Joie de vivre...

Joie (Check out their site!) has recently become one of my absolute favorite brands. Their blouses are so chic, easy, and feminine. The brand is a happy marriage between casual and sophisticated.  Recently, I've gotten four new blouses by Joie and I am excited to share them with you! :)

From left to right: Eleanor blouse, Elvia lace top, Jenna B blouse, Calico blouse
Of the four that I got, these two (Eleanor and Elvia) are probably my favorites:

The Calico Blouse

The first blouse I am going to show you is the Calico blouse. The fit is easy, breezy, and sophistic-eezy. That's a word now. Yup.

Buy it here.

The Elvia Blouse

The Elvia lace blouse is probably my favorite.... I have been wanting a lace blouse like this for so long! The scalloped edges on the collar, sleeves, and bottom are gorgeous. I am dying to pair this with a pleated leather skirt or some leather skinny pants... It also looks fantastic over dresses. I tried it on over a pink Miu Miu dress I thrifted recently (saving that for another post featuring a bunch of thrifted stuff! :D), belted it (it gave the blouse somewhat of a peplum shape, which looked fantastic), and I can't wait to wear it like that to brunch or on a date with my boyfriend. :)

The back has a delicate button up closure:
Buy it in white, blush, or black.

The Eleanor Blouse 

This blouse is the Eleanor blouse. I was admiring it online earlier because the shape of it is fantastic. The shoulders are a tad puffed up and the sleeves fit fantastically. But my favorite part is the back....
It's not tied quite so neatly here but the quaint little bow is just gorgeous. I had been eying this blouse in solid colors but I'm glad I found it in floral - totally spring appropriate! :)
 What the back looks like:

This blouse is available in cream, a dark-toned blush, an orange coral, pink, hot pink, bright blue, and black. (All of the color names link to the blouse in that particular color.) I highly recommend this blouse - the details make it so stunning!

The Jenna B Blouse

Finally, here is the Jenna B blouse. Unlike most of my blouses, which are cream, this one is actually white. :P 

 Hooray for ruffles!

This particular blouse seems to be no longer available, but there is a very similar one available from Joie Soft (Joie's diffusion line) that is cheaper and has longer sleeves: see it here.

Check out Joie's website here.
I guarantee you'll find something you like! :)


  1. Love the lace blouse! I think it'd be great, if you posted pictures of your outfits, so that we could see how you dress and put your outfits together. :)

    1. Thank you! <3 I will start putting up more outfits! They will probably be not-so-great-quality phone photos though, because I am not very good at taking self-shots with my SLR and I hate taking it with me anywhere lol! It's too big and heavy :/

  2. Beautiful Blouses! Joie is an absolute favorite of mine(: can't wait to check out more of your blog!

    much love,
    Lauren xoxo

  3. Love the lace top!!
