When I was in middle school, digital watches were becoming the “in” things. Keep in mind, these were the days *slightly* before everyone had a cellphone on them 24/7. I wasn’t a huge watch girl myself. I actually wore it on my right hand instead of my left, much the chagrin of my family. Once the digital watch-craze was over I moved on to other ways to accessorize my wrists (enter cute hair ties). I still love accessories. I am currently having a big moment with chunky statement earrings. Recently, I stumbled across a JORD watch + found a new love for the accessory.
As I mentioned, I wasn’t huge on the digital watch craze. I have always had fairly small wrists so watches + bracelets have never quite fit + tended to fall off + bang on desks + other hard surfaces. Now that I am a semi-functioning adult, I am able to splurge on things. Spending a little more on a watch than I would at Target, allows me to buy products from companies like JORD who design with me in mind. Instead of a standard small, medium, and large size range, JORD considers the actual size of my list based on measurements. This ensures that the bands fit perfectly.
My JORD Watch
While JORD specializes in gorgeous wood watches, I think we all know that isn’t really my style. I’m a leather band kind of girl… or so I thought. My love of sleek design lead me to choose their Sier Arcadia in rose gold + white marble – can you imagine a more perfect watch for me? They have several different metal + face finishes, but I was sold at rose gold. The design is simple + elegant without seeming matronly or old. This collaboration is a great addition to my daily wardrobe.
Honestly, wearing a watch every day makes me feel a little more polished + grown up. It’s not about always knowing the time, it’s about the sense of togetherness this piece of jewelry presents to the world. It doesn’t hurt that it is pretty. Or that it comes with two bands allowing it to match almost every outfit I put together. While the leather band was what attracted me to the watch, I have actually been wearing the mesh rose gold band much more. Something about all the shine on the watch face + band make me feel just a tad bit fancy. I’ll be sharing styling tips over on Instagram soon, so be sure to follow!
