If you look through every single one of my outfit posts, you may notice one thing: I've never worn a watch. I hardly wear jewelry anymore! I'm just no bueno at accessorizing except with scarves. Even then it's still a bit hot in L.A. to be playing with extra fabric around my neck.. Maybe in a couple months..
Daniel Wellington contacted me to review one of their watches and I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to try new things. (Remember? That is one of my goals!) I chose the Classic Winchester Lady watch in pink and navy. I wore it a few times to get the hang of wearing something practical on my wrist besides bracelets. And I noticed I kept fidgeting with it. New things make me nervous, okay!! Once I was ready to photograph it with my outfit (Outfit post coming soon!), I decided to go the arm party route and styled the watch by regarding it as another accessory to stack with the only three bracelets I have. I loved the end result!
If you checked out their site, you'll notice their watches have a clear preppy feel to them. I took this as another challenge! I never defined my style as preppy and thought it would be fun to try and incorporate a bit of it into my style. Though the playful band screams preppy with its pink and navy, the face is cream and gold with a very sleek and minimalist look - almost masculine. I just love how the two elements contrast each other. Right now, the band is still a bit rigid. I think it'll get softer the more I wear it. I love the idea of breaking it in! The face is also easily interchangeable. They sell separate bands so you can change it out depending on your outfit and/or mood.
Overall, I liked this watch. Even Chase gave his approval! If you're feeling preppy, Daniel Wellington is giving you a 15% discount! Just enter CLOTHEDMUCH at check out until November 5. Another fave of mine is this tan leather watch. So classy.
