Guess who’s back?! It’s been quite some time since my last post but the time away was necessary as I am still recovering from an accident. However, today is a new day and I’m finally well enough to sit up at my desk and share with you all. That being said, happy International Women’s Day to all my fabulous lady bosses! Kudos to those of you who are off duty or wearing red today in support of “A Day without a Woman”. I’ll admit I have some personal thought on this “strike” but I will save that for another time, possibly a culture post.
Those of you who follow me on Instagram know that I received a gorgeous gift for Valentine’s Day. I now have a beautiful new time piece courtesy of JORD Watches. Founded in 2013 with a focus on crafting designer watches from all natural materials, JORD timepieces offer sustainability and efficiency to fit a modern lifestyle.
I recently wore my emerald and zebra-wood watch and it was truly a conversation starter! I’ll admit initially I had some reservations about how to style this piece for dressier occasions, given it’s wood bracelet, but I was pleasantly surprised by the result. I found the perfect sheath dress by NY & Co from their Eva Mendes Collection to accompany my new accessory.
The green sequins with subtle metallic gold work so well together in this striped pattern. They offer just the right amount of glam for a daytime ensemble and bring out the emerald face of my watch. I added my trusty leather jacket and black heels to keep things simple, but opted for gold jewelry and a vintage black chain purse to complete the look.
