Apple Watch 38mm Milanese Loop

Let me first start off by saying that I swore that I would not cave in getting the Apple Watch. Well, being the Apple fan girl that I am, it just took one fitting appointment with a sharp Apple associate, and I was sold. Read more!

Michele Mini Urban Diamond Watch

Every fashion lover should have a timepiece that is elegant and yet appropriate for everyday casual outfits.

Michele Mini Urban

Michele makes watches that are casual, fun, dressy and elegant. Remember this Tahitian Jelly Bean? This is just one of many styles, but this Mini Urban with diamonds stood out to me as a great watch to start a timepiece collection. What is nice about this is that it has a very subtle "bling" to it.... ;) There is nothing nicer than subtle bling.

What's going to be your holiday timepiece this season?

Marc by Marc Jacobs Marci 36MM Rose Gold Watch

Beck, Modest Mouse, and Cage the Elephant--oh my!

I was recently in New York for Governors Ballmusic festival, and was lucky to find a great pickup at the Marc by Marc Jacobs store in SoHo. I've been on the prowl for a rose gold watch for a while, but I haven't found one that quite tickled my fancy. The Marc by Marc collection rose gold watches are very nice, but most of them have the brand name plastered all around the face of the watch in bright whites or in colors. Personally, I'd rather have something that is not as loud or self-advertising. I was lucky to have found the perfect watch in Manhattan!

This Marci36MM Rose Gold watch is discreet with its circular, mirror-like watch face, and same-tone brand name which acts in place of normal watch face numbers. It's also sleek with its linked-chain band. It's very comfortable to wear, and when worn in heat, it doesn't make you sweat too intensely. The band is smooth, the watch made out of stainless steel, and doesn't cause irritation, which is important as I have extremely sensitive skin. Overall, it's a beautiful piece, and is as eye-catching as it is discreet.

What kind of watch is on your wish list?

Splash Time: Michele Tahitian Jelly Bean Watch in Sea Green

Add a splash of color to your summer ensemble! Large-faced watches are still in and hotter than ever in bright colors like turquoise, corals and bright whites.

I must've eyed up this watch online for a good three months (a good way to ward off impulsiveness), but I've never had the opportunity to go see it in person until this vacation. I saw a one-page ad of Michele Tahitian Jelly Beans grace a page of the local island magazine, and I knew it was time to explore. After biking to the resort jeweler, it was a relief to see that the color of the watch was indeed what I hoped it to be. The sea green is such a great color that really works with other bright hues of summer (like the Grenadine bag charm).

I'm so happy I waited to purchase this on the island that I've been coming to visit since I was only six weeks old! It means so much more to me, and to be honest, I haven't stopped double-taking at my wrist. A refreshing piece to add to your everyday-ensemble, this Michele watch is ready to catch some rays with you!

What's your "everyday" watch?
