Daniel Wellington - Dapper Durham Rose Gold 34mm

Hey my friends! I hope your week has been going well! Anyone else still in shock that we're already into May? Time needs to slow its roll! ;)...heh, I guess pun intended because today's post is about a watch and the matching nail art I did!

So today is about my new Daniel Wellington Dapper Durham watch in rose gold! I am seriously obsessed with this watch...I've been wearing it almost daily for the last 2 weeks and I can't get enough of it. It's classic and understated and wearable with every single outfit I have. The face is the perfect size for me - not too big or too small in my opinion. It's clean and fresh looking while also making me feel incredibly stylish and sensible. Just perfection.

I love the white face with the blue dials and the date indicator at the bottom is a lovely added touch. It's low profile so I don't have a big monster of a watch strapped to me all day (I have a larger watch that ends up bothering me as the day goes on and I usually end up taking it off).

The leather strap is really lovely as well. This watch comes in various leather colors, but the Durham shade I got changes color with movement and wear. You can see near the watch face, the leather is much darker, and then where it bends around my wrist, it lightens pretty drastically. This happened with the first wear of the watch and it's personally something I really appreciate...but keep that in mind in case you're not a fan of that finish.

The only thing I wish was different was the strap length. I have TINY wrists and even though I can buckle this all the way to the 3rd last hole, I don't like how short the extra strap is. If you have larger wrists, just keep in mind that you may not have much extra length on this. Make sure to measure before ordering!

This is my second watch from Daniel Wellington and I really can't get enough of this brand. The quality of the watches is great (I'm not a watch aficionado, but this isn't a cheap or poorly made brand) and I love wearing this as my jewelry for the day. The kind folks over at Daniel Wellington have offered you all a 15% discount until May 15th so if you've ever been interested in this brand, want to treat yourself (or maybe your mom for mother's day), this is a great opportunity to do so. Use codDwwondrouslypolished to take advance of this discount :) 

As an aside, look at my nail art! :D I don't know why, but I'm so excited about it. I was inspired by the watch face and I just liked the look of the random numbers on each nail. I used a base of OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls and then did the roman numerals and the dial with acrylic paints. Thought they were fun :)
