ahhh… the weekend :) time for recharging while also gettin’ stuff done. this weekend is extra special because my college roommate and her new fiance are staying with us. i’m so excited to hike, nom nom through the town and geek out on youtube, board games and game of thrones. del and i have been best friends for 8 years now, and it seems like yesterday we were sitting on my bed doing calculus homework and watching the sword in the stone on my 19 inch monitor. i don’t know what kind of person i’d be without her love and support through those chaotic years of adolescence. time just flies when you spend it with the people you care about the most.
now speaking of time… today i have a special post about a beautiful new watch that just joined the miss louie family. this is the dark sandalwood fieldcrest series watch by jord. i can’t even begin to tell you how much i love this watch, people.
my fieldcrest is made of beautiful, natural dark sandalwood from Mozambique (how cool does that sound?), and i think the rich, espresso color will match perfectly with any fall or winter outfit. the black face provides a perfect background for the silver hands, and the washes of mid tone browns in the strap give it a real organic feel. next, i am SO impressed with how lightweight and non irritating this watch is, even with daily wear. i normally have to fling my heavy, large metal watches off mid-day due to rashes or pure annoyance, but this guy sits comfortable on my wrist all day without weighing me down. lastly, i love the fact that this watch was made with sustainability and craftsmanship as the top priority. i love knowing where the wood from my watch came from, i love the simplicity and timelessness of the design and i love that i can wear this for many years to come. oh, and they are half the price of my MK watches, so it won’t break your freaking wallet in half :)
thank you so much, jord, for giving me this opportunity to try your beautiful watches. your commitment to modern design and sustainable innovation is truly inspirational. if you guys haven’t checked out jord and are due for a new watch… well, i think you know what i’m going to recommend :) there are many different kinds of woods on the site along with different colored faces. i know you will find something you will love. have a great weekend, y’all!!
