Minimalist Wood Watch & Giveaway


Hello my friends. It's all smiles here on the blog, for today's post features the giveaway I mentioned on Monday with JORD, a maker of wood time pieces that I've admired for years! Perhaps you've seen these watches as well, or maybe even own one yourself. If that's the case, then you know why I'm so excited. However, if you haven't heard of them, you're in for a treat! Either way, I'd love for you to join me for today's wrist candy love, complimented with boho feels for summer - it's truly the perfect minimalist watch.
The Package Arrives
Now let's fast forward to when my anticipated package arrived. I opened the simple box from JORD  and discovered a uniquely beautiful piece of natural art. The Cassia band is made up wood and rose gold metal. The watch face is also rose gold with an elegant Roman dial.  Already my mind envisioned a yet unworn dress hanging in my closet, knowing they would compliment each other perfectly!

Does this happen to you with a fashion piece? Do you find yourself mentally styling it with items in your closet? There comes a time when an accessory is worth an investment and I believe a classic, timeless (excuse the pun) piece brings fresh life to the ordinary. For example a simple pair of jeans, paired with a white tee holds more visual interest with the right accessories! Or in today's case a white, floral print dress is completed with a natural elegance. Side note: I don't love wearing a lot of jewelry in the heat. Therefore, I like my pieces to be simple but elegant or eye catching!


Beautiful Comfort
The watch is more beautiful than I had anticipated and more comfortable than I believed possible for the hot, humid summery days of Florida. Is it the natural wood that allows my wrist to breathe and therefore keep sweat at bay? I honestly don't know, but I've worn it repeatedly and love it more and more. Also, JORD gives detailed instruction on how to properly measure your wrist for a perfect fit.  They also offer custom engravings on the back of their watches (humidor boxes too!), for a sweet personal touch!

    1. Thank you Gina. The sundress was a find that I tried on in the store but didn't like the even the sale price. A few days later I saw it on line for an extra 50% off!! I grabbed it. Then it hung in my closet waiting for the perfect accessory. haha. Well, waiting for the perfect opportunity to wear it!

    1. Me too Kim, which is why I was delighted to have the opportunity. I think it was one of those instances where they ask another blogger if they know someone that's interested. If they ask I'll be sure to pass on your name! :)

  13. Love your sundress with the rustic wood of the watch. Aren't they so nice to wear? Your arm doesn't get all sweaty from metal or plastic. ;-)

    Have a blessed day my friend.

    1. Thank you Paula! The rustic wood suits me for sure. As for the sweat, I couldn't wear my full on medal band watches once I moved to Florida. It felt so hot, heavy and sweaty. That's why I was surprised with how comfortable this wood band was. It's gotta be the wood! lol

  14. This watch style looks fabulous on you, and I'm loving that sundress as well!

    I hope you are having a great week so far!
