The color combination of red and berry are striking combined in Maggy London's dress. This dress would be great as we head into fall. It is cool enough to wear when it's still a little warm outside, but could easily transition to fall and even winter with some tights and boots. I love below the knee length of the skirt too.
Are you looking forward to fall? Or hoping to extend summer as long as you can?
I received a Jord Cora watch complimentary.
This outfit is all about blue, turquoise and browns. Plus, I still have my tan from my summer trip to Greece, which I will be blogging about soon. The Irma top from LuLaRoe is super flattering. I also love the shade of blue! It's super soft and comfy, however I don't like how quickly the fabric wears especially considering the price. You can size down in the Irma style top; I actually sized down two sizes.
The gorgeous copper necklace was handmade in Greece. I bought it from a lovely little shop in Elounda, Crete. It's one of a kind and very lightweight and dramatic too! It's a showstopper kind of piece. If you are ever in Crete, I definitely recommend visiting the Unique jewelry shop.
The Cora Jord watch is a stunning timepiece. The turquoise face is one of my favorite colors and even more striking in-person. The band is made from Zebrawood, which has streaks resembling a zebra's stripes. The watch doesn't even need a battery. It also features swarovski crystal markers that add a bit of sparkle. You can use lemon or orange oil to clean the wood band. Check out the Jord collection women's watches.

Joy is not in things, it is... in us.
Joy really does seem to come from the simplest things. It can be reconnecting with an old friend or it could even be sparked by a genuine compliment from a stranger. I think one of the best ways to have more joy is by giving joy to someone else. Be the joy in someone's day and see if it spreads! I'd love to hear what you think. Is joy catching?
Here are my five joys for this post.
Have a happy and lovely week!
This look is the one and only outfit that I got blog photos of when I recently took a trip to Las Vegas. Hopefully, next time I'll do better. I got this gorgeous long cream skirt last year at Target. It was just too pretty to pass up. I didn't even buy it on sale, but it was still a good deal ringing in at just over $20. Even though the skirt is beautiful, it definitely isn't a wardrobe staple. The skirt hung in my closet unworn for months, but I knew Vegas was the perfect place to finally wear the skirt. You stay cool in the skirt because the top layer of the skirt is all lace and the liner is a thin solid cream that is only the length of a short skirt. It is quite delicate--I did snag the lace in a taxi. However, it could easily be fixed with a needle and thread as my friend pointed out and I had trouble even finding the tear when I looked for it later. The cream cardigan is a Forever 21 find that I got a while back and just happened to coordinate with the skirt. The liquid lipstick is narcissist from Cailyn cosmetics. A liquid lipstick is a great product to use while traveling because you can put it on at the beginning of the day and you won't need touch up much during the day. It's very long lasting, but can be somewhat drying. The long wear is worth a little dryness for me. Narcissist, in particular, is a great nude pink with plenty of color.
The background mural is outside the Neon Museum near old town Vegas. We planned to do the tour, but they actually were sold out of tickets. We didn't think that would be an issue on a weekday, so if you want to visit the Neon Museum, be sure to get your tickets in advance. I've heard it's amazing, so hopefully I'll make it to see all the old signs on a future trip. Thanks to Janell for taking the photos.
