Loving Life after 50

Classic Office Wear and how Not Another Tie turned into Gifting my Guy

I had totally planned on today being a wordless Wednesday, a day where I would just let the pictures stand on their own but my blog kind of like me is just never without words. Now that doesn’t mean they are profound words or words to change the world, they are just words that are generated from thoughts and actions and meant to help you understand the me behind the scene.


Tuesday was supposed to be a meeting day but I was still feeling to miserable so I postponed it but only after I went with a total “office appropriate style”… which is a good thing because it made me realize I have not worn this Vanheusen Suit yet this year… I stuck with the neutral look with an Old Navy Plaid Blouse and jazzed it all up with a leopard belt and boots.

Linking with:  Poppy  and  Pampers & Pearls,Victoria and shop my closet   cappuccino and Whims  and  Pumps and Push Ups and   Classic yet Trendy,Pastries and Pumps OnKimba, , and The Wednesday Pants ( Style Hunter) Brilliant 

Soooo enough about the outfit lets talk a little bit about my tie story….

Jord Watch. whom I am relatively positive you have heard about by now, and if not it means you have not been reading my blog very long because I am pretty sure I mention them at least every other post.. well Jord Watch has come out with a limited edition Delmar just in time for Father’s Day and lucky me was offered a chance to “test Drive” one.  Well knowing how much Kent loves his Sully in green Sandlewood, I thought he would love a custom Delmar.  It probably took me hours to figure out what I wanted but eventually I settled on the Bamboo with the Navy face. To me this was the very perfect “not just another tie”  Fathers Day Gift.

Truly how spectacular is this watch, not to mention the packaging. I was pretty pleased with myself.

Well of course me being me meant as soon as the box arrived I had to open it, and then as soon as I saw it in person I knew I would not be able to wait till June to give him his present, June is like months away and I was expected to keep a secret that long… not going to happen. Well to be perfectly honest. it was as big a hit as I expected it to be. Sad fact though instead of a Fathers Day gift , the watch has now become a ” Gifting your Guy” kind of occasion. ( and there is nothing at all wrong with just gifting your guy to show him how special he is, but now I have to find another Dad’s Day Gift for June)

 I adore the Delmar and all it stands for, Walk down the Delmar Loop in St. Louis and you’ll feel instantly at home, no matter how far you’ve traveled to get there. The inclusive nature of this district means every culture and clique shares in the comings and goings of one of St. Louis’s most popular spots. Our Delmar was designed to be familiar with just enough funk to remind you to celebrate the unique quirks that make you, You.                                    

Kent has been wearing his watch continually since I gave it to him and everyone, I mean seriously everyone is mesmerized by it when they see it. It is a piece of art. It’s the first watch he has left on when he gets home from work, he said it is so lightweight you don’t even notice you are wearing a watch.
