In our household, Valentine’s Day is every day so it’s not a holiday or date we necessarily put a huge emphasis on each year.  To my husband and I, Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love and we embrace love and commitment each and every day.  Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy the occasional flowers, box of chocolates or jewelry but for us, Valentine’s Day is really about spending time with one another.  You see – with our busy schedules and odd shifts, parenthood and just our overall daily lives, spending time with one another is what makes for a great Valentine’s Day.

Time With The Ones You Love Is Always Well Spent

“Any time not spent on love is wasted.” – Torquato Tasso

My husband Kevin and I have been together for almost 19 years and in that time we have definitely celebrated this holiday in different ways.  Dinner by candle light, roses and floras galore and beautiful gems and jewels to stop traffic but one tradition we have definitely kept strong over the years is a new watch for one another.  Whether I’m buying a new one for him or he a new one for me, each year whether for the holidays, birthday or Valentine’s Day at least one of us gets a new watch for our collection.  Watches are so significant to each of us.  To us, a watch is more than just an accessory we wear on our wrists, it symbolizes time and our time together is so precious and important to us.

“I would rather have 30 minutes of something wonderful, than a lifetime of nothing special.” – Julia Roberts (Steel Magnolias)

This year I treated Kevin to a beautiful JORD Watch – a 94A Series in green sandalwood and maple.  This perfect wood watch makes a statement that is bold but not so much that it would make a person feel uncomfortable when wearing it.   It is the kind of watch for those who are making the most of every moment, every single minute and every day.  For a couple like us who collects watches of all kinds, this particular time piece is classic and stunning.

While each couple or person celebrates Valentine’s Day the way they choose, we opt to make sure that no matter the reason, we make sure that we spend time with one another, soaking in each and every moment and absolutely cherishing what we have.  As a couple we have learned that life’s moments can sneak up on you and in a heartbeat anything can change.  Make use of the time you have and spend it with the one(s) you love.  Make Valentine’s Day every day and make every moment you live something wonderful.

Each person celebrates love differently and whether it be to buy something special for someone you care about or to spend every waking moment with the one you love, the decision is up to you.  With busy schedules, three active boys and a life of activity – my husband and I have found that two minutes with one another is a cherished commodity and one we take advantage of as much as possible.  Time with one another is our favorite gift and the reason why we buy each other watches for presents.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a HUGE watch addiction… so much so that I have more watches than I could ever use in a lifetime and I can’t live without a watch on so I even sleep with my watch.  I have my favorite brands, my favorite styles and since I’m someone who spends a lot of time in the ocean, I have my Diver’s watches – but I have absolutely fallen in love with a style that is not only timeless, it’s unique.  JORD watches are gorgeous wood watches created in different finishes and designs for every lifestyle.  Today I am sharing with you the JORD Sully in Black & Maple.  This watch has been a favorite of mine for days I want to dress up or those that I chose to be chill and lax.

JORD was derived from the desire for a timepiece that modeled their modern lifestyle.  Jord wanted to provide something that was sustainable, efficient, simple and also influenced by experiential living.  They wanted their watches to be able to tell more than time by creating a style that was guided by a deep appreciation for natural elements and modern design.  Wood is not just a component to each watch, but is the main feature.  Each watch is created with an intricacy and multiplicity of woods in the design to insure that each one is as distinctive as the owner.  Their methods were to ensure that each watch was not just worn, they were used.

Not only is each watch beautifully crafted, but they are packaged as show stoppers and each come in a gorgeous wooden box.  If the box alone didn’t make a statement for you, the watch enclosed within will surely make your jaw drop.  I have owned various watches over the years, from many high end brands and I have to say – Jord definitely takes the cake in packaging because I fell in love with the box before I even seen what was included inside.

Each watch ranges in cost between $129 and $295, the most expensive being the Dover which includes Koa wood.  That is what attracted me immediately to these watches since Koa is a prized wood here in Hawaii and I had my eyes on the Dover since the first day I heard about Jord.  I received the Sully in Black and Maple which is a gorgeous watch with blond and dark wood.  The time piece itself is absolutely gorgeous and retailing for just $139 – this watch makes a great gift for anyone (hint – hint, Father’s Day is just a few short weeks away).  Each watch is adjustable and if you provide your size to Jord, they can size your watch for you prior to shipping it out your way.

As I mentioned previously, I have the Sully.  The Sully series marries complimentary and contrasting woods giving this watch a vivid and varied tonal effect.  It has large face numbers and a cut out bezel to add to that playful and sporty look that you can use on a daily basis, but the watch itself is so pretty that this classically styled timepiece can be worn for any and every occasion.
Here are the stats:
  • Deployment Buckle with Push Button
  • Stratch Resistant Mineral
  • Citizen Miyota Quartz Movement (2035)
  • Case Width: 49mm
  • Case Thickness: 12mm
  • Lug Ends: 56mm
  • Band Length: 214mm
  • Band Thickness: 25mm
Each JORD watch is designed to be splash proof, but is not intended to be completely submerged in water.  Also, due to the nature of the wood chosen for each timepiece, colors and grain patterns may vary from photos.  Just like finger prints – while Jord watches a similar series, they have their own little finger print in the wood grain.

