Watch Out

It’s no secret that I love a good watch. I haven’t always been a fan of them, but as I have gotten older and my style has changed, I have found that watches are a really chic accessory. There are so many great options out there. I have the Riley Multifunction Stainless Steel Watch from Fossil (also featured above). If you’re a regular reader, then you’ve seen me wearing it quite often. I love that it’s gold and silver and matches all of my jewelry.

I’ve rounded up some of my favorite watches for you above. I love a brown leather watch for a more casual look. I’m also head over heels in love with the pink Kate Spade watch. The wrap wrist is a great option if you want a fun but classy twist. Honestly though, I would buy any of these watches.

If you’re shopping for a watch, my tip is to look for something timeless and something that will go with a majority of your wardrobe. A classic leather, gold, or a two-tone watch are good choices if you’re in the market for your first watch. It’s important to pick something you can wear often, especially if you’re making an investment. Then, once you’re sure you enjoy wearing watches, go for a color or something fun!

I would love one of these for Christmas (i.e., that pink Kate Spade), but any of these would make a great gift for that special someone too!

    Ohh I don't normally wear a watch. Mostly because my jewelry vibe is so different everyday. That one is cute though, I love the stripe of pink!

    The pink and navy DW is so cute! But you can't go wrong with Michael Kors or Kate Spade!

    I love Kate Spade watches. I bought a silver Gramercy when I was in LA and it's just so pretty! I'm also a fan of watches, but I tend to wear the same one every day (my trusty Burberry that I've had for 5 years). I recently bought a fossil, and I really like it! These are great picks! 🙂
