Time Out

How was everyone’s weekend?! Mine was super fun, but way too short. I spent Saturday celebrating St. Patricks Day in Chicago and it was a riot LOL! My friends and I hopped all over town and had the best time. Now I’m wishing I had an extra day to do just nothing. But, let’s get to it!

Anyone who knows me knows that I always have my wrists stacked with pretty bracelets and bangles! If I’m not wearing jewelry on my wrists (or ears) I feel super uncomfortable and not like myself.

I’ve always thought about adding watches to my collection, but for some reason never pulled the trigger. When JORD Wood Watches reached out to me, I immediately realized that this would be a unique opportunity – first, not only would I finally be able to try my hand at wearing watches, but I’d get to try a wood watch! Super cool, right? I hadn’t even thought that a watch could be made out of this material!

I loved that I was able to pick a watch that was more tailored to my taste. Emerald is my birthstone and a color that I wear often, so naturally I was drawn to the Dark Sandalwood and Emerald watch. The dark color contrasted with the bright green is so pretty in person, and pairs perfect with most of my outfits! It also matches my emerald Pandora bracelet to a tee! Other awesome features are that the watch is splash proof (don’t put it in water, though), comes with a pretty wooden case and cleaning solution and is very easy to snap on and off. One of my biggest peeves is needing someone to put on/take off a bracelet for me.

If you’re in the market for something that’s unique and will stand out, then I’d definitely recommend checking out their selection… there’s so many different watches to choose from!

    Oh my! Isn’t this one a lovely outfit? That watch, it looks amazing. And it’s made of wood? I love it and so is that cool long-sleeved top.
