Watching the Days Go By

I am having a little love affair with watches.  Sometimes dressing for work can be very boring, and I find that accessories are the one thing that can make an outfit more me.  There are so many on my current wishlist that I am not even sure what I want anymore, but here are some of my favorites:

This watch may actually be at the top of my list, but I am thinking that I may want it in black.  I love the whimsical picture on the face.  The plastic strap is also very lightweight, which is a quality I like.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Miss Marc Plastic Bracelet Watch $150 (also comes in black)

I love all of the tortoise watches that the stores are showing for the spring.  I am not sure that this color would be a versatile with my wardrobe, which is my one hesitation in purchasing it. 

Michael Kors MK5298 $180

I adore this take on the everyday silver watch.  This would go with absolutely everything, and be a bit more exciting than a plain bracelet watch.

Michael Kors Chronograph Chain Bracelet Watch  $195

First of all, this watch purple.  Second of all, it has a square face.  And the strap wraps around the wrist  twice. What is there not to love about this? 

Stainless Steel Rectangular Watch with Double Wrap Strap - Purple Snakeskin  $249

Another trend I really dig for spring is rose gold.  Again, another versatile watch that can easily be worn to work (and add something a little trendy while still keeping a classic vibe). 

Michael Kors Rose Goldtone Bracelet Chronograph Watch  $250

Hello, watch!  This is a perfect pop of color.  I would wear it exactly the way I wear red shoes....to make something boring a little more lively. 


MICHAEL Michael Kors Watch, Red Acetate Bracelet  $195

And finally, I must mention my love of all things Swatch.  I had them as a child in the 80's, and am rocking them again today.  These are really more weekend wear for me, but I just adore these designs.  My vet has the watch below. (It is named "Germaphobe."  Perfect, right?)

Swatch Medium Watches GW149 - WW Germaholic  $65

I already own this watch, but feel it is worth mentioning to anyone else out there who may be looking for something bright and colorful and spring-y.  It is amazing that it also seems to match everything.  Or maybe I am just very brave.

Swatch Women's Color The Sky Watch   $55

The first two and the rose gold MKs are my favorites!

Hi, I'm Erin. I am living back on the east coast after 15 years out west. Currently readjusting to humidity and mosquitos. I love to take pictures and read fashion magazines.... and to talk about nothing in particular (ok, and my dogs).
