STYLE: The Essentials with AYR and Jord Watches

Over the last few years I have been trying to invest in classic, timeless pieces of clothing that will always be in style. While on this mission, I found out about a newer label, AYR, the sister company to Bonobos. AYR stands for All Year Round. The label describes themselves as “a label for women who can’t be labeled.” AYR’s goal was to create “a line of pieces that takes you from work to play, season to season, year after year.” Well…MISSION ACCOMPISHED!

I instantly fell in love mission and their AYR Essentials collection. I want to own everything!  Recently, I have accumulated several AYR pieces, and each one is better than the next. I wear the Arrow Pant and Rumpled Blazer to work at least once or twice a week. My next investment will be one of their gorgeous coats!

For date night or jeans day at the office, I love the Clean Shirt paired with The Skinny (otherwise known to E as my uniform). The Skinny is the most comfortable and luxurious jean you will ever wear. They are so soft! AYR is so confident that you will love their jeans that they have a home try on program. They will send you three pairs of The Skinny for $1 each. You have a week to try them on and then you send back what doesn’t fit! They only charge you for what you keep.

Just last week, E and I wandered into New York City for dinner and (of course) I was dressed in my uniform. Instead of my usual Adidas kicks, I decided to take it up a notch with some killer nude sandals and a fun clutch.

The final touch to any outfit of mine is a watch. I can’t leave home without one! I wore my new Ely Series Green Sandalwood and Maple Jord Watch. I am always intrigued by new and interesting watches. When I was approached by Jord to style one of their designs, I jumped at the chance! All Jord watch bands are made of 100% REAL wood. I had never owned or worn a wood watch before. I am now a convert! The watch has great natural look to it. It works with ANY outfit!

    First, let me say, I LOVE this outfit. I wear a similar outfit often and it’s such a classic. You look awesome! Second, I am definitely going to check out AYR. Love what you have to say about them. Also, the fact that they send you three pairs of jeans to try on for $1 each?! Hello, genius! Why don’t more companies do this? Oh, I also am in love with my skinnies. When there was a “rumor” they were going out of style, I almost had a full on melt down. Okay, maybe I am being a *little* dramatic, but like you, they are part of my uniform! Thanks for this lovely post!

      OMG thank you! You should definitely try AYR – I love them. And skinny jeans are never going out of style! Not if we have anything to say about it anyway!
