On Time, On Trend...

Daniel Wellington discount code january 2016About two years ago, I went through a phase of appreciating chunky, masculine watches - the type of watch that weighs down your arm and poses a potential threat to anyone coming even close to your swinging arms.  However, the pile of intimidating chronograph watches in one of my accessory drawers would suggest the appreciation was pretty short-lived! Somewhere along the line, I developed a much stronger love for elegant timepieces; I'm talking slim leather straps, clean faces and minimal designs.  So, speaking as someone with narrow wrists, my introduction to the highly-coveted brand Daniel Wellington earlier this year was a very welcome one!  I've shared the Women's Classy Sheffield on A Glass Of Ice, as well as the Men's Classic Sheffield... and now it's time for the spotlight to shine on the gorgeous Women's Classy Bristol!

Daniel Wellington holiday packaging
When selecting a watch, the first thing I had in mind this time around was delicacy.  I was thinking of theatre productions, along with sumptuous dining experiences and special festive events.  Over the past few months I've gone on and on about dainty jewellery and well, the same applies to watches!  The Classy Bristol* in Daniel Wellington's delicate 26mm design ticked all of the right boxes - it features a slim dial, elegant appearance and subtle Swarovski crystals that provide just enough femininity to see the timepiece through from daytime to evening-wear.  Oh and a bonus is that I haven't even needed to pierce a hole further down the strap, it fits perfectly!

If I didn't already have this brown leather watch wrapped around my wrist, it'd certainly be heading for my Christmas wishlist and especially as at this time of year Daniel Wellington offer the service of holiday gift-wrapping, making it the ultimate festive treat.  Red ribbons?  Yes please!

  6. Such a beautiful time piece, Gabrielle. The only accessory I do not wear is a watch though I think that should change soon. DWs have been everywhere recently so perhaps I shall start with them!

    I see you opted for the more classic strap rather than their red blue colourful ones *_^

    How can one not be on time and on trend with the brand, right? Hope you had a great Christmas celebration and you are looking forward to the year winding down! I know I am, most definitely *_^
