Would you believe I haven't worn a watch since elementary school? Obviously, it was one of those Mickey Mouse watches with the rotating hands - haha! These days, I feel like I rely on my cell phone for the time, so why do I need a watch? But let's be honest, how many times have you pulled your phone out of your pocket to look at the time, been distracted by the 5 text messages, emails, and Instagram notifications you have, and 3 minutes later, when you put your phone back in your pocket, you realize you didn't even see what time it was?!
JORD Wood Watches was kind enough to send me this beautiful Purpleheart and Mother of Pearl wrist watch from their Cora series, and I was excited to give "adult" watch-wearing a try. I chose this watch because I knew it would be a great statement piece transitioning from summer to fall. I love the way it complements vibrant summer colors as well as brightens up those autumn neutrals.
The Charleston Tea Plantation. Lined with the most beautiful live oak trees, it's one of the coolest natural places to visit on a hot and humid summer day. Of course, I added the wood watch to my #ootd of a black tee, white jeans, statement necklace, and favorite bangles.
