cincinnati | summer style with JORD

have you noticed one of the major wardrobe trends for this summer? off the shoulder tops and dresses have made it’s way back into many women’s closest and i’m definitely not mad about it. this dress is from Old Navy…yeah you heard that right OLD NAVY! i paired it with my JORD watch that easily compliments my simple modern style. if you know me, i don’t wear jewelry much and i usually let the outfit do the talking but this watch has been in current rotation. i love adding masculine elements to my wardrobe and this watch, which is made of natural zebrawood and maple does that for me. JORD makes timeless peices and it was so hard for me to choose just one because they are all beautifully and uniquely designed.

our ceremony was fairly short, but the most meaningful part of the day for both of us. it was filled with unexpected emotions and so much love. having nate’s uncle officiate the ceremony made it really personal and we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. we have so much respect for him and his…
