Summertime calls for vibrant, effervescent and colorful clothing and accessories, a perfect match to the season. It’s the ideal time to kick back in your favorite bright flowy dress, or your favorite pair of white shorts, while sipping on ice cold drinks on the beach. Yes, that is all-year-round behavior here in the Caribbean, but thats not the point (haha). While planning my trip to Barbados, I started to gather potential tropical vacation themed outfits and I realized something was missing.

While I was packing up my carry-on luggage and sifting through my jewelry box, I came to the conclusion that a unique and colorful piece of jewelry was what all my summer outfits were slacking! This is where JORD Watches came in handy. JORD Watches is “focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle.” They value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living.

JORD watches are unique because the bodies are all hand crafted from wood. There are 13 types of wood to choose from, including a purple heart wood (which resembles the color of a beet) or a golden bamboo. Also, the movements are either self winding or battery powered. With so many choices, each watch has its own look and story to match yours. I chose the Reece Series Zebrawood & Emerald watch. The Emerald green color  reminded me of the turquoise Caribbean sea, so I knew it would’ve been perfect for all my summer outfits.

Now, let’s all be real here, when you hear “Wooden Watch”, chic, modern or stylish are not the first words that pop up in your head right? With a JORD Watch, you don’t have to worry about that. The zebra wood material gives off a luxurious yet street chic vibe, making accessorizing easy whether you’re dressing up or down.

When it comes to watches, we all have that one watch that tugs on our arm hair while we wear it. This is not the case with this or any JORD Watch! Not only is it one of the most comfortable watches I’ve ever worn, it also feels like you’re not even wearing one due to its light weight on the wrist! This makes it soooo easy to travel and walk around with. All of the JORD watches are splash resistant, so don’t be afraid to take it to the beach or the pool. However, they cannot be submerged in water, so try not to perfect your cannonball while wearing it! If your watch did get a little splish splash at the pool, just wipe it off and polish it with the finishing oil provided with every purchase!
