper cards. 

I stick everything else I own into these three vertical parts. This wallet doesn't have as much space for organizing as my previous one did, but I think I carry around an abnormal amount of  rewards cards, stamp cards, and the such. 

I'm really enjoying the wallet a lot. It's more classic, grown up and I think I'm going to end up using it for a long time.

  1. Great wallet. I love when you can find a fab wallet that holds everything and isn't bulging over.

  2. I like it! I have the same problem not having enough slots. Between bank cards and rewards cards and gift card and insurance cards... Not going to lie, I actually just got a second wallet and carry both.

  3. Looks like a great wallet! I love all the compartments. It just makes life easier to know where your credit/stamp/debit cards are. :)

  14. thanks for stopping by my blog earlier this week! i really like your restaurant reviews and all the pics of food (gosh, that's pretty much all i think about haha).

    this wallet is really nice! the colour is perfect and i love the simple, classic design. card organization is KEY, and it's great you found a wallet with so many card slots! (i think mine only has like 4...)

    1. I won't even look at ones with only a few card slots. This wallet enables my packrat-ness.

  17. oooh! this is a lovely "mature" wallet. I adore it! My wallet gets super bulky with reward/gift cards so I stick them in this little coin pouch. Yeah, it's something extra to carry but I figured I wouldn't need all the shopping temptation in my backpack anyways (;

  26. This is a grea wallet, I like a continental style as well that opens up. The zip around is not user friendly in my opinion. Very good choice, enjoy.

  27. It's a really nice wallet! I like how organized and clean it looks when it's open, and how simple it is when it's shut.
