cALI cOLD

Hat: Old| Coat: HERE| Silk blouse: Ralph Lauren| Cut off shorts: DIY project| OTK boots: HERE| Clutch: Vintage| Leather gloves: Old, similar HERE

Baby it's COLD outside! Fortunately, I snagged this furry delight just in time - in fact, I plan to LIVE in it for the remainder of winter 😊 LOL! No, but seriously, I'm currently planning a trip to a COLD climate and this furbaby will most certainly be packed in tow! Who says that faux fur can't be just as warm as the real thing?! 
I ❤ the texture of this coat, and the patchwork pattern adds in a dimension of fun. Although, I do wonder why couldn't it have been designed with a collar??? 
Anywho, for its first debut in the real world, I paired it with a black monochrome fit - silk blouse, cut off denim shorts, and OTK boots (recently acquired while on holiday). 
Looking ahead, I can also see this fuzzy thriller paired with practically any pastel color, white, cream, and red - just to name a few...
What furry acquisitions have you made this winter?!
Until next time Babes,

Golden Girl


Earrings: Nordstrom| Dress: c/o HERE (use discount code inmyjoi20)| Leather belt: Ralph Lauren
Suede boots: Ralph Lauren, similar HERE| Purse: Coach, vintage

What's better than one fabulous bardot maxi dress? Why TWO of course!!! LOL! I blogged a cute off the shoulder dress in my last post (HERE), since most good things come in pairs it only made sense in my head to follow up with this rustic beauty. Let's talk about number two shall we?😁 Color, tassels, and frills - honestly, what is there not to LOVE?!!! I packed it with me for a weekend escape and accessorized it with from the same color family. I can't wait to rock this in the summer with a strappy pair of sandals!

Until next time,

Floral Flow

Statement necklace: Nordstrom| Dress: c/o HERE (use discount code "inmyjoi20")| Velvet booties: c/o HERE| Purse: Vintage, thrifted

Most of the country has been in a major deep freeze, but  around these parts the weather seems to alternate between fall and spring 😉 Is it chilly where you are? My mom told me that she was looking forward to a warm-up of 10 degrees! I guess wintertime is here!  
Recently I had a chance to wear this closet newbie, an  OTS dress with a fun frilly high/low hem. I paired it with black accessories, and carried along a velvet blazer for the chilly night air. I really like this dress! 
Note: The material is on the thin side, almost sheer - I added a slip underneath it. 
I usually think of wearing dark floral prints during chilly temperatures, but this dress would also be great for summer. 
Until next time,
Xx

Red & Pink

Fur Scarf: HERE| Dress: c/o HERE|  Pink socks: Nordstroms| Pink sandals: TopShop, sold out

Can you believe that today is the final day of 2017?! This year certainly had its share of lows, but with them also came a few personal highs for which I am genuinely grateful. 
I love the feeling that a fresh start brings - it feels like the slate is wiped completely clean and there are countless new opportunities do things differently. 
Of course each day technically is a fresh start, but for a while I wasn't fully utilizing that perspective. 
Happily now things have shifted, I utilize that perspective regularly and it feels wonderful! 
Today's look is perfect for going out with the guys or gals. I paired two of my favorite bolds hues together. Of course, I'm more partial to RED, but then you already knew that...
I ❤ how both colors complement the other!
Until 2018 Loves,
Xx

Pretty Little Dots

Wool fedora: Similar HERE| Sunnies: HERE| Cape: c/o HERE (Save w/ code "inmyjoi20) 
White ruffle blouse: ZARA| Embellished skinnies: c/o HERE| Feather mules: ZARA

Wondering what to wear this weekend? I have the perfect fit for you 😉 I'm a recent convert to the embellished denim trend, (first pair blogged HERE) now it feels like I just can't get enough of them! The sparkling pair that I am wearing in today's post totally reminds me of the children's lullaby 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star'. Never heard of it? No worries, here's a brief quote:
"Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky."
LOL! This pair is so cute, but note that the sizing is generous as they have quite a bit of stretch. I recommend sizing down by one, as they will stretch out a bit after one wear 😉 
Honestly, I don't feel like these pictures do the pretty little dots justice...It was so bright/sunny outside when I shot this, you can't truly see how much they really sparkle- by way of white pearls and silver rhinestones. Anywho, for a super chill day (including a run to the office) I paired them with a updated ruffled white shirt, an amazingly long cape (available HERE + save w/ code "inmyjoi20" at checkout), and the feathered mules that have taken my wardrobe by storm...
Until next time Loves,
Xx
