I can’t believe Mother’s Day is this sunday! This year is going by SO fast and I don’t know about you but I need me a stylish watch to help me keep track of my time! Sure my cell phone will do the trick but it’s not going to look pretty with my bangles or new mani. All moms are busy and have to keep track of time for just about everything, like picking up the kids from school, doctor appointments or meetings which means that no matter what a stylish watch helps keep track of your fabulously busy life. One of my favorite brand of watches, Timex, is giving one lucky stylish mama a must-have watch for all year round: the gold multifunction watch worth $85. It’s got that boyfriend watch look that’s perfect to dress up and accessorize or wear alone for a more casual look.
How to Enter:
A boyfriend watch is a fashionista must-have accessory and is seen on celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. Timex has the look for only $85!

While I tend to shy away from bright, bold colors and gravitate towards gray, black or beige, this season I’m totally smitten with all things bright (picture a modern, more sophisticated spin on the 80′s neon trend). Best of all I’m lovin how easy it is to incorporate “happy colors” into any outfit, on any occasion, via accessories, scarves and even shoes. Tip: keep the outfit simple and let the color do all the work. Same goes for accessories – for a more reserved take on the trend, pair it with basics like a blazer or favorite jeans. Check out some of my favorite bright picks for this season from Lulu’s and how you can win a $200 Lulu’s gift card to get your brights!

This week’s spotlight shines on indie designer Mary Jo, who has a wonderfully electic shop on Etsy called Mercurios. Mary Jo’s style is best described as modern and raw (she doesn’t use molds or patterns — everything is free-hand). For the contest, she has graciously donated a stunning Copper Wide Band Corset Ring (description below) I imeediately envisioned myself wearing this bold, goth-like statement piece with a pair of jeans! And, for those of you looking for a metaphysical connection, you’ll be happy to know that copper offers many new age advantages: copper influences the flow of blood and provides strong energy to the body and brain. It also heals the metabolism and helps to relieve exhaustion and sexual instability (nice!).
The contest will run from Monday, June 15 to Friday, June 19. The winner will be selected on Saturday, June 20.
How to Play: Go to Mercurios and pick your favorite accessory. Return to Fashiongrail and leave a comment to the following question: “What would you wear it with?” The most creative answer will win! Have fun and good luck!
