Minimalist Wooden Watch.

 My favorite simple accessory.

I will be the first to admit that I need to work on staying off my phone more. It is definitely a tough thing to accomplish when my job requires me to have it handy + in my spare time, I am doing this - blogging. I have been working on some simple things that I can do to omit the constant "phone in hand - face in screen" cycle I have created, like investing in a watch. There are some things I have control of + if looking at a watch can help to keep me from having the excuse to pull my phone out to check the time, I am all over it. 

It was pretty much perfect timing when JORD reached out to collaborate. I was on the hunt already for a watch + I had actually been looking at their collection. If I wear any type of accessory, it is either simple or minimal. They screamed my aesthetic. I love that their watches are made from natural wood, the designs are also classy, but unique.

Versatility was a priority since I want to make a habit of wearing a watch daily, so I needed something that would mesh well with my chamelion-like fashion sense. I fell in love with the Frankie series because of the minimalist design + the wide range of color selections. Ebony + Gold caught my eye from the get-go and I haven't taken it off since I got it.
