Its Time For A New Watch
I have always loved watches, especially men’s watches for women or just the bigger ones in general. I don’t know why, maybe because I have a very small wrist but I guess I like the contrast. Recently I was approached by the Daniel Wellington Watch Company to collaborate with them and I am super excited to share with you some of their collection. Ever since I have started my blog, I have been contacted by a number of companies to collaborate on a story, but I have always been cautious to saying yes. I like collaborating with companies when their product and branding is a fit for my look.
I always ask myself two questions “would I wear it?” and “would my customers wear it” even if we were not collaborating. I think it’s really important to be honest when representing a brand and I honestly love the products offered by the Daniel Wellington watch company, its a great look with women’s jackets. Their signature look is a classic watch face, thin, refined and perfectly round and they are offered in a variety of different genuine leather or their “Nato” stripe straps which originate from the British Navy. I chose their Classic St Andrews Lady’s watch which has the tan leather strap. This is one of my favorite colors and I always look for shoes, belts and bags in this color to match. Tan has a more casual look and works perfectly with denim.
I decided to wear my watch over the weekend for a casual outing. It worked perfectly with my classic hounds-tooth plaid Zara blazer, my favorite jeans and my bright orange scarf for some color. As you have noticed from my blog stories before, I love wearing jewelry and watches fall in the jewelry category as well. Just as I like mixing a lot of necklaces together to make a new look, I also love pairing my watch with great bracelets and rings. So I added my Louis Vuitton tan leather bracelet that wraps around my wrist and one of my favorite gold bracelets to add some more interest.
Last but not least because of my collaboration with Daniel Wellington, I am super excited to say that you can get any item from their web site with 15% discount by entering JS15 code at check out.
