Today is the first day Apple fans/addicts can order the much-anticipated Apple Watch. So in honor of that (and because deep down I, too, want the watch), I am going to share some watches that I've been eyeing at some of my favorite stores. Since I bought my current watch in December, I've fallen in love with watches and how they're able to dress up any outfit without trying too hard.
|Here is my current watch! Ignore my pasty, freckled arm, ha!|
I love the color, the butterflies, and just how versatile the watch can be while also being it's stand-alone accessory. I need it!
#2: Olivia Burton Undisputed Class Watch in Rose Gold/Black via Modcloth
At some point I should own something a little more classy. A black leather banded watch is the way I'd probably go since metal watches get cold and they almost always in the past have snagged my little arm hairs, yeeowch! I love the rose gold paired with the black as well, feminine but also so sleek.
#3: Meller Leaf Watch from Francesca's
I just love the pattern on the watch face! So dreamy!
Okay, confession: if I could, I would link EVERY SINGLE WATCH from Francesca's. Seriously, every watch is super cute and super affordable. Another confession: my current watch is from Francesca's. I can't get enough of Francesca's accessories (I own 3-4 of their bags as well). This one is so fresh and pretty!
#5: Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS watch from Garmin
Okay, so I don't think I'd wear this all the time if I got it, but being a sort-of runner (still getting back into the swing of things since my foot injury) I think having a GPS watch is super useful. And this one has some of the best reviews of the ones out there currently. It's been on my Amazon wish list for a LONG time too. Someday, maybe.
As for the Apple Watch? I have to admit that when the designs came out, I swooned over the rose gold Apple Watch Edition, but once the prices came out and that one was at minimum $12,000, I definitely knew it wasn't going to happen. So for now, the cheapest option would be the one I'd get. But I'll probably wait a bit before throwing down $350. For now, these cheaper options will suffice!
