I’m guessing pretty much every woman wants to either be Joanna, be Joanna’s best friends, go shopping with her, or live in one of her remodeled homes.
Here are just a handful of reasons why I love her.
And just to be clear, I’m an adorable and fun-loving stalker, not a lock your windows and your doors and get a restraining order stalker.
Joanna’s design aesthetic is both gorgeous and cozy at the same time. I love to see how she transforms a home from terrible to cozy and fabulous!
Watching Joanna interact with her husband Chip is just plain fun.
They are as cute as can be together, and you can truly see the love they have for each other.
I think it’s awesome when they openly share their faith and their hearts for Jesus.

I LOVE to see what Joanna is wearing each episode.
She has a way of making even the most simple jeans and tee outfits look totally chic. All of her outfits are seriously darling. She layers like a pro, and pretty much every single time I see her I want every single piece of clothing on her body.
And last, but certainly not least, I want her hair.
I’ve mentioned Joanna on the blog several times now, and I always get such positive feedback, so I had a fun idea to do a series called “Joanna Told Me To“.
And then I got this comment on one of my recent blog posts.
You should do a “Joanna Told Me To” post all about Joanna Gaines’ style… or you should just meet her and take pics together of your amazing wardrobes! #BreakTheInternet
I’m actually working on the meeting her thing too (right Jen!?!), but until then I have a handful of Joanna Told Me To posts scheduled! So here is my Joanna Told Me To board I created on Pinterest which contains some of the outfits you’ll be seeing in the coming months!
I’m really excited about my 1st official Joanna Told Me To Look!!!
leather jacket, tee, jeans, and boots
Everything in this outfit is a great staple piece to have in your closet, and you probably already have at least a couple of the items.
similar jacket HERE / similar dark grey tee HERE / similar Vigoss skinny jeans HERE /
similar Frye boots HERE
exact earrings HERE / exact arrow necklace HERE / exact tassel necklace HERE c.o. Accessory Concierge (but sold out until late January) – similar necklace in different colors HERE and another great Joanna-esque option HERE
And here’s a close up! You know that THESE circle hoops are my favorite earrings ever, and Joanna wears circle hoops like this (in all different sorts of materials) all the time. And my jacket is a couple of years old (and sold out), but I have several options for you in just a second!
Get The Look For Yourself Here:
And while I was cuddled up in bed and working on this post on Saturday there was a Fixer Upper marathon on HGTV. I looked up and saw this next outfit on Joanna.
Same idea for an outfit…but switch out the grey tee for a black tee, switch out the tall brown boots to some black booties, and switch out the light wash jeans for some dark wash jeans!
Here are some jacket options for you (some real, some faux, some suede) at all different price points:
THIS one is definitely my favorite of the current options.
Even at 45% OFF it’s still $239.90, but it was regularly $450!
If you are looking for a quality leather jacket, this one is gorgeous. The color is yummy, and I love all of the details (the collar, the zippers, the pattern on the shoulders, everything).
And just for fun, I took the same outfit I was wearing above, and just switched out the leather jacket for the baby blardigan! Don’t you think Joanna needs a baby blardigan?!? 🙂
I would totally send one to her if I knew she would actually get it!
2 colors of tee HERE at Nordstrom / TONS of colors at Free People HERE (hers looks like the blood orange) / similar necklace HERE / similar earrings HERE
Free People relaxed tee (See! I got it in black too!) / cami (black) /
point toe leopard flats HERE and HERE
The v is pretty deep, so I would highly recommend wearing a cami under it.
I did not size down in this tee like it recommends. I got a small (regular size for me), because I was looking for a slouchy tee.
And just for fun, here are some pieces that I think are very Joanna-esque.
She loves Free People (a good selection at Nordstrom HERE), Anthropologie, and I have had a couple of readers comment that she also shops at Evereve a lot.

