Today I’m super excited to finally be able to announce my partnership with one of my favourite watch brands, Olivia Burton. Throughout this year I’m going to be getting a sneak peek at some of their newest designs, sharing my favourites from their new collection and some of my favourite ways to style them.
If you’re not already familiar with the brand, Olivia Burton have made a name for themselves as one of the prettiest, affordable watch brands out there. Their beautiful, feminine designs and pastel colour combinations making them instantly recognisable. I’m lucky enough to own quite a few of their watches now and they always attract lots of compliments whenever I wear them. This week, I wanted to show you some of my favourite pieces from their Pre-AW17 Collection… and what better place to do this, than when I was away on holiday a couple of weeks ago?! (not trying to show off I promise… you’ll see why it was the perfect place to photograph it below!)
So, the collection this year definitely has an english country garden vibe… there are lots of bees, florals and mixed-metals. Bees are a personal favourite of mine, ‘bee’ having been a childhood nickname of mine… I tend to gravitate towards anything with bees on (and stars… fingers crossed that’s coming soon for the brand?! Who knows!) Anyway… although bees are definitely a signature design for Olivia Burton, but this collection definitely takes this to a new level!
Not only have they got the gorgeous, oversized 3D Bee watch (below) but if big bee’s aren’t your thing, they also have the smaller, more subtle Queen Bee version (also below, my personal favourite!) They’ve also introduced a super-cute ‘Busy Bee’ design which I don’t have that has three loose bees that move across the face of the watch (you can see that here)
And in case the bee watches aren’t enough for you… there’s also the jewellery! Last year Olivia Burton branched out into jewellery for the first time, and this summer the collection has expanded to include some gorgeous pieces in rose-gold plated, gold plated and solid silver. My favourites once again are the bee designs, especially so the 3D Bee open end bangle in rose gold (which makes the perfect partner for my Queen Bee watch!) and the bee ring – which can be worn alone, or stacked with the matching daisy ring as I’ve done below. The rings are one of my most favourite pieces from the new collection (and without a doubt my most worn) and actually the most affordable items at £35 each – they would make a beautiful gift.
These are just a few of my favourite pieces, so I would thoroughly recommend heading over to the Olivia Burton site to check out the rest of the collection, or heading over to their Instagram @OliviaBurtonWatches for some styling inspiration!
