Do you all remember when I stated that Ember Grey would *never be a fashion blog? Mainly because I do most of my clothes shopping at places like Marshall’s and Target and could live in a gray tshirt and jeans forever? And now you’re thinking I’m coming back today saying, *’Never say never!’ and that I’m going to start posting fashion posts now?! Yeah?!
While I still wouldn’t consider myself super fashionable, in the clothing department at least, I do think I have a good eye for accessories, specifically jewelry. So let’s discuss, shall we?
I’d had my eye on the JORD Wood Watches ever since I saw them on my fellow Nashvillian friend Ashley’s blog. I may have even picked a few of them out and casually told Christian that if he ever needed a new gift idea for me, this would be a great one 😉 So when JORD reached out to me and asked if I might be interested in checking them out and introducing them to EG readers, obviously I jumped at the chance 🙂 And guys? I LOVE this watch.
I’ve had this bad boy for a little over 2 1/2 weeks now and I haven’t taken it off, I have seriously worn this thing every day. My jewelry style is pretty simple – I only have a few statement pieces in my jewelry box and they only come out on special occasions. When it comes to watches, I have a silver watch and gold watch and while I love both of them, sometimes I just don’t feel like they fit my more casual style. When I saw the wooden watches from JORD I thought, okay- this is my fix to the gold vs silver debacle. (Because there is nothing worse than a watch debacle, am I right?) I really feel like the one I ended up choosing, the Fieldcrest Zebrawood & Maple, goes with everything. I’ve even worn it with a dressy black dress and it worked perfectly, not taking away from anything. This watch feels very ‘me’ 🙂
If you’re wondering about the black bracelets I’m wearing in most of these photos, they also fall under my all time favorite accessories, but truly because of the story behind them. In the very beginning, after our very first official date, Christian gave me these black plastic bracelets – ones he’d been wearing. He was about to go on tour for a month and asked me to hold onto them for him 😉 I knew it was his way of saying, I’d love to have another date with you when I get back, and of course I put them on and they stayed on my wrist until he got back. (Actually, I never did end up giving them back to him- they can be found on my wrist even these days) 😉
You all should know by now that I can’t tell you about a favorite new thing without giving you SOMETHING (and fortunately the wonderful people at JORD agreed) so here you go, 10% off your JORD watch.
Again, I chose the Fieldcrest Zebrawood & Maple (above) but here are a few of my other faves: Fieldcrest Maple, Cora Koa & Rose Gold. And for the lucky guy in your life, here is my fave: 94A Series Chocolate. If you don’t see anything that really grabs you, JORD will be launching two new women’s watches and two new men’s watches in November, right before Christmas.
So happy shopping, okay?! And hey – when you get your new watch, tag me in the photo – I want to see which one you choose!
