Summer makes me happy. The sun in my face during the day and the patios filled with cheerful customers at night, instantly cheers me up. Whereas, I mostly dress in black and white during winter, I try on as many colors as humanly possible in summer. When I get dressed in summer I always make sure that my outfit can easily transfer from day to nighttime since I love staying outside when the weather’s nice. This all blue outfit has quickly become one of my favorite looks but that’s also due to my classic vintage Chanel bag and my gorgeous new watch
I’m not the kind of person that spends a lot of money on accessories because I always think it’s nice to change them every season.Watches, however, are the exception. A timeless timepiece – yes I’m lame – is worth investing in. I’d been on the prowl for a watch and I had already decided that I wanted something unique when JORD Watches happened to reach out to me. JORD Watches makes extraordinary wood watches. Yes, their watches are made from wood. The watch I chose is from the Ely series and is dark sandalwood. I’ve already received many compliments from both friends and strangers on the street. Needless to say, my friends and family members should expect wood watches for their birthdays from now on.
That’s not even the best part. They source their wood from sustainable sources from all over the world, and a good majority of their wood also comes from re-purposed furniture that would otherwise end up in the waste cycle. Who says you can’t be fashionable and care about the environment too?
The people at JORD have been kind enough to let me host a little giveaway contest. The winner will receive a $75 voucher towards their very own JORD watch. And because in my book everyone is a winner, just for entering the competition you will all receive a $20.00 e-gift card (excluding the winner). The $75 voucher will expire on 8/15/2016, and the $20 e-gift cards will expire 11/15/2016. How can you enter? It’s very easy – just click this link –> JORD Competition.
