Logging into my blogger account to write up this post was really surreal - most likely because I haven't even so much as looked at this space of mine in months...and for that I sincerely apologise.
Amidst my voluntary teaching English at a summer camp in Italy (which you would probably know if you've been following my Instagram - @infamoushearts), traveling and internships...time slipped away. As a result, this post is horrendously wayyyy overdue...considering I took these pictures way before the summer holidays! But since I was gifted a gorgeous watch to showcase and because the lovely boyfriend of mine took these pictures, I couldn't let it sit there in my archives of forgotten pictures.
As you all know, accessories can elevate one's style and bring a whole new twist to an outfit. So when JORD Watches reached out and offered me one of the watches in their collection, I was intrigued. Why? Because each and every one of their watches are beautifully handcrafted by wood. As a result, no two watch is the same; and that's the beauty of it. After looking through their vast collection, I finally decided upon the Ely design in Natural Green and Maple as the face meant that it was perfect for my smaller than average wrist. No one likes to look like they're wearing some kind of spy device, do they.
I will admit that when I first received the watch, I wasn't sure how to style it. I mean, it is a wooden watch. But I didn't have to worry because my foolproof stripes and denim combination has never failed me yet.
Understandably, the prices of these watches are a tad steep, with mine coming in at US$129. But I can ensure you that you do get what you pay for! Packaged in a luxurious box, the watch is shock resistant and highly durable. My watch came delivered wrapped in bubble wrap and packaged in a luxurious box. What's more, you don't have to worry about the watch strap not fitting properly because even after writing down your wrist measurements, a couple of extra links are also included so you can extend or shorten the strap as you please.
So if you want a bit of nature on your wrist or if you're out of those that likes to embrace the outdoors, JORD Watches should be on the top of your list. I have my eye on their Cora range next - especially the one in Maple and Silver! Bonus: They offer free shipping worldwide!
