Jord Watches - Back To Nature

Hi Everone!
Feeling a little cooler?
I'm in Essex again this week visiting the family. I have brought my new Jord Watch to show you and take some photos in the country park. Have you heard of Jord watches? I have seen many different styles on my blogger friends and was delighted when they contacted me to choose one.


This time last year I hadn't worn a watch for a good few years. "Why do you need a watch when you have a phone?" was my thoughts. But I actually like wearing them and feel more dressed.
 I sold my last watch to pay for my OH's wedding ring ten years ago. An Omega Diamond and white gold beauty from my first marriage. It was the last thing to go that I had left. I had money back then! Do I miss it? No!



I chose this dress to show off the watch. Just as I was getting ready I realised that I had left the belt at home! I had to do some last minute thinking!



And typically it's windy again! 


The dress is by Kapula. I found it in T K Maxx. I love finding a bargain in there! I like the natural colours and the overlay at the top. A bit like a raincoat style.


Mother didn't have a belt for me to borrow, so I used one of her many long necklaces to use as a belt. I was quite pleased with the outcome. I love the watch. The strap and case are all made from wood. 


I finished the look off with my brown bag and cream heels. I'm glad the belt situation worked out! Nothing worse than a wardrobe malfunction when you're away! Have you had any experiences like that? do tell!


The watch that I chose is called "Frankie" Zebra wood with a champagne dial. There are lots of different wood stains to choose from and I have a link here where you can receive a whopping $100 towards a Jord watch. And all other entrants can receive a $25 code. The link is here Do have a nose, great for presents or treat yourself, and they are available for men too.






These are all my favourite colours. Browns, creams, and gold. The watch is going to work well into my wardrobe I think it will look great with Denim.


I will be swapping my heels for flip flops any minute now! I have the mother, grandchildren and of course my ever patient OH  who is taking my photos today waiting to take a stroll around this park! 
Have a great week everyone!
XO Laurie

  7. So clever, following the jord through to the dress tones, your Bro will be proud of you! What workmanship and what variety on website. The watches seem to have really taken off in the States. Still loving those shoes. And your hair still looks fabulous on a windy day - how do you do that?!

    1. Thank you so much Mary! I hate my hair in the wind. It drives me mad! Starting to recede a bit now! (sounding old ) A few people have asked how I do my hair. I can feel a tutorial coming on! You would be surprised how quick and easy it is xx

  12. I love the way you styled this watch, and the watch itself is very unique. I love that it is made of wood. I use a watch whenever I go to work. It looks much more professional in a courtroom to look at my wrist than my phone. I agree that your watch will also pair really well with denim!

  16. Laurie, I am loving this style on you! The browns are so pretty. And that is great watch you chose! I love my Jord watch, too, and wear it almost every day...and I hadn't worn a watch for years either. But I love how lightweight they are! Thanks for linking up with me.

  24. You look absolutely gorgeous, Laurie! That dress is so different, I love it! And using the necklace as a belt is genius - I actually think I'd prefer that to an actual belt! I love Jord watches. I've seen a few bloggers wearing them and think they're beautiful. There's something about wood, isn't there?

  27. Laurie, like you I haven't worn a watch for years, since I finished working full time in fact. I have seen a few reviews for Jord watches and have always been a bit sceptical of the wood finish but it does look quite resilient and it goes perfectly with your outfit. You look fab as always. Thanks for sharing. #TweensTeensBeyond

  28. Lovely look, Laurie! Fun seeing how you styled your Jord watch and which one you chose. They have contacted me as well, and though I don't usually promote a product, their watches just look so unique and beautiful that I agreed. I won't tell you which one I chose (they send 1 of my 3 choices) but I'm hoping the watch looks as good in person as it does on their website. Stay tuned for my review :)

    Have a great weekend!

  37. What a lovely dress you are wearing here, and I definitely covet the little bag! I've always worn watches and feel "naked" without them, although, thinking about it, I often check my phone when I need to know the time ... Funny that, eh. xxx
