Hello Everyone! I hope this passed week has been a great one for all of you. Thank you so much for all the kind words you have given me, as we continue to celebrate 3 years of mrdombaza.com all month long. Time surely does fly! Can you believe it's already the 2nd week of February? I'm trying to stay in the moment more and cherish the time i'm given. But as I said in last month's final post, I feel as if time is going by too fast. I guess I just have to live in the moment and cherish what I can right? I was lucky that Jord Wood Watches reached out to me to partner up and showcase one of their beautiful watches from their winter collection. I'm going to break this blog up into sections as usual, but first lets talk about Jord!
I was so honored when Jord reached out to me to team up and create a post around their Dover Olive & Acacia watch. I've always wanted to team up with an amazing watch company, I'm lucky that my first partnership is with Jord. If you don't know about Jord, heres a few things you should know from my perspective. Jord creates beautiful and modern time pieces for men and woman. When I first put on my watch from Jord I atomically felt I had the power to control the time I felt was slipping through my fingers. I've been saying this a lot since the year started, time is going by too fast. When I think of Jord, I think about what I said earlier, I've gotta cherish the time I'm given daily. Jord's motto is something similar to that, "Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than that". I feel as if watches from Jord tell more than time. If you look at the details of the watch closely, you'll see someones design, effort, passion, and time that was put in to making a beautiful watch like the Dover Olive & Acacia. When I think of all that, I think of life. We design our own life, we work hard to pursue our passion, and we put in the time and effort. A timepiece should reflect that. It should reflect our lives in classic yet modern way. A watch from Jord does just that. Time is precious, life is fragile, make the moments bigger than the seconds, minutes, and hours on a clock. Let your watch reflect how precious time means to you. If you want a Jord watch of your very own, I'm pleased to tell you all I'm having my first GIVEAWAY.

When thinking about this outfit and building it around this special watch, I wanted this shoot to not only reflect the watch, but reflect my own personal winter style. We are in the middle of a storm here in California. I was lucky enough to shoot this whole look on a day where things settled down for a few hours. Green and brown is one of my favorite combinations of colors. Knowing that this beautiful wood watch had to be paired with an equally deserving outfit, I automatically thought of a green and brown combo from top to bottom. To top off this outfit I'm wearing an olive green fedora from Urban Outfitters. I have a thing for hats, you all should know that by now. I thought it was fitting for this outfit to have a hat tie it all together. I'm lucky green is my favorite color, because It made it so much easier to fall in love with this green Calvin Klein sweater. I love CK, i'm a HUGE CK fan. When I found this sweater I knew it was one of the missing pieces to complete this outfit. From there I had a pretty easy time styling the rest of the outfit. Underneath the sweater, my button dress shirt was the perfect match for the sweater and the watch. If you look closely you'll see the collar of the shirt has A branch design. It's a little nod to the wood of the watch I'm wearing. I like little details like that because it adds a little flavor to make outfits like this pop more. I wasn't about to walk around SF wearing 2 layers, I would freeze to death if I did that. I found this coat at Macy's made by INC. I thought the gray color was the perfect way to add another flavor to this outfit. Not only is the coat very warm and fitting, it compliments the watch. I've said it before and i'll say it again, Ralph Lauren is such an american staple. To honor this great nation where Jord watches are made, I chose to wear a classic pair of pants and olive green socks from US Polo. For me it's the little colors and details that can make an outfit like this really stand out. Lastly, my shoes are from Giorgio Brutini. The design of the shoes compliments the watch and overall look. It is the perfect final piece to complete an outfit like this. From the color of the pants to the color of the socks, it all reconnects with the top portion of this outfit and of course the watch. When I create different combinations and outfits I think of it like a rotating clock. You can try many different colors and styles but you will always end up right at the start just like a clock resets every 24 hours.
I hope you guys like the premise of this shoot and outfit. I had so much fun spending the whole day in SF with my Jord watch creating new memories with this beautiful timepiece. I want to thank Jord for giving me the opportunity to wear one of their beautiful watches with my very own style. I hope you guys enter my giveaway below this post. I will also include a link for men and woman's watches, and the watch i'm wearing. Make sure to enter as soon as possible! I'm excited for you guys to have a chance to win an awesome giftcard so you can get a special timepiece like the one I have. I'll see you guys Saturday with my 2017 Valentines Day outfit. Time is precious, Time is all I have, Time is all we have. Keep moving forward and make the most of the time we are given. We never know what tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year has in store for us. Time will tell.
