Home Again

9.17.10dTruth: I actually wore this yesterday, and what I posted yesterday I wore the day before. Today I went naked, but with a blazer of course. No matter what I’m office appropriate, always.
Wow. I’ve got to stop with the maudlin posts. You guys are going to start sending me flowers and singing telegrams to cheer me up. Wait a minute — that sounds kind of nice. Could you maybe throw in a back massage too? I’m feeling down again..
So let me show you around our house. This is my couch. That is my dining room. And that blank wall over there used to have a fine collection of plates before they fell off the wall to their untimely demise. After putting 500 holes in the wall to hang 500 things, we later found out that our walls might have been made out of paper. That’s just a guess, I’ve yet to throw water on the walls to see if they melt.
But we love it, paper walls and all. Home sweet rental.

    I love these photos the bestest…and I think you look the bestest I've ever seen you look.
    Funny how a happy home can do that.

    Maybe I was blind my last several visits to your blog. Whatever the case may be I like the new(?) layout. I also am loving your couch and pillows, as well as, your outfit today.

    You look great as always! =]

    This looks like an Ikea ad, but BETTER! I love it.

    Your house looks awesome! I want to see more of it. Your outfit is really cute, too, and I love that the red in the pillow matches your shoes. (Or at least it looks like it does.) Happy weekend!

    this is one of my favorite posts; love the pictures and seeing a glimpse of your home. Tell your hubs he did a beautiful job on the photos. It's not easy getting such great lighting indoors. BTW, I just nicked my freshly painted nails typing this…oh well.

    You're wonderful :). I'm always afraid of wearing shirts that are cut like that-I don't quite know how to wear them!

  • http://saladdiva.wordpress.com Lizzy

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/12163015039548827490 Kathleen

    Ha I think I'd take paper walls over our walls: 100% studs! I can't hang a picture without having to get out the drill. Annoying!

    I like this top. Very casual but still cute!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/01178211126077705181 RosaLovesDC

    I've found most stylish women have stylish homes. Thanks for confirming this.

    P.S. I've owned and rented. Renting is a lot easier.

    Great sense of humor + Great Style = Kendi Everyday!

    Glad I stopped by – thanks!

    My couch is from Ikea circa 2007. It was the Kramfors series, which sadly they no longer carry. :(

    How about "a humorous blog with serious style?" Is that too cheesy?

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/00473592945450317042 Dawn

    Love these pics – some of my favorites! And your skin/makeup looks spectacular! If you haven't already, you should consider doing some posts on your makeup and/or skincare routines.

    Just seeing the couch, it looks like *you*. Would love to see more of your home. Love this easy outfit, too.

    Kendi – i can always count on your blog for some sarcasm and a laugh. thanks for that – not to mention the fashion. :)

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/03636415189598307641 Elizabeth (Betsy)

    such a cute apt!! I love the mirror over the table. Its nice to see fashion bloggers in their homes. I have a degree in fashion but currently design home goods. I believe that both our outfits and our houses are extensions of ourselves… both of yours are adorable :-)

    visiting your post and I'm afraid I'll become a woo girl, because your posts are high fashion and amazing

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/13710045391852541389 Lauren

    Love this! Your writing always brings a smile to my face. Which I think is good… I wouldn't want the smile anywhere else. And I tried the naked blazer look, but it seems a bit drafty, thinking it would be better with a scarf.

    Your house looks homey, I enjoy it.

  • Cirquedefou

    This is my absolute favourite look of yours! They are so many great outfits that you have put together, but this one really speaks to me. It looks comfortable, flow-y, fun, and breezy with nice pops of colour. Oh and nice pillows too:)

    Thank-you for the inspiration!
