Wooden Watches for Spring [The New Unique Watch Style]

A watch is the ultimate classic accessory. Watches will never go out of style and will always bring even the simplest outfit together, no matter what season. Even though watches are classic, I like to always update my collection with new unique watches. I like a minimalist feel with an unexpected and unique touch to my watches. I wear a watch every day and it’s the cherry on top of every outfit, no matter how trendy or casual the look.

Wooden Watches: the new classic accessory

Ever since I started my “collection” of watches, I’ve always looked for new ones to add to it to give my collection an updated feel every once in a while. My collection ranges in sizes, or from a leather strap or metal, but one style I’ve never had are wooden watches. When JORD approached me to collab with them, I loved the idea of trying out a watch style that I’ve never had before. I never thought a watch could be made of wood or how that would look, but JORD has done an amazing job at creating this modern, yet still classic, style of women’s watches, don’t worry they also make awesome men’s watches as well. The wood finish, while being unique, is very minimal and sleek. I especially love the Frankie watch I picked out because I loved the oversized masculine feel it gives along with the color combo. The rich emerald face gives this watch a super luxe feel while the dark sandalwood adds a more casual look.

Watches: The Ultimate Personalized Gift

My husband and I both love collecting watches, and each of our watches have their own story and they are all so special to use. Since we started dating we have exchanged watches as gifts for birthdays, Christmas, and anniversaries. Watches are such an easy and classic gift no one would want to pass up. They are also a very personalized and thoughtful gift to give because it shows the person receiving the watch that you took the time to think of a style that they would love.

For me and Mason’s first Christmas I bought him a watch and got it engraved with his initials. Every time he puts it on, he glances at it and thinks of the sweet personalized touch and thought that was put into the gift. I love that JORD offers engraving on their watches because it makes it so convenient to have the engraving already done when the watch arrives. Engraving just gives that simple added touch and makes the gift even more special and memorable. With JORD, not only can you personalize with engraving on the watch but you can also add a special note to the cedar box the beautiful watch arrives in. You could add their favorite song lyrics, and special date (like an anniversary), or just a thoughtful saying. fullsizeoutput_74a4

We all know a crisp white blouse is a staple item. I love this effortless, tie-waist version of the white blouse.

A white blouse and denim jeans is a go-to outfit formula for many. Again, I wanted an updated, warm-weather approved version of that formula so opted for this fringe denim mini. The more fringe, the merrier!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love when a dress has a personality. While shooting this dress, it kind of had a mind of its own, and I just went with it.

I love the super flowiness of the dress and the double slit action! I also love the robe feel of the dress. Getting dressed is fun and easy when you feel like you’re wearing your pajamas, am I right?

Have a wonderful day everyone!

I’m here finally blogging this sleeveless knit sweater! It’s such a classic piece and it’s a great piece to layer with. I love it layered over a turtleneck and with dress pants for a sleek and sophisticated look, or worn under a blazer with jeans and slip on sneakers for a casual look.

I’ve been kind of loving blush pink lately. I’ve almost ruled it as a new neutral. It’s a great color to brighten up a look.

I didn’t want the look to be too girly with the pink blazer, so I made the look edgy with the black denim mini and ankle boots.

I particularly love this blazer because it’s a light knit, so it can be an easy layering piece now in the winter, but it’s also easily transitional for the spring.