Um, how fun is this post?!?! Like, I seriously love it!!!
Maddux Memories says
I say you plan a meet n greet with You and Joanna at the Silos! There's a perfect outdoor space with food trucks at her store. Would be so much fun! Just sayin… 😉
Erika Slaughter says
I feel the same way-every time I see her I think, "Why does that t-shirt look so cute on her?" She makes it all look cute!!
Amanda @ A Brownie World says
I love her look, very relaxed. But I adore her retro reveal looks! xo Amanda
I love her trucker hat she always wears-she makes it look so cute!! Also, I had no idea those earrings were leather-I have been eyeing them on her for a while! I'm ordering them today! 🙂 I love Joanna Gaines!
I have looked hi and lo for a pic of that hat…I can’t read any of them…what does her trucker hat say??
Noelle Mancini Prontnicki says
Her hat is Baylor Bears.. it’s the University in Waco, TX..
For those interested, the long, straight earrings she is wearing with the orange tee are sold at her store! You can order online too!

I'm so happy I'm not the only one obsessed with Joanna Gaines! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Leigh and Gray says
Hey Sheaffer…..I was just about to email you about some Frye boots! I am going to order the Jackie Button (on sale on Frye site…..reg $418 on sale for $249!) I first saw these beauties on Melanie Shankle when she spoke at our womens' conference in ATL!!! I was the lucky duck that got to pick her up at the airport! Sorry….I digress! My question is…Should I order my regular size, a 5 1/2 or size up to a 6? My foot is narrow but not crazy narrow. What do you think? Glo
Hi there! I think you should probably just go with your regular size! I'm about to go post these on facebook, because that's a great deal and they are gorgeous!!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Hi! I'm between a 5.5 and 6 in most shoes. I have one pair of Frye boots that are a 6 but I needed to return the Jackie Button (with side zip) because the 6 was too tight and too small.
Love this post, Sheaffer! One of my favorites!
Little Bits of Joy Blog says
So glad you are doing this!!! I can't wait to see how you interpret Joanna's style… you are going to rock this! xoxo
I have those same flare jeans from Nordstrom and love them! Awesome post!
I am also uuuuuuuuhhhhhbsessed with Joanna & Chip along with their show. I love how real they are on and off camera. Great post Shaeffer ?
In season one she totally rocked the "Must Have Shirt"!!! I'm pretty sure it was navy!
I just said last night that I wanted Joanna Gaines to redo my whole house! HA! I love their show and her style. I'm looking forward to these posts.
A lot of the jewelry (all?) Joanna wears is sold in her store….https://shop.magnoliamarket.com/collections/apparel/jewelry
Love your style, and love Joanna's, but I don't think she ever wears such ripped up jeans 😉
Seriously! Joanna, call me!! Let's have lunch!! 🙂 adorable outfit!! Love that leather jacket!!
gypsy soul interiors says
So cute! Have you had any trouble with your baby blardigan getting holes in the back seam? I'm going to take it back to Nordstroms when I get back in town but was wondering if it's a common problem?
Hi there! I've probably worn mine at least 10 times already (both in and out of the house), and I haven't had any trouble with this. I haven't heard any other readers say this either. I would for sure take it back! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Kim Kauffman says
This is such a fun post! I just love Joanna and her style!!
I LOVE that you're doing Joanna's outfits! I write recaps of each of the episodes. Born and raised in Waco (family still there!), I typically can figure out where each of the houses are and lots of other little details. Love what they're doing for Waco! http://www.thehometeamblog.com.
Bama Girl in TX says
I met her in Pottery Barn in Austin last summer! SO sweet and pretty in person. Oh and her hair is heavenly in person!! We took a picture together!
I LOVE this series! I've been scouring the Internet for that dark green military jacket she wears and can't find the exact brand identified anywhere. Can't wait to see more of these posts:)
I love her and her style! Wish I could find the dark gray with white stripes baseball shirt she wore on 2/2/2016. It was adorable! I live in a small town so it’s hard to find cute styles sometimes.
Hey Y’all. I was wondering if anyone knows what brand sunglasses she wears. They are seriously too cute and stylish too.
Joanna wears a turquoise necklace, almost looks like an arrowhead on its side, or perhaps just an oval shape…..any idea wear this can be purchased? I have not seen it on her site.
I have no idea! So sorry, Lisa! 🙁
It’s a Kendra Scott necklace! It is an arrowhead.
