Here at StyleList, we are always looking to justify a splurge which is why we like to break things down by the numbers.
Here is our equation:
1) A pair of sandals costs $100.00
2) There are roughly 90 days of summer (12 weeks)
3) If we wear our 'gotta have them' sandals 3 times a week for the entire summer, they would cost $2.77 per wear.
