The husband and I have been really taking in this whole holiday season. We’ve stepped back a bit and just allowed ourselves to enjoy the family, the ambiance and the spirit of the season. The weather has been far from seasonal… as we’re still enjoying 70+ degree days… and it’s the end of December! But that’s okay, I’m learning that some of the best memories are made when things don’t go as expected.
I used to dread the winter. Frigid temperatures and long warm up times, just wasn’t my thing. As I get a little older, I’m falling in love with mild winters. I like it when it’s just cool enough to embrace boots, scarves and dressing in layers, but not too cold. Now I find myself looking forward to it – the cool breezes, bare trees, creative holiday décor and all the comfort food you can enjoy. Oh, and let’s not forget eggnog lattes… they’re the icing on the cake.
But hands down, the thing that I definitely enjoy the most about cold weather is winter fashion – boots, beanies, sweater dresses, scarves and dress coats! Winter is all about layering in style. I love winter white and cream colors during this season. In the winter, I can go a little overboard with neutral colors, so I have to keep tons of accessories on hand to spice things up a little. This year, I’ve changed things up a bit with my watch selection, as I’m finding that my smart watch might be functional, but it doesn’t go with every outfit.
I have a very feminine style, so I’m always looking to add accessories that compliment and don’t overwhelm. This JORD watch was just what I needed. One thing that really caught my attention was that they’re made with 100% natural wood. But what made me want one, was the deep tones and variations in the wood – perfect for winter style. I have the Frankie 35 series in Zebrawood with a navy face.
Let me be real honest with you…
I didn’t even realize how many people notice watches until I kept getting questions and compliments from both men and women.
