Pedals and Petals Feat. Jord Wood Watch

I’ve got wind in my hair, sun in my face,  flowers in my basket, and a beautiful cora maple and lavender wood watch on, must be Spring time!

Hello darlings! 

 Busy times hit with all the graduations in my family, one happening later today as stated here and I'll share pics with you. Of course I will but first I'll share this quote with you...

 "Jewelry isn't really my thing but I've always got my eyes on people's watches" - Clive Owen

Just like Clive, I know you've got your eyes on my watch so I'll tell you all about it. I've never been one to keep secrets from you afterall, :)).

The Watch
This impeccable wood watch that fits perfectly with the aesthetics of today's look and kindly sent to me from Jord Wood Watches has a lovely lavender face that totally adds interest. We all know how much I love everything in that color scheme. Ha! It's safe to say that this perfect little piece not only kept me punctual but also added a colorful oomph to my look. 

I have always been a lover of all things cherry wood but this maple watch is very striking and promises to be very durable as most maple products are. This is a huge plus for me as I tend to be just a tad clumsy sometimes and don't have to worry about dents on the wood from dropping it. I plan on showing this watch a lot of love so I also won't have to worry about scratches and scuffs from wear and tear.

Do I love it? You bet I do! No scratch that. Ummm, I LOVE IT!!! You? I know you'll love it too so...

If charm, reliability, good quality, a flawless sweep, and precision timing amongst other great qualities get your juices flowing as they do mine, then be sure to stop by They offer both men's and women's watches in rich wood tones, each in a league of it's own. The watches will make great birthday presents, 'just because' gifts and even treats for one's self. Wait a minute! Wait a minute!! Fathers Day is just around the corner! I honestly couldn't think of a better way to put a smile on a certain dad's face. As always, thank me later now!

Pedals and Petals
I don’t know about you but I couldn’t be happier about the spring summer sunshine that is now seemingly here to stay (fingers and toes crossed). Go out and embrace it, smell the roses or better still the lilacs, break out your brightest /happiest prints or just your good ole whites and dare I add go out for a bike ride spinning in the sunshine. Down that trail you almost forgot existed. Blissful riding! Oh! And while out there, enjoy a beautiful sunset. Glorious! 

One of my mothers day gifts, this bike has stolen my heart. I had to drop tons of hints (eye rolling emoji). Okay, okay, I'll be nicer and word it differently. I snuck in subtle suggestions about a bike meeting my need to be outdoors more often. It worked! 

I took it out for a spin and folks admired my lilac/lavender bike in it’s Spring glory. Yeah Spring may be almost over but beautiful flowers are still trending. The fresh cut flowers beautifully arranged by the amazing florists at looked charming and delightful in so many ways. Sylvia's Florist offers gorgeous blossoms that will fill your home with their heavenly fragrance. Can you smell mine through your screen? Come on, take a sniff! Hehe. 

If you need flowers for birthdays, sympathy, put a smile on some special person’s face or just because, be sure to visit them. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and they offer same day delivery. Out of state works just great as they'll take the weight off your shoulders, meeting floral needs in the entire continental US. (I cant believe I snuck in those rhyming words, #kinderteachercomethrough).

  8. Even when you do casual you do it in grand style. great post darling, the bike is so you and that watch is beautiful. The floral arrangement is superb too. xo

  9. Love your watch choice! Amazing off the shoulder top!

  10. The lavender big is really cute. The entire post screams spring. The flowers are gorgeous, your outfit is stunning and you're beautiful. What more can we ask for. Great post.

  11. Wonderful look!!! Great photos! Happy sunday!:))


  12. Such a great post! Thanks for sharing and have an awesome new week!

  13. That watch is really divine....There is something so eye pleasing about Jord wood watches. This one is so perfect for you because it has that purple touch that goes so well with your signature purple lip. You look so pretty! Flawless make up and I do like the long hair on you (but I love your pixie too!).

    ....and how cute is that bike? Flowers, long hair, bike, wood watch...something just screams Summer about this combo!!!!

    What a romantic outfit! You did such a great job of making a casual outfit more feminine and chic. I absolutely love that white blouse and those jeans look great on you. Perfect wedges as well....and may I say a good choice. Wedges are always a comfy choice and they basically do the same thing for us as heels but they don't give us nearly as much trouble ( no worrying aout where we might step). Plus, one can't really wear high heels when's pretty cool you managed to do it with wedges.

    Congrats once again on all graduations happening in your family! This must be a very happy (if busy) time!!! Yaay!!!!

  14. Dear Idu, for sure I love your watch and thanks a lot for offering such a great giveaway! So sorry you are so busy but your look is perfect and adorable - love also the bike <3 Can't stop watching you with this hairstyle, so wonderful!

  16. Great quote by Clive! What a gorgeous watch! I love how it coordinates with that stylish pastel bike of yours I have a Jord watch as well that I've been wearing more since the weather has gotten warmer. Don't you just love how lightweight they are! Happy Sunday!

    Thank you for dropping by and commenting... it is difficult to find out someone that you have known for many and I mean many years believes in things that there are somethings is life that you have to stand up against... This coming from me who believes is free thinking... that's why this was too much for me xox... it's sad when we can't trust more people...

    Enjoy your bike, I hope you get to use it a lot... I remember having so much fun when I owned one many years ago xox
