Since my teens, I’ve enjoyed completing my basic outfits with accessories. I never leave my house without earrings, a watch, a ring, and a good looking structured bag. It doesn’t matter if I’m wearing a T and faded jeans. If my accessories are on point, I feel confident and put together.
On Saturday, we visited Blowing Rock, NC, for the Art in The Park event. The town has the most beautiful flowers!
Our reason for being in Blowing Rock was to enjoy dinner at Chef & Somm. We arrived later in the day. It was about 75°F, so I wore a lightweight navy blazer, which is a couple of years old, similar here. My cami is here. My jeans are here. The shoes are here.
These lovely women were passing by and stopped to chat for a moment. We became instant friends! They were so elegant and gracious.
Accessories are integral to my daily looks. I select a pair of earrings, a ring, and a watch to complement whatever I am wearing. A handbag, shoes and sometimes a belt are part of the package. I have been carrying my Bella Teddy Blake bag a lot this summer because it goes with everything. The bag is here.
The last three watches I’ve purchased have been rubbish, so I didn’t even share them with you.
This Nordgreen watch is one that I can confidently share! The quality and style are impeccable, and it is very comfortable to wear. The clasp is secure but easy to use. I chose the Native 36mm Silver with a silver mesh band. The bands are changeable, so I chose the gray leather band to use in the winter months. Straps are available in thirteen colors as well as vegan options, mesh, and nylon. There are approximately 100 different combinations between $170 to $215.
Nordgreen watches (here) are designed by the world-famous designer of Bang & Olufsen, Jakob Wagner. One of the reasons I am drawn to this style is the minimal classic design. I can layer one or more of my silver bracelets with it for a more dressed up look. Alone, it elevates the look of even a T and jeans. Nordgreen is offering you a discount code (SUSAN15)!
Each watch supports a social cause in the fields of health, environment, and education. You decide to which of the three organizations you would like to donate. Each watch comes with a unique serial number and identification code to chose your donation on the CSR website here.
My watch and the other band were gifts from Nordgreen. All words and styling are my own. Referral and affiliate links within my posts may generate a small commission for me.
We can always find something to celebrate!
The meals we’ve enjoyed at Chef & Somm are always delightful. We started with warm house-made Focaccia bread and olive tapenade.
Mr. Mickey had the crab and alfredo pasta.
I shared my halibut and vegetables with him. Delicious!
Later this week, I’ll share additional, easy casual looks created with classic clothing items, elevated with great accessories. Effortless elegance always works for me!
