“I’m late, I’m late for a very important date. No time to say hello, good-bye. I’m late, I’m late, I’m late!”
- Alice in Wonderland
We’ve all been late at some point in our lives. Whether it’s late to a meeting, late for a date, or late to class – it doesn’t feel good to be the latecomer!
The best way to avoid being late is by keeping track of your time. In our world of technology, this isn’t difficult to do. Think of all the places you can see the time at any given point in your day. The time is displayed on your TV’s cable box, and it may even be displayed on your oven or microwave. Most cars display the time on the radio panel. And, when you’re working, you will most likely be able to see the time on your computer screen. Additionally, as most of us now own cell phones, we often rely on this device to check our time.
But, despite the abundance of time tracking tools, some of us still find ourselves perpetually ten minutes late. So, to keep yourself on schedule, why not wear a watch? If it’s literally attached to your body, you may have a much better chance at noticing the time.
Perhaps because of all our devices, or perhaps because of the perception of watches, they seem to have disappeared from the list of essential accessories. But, for those of us desperate to be on time, they can be quite handy. And, despite the perception that watches are “nerdy,” “clunky,” and “hard to coordinate with” – they can actually be quite fashionable.
Watches are in fact a great jewelry accessory, and at Brazos Collection, we carry a variety of stylish watches. Especially as winter departs, and we’re coming out of our coats and long-sleeved sweaters, watches are a great way to accessorize your newly freed arms and wrists.
