If you've been a reader of my blog since the beginning you may remember the first ever outfit post I published - I know I do. It was one of the most blistery days of the year - a mild storm had swept Cornwall - and there I was standing on the edge of Portreath harbour in stilettos, attempting to look somewhat poised in front of my new boyfriend who convinced me to let him take my photo. I was wearing baggy leather trousers, a baseball tee and a bomber jacket - not my most sophisticated of ensembles - but I'll always remember that post fondly, as it featured the first item I had ever been gifted as a blogger: a Daniel Wellington watch. Years later, and it's safe to say a lot has changed - although a few things still remain: that not-so-new-anymore boyfriend that still shoots all of my outfit photos, and of course, my taste in watches. And so it's actually incredibly special for me to be able to share with you the brand new addition to the Daniel Wellington range (and my personal favourite) the Classic Petite - the brand's first 32mm watch with a mesh strap, and my new every day accessory.
As with all Daniel Wellington watches, the Classic Petite is customizable, and is available in a rose gold or silver mesh strap with either a white or black dial. I feel like as I've grown older I've really learnt to appreciate the beauty of a good time-teller. I've never been the sort of girl to stack bracelets, or layer up necklaces - I much prefer the practical over the pretty. But it's even more special when those two qualities combine to create a piece like the Classic Petit (even more so again when it's light on the purse strings). It's the finishing touch to every outfit - almost like that final mist of perfume before leaving the house. I slip it onto my wrist and my every day outfit feels complete, and I put together. There are very few loves like that that have lasted in my life, but as I said, a certain two still remain.
And so with that little love story of mine, I'm delighted to announce that I've been given a personal discount code 'COCOCHIC' to share with you all, giving you 15% off of everything on the Daniel Wellington website (including the new Classic Petite style!) as well as free worldwide shipping, right up until the 15th of May 2017. Because whilst money may not be able to buy you love in the form of a patient photographer boyfriend, it can buy you one of the new Classic Petites. Which by the way, won't leave it's laundry lying around all over the place.
