A Timeless Piece: JORD Wood Watches

Hi, my loves!

I hope you all had a magical time celebrating the holidays! I had such a lovely and relaxing Christmas. I think one of  the best parts of the holidays is seeing the reactions when you give your loved ones the gifts you picked out for them. I was able to partner with my friends at JORD to share their unique watches with you! The Hyde Series Ebony & Iron Wood Watch from JORD quickly became one of my favorite gifts under the Christmas tree to give to my boyfriend, Nick. He absolutely loved it!

I find this watch so perfect because it’s so simple, but in such a sophisticated way. Nick had been asking for a watch for a while, but I could never find the perfect one. I knew he wanted something sleek, classy, and minimalistic. I found this one from the men’s line as I was scrolling through all of the amazing options at JORD after they reached out to me and I knew he had to have it.

All of JORD’s watches are made from natural wood, which is so neat because it means that no two pieces are exactly the same. The watches are light on the wrist but still so durable, which is perfect if you’re someone who is always on the go. Their pieces are truly timeless. They’re modern but also classic at the same time. Nick immediately looked more professional when he placed this classy accessory on his wrist.

The watches arrive in a sturdy wooden box packed with a cleaning cloth, polish, and a pillow for the watch. How nice is that!?

Giving a JORD watch as a gift was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! With all of their sleek designs, JORD makes watches effortlessly cool. Technically, this is a men’s watch, but I love the way it looks on my wrist, too! It really is such a versatile piece and can add to any outfit. I know Nick will be relying on this watch throughout next semester, so I think I’m going to have to get a JORD watch of my own from their women’s line instead of stealing his.

Christmas might be over, but there are so many holidays and events where a JORD watch would make the perfect gift for your loved one (or for yourself)! They also provide free shipping worldwide.

Overall, I can’t say enough good things about this watch or the brand. They were so kind to me and their products are absolutely stunning! Be sure to check out the website to explore all of their watches. I know Nick will be wearing this for years to come, and that makes me so incredibly happy!

Yours truly,

Katie

I’m back again with another favorite item in my closet: my oversized denim jacket. We’ve been seeing this trend for a few months now, but I find myself reaching for it even more since the weather is a little less brutal. I also find myself wondering how I went so long without an oversized denim jacket in my closet!? I’ve always had my fitted one, which is great for certain outfits, but this oversized one works for almost everything.

My Go-To Fashion Pieces

Katie-2

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving break! Can you believe it’s almost December!? I sure can’t. It doesn’t help that I’m still able to wear a sleeveless top with this weather! However, I just returned from my Thanksgiving trip where I traveled to Virginia and Pittsburgh. Let me tell you, I’ve never been so happy to come back to my warm state! I don’t know how I’ll survive if I end up living up north at some point in my life.

Anyway, these photos were taken a few months back, but I’m STILL reaching for three of these items constantly, so I wanted to share them with you. They have become huge staples in my closet, so continue reading if you want to see how I style my baker boy hat, mom jeans, and my backless mule loafers.

5 Ways to Get in the Mood for Fall

For many, changing leaves and comfy sweaters help create a fall mood. However, we Floridians don’t have that luxury. I think I would suffocate if I stepped outside in a comfy sweater in this 80 degree weather. But that doesn’t mean I’m not doing everything I can give myself that giddy autumnal feeling. So, I decided to share 5 ways to get in the mood for fall!

TREND OBSESSION: Denim on Denim

Hi, everyone! It’s definitely been waaay too long since I’ve written a blog post. Between starting my senior of college, working constantly, and moving into a new apartment, my schedule has been so busy. However, it’s officially a new year for me, so things are about to change. That’s right, I’m now 22 years old (insert obligatory Taylor Swift lyrics here). I’ve decided that I’m going to spend this year really focusing on the things I care about and want to pursue career-wise. That means this blog and my YouTube channel. So stayed tuned! I have some really exciting projects lined up. Let’s dive right in!

Summer Travels: Exploring Boston

How is it already August!? I feel like summer has gone by so quickly! (That could also be because I recently got promoted and I’ve been spending almost all of my time at work.) I’m sad to see summer coming to an end, but I’m so happy I was able to squeeze in a few trips. The most recent being my vacation to Boston and Nantucket. My sister, Emily, goes to grad school in Boston, so my dad and I decided to go visit her for a few days. After that, all three of us continued the vacation on the island of Nantucket. I had never been to Boston or Cape Cod, so I was extremely eager to see the cities.
