I saw a link on twitter this morning where Mom Trends featured “some of the web’s most stylish mamas” about how they keep their iPhones and iPads “safe and looking chic.” Yes, their case choices were nice. But I admit thinking my iPhone case beat theirs by a long shot. I may not be a “stylish mama,” but I have a special fondness for things that both look good and are practical.
Enter the Speck Candyshell Card Case. I LOVE this case. Why do I think its better? Because I love the unique white & peacock blue color combo, I love that it is very kid tough, and best of all I love that it does double duty as a wallet. That’s right! There is a built in slot on the back that holds up to 3 cards. In my case I always carry my driver’s license, one credit card and one bank card, plus a bill or two. The case isn’t made to hold cash, but the trick is to wrap your bill around one of the cards before sliding it in. Then, voila – it fits!
Naturally, I have other cards I like to keep handy (library card, gift cards, etc), but those I keep in the diaper bag (more on that later). But seriously, it is great knowing that whenever I grab my phone, I have with me all the absolute necessities. I would so often forget my card case, especially when I was just running out for something quick, without the kids. This solves that problem, leaving me a bit of brain space to worry about other things – as in, did I remember the keys?
How about you? Do you have an iPhone case you love?
