Last Thursday I redirected to and while that was successful, I managed to lose most of my comments on recent posts as well as the search function on my blog. Reading your comments is one of my favorite things about blogging! If you commented last week and I have not responded, your comment is somewhere in cyberspace and I’m still working with Disqus on getting them remigrated.

Have you heard of JORD Watches? The name JORD is Swedish for earth, soil and land. JORD designs timepieces that model modern lifestyles. Jord designers, artists and watch smiths have a deep appreciation for both natural elements and modern design and wood is the main feature of their gorgeous timepieces. When they asked me to do a product review, I immediately said yes and chose the Ely in natural green and maple. This understated and effortless watch is so unique, I received compliments on it all day long!

 JORD wood watch review

JORD offers watches for both men and women in a variety of natural and sustainably sourced wood from across the globe. Their collections feature bamboo, maple, sandalwood, blackwood, cherry, zebrawood, and koa woods. With Father’s Day coming up, a JORD watch would be the perfect gift!

Watch Gift Ideas

Now for my outfit…Chicago had beautiful weather over the weekend and I was happy to have bare legs again! This sporty dress was a holiday gift that has been waiting to be worn. I love the varsity style and the best part is the side zippers! I kept this look simple and added a necklace, Converse and my JORD watch. This dress would also look great belted with sandals for summer and with boots in the fall. What do you think of the sporty dress trend?

Guest Co-Host:


Delilah from Pumps & Studz is our co-host this week. Delilah is married and has a daughter. She loves anything sparkly, a great bargain and lipstick. She talks about what it is like to be middle aged and a plus size blogger and how it hasn’t stopped her from showing her true style. She blogs about fashion and her blog name describes her fashion style, which ranges from pumps (classic) to trendy with a bit of an edge (studz). Be sure to stop by and visit Delilah, so you can get to know her better!


We will each select a Top Two every week… visit both hosts blogs to see if YOU were chosen. 

My pick this week is Riva of Riva La Diva and her gorgeous turquoise dress. And what makes this beautiful lace dress even better is that she made it! Check out her blog for more fashion DIY’s!
