Fall is finally here! If you’re a teacher or mom (or both), you’ve probably made it through the back-to-school madness and started settling into the routine. I love October because I feel like I can finally come up for air after getting my classes off to a good start, and bonus, it’s apple cider donuts and pumpkin spice everything season! Crisp, chilly evenings mean the cozy sweaters and boots come out of the closet, and there might even be some chili in a crock pot. Even though our schedules are crazy-busy, time seems to slow down as the season sets in. Speaking of time, to celebrate this beautiful season, I’ve teamed up with Jord Wood Watches to host a giveaway! More about that below.
I absolutely LOVE Jord watches! Not only are they beautifully crafted of different types of real, sustainable wood, but the quality and durability is excellent. I also love that Jord is headquartered in St. Louis, MO, which is not so far from where I live. This is my second partnership with Jord Wood Watches (read about my first Jord watch here), and I am so grateful to have another beautiful wood watch that complements my lifestyle AND my style life.
Note: I was given this Jord watch in exchange for sharing it with my followers and hosting a giveaway. Also, some of the links in this post are affiliate links. Shopping via these links means I may earn a small commission at no cost to you. As always, all opinions expressed here are 100% my own. I only share brands and products I love and think you will, too.
Lately I haven’t been wearing much jewelry at all other than statement earrings now and then. However, the one accessory I try not to leave the house without is my Jord “Cassia” series watch (mine is the ebony and sable, but it also comes in walnut and vintage rose or olive and Aegean blue).
For one, it’s sleek and dark, meaning it goes with everything I wear. This fall I’ve been wearing lots of leopard prints and camo, as well as colors like mustard, olive, burgundy, and rust. The watch looks equally great with a comfy, cozy weekend outfit, trendier styles, and even classroom outfits.

Another reason I love wearing watches is that you can check the time without looking at your phone. You know how dangerous looking at that cell phone is — one minute you’re checking the time, and the next you’re cruising through Instagram stories. Plus, as a teacher, I always need to know how much time we have left in any given class to pace my lessons.
My Cassia is sleek enough to be worn to meetings, trainings, and parent-teacher conferences, but the large face gives it that element of on-trend fun that totally fits my style and makes it great for everyday, too. It’s smooth and comfortable (you know comfy’s my thing!), and luckily it’s also splash-proof, so no worries unless you totally submerge it, moms.
To me, fall fashion should be easy, comfortable, and cozy, right along with being stylish. When you are comfortable, you’re better able to bring cheer and comfort to those around you: a requirement for moms and teachers. Whether you’re decorating the house for fall, making dinner (or at least defrosting it – LOL) for the family, working inside or outside the home, or just enjoying the season, take some time to think about all of your blessings.
So about that giveaway…. I am so excited to announce that one lucky follower will win a $100 gift card to Jord Wood Watches!
