I spend a great deal of my time clock watching; when I’m getting my daughter ready for school in the morning I’m frequently checking to see if we’re running late (we usually are). My job requires even more attention to the ticking of the clock – working in TV news means constantly working to deadlines. Wearing a beautiful and unique timepiece brings joy to the everyday routines that make up my day, so when Jord offered me one of their stunning wood watches to review I was delighted.
I’ve been a fan of Jord (pronounced Yoad) wood watches for ages, having seen them on other bloggers. I deliberated over which one to choose because they are all stunning, but eventually I decided on the Frankie 35 Zebrawood and Champagne. The watch has a very elegant gold face and an ultra slim case which feels incredibly comfortable to wear. It’s so light that I hardly notice I’m wearing it; plus, unlike metal straps, it doesn’t feel cold when I first put it on. I gave Jord my wrist measurement and the strap was adjusted prior to dispatch so that it fits perfectly.
Jord has a range of watches in different designs and types of wood for both men and women. They also offer an engraving service – perfect if you’re looking to buy a unique Mother’s Day gift, or maybe a birthday or anniversary present. The watches come in a beautiful wooden presentation box, along with a tube of finishing oil and polishing cloth to condition the wood.
For my outfit I took my cue from the gorgeous watch, which I teamed with a wooden necklace and Winkwood sunglasses. This chambray shirt is the perfect blank canvas to showcase a statement necklace; (I wore it with a feather necklace for the 3040 blogger meet last year). There’s something about a knotted shirt and an A line midi skirt that looks so chic and a little bit retro. I’ve had this bird print skirt for years but I can’t remember ever wearing it before. It was quite breezy when we took these photos so I had to be careful not to have a Marilyn moment!
