IMG_7772IMG_7598Hello LadiesBerries. strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, rasberries, all my favorite fruits and great for making some summertime light dessert recipes and muddled cocktails.  In fashion, I  love the shades in the family of purple: plums, burgundy, wine, eggplant etc.  Often, these colors are considered more fall shades, but I am demonstrating today, how it pairs nicely with black, gold, as a summer maxi dress.  The richness in these shades are also colors  that remind me of one of my favorite hobbies or past-times, as you know, trying different wines from different regions. I am quite fond of the Spanish varietal, ie. Granache, Tempranillo, and Malbec, but also enjoy a Pinot Nior and Syrah. In the summer, however, I like a bit of fruitiness in my wine. Sangria is one of my favorite drinks to sip on the deck, while enjoying the sunshine on my patio.The unique "berry toned' watch I have styled  today is a collaboration with Jord, one of my favorite companies.  JORD is offering a contest and entering is easy! Just enter in this post for your chance to win.These "berry tones"  in this  women's watch, is the Cora Purple Heart watch. by JORD. As always with Jord, I received excellent service and a beautiful watch in a timely manner. This wood, the Purpleheart, is so unique, one can not help but appreciate the red-purple tones. The Purple Heart Wood is a wood found  in the Solomon Islands that possesses a fine grain and a natural purple color, however, after it is cut it has a different grey tone. Once it has been exposed, it possesses the natural beauty of the purple tone . The watch is stunning with its dark shade and mother of pearl watch face where the inner mechanism of the watch is displayed. Little crystals shine in the sun. The watch face is smaller than the Fieldcrest collection, and one I prefer, as I have small wrists; I  just like the proportion. The Cora Purpleheart is "splashproof" but "not meant to be submerged in water."( website) As a luxury watch, it also comes in a beautiful wood box to store your timepiece. The watch is a self-winding watch, as I have mentioned in previous interviews, so one should wear it for longer periods to continue it moving.As I sat outside with my husband and pups, admiring my  watch and enjoying our conversation, I was also thinking about how these moments and  are what is most important. Making memories. Being with the ones you love. Spending time.Outfit details: Burgundy Maxi dress: H&M, Fringe Sandals: payless, Clutch: JJ Winters, earrings: Jewel Box Boutique, Jord Cora PurpleHeart Watch c/o JORDTo check out more of their women's watches, click HERE.  ************ *******CONTEST!**************************FOR THIS SUMMER CAMPAIGN, JORD IS HAVING A CONTEST along with ELEGANTLY DRESSED AND STYLISHTO ENTER CLICK HEREThe winner will receive $75 coupon, any other entries will receive a $20 coupon.Good Luck!

IMG_7007IMG_7037Hello Ladies!What do maple, rosewood, and koa wood have in common? Yes, I know these are great woods used in guitar making. However are taking fashion here though. Give up? These are all woods used in the making of some of the JORD watches, particuarly the watches I own. With this review, I chose the Fieldcrest Maple watch, a watch different from the others I own. I typically choose a smaller watch face as I have skinny wrists, however this time I went for the trend of a larger watch face for a different look The Fieldcrest series is considered unisex, so if you are interested in this look or want a slightly larger watchface, this line has that. I want to add another link to this to make it more like a bracelet hanging from my wrist, and was provided with a few extra links..If you are not familiar with JORD, I have worked with them in the past, and reviewed the Cora Koa and Rose Gold Watch, and the Ely Red Sandalwood watch for their darker wood and beautiful watch faces. These watches have a smaller watch face.  JORD is a company that I respect for their workmanship and love the aesthetic look of their watches. With this look today, I wanted a neutral, natural look with texture from the watch, lace skirt and faux snakeskin t-strap flats. ( they are new! )  A bit of color was added to this all neutral look with the pink Balenciaga Rose City Bag adding a soft tone to this feminine look. Read both reviews HERE and HERE.
