Story of a Yellow Shirtdress

I love a good vintage piece, and this yellow shirt dress caught my eye almost immediately while perusing a thrift shop one afternoon. Its bright color seems to instantly pour on good vibes, no matter what the current state of affairs may be. On this occasion I kept its pairings simple so this bold color truly could stand alone. I added my favorite red lippie (Sephora 01), a matching belt, a fun statement bag, and a pair of comfy sneakers. Check out more of my vintage scores here!

Joi’s Take: How to Wear White After Labor Day

InMyJoi2 InMyJoi3 InMyJoi4

Over the past few years, multiple fashion sources have advised us that it is now OK to break a major fashion rule: We are now permitted to wear white after Labor Day. In fact, it is even recommended! Long gone are the days that we have to wait until after Memorial Day, yet prior to Labor Day to cram in wearing all white colored clothing! Whoo hoo!!!

To be completely honest, we never needed anyone’s permission to wear white clothing during any time of the year.  I personally enjoy wearing white all year long. Sometimes women inquire as to how exactly this can be done. In my mind it is pretty simple – just do it, LOL! Nonetheless, today’s post features a foolproof way to break down the barrier if you feel somewhat hesitant about wearing white during cool weather months. Simply pair it with a dark color. For this look I opted for black, as black and white is my favorite color duo. read more
