If you’ve been following me for a while any time at all, it’s no secret that I love light neutral colors and wood tones.

You can see it all over my house: in my new kitchen

And our master bedroom, just to mention a few…

And for our next house, I’m imagining even more: high white ceilings, light gray walls, tons of natural light, and some gorgeous new wood floors (I really cannot wait to show you all!).  But while I wait for closings to take place and boxes to pack themselves ( 😉 ), I’ve been thinking about incorporating that same style into more areas of my life.

If filling my home with beautiful things makes me smile, why not take them with me, too?  It helps that my obsession with white and wood is perfect for summer…

And it’s convenient that Mr. Pax and I have similar styles.

Speaking of Mr. Pax, I’m very happy to say that I’ve found his Father’s Day present (don’t tell him, though!).  This watch is just gorgeous…

And I love the casual yet sophisticated look of the wood (yes, real wood… and just beautiful!).

I’m happy to say that my little hand model was just thrilled that he got to wear Daddy’s watch, even for just a few minutes. 😉

I suggested in my series on choosing paint colors that you look in your closet to get an idea of what paint colors might work for you… Now I’m suggesting the opposite: if you know what you love in your home, find a way to incorporate that into your wardrobe.

For me, that means whites and wood tones, and JORD wood watches offer just that.  How about you?  What do you love in your home that you could incorporate in your wardrobe?
