Living the adventure lifestyle has been an adjustment... Especially for my wardrobe. Who wants to cut back on clothing and accessories? NOT this gal. The change in lifestyle has really made me focus on quality and versatility (all while still looking good of course). My accessories specifically has been a struggle for me. It's hard to find versatile pieces that can live the globetrotting life without falling apart, and still make me look good.
So I was especially excited when JORD Watches reached out to me and asked if I would try out one of their watches, and give it an honest review. JORD Watches sent me their FRANKIE 35 series piece in dark sandlewood & slate. Sleek and sophisticated, sexy and adventurous. Incredibly unique design with the dark sandlewood and the slate gray face. I'd never seen a watch quite like it before (and it's series name is Frankie?! For those of you who don't know, I call my bus Frankie. Quite a happy coincidence). So right off the bat I gave it a 10/10 in the looks department, but I wasn't about to give it an official stamp of approval without really putting it to the test. So, I brought it to Iceland. Naturally.
After two weeks of trekking around the entire island of Iceland, I can honestly say, I am making my JORD watch a staple in my accessory collection. It was durable, light, and never got in the way. Not to mention it's unique and adventurous look is definitely my style. I was a bit worried about how the wood wristband would hold up, but the wood is treated so nicely there's not a scratch on it. The downside to this watch is that it's not water resistant. It's "splash proof", but there were a couple occasions where I had to be mindful not to ruin it. Other than that, I absolutely love it. Not only is it a great adventure watch, but it also makes me look put together, even when I've been climbing glaciers and car camping.
Overall I find my JORD to be beautiful, durable, and most importantly versatile. I can wear it hiking in Iceland or sipping a glass of wine while on a date in downtown Boston. If you're thinking of checking out their pieces and maybe getting one for yourself, first check out the giveaway below!
