JORD WOOD WATCHES: BOYFRIEND CAMEO










 wood watch c/o JORD | blue button down <more similar shirts HERE
| shorts <avail in stores @ H&M or similar HERE> |  BREWSEES sunglasses
 < The sunglasses have bottle openers on the ends >  | grey tee | sandals


Let's talk about the coolest gift you could ever possibly get yourself or the man in your life! Plus, with Father's Day just a few weeks away NOW is the time to start really thinking about unique presents. When JORD asked me to review one of their wood watches,  I was REALLY interested because I've never EVER seen a watch made of wood.  Their watches are made out of 100% natural wood and quite frankly my boyfriend hasn't stopped wearing his watch since he got it. 

 <<JUST FYI: To get Nate (my boyfriend) to LET ME take photos OF HIM for my blog is A BIG DEAL --  he pretty much only said yes because he LOVES his new watch!  >>

Why Nate loves it: 
  • It's light
  • It's a conversation starter
  • He has been getting compliments on the daily
  • And most of all he loves how unique it is

JORD IS NOT JUST FOR MEN they also have A TON OF GORGEOUS WATCHES FOR WOMEN!  Check out their site to see the Women’s and Men’s Watches in various sizes and colors.

The watch Nate is wearing is called The Delmar and while Jord is based in the US it has a wide of variety of natural and sustainably sourced wood from around the world. Some of their current series of watches include: bamboo, maple, sandalwood, blackwood, cherry, zebrawood & koa.


****GIVEAWAY****
THERE IS NOTHING I LOVE MORE THAN SHARING MY FAVORITE NEW PRODUCTS!  SO JORD AND I HAVE TEAMED UP TO GIVE ONE OF YOU

Wedges <Tory Burch - SOLD OUT >  similar HERE

I spent the weekend on beautiful Carolina Beach. So amazing and so much fun!
It is always such a great feeling to get out of town for a bit. Every year the American holidays come around and I always feel like I don't have enough red, white, and blue to wear but this year I was ready!

I got most of the outfit from Francesca's and I just love the bow on the back of the top. I wish I had time to get more photos but we were in such a rush so I had to get these taken quick.

I hope you had a wonderful 3 day weekend!! Do you have any great red, white, and blue items??
I am still on the hunt for my 4th of July look!

DON'T GET ME STARTED ON MY OBSESSION FOR THIS BAG. When I first received it I was skeptical of its size because it is the small "mini" mab but it has really grown on me. Now, I want to wear it ALL the time and with everything!

This weekend weather brought us a beautiful Saturday but a VERY gloomy Sunday.
< BIG thanks to Tropical Storm Ana >
Unfortunately, Monday is shaping up to look the same.

I took my outfit inspiration from the storm haha!
Grey - like the now tropical depression - and brightening her up with a pop of neon color! OH, and my shoes are from the wonderful world that is Boston Proper {a hidden gem}. They are now sold out but I liked some other great options above.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Some of the other fringe products I am OBSESSED with right now:


The 70's are back and better than ever! The spring runways were loaded with with fringe and I LOVE IT! Fringe just adds this bohemian flavor to any springtime outfit. Fringe bathing suits, fringe skirts, fringe tops, fringe bags, fringe shoes = FRINGE EVERYTHING! Are you loving fringe? 

On a side note - Nate and I are bracing for a tropical storm headed to the Carolina's. Tropical Storm Ana is expected to arrive on Sunday with a ton of rain so hopefully I will be able to get my pictures for the blog in before the storm gets here.

Ready For Summer + A VALENTINO GIVEAWAY

  














 skirt <comes in 4 colors> also similar for $12.00 HERE | top | earrings | bag | caged sandal heels <if your size is sold out try clicking "find in store"| tassel bracelets | gold bracelet <sold out> similar HERE | watch | lipstick

I've got a thing for bright colors. Clearly. The weekend went by so fast but Nate and I finally got a chance to get out to the Greenway. It's this beautiful long trail behind our home where you can run, bike, or just enjoy the scenery and take pictures like we did. It was so beautiful outside and finally starting to feel a little but like summer. So as a result of my summer excitement I broke out my fav bright colors - yellow and blue! This yellow top is so light >> (I know it is long sleeved) but it feels like air and the skirt is a short skirt under a sheer long skirt >> very cool concept and great for the hot weather.

 As for my shoes... well DON'T GET ME STARTED on how EXCITED I was when I discovered these dupes for the Dolce Vita caged sandal!!! I could not believe my eyes!
 I love finding an expensive look for less!
If it turns out you click the link and they are sold out in your size make sure to check "find in store" I found my pair in a store thirty minutes from my house, but it was SO WORTH the drive.

Have you ever traveled to a far away store to get a shopping deal?
