How are we already over half way through April?? Time is flying by, and with Mother’s Day, graduations, and Father’s Day over the next couple months, we’ve got special celebrations coming up.

That’s why I’m so excited to have collaborated with JORD to bring you some unique gift inspiration, along with an easy to enter contest!

I’ve always loved watches. Not only do they serve as the perfect arm candy, but they’re a practical accessory to invest in! I’ve had a few pretty time pieces over the years, but never one made of 100% natural wood like this.

As soon as I came across JORD’s wood watches, I knew there was some real art here. I had always worn a metal watch, and just knew I had to change it up with one of these special accessories.

From the beautiful packaging to the colorful faces, these watches bring a different flair from the moment you receive them.

Because I’m a fan of larger faces, selecting a piece from JORD’s Frankie series was an easy choice! How cool is that dark sandalwood and emerald face combo? A dreamy combo in my book.

For its first wear, I paired my watch with a casual white maxi to let it be the real star of the show, but it truly goes with everything! Another reason I love this statement piece so much – it stands out while fitting seamlessly with my wardrobe.

Earlier this month I had been thinking, what do I gift my sweet mama for Mother’s Day this year? What’s fitting for the most wonderful woman in the whole world? Once I had this JORD watch on my wrist, it hit me. She’s got nothing like this. Mom needs a piece as one-of-a-kind as her!

I’ve been combing through the women’s watches and just can’t decide yet – there are so many beautiful combinations.

And don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about dads! There’s actually something for everyone. Wait until you see all the styles in JORD’s men’s section.

Or hey, for you. Because #treatyoself, am I right??

So whether you’re in need of a unique gift for mom, dad, an upcoming grad – or looking to change up your go-to watch with a fun accessory, I want to help you make it happen!
