Living only a little over an hour from the breathtaking city of Carmel by the Sea, sometimes makes us take it for granted. This last trip we took made us realize just how lucky we are and how special Carmel really is.
We took this trip with our very close high school friends, Nate and Jaime, and their adorable and vivacious three year old, Olivia. It also happens that Olivia and Kolton go to the same preschool, and play very well together. Nate’s aunt owns a beautiful, Tuscan style home in Carmel, and allowed us to spend a long weekend getaway there.
I knew that Carmel would be the perfect place to wear my gorgeous new watch from JORD® Wooden Watches. With the rustic atmosphere of Carmel and the gorgeous dark wood on my watch, I was dying to flaunt it!
When I first discovered JORD Watches, I had never seen a real wooden watch before, so I was intrigued. I fell in love with the Cora series and had to have the Zebrawood and turquoise face! After all, turquoise is mine and my husband’s birthstone and one of my favorite colors!
Upon receiving my watch, the first thing I did was use the wood refinish and cloth provided to me to refinish and clean my watch. I then followed the simple instructions to adjust the time. Since this watch is automatic, I will never need to have the battery changed and I love how you can see the gears moving inside the face.
My favorite thing about this watch has been wearing it and styling it! The colors make it go with so many different outfits and accessories, and it is just perfect for the upcoming fall and winter seasons! Having two little ones, it is always important for me to feel comfortable while chasing them around and playing outside, but also feel confident and pretty. This watch is the best of all worlds. It is lightweight and very versatile.
In Carmel, we took long walks with the kids, enjoying the scenery and lush landscape. I loved having my watch with me. It is so lightweight that I hardly knew it was on, but I didn’t have to be distracted by my cell phone. I like to keep my phone put away as much as possible when out with my little ones, and this beautiful watch has helped make this possible. And of course, I get to look stylish while doing it. We were able to enjoy the gorgeous scenery and take in all of the natural beauty of Carmel by the Sea.
