Fresh Lemonade

This is the very first full week of Fall 2016, yet it hardly feels like Fall as temperatures soared to almost 100 degrees Fahrenheit over the weekend… Although I am truly in a Fall state of mind, I couldn’t help but dip into Summery fashion yet once again- not only was it blazing hot but I was also invited to an outdoor pool soiree! Barefoot Wine hosted the grand bash in Beverly Hills, with plenty of bubbly, yummy treats, and manis- could a girl ask for more?! I happily accepted the invitation and complied with their request that I come in fruit festive attire.  Just like a glass of lemonade….
By the way, are you following me on Instagram and or Snapchat (@InMyJoi)? I shared a number of videos there of the beautiful set-up ;)

For the Frill of It

Autumn is upon us and I am so thrilled by the beautiful shades of rust, burgundy, and the like now in ample abundance.
Cold shoulders were HUGE this Summer (see previous looks here, here, here, and here) - I’ve decided that there is no sensible reason as to why I cannot carry my affection for wearing them over into Fall and Winter! There aren’t a lot of things that I can say that I truly LOVE about living in SoCal, but the phenomenal weather is definitely at the top of my list!!! One awesome thing about this over sized cold shoulder top is that it can actually be worn on the shoulders, off the shoulders, or one shoulder bare : )
Gone are the days that wearing white is reserved for certain days/months of the year Babes- I freely wear white all year around! Sometimes I hear: ‘How do you wear white after labor Day?’ My answer is: Simply put it on! LOL!!! Seriously, there is no need to feel apprehensive about wearing crisp white pieces well into Fall, Winter, Spring, and of course Summer.  Great fitting, well made white denim jeans are a wardrobe staple for me, I love pairing them with rich colors such as this burgundy cold shoulder top (see another look here). You can also pair white denim with layers, long vests, sweater coats, plaid/graphic blazers, and the list really goes on and on…

Until next time,
XO

Fall for Culottes


If there is one new thing that I have fully embraced this year, I would have to say it is the concept of over-sized clothing. Although I am not at all obsessed with tight and or fitted clothing, generally speaking I am interested in clothing that fits my body well.
This year however, I found myself embracing over-sized fits, and feeling quite spectacular in them. Previously my preference was to steer clear of larger cuts of clothing, as I didn’t like the fact that they made me look bigger than I actually am.
Welp, 2016 has been the year to do away with that idea/care, and it feels so good! Although I am clearly full figured, my waist is considerably smaller than my hips. However, it is not necessary that I should always have to wear items to highlight and or accentuate that fact. Over-sized clothing works for all sizes, including those of us on the plus side :)

Until next time,
XO
