Outfit of the Day

The Watch Hut are one of the sponsors for the 2014 MAD Blog Awards. And they are running a competition for bloggers to write an ‘Outfit of the Day’ post including a watch from The Watch Hut website.

The Watch Hut is the UK’s largest online retailer of watches, offering a wide selection of timepieces. I have had a look around it previously for a couple of other blog posts, namely a Valentine’s Day Blogging Assignment and Win with The Watch Hut.

So here’s my outfit of the day. When I’m not in work clothes, I wear jeans most of the time, so I need to feel comfortable in them. My favourite style are high waisted ones, as they are more flattering to my figure. I’ve teamed these with a striped Breton knitted top. To finish off my look, I’ve chosen a pair of trainers, as I’m not happy if my feet are uncomfortable, since they blister very easily. And I don’t go anywhere without a bag, so I’ve chosen this black flap over shoulder bag for all my clutter.

Then I decided to choose the Marc by Marc Jacobs Ladies Pelly Black Rubber Strap Watch. The black leather strap will compliment my outfit of the day. This watch is currently retailing at £131.

Win with The Watch Hut

The Watch Hut are sponsors of the Best Writer category in the 2014 MAD Blog Awards. And they are running a competition for bloggers to write a post about their favourite watch or accessory on The Watch Hut website upto £100.

The Watch Hut is the UK’s largest online retailer of watches, offering a wide selection of timepieces. I have had a browse around it previously for a Valentine’s Day Blogging Assignment, but chose higher priced watches that time. So back to the drawing board this time.

Whilst browsing I came across Eco-Drive watches. I’m always interested in anything eco. I hadn’t heard of Eco-Drive so I googled it and found out that these watches operate by converting light into energy. No battery needed. I have purchased wind-up watches in the past, but I have a tendency to either forget to wind-up or damage them by over-winding. The idea of Eco-Drive took my fancy.

I decided to choose the Citizen Ladies Eco-Drive 180 Watch EW1270-06A, as my favourite watch. The black leather strap will compliment all my outfits. This watch is currently retailing at £71, 21% off the RRP.

Valentine’s Day Blogging Assignment

The Watch Hut are running a competition for bloggers to pair together a gents and ladies watch.

The Watch Hut is the UK’s largest online retailer of watches, offering a wide selection of timepieces, so this assignment took some time for me to choose. Ladies and Gents watches are very different in style naturally, so after some deliberation I decided to choose two watches from the same brand. I opted for the brand Guess, to link in with guessing what the surprise Valentines watches might be. Then I chose something sparkly for the lady with black, white and pink interchangeable straps, so she can change the colour to coordinate with her outfit. And a stylish black watch for the gent. Both watches have leather straps.

Happy Valentines Day
