A Week of Outfits: Joy the Baker

A Week of Outfits: Joy the Baker

Cookbook author and Drake on Cake creator, Joy Wilson (aka Joy the Baker) is a style chameleon. “There are a few differences between Joy Wilson and Joy the Baker,” she says. “Joy Wilson is much more free — she will definitely go braless, if possible.” Here are five outfits Joy wore in a week…

A Week of Outfits: Joy the Baker

Shirt: Walmart men’s dress shirt, similar. Pants: Polka Pants. Glasses: Krewe. Apron: Not Perfect Linen. Mug: Campfire Studio Maine. Clogs: Dansko.

“When I’m teaching in the kitchen, my clothes have to be able to be stained and they have to be comfortable. So it’s linens, button down shirts, jeans, and my dirty ass work clogs — I just live in them. When I cook at home alone, I either go all out for myself or I do the absolute least. I love a box of Annie’s macaroni and cheese and sometimes if don’t have whole milk, I’ll substitute it for half and half or heavy cream — zero regrets. I also pair it with fanciest wine I have. If I make pasta from scratch I’ll mix it with fancy butter, fancy salt, and fancy parmesan and pair it with a cheap beer.”

A Week of Outfits: Joy the Baker

Dress: Amazon, similar. Hat: Vintage, similar. Purse: Vintage Dooney & Burke, similar. Watch: Vintage Cartier, similar. Rings: Porter Lyons, Marta Pia. Boots: Vintage, similar.

“People dress exactly however they’d like in New Orleans — you can do absolutely anything! A lot of times that means fringe and feathers and glitter on your face on a random Wednesday. I like to wear a comfortable dress with a little shoulder or cleavage peek. I think before, I was subconsciously dressing for other people and now I dress more for myself.”

A Week of Outfits: Joy the Baker

Jacket: Madewell. Dress: Pyne & Smith Clothiers. Scarf: LOFT, similar. Necklace: Delicacies. Watch: Vintage Cartier, similar. Rings: Porter Lyons, Marta Pia. Shoes: Everlane.

“I love a good denim jacket — it’s the most classic layer. Oversized denim is my favorite these days. I love to pair a scarf with an outfit because it’s what one of my chef idols Dorie Greenspan does! Scarves are easy and chic and I don’t have the weight of a chunky necklace on my neck. I love that I can wear these heels all day long without any discomfort — they give a little lift and class to a comfortable day outfit. They just make me feel like I tried, even if I barely did.”

A Week of Outfits: Joy the Baker

Cape jacket: Target, similar. Shirt: Madewell. Leggings: Athleta. Watch: Vintage Rolex, similar. Bracelet: Tiffany & Co. Duffle bag: Everlane, similar. Sneakers: Adidas.

“During normal times, I go back to Los Angeles a lot to visit family and hang with old friends, so when I travel I’m thinking about comfort. I want pockets on my body so I can shove things in there, like my phone and passport. If I’m sitting for a long time I hate wearing high-waisted pants that cut into me — that is a standing pant! An elastic waistband is a must for maximum comfort, so I travel in yoga pants, and I love the split cuff in these. They feel more like pants than fresh-from-the-yoga-studio leggings.

A Week of Outfits: Joy the Baker

Bodysuit: ASOS, similar. Pants: Alice + Olivia, similar. Glasses: Harry Lary’s, similar. Earrings: Forever 21, similar. Necklace: Delicacies. Watch: Vintage Cartier, similar. Rings: Porter Lyons, Marta Pia. Bag: Uxibal, similar. Shoes: Everlane.

“I don’t wear a ton of black, but when I do it’s all black. This is my date outfit. I love a monochrome moment, and this slinky, backless bodysuit paired with my favorite wide-leg pant is sexy without being over the top. I love going to Commander’s Palace for 25-cent martinis or my favorite restaurant, Thalia. I love the schnitzel and the menu changes every week, so there’s always something fun to try. It’s perfect — the kind of place where they remember your name.”

Thank you, Joy! You’re the best.

P.S. More women share their week of outfits, including a nutritionist and a food writer.

  1. HeatherL says...

    Oh-I would wear all of this. Style sister! Also-Joy the Baker’s Olive Oil Braised Chick Peas is one of my favorite recipes. SOOOO good. I thank her for that.

  2. Dream guest outfit post! Joy is such an inspiration in relation to everything.. baking, cooking, style and general vibe. Loved this, thank you.

