My motto in life (well hardly an actual motto, but y’know) is if it’s grim outside, dress like it’s a bright day and stay indoors so you can pretend it’s not. That’s certainly what I did today anyhow, dressed in a weather inappropriate pretty cotton shirt and pinafore, surrounded by daffodils and plenty of cups of tea. I know it’s time for tea, because I’ve got a super wonderful new watch (see what I did there).
Olivia Burton have the most darling of time pieces, all with such a lovely hints of vintage so perfect for ladies with taste like mine! My particular watch is a bird print scarf watch which ties at the wrist, something I thought would feel rather like a piece of jewellery than a watch (though, I suppose watches are considered jewellery anyway, but I hope you catch my drift) and it certainly does which is nice. It’s so light on my wrist which means I’ll actually wear it; anything too bulky, heavy or tight and I’m likely to take it off within minutes (I’m looking at you, retro casio).
Now having this as my new time-telling friend, I’m already finding myself poking around the rest of the range on their website. I have my eye on one with a ‘classic’ strap next, perhaps the floral, or colour crush, or animal motif. I’m getting carried away, whoops. Just FYI, f you love it as much as it takes my fancy, you can purchase from Joy the Store or direct emailing the lovely ladies over at firstname.lastname@example.org.
