Watching It

Today I had to make a rather difficult and important decision. Well, I say today, it's something I've been thinking about for at least two months. So, I've got an important birthday coming up and my mother said she'd buy me a watch. I've never had a watch before so not only is it very exciting but I had to make sure I made the right choice. After all, I've got to look at it on my wrist everyday.

So, after lots and lots of searching, I eventually whittled it down to these three. I loved them all for different reasons and so my decision was hard - my mother got a bit irritated in the jewellers today after I had them all on again off again for over an hour.

I love the 'bling' element of the Michael Kors watch. I also adore big watches on women and love all the details on the face and bezel. I also thought it would be quite useful being silver and gold. But, in the end, I ruled this one out as, for some reason, large watches really do look ridiculous on me and it wasn't quite right.

I love the simplicity and elegance of the Guess watch. It's timeless and looks so elegant and I love the mother of pearl face. 
The DKNY watch I also though extremely elegant. There's a little less detail and perhaps craftsmanship but, in the end, after a long and thoughtful conversation with myself and my mother about the watches, my entire wardrobe and occasions I'd wear it to, this was the one I went for.

I know it sounds silly but every time I put it on, it just felt right. I think gold definitely suits my skin tone better than silver and I've always thought gold looks much more luxurious and chic. Also, I'm still very young (21 in just over a week!) and I felt that perhaps the others were less age appropriate. Also, almost all of my jewellery is gold and so it didn't seem like a good idea to buy a watch that wouldn't go with any of it.

I know I've made the right choice and I'm so excited to open it on my birthday; it was definitely worth the two months of thinking, about five hours of trying on and one annoyed mother.