  3. Oh I love Joy so much, so glad to see her week of looks here. And NOLA living sure is a dream, she’s killing it. Brilliant feature!

  4. Amy says...

    I was so happy to see Joy here! Her recipes and posts have always been such a balm during hard weeks. Would love to see more of her!

  5. Alex says...

    I love Joy! Style, recipes, her blog. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Kelly says...

    Oh gosh, I had such a crush on her when I was growing up.

  7. I love Joy so much! Thanks for highlighting her incredible fashion and person!

  8. Sarah says...

    Everyone go make Joy’s cream cheese cinnamon rolls right now! They are SO good.

  9. Lisa says...

    Oh, how I love Joy the Baker!! If you’ve never made her Chai Spice Cinnamon Rolls, make them! Incredible. And her style seems so effortless and so much apart of who she is, not just what she wears.

  10. Brittany says...

    I love her! Been following her on Instagram for awhile and she’s just so awesome. Her recipes are amazing too. I’ve made her cheddar scallion bread and her doing the most chocolate chip cookies since the stay at home order started in MD. You definitely need both of those in your life, trust me.

  11. Lori says...

    Ok I didn’t know who Joy the Baker was before this – but I LOVED her clothes so I had to look – now I spend all my time reading her recipes and watching her pinterest.

  12. Michele says...

    Where are those counter stools from?

  13. Susan says...

    Joy you are the best! So talented, stylish and down to earth. I love her and beautiful New Orleans too!

  14. CB says...

    Joy is the best– I love her blog and also she is so real. Love everything about this! What a JOY to read and see this.

  15. Mona says...

    So glad you featured her. She was the first food blog I ever read. I love her authentic voice.

  16. H says...

    Oh my goodness, Joy!!!! I’m so thrilled to see her on the blog. I’m a longtime reader of both blogs and I’m so happy to see her smiling face here!!! Just what we need during quarantine:)

  17. Stacy S says...

    My two favorite blogs in one article!! I can’t! Joy is the absolute best and I live for her Sunday recaps! Thank Cup of Jo!

  18. Melissa says...

    Joy is the hippest and coolest! I don’t miss a “Let It Be Sunday” blog. Even with corona-time, I still haven’t made a cake yet. Goals!

  19. Erin says...

    Thank you for this feature– the week of outfits is always fun and inspirational and I love Joy and her sense of humor and amazing culinary and literary skills. And now fashion inspiration too!

  20. Jay says...

    This is my office new haircut post quarantine. Naturally curly bangs for the WIN

  21. Cait says...

    I love Joy, her recipes, and her house! Anyone who hasn’t needs to go look at her house tour on Apartment Therapy. Also I have to say I was laughing at your newsletter this afternoon because of the high waisted pant recommendation for ‘couch’ wear….because that’s the last kind of pant I want to wear to be cozy at home! Maybe if you’re working from home and want to feel in work mode, but not lounging, right? So I feel like Joy validated me that those are standing pants ;)

  22. Oooh! I’ve been reading Joy the Baker for SO long (12 years? 13 years? I feel old). I love her travel outfit the most!

    This also makes me miss New Orleans, a city I’ve been thinking about so much since this pandemic started. Maybe because it was our last kid-free vacation (Fall 2018)? It was four perfect days–and we spent one of them on a food tour with Remy Robert, who I found here on Cup of Jo when she did a City Guide!

  23. Nicole says...

    Yes!!! She is my absolute favorite. Loved reading this!

  24. Alice Mount says...

    I love Joy the Baker AND New Orleans!! So excited to see her featured. Everyone must try her chocolate vegan cake made with avocados. I am not vegan and it is hands down the best chocolate cake I’ve ever made. I make it several times a year. I usually make it with a vegan ganache (chocolate and coconut milk) instead of the green icing she features, but I’m sure that would also be delicious.

  25. Elizabeth says...

    HOLD. UP. I’m going to have to hear more about these 25 cent martinis! Also, she is effortlessly cool.

  26. Lauren E. says...

    Okaaaay those Athleta pants are really taunting me at this point.

    Fantastic outfit diary!! I love every single look. Especially her super well-loved work clogs.

  27. Elizabeth says...

    I LOVE JOY THE BAKER!!! This feels like all the best of my worlds colliding right now!!

  28. Kiely says...

    That mustard door though. YES.

