When I was younger, a watch was never something I was interested in - I always thought it was for old people. I mean, why would I need a watch when I can just look at my phone to tell the time?! Now whilst that's still true, I've come to realise that a watch is so much more than something we use to tell the time. For me, a nice watch is a fashion statement and usually something that's special as they're often bought as gifts from loved ones for special birthdays or Christmas. I remember getting my Michael Kors watch as a Christmas gift a few years ago and I felt so sophisticated and grown up with a designer watch on my wrist. Since then I've built a small collection of beautiful watches and not a day goes by that I don't wear one of them. I actually find myself using it to tell the time too, believe it or not - despite my phone being constantly glued to my hand.
A watch I've wanted to add to my collection for such a long time now is one from Olivia Burton so when Boutique Goldsmiths offered me on to share with you guys, I just couldn't say no. I mean, look at it! I've seen Olivia Burton watches all over Instagram for years now and I've had one on my 'to-buy' list for quite some time. What I love so much about them is how feminine they are - a lot of them have rose gold detailing which I obviously love or pastel hues and butterfly prints. They're just absolutely stunning watches and come presented in the most beautiful boxes that make them an ideal gift for a loved one. It's my little sisters 18th birthday soon and I know she'd love to receive something like this.
The watch I chose from Boutique Goldsmiths is the white dial bracelet silver and rose gold watch which I totally fell in love with the moment I set eyes on it. Most of my other watches have fabric straps so I'd been wanting to add one with a metal strap and clasp to my collection for a while. This one is perfect as I love the mixture of both silver and rose gold on the strap and the rose gold detailing on the face - it's so versatile and will go with everything in my wardrobe. I also love that it's not too bulky and doesn't have too much going on - I much prefer simple elegant watches over those that are clingy.
Boutique Goldsmiths stock a whole range of amazing jewellery brands including Olivia Burton, Michael Kors and Armani so if you're looking for a new watch or any other special jewellery for that matter, look no further. The choices are endless and they have stores all over the UK so there should one near you!
