tomboy style


I was thrilled when Daniel Wellington offered to send me a watch because I love integrating classic, somewhat masculine pieces into my wardrobe. I went with the Southampton, partially because dark blue & pink were our wedding colours and that particular scheme was on my mind, partially because I really enjoy the flexibility of the NATO strap (fun fact: when we visited O’Connell’s in Buffalo, I said,  “Look at these cool dog collars!” My friend Joe had to tell me that what I was looking at were actually watch straps. Whoops). 


Geoff took these square format photos with his Mamiya C220 camera, a camera I am increasingly less intimated by.

  5. It's a gorgeous watch!
    I love that second photo; the tones are beautiful!
    I use the C220 and it is definitely intimidating at first but when you tame it, it's a wonderful tool!

    1. Thanks! I think the tones are so nice too. Yeah, too bad those kinds of cameras are so heavy, because when they're good, they're soooo good.

  6. What a great watch! It does add a nice tomboyish touch, but it's also very feminine. A classic piece that I'm sure you'll be able to wear for a long time.

  10. These watches are great. I've been wearing the same cheap gold casio for years now but am getting tempted by a change, maybe it's time...

    1. Hehe, time. I have a gold Casio that I could never get used to wearing, personally. It was so heavy. This one is nice because I can forget that I'm wearing it, except when I need to use it.

  12. That sure is a gorgeous watch, so 'you'. That second shot is so impeccable.
    I like menswear too. I recently ordered red oxfords & my mom asked me why I like 'boy shoes' so much. :/
