Boy do I have the most gorgeous watch to show you all today. I genuinely cannot stop looking at it. I recently got the opportunity to collaborate with Adexe London and I quite honestly jumped at the chance. A pretty watch is something that’s been on my wishlist for the longest time and now I have one, I cannot imagine it not sitting on my wrist. Adexe London offer a supreme collection of watches ranging widely in price so they are brilliant for treating yourself or a loved one. A possible graduation or birthday present this Summer? Or maybe something to think about as Christmas isn’t actually that far away. Scarily enough, it’ll be here before you know it!
Picking just one of their many incredible watches to style was difficult but this one just jumped out at me. My go to colour for jewellery and accessories alike since I was a young teenager has been silver. My jewellery box is quite literally overflowing with different shades of it and the occasional black item. It’s only been over the past year that I seem to have succumbed to the rose-gold hype. The Meek Grande Rose Gold is unisex and the watch face is 40.5mm in diameter. I personally have quite tiny wrists yet it sits really nicely on them and compliments my tattoos really well if I do say so myself.
Its presentation on arrival radiated quality with its sleek branded box and small envelope containing my personal warranty and handwritten model number. The case and strap material is hand-polished stainless steel and the glass, curved hardened crystal. Because of this, the sheer beauty of the design and the fact that each watch is hand-crafted, I think it fully deserves its £109 price tag. It also has a 5 year battery life and its water resistance is 3 ATM. This means you won’t have to worry about every day contact with water but you will need to remove it whilst showering/bathing.
Black is my favourite colour to wear, decorate with and well, buy everything in, shocker. Therefore the combination of black and rose-gold on this watch was nothing short of perfect for my current style. I thought the black watch face was also such a fabulous alternative to the usual white and bright faces and offered a gorgeous contrast between the colours. When seeing this watch in the flesh for the first time, my initial thought was how incredibly professional but pretty it looked. Just as easy to dress up as to dress down so todays post will be a little fashion shoot showcasing how easy styling the watch from the desk to dinner is.
I imagine the majority of people have to wear mostly monochrome outfits or uniforms in their day job. I’ve gone for a typical office vibe with this styling. I like to think if I worked in an office I’d still wear funky trousers if allowed.
As you can see from the pictures, the colour of this watch is beautifully accentuated and stands out against the black and white colours.
In an office environment, you’re expected to wear minimal jewellery too to stay professional. This watch exerts class, simplistic elegance and is a little bit flash without being too in your face.
Who doesn’t love getting glammed up for date night? It’s not often that I get to do it anymore so having an accessory as gorgeous as this on my arm other than my boyfriend makes it even more special.
In all honesty, I’d usually go for a much darker number to wear for a date night. As it is Summer and yellow is all the range right now, I decided to wear this super cute long skirt matched with a little white off the shoulder top.
Despite there being all sorts of colours going on, the watch still sits perfectly in the mix. It adds a beautiful extra touch of femininity.
