Fringe, denim and a wood watch & Link up

August 11, 2015

Happy Tuesday! As most of you know I spent all of last week away on vacation to Williamsburg, VA and some time at Virginia beach which was much needed. Because I packed light, this fringe lined tee I got last summer and these new denim shorts were on repeat for most of the week and even more so were my accessories, especially this lovely JORD Wooden Watch.



What I love about this particular watch is not only that it is made of wood, but that the color and neutrality about it goes with just about anything I wear. In this post I kept the watch styled with a more laid back summer look, and added some gold toned bracelets and jewelry to mix up the look.



When I received the watch I was very pleased with the quality and craftmanship of the wood. The watch was already set for my time zone and measured according to my wrist measurements as indicated and instructed on the website for my particular watch here. The watch came with a pillow insert and matching wood colored box and was in my mailbox within days of my order.


The fit of the watch was comfortable with its deployment buckle and push button for an easy slip on and off as needed. Speaking of comfortable, this entire outfit was just that. Ahhh! I can still feel the lovely feeling of this comfortable outfit now.





I wore this outfit out to dinner with my family to Cracker Barrell and on a quick Starbucks run… hello Java Chip frappachino.

Now on to the featured five from last week and link up:


I love Elsie’s bold cultural dress and statements on becoming more confident and bold, especially around those around her. Check out her post and style here.



Amy recently began an Instagram challenge where she would wear items that shouldn’t be worn in the age of 30s and up just to show it doesn’t matter and that you can wear what you want. Because I myself just turned 30 I am proud of her challenge and attitude. See her outfits here.

    I love that wooden watch, so pretty. There is something really special about modern items made from traditional materials.

    Love it!
