From Daytime To Date Night With Adexe London!

29th July 2018

Hey everyone!

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!

The Adexe Meek Grande Rose Gold watch // £109

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.

Date Night

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.

    Looks so simple yet visually pleasing haha! I can relate to loving the colour black a bit too much and buying everything when it is available in black! You styled the watch really well – I love all the outfits! Also, I would love to see a blog post all about your tattoos if that is something you’d ever want to do (: xx

  3. Oh wow what a lovely watch, it looks like the perfect watch for day or night doesnt it! I want one now

      Aww thank you Kate, that means so much! Ooh really!? Isn’t it the best! Thank you so much, I thought the exact same, they go so well together! X

  5. Ahhh you’ve made me want one! I literally never wear a watch, I’d really love to treat myself to a nice one and this is just my kind of thing. I hate normal gold jewellery and rose gold is a much prettier alternative. I also LOVE that the face is black, that’s so rare in a watch. I’m in love with how you’ve photographed this, your contrast between work and evening shows you only need one fab watch to rule them all! Plus those trousers and the Monki skirt are both absolutely stunning. I’m so tempted to treat myself to one when I’ve got the funds x

    That watch is so pretty! I love rose gold stuff too – it always looks amazing. My boyfriend got me a watch for Christmas and I love wearing it, I didn’t think I would at first but I feel it really adds something to a look. I love both your outfits in the pictures, that skirt is so pretty! Also, them trousers in your daytime look, look so comfy! Great post 😀


  9. glowsteady says:

    I love this watch! It’s so pretty. 40mm is pretty big though, think I’d need a smaller one. 5 years is such a long time for battery too. Your photos are amazing here too (as always) x


  10. What a lovely watch! I’m obsessed with anything and everything rose gold! I love how versatile it is. It goes well with every outfit. I love your date night look! The colours of the skirt are really pretty! Great post!

  11. The watch is gorgeous! I’d love to see full shots of those outfits though, they look absolutely gorgeous and I’d love to see the full version! Also, funky trousers are the best kind of office trousers 😉

  15. Kayla says:

    I have to admit I am very much cursed when it come to watches. Everyone I’ve owned dies on me within weeks. That being said, I LOVE TO WEAR THEM!!! There’s just this level of sophistication when wearing a beautiful, high end watch I get from one. I wear them for more of a fashion statement really, because it ties together a whole outfit! Your watch is unbelievably beautiful Alice! It goes with every outfit you showed us. So gorgeous!

  20. Absolutely gorgeous watch! Rose gold and coppery tones are just ughhhhh <3 also lovely outfits that you've paired it with. Great post!

  21. Wow, what a gorgeous watch! I love the rose gold mesh band and the slightly domed glass face. The black with the rose gold gives it an elegant look that would make it super easy to pair with just about anything. Count me a new fan of Adexe London!

  26. Nancy says:

    I really like how simple and classy the Adexe London watch looks! It’s a big plus that it has some water resistance – it’s good that you don’t need to worry about having to take it off when you wash your hands. I like that the watch can be paired with so many different occasions!

    Nancy ♥

    I’m not usually a huge watch wearer, but I love the simplicity of this watch. Your photographs are so beautiful (as always) and I love your ‘date night’ outfit. The yellow looks so lovely in summer, especially when it’s covered in flowers!

  30. That watch is bloody stunning!! I also love the black face on it as it’s something a bit different to your standard white (I’ve got a rose gold one from Steelix watches that has a white face). Also obsessed with yellow right now too – I’m sat here in a yellow skirt/trouser combo (its hard to explain without seeing lol) that I wore to the office today! Great post lovely and beautiful images as always! ❤️❤️

  31. Great post Alice. I love a classic watch. Your photos are so dreamy!