  29. Katie says...

    I NEED to know where she got her glasses from in the first photo – been trying to find some like that for ages!

    • Katharine says...

      I think she said Krewe. It’s a New Orleans brand. They have super cool glasses and I’ve been eyeing them for ages.

    • Katie says...

      Thank you!!!

  30. Ellen W says...

    I’ve read Joy’s blog for many years and recognize a few of her clothing pieces. Some of her recipes have become standards in my kitchen like her brown butter blueberry muffins.

  31. I love Joy the Baker! She’s so cool and I love her content.

    Stephanie

  32. Lauren says...

    JOY. THE. BAKER. IS. EVERYTHING. Thank you so much, Kim and COJ!!!

  33. Courtney says...

    Love this! Joy is beautiful!

  34. jane says...

    Wow your new ads broke both my ad-blockers. I have ADD and ads are so jarring that I will have to pause reading COJ until my ad-blockers adjust to whatever power moves google has installed on your site. I just despise having ads FORCED on me like this. Readers should be able to opt-out of visual distractions.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      thank you so much for your feedback! you can close them by pressing the “X” in the corner. hope this helps!

    • Margaret says...

      None of us love the ads, but we all love the free content. If you love the free content, and the people like Jo bring it to us, don’t block the ads! It’s one of the ways she gets paid! And she deserves to be paid (as do her beloved contributors – like Caroline and Kim)!!!!

    • Mel says...

      Agree—they are really jarring. And only appeared recently? Otherwise, great post—thanks!!

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      thank you for your note! they’re new ads because we’re trying to keep revenue sources up during this coronavirus time. my goal is to pay our team their regular rates and health insurance all year, so we’re trying our best to figure that out. hope that helps! xo

    • M says...

      Try using a blog roll type of app. I use feedly. No ads and blog pages all in one place.

    • Sarah says...

      Kudos to you, Joanna, for being resourceful + finding a way to create extra revenue to support your family, your team, and your contributor during such a wild time. I work with a lot of online brands who’ve had to make a hard decision to let team members go. So I’m delighted to see these ads here, and it’s amazing that you’re working so hard to take care of your people.

    • LB says...

      Hit the X. Then donate to COJ so they can make a living if you’re up for it.

    • El says...

      Actually, when I saw this comment I turned my Adblocker *off* (mine must have filtered them). I have had SO MUCH warmth and joy and grins out of COJ over the years. It’s such a treat that I’ve never paid anything for. I made this decision today to support it, at least for this strange time.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      Oh my gosh, thank you so much, El. That means so much to us!

  35. Abby says...

    yeeesss!!!!! love me some Joy the Baker!

  36. Lauren says...

    I would LOVE to know about her lip color- it’s the EXACT pretty peachy-pinky color that I have been imagining/hunting for online for months! Also- anyone else fully ready for her beauty uniform?? Thanks CoJ, this was a delightful read <3

  37. Steph says...

    “that is a standing pant” – truer words were never spoken :)

  38. Loved this one! I love when my favorite blogs collide!!

  39. Arlene Schusteff says...

    We need a house tour here…!!

  40. PATRICIA DIAZ says...

    I love her! Her instagram is the best.

  41. Scarlett says...

    Next talk to Tracy of shutterbean.com!!

    • Kirsten says...

      Yes, please!!

    • Maire says...

      YAS! She is my favorite!

    • margaret says...

      Seconded!

    • Kam says...

      Yes! Love Tracy as well. I think they are bffs. :-)

    • Heidi says...

      Oh my gosh yes!!!! And a home tour.

    • Mary says...

      Yes!!!! She is my favorite.

    • Meghan says...

      Yes!!!!!

  42. RM says...

    Would love to try the Athleta pants, but they don’t have my size. I love that they’re not tight like leggings, just slim cut, love the pockets, and the split hem.
    If anyone can recommend something similar, please do!

    • Danielle says...

      Not quite the same but I really like the Mountain Hardware Dynama Ankle Pant. They come in regular and plus sizes. They have a decent amount of stretch so I I own them in two sizes one for a slimmer fit and one to fit over a base layer in cold weather. There’s a version with more pockets too! https://www.mountainhardwear.com/womens-dynama-ankle-pant-1648081.html

    • Cynthia says...

      Spanx makes a similar pair,The Perfect Black Pant ( ankle back seam skinny) the little slit is at the back instead of the side. I have them and they are very comfy and flattering.

