Hi.

Welcome! My hopes for this blog is for it to serve as an honest guide to your twenties and thirties, whether you're in a small town, big city, or somewhere in between. Survive in style and athletically with me!

Wood is the new black.

Guys. It's fall. Okay, not officially, but as soon as September hits, I'm in full-autumnal mode. I already had my first PSL of the season...on September 1, right before a job interview (for luck of course, and it worked--I'm back in the world of ad copy testing!). Along with my first PSL, early September means swapping out my wardrobe and prepping for Fall!

While getting my Fall accessories together, I discovered an awesome new watch from JORD that's made out of wood. Yeah, the entire band is wooden. How cool is that?

They were kind enough to send one along for me to check out, and it's quickly become my favorite watch to wear when I don't need my apple watch (as you guys know, I wear my Apple Watch to work out!). It's the perfect classy accessory for the office, but also looked great with my jeans and a tank top at the Air and Water Show! 

Large jewelry is always a bit scary for me (see my tiny necklace? That's why I wear it!) but this watch is absolutely perfect. It gives me a hint of that trendy, chunky look in a classy package that fits perfectly with both my casual style and my office looks. 

Below, I've styled it with a tank top from Vince, distressed ankle jeans from Free People, black ankle booties from Jeffrey Campbell (bonus: they're rain boots!) and my solid gold Chicago Flag necklace created by my friend Martha, whose family owns M&M Jewelers in the Loop! Totally a casual look, and this watch fits it perfectly. I get constant compliments, especially when people realize that it's wooden! 

Interested yet? Check here to look at the entire women's shop. There are watches available for literally everyone's personal style. My watch is here, but there are dozens to choose from, so be sure to check out the entire store!
