In the Details: JORD Wood Watch

A Pretty Penny - JORD Ely Wood Watch
{ JORD Ely Series Maple Watch (c/o)}

As I get older and my style gets less fussy, I’m really into the idea of investment statement pieces that get a lot of everyday mileage: a great leather handbag, simple stud earrings, delicate gold necklaces; little details that speak to your style and live with you for years.

Like a really good watch.

JORD contacted me recently about their line of eco-friendly wood watches and kindly offered to send one. I thought the maple Ely series would be a good fit for me: the compact design wouldn’t overpower my wrist, the neutral color would go with just about everything, and the scratch-proof face just might survive the flower shop.

When the watch arrived a few days later, it was love at first sight. It’s incredibly lightweight, making it super comfortable for everyday wear, and the maple finish is really beautiful. It’s a modern take on a classic style, and I’ve worn it every day since.

    Oh this is such a nice watch. I have the same mindset when it comes to accessories…I’d rather buy one that is perfect and lasts forever. I especially love wood because of how it feels on the skin. It’s not cold like metal.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Investing in good quality pieces is totally worth saving up for instead of spending all of your money on things a month or so out will fade, tear, wear out. I took have learned this and now appreciate quality over quantity.
