On Blueberry Time

Top: Gap
Shorts: LOFT (in pink)
Watch: c/o JORD

I was a watch person in high school. Drifted between leather band watches from Fossil to giant Baby G watches (they were popular!). I remember feeling naked without my watch on. And asking for a new style every single Christmas and birthday. But then I developed a metal allergy and wearing a watch with a stainless steel back and a metal clasp started to give me a rash and was generally uncomfortable. I think it has been about 8 years since I've worn a watch on my wrist. 

When this JORD wood watch arrived, I was so thrilled to find it to be almost entirely metal-free. The maple wood covers even the back of the watch that presses against the wrist, and the metal on the clasp is minimal and hasn't bothered me at all. I've been loving wearing this on miniature adventures like blueberry picking in the hot summer sun, or as an accessory to my work outfits. It takes me back to a time when a watch was my primary accessory. 

FYI, Portlanders, the blueberry and raspberry picking is going strong right now! Get out there and get smoothie supplies and some big buckets of berries!
