As you may have noticed, I've been on a bit of a blogging hiatus. Unfortunately this wasn't by choice- my laptop was never particularly reliable, but this time it's deader than dead. When I was contacted by JORD about their holiday campaign, I knew I had to find a workaround so that I wouldn't miss such a fun opportunity. So, here I am, typing to you from my parents' ancient and painfully slow desktop.
Without further ado, here's an easy and festive look to recreate for Christmas parties!

Confession: I've never owned a watch before. But I absolutely love the artistry and uniqueness of JORD's watches, so I had to try them out, and I'm so glad I did! The care and detail JORD puts in is evident in not only the watch design, but the packaging- I'll have to get a photo of the gorgeous wood box it came in! The watch style I chose is enough of a statement piece that it can stand alone, but it also looks lovely stacked with other bracelets. While I tend to go for girlier pieces, I was instantly drawn to the emerald face of the Frankie watch. My eyes are green, so it's my favorite color to wear or work into an outfit. And it had the added bonus of fitting perfectly into a holiday outfit!
The wood links and watch faces are artisinal and unique while still being versatile, and I love how they're much lighter than metal watches. I also have tiny wrists, so I appreciated that I could have the watch pre-sized to fit me. They have an engraving option as well, and while it's too late to get an engraved watch as a Christmas gift since they need time to be personalized, a gift for the guys in your life year-round. And a non-engraved one is still a great gift, because let's be honest, sometimes boys don't appreciate the subtle details. You can get a $25 gift certificate for them here if you want to get one for someone (or yourself)!
Happy holidays! Now that I know my family's computer is semi-usable, I'll see if I can use it to get some posts up until I can replace my laptop :)
