His & Her Jord Wood Watches

His & Her Jord Wood Watches

I’ve always had a fascination with woods, there is something magical and mysterious about being surrounded by trees, well to me anyway, I do adore seeing sun rays peaking through and the shadows that the leaves create. There is a peacefulness when in the woods that I just adore so I loved that for the first ‘His & Her’ blog post featuring my lovely husband was in the middle of our local woods to showcase these gorgeous Jord wood watches.

It was fun shooting with my husband, granted he takes most of my style posts, but I loved that he agreed to have a little fun and pose next to a tree, I think it helped that he has a new watch to wear, it is his love of timepieces that has got me addicted, I think between us we have more than 30 watches, crazy right!!!

My Jewellery Habits

My Jewellery Habits

Is rotating your favourite jewellery pieces stuck in a rut or just sticking to what you love? That’s the question I’ve been asking myself recently as my jewellery needs have been very similar day-by-day of late. I’m not complaining, but it got me wondering about my own jewellery habits that I thought I would share how my jewellery look comes together. 

First up, I always start with my arm candy, I have a lot of love for bracelet stacks, pretty watches, and statement bangles. The starting point is generally, silver or gold, nine out of ten times it is silver, just my preference, but as soon as that’s sorted it guides me down which pieces to pick out first. Normally that first piece is my watch, I have a lot, probably too many but I do like to mix this piece up, whether it is changing the strap on my current fav, Shore Projects, I do love the metallic and mint green ones, or going for something a little smarter like the Citizen Eco-Drive, and then I can decide which bracelets will work best with my outfit.

Introducing: Shore Projects Watches

shore-projects-watch-4

I am fast becoming a little bit of a watch hoarder, collector, wearer **delete as appropriate**, I blame my fiancé, watches really are his thing. My obsession started as a way to frame my bracelet stacks, to add a splash of colour to an outfit, or a touch of bling. Basically I couldn’t find one watch to do the job, which apparently is weird, well according to one of my friends who insists that you only need one watch, as it just tells the time!!! Which got me thinking is there really one watch out there that could work for any occasion, any look, any mood?

Well strangely I think I might have actually found a watch to coordinate with nearly any outfit, excluding a black-tie ball of course, a cool new British watch brand, Shore Projects, which has created a gorgeous and fun collection of timepieces inspired by the seaside.

What is so great about this brand, other than the fact they are British, is that they have created four classic watch faces, all named after seaside resorts, which can easily be transformed with a quick swap of the watch strap. So one day you could wear vibrant yellow, the next girlie pink, then the fun and flirty mint green and then another day could be the gorgeous blue pastel hue. You will never get bored of this brand.

I think the reason this brand works is the classic design of the watch face, I do love large round faces, especially in brushed silver, it really is timeless. My favourite, seen above, is Poole, brushed silver with a white face, Whitstable is the same silver finish but with a black face, and then there are two brushed gold options, Portland with the white and St Ives with the charcoal face.

It is the quick and easy strap mechanism, trust me it takes seconds to change, which makes it easy to do a daily swap on the straps that makes this a brand to watch. I have always loved an element of customisation to my look without actually doing much in the way of DIY and Shore Projects gets that with the eight classic colours to choose from, and then the added bonus of regular additions, I am loving the summer polka dot collection, and I am hoping for some metallic hues for day-to-night vibes in future collections.

Shore Projects watches, which come with one strap cost £85 each, additional straps cost £15 each from the classic collection, and £20 for the polka dot line. I already have my eye on adding the Ocean Blue Polka Dot and the classic Orange straps, I will soon have one for every day of the week!!!

Have you discovered Shore Projects watches? What do you think of changing your watch straps every day?

**Shore Projects gifted me the watch and straps, but I chose the colours, and as always I wouldn’t rave about something I didn’t like**
