Hours in the day

I'm not the kind of person who craves a jam packed schedule, who can get up early, go to bed late, and power through it all on caffeine and adrenaline. A weekend with a single plan is my ideal, however that doesn't always happen, especially this time of year, when there are more events than days in the month.

I had a very busy weekend, kicked off on Thursday night with a shopping event at South Moon Under, then I was up early on Saturday morning for a TJMaxx pre-Black Friday shopping event that started at 7:30 am. Sunday I had a blogger date with Meg, we went to breakfast and then outlet shopping to try and start chipping away at the holiday gift list.

Keeping me on schedule throughout my busy weekend, I had on a lovely timepiece which Daniel Wellington just sent over. The Classic Sheffield Lady in rose gold is simple, elegant, and well, classic. I love wearing a watch, a quick glance at my wrist feels so much more sophisticated than fishing through my purse to find my phone to simply check the time.

While I love so many of Daniel Wellington's preppier watch bands, like the navy and white Glasgow, I can't deny the versatility of the black leather, and I expect it will find a place on my wrist for many years to come.

Thank you to Daniel Wellington, for sponsoring this post.


  1. That is a beautiful watch and your whole outfit looks great! Happy Monday, lovely:)

  2. Such a beautiful watch! I'm jealous! You'll definitely have that watch forever! :)
    And yep...I'm the same way, if I have too many things to do on the weekend I get stressed! But it's been happening a lot more lately

  3. This is easily one of my most favourite of your recent blog looks - that jacket is awesome. And seriously great watch!

  8. I love their watches. So classy and timeless. They have really pretty bands also.

  9. I am not a watch person and I like this watch on you. But I am loving that jacket you are wearing. . .

  10. That's my ideal weekend too. But, like you said, this time of the year it is hard to come by those! I love this watch! Classy!

  11. I love the watch ! I'd wear it in a heartbeat :)
    And I am the one who likes to challenger herself and see how many things I can get done...

  12. How wonderful is to receive such a fab watch which not just help to keep up with plans, but is wonderful addition to your gorgeous look. I love you look.

  13. Such a beautiful look dear, love your watch and bag.

    Check my new post
    See you soon

  14. Love the slight rose gold accent of this watch--so pretty and classic!! I am like you--I don't know how people can work (or even play) sun up to sun down! Sometimes I wish I had more of that in me--but I love my down time and relaxation!


  15. I also like to have a relaxed schedule, but sometimes really busy days just can't be helped! I love your tough girl look here with the leather jacket and that bag is so pretty.

  16. Gorgeous classic look

  17. Classic watch, it's very nice. Did you have any luck at TJ Maxx. I was invited to our local event, but it was too early for me LOL!

  18. I absolutely love your watch! So classic.


  19. I don't love having a jam packed schedule either but sometimes it feels unavoidable this time of year. I love this classic chic outfit, especially that watch!

  20. Such a good outfit! All classic pieces, and that watch is so pretty. :)


  21. Beautiful watch! I'm loving your jacket and bag too!

  22. Loving the stripes with your leather jacket. The watch is super pretty!

  23. I do love the classic look of Daniel Wellington watches. I really like the edge your jacket adds to the look too!

  24. Love everything here, and that watch is stunning! So simple and classic and elegant. And I agree, I need down time in between the activities--that weekend sounds fun but exhausting!

  25. I know the focus of this post is the watch but can we talk about that bag?! In between typing these sentences, I am furiously searching google to find somewhere I can get my handson it in Canada because as far as I'm concerned, it's perfect. And the way you styled it absolutely lets it shine, which is even better. I imagine I've worn similar looks before, hence my enthusiasm, but I also have no doubt that I'll now be wearing one again soon thanks to you :)

  26. I am so not a super packed schedule kind of girl. I can't handle being away from my house that much! But it sounds like you had a lot of fun! Gorgeous watch, and I love that jacket.


  27. Great look, I love the sequined striped shirt! It really pairs well with the denim and the moto jacket. You look very chic!


  28. Loving your hair and that moto jacket! Love the edgier look on you!

  29. Love this outfit!!!
    happy week!


  30. I am like you and prefer one event per weekend. As much I would like to do no house work or errands, I need some time on the weekend to do that too. Love this outfit!


  31. Love this look, so stylish.


  32. The DW watch is gorgeous on you- especially with that leather jacket! Tough + chic. :)

  33. I have been looking for a new watch. Can you believe I dont own one?! I really like the simplicity of a black leather piece. It goes with everything! I am so glad you stopped by my blog so I could find and follow you! I am looking forward to more of your fashion posts! Susan

  34. I am totally the same way!! I need a light schedule so I don't go crazy! I have to recharge :) I love your chic and simple look here!


  35. I literally don't think I have had my watch off since receiving it! It's such a classic and very easy to wear. Love how you styled it with your boyfriend jeans and leather jacket. We are totally in the same place about schedules. We have several full weekends coming up, and I am already nervous about not having down time!
