January is the best time to make some changes whether it be to our health, lifestyle, mindset, or even personal style. So that's why when Jord reached out to me to partner with them for this campaign, I couldn't say no! Jord is a company that makes unique watches for men and women out of wood. They claim that they are focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle and that they value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. I love ALL of that!
I chose the Frankie in zebrawood and navy (quite the upgrade from my winnie the pooh watch I rocked back in 2002). Although this particular style has a large face, most likely too large for my teeny wrist, I thought the colors would pair well with most of my wardrobe while still having a unique, eye-catching design.
The packaging is incredible. The watch came in a beautiful wooden box and included a cleaning cloth, an oil pen (for protecting the wood), and some extensions in case it was too small. I was blown away by the quality and presentation. Unfortunately, my watch was way too big length wise because I had no idea how to measure my wrist for the best fit. I plan to get it resized so that I can wear it without it sliding up and down my forearm but for now I can slide it over top of my sweater sleeve for a more comfortable fit.
The face is also large but I anticipated that. I think it gives off a "menswear" vibe that can easily be feminized by adding silver bangles or a wrap bracelet like I did in these photos. The colors are beautiful and the quality is definitely there. It doesn't feel too light or too heavy on my wrist and overall I really love it.
