Arm Candy – Jord Wood Watch

July 7, 2016

Las Vegas - Glam Style at NightWe’re finally weeks into summer and I can’t believe how hot it is in Las Vegas.  If you follow me on Snapchat (mikialamode), you’ll have been with me on vacation and seen some of the things I’ve been wanting to buy. I decided to take a plunge on a few items and now bursting with excitement about sharing some of my new arm, foot and beach candy with you, but let’s just go ahead and give you a sneak peek into the first of many!

Las Vegas Ballagio - Style BlogGaia Ark Cult Gaia BagJord Watch Frankie Zebrawood-NavyJord WatchesCeilingAlice Olivia Jumpsuit Back DetailVegas StyleLas Vegas Style BlogFor the last several months, I’ve been looking for a nice wrist watch.  Now that I’m driving through LA traffic, I need to keep track of time more than ever.  When I’m headed out to a meeting, seeing friends, catching a flight, wandering around town, or running out to an event like a dinner and show as I was in Las Vegas last weekend, I constantly take my phone out to look at the time. It’s not practical to be diving into my large handbag, or even this wooden one to check my phone for the time regularly, especially when I’m in a hurry.  A large handbag is like a black hole for a phone; once it’s in, it’s almost hopeless to find and pull back out.

I wanted a watch with a large face, but one that had some special qualities and this Jord Watch has it!  I love the natural look of wood since there aren’t many like this on the market.  For the woman on the move, something chic, classic and durable is key, and for most of us out there affordability sure doesn’t hurt. The face is made of sapphire glass crystal, which is second strongest to diamond. Don’t you hate it when the face of your watch or the surface of sunglasses scratch? It drives me crazy – especially when it’s an accessory that I should be able to use for a long time!

The sleek look makes it easy to be worn with so many outfits. For this post, I am wearing an Alice & Olivia black halter jumpsuit which bares my back yet has metallic sheen up top – a classic, subtle, yet glam look for Las Vegas that I can wear on more than one occasion. The Jord Wood Watch paired really nicely with this wooden bag – both new obsessions of mine.

All Jord Watches are conditioned with natural tung oil to prevent cracking.  When I ordered mine, they asked for my wrist measurement so that I could have it custom fitted to my tiny wrists.  I mean, who doesn’t love an item that is customized?  When Tom isn’t with me, my accessories are my best arm candies.

If you are looking for a unique gift or are looking to get a watch for yourself, Jord Watch has some really beautifully and affordable coloured wood watches with striking designs for both women and men.  They’re even running a contest and fantastic promotion right now. If you sign up, you are entered for a chance to win $75 off your watch.  Each entry automatically entitles you to a $20 off promo code, so if you don’t win the contest, you’re still winning with a great discount.  To enter, click here for your chance to win!

    Girl, you look stunning in this outfit! I am a fan of Jord Watches! The woodwork is amazing!

      Aw, thanks so much Rach! I love their watches too. The woodwork is so pretty and the face is a great size. Love the packaging. I store mind in the box when i don’t wear it. 🙂

    Wow! What breathtaking pictures you have! I love it!

    Me, I can never leave the house without a watch. I agree with you that it is impractical to be constantly scrambling for your phone to check the time. But a nice watch that will go with any occasion and any outfit is a must! That Jord watch is definitely one of the few watches that has those. 🙂

    It’s definitely a cool watch! You don’t see a lot of wood watches. I really like wearing a watch too, it’s so much easier to check the time than digging around in your purse and trying to find your phone!


    • miki July 11, 2016 at 3:04 pm

      I couldn’t agree more. Thanks so much Colleen!

  • Rina July 7, 2016 at 4:01 pm

    I adore this as a Vegas outfit! I’m definitely at the point in my life where wearing mini dresses in Vegas doesn’t sound like a fun idea and love how glam and sophisticated this is!

    • miki July 11, 2016 at 3:14 pm

      I know what you mean Kasie! 🙂 So glad you enjoyed the post!

      Thanks Yuliya! I’m in love with it. Especially good since I go to the local beaches here pretty often. 🙂

    The watch is super cute, but girl, your bag!! I need that bag! They were sold out for a while now but I’m gonna check bag again.

    • miki July 11, 2016 at 3:30 pm

      Thanks!! I’m obsessed with this bag. It’s been sold out for a long time actually. I’m a little sad that the price used to be about half and has now doubled since its release due to its popularity, but I have worn it quite a bit, so justifiable. 🙂

  • The Fashion Folks July 8, 2016 at 12:07 pm

    The bag is just too chic babe! Love the contrast between its simplicity and the luxurious feeling of your outfit! Xx

  • Kelsie Galis July 8, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    Purses are totally like a black hole, you can never find what your searching for when you need it! Love the watch, it’s so cute!! Very beachy and summery which I love!! Glad you had fun in Vegas, can’t believe we missed each other by only a weekend! 😀


    • miki July 11, 2016 at 3:37 pm

      Thanks! Loving this watch. 🙂 Vegas is just a place we’ll just always have a chance to visit. 🙂
