It's TIME

For some, it's time to start preparing for school.  For other's, summer is completely over and you're back into the swing of things.  Whether your days are numbered or the dog days are truly over, it's time to start finding the perfect watch.  

I read this article a while ago that was trying to teach parents how to seem younger.  One of the tips was for adults to ditch their watch.  Um, sorry... but I'm going to have to disagree with them on that one!  Watches are definitely becoming more and more popular with our generation.  In fact, some fashion bloggers have been doubling up on timepieces.

I will admit, sometimes I forget that I'm wearing a watch and will find myself checking the time on my phone instead.  The watch is definitely an accessory.  However, watches serve a useful purpose when you're in class.

I am one of those students who actually turns her phone off during class and most of my classes ban laptop use.  There is usually a clock in the classroom, but it's always on the back wall.  It's so awkward when you turn around to look at the clock and the professor catches you.  Not to mention the rudeness factor.

When in class, cell phones really should be turned off (not just on silent or vibrate).  Wearing a watch to class has at least two benefits: a discreet way of knowing how many more minutes are left in class and creating a perfect stack.  Michael Kors makes great watches that are very popular among college girls, but Anne Klein watches are very similar and more affordable.













Do you wear Michael Kors watches?  Are you a fan of the Anne Klein styles and prices?

  9. After watching The Blind Side, I had to get a white watch! I searched everywhere and could only find them at Fossil. Luckily, they had one on sale for under $100. Now white watches are everywhere for every price!

    I just recently bought a gold watch on sale for $20!! I love it!

    Great post!

  11. completely agree that a watch is an accessory. I find myself treating it as that pretty often (checking my phone instead). Either way, I wouldnt go to class without it!
