I feel like I see people wearing watches less and less these days, mainly because they have been replaced with smart phones, glued to everyone’s hand. I think it’s a shame. I love watches and have a wide variety: silver, gold, leather, and now WOOD. When JORD reached out to me for a collaboration right before I left for Bora Bora, I thought ”now this would be perfect to style with resort wear”. The watch arrived in a dark wood box and was engraved with the words “Eat Well, Dress Well, Travel Often”… my mantra, you might say.
I typically see these watches styled in a more classic, preppy kind of way. But I took a different route. I chose the Olive and Aegean watch (a light olive wood with a deep blue face) and layered it with gold bracelets. I styled it with several outfits including linen dresses and a blue and white jumpsuit, shown here. This watch is very lightweight and can be dressed up or down, worn alone or layered with other jewelry. I have received SO many compliments on this watch. They make a wide variety of sizes, colors, styles, many for men and women that can be worn interchangeably. JORD also offers free worldwide shipping and the watch comes sized for your wrist perfectly. I believe this would make a unique gift due to their engraving capabilities (the face is large and can fit quite a bit of text), as well as a great addition to your wardrobe.

Wood grain watches have been fashionable for several years. 2 years ago I bought Pete and Michael Original Grain Whiskey Barrel limited edition watches. They tend to feel a bit big and bulky on the wrist but are beautiful and always invoke conversation from others when they see them on the wrist.
That sounds cool. Do they drink whiskey?
I love this post, the watch and the jumpsuit!! I have a woodgrain watch I keep forgetting to wear. Really love the Jord styles.
Thanks, Shannon! You should wear it!
