It’s no question that I love watches. Not only are they practical, but they are a fun accessory to wear and can make any “arm party” look on point. Funny thing is, I never really wore a watch until I started student teaching my senior year in college. I remember all I wanted for Christmas that year was this gold Michael Kors watch (and it’s still going strong after all these years!).
Throughout the years, I’ve attempted to step up my watch game by investing in a few more timepieces. I wanted more options to wear on different occasions. I was looking for an oversized gold and black watch and one that was a little smaller and more simple but with a leather band. I went to Nordstrom to shop their collection and I loved that they had something a all price points. I wasn’t ready to make a huge investment, but I knew I wanted a quality timepiece that would last for years to come.
I found this Michael Kors watch and it has been one of my favorites as of late. I love the oversized face and black and gold details. And it’s great to wear just about anything. I still was on the hunt for a watch with leather straps and remembered my co-worker had the most adorable watch from Kate Spade. I loved the girly features and the minimalist design. I knew the leather straps would be a perfect alternative to my gold boyfriend watches. I found this one at Nordstrom and I have been wearing it everyday to work. I like that it’s not heavy or too clunky. The price point was great too!
Ok, so how can you find the perfect watch? Well first, determine your price point. Watches can range from very expensive to under $100. You need to figure out what’s comfortable and go from there. Second, think of it as an accessory. After all, this is something that you will probably wear every day or very often. If gold isn’t your thing, you might want to opt for a two-tone option like this one from Kate Spade or Burberry. Choose something that is fitting to your style and the clothing you wear most. And most importantly, pick a timepiece that looks great on you. I tried this watch on many times before pulling the trigger. After all, you want to love it!

I have that MK watch in silver and absolutely love it! It’s a classic that I’ll wear for years.
I love those watches! I am looking at purchases a new one soon. I have been eyeing the two toned Kate Spade one as well. I feel like it would be a safe investment since I could wear it with just about any jewelry!
Great info and gorgeous pictures!
