Good Morning

10.20.10e{Shop: Blazer, Shoes, Similar Pants}I missed an outfit post yesterday due to an emergency. An emergency performance by Sufjan Stevens in Austin. I had to be there you guys, he couldn’t have performed without me. You understand right? Anyways, I wore a repeat of this outfit so its not like you missed anything. Oh but you did. You missed an amazing concert, not to rub it in. (But it was amazing.)

So to make up for not taking pics yesterday, B said that we could take outfit pics this morning instead of waiting until after work. I thought this was a good idea until I remembered the Morning Face β„’.

10.20.10fOh that Morning Face. Yeah the one that’s puffy and with pillow lines still on it. The kind of angry, kind of confused looking face. We gave it five minutes to wake up and then shot…guns. We shot guns this morning. I’m kidding we shot photos. But we could have had we wanted to. No one was around to stop us.
On a lighter note, I got my jacket yesterday for $50 at Loft. That’s not a bargain, Kendi! Yes it is friends, when it originally cost $128, that is a bargain. They are having a 50% off sale. If you are not heading there after work, I’m starting to think that you don’t like saving money. And if that’s true, I’m not sure we can be friends.

  2. Thank you for showing me how to wear a sweatshirt-type blazer! I was at a total loss on how to dress this up. And yes, that IS a steal!

    Love your blog! I'm a loyal follower!

  3. I'm pretty much in love with your scarf. I saw the shop links at the bottom and got really excited.

    But alas, it was not one of them. But don't worry! My saddness of short lived, because you made me laugh.

    Cassidy — H&M unfortunately doesn't sell online or I totally would have listed it. Such a bummer too, since I live in Texas and they have ZERO stores in this state. Maybe there is a location where you live??

    Ha ha indeed it is a deal if we're talking about the loft here! I am so in love with that scarf/bandana. I've been searching for an old lady one at thrift stores but as of now…they look too old lady so I'm holding out for a good one.
    p.s. My morning face is worse than yours, be proud.

  19. Kendi,

    I was suppose to work late, go home eat left overs for dinner and pack for my trip this weekend. and NOW… I'm going to end up spending an hour at Loft and not get my suitcase packed. I guess I will just where whatever I buy. BUT I still will blame you for my empty suit case. THANKS!… but seriously thanks for the heads up πŸ™‚

    I don't wanna know anything about LOFt sales or how great the sufjan stevens concert was.

    SO JEALOUS. I definitely do not need another reason to shop.

    Nonetheless, you looked uber chic as always. Such a simple look but the scarf and shoes make it happen.

    Love what you've got happening! πŸ™‚

    I can only take pictures in the morning, right before I go to work. I also have a terrible case of Morning Face almost every day, but it's either taking the pictures with MF anyway, or not taking them at all (which would be pointless, my blog being a style diary and all).

    what I do then, most every morning, is to take the pictures wearing dark glasses. they help me disguise my MF and, in addition, help me overcome my terrible shyness while conveying a certain aura of mystery ("why is she wearing glasses? is she on the police's Most Wanted list?").

    so, I'd hate to be the one to tell you to cover such beautiful eyes (I personally know some people who'd kill me for even suggesting that), but if you ever have to take your pictures in the morning again and the MF is worse than most days, you could try this too.

    Oh, and Morning Face Kendi is a lot more attractive than Morning Face Sara. Morning Face Sara includes Morning Outfit Sara (pj's), complete with fuzzy slippers, polka dot bathrobe, and hair scrunched into a sorta-pony. I commend you.

    I really like this look! I love doing all neutral basics and then pops of color in your accessories (more than one is more fun! Ha, see that rhyme I made there?)…Don't worry, I'm done now.

  53. Kendi,
    glad your fans are forgiving your trip to Austin to see/hear Sufjan Stevens. My daughter-in-law, MY BRIGHTEST DIAMOND, sang with him for a couple tours and is featured on his latest release (I believe latest). So does that make me cool also? Hope so! I'm pretty slow with my SILVER CROWN STYLES blog but got another post up today. Love ya!

    Super cute outfit! I just got my FIRST scarf yesterday. Can you believe it?? I'm about 2 years behind, but oh well. I'm excited none-the-less. Its got several colors which is perfect so I can mix and match. I just found a good blog on "how to" tie a scarf. Found one that I REALLY liked that looks like a semi french braid, but not really. I'll send you the link if you like.

    So anyway, this is long enough. Sorry to ramble. πŸ˜‰
