How has your summer been going so far? Over here it’s been a hot one but finding ways to cool down has been easy – drinking lots of cold water, going to the beach, and treating myself every now and then to some ice cream have definitely been the best ways! It can sometimes be hard to accessorize in hot weather since the feeling of something sticking on to you isn’t the best feeling, but the newest piece to join my accessory collection just might have been one of the best solutions.
A few weeks back JORD contacted me to review one of their wood watches. Out of all their unique designs their Ely watch in Natural Green & Maple stood out to me the most. I have to admit, the colour in person was a bit off-putting from what was displayed on their website, but after awhile the wood pattern did start to grow on me. It is darker in person making it a tad more masculine in my opinion – which I thought would be difficult to match with my wardrobe but it hasn’t at all. I now feel that it adds just a bit of edge to my look even when I’m wearing something more feminine such as a maxi dress.
The Ely JORD wood watch especially has been the best for the summer heat since it’s made of real wood so it has never been an issue with sticking to my skin. I really love the clean design and the fact that I’ve gotten a lot of compliments from both men and woman on it already says a lot! It also gets major points for being super lightweight to wear so it never gets to the point where I can’t wait to take it off at the end of the day. I don’t wear a lot of jewelry or accessories to begin with so the fact that this is a minimal yet stated piece does fit my style taste very well.
