It's hard to be honest sometimes. Not like in the sense of telling the truth, just in the sense of not telling the whole truth. See the difference? So here is the truth: My brain and most of it's creativity is gone. I don't know if its the holidays, the traveling, my week-long cold that I did in fact conquer or the fact that I've eaten chocolate truffles and french fries every single night for about a week but something in my brain is clogged. Gosh, so many things to blame it on, how will I ever choose?

This is weird because I'm not sad or anything, I mean for goodness sake Christmas is 5 days away how could I possibly be sad? Just distracted, I suppose. It's just that my brain doesn't want to move. Is this happening to anyone else?

In other news, I don't want to take this outfit off, ever. It's like wearing pajamas, but better. I also have a small blanket around my neck, so it's easy to nap at anytime. I can just use my scarf as a pillo...  Oh okay, I see what's going on. It's becoming clear as to why my brain won't wake up. I'm dressing in nap-time chic. Expect heels tomorrow.

  2. I have that same cardi. My husband doesn't like it because he says it's University of Texas colors (OK for you, not OK for an Arkansan). I never thought of it with navy. I love it!

  3. Love this outfit! I have a black maxi I think I'm going to try the look with. Thanks for the inspiration. You rock!

  4. The color of that scarf is wonderful--and it looks so comfortable. The perfect amount of earthy for a cold, snowy day like the one we're having up in Minnesota.

    Don't worry--your creativity will come careening back. It looks like it never left!

  5. ♥ your naptime chic!
    Gorgeous colours, beautiful silhouette.

    I've been feeling pretty uninspired since my flight home got cancelled the other day but I think I could do with some naptime chic myself for the upcoming 20 hour replacement bus ride :)

  6. sounds like you're in a bit of a french fries & truffles coma! it happens. i was in a bit of a pizza coma last night and basically fell asleep after demolishing half a large pizza by myself. :P

    i hope the holidays allow you to relax and have some "Kendi time".

    i absolutely love the colors in this outfit. the fact that it's super comfortable is probably the biggest bonus! xo

  7. This outfit is absolutely adorable!! I love the beautiful mix of colors here and the scarf does look super warm! I don't blame you for wanting to take a nap. :)

  9. And I was dumb enough to think only Angelina can pull the maxi look off!! You look lovely Kendi!

  10. Okay, favorite outfit of all time- ALL the right colors and you look amazing, AND warm and comfy. Check, check, check.

  11. I felt that way the week before Christmas break, I had so many things to do, but I blocked them out of my mind, because I wasn't motivated to d them.

    ReplyDelete
  12. this is making me want to nap, also. My brain stopped working on Friday.;)LOVE this look - so colorful and comfy!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I have definitely been having that problem as of late as well. I have a feeling it will clear up at Christmas when all the excitement hardcore takes over.

    I normally don't like the maxi dress look, but I really like this outfit! comfy and cute : )

  14. I love you Outfit!
    And thanks to you I can't think of anything but a nap right now ;)

  16. First of all you outfit it's completely adorable! ... Scarf is great too! ... About your state of mind? ... It happens to all us too, and it's totally logical, year's almost done so our body/brain tends to relax! Don't worry Christmas will cheer you up ;)

  17. Hahaha...LOVE this post..I know what you mean...Ive been feeling the same way, then I figured it out: I was too busy to think, yep...Ive had sooo much going on in my mind at the same time, that I couldn't break things down into SINGLES ...totally attacked my "head list" this past weekend, and now I'm back on track with Xmas and feeling pretty peppy again!!

    Can't wait to see your heels...maybe they will be red?

    Hugs sweets!

  18. love the mustard yellow/navy blue combo!

  19. I am so onboard with the brain being mush and inspiration being absent. I also have no vocabulary, at all, not even little words. I'm hoping this is all due to the busyness of the season.

    When my brain is mush I like to go to comfy outfits and so this is right up my ally. Enjoy being cozy!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I call this look snuggy chic. Here's my version of wearing a blanket out.

  21. Kendi, who cares if it's naptime chic? It's chic! I mean, really really really chic. Because would I ever have thought to wear a maxi in the winter? And would I have made it look adorable and season appropriate with booties, a sweet circle scarf, and a bright pop of color from a sweet cardigan (seriously, you look amaing)? No, no I would not. So rock that naptime look. And use it as an excuse to actually take a nap.

    Good luck with getting out of your hazy state! I think it's just pre-holiday fatigue. I just want to sleep and eat.

  22. You truly are the queen of mixed neutrals.

  23. Naptime chic is my favorite! And your outfit is the reason I adore maxi dresses at any time of the year.

  24. I'm having to take a break from my blog due to brain drain. I have no idea what is wrong. . .

    At least you look cute and comfortable!