  43. Kia says...

    She seems like a cool lady and I love her beautiful genuine smile. It makes me smile just to look at it!

    • She is a wickedly cool lady and fabulous blogger. Look her up!

  44. LOVE all the outfits! I think I’d wear them all.
    ESPECIALLY love that she has a yellow door: I do too ;)

  45. Joy is stylish as can be but can we ALSO GET A HOUSE TOUR PLEASE?!

  46. Kristiana says...

    I’ve been following Joy as long as I’ve been following Cup of Jo, the only 2 blogs I bookmark to check in on each day! Love her so much.

  47. Beth says...

    Joy! Yay! Thanks for sharing. ❤️

  48. Mei says...

    Thank you for featuring Joy! She radiates warmth and love. Similar to CoJ’s Friday round-ups her Sunday link posts are a perfect mixture of emotions.

  49. Grace says...

    the stimulation strikes again, haha –yesterday, I made Joy’s strawberry crumble pie and it was absolutely, heart-warmingly delicious. I’m from the New Orleans area, and was looking for some recipes that used Louisiana strawberries. I’m very happy hers came up. Highly recommend for all strawberry/dessert lovers out there:)

    PS. Love the outfits XX

  50. Caitlin says...

    My 2 fave bloggers unite!

  51. ali says...

    I need to know more about these 25 cent martinis!

  52. Amy says...

    Love that Pyne and Smith dress! I own 8 in different colours and styles and just rotate through them – I’m wearing the Guernsey check no. 30 right now. They’re cute and sooo comfortable and I really feel like ‘me’ in them! I also really love that the brand is ethical and transparent.

    • You are officially an influencer. I went back to see what dress you meant, then went to the site, and now want it all. I’m not a shopper either! Those overalls are adorable!!!

    • Heather says...

      Yes yay for Pyne and Smith! I own three and a skirt and have been wearing it all non stop at home – so nice to have something easy, that makes me feel good at this time.

  53. Kate says...

    I am so delighted to see this post! I love Joy’s writing (her Let it be Sunday posts are one of my favorite sources for good reads) and her recipes. I’d love to know what she does for hair care – I have similarly wavy-not-quite-curly hair and have trouble bringing out the wave.

    • Sarah says...

      I agree, I’d love haircare information/product recommendations from Joy!

  54. Lindsey says...

    I was a baker for years and I completely agree in the glory of a button up shirt and Danskos. You have to be able to roll up your sleeves! Also, if you have a stand-up job then you know, Dansko is the only way.

  55. Kirsten says...

    I’ve been a fan of Joy the Baker for SO long!! I was so excited to open up Cup of Jo and see this. I LOVE her. If you don’t already, everyone needs to go follow her on Instagram and watch her stories. You will fall in love. It’s a bucket list item of mine to check out The Bakehouse in New Orleans.

    • Definitely GO! I went last May to a fruit pie workshop and want to go back again and again!!

  56. Robin says...

    I also love Annies! My favourite way to make it is with half-and-half cream, a tablespoon of butter, salt, pepper, garlic powder and Parmesan grated on top. A dab of sour cream mixed in is also excellent. I also pair it with white wine, and depending on the day, some Haagen Dazs. It’s classy Kraft Dinner and I’ve stopped being ashamed of loving it!

    • I used to make it when babysitting by also adding tuna and peas!

  57. danielle says...

    Seriously, my two favorite women on the internet on a single page. <3

  58. Marybeth says...

    I did a double take when I saw who this was!! I LOVE Joy the Baker and was so excited to see these worlds collide!! My weekends start with Cup of Jo sends offs and end with Let it Be Sunday :) xoxo

  59. Jamie Shawyer says...

    Oh Joy, such a diamond in this internet space. I have been following Joy the Baker for many many years and even had the pleasure of showing her around London on a long ago trip.

    It brought a huge smile on my face to see her beautiful face this morning. Thank you!

  60. Lauren says...

    I absolutely adore Joy ❤️

  61. Keara says...

    LOVE JOY THE BAKER! She is so authentic and I always look forward to her sunday blog posts!

  62. Audra says...

    I love when my blog worlds collide! Joy the Baker is the best, I have been following her for years. Thanks for featuring her!

  63. Tess says...

    “Standing pants” :D hahahaha That is perfect. I know EXACTLY what she means!

