Daniel Wellington and Me | Why Watches Are My Favorite Accessory


I saw Kendall Jenner wearing a Daniel Wellington watch + cuff so, like, I had to have a Daniel Wellington watch + cuff.

Okay, I’m kidding, that’s not why I had to have a Daniel Wellington watch, but I do have a cool story to go along with that which I will share at the end of this post. And also, if you want to talk current IT girls, which I love doing–to me, Kendall can do no wrong. Right? Do you style obsess over Kenny? Or do you gravitate more toward the likes of her sister Kylie? Or mayber her bffs GiGi, Bella, and Hailey?


I am a watch person. Don’t believe me? Just watch!

Okay, sorry, from this point on–serious face.

But really, for years, I have been the type to have a watch on me. When I was young I thought they were cool–v grown up, ya know? At that point in life, I didn’t have a phone on me 24/7 that could tell me the time. Although that has changed, I still prefer wearing an accessory that is in sync with the ticking minutes of the day.

Watches denote a certain lifestyle. I have three watches, including this black and rose gold Daniel Wellington, that I rotate between. Each watch is different but each has a timeless style to it. A good watch isn’t typically cheap–so when I purchase, I go for the ones that I won’t get tired of after a couple years.

I feel so lucky that Daniel Wellington reached out to collaborate with me. I had already been spying his watches and really appreciating the “of the world” style that seemed to come along with them. (Seriously, browse their Instagram account–it’s not just a collection of watch pics, this grid serves up some serious inspo: @danielwellington) His minimal designs denote a lifestyle akin to adventure, travel, and an appreciation for life’s little moments.

(and no lie, I really did see the pic Kendall posted of her watch and, as a blogger, I thought to myself: hm, I wonder what Daniel Wellington is looking for in their influencers… I want to be one–AND THEN, the next morning, I had an e-mail from them. I’m for real. So there’s my WOW story with Daniel Wellington and the blogger gods. Maybe tonight I need to go to sleep asking what Gucci looks for in their influencers 😉 ha!)

Well, I am about to go on a month’s worth of adventuring! (Yay!) And best believe Danny is coming with. I leave for NYC (my future home) this Wednesday and after spending the weekend there–I am off to Korea! (South, people.) Starting in my Mom’s hometown, then Seoul, and then exploring the snowy mountains where the 2018 Winter Olympics will be held, I’ll be traveling around the country for three weeks!
