OOTD – Birds of a Feather feat. Jord

A photo of Tara's keys, a Jord Fieldcrest watch in Maple, and a sign that says

Hey there bow friends,

Today I’m doing a little summery outfit inspired by the Jord Fieldcrest watch in Maple*.  Ever since graduating I’ve been struggling with feeling adult.  Things like carrying a nice purse, wearing a nice watch, or dressing a little more put together feels so strange because I’m not feeling too adult.  A mini shopping trip with my mom and a cup of tea later and I have been feeling so much better.  I’m embracing the more grown up me as much I can and getting dressed up in little ways everyday has been helping my confidence a ton.

I like to pair it with this cute little friendship bracelet (Here’s some cute and similar ones 1, 2) and the Pandora Blue Leather Bracelet sans charms.

I always forget how much I love OOTDs and I want to get back into them.  What do you like to wear during the summer?  I have a hard time with keeping cool, keeping comfortable, and looking put together so I could use some advice.

We shall talk soon!

    I thought I was the only one who found it a little awkward trying to figure out what dressing more ‘adult’ looks like! You look great by the way, that watch is gorgeous! x