  64. Keira says...

    This has been my favorite of the outfit series so far, and the New Orleans setting just makes it all the dreamier. Can’t believe I haven’t known about Joy until now — thanks Cup of Jo for the introduction! x

  65. Jules says...

    I have come here to say the same as everyone else. I opened it up and got so giddy excited before even reading one word. Love love love. Joy is so lighthearted and fun and also her recipes are so good. I’ve been watching her live instas just for some goodness these days. Be well, all <3

  66. Kitty says...

    In 2016 I visited NOLA with my mum, sister, and 3 year old. We used JtB’s restaurant guide and had one of the most memorable vacations ever. Every place we hit was a pleasure. xo

  67. Meghan says...

    Totally gasped when I opened this tab. I’ve been reading Joy the Baker for many, many years! I love her browned butter banana bread and just totally trust her recipes! You can never go wrong with one of her recipes or Sunday lists. Plus, her zest for life is contagious. Yay! Brightened my day :D

    • Julie says...

      Same here! So happy to see Joy

    • Gina says...

      I gasped too!! What a great surprise to see her face!

    • Cait says...

      I gasped too! Love Joy.

  68. Beth says...

    Oh
    My
    God

    Worlds colliding. I haven’t even read this yet but I feel so excited. These are two of five blogs that I have read for the last decade? Plus smitten kitchen, design mom, and emily Henderson. Thank you in advance! Gotta go read…….

  69. Julie says...

    Thank god for this today! Such a bright spot amidst the world’s craziness. Love Joy, love you guys, love the collaboration.

  70. Christy C says...

    Love Joy the Baker! Her recipes are incredible, OF COURSE her style is awesome too!

  71. Catarina says...

    I LOVE Joy’s style! Also I want to be friends with her – she sounds like a very cool lady!

  72. Mama M says...

    New blog: Cup of Joy the Baker.

    I will read every word ever written, cook every recipe created, and wear every outfit assembled by this collaborative team.

    • Julie says...

      Hahaha me too!

  73. I really love Joy! Thank you so much for featuring her week of outfits. I’m all about a black monochrome moment, so I would rock that last outfit every day of the week. Have you read her Let it be Sunday posts? I look forward to them every week. :)

  74. Shannon says...

    So beautiful! This was the dose of “Joy” I needed in these unsettling times!

  75. Dear ladies of CupofJo! I’ve been following this blog with delight for quite a time already. But there’s one thing that continues to shock me – the incessant linking to Amazon. Already since some time there is a lot being said about the scandalous way in which Amazon’s employees are being treated, especially right now. Not to mention the way it destroys local shopping and small businesses and has such an enormous database of information about its clients, it’s practically dangerous. Amazon’s business practices are downright horrible and it’s just not ethical to be cooperating with such a company. I know affiliate links are one of the ways this website can make money – but couldn’t you be linking to companies which run more responsible businesses?

    • Lee says...

      I concur! Would love to see less linking to Amazon and more to businesses that are socially responsible.

    • Steph says...

      YES to this. I’ve stopped buying from Amazon (AND Whole Foods) for all of these reasons. I will always buy directly from the company if I can, and be willing to pay for shipping. I’m not wealthy – far from it. But staying away from Amazon saves me money by making me shop more thoughtfully. Thank you for mentioning this. Small businesses need our trade now more than ever.

    • K says...

      I agree, and yet it seems to always fall on deaf ears…. because peeps just want to consume and buy all of their needs ASAP! And it’s all so lovely and convenient at their fingertips while sitting at home.
      Walmart was the target for years(and no gold star of course) however Amazon speaks to more than lower middle class and working poor, so it’s excused and allowed.

    • Christina says...

      Hey Kaja, I hear you! But I just went through all the links, and the only Amazon link in this piece was to a “similar” dress of one Joy sourced from Amazon. I think CoJ typically tries to keep the source site the same whenever possible when finding “similar” pieces.

    • kath says...

      Thank you for saying that – I consistently feel the same way and am baffled by how this blog, like so many, have such a blind spot / or just willfully ignore the deeply negative impact of Amazon

    • Sarah says...

      Yes and yes and yes.

    • Wow, good to know I am not alone! Christina, I see what you mean! Yes, in all fairness, in this post this one, with the “similar” dress, was the only Amazon link. It still happens quite often though that when I click on a link here, it takes me to Amazon. On such a popular website as CoJ, which has also raised social and ecological issues and talks a lot about all aspects of well-being, I would just love to see a policy of not linking to businesses which have a very negative influence on society and environment.

