Tis the season for endless family and friends get togethers, gift exchanges, and plenty of eggnog. As hard as I tried to shop on Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend for Christmas gifts, I ended up selfishly buying more things for me. But on the bright side, I have this very comfortable and warm grey sweater from Nordstrom to get me through the holiday parties and get-togethers. I’ve worn the sweater almost every day now with different looks; casual, fancy, cozy. It is so versatile for these chilly months.

Here I have paired it with my favourite ripped boyfriend jeans and my gorgeous new rose gold AirMax that I got while I was in New York. Even with the exchange being so bad, I couldn’t resist the limited edition from Nike. To finish off the look, I added in my new wood watch I received from JORD. It adds a classic look to a casual outfit, and brings in a warmer colour to offset my light look.

Let’s talk about this women’s watch from Jord! I’m loving the wood, it adds a different texture to the outfit but still looks like a classic timepiece. First off, I know how you’re saying it in your head and it’s actually pronounced “yode” (rhymes with toad), you’re welcome. It means “earth” in Swedish, which I love; it really ties in the whole wood, earthy tones. 

I was contacted by the company and at first I was a little wary that they were just like every other watch company but now that I have it and have learned more about what the brand represents, I’m in love! The brand is run by artists, designers, marketers and minders focused on creating timepieces that are modelled after a modern lifestyle. They value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. What really caught my eye was there outlook on telling more than time. “The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.”

The watches themselves are made from 13 different types of wood to get the unique look and colour, like this one that I have. I like the more simple look, but they have designs that are much more vibrant and bold if that’s what you’re looking for. They also sell men’s watches if you’re looking for a gift for your man, dad or grandpa!
