My summer wardrobe consists of very basic things for the most part. I live in athletic wear or Target v-neck tees and shorts, and I have a handful of tank dresses, rompers, and skinny jeans when the occasion calls for a little something more. When the kids and I are busy doing summer things, comfort is key! Simplicity is clearly the name of the game for me when it comes to style. I have recently discovered that simple accessories can make a big difference in such a simple outfit. I love being able to take my favorite plain tee dresses and dress them up or down, and they will be great transitional pieces for fall. With the addition of a kimono, scarf, cardigan, or denim jacket, these basic staples in my closet can be transformed from easy summer to effortless fall outfits.
I also have a newfound love for accessories. For the longest time, I didn’t wear a lot of jewelry just because the kids were little and I was nursing. Necklaces would get pulled, bracelets got in the way when I would change diapers, and earrings? They never lasted very long! Now that the kids are older, I have branched out in the accessories department.
My most recent addition to my accessories haul is this beautiful JORD Frankie Koa & Ash watch. I am a sucker for anything gray and this completely fits the bill. It’s neutral enough to go with everything in my closet, and I haven’t worn a watch in a long time, so it’s nice to have one again! I wore it to the Chicago Premium Outlet mall one day last week with a friend and I was asked three times where I got this watch! I love that not only is it gorgeous and goes with everything in my closet, but it’s definitely a statement piece. It’s unique, lightweight, and comfortable to wear. I love that if something happens to it, I have a 1 year limited warranty, and it has mineral scratch resistant glass, making it the perfect fit for my lifestyle as well.
Pattern mixing is another new favorite thing of mine, however, I still like to play it fairly safe. No matter what, my JORD watch goes with everything so I can be as creative as I want to be with the items in my closet, and still wear this fun watch and not be overdone.

Brandon usually has something to say about my clothing choices because sometimes I go outside the box a little but he absolutely loves this watch. In addition to the other women’s watches, they have amazing men’s watches too, so I might have to keep that in mind for him as a gift someday. Shhhh! JORD watches come beautifully packaged and ready for gift giving as well, taking the guess work out of gift for a person that is hard to buy for.
For now, the tee and shorts wardrobe is going to be pretty strong in my repertoire, but thanks to my JORD watch, I am still unique and on trend no matter what!