    • C. says...

      But that’s where she shopped. The dress she is wearing was bought through Amazon, and the links in this feature are intended to connect people with the product, so ….? And the other links are to a variety of businesses- some big, some small, some independent, and the subject of this feature is herself an independent business woman.
      Seems ok to me.

  76. yvie says...

    Does she collect designer watches? Her style seemed super accessible – walmart, target, madewell, etc., but I was thrown by the rolex and the cartier watches. No shade. Just curious. I love watch faces, so am curious if they’re of particular significance, or just an item that she likes to splurge on.

    • SanDee says...

      I was so glad to see I’m not alone! Like you said, the rest of her wardrobe is very accessible price-wise, and very straightforward and practical. Then I read she has vintage Cartier and Rolex watches! I realize that perhaps they’re family heirlooms, or maybe these high end purchases may be how she chooses to spoil herself—and good for her if so! It just struck me because those are totally outside of most people’s budgetary constraints!

    • Roberta says...

      As someone who loves vintage watches, I’m always surprised at how reasonably priced such watches are – particularly if you want to buy a woman’s watch (men’s watches are typically higher in value as there are more keen male watch-buyers – although I love the look of a man’s watch on a woman’s wrist!). Now, Rolex and Cartier hold their value pretty well, but there are loads of big name (e.g. Breitling) vintage watches that you can get for under £1,500 – not cheap but certainly cheaper than a lot of new watches that you might buy in a jewellers and definitely within reach of a determined saver.

      Just because someone appears “super accessible” doesn’t mean that they have to be so in every aspect of their life – lots of people drive big cars (which I find incomprehensible) but would balk at the amount of money I spend at the supermarket (but to me, one of the greatest pleasures in life is food!). The internet and it’s commentators are always trying to reduce people to one facet – when individuals contain a multitude!

      I guess what I am trying to say is that it’s perfectly OK to only wear high street basics but purchase and enjoy beautiful watches – and really, other people’s budgets (and how they choose to spend them) are none of our business.

    • yvonne says...

      Like I said, Roberta. I wasn’t throwing shade. I was actually really curious about her collection & I was trying to get into that nuanced fact that there are things that many of us believe to be worth the splurge because they make us feel happy. I would have loved to learn more about her watches. The incongruence between her cheaper clothes & the more expensive watches is what initially made me notice the watches and it intrigued me. Thanks for being so condescending.

  77. Dana says...

    I love Joy and love this! Would absolutely LOVE to see a Joy the Baker Beauty Routine!

  78. Sarah says...

    ICON

  79. Dana Wilson says...

    I love her vibe and her glasses! will follow asap :)

  80. Ellen says...

    Joy Wilson and Joanna Goddard are my two favorite writing voices on the internet. Authentic, genuine, true. What a treat to see this today!

  81. Rachel says...

    I love Joy! She is one of my fave people on the internet and I have been reading her blog for more than ten years.

    • Mama M says...

      Me, too! This is my favorite kind of “when worlds collide”. All the good people in one place.

  82. MacleanNash says...

    I love Joy! I have been following her blog for years! Every time I make one of her recipes they always turn out perfect and delicious!
    Her Gnarley Muffins are perfect for breakfast and she has an oatmeal cookie with crystallized ginger that is HEAVENLY!
    Big, big Joy fan!

  83. Paige says...

    Love her style! Does anyone else think she resembles Kelly Clarkson when she smiles?

  84. claire says...

    wonderful style- she looks pretty, creative, and comfortable. And she wears vintage jewelry, which i also love.

  85. liz says...

    wow! really love this one. She radiates! <3

    • Saba says...

      Hello! Hope this finds you well! May we please have a beauty uniform featuring the artist Amanda Oleander? She is beautiful inside and out and I would love to know more about her skincare/self-care routine :) Thank you and stay safe!

  86. celeste says...

    Just ordered a pair of Adidas Superstars and I’m sure I’ll be wearing them all summer. The outfits got better and better as I scrolled on.

  87. Faith says...

    YES! I follow Joy on Instagram and she is fantastic.

  88. omg LOVE Joy!

  89. Kristin Brookover says...

    Chiming in like so many others that these are two of my favorites all in one place! Also echoing others’ suggestion that another CoJ/Joy collaboration on a New Orleans travel guide would be great!!