  25. hehe my brain's mushy, too. I don't feel like dressing up, eat only sugar and carbs, and lay in bed. I need a healthy January!

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is a beautiful color combination on you - the warm orange paired with the navy and soft grey scarf isn't one that I often see - it's definitely an inspiration for this reader! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm feeling drained too and it's affecting my energy overall. I've been reading that sometimes it's best to take a break when you're uninspired or drained but you can't do that!! I look forward to your daily posts too much =). Cute outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Such an adorable (and apparently quite comfortable) outfit!

  29. Looove that outfit!!!
    And I know what you mean...my brain is kinda dead too..

  33. I always think of maxi dresses as a summertime treat, but I love the way you've styled it here for cooler weather. Whenever my brain starts to go dead I know that it's time for me to just take a break. Don't worry, I'm positive that inspiration will strike again for you soon.

    ...Cute outfit too.

    ReplyDelete
  37. This looks sooo comfortable! I love the blue and orange together too!

    My brain has been a little clogged lately too, I personally blame it on the eggnog and christmas cookies that I've been devouring nonstop. I think I'll eat salad the whole month of January.

  38. I wore basically this same outfit this weekend that I will be blogging later, and you're right, it is awesomely comfortable! I like the colors of your outfit, they pair well!

  40. What a wonderful outfit...I love the look! I think my 24 year old daughter would love this look as well...I will make sure she sees it.

  41. I work @ Gap and I saw that dress and since I'm too short to wear it I always wanted to know how someone taller would style it! You nailed it! I'm slightly jealous lol

  46. Such a great dress! You look very long :) I really like the color combination, it really works for you. Those infinity scarves are the best!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hmm, you're making me want to pull out my maxi-dress that I swore I'd only ever wear again when pregnant... luckily it's in the basement with the rest of my maternity clothes. Um, it's not nearly as flattering as yours!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love this outfit! so chic! esp the big snood :) x

    ReplyDelete
  49. Thursday I woke up to almost a foot of snow and the only thing that was going to make the day bearable was my most cozy sweater. Sometimes, especially now when it's freezing, you have to be comfortable. But hey, at least you look chic doing so!

  54. That totally happens to me most years. I'm trying to break out of it so I let Bob turn on the Christmas music before Halloween this year. :)
    Maybe once you get some presents you'll feel better. Tell Brian you want one early!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Your outfit does look comfy, but moreso cute! Since I'm especially sleepy right now, I wish I had a pretty cowl like that to cuddle with. Ha! I'm thinking about making one...

  59. I like this outfit. You've accessorized the simple dress beautifully--naptime chic or not, haha! I really want to find a pretty maxi-dress like this one.

  60. I hate when my brain shuts down on me. There are times when it's on a roll and it keeps going...and going, but then there are times when it just gives up. Everyone has their dry spells.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Maybe you're just in need of a break.. mentally and physically?

    Just thought that because sometimes what you're describing is exactly what happens to me when I haven't realised how busy I've been and how I need a bit of a rest..

    Love the colours you've been wearing! Especially that gorgeous cardi... J Crew doesn't ship to Australia unfortunately, so I had to find something similar on eBAy... Gorgeous blog Kendi, one of my faves!

  62. All these colors are so lovely. Love a good maxi dress.
    Well, at least your brain is shutting down during the holiday season, and not at rush-hour at work or something. Maybe you just need to have some nice "vegging" time. Happy Holidays, Kendi!

    ReplyDelete
  63. this outfit proves you can be as comfortable as in sweats but still look amazing.
    i just adore the colour of your scarf.

  66. Sounds like blogger burnout. Relax, eat more truffles, and fries. Don't be afraid to take some time for yourself. I know we want as much Kendi as we can get but you don't need to succumb to selfish wants.

  72. Love the colour of the cardigan! x

  73. Oh girl, I'm so in that slump right now. I'm not either of those things either but for whatever reason, I can't get back in action. I'm a bit stuck and a bit distracted for no real reason. I want to blame it on the hustle and bustle of the holidays but I haven't done much so I can't quite figure it out.

    However, you look completely ravishing in this look. I agree with the whole long dress thing. It feels like pajamas. I'm stuck on anything long these days pairing with a long, chunky sweater too. Ahh, bliss.

    BTW, saw you're part of (shh, you know what) and that's so exciting to be in it together! Can't wait to see yours<3

  80. ohhh love this.

    Especially because it looks like something I can wear with by prego belly.

    You are so darn pretty Kendi!

  81. Thanks Kendi, I bought a pair of brown boots as a Christmas present to myself (because I loved yours) and couldn't find a way to wear them that looked like me. (I'm too big to pull off skinny jeans or leggings) This outfit is definitely me!!! Thanks for showing me how to be comfortable and fashionable at the same time.
