Reflecting on Time and Watches this New Year x Daniel Wellington

Today I’m sharing a different type of post. You have probably noticed, there’s someone new with me! Meet Kale, my boyfriend. He agreed to do this post with me, and you know what? I think he had fun! We are celebrating our second holiday season together, this year. It’s crazy to see how quickly time flies! This time of year, it’s good to stop and take a moment to remember the special people in your life. So, for this morning of the shoot, we stopped our regular lives and froze our butts off having fun together. Since it’s almost the New Year and I’m talking about time, it’s so perfect that we are wearing our new watches courtesy of Daniel Wellington!

Daniel Wellington is a swedish watch company that makes stunning sleep watches for everyday wear. They have a variety of styles in rose gold and silver with the smoothest leather bands! Kale is wearing the Dapper Sheffield in rose gold, and I have the Classic Black Sheffield, also in rose gold. I love the blue second hand on Kale’s and the dark face on mine, they really make the watches unique!

I really wanted to do this post with Kale because he had been saying for months now that he wanted a new watch, so I knew the perfect present for him for Christmas! Since my family is in Ohio, we won’t be spending Christmas together, but we are looking forward to another amazing New Year’s Eve! For our first New Year’s together, last year we went out, I wore a sparkly dress, we danced, drank champagne, and kissed at midnight. It sounds typical, but I had never done a big New Year’s before, and with someone special it was really the perfect night! My feet did hurt by midnight, so this year I’m bringing reinforcements! We don’t quite know our plans yet for this year, but I do know we’ll have a great time! I’ll be wearing this sparkly dress, and we’ll both have our Daniel Wellington watches!
