Summer Style with JORD Watches + Giveaway

Thanks to JORD for sponsoring this post!

It's clear that the summertime allows my style to become much more playful. Colors and prints are worn without reservation, and the round rattan bag has been the anchor. When JORD contacted me to review one of their stunning wood watches, I decided to go with the Frankie style in the zebrawood and champagne, as I love the light natural shade of the wood and the gold hardware (because I love gold everything, and while I might have chosen the navy face, it's silver hardware was just not going to work for me). The unique wood watch could not be a more perfect compliment to the rattan bag, and my summer style right now. The watch is also quite the conversation piece - very few people have ever encountered a wood watch!

I really love how lightweight and comfortable the watch is to wear - also it's worth noting that this is the smaller version of the Frankie with the 35mm watch face rather than the 45mm, which is more sized for men.

This past winter I gave Sean a watch for Christmas, even though he was adamant that he was not a watch person. Well, that certainly did change and now he won't leave the house without it. JORD has some gorgeous men's watches and even offers engraving, plus they come in a gorgeous wood box with a magnetic lid, which would make for such a perfect gift - even though it's August and I don't want to think about the holiday season yet, it doesn't hurt to have an idea in the back of my mind!

Whatever your summer style may be, you are likely to find a JORD watch to fit it, and JORD is offering one Chic on the Cheap reader a $100 gift code, but everyone who enters will receive a $25 gift code! Everybody wins!
The contest will close August 20 at 11:59pm. Both the $100 and the $25 codes will expire on 10/31/2017.

  4. I love the print of that skirt! And the shoes are a perfect match!
    The watch is so much fun! I need to start breaking out my watches again but I don't really go many places where I'd need it anymore, hah...aka out in public.

  5. Summer is so flirty and fun! I love seeing people in ruffles and experimenting with their style more! You rock that bag so hard!

  6. I've had my eye on one of those rattan bags and I get closer to pulling the trigger every time I see you style yours, but now that I've seen it with this watch, I think it may finally be the day - the two pieces just look so absolutely meant to be together and they compliment the warm tones in your skirt and shoes so perfectly. I'm not much of a watch person most of the time but I do have certain favourites and I do think they make wonderful accessories to change up day-to-day looks.

  7. Summer is the best time of the year. I love to play with my style too.
    Your bag is so adorable.
    Have a nice week.

    Love, Esther

  8. JORD watches have an amazing quality and they look just amazing on anyone!
