Every year around this time I fantasize about throwing a sleek and stylish Halloween party. Visions of a long dining table, a low lit space, playful spooky decor and friends decked out and having the time of their lives always flashes in my head.

Naturally, I’ve turned to some spontaneous shopping trips to get my mind off of baby W’s arrival. One of which was a visit to Nordstrom to check out the new collection of Tory Burch watches. Right away I gravitated towards a classic, square shaped face with a simple black band—my sophisticated side coming out. Since I’ve been wearing it my wardrobe has taken a preppy turn.
