Orlando Staycation with Jord Wooden Watches
Hello all! Welcome to today’s post!
As Summer temperatures rise and school is in break, we often are planning where we will take our next “Instagram-worthy” vacation. Sometimes though, we do not have the time to get away to another city or country, making it a little more difficult to enjoy our summer vacay. I’m here to tell you that there’s a solution: why not turn a vacation into a staycation, or in my case, an Orlando staycation? It doesn’t matter what city you live in, there are always great hotels that you can find deals on and the best part of all? You can live the tourist life without having to spend a lot! As a resident of sunny Orlando, home of Universal Studios and Disney, there are amazing hotels all around me and it’s a great way to enjoy the city tourists love to visit all-year round!
I decided to stay in one of my favorite hotels and showcase how to style a day to night look along with one of my favorite wardrobe staples of the moment,

When I want to relax at a hotel, my day look consists of a bathing suit, a great magazine/book, and sunnies to lounge by the pool. Most importantly, I love having a wooden watch that doesn’t sacrifice style while I soak in the sun’s rays. I chose the Jord Frankie Dark Sandalwood & Emerald watch due to its vibrant, big emerald green face that creates a great contrast to its dark, chic sandalwood band (Fun Fact: Sandalwood is the second most expensive wood in the world; talk about luxe!).
As the sun goes down, there’s nothing greater than sipping piña coladas at the bar while listening to a live band play some tunes in the background. On occasions like this, I like to take my Summer dress out to play and be stylish while not losing comfort. Moreover, I love the fact that my watch has a wooden finish, giving it a great versatility and adaptation to any background setting as well as any wardrobe piece. If it’s with friends, family or a partner, there’s nothing better than spending time with loved ones, laughing and enjoying a great Summer night. You can make it even greater by getting matching watches or buying different styles for both men and women.
When Jord reached out to me for a collaboration, I wanted to do something that would showcase a Summer outfit without doing a typical “Summer outfit” and thought: why not enjoy the surroundings of the great city I live in? Sometimes we need a reminder that we have to appreciate the place we live in every day and take advantage of that. The reason why I loved partnering with Jord watches is the simple statement they have on their website under “Telling More Than Time: the value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time”. In today’s day and age, we get easily distracted with our phones, not really making us enjoy the moment because we are too busy trying to capture it instead of living it. You see, we love the idea of “we have all the time in the world”, but that’s just a wrong misconception. Make sure to capture moments, but also learn to live in them. Cherish the people surrounding you at the time and look around you, decide what to do with the time that is given to you.
