It all started with my new Nordgreen Scandinavian gold watch. Today’s inspiration that is. I was aware of the company, Nordgreen through other bloggers and I loved the minimalistic design of the watches, so I was thrilled when they contacted me.
I do have a “thing” for watches. And since I started blogging, I have a bit of a collection. Wooden watches, classic dressy watches, a rose gold watch given to me on my Anniversary by my husband. So, I do love beautiful looking timepieces. A gold minimalistic watch looking watch was something I didn’t have in my collection. Enter Nordgreen.
Nordgreen sells both women’s and men’s watches in silver, gold, and rose gold watch faces. The interchangable watch bands is quite fashionable, as you can change it with your daily look.
Nordgreen and Sustainability
Nordgreen was started by two friends who wanted to create a watch company that featured Scandinavian design, sustainability and giving back.
“Months of thought lie behind every subtle detail to ensure a sustainable, functional, yet affordable collection compatible with any lifestyle.” website.
The name Nordgreen comes from the Scandinavian minimalist design, the “Nordic” identity. The “Green” is from creating a sustainable product- from choosing sustainable manufacturers and products. They have a vegan collection and the packaging is eco-friendly
Jakob Wagner, a recognized and renowned awarded Scandinavian designer, is the man behind the scenes. He works with the company to develop a modern product that meets the company’s high standards. Jakob Wagner is the former lead designer of B&O and HAY.
Nordgreen believes in creating a sustainable, modern timepiece, but also wants the customer to feel good about what the watch represents.
They have partnered with 3 fields in order to create change in health, education, and environment. To read more about the Giving Back Program READ HERE.
So, not only can you feel good about purchasing a Nordgreen stylish watch, but you can give back to the world, things that we often take for granted. I am very impressed with this Copenhagen-based Scandinavian watch brand.
The 3 areas of assistance are:
- Provide Clean water . Clean water to one person in the Central African Republic
- Educate the Future. Gve two months education to a child in India
- Protect the Rainforest. Help preserve the Rainforest in Latin America.
I love this aspect of the company. The company also lets you give back. Using the serial and identification numbers found with the vegan watch you purchase, you have the unique ability to choose which cause is most important to you and where your donation will go. You can track your contribution and you have the ability to choose your charity.
When selecting a watch, there are 3 styles to choose from.
I chose the Infinity watch in Gold with a gold band. I didn’t have a gold watch in my collection, and with all of my warm outfits, it would get a lot f wear. I also chose the 32 mm size, as I have a small wrist and wanted a slightly smaller watch face. The dial is white with gold markings for time. I love the simplicity and that it was inspired by nature. The elegant design also features a removable strap if you wish to interchange styles. I have my eye also on this white leather band for summer.
Warm mustard and gold tones were inspired for this outfit by my new Nordgreen gold watch. I started there, added my snakeskin gold booties and went from there!
I did forget the tip or hack for tucking in a sweater into skirts or jeans/pants. On Youtube, a vlogger offered the hack of wearing a thin belt near the bottom of your sweater and pulling the sweater over the belt, keeping it clean and put together. I tucked this sweater into my skirt as I forgot the hack! But I will remember in the future!
I received this sweater from my mother in law at Christmas, and I loved the color. The bow at the neckline is a pretty feature and a slight puff sleeve keeps it modern.
My textured gold skirt is from Banana Republic, and adds to the more monochromatic look.
Thank you to Nordgreen c/o Opinions are my own and truthful.
