Travelling can make accessorising tricky. I’d love to wear lots of funky outfits and mix it up more when I travel, but there’s not that much space in my luggage and I prefer to travel light. So my clothes are usually plain, simple, and easy to mix and match. Instead, I focus on the small stuff that can mean you look different in every photo, even if you’re wearing YET another plain black tee. For me, those things are sunglasses, and watches.
A statement watch can be a nice, simple way to make an outfit a bit more glam or interesting – and they’re small and lightweight. I’ve got a nicely growing collection going on at the moment and I’m always looking for funky new watches to add to it. So when Nordgreen got in touch about a collaboration I was well up for it. And I’ve discovered some awesome, stylish watches that are PERFECT for travel.
They all have interchangeable straps. Which means you could buy one or two watches and a few straps, and mix and match to coordinate with several different outfits. Or to match your sunnies! These are my two new Nordgreen watches – let me know what you think…
My New Watches
All the Nordgreen ranges feature understated, simplistic Scandi design from renowned Danish designer Jakob Wagner. It’s right up my street and I adore the clean, minimalistic design. And I really love the interchangeable straps!
First up is the Infinity watch in rose gold and pink leather. With a 16mm strap and 32mm case, it’s a bit daintier than most of my watches – but I love the pretty design of the face. Pink leather gives it a really sweet summery look – but I’ve already got my eye on a rose gold mesh strap to mix it up with.
Next up is my personal favourite. The Native has a nice, big 36mm face that looks really clean and simple. Again, I opted for rose gold (I’m just not a silver gal) with a classic brown leather strap. This has instantly become my staple watch, mostly because it matches my one and only “nice handbag”. And there are a bunch of strap options I can order to make it feel like a brand new watch!
Giving Back Programme
The other thing I loved about Nordgreen is their Giving Back Programme. Every watch purchase makes a positive impact through one of the company’s carefully chosen charities. One watch can equal two months of clean water for a person in The Central African Republic, two months of education for a child in india, or preserve 50sqm of Latin American rain forest. So you can feel good about your online shopping habits!
