Spring has sprung! Today's post is in collaboration with Jord Watches, a brand that focuses on more than just telling time. As the days get longer and warmer, I make sure to continually add meaning and intention to my life by engaging in things during the spring season that bring me joy. From the moment I wake up, to the end of the day as I lie in bed writing in my journal, I always make sure I live a life of authenticity and content.
Jord's unique wood watches are made with the same intention as well, focusing on a modern lifestyle of experiential living. I not only love Jord's minimal design, but their beliefs that "moments are bigger than minutes" and that you should always be mindful of the need to make that time count. Here at In Search of Sheila, I encourage observing your surroundings and learning as many new things as possible. I'm always on the search for meaning and there's no other perfect time to embrace this ideal than the blooming of spring!
For this look I decided to style the watch around a more casual outfit, illuminating the idea of an exploratory and adventurous lifestyle. I just got these new Adidas Neo sneakers and they are SO comfy which make them perfect for long days of walking, especially when I travel! I will honestly be wearing them all spring into summer.
Lets talk about my watch! I received the Frankie Koa and Ash women's watch, a beautiful mahogany color with a clean finish and minimal face. Koa wood is actually native to Hawaii and has a very smooth finish. I really love this color shade, because it will pair perfectly with practically any outfit. Especially since this season is all about bold prints and colors, adding a neutral watch is the perfect spring accessory. Another cool thing about Jord is that they offer custom wrist sizing, which is great for people like me who always struggle finding a watch that fits!
Jord also offers other shades and wood materials such as bamboo, maple, ebony, walnut, sandalwood, and olive. They are bound to have a style and wood that suits your aesthetic and lifestyle and also carry a range of men's watches!
