JORD Watch Review + Father's Day Giveaway [CLOSED]
Note: This post is now closed as of June 19, 2017.
When luxury wood watch brand, JORD, asked me if I wanted to partner with them on their Father's Day campaign, I jumped at the chance. What a fun way to bring the man behind my blog photos, my hubby, Dewey, center stage and on the week that we'll not only celebrate Father's Day, but our third wedding anniversary (tomorrow!). This would also be my very first collaboration with a brand and how great that the hubs, one of my biggest encouragers in starting my blogging journey, would get a gift out of it and a handsome and unique timepiece at that! So, here's our review of the JORD watch! Don't miss the link to my Father's Day giveaway below!
We'll start our review by saying that when the watch arrived, we were both impressed right away. We were drawn by the beautiful packaging (a nice wood box with the watch nestled on a burlap pillow) and we could see right away why this would be a great Father's Day, birthday or special occasion gift, especially for the guy who has everything. Hubs and I had the same reaction when we opened up the box: that it was stunning and really well-made. While he hadn't heard of JORD before, I had learned about JORD from many of the style bloggers I follow. Many talk about how beautiful and well-built the watches are. I believed it after seeing it in person. I loved the design of the particular watch we got, the JORD's Conway series Watch in Dark Sandalwood and Burgundy. Note its masculine vibe, chocolate brown band and unique face. Needless to say it got the hub's stamp of approval!
This weekend, hubby and I set out to do his photo shoot. I shop for most of his clothes (he likes to call me his stylist) so picking out his clothes was not out of the ordinary. This was his first time posing for the blog though and he did great! For his outfit, I chose this new burgundy polo shirt and light gray linen shorts I had recently bought him, which turned out to be the perfect backdrop for the timepiece. I love how the JORD watch stands out here and adds interest to his simple, casual outfit -- sometimes I forget that guys need accessories too! For his shoes, I told him to grab his favorite Vans sneakers, which just so happens to be burgundy too, although this look would work just as well with white sneaks too.
The hub's look here is actually one of my favorite looks for him in the summertime: a lightweight cotton polo shirt (we love the quality of these shirts from J.Crew Factory -- Dewey has had some of his for years!), linen shorts (our go-to for shorts is J.Crew Factory again) and a pair of canvas sneaks. I like this look because it's effortless and versatile; he can take it from a kids birthday party, which seems to be always on the agenda for us these days, with all our friends having babies, to dinner with the fam or date night. More importantly, he's comfortable in this, which is key. And now, with the JORD watch, he's got a great accessory to complete most of his looks -- thanks JORD!
