Valentines Wrist Candy

February 7, 2019

Hello, February! I am so ready for all of the pink/red color combos and copious amounts of sugar that this month will bring (chocolate & champagne counts as a balanced breakfast right?). With Valentines Day coming up, I wanted to kick off the month with a little V-day inspired look and a giveaway (so keep reading to find out more!). I've partnered with JORD watches to showcase how you can style a watch with any outfit perfect for the month of love.

This look was inspired by my new favorite timepiece, the Sier Arcadia Rose Gold & White Marble Watch. I don't always wear watches, but when I do, I love to style them alongside some other fun wrist candy & get a little arm party going on (totally unintentionally channeling the most interesting man in the world right there). Wearing a classic style watch can really up the sophistication factor for any outfit - you just have to find one that matches your taste & vibe.

For this look, I wanted an outfit with some duality - something I could wear to brunch & coffee with gal pals in the A.M. (well, like 11:30. Ya girl does not do mornings well), but then turn right around & wear for a night out with the hubs.

We started our day at Frothy Monkey for said coffee (because my diet is 50% coffee after all). They have some great options there & always have a list of seasonal coffees, but my favorite is the Monkey Mocha (it has banana in it, so if you're not a fan of banana flavored stuff, opt for something a little less adventurous).

After finishing up there, it was time (haha) to cap off breakfast with some Julie Darling Donuts - also home of one of my favorite photo spots in town, the pink wall! This spot was perfect for showcasing my look, and really went with the whole Valentines theme.

I paired a red chiffon peplum top with a pair of my tried & true skinny jeans (I source a lot of my tops from places like TJ Maxx and Marshalls, so it's hard to find the exact top, but I've linked some similar styles for those of you interested). In keeping with the theme, I added a polka dot cupcake clutch and a pair of fun leopard booties. Ankle boots are one of those shoe styles that every girl should have in their wardrobe for the sheer versatility factor - they can go from day to night in minutes and are so easy to dress up or down.

The pink hair tie is actually my daughter's headband (that she refused to wear) and was a last minute decision to cover up the plain black rubberband holding my braid in place. After all, they say one baby's trash is another mom's stylish treasure. Wait, that's not how the saying goes, is it?

For accessories, I kept it simple to go with the style of the gorgeous JORD watch, so I didn't overdo it with other loud jewelry (just loud sunglasses. But I digress). I added a few simple bangles in purple & gold hues to play off the color palette, and just let the watch do all the talking.

I love the minimalist style of this watch. The rosegold is definitely on brand for me, and I love that the band is interchangeable. The watch comes with both the classic white leather band seen here, as well as a rosegold metal mesh band. It's incredibly easy to swap out the bands with their quick pin system (it just snaps in & out of place), so if I wanted to take this outfit from day to night and change up some of my accessories, I'd swap out my booties for some fabulous stilettos, change out the leather for the rosegold band, and trade my clutch for a cocktail!

Want to get your hands on a watch of your own? Or pick one up for your best galentine or maybe a classic wooden style for your significant other? Valentines is just around the corner after all, so if you're still searching for the perfect gift, this giveaway is a chance to score it! I've partnered with JORD to host a giveaway! One lucky winner will recieve a $100 credit towards their purchase of any of the watches in the JORD collection.
