what you're wearing: kendi

i know i originally said that i would only feature non-fashion bloggers in this series, but i had to make an exception this week so that i could introduce you to kendi.

kendi writes a blog called kendi everyday where she shares daily outfits. she just finished her fall 30 for 3o remix (you take 30 items of clothing and create 30 outfits with them for 30, or more, days). you can see a summary of her fall remix here. check it out. it's pretty awesome what she's done with the same 30 pieces.

okay, so here are my two biggest reasons for loving kendi:

1. she's hilarious. i love her "blog voice." she is the only fashion blogger whose posts i actually read. i usually just look at the pictures.
2. i think she loves j.crew as much as i do.
3. i know i said two reasons, but i'm adding a third because i can. the way she dresses really inspires me....especially her mastery of knee highs under boots. i don't think i've ever seen it done better.

okay, without further ado, i present:

isn't she pretty?? i looooove that dress & this outfit! so cute.

cardigan: j.crew
dress: megan nielsen
knee-highs: gap
boots: urban outfitters

1. where did you wear this outfit?
I wore this outfit on a Saturday at my parents house. B and I went shopping and to a few coffee shops and book stores. Now that I think about it, it might have been the perfect day.

2. where are your favorite places to shop? favorite online stores?
Oh gosh, so many places! I am a mall-rat at heart so my favorite stores are J.Crew, Gap, Loft and Target. If only those stores existed, I'd be fine. I really like to find deals on Amazon (as weird as that sounds). You can find some amazing sales on shoes online, which is where I buy most of mine. Amazon and Piperlime are my two favorite sites.

3. do you have a style icon?
I love the way Rachel Bilson pulls off refined casual -- she does it like no other. And of course I like every other girl in the world have a total style crush on Zooey D. Sigh.

4. what do you have the most fun shopping for and wearing? (i.e. sunglasses, jewelry, shoes, jeans, boots, sweaters, things with stripes, skirts, you get the idea)
Clothes in general. I love shopping, maybe too much? So shopping for anything is so much fun. I love a good sale, it makes shopping that much more fun if you can get a good deal. I don't love swimsuit shopping though. It's always a bit of a drag trying to find the right one, and when I do it's always more than I want to pay!

5. is there anything you would love to wear, but are timid to try?
I really actually love those fur vests (even though I said I wouldn't go there on my blog). I just don't know if it would make sense for me to have one, here in south Texas. If someone gave it to me as a gift or if I got one on ridiculous sale, I'd be okay with owning one though.

and now for the silly/fun questions:

1. if your style spoke a language, what would it be?
Actually, I think it would speak English with a sweet Texas accent! ;)

2. what cartoon character best reflects your sense of style?
I'm going to have to go with Minnie Mouse on this one! I mean she's always in heels, that's my kind of girl.

3. what time period would you love to have dressed in?
The 1920's (this Great Gatsby!) or the 1960's. I love the silhouettes of both eras.

i hope you had fun meeting kendi! you can get to know here better here.


  1. fun post! I love Kendi... and I just thought, does she really have a Texas accent? I don't even know... she doesn't type in Texan. Hmmmm....

  2. I love Kendi! I adore her style and she's given me so many ideas for the stuff I already own. I did a post on her a few weeks ago :)

    Also, your wedding is so soon! Ahhh!

  3. Kendi is one of my faves. Her blog makes me snort with laughter all the time. Good choice!

  4. Love Kendi! Thanks for featuring her. I love her outfits, this one included.

  5. Thank you for the feature! I'm so flattered!

    And yes, ya'll I do have a Texas accent! ;)
