- Outfit of the Day ft. Jord Wood Watches...

Top: H&M
Duster Jacket: Matalan*
White Jeans: ASOS
Nude Loafers: Head Over Heels by Dune
Wood Watch: Jord*

I've realised outfit posts in Spring can be slightly tricky. One day I'm in nothing but a shirt dress, the other I'm in need of jeans and a jacket. Despite this, I'm happy we can now put away the heavy Winter coats for good and go sockless (it's the small things in life, right?). I guess you could argue today's outfit is a smarter look; the minimal, monochrome trend is a favourite of mine, and I love the 'sharp but relaxed' vibes we're seeing everywhere at the moment.

Adding to the smartness is this beautiful wood watch from Jord. Watches are funny things, aren't they? I don't know if it's just me but they're not something I usually go specifically shopping for, but when one's in my possession I suddenly feel complete. It's like you don't realise it's missing until you have it (this isn't a trashy rom-com storyline, promise). What I'm trying to say is, I now suffer from the 'naked wrist' if I forget to wear one; they've become a must-have accessory that really add a lot to an overall look in my opinion.

With a main focus on wood and appreciation for natural elements, Jord really have excelled themselves with their collection of modern timepieces. I was very, very kindly sent the Sidney design in Maple & Rose Gold (also available in Cherry & Mother Pearl). What drew me towards this watch was the contemporary maple, as well as the gorgeous rose gold accents. If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know rose gold is up there in my favourites, and this piece certainly doesn't disappoint.

Is it normal to squeal when you open a package? Good, I thought so too. The wood theme is extended even to the packaging which is such a lovely touch and ensures the watch can be stored away safely (for those rare moments it's not on your wrist, that is). Now, when it comes to clasps and locks and buckles and various other fastenings, I'll admit I can have some pretty 'der' moments, so I practically jumped for joy at the ease of this. It literally just springs together, it's like magic, and when you want to unfasten it, you simply just press the side of the clasp et voila!

If you haven't already gathered, I really do love this watch; it's modern, it's classic, it's sleek and it has rose gold. It even arrives with a little polishing cloth and spare links for when my forearms inevitably get hencher from rock climbing (I wish). Also, don't the Swarovski Crystals finish it off perfectly?!

At $199 (around £130), this watch isn't cheap. It is, however, completely worth it in my opinion. I honestly can't fault it in any way and have been nothing but impressed by both the piece itself, and the service from the Jord team. If you're after something a bit different and eye-catching, without being too in-your-face, then this stunning collection of wood watches is totally for you. There are an impressive range of both men's and women's designs available to shop here. Have a look, I dare ya.

  7. Wow. I have to say the watch is so unique and pretty! Really like it, although I think it'd probably be slightly big for my skinny wrist. x

  8. Such a unique watch - certainly not something I have seen before. And for that reason, it's so eye-catching! Plus, it's got a really gorgeous design. Love the outfit too - I'm definitely feeling monochrome at the moment :) x

  19. Karen can I just say I am forever envious of your hair/figure/clothes/everything, you pull this watch off so well! Also sockless weather is a huge deal haha!

    Love these wooden watches, they're so summery and unique, and the packaging they come in is something else (shouldn't really be impressed by a box but here we are) haha - yours looks so lovely!

  31. What a wonderful ootd post Karen! The watch is very nice and I like that it combines natural elements with an on trend classy rose gold coloured face. A bit like a blend of MK goes natural hahaha :) BTW I saw your shoes sold out at ASOS but they still have them directly on the Dune website (reduced from £29 to £23).

  35. This is such a lovely duster jacket, I wish there was a Matawan in Leeds city centre because I never end up going! I have a Jord watch, need to test it out properly! I definitely think it's unique compared to the usual chunky watches tho. You look lovely as usual :)
