Navy and Wood + Giveaway!

I know it's been awhileeeeee aka basically forever since I've blogged but man a full time job has been kicking my ass!! I thought I could handle working and blogging and school but I clearly couldn't. I honestly don't know how some bloggers do it. I seriously applaud them. Please teach me your ways!! 

But I did manage to shoot a few posts that will be going live in the weeks to come so you will get some new content from me. YAY! 

Seriously thank you for sticking with me through this hiatus period. I honestly thought I wouldn't have any views in my time off but they kept going up so thank you from the bottom of my heart! :) 

Today's post isn't about me but about my brother, Alex! Andddd there's a fun giveaway at the bottom of the post in honor of my return back to blogging! WOOHOO! 

Sunglasses: Unknown// Button down: Target (similar here)// Shorts: Target (similar here)// Shoes: Unknown (similar here)// Watch: Jord Watches// 

Usually Alex is behind the camera taking my photos but today we switched it up and I'm the one snapping pics! When Jord Watches reached out to me to collaborate for a post I immediately thought of my brother for this watch. Navy/blue looks good on him and he's been talking about upping his style game so I figured this would be the perfect introduction to helping him do it! 

I styled him in a navy short-sleeve button down from Target, khaki cargo shorts (I strongly dislike cargo shorts but he likes them so I had to roll with it) and nice brown dress sandals. He accessorized with the watch, of course, and his sunglasses which I also didn't want him to wear but he said he liked these the best and felt most comfortable in them so I let him wear them. 

This look isn't too casual but not too dressy and could go for lunch, running errands, church, Sunday brunch, etc. It's one of those multi-purpose outfits that can be worn to various things. I feel like guys looks can be worn for like a million things whereas a girl's outfit is activity specific. Anyone else feel like that? Haha! 

But seriously how cool is this watch packaging?! When I opened it up I just gasped. It's a beautiful wood box, with the watch, watch cushion and it comes with a cleaning cloth and wood polish. Talk about a company/brand who's doing packing right! 

So what's the big deal with this watch? It's just a watch right? 

NOPE! What set's Jord Watches apart from all the different watch brands is that they are made of 100% wood, yup wood. Thus the wood polish they had in the packaging. 
Isn't is a cool watch?! I love how the dark wood and the grain compliments the navy face and gold detailing. It's such a stunning watch! 

They also are based out of St. Louis, Missouri and "work, play and live" there so they're a totally U.S. based company which I love! 

This watch is the Frankie series in zebrawood and navy which can be worn by men or women. If you're a woman who love huge watch faces then this watch is for you! They do have specific men's watches and women's watches if you want a watch that's smaller. 
They have toooons of different styles, wood finishes, watch face colors, etc. so be sure to check out their men's and women's shops! Plus, it can be dressed up or down. You could wear it with shorts and a t-shirt or a blazer and dress pants. It's a multi-purpose watch which I personally love. 

Anddddddd it's a suuuper nice quality watch but doesn't break the bank. How much do you think this watch is? $250? $275? $300? NOPE! It's $189! UNDER $200 FOR A WOOD WATCH! How crazy is that!?

This would also make a great gift for your brother, boyfriend, dad, mom, sister, girlfriend, or any other important person in your life. It's a great graduation, birthday, anniversary or Father's Day gift since it's coming up soon or a belated Mother's Day gift! 
Now onto the fun part! Jord was kind enough to host a GIVEAWAY with this post too! Yup you could win a $100 gift code to buy your own Jord watch! You could get a watch for potentially under $100 and have free shipping. Can I get a woot woot? 

But if you don't win the $100 code, they are also giving everyone else a $25 code as a thank you for entering! So if you were to get this exact watch it would be roughly $164 before tax. UNDER $175 for a unique watch that let's you stand out from the crowd. 

Just enter by clicking this link. It's that easy!

The contest ends 5/28/17 at 11:59pm CST. Must have valid email address to enter. 

Congratulations to William for winning the $100 gift code! And thank you to everyone who entered!
