Guess Who?

Watch by Guess, courtesy H. Samuel, Cardigan - Topshop, Shirt - M&S

As my blog has grown and I've had more opportunities to work with different brands, I occaisionally feel like a bit of a walking advertisement. An advertisement for all my favourite things though, so I hope that makes it a bit better?!

H Samuel were kind enough to send me this watch to celebrate the fact that they now stock the full range of Guess Watches and I love it. It's quite modern, and dare I use the phrase funky (I am aware funky isn't a terribly hip word these days, much like the word hip, but if I'm using it ironically..?) Funky isn't usually very me but it's so pretty and I love the fact that it tells me the date and the day of the week too! I can never remember that stuff!

I went for a monochrome outfit to show it off, but to be honest I've been wearing it every day since it appeared in the post. When I was younger I didn't wear a watch very much, so wearing one now always makes me feel like a proper grown up! I'm so busy and important I need to know the time always. Ahem...

Oooh, lucky! I love a good chunky watch, & white is a colour that'll go with anything. Nice snag, Harriet!

Oh yes, blogging and the lure of the freebies... But you went for a good one here, Harriet, the watch is preeetty (and funky, yesss! I'm all for the re-introduction of embarrassing words. My favourite: Wicked. So Camilla P-B) and you've done a great job presenting it. xoxo

Nice presentation. It's nice that you are presenting such lovely items on your blog. I do not accept freebies, but I love it when others do so that I can admire it on their blogs. That watch is perfect for every day wear.

I like the face actually, rather retro. I'll check if they have it in red. I'm quite fond of using watches as bracelets.

Rachel said...

Love it! I really want a chunky watch like that!

Lino said...

Oo it's lovely! I used to be a big watch fan but I found myself CONSTANTLY checking the time which made me very anxious! That's probably just me being a bit odd though.. x

daisychain said...

I've got one too! I've always used my blackberry as a watch but it sucks when I run out of battery! Today was my first full on day of wearing it and it's so comfortable, though I still keep checking my phone for the time!

Little Lj said...

Ooh I like it. I've never wore a watch but recently been thinking I probably should do. It's the kind of thing grown ups do right? *clueless*

Miss Raj said...

Wow, love the watch. I've seen a lot of these primary/block colour watches but they can often tend to look quite tacky - this one screams "funky" as you put it lol - very stylish indeed! x

I love the look of this watch. I wore one solidly for about 15 years but then when my final one broke, I felt I was happier not 'clockwatching' or 'watch-watching' all the time. x

Elle Sees said...

Why yes I do rather fancy that watch!

Vicki said...

love the white :) i got a little guess package too! :) xo

Lauren said...

What a great blog score Harriet! It really suits you. x

Chloe Likes To Talk said...

Aaah love this, just the right mix of modern and classic shapes, nie and chunky without being to much. Very lovely, and rather liking to the monochrome to go with it.

Tass said...

Oo it's gorgeous! I don't have a watch but I've had a look at these and they're reasonably priced.

Steph said...

Guess has always been my fave watch brand, for an everyday affordable kinda watch!
I luv the cardigan by the way!

LilyLipstick said...

Love the white and how simple the design is. Looks fab with that cardigan too. x

LapindeLune said...

This is gorgeous! They can send me one if they like, i promise to wear it around town;)

threesmallapples said...

I love a chunky white watch so I'm a lil' jealous of this!! :) xx

Filipa said...

Oh what a great match! :) It really suits you Harriet, and it's very funky ;P

Vintage Reflection said...

Lucky you, that watch is lovely! I feel the same about wearing watches makes me feel grown up too!! x

Emily @ Wardrobe Block said...

Do you know what? I never wear watches! But I always love them... I need to get into wearing them :(

Winnie said...

Harriet! Snap! I have the same watch and I am over the moon with it. I may have had a few too many links taken out of it though as it's not loose on my wrist like yours but still, I think it's pretty awesome :)
