I’m loving the more frequent sunny days lately, and have been slowly pulling all of my spring and summer clothing from the back of my closet and drawers. Each year I get excited to pair some of my old favourites with a few new pieces of warm weather wear for an updated look. And, now that our necks and arms are being bared, it’s the perfect time to accessorize with jewellery and watches!
I first discovered Wood Watches by Jord towards the end of 2014 while browsing online for Christmas gift ideas, and they’ve been on my radar ever since. Because my husband and I will be celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary this summer (traditionally the year to give a gift made of wood), I have been thinking about getting him the Jord Dover Series watch in Zebrawood & Cream!
For myself, I chose the Fieldcrest in Maple. The blond-colored wood gives the bold, chunky watch a summery look, subtle against my pale skin. I find myself gravitating towards greens, marsala, and nude/peachy tones this spring; and the soft, natural look of the maple pairs perfectly with these earthy colors.
I have completely lost track of how many compliments I have received since I started wearing this watch just last week! This timepiece is a knockout on it’s own, but it looks great stacked with bracelets too. So far I’ve paired the watch with silver pieces, and another time with a dark navy. I love that the neutral shade can be worn with both light and fairly dark colors, and I can’t wait to do some more mixing and matching!
Now is a great time to give or get a Jord Wooden Watch. They recently added the optional feature of having sizing done before shipment, so when my watch arrived nestled in its beautiful wooden box, it fit perfectly.
The wood is surprisingly smooth and comfortable to wear, and the metal clasp on the back makes putting the watch on with one hand super simple. I can’t think of one thing that I don’t like about this piece. Before I received the Fieldcrest in Maple I hadn’t worn a watch in quite some time, and was pleasantly surprised by how useful it was to have the time handy without having to dig through my purse and pockets trying to locate my cell phone all the time. I foresee this watch travelling with me every day for a long time to come!
