I have a thing for men’s shoes. Let me clarify, it’s not a fetish. I’m not wearing his shoes and hiding in a corner of his closet. That’d be so weird. I only hide in his closet when I need to escape from my children for 5 minutes. I just really appreciate a beautiful a pair of fine Italian leather men’s shoes. I have the same appreciation for men’s watches. A man wearing a fashionable timepiece is so sexy to me. I love all the styles ranging from a sports watch with subdials and a 5-link steel band to the more refined and classic white dial watch with a black or brown leather strap. Swoon.
Even if I wanted to (and again, I don’t) I can’t wear Kerry’s shoes – but I can wear his watches! I actually prefer a larger watch because I think it looks more chic. Depending on what I am wearing, I will let the watch stand alone and take center stage because it makes a bigger statement. Other times, I will add bracelets and layer my wrist with some arm swag.
If you can afford to, it’s nice to be able to change your watch out for others. Kerry asked for an inexpensive sports watch when he was coaching baseball. He didn’t want to have his phone with him, but needed a watch to monitor the time. He also has a few other watches that he wears and he’ll switch them out depending on what he’s doing (office, date night, sports).
Can a Watch Make You Feel Sexy?
| this is the watch I selected, isn’t it gorgeous! |
We both had the good fortune of selecting some timepieces from the Collinsville Watch Company. Based in Connecticut, they opened their doors only last year and have quickly expanded their product offering to include new timepieces and sunglasses. You can read about the passion they have to their timepieces, strong commitment to customer service and charitable giving here. We went online and he picked the Bridge Street Sport with a black dial and I selected the Main Street Rose Gold.
The watches look great on the website, but it is nothing compared to holding one in your hand. True story, the moment I opened the box my first reaction was “How can they offer such a high-quality timepiece at such a reasonable price point?” Needless to say, Kerry and I have been wearing our new watches 24/7. It’s been fun to actually share the same watches and I am mysteriously attracted to wearing something of his. I’m not sure if it is because it is a constant reminder of him or if I feel like I am getting away with something…
