The Perfect Minimalist Accessory with JORD Wood Watches
Last weekend we drove out to our local Christmas tree farm and hunted for the perfect tree for our new farmhouse. It is always so nice to get outside in amongst the evergreens, whether you are buying a tree or not, if not only because it smells so heavenly! It was not until we had moved to Texas about five years ago that we had ever bought a real Christmas tree. We had always had a plastic tree; that's what I remember decorating growing up. When we moved, we left our plastic tree behind, and decided that trying a real tree might be nice! I had a cat growing up that absolutely loved plants and having a live tree in the house might have just made her go mad. We shall see how our new kittens enjoy the tree... in fact, I am watching them right now paw at the lower branches and sharpen their claws on the trunk. Are we in for an adventure? Probably! Ha!
The tree farm that we go to is so nice! All of the trees are priced the same. We love that! We also love that we are able to support a local farm. After having live trees for the past five years, we've learned that they are wonderful not only for scent and appearances, but they're also recyclable and can act as a great home and feeder for birds in the winter, carbon for your compost pile, or kindling for your fire. We've been considering growing our own Christmas trees on the farm, just for personal use, as well!
Off we went to hunt for the perfect tree... Visiting the tree farm is a wonderful excuse to put your best dress on and grab some photos with the family. Is there really any better winter setting that a tiny forest of evergreens? I don't think so! We had hoped for a little touch of snow, but were also pleasantly surprised at the warm weather we experienced. This has been a strange December so far when it comes to temperature! I was excited to see a message from JORD Wood Watches pop up in my inbox within the past weeks. I have worked with them before and am a big fan of their gorgeous wood watches. It is such a conversation piece whenever I wear it! As someone with sensitive skin, I don't often wear jewelry or accessories. I also just prefer to not be flashy! Wearing wood has made such a difference for my skin; wearing metal like earrings, chain necklaces, or charm bracelets makes my skin turn bright red. These watches are made absolutely beautifully. I am wearing the Hyde in Walnut + Black.
After writing a few posts on creating my minimalist wardrobe, I had quite a few of you asking where my favorite places to shop were. JORD is definitely one of them! They have a beautiful selection of minimalist style watches for both men and women that you have to check out. Now is the perfect time to add one to your holiday wishlist!
We picked out a gorgeous White pine. My mom would have preferred a Fraser fir, but we were having a hard time finding one that was full enough. I suppose we were a little late to pick out our tree - December 2nd! My goodness. The nice thing about this farm, too, is that you can tag your tree and come back to cut it down. That can be so preferable if you want a head start right after Thanksgiving! Perhaps next year we'll be a little quicker. I love that photo of my dad and Tad after they cut the tree. It looks a bit like a vintage photo to me, if Tad would lose the puffy vest! Ha! He loves wearing it so much, I just can't say no. His little flannel shirt and pants are from our partner Fin & Vince. My linen dress and jacket are by Linenfox. The sweet creator behind these clothes inspired her autumn/winter after me! It was the sweetest surprise in the entire world. I mean, who does that?! You can find the Kay shirt here, named after me. I have one in stripes and absolutely love it!