What’s great about JORD watches is that these time pieces are made in the United States and made of quality materials.  I love that there really is a watch for anyone – any size and style.  I picked a large face watch because I’m all about those large watches and I love dressing this watch up or down and it’s perfect for a casual day of lounging.

So – are you a watch addict like me?  I am absolutely in love with all of the styles and I’m itching to get a Dover for me and one for my hubby for Father’s Day.  He NEVER busy anything for himself and is my biggest supporter of my blog, so my goal is to pick one up for him soon.  I adore the Sully and I’m very impressed with how well it was made and how stylish it is.  If you are looking for a watch that’s definitely unique and offers you a style all its own – I definitely suggest you check out Jord.  If you have a special Dad in your life, I highly suggest you check this site out.

It’s no secret that when it comes to fashion, anything I wear or use must not only be functional but also comfortable.  Sometimes I feel like my laid back lifestyle has me too lax and often it can be a bit basic, but I love taking basics and turning them into something fun and fashionable.  I’m born and raised in Hawaii so most of my life you could find me in a bikini or bathing suit with board shorts and a surf board, but now that I’ve changed things up a bit, I try to add a little more flair to what has become comfortable.  While what I wear may be simple, consisting of mostly basics to allow for me to change up from time to time – I love to add handbags that will give me a sense of style and freedom at the same time.  Accessories can make or break a look easily so here is what I do to take a basic outfit and jazz it up a bit.  Here’s my plus size outfit featuring Miche Bag to compliment the look.

Check out my quick outfit video below or click here to watch directly on YouTube.

First, I start off with a basic look.  Today I have decided that I wanted to use one of my favorite black strapless dresses but have a little cover up for a fun and casual look.

  • Black Empire Waist Jersey Strapless Dress – Old Navy
  • Denim Vest with Cut sleeves – Forever21 Plus

Since Flip flops are pretty much the go to for most looks here in Hawaii, I decided that would be a great choice not only for comfort but also for style.  I decided to go with a platform/wedge style flip flop to add a dressier flare to the look

  • Black Flip Flops – Guess Sabell Platform Flip flops

No outfit is complete without some accessories and for me I wanted it to be simple, basic but still add a little flare. If you have been following this blog or my YouTube channel a while, then you know I’m pretty simple and usually will have the same type of necklace or watch for my daily style.  Today I switched up my watch and included something that would be fun and add a little bit of swagger to my look.

Last but not least – it’s all about the handbags.  It’s no secret that I’m a huge handbag fanatic… my husband can attest to that (teehee), and I’m always looking for the perfect bag to help accommodate all of my personal and mommy needs as well as be functional and stylish.  About 5 years ago I was introduced to Michebags and immediately fell in love with not only the quality – but the styles and the price.  Let’s just say that I love these bags so much that I own two different sizes and over 12 shells… ssshhh… don’t tell the pocket book. lol

Spring Fashion and Style - Plus Sized Outfit Featuring Miche Bag

Miche bag’s concept is easy… You purchase a base bag (in my case, this is the Prima base bag) and then you purchase a shell to go with it.  The idea was developed by a women who wanted to be able to change out her bag easily without having to pull all the contents of her bag out.  You simply pull your base bag out of your shell and put it in a new one and you are good to go.

  • Miche Prima Shell in Maria – a gorgeous cream and print bag with gold accents

Each bag is so easy to get in and out of to switch out you can easily go from day to night and it takes just seconds.  I am wearing my Miche bags pictured with the regular black handles and gold chain links to add to the gold accent.  These bags are not only functional, they are affordable.

Miche Prima Base bag: $29.99

Miche Prima Shell: Range between $40 and $100

Miche Accessories: Range between $9 and $20

If this bag is too large for you – do not worry,this is the largest size Miche carries but there are a variety of sizes available from their Petite, Classic and Demi.  Also, Miche offers different colors in their handles as well as their chains and Carabiners so you have endless options to switch up your style and preference.  Each strap, handle, carabiner and hardware is interchangeable with any of the shells and the shells are seasonal so you can expect to see new styles rolled out several times a year.  Fashionable and on-trend, Miche is definitely a great selection for those who love handbags and want to keep their look fresh.

Now – just because I have a really relaxed style, doesn’t mean you can’t jazz up a similar look with say a pair of strappy heels or wedges or even a larger necklace for a statement piece.  What I love about style is that it is just like makeup and it’s all about the individual and their preferences.
