Living in Chicago there are plenty of accessories in my wardrobe that are seasonal. For example, I can only spend a quarter of the year rocking a straw bag. Half the year is spent bundled in blanket scarves, and another showing off a great pedicure in adorable sandals. Living in the midwest means experiencing all the weather changes, but that also means investing in pieces that you can only wear for a fraction of the year *sigh*. This rule, however, doesn’t apply to a watch. Just here for the giveaway? Scroll to the bottom!
As I’m sure you know, a watch is an evergreen accessory. Sure I change my watch with my outfit, but you can definitely wear the same one all year round if your heart desires. Jord was nice enough to send me their Cassia watch which is made of ebony wood. I especially liked this style because it’s a lot sleeker than other wood watches I’ve seen. It doesn’t hurt that the craftsmanship and quality of Jord watches is impeccable. Definitely a staple worth investing in.
For this look I decided to fully embrace the bumble bee/Arthur the Aardvark style. The way to survive this season of the year? Layers. And lots of them. I very recently got in to the oxford as a layering piece and I’m here. for. it. I usually think of myself as more of a boho/hipster babe, so I didn’t know exactly how a timeless piece like an oxford would work in to my personal style.
Alright, let’s get back to the timepiece for a minute. Gifting season is upon us and everyone and their mother could use a watch. If your hesitant about the comfort of a wooden watch, don’t be. Jord sizes your watch before sending, so it’ll fit perfectly. Be sure to take a look at their new designs. Want to test your luck? Enter to win a $100 Jord gift card towards a watch of your own HERE.
