"" FutureLint (I have nothing to wear!): watching watches, all day

watching watches, all day

So many of the kids in my school are going on field trips this week... I'm just sitting around all day, doing nothing. Well, actually I'm reading fashion blogs, finishing the last few pages of The World According to Garp, and searching for the perfect watch. I don't know why I've been focused on watches lately, I just really don't like taking out my cell phone to know the time and I have NO internal clock or concept of time. All my friends make fun of me because I love old clocks and have about 6 of them (in my tiny 4 room condo) and they tick-tick-tick super loudly. I don't notice it, but they do. I have a few watches, most of which I need to get new batteries for. I think I've got it though... I almost ordered this one

but it's a little too... ghetto? diva? baby phat? sorry Michael Kors, it's just a little too MUCH for me.

I think this one is THE one. It's glorious and big and not as expensive as the other one but still nothing to sneeze at and the color is called bone which I enjoy for some reason...
I can justify it to myself because the way I get paid at work is stretched out over 10 months of the year, so even though my last day is Friday, I'll still get two more paychecks. During that time I'll be working at the golf club and getting paid from there too, so it's like double money for a month! Whoo! Expensive watch, here I come!

Here is my outfit today (one of the 4th grade teachers told me I looked like Lucille Ball today and I almost kissed her!)

I don't know if you can tell but the dress has tiny lavender polka dots and lavender piping!

Watch #2 is gorgeous! I like the band of watch #1 but I agree- the face is a little too ghetto fab for my taste.

That is a very cute dress! Is it navy with lavender? Adorable! A little change-up from the cute but usual white dots.

Georg Jensen is having a magnificent sale on their sportswatches, as well, though the online store is sold out. If you like what you see, try calling a couple of the stores. They're fab.