    Joy!!!!!! Love seeing her here!

  91. Joy is one of my favorite internet personalities and bakers!!! She brings such light and positivity to everything she does! Thank you so much for this — gives fashion inspiration for my first date post social distancing.

  92. Gia says...

    Two of my favorite blogs in one post! Thank you for sharing – some great inspiration for post-quarantine days

  93. Amanda says...

    Love Joy the Baker!!

  94. Jade says...

    So Joy has made me want to move to New Orleans to be her best friend!

    I know we cannot travel right nor or in the foreseeable future (which I know is a completely frivolously complaint but it is absolutely breaking my heart) but if/when we can I would LOVE a guide to New Orleans! It is the next part of America that I would love to explore.

    • Sarah says...

      Joy has several great ones on her blog!

    • Jade says...

      Thanks so much Sarah! I will be doing a deep dive into her Blog.
      Cheers.

  95. Maggie says...

    This is my girl right here!! Been following her insta stories since forever because she is so hilarious and relate-able. Also, though she’s not a NOLA native girl has Creole in her soul. I adore her! Also, killer outfits. Perfect face.

  96. megs283 says...

    Ok…I LOVE every single one of these outfits. Every. single. one. Gorgeous!!

    • megs283 says...

      so…the link to the final black pants is not similar at all. The link goes to a narrow leg and Joy is wearing a wide leg. (Not to be that person! I wanted to buy comfy wide-leg pants!)

    • Meg says...

      I would recommend the summersalt wide leg pants then! They are a lightweight material and MASSIVELY oversized – seriously order one or two sizes smaller than even their size chart lists!

  97. Heidi says...

    I’m so excited to see Joy here today… it’s like the two best online people/places collided. Joy, you’re just so chic and cool. Thanks for this post today!

  98. Sarah says...

    my two favorite blog worlds colliding!! I love Joy the Baker so much – her instagram and site make me smile daily. I also love her attitude and general give no f*cks mentality. She’s a role model for sure.

  99. Daniela says...

    Love her! Love her outfits! Home tour? :)

  100. Roxanne says...

    Love it when two of my favorite bloggers come together!

  101. Clare says...

    I absolutely love this!
    And now I also love Drake on Cake.

    P.S. Also happy to see ads if it means paychecks!

  102. Emma says...

    AHHHHH I’ve been wanting this to happen for so long. I screamed out loud!!

  103. Rasheeda says...

    OMG! I just stopped in for a sec and saw Joy!! I effing love this woman!!! Will have to return when I have a proper moment to myself to properly savour this! Thank you!!

  104. Tami says...

    Talented, stylish and beautiful….and, she sounds like someone I need to hang out with just b/c she “gets it”.
    We may need a home tour if that’s Joy’s kitchen in the top pic!

    • Anna says...

      Seconded!

  105. Kim says...

    Joy! She is the best, great to see excellent creators coming together :)

  106. Amanda says...

    I love Joy the Baker!! This was so great to see <3

  107. Sasha L says...

    Joy!!!! I shouted your name in pure joy seeing this post today. Yours was the very first blog I followed. This was a total delight – seeing a little glimpse of your life outside your lovely kitchen and creations. For the uninitiated, Joy the Baker has such fun, informative and found no where else Sunday links. I look forward every single week and always feel like a kinder and more knowledgeable person for having read.

    Loved every one of your outfits. I can’t even choose a favorite. You are just so classy and beautiful. Home tour? Beauty routine? Favorite isolation recipes? Anything and everything Joy?

    Thank you Kim, just hitting it out of the park with content this week, and COJ for keeping us going.

  108. So fun to see my city on Cup of Jo! Joy is so beautiful and I love seeing these gorgeous shots around town (Sundae Best is the first place I’m going when quarantine is over). xoxo, Rachel

  109. Jackie says...

    Love Joy! Love Cup of Jo!

  110. Christina says...

    Joy is darling!!!! She just radiates positive energy and I am digging her style and her shoulder tattoo. I might need to buy one of those aprons.

    One more thing to the CoJ team – I know you’ve gotten some negative feedback on the new ads. I am just here to say I don’t mind them as much as I thought I would (hopefully not forever, but they’re certainly better than my local news site, for example!) and I’m completely supportive of your team keeping full pay and benefits during this time. I can only hope any employer would do everything they could to maintain that for their employees. Xo

    • Sasha L says...

