Watches have always seemed like such a luxury to me. I’d see someone wearing a beautiful watch and think, one day I’ll have a watch that makes me feel like a million bucks. I recently acquired that unique watch and have been taking it on little adventures with me ever since.
Alex and I attended a wedding over the weekend near Port Huron, MI. It’s his old stomping grounds and I’ve surprisingly never been there except to pass through to Canada. So we took the remainder of our day to try out a famous local chicken joint and have a chai latte at The Raven. It was one of those days where I just felt pretty, you know? And my gorgeous watch might have had something to do with it. As soon as people see it they immediately compliment it. I was probably complimented six times that day, all because of a watch.
When I first heard about JORD watches, I couldn’t believe that they were made of wood. Say what?! Most of the watches I’ve had in the past have been bulky, heavy, and eventually ended up in some drawer ticking away the time to no one. Yet the Fieldcrest watch is so unbelievably light and I felt like I wasn’t even wearing it. Plus the light wood has complimented every single outfit I own; really pulling everything together.
Watches have a way of making me nostalgic to the days without social media and cell phones. Don’t get me wrong, I love the internet probably more than the next person, but whenever I put on this watch I feel like I’m giving a nod of respect to years past.
Do you wear watches? What’s your favorite accessory?
