With the festive season in full swing (hello 3 sleeps til Christmas!) we are often so busy, that planning outfits and taking pride in our appearance can sometimes take a back seat. I ‘m not sure about you, but my to-do list is already a mile long (and continuing to grow by the day!) so I am here to help you with some tips on how to put together simple, holiday season outfits thanks to JORD Wood Watches!
Keep it simple.
When you are rushing to put together an outfit, there is nothing worse than trying on a million different combinations, only to end up back at the beginning and choosing the very outfit you started with! Don’t over complicate things and trust your instincts. You pulled out that first outfit for a reason!
If you have numerous outings planned for the holiday season, prep your outfits in advance. Remove them from your closet, ensure they are clean and in good shape and put them in an easy to access spot. Any matching accessories can simply be placed over the hangers.
When you are spending the whole day out and about, the last thing you want to be worried about is being in uncomfortable clothing! We all have that top that doesn’t stay quite where it is supposed to, a dress that reveals a little more than we would like, and jeans that are a tiny bit too tight. I would suggest leaving these aside for the holiday period and save for less time-consuming outings. No one wants to be fussing with their clothes while trying to carve a turkey!
A stylish timepiece
Being on time is very important when trying to balance everything throughout the holiday season. The lovely folks over at JORD recently contacted me and allowed me to select one of their amazing timepieces. I chose the Frankie Zebrawood and Champagne and was so excited when it arrived! I now never leave home without it (I get SO many comments on it on a daily basis!) and love that it matches any outfit. Because it is so lightweight thanks to the beautiful wood it is made from, I don’t even notice it on my wrist! JORD have many other gorgeous timepieces available if oversized like mine is not your thing, and even have a range for the man in your life!
Mix and match
This is a philosophy I follow even when it is not the festive season. I tend to buy pieces that I can create many different outfits with by ensuring that they are compatible with existing items in my wardrobe. I do this by buying mostly black, white or grey pieces (and denim of course!) and will inject a few colours and prints as they come in and out style each season.
If you would like your very own JORD timepiece, I am giving one lucky reader the chance to win a $100 gift voucher to go towards the purchase of a watch! And that isn’t all – everyone that enters will receive a $25 gift voucher.
