I can't believe last week was the first time I ventured to the good ol' British seaside this year. With the summer we've been having, being attacked by seagulls, whilst scoffing fish and chips has been the last thing on my mind. Hopefully this Indian summer will be arriving pretty sharpish.  But I popped along to the coast last weekend for a break that was very much needed. A few days away full with lots of laughs, beautiful weather and masses of good food is always a cracking tonic!

I took it as an opportunity to show off my snazzy new wooden watch. I have such a soft spot for a good quality watch so jumped at the chance to own a Jord watch when they got in touch. I opted for a small boyfriend style with a red wine coloured wood - the Cora in Purpleheart and Pearl. What a beauty eh? It looks so classy and elegant. Definitely a conversation starter as two people commented on it when I wore it this day. It's a piece I can see myself constantly having on rotation! Have a peek below to see what other watches they have on offer.
