Today marks the official start of summer. (Happy dance time!) I celebrated this transition with a quintessential, summer-tastic Hamptons beach day, decked out in bright colors, darling prints and a variety of textures. (Wood, pearls and gold leather – oh my!)
In the spirit of seasonal change, I decided to mix things up a bit by swapping out my regular watch for this summery, wood watch courtesy of JORD Watches. (I know – a wood watch! Who knew?!) This sleek watch has a mint face, which looks fantastic with everything. Plus, I am partial to all things green (especially this sea green/minty shade), so this pick was a no brainer. It is splash proof, and will be a staple for all future pool days. I added some interest by wrapping dainty seed pearls into a bracelet next to the watch. I love juxtaposing starkly contrasting materials, like the wood watch and delicate little pearls.
Finally, I stashed my essentials in an old straw tote wrapped with a printed scarf, proving that all things old can be made new again with a little accessorizing. (The bag is featured here as well.) I finished the look with my go-to pearl studs, oversized sunnies and metallic gold, block-heeled sandals (also worn here and here).
The day was filled with beachy adventures, poolside antics and a teensy bit of rosé. And thanks to my new watch, I was right on time for happy hour. 😉
I teamed up with the good people at JORD Watches to bring you this watch giveaway. (You’ll never miss wine o’clock again!) One winner will receive $100 toward the purchase of any wood watch, and all entries will receive $25 off their purchase. (So even if you don’t technically win, you still win. Don’t you love that?) There are a ton of different options to choose from for both men and women. (It took me awhile to select the one I am wearing here – the Frankie 35 series in dark sandalwood with a mint face – but the pretty color on the face won me over in the end.) The giveaway ends July 9 @ 11:59pm ET so don’t be late! 🙂 Enter Giveaway Here!
