Disclaimer – JORD kindly gifted me this watch to wear, test, and become acquainted with. However, all opinions are my own :)
Check my new watch! A friend of mine has a wood watch that I admire every time she wears it, so when the lovely people at JORD got in touch about reviewing one of their watches, I jumped at the chance! I mean, just look at this beauty…
After a (very) lengthy peruse of their shop, I chose to go with the Ely Series in Natural Green and Maple, and was blown away – not only by how cool the watch itself was, but oh my – the packaging! It comes in it’s own little wooden box, complete with protective cushion, extra links, and a cleaning cloth. It feels very.. thoughtful.. and I like that.
Luckily for me, it arrived just hours before I was due to head to Melbourne for a girls weekend (best time EVER!), which presented the perfect opportunity to test this baby out. Melbourne is freezing at this time of year, so I pared it with jeans, boots and a navy pea coat which worked beautifully. Somehow it kinda added that little bit of natural earthy-ness and warmth (as strange as that may sound).
So fun! Thanks to JORD for letting me test out the Ely – I love it :)
You can find loads of other designs and styles (for both men and women!) over in the JORD shop – the lovely folks there even offer a sizing service so your watch will arrive ready-to-wear.. how cool is that?!
…And because no post is complete without Arlo making an appearance, this is how photoshoots go down in our house these days ;-)
Wooden Watch Men
Hello friends! I hope you had a nice weekend and are ready to take on a new week. How about a little bit of eye candy to start us off?
Isn’t this necklace from not Tuesday gorgeous? Totally loving the mustard and navy paired with the neon string :)
You can grab one for yourself here, or head over to the not Tuesday shop to see the full range.. they’re all so playful!
You’d have to know that anything with “spotty” and “Fossil” in the same sentence would be a winner in my eyes! Yep, I’m in love with this bag.
Isn’t she lovely? AND it even comes in a pale blue and red combination too.. be still my heart.
SO, let’s put it together with an outfit, shall we? I chose to go with a fairly neutral scheme.. I already own a pair of pants in this colour (and adore them) so thought it’d be a good place to start :)
What do you think? What would you wear it with?
Clockwise from top left: Cute Breton Stripe Crew Neck from Maison Scotch, Hepcat Shades from Madewell, Key-per Flap Bag from Fossil, Jiselle Flats by Tony Bianco, Lightweight Pima Cotton Chino from Maison Scotch, Heather Stainless Steel Watch from Fossil.
Can you believe we’ll be seeing in a new year in just a few days? It’s time to get your party shoes on and let a little glitter into your life! I say that and then will probably be in bed by 10 that night haha. I’m big into Christmas, not so much into New Year.. so, let’s remedy that shall we?
How about some bright, warm colours, hints of gold, and some glitter.. oh, and confetti of course! I even added a gorgeous plum jacket for those of you celebrating in the northern hemisphere ;)
Clockwise from top: Tassel Garland Peach/Pink from Confetti System, Giant balloons from Geronimo, Bow Coat in Cabernet from JCrew, Confetti Peach/Pink from Confetti System, Rosy-Cheeked Coupes from BHLDN, Sequined Jacquard Dress from Anthropologie, Crystal Starlet Earrings from JCrew.
As per my last watch+ post, here’s some more wrist-candy for you guys. Yep, wrist-candy. I just made that up.
I’m completely taken with that black Marc Jacobs. Also still completely taken with Maison Scotch. I think I need to talk to someone about getting Scotch and Soda here in Singapore.
