Where is the time going? Anyone? I’m not complaining, since the main reason this time of year always seems to fly by so quickly is because there are SO many fun and exciting things going on. The cooler weather means we can get outdoors more. There are all sorts of activities and get togethers happening, and there is so much good food to be had! But seriously, Thanksgiving is THIS WEEK?!
I’m back for another round of What Mama Wore this week because I’ve been having so much fun styling this bump lately. Specifically, I’ve been trying to figure out ways to stretch (pun intended) my own wardrobe where I can to avoid spending a fortune on maternity clothes. I’m still on the lookout for a winter coat when it starts to really cool down, but if NC treats winter like it did fall, I might be able to get away without one. We shall see…
Anyway on to today’s post. I’m calling it “Fall Style Staples” because it really is a timeless look that I think will always be trendy.
Fall Style Staples
I picked up these dark wash skinny jeans from Ross recently and the black sweater is non-maternity and one that’s been in my closet for a while. I really don’t think you can go wrong with a classic black sweater and a good pair of dark wash jeans.
But can we take a minute to talk about the rest of this outfit? These leopard print slippers are by Nine West and I picked them up at at thrift store in Boone a couple of years ago for just $3! I love how they add a little bit of flair to an otherwise basic outfit.
The watch is a new addition to my wardrobe and one that I am really excited about. It’s from JORD Wood Watches and it’s absolutely gorgeous. To be honest, when I was first contacted by JORD, I was a little skeptical. I had seen their watches before and loved the look, but I wasn’t totally sure how I would like them – especially since I spend most of my days chasing my sweet toddler around. They seemed too fancy for me.
Then the strap on my fitness tracker broke just one day before we headed out on vacation and I was more excited than ever to choose a JORD watch for its replacement. I’ve been wearing this watch around daily for the last few weeks and I wanted to share some of the things I really love about it.
There were so many watches in the collection that I loved, but ultimately chose the Frankie 35 in Dark Sandalwood and Mint. The dark wood band is a great compliment to just about everything in my closet and the beautiful mint face provides the perfect pop of color without being overwhelming.
First impressions matter and JORD knocks it out of the park with theirs. My watch shipped quickly and arrived soon on my doorstep after placing my order. When I opened the box, I was already impressed. The attention to detail with these watches extends even to the packaging. Each watch comes in a beautiful wooden box and includes a polishing cloth and wood conditioning pen to help preserve the wooden band. It’s also got additional details to help you care for your watch. The wooden bands are porous, for example, so can get damaged if submerged in water.
What I Love About It
- It is so lightweight and comfortable. I thought that I would notice a bigger difference when wearing my JORD watch as opposed to my fitness tracker. My wrist is also pretty small, so I didn’t want anything that would be overwhelming. I assumed it would be more bulky, but this is simply not the case. The wood is so light, I often don’t even notice it.
- Watches can be ordered to size so it fits right out of the box. Before ordering your JORD watch, you can print a wrist measuring guide, which will help you submit your size right to the order form. This means that when the watch comes in, it’s already been fit to you. (All the extra links and pins will be included in your box.)
- Excellent variety of bands and faces to choose from. I love the dark sandalwood and mint face of my watch – but JORD really had tons of options to choose from. Whether you are looking for men’s or women’s watches, something more bold and bright or subtle and neutral, there is something for you. Even the wooden bands vary so much in color and style.
- The simple to maneuver butterfly clasp closure. Let’s be honest. It can be hard to get those little hooks on watches and bracelets together one handed. JORD watches have a simple to use, but still secure stainless steel butterfly clasp, making the watch easy to put on and off.
