case of the want-itis

So… I’ve got a little case of the Want-itis.
This time I blame it on my husband.  He recently got a new watch, and it got my wheels a turnin’ about how I’d like to have a watch, and then he mentioned getting me a watch for a little push present, which then REALLY inflamed my condition.
I’ve got a couple on my brain, but I can’t make up my mind.  I know I want a beefy, oversized watch.  I just don’t know if I should keep it simple or bring on the bling.  I need your help.
I’m leaning towards the more casual.  Reason being, I’m not all that dressy.  For example, today I wore running pants and a t-shirt.  Ok, maybe that’s because I’m sick and tired of all my maternity clothes and I just didn’t want to mess with it today.  But still.
What do you guys think?  Which watch do you think looks best?

    Must be the pregnancy hormones bc I have been dying for a new watch too! I saw a great inexpensive version on Asos- just trying to figure out how to subtly ask for it for my push present! I love your casual pick!

    I vote casual. You could always dress it up a bit with some flashy bracelets.

    I had never even heard of a "push present" until my husband surprised me with a new watch right before the birth of our first son last year. Turns out, its the same one you're looking at–the casual Michael Kors! I love the white ceramic, and how it goes with almost every outfit in my closet–you can't go wrong with that choice. I've since become a huge fan of all things Michael Kors, and regularly have a case of the want-itis when it comes to his stuff 🙂 Time to have another baby, I guess….!

    Casual. I wondered if you were gettin' your virtual Christmas wish list goin' on Pinterest. :o)

    I adore big, man-sized watches! Love both your picks but I would go for the casual. You could definitely dress it up when you wanted.

    Yep, the casual for sure. Very chic. Add a bracelet with some color or sparkle if you want to dress it up for 'fancy' days!

    I think the "casual" one looks more masculine. I'm a little biased towards sparkle, though.
