It’s not very often that I suit up with a #girlboss look here on the blog (though I do run my own business, the dress code around here mostly involves pj’s), but today’s subject matter called for a little more dapper approach (and also I simply couldn’t resist this bubblegum pink suit). Today I’m super excited to talk about a new brand I’m all heart eyes over:  Charles Bow Tie. A playful and quirky watch brand with a love for all things British and adds a little something extra to every watch sold in their collection. PS – and just for my readers, you can enjoy 15% off your total Charles Bowtie purchase with code: SMILEWLAUREN.

Click on the read more button below to find out why myself (and Lucky too!) are loving this bold and colorful brand and get the full scoop on this office chic look featuring the cutest women’s pink suit.

With pop art-inspired watch styles in a rainbow of color options, I instantly loved how fun and playful the brand’s offerings were. So when I received my Newcastle watch (all of the watches references cities in the UK), I was even more delighted to find that my watch included not just an additional strap for extra styling possibilities, but also included a darling matching bow tie. SO clever and such a fun surprise!


I love all of the bright and playful color combinations and patterns offered up in their collection of watches, and the grosgrain strap makes it versatile enough to dress up with  a fancy suit like the pink one I wore in today’s post or pair with a casual jeans and tee look. What I also love about the watch is how easy it is to adjust and change out the straps. I’ve always loved the idea of interchangeable watch straps, but many brand make it so difficult to interchange them that I never end up doing it. I’ve already worn my Newcastle watch with both straps (one is the striped I’m wearing in this post and another is solid bubblegum pink!) multiple times.

I haven’t convinced Cole to wear the bowtie just yet (I think the bowties that come with the Halifax or the Dover might be more his style!) , but it’s been making Lucky look as darling and dapper as ever as you can see in the photo above. With endless color/pattern options and two bonuses with every watch purchase (the extra watch strap AND the bowtie!), Charles Bowtie watches make the perfect gift for the holidays! Shop the whole collection here!

    That’s a lovely outfit! Change the pants to a skirt and you have the style I wear (with different eyewear) Mondays through Thursdays at work. And if I could wear high heels anymore I would be 6’2″ in the ones you have on. 🙂

      Hi Melyssa! That sounds like such an adorable outfit!! If they made the skirt in this color I would absolutely buy it to wear with the suit!! Wow gf – that’s amazing! I’ve always wishing my legs were a bit longer. 😉 Thanks so much for the love!! Have a wonderful week!
