Anyone who knows me well knows I love fashion and namely, fashion accessories! I even have a fun little jewelry side hustle to feed this love and share it with others. 🙂 When I’m heading out and about I always try to put together a cute look, but even on my laziest days I never leave the house without a pair of stud earrings and a watch. <— That naked feeling is real!! And I feel particularly out of sorts if I’m not wearing a watch. Lately I’ve been seeing these cute wood watches by JORD popping up all over Instagram and I’ve been intrigued! So chic and different than what I’ve worn in the past. So I was super excited when JORD recently contacted me to try out a watch of my choice and share on my blog! They read my mind!!! And after a week of wearing my new watch I gotta tell you ladies: you need this unique women’s watch on your arm!
I chose the CASSIA in Olive & Aegean Blue because I loved the larger face with the thinner wooden strap, and I thought the domed sapphire crystal glass was an interesting look. The Citizen movement watch made of natural olive wood is hand finished, pre-treated with tung oils. It comes in a really nice wooden box with a cloth and finishing oil to treat your watch prior to wear and over time.
The watch comes with additional links for sizing up if need be or you can have links removed at any jewelry counter. My husband removed a link from my watch just using tools at home! Super easy and the fit is perfect!
I love that it’s a light neutral color because it sort of matches my skin tone and looks good with everything! And being a jewelry lover I have fun dressing up my watch arm by throwing on a few bracelets for a fun little “arm party!!” Sometimes it’s a watch and beaded bracelets day, or a watch and dainty bangle day. This CASSIA watch is definitely cute enough to wear on it’s own, but playing around with accessorizing is my jam!
A personalized watch just in time for Valentine’s Day!
JORD also has a handsome line of masculine and unique men’s watches. And what’s fun is these are personalized watches for him or her, so they make great gift ideas, especially with Valentine’s Day coming up! I actually think it would be kinda cute to get matching his and her watches with a special engraving that is sentimental on the inside of the watch. How thoughtful is that?! Makes gift giving more fun…one for you, and one for me!
At the time that I chose my watch I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted my engraving to be. Being the New Year and feeling like I’m full of ideas on how to make 2018 My Year I decided to go with a simple motivational message to myself: You’ve Got This! Perhaps it’s a little cheesy but I’ll see it every time I put my watch on and it’ll remind me to stay focused on my goals. 🙂
Style over smart watches
I look at watches as another opportunity to express a little personal style. The one watch type that I have never gotten into is wearing a smart watch. I’m already way more connected than I should be just by carrying around my iPhone. I don’t need to be strapped to it buzzing and dinging at me all day long with notifications. I literally feel pride if I’ve come home and leave my phone in my purse for like 45 minutes while I’m doing stuff around the house. Ahh… freedom! It’s in those brief moments that I pat myself on the back for not being addicted to my device, LOL!
