Styling My New Wood Watch + A Giveaway!
Happy September lovely readers! You know what September means… Fall is h e r e. It still feels like the peak of summer here in the South, but everywhere you look there are pumpkins, plaid, and PSLs poking up one by one. Transitioning into fall can be a less than graceful ordeal. We all know the feeling of waking up, feeling a nice crisp 58 degree morning and throwing on your favorite sweater, (maybe the one that you snagged for 50% off at the end of last season) and by the time your lunch break rolls around its a solid 89 degrees and you’re sweaty and cranky and huffing and puffing to your car. We’ve all been there. The transition can be anything but easy.
I threw a couple of outfits together that are Southern heat index friendly, but give all the edgy fall vibes while we wait for true cozy weather to hit. I am really excited for this post because I’m getting to work with JORD (pronounced Yode), a watch company out of St. Louis, MO that creates stunning wooden watches. I love their classic designs almost as much as their small business vibes and high dollar quality. Because of my personal style involving more neutrals and lots of black, I chose a Frankie Ebony and Gold watch because it instantly matches 75% of my wardrobe. I also love the minimalist style that can be dressed up or down- its just so chic! Bonus: JORD also has a great selection of men’s wooden watches, and I think it would make an incredible Christmas, anniversary, birthday, or wedding day gift for your fella. Men can just be so hard to buy for! They also offer a watch engraving option to make them that much more personal and custom. Keep reading to see two of my favorite ways I’ve styled my Frankie watch!
I am all about the jumpsuit life. I’m also all about the vintage band tee life. AKA This is the perfect early fall getup. I snagged this burnt orange jumpsuit at Marshall’s and you can grab a similar Led Zeppelin shirt here. I like this look because it’s fun and effortless but a little edgy too - my style aspirations always. For accessories I keep it simple with my wood watch and my go-to yellow Old Skool Vans. I think this outfit would also be so cute later in the season with a turtleneck and Chelsea booties!
When you’re ready for sweaters but can’t commit to sweaters out of fear of heat stroke, a heavy knitted tee is the perfect alternative. I love any suede open toed wedges to top off the autumn texture with my tied and true boyfriend jeans from Target. With this outfit being light and simple, I love bringing in darker accessories to balance it out. My tortoise shell earrings are always a favorite, and it really ties in with the ebony wood in the watch! For added warmth later on, a cropped leather jacket would make this look fab!
Personally I love how this unique watch adds something to every outfit. I love supporting a product with so much unique character and edge.
