If you’ve been following along here on This Time Tomorrow for a while now, you know I love to travel. Since leaving my full-time corporate job a little over a year ago, it’s been a big focus for me. Ah, the beauty of being able to work remotely wherever you please is probably a luxury of this career path that will never get old for me. And I’m so incredibly grateful for it. In fact. every time I pull up to JFK, I have to pinch myself a bit more to make sure I’m not dreaming.

Of course, being up in the air all the time comes with a need to feel grounded every once in a while. I love having little luxuries that remind me of home when I’m away from NYC, including lots of little videos on my phone of Elvis to watch while I’m taxiing on the runway, a few handwritten notes from my guy (we write back and forth to each other when we’re traveling) and a wrist watch. Why a watch? No matter where I am in the world, I will always leave it set to Eastern Standard Time, making it easy to check what time it is back home (and whether or not it’s appropriate to call yet). It’s an easy and simple way of feeling like I’m still connected to loved ones back home, regardless of distance.

That said, I can be very particular about my watches — I need them to feel like an extension of my accessories: clean and elegant, streamlined and not overly fussy. So when I first eyed the new line of Coach Tatum watches for the season, I was immediately smitten with this guy. The overall gunmetal and rosegold finish is just the right balance between masculine and feminine that I love to strike and the mesh band is a much needed break from my traditional leather band watches. I’m already thinking of snagging a few stocking stuffers for the weeks ahead and something tells me this watch will be at the top of my list for a few other traveling ladies in my life.
