Drew Sirtors once said, “watches are so named as a reminder – if you don’t watch carefully what you do with your time it will slip away from you”. My mom has always told me that having a watch is important because you should always know what time it is. I never really thought much of watches because why have a watch to tell time when I have my phone (duh). However, it took me years to finally realize that a watch is not only useful but, a great jewelry piece.
I’ve owned one watch my whole life and prior to this year, I had never really thought about getting another one. Sadly, my watch broke recently and I had to send it back to their factory to get it fixed and I was left WATCHLESS. This was the same time that JORD reached out to me regarding a partnership and the timing could not have been better.
What I love about JORD watches is that it is unique. That’s really the key word here. Everyone around me has the same Michael Kors or Marc Jacobs gold watch. Now, I’m not hating because I myself am one of those people. However, I can guarantee you that I don’t know anyone else who has a handcrafted wood watch. They have such a wide range of watches to choose from and there’s really something for everyone’s taste! There are watches with slightly larger faces and watches (like the one I chose) with a smaller face. There are other types of wood, some lighter and some darker. I chose a watch from the Frankie 35 series in zebrawood and navy. I thought there was something so special about having that subtle pop of color in the face of the watch and the Navy really looks so beautiful against the wood. Navy is also one of my favorite colors and I swear half my wardrobe is navy so I knew it would go well with my outfits.
To start off, the box that the watch came in is almost as beautiful as the watch. I currently have it has a decoration piece in my living room (oops). Secondly, the watch looks amazing on. I was slightly skeptical about whether I’d look good in a wooden watch but it seriously looks great! I got so many compliments from people saying how great the blue looked and they were so surprised by the fact that the watch was made from wood!
I think the darker tones of this watch is especially perfect for the colder months because I don’t know about you guys but whenever the temperature starts dropping, so does the color in my wardrobe. I stick mainly to blacks, blues and greys during winter.
I put together this super simple fall-friendly outfit that’s great for the days when it’s not too cold out! You guys have seen me talking about this skirt forever but you can’t go wrong with suede this time of year! I paired it with a NAVY sweater that perfectly coordinated with my watch. The watch really ties the whole look together especially under the right light, you can see how much the blue really shines through.
With the holiday season coming up, I know I always struggle to figure out what to get for family and friends (or even for myself…because let’s be honest, TREAT YO SELF). I’m so happy to be providing you guys with an instant 25% off coupon code if you want to purchase one! I know I’m going to be buying one for my mom because once she spotted my Jord, she almost took it from me! I’m thankful that we don’t have the same wrist size because I would have never seen it again!
