White Haute Watch Find at TJ Maxx

Over the past few weeks, I have noticed an influx of ads pushing varying white haute trends!  I love wearing white, so I always stop and pay attention to these ads.  I have been particularly drawn to the white acrylic glitz watch in the Michael Kors ads and have visited the MK website just to gawk at that watch a couple few times.

Recent Banana Republic, Michael Kors, and Linea Pelle ads

So, check this.  I was strolling through my local TJ Maxx last week, got to the jewelry counter, and spotted five different white acrylic MK watches at almost half off the current retail prices!  I tried on every single one of those watches, but walked away without one because a watch purchase would have pushed me over my May allocation for clothing and accessories.  I itemize every single purchase I make in a spreadsheet (groceries, gas, toiletries,clothing, etc) and assess my actual expenditure against a proposed spending plan each month.

But, guess what?  It is June now!  I have been thinking about those watches since spotting them last week.  I even called TJ Maxx on Tuesday to find out if they were still there and they were.  So, I bought one.  My watch has the white resin bracelet with pave set Swarovski crystals in gold.  This watch retails for $225, but had a TJ Maxx price of $129.99.  The other available styles at the Maxx ranged from $99.99 to $199.99.

Here is a white haute summer look inspired by the new watch.

    Right @Kimberly!! I am still excited over this find.

    Congratulations @Anonymous! I always have to worry about watches irritating my skin too and the resin bracelet has not been a prob.

    @20 York Street: Yes, yes, the combination is just fabulous this summer!
