Holiday Wear + La Mer Collections Giveaway (CLOSED)

{J.Crew Factory plaid button up (old), SheInside coat c/o, Asos sweater + skirt (old), H&M leggings, J.Crew Everly pumps, vintage Coach shoulder bag worn as a clutch (updated version), La Mer Black Magic Chain wrap watch c/o}

I’m not one to dress up for the holiday season, but I do love the way a pop of metallic or plaid adds a festive touch. This gold skirt was totally bought out of impulse last year, but I’m so glad I did because it’s proven to be such a versatile piece in my closet. The color isn’t too bright, but has enough shine and the fit is amazing!

In other news, how pretty is this wrap watch from La Mer Collections? I initially fell in love with the wrap style when I saw Nancy from Adore to Adorn wear her leopard Target x La Mer version here. The wrapped straps are edgy (which I always love), and the layered jewels make it super unique and fun. This black and gold Black Magic Chain Watch I’m wearing is such a classic, but perfect for the holidays too! The gold tones really pop on the black straps making it easy to dress up or down.

With that being said, La Mer Collections wants to give you a chance to win the Black Magic Chain Watch for yourself! Simply leave a comment below stating how you would style it along with your email address. For a second entry, share the giveaway on Twitter tagging @lamerwatches & @CrystalinMarie and leave a second comment with your Twitter handle!

The giveaway is open to US residents only. The giveaway will run from now until Sunday December 22nd at 11:59pm PST. I will select a winner via and will announce it on Monday December 23rd.

Good Luck!

The winner is Lorraine Ferguson. Congratulations!

    i would absolutely die to win this watch – i’ve been lusting after la mer watches for so long but haven’t been able to pin down the one i want. this one is perfect! neutral and classy with a LITTLE bit of edge. i would definitely wear it with a plaid button down under a grey sweater, some black skinnies (maybe faux leather), and high top, heeled combat boots. classy with just a bit of edge, just like the watch!

    Oh hey, thanks for the shout-out!! I’m SO flattered. hehe.
    I saw your watch on IG and loved the black and gold together (of course!). I love how you styled it with this look. So festive but still sophisticated so it looks timeless.
    What a great giveaway! I’m kinda obsessed with La Mer because of the way you can turn your wrist into instant arm candy haha. But, of course, the difference between the Target collab vs. their regular collection is obvious. =)

    I would constantly wear it with everything. I’ve been wanting (needing?) a watch (because it’s usually not easy to look at my phone for the time nor am I normally around clocks) but I’m overwhelmed by all of the options in the marketplace.

    I would style the La Mer watch with medium wash boyfriend jeans that are rolled at the ankle. I would wear a black sweater with the jeans to keep the outfit simple, but chic. I would finish the ensemble with a pair of cute leather booties and a pair of stud earrings.

    That watch is killer! I don’t have a leather banded watch yet and I’ve been searching for a good staple piece!

    I just got some amazing distressed jeans with these amazing black leather booties….. Add a slouchy cream sweater and a gray beanie. That would be my go to winter, comfy outfit!

    The question is-what wouldn’t I wear it with? I could rock it during the day with a sleek pair of jeans, button-up cuffs rolled just so you catch a glimpse. On a date with the hubby I would wear it with tough black skinnies and an understated top, so it could complement and play off of my other gold accessories. On Sunday it would complement my favorite black 3/4 sleeve black wrap dress.
