Good Morning & Happy Tuesday!
I wanted to start off this post with a confession: I love watches. I don't know what is it about them, but I just love them. I feel like each one is so unique and different that they tell their own story.
Over the past few years, I have amassed a collection; some silver, gold, leather, some that have vibrantly colored faces & some that are truly simple and classic. However, one of my newest additions that has now become a favorite is my newest JORD watch.
I am so excited to announce that I am partnering with JORD Watches! Before I started Southern Tailored, I had seen a couple of bloggers I follow post about this company & I instantly fell in love with their watches. One of my favorite things about them is that they are made out of wood! While a lot of my style is very classic, these watches are made for the modern person & I can't get enough of the different styles. So, when JORD reached out about partnering with me, I immediately jumped at this amazing opportunity.
Before I get into my newest watch addition, I wanted to tell you a little bit about the company. JORD is focused on "creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle." Their companies mantra is being sustainable & not killing our beautiful Earth just to make a profit.
As I have gotten older (granted, I'm only 25, so take that with a grain of salt), I have become more aware that every moment we are given is a precious one and that tomorrow is not guaranteed. When I first learned about JORD, something that stuck out the most to me was the following from their website: "The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time." That really struck me. So much time is spent waiting for what's to come next or the next big thing, but what I, personally, really needed to do was to sit back and enjoy every moment & to live in the present. JORD was part of what helped me to start this transition in my life to being more aware & present, not sitting on my phone the whole time in an attempt to live vicariously through others who seemed to be doing much "cooler" things than me. I wanted to make my time count, and JORD helped me to realize that.
Now, onto the real reason of the post: my newest addition to the watch collection, the Frankie Series Zebrawood & Champagne.
The wood base of the watch has a duel "lock" system making it incredibly easy to fit over your hand and close down on your wrist. I have only had this watch a few days now & I have received so many compliments on it! I wanted to get the champagne face because it has a more classic feel to it, but it will also go with anything and everything as well as any season of the year. In this photo, I styled it with a black dress (black and brown are my favorite combo to wear) and a jean jacket.
The best part about these watches? Ladies.... you'll want to keep reading.....
A lot of these watches are made for men AND women! My fiancé received one of the watches as well, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I would be able to wear his also! He received the Frankie Series Ebony & Gold, and he wears it to his finance job! I mean, how GORGEOUS are these watches?!
There are two main things I want y'all to understand about why I love JORD so much:
1- a lot of them are made for both men and women, so you can wear your boyfriends, fiancés, SO's (or whomever), whenever you wan! There are so many watches out there today that look too masculine for women and some that are too feminine for men! These are the perfect in-between!
2- these watches can be dressed up or down! The casual look of the wood paired with the elegance of the watch face allows you to be able to wear this on any occasion!
Overall, these watches are a great price and I can't wait to share more pictures with y'all of me styling them for different occasions. Be sure to check out my instagram story as well, where I will be keeping you in the loop!
