My Favorite New Accessory | A Unique Wood Watch by JORD

Watches are not only an accessory, but also a necessity with my busy lifestyle.

Watches are one of my favorite jewelry pieces and are timeless.  I literally have a collection of watches in my jewelry collection and they all range from different face sizes and metals.

Much to say I was very excited when I got contacted by a company named JORD Watches for a collaboration. After looking at their website and Instagram, I quickly became a fan of their watches and high-key obsessed.  I had never seen watches that were made of all wood, until I discovered JORD watches. I love that they are hand crafted from raw woods & materials. There is literally a watch for everyone, no matter man or woman, or fashion style.

I was able to choose any watch I wanted out of their wide collection of flawless watches. When I looked at their women’s collection online, the first watch that caught my eye was the Frankie Series in Purpleheart and Plum. For as long as I can remember, purple has been my favorite color, I saw the Purpleheart and Plum watch and I knew I needed it! The Purpleheart wood is a beautiful mix between pink and purple. It had a large plum colored face which I mentioned, I am a big fan of . I feel like this watch can be worn in any season whether it be fall or summer. It is a bright vibrant color during the summer time and a subtle deep color for the fall/winter time. JORD also gives you the ability to engrave your watch with any message or name you want, I have never had any jewelry pieces personally engraved with my name so I was so excited that this was an option! I got my first and middle name “Lori Allison” engraved on the back face of my watch in cursive. I couldn’t wait to get my watch delivered!

When I got the email notification that my watch got delivered I was super excited to get home! The watch was in a beautiful wood box and right when I opened it, my nose got hit with the smell of fresh wood! I never knew how good fresh cut wood smelt. The watch was exactly how imagined, the pigment of the Purplewood and the size of the watch face. It was also very light which I didn’t expect since its made all out of wood!

Happy Sunday!

A while back I got contacted by a boutique located in Newport Beach, California named Xo Mandy Sue to collaborate with them. My answer was an easy yes because all of their clothes are so cute and affordable, I also love that their style is beachy and effortless. If only I actually lived by a beach..

I purchased the Cheery set which is perfect for the summer time, it came with a tank top with knots at the sleeve and a pair of shorts with pockets. This set was only $52 which I love because I feel like it was super affordable compared to most stores. I love that you can throw this on for any activity such as going to the museum like I did, or even just to go to brunch. The heat and humidity is insane here in Texas so this set was definitely a go-to because it was so light and breathable. I also have been loving the color yellow lately and love that it really made me look tan – I felt like a ray of sunshine while wearing this outfit. I paired this outfit with my nude BP booties from Nordstrom and some statement earrings from Kendra Scott & of course some of my favorite sunnies. I wish it stayed hot year round in San Antonio so I could wear this set more often, but unfortunately its time to start preparing for the cooler, fall weather.

I also purchased the Mila dress, one thing that caught my eye about this dress when I was online shopping was the color blue, I am a big fan of light blue and periwinkle hues and I also loved that it was a floral pattern! The dress was $42, and honestly I think this dress would look flattering on any body shape and women of any size. You have the option to tie the dress around the neck to give it more of a high collared look but I decided to leave it loose and have the strings hang down on the side. I paired this dress with my tan fedora hat from Forever 21 and my DSW Franco Sarto open toed heels that I purchased from DSW and accessorized with my Purpleheart & Plum Jord Wood Watch and my gold Lacy earrings from Kendra Scott. I have already worn this dress so many times, I love the loose long sleeves and how flowy the dress is.

Saturday Outfit of the Day

IMG_8882

Hi Loves!

Today I finally was able to wear one of my favorite skirts that I bought from Posh Square. I bought this skirt a few months ago and I just haven’t worn it yet because I hadn’t found a perfect top to wear with it. However, I went to Charlotte Russe for their 40% off sale going on this weekend and found this off the shoulder black and white stripe crop top. I love how off the shoulder tops look with midi skirts so I went ahead and bought it to try it out. I ended up loving how it! Since the outfit was mostly black I decided to add a pop of color and wear my hot pink heels from Go Jane. For my accessories I wore a blingy necklace from Charlotte Russe and then a black hair bow in my hair from Forever 21.

I got so many compliments today from my boss, coworkers and strangers saying I looked very Sex in the City which was a great compliment!

I hope you all enjoyed this outfit and it will bring you inspiration on how to pair midi skirts!

Trips to San Marcos

IMG_8413

After work yesterday my mom, sister, and I went to San Marcos to go shopping at their outlet malls. I wanted to wear an outfit that was trendy and cute and easy to take off since I knew I would be trying on a lot of clothes. I went with this striped halter dress from Love Culture, added some long gold necklaces that I got from Charming Charlies. I have a few hats but I never wear them so I decided to throw on a straw fedora that I got from Charlotte Russe and lastly ended the outfit with my Christian Siriano booties that I didn’t end up lasting in haha. When I went shopping at Forever 21 I ended up buying the glasses I’m wearing for $5 and I absolutely love them!

Later on today, or tomorow I will share with you’ll my haul of all the things I purchased yesterday!