      Thank you for reframing the new ads. So helpful.

    • mel says...

      100% agree. I don’t care about the ads in the slightest! What a small thing to have to put up with in light of things. And I SO appreciate what loveliness COJ puts out into the world

    • Daniela says...

      I agree. I’ll wade through all the ads if your wonderful employees can keep their salaries and insurance. I’ve been clicking on them, just in case it helps with revenue. Lol.

    • Anna says...

      I agree — and I think the popup ads are actually *better* than lots and lots of typical sponsored content would be — I think that would feel a little more tone-deaf? So I appreciate the route you’ve chosen :)

    • Rachel says...

      100% agree! Thanks for continuing to be so fab, CoJ team!!!
      Your brighten my day, everyday 💗

    • Becka says...

      Was there an announcement somewhere of why ads are appearing? I’m getting “XBox One” ads, I never thought I would miss the big brother ads showing me the shirt at Anthro I was just looking at ;)

    • LIlly says...

      Agreed – I think the balance you’ve found now CoJ team is great. If you need to add more ads I’m totally in support of that. Cheering you on!

    • Lilly says...

      I work in advertising and I can maybe help answer a bit about how these ads & targeting work if it would help? I agree with Anna, it’s a fairly benign way to help keep everything going, but CoJ will have very limited control over what ads show. (Depending on their tier, likely just a blocklist – the types of ads they’d rather not run against their content – and a few fields about what CoJ does and is to help guide publisher categorization. The rest is up to the targeting & each auction.)

      The big brother effect of retargeting ads following you around is one of the easiest targeting types to understand, but there are hundreds of other signals possibly at play. Past targeting, there are several other major factors deciding which ad wins an auction at any given moment (bids of many types, ad quality ranked against policies, other peoples’ response to similar ads/similar peoples’ responses, inventory and creative available, who else is competing, etc.)

      As an advertiser I *wish* I had clients whose ads would fit – you’d be on my whitelist in a heartbeat to give you all the money!!

  111. Anileys Bermudez says...

    I would love to know the color/name of her yellow door

    • Lauren says...

      Hey remember that none of this is remotely accessible to most humans. We can’t all be the reference point! There are probably readers for whom Walmart prices are inaccessible, and I think it would be way more disrespectful to lower the prices here to some arbitrary number that they still couldn’t afford, and then happily call it accessible! I grew up poor and I LOVED ‘fancy’ catalogues, loved watching fashion shows, loved art and design books. Are there really people who think poor people only want to look at grocery store flyers? If so, I don’t see why they’d read style blogs.

  112. Jessica says...

    I love this woman’s style!

    One small quibble, dear Cup of Jo team: your “similar” links are not very similar in this particular set. I *immediately* loved the cream jacket in the 4th photo – but the link was to a half-zip, long sleeve fleece.
    In the 5th, she’s wearing killer high-waist, wide leg, *pleated* (yes!!!!) pants. I am absolutely looking for pants like that. The “similar” link is to a slim-leg, mid-rise, flat front pant.
    I know you have a promotions/partnership with Nordstrom, and I respect that, but in this time when the ONLY outlet many of us have for our love of fashion is online, perhaps help us out in trying to emerge from this time in the fashions we want to wear? I’m sure it would help you, as well, as the linked items would be more likely to sell!

    In case anyone else wanted to find actually similar items to the above, I took it on myself:

    • Elisabeth says...

      Thank you for taking time to find & share these links! I agree; Joy’s style is so so lovely.

  113. Hannah says...

    This was great! Joy is such an inspiration. I’d love to see a home tour with her as well, when life is stable and safe for travel, of course.

  114. Rachel says...

    I gasped with delight when I came over to my favorite blog and saw one of my other favorite Internet ladies! Joy always seems like someone who is so fun and easy to be around and I truly love her voice. Thanks CoJ team for keeping us filled with such wonderful content in such weird times! Xx

    • Sarah says...

      YESSSS! Same, Rachel!! Just want I needed to perk me up today!! JOY on CoJ!!! Love her so much

    • Caitlin says...

      Rachel, yes I felt the same excitement! I followed Joy before I learned about Cup of Jo…and I love her approach to life and to cooking. I so appreciate feeling connected to inspirational and thoughtful women, now even more so.

    • katie says...

      Agreed! I felt the same when I saw Joy the Baker here.
