Lately I have been craving analog. Has this happened to anyone else?
I love what I do. Seriously, I LOVE WHAT I DO! Blogging has become a deep passion of mine, and it is a great joy to plan shoots, edit photos, write articles, go shopping (lol!), and do marketing. Yet with all of this time spent on my computer and phone, I find myself craving life without a screen.
Obviously my career does not allow that. Because I so enjoy blogging, that’s not going to be stopping any time soon either. Don’t get me wrong technology is great, but there is so much more to life than what we can get from a screen! So I’ve been changing various parts of my life to a more old school, analog type feel to not have my ever-expanding screen time, expand even further. One way I’m doing this is through watches.
I used to not like watches. As a piano player I didn’t like anything on my wrist. Don’t ask me why I didn’t just take it off while I was playing and put it back on after. I was an eccentric kid. What can I say? Anyway, let’s not dive down that rabbit hole of weirdness, and get back to the subject at hand.
Watches. I was thinking of going with the iWatch, which I just think is so cool. However, this does not solve the problem of me looking at screens too often. Seriously guys, I am craving the simple, analog part of life. I need balance. I also really like how classy an analog watch looks. It really is a great accessory that can pull together an outfit. There’s just something about wearing a watch that makes me feel like an adult. It’s a very adult thing to do after all, ha!
Then I found Wristology. I really, REALLY love their watches. Use the code wonderstruck10 to get 10% off your purchase.
What I Love About Them
Their faces! These watches have big faces! I can’t stand tiny ones. I don’t know why. Blame my mom, she can’t stand them. She passed it down to me. There is just something glorious about a beautiful big watch face that takes up your wrist. It makes a statement… and you can actually see what time it is.
You can create your own watch. And all the creatives sing hallelujah! Wristology has some pretty spectacular pre-built watches, so if creating one isn’t your thing, you’re still going to get an awesome watch. Believe me, I looked, they’re great. For those who want to create their own: You can choose the face you love best and pair it with the band you love best. Bam! You have created a watch that is all of your glorious self and it is spectacular.
Oo oo! Also, I really really love the case. It’s a soft case, but the watch comes packed in a nice fitted foam. It’s quite pretty. I’m a fan of navy and gold so the color scheme won me over.
What Did I Do?
I created my own. I used the “Olivia Scalloped Gold Face” and the “Blue Leather Strap.” It reminds me of the beach and summer and warmer weather. This is said as it is currently 43 degrees outside. To a former Los Angeles native, this is equal to the arctic. Also I love a pop of color!
How Do I Wear Them?
Most of the time I wear it solo. They look really nice paired with bracelets though. The band is so simple that I’ve found it really easy to pair with other accessories.
Do I Recommend Them?
Absolutely 100% yes. I am very blessed by how my watch works, feels, and looks. When I was browsing them on the internet I really enjoyed their look. Honestly I was even more blown away in person. I think this watch is a high quality watch. I wasn’t expecting the nice packaging either. Don’t know what I was expecting, but I was impressed. I really appreciate it when companies pay attention to little details like that. It’s excellence, and it shows they take pride in their product.
I’m going to be getting a couple more in the coming months. I want a dressier watch and a different casual one that I can wear with more outfits. There is a foreboding of an obsession beginning. I’m okay with it. These are a fabulous gift too. I think they have styles to bridge all ages.
