Tick Tock

The other day I was horrified when I noticed that some of the gold plating has rubbed off my favorite Michael Kors watch. I'm taking it as a sign that I need to add a new watch into the rotation (the only logical choice right? I think so).  While my pre-law school budget probably isn't going to allow me to treat myself to any of these a girl can still shop. 

These are a few of my favorites. All very different styles, so let me know which one y'all like best so I can find a knock off ASAP. 


I love the clean face and the leather. A little casual but very classy. 


Obviously I love anything Kate Spade, but this one has been on my wish list for quite a while now. My main trepidation is how similar it is to my michael kors. I feel like I should branch out a bit, right?


I love any and every Michael Kors watch, and this one is no exception. Again with the clean face, but I adore the skinny strap with the big face. 



This one is a totally different look. Square face, leather, chains, etc. It's more of a bracelet than a watch, but I still think it's really fun. Plus since I'll be back in a school environment in three short months I can accessorize a little more casually right?

Now this one... I LOVE the sparkle and the patten leather and the diamonds and the color and did I mention the sparkle? So pretty, but is it a little much. I mean I know it's a lot, but is it too much for everyday life? On the plus side, it's the most affordable of these options. 

Hmm. Decisions decisions. What do y'all think?

I love the guess one!!! I definitely think the sparkle is wearable! I was obsessing over the Michael Kors tortoise and gold link watch for months and randomly found a knock off at target that looks EXACTLY like it!

I love the Kate Spade watch, but you're right, it's similar to the one you probably had!

Love me some gold! Especially that Kate Spade and Guess one! Check out Coach too, I love my Coach watch and they have some cute ones!

I have the KSNY one, and love the way it looks, BUT for some reason the clasp will not stay closed (it opens almost any time I move my wrist) and it has been like this since about the time I got it. I actually returned the first one thinking it was defective, and the replacement does the same thing :( I also had a KSNY watch with a leather band, and the band cracked within the first month... I love almost everything Kate Spade, except maybe the watches... Just some advice :)

I love them all! I don't think the glittery one would be too much for everyday. I think it's the perfect amount of sparkle :)

I love them all but every time I buy a watch I never wear it.

Oooh I love all of these! Have been lusting over that Kate Spade one for I don't know how long, but since I'm a guest blogger for GUESS I definitely have to put my vote in for that one :) It is super sparkly but I think it's the perfect way to dress up a casual outfit! Who doesn't love a little daytime glitz? :)

I love the La Mer one and I saw they just started carrying them at Target!

I love the Kate Spade one!

I have had a silver Michael Kors from my hubby for years and still wear it on the daily! :)

That Kate Spade is gorgeous! If you want a knockoff at a reasonable price, definitely look at Asos. They always have chunky boyfriend watches a la Michael Kors for much cheaper.

I really like the Kate Spade watch, but I also adore the skinny strap on the Michael Kors option too!

My vote's for the Kate Spade watch, but like you said, if it's already so close to your MK then it's a bit harder to justify right? A close second is that Guess sparkler though - what a beauty! I love the rose gold and definitely think it is appropriate for every day. You'll probably be more aware of it than anyone else. Just rock it baby!

I saw one similar to the La Mer at Francesca's. I loved it.

Maya {CharminglyStyled} said...

I'm a fan of the Kate Spade beauty myself, but these are ALL good ideas to me :) I'm looking into getting a new watch once I get my first paycheck with the new job...we'll see how that goes though! Thanks for the inspiration!

Kate Spade hands down it's sophisticated, but the hint of hot pink gives it a fun pop. Plus it's just a good classic style of watch.

That last one is so fun!!! I bought a MK watch last year but end up returning it - I am not one for watches and could not justify spending the $$ on something that I would not use much.

I LOVE the Michael Kors one -- the large face with the thin strap is oh-so-chic!!

Love all of these picks! I have a Refinery29 credit for a La Mer watch and I'm in desperate needs of a casual watch!
