On subject: I like this skirt because it comes with a wide elastic waistband therefore I don't even need a belt. It's a lazy girl's dream come true.

Off subject: Have I ever told you about the time I let a girl fresh out of beauty school chop about 10 inches off of my hair? (She said short hair was her speciality. I was powerless.) It was supposed to look like Katie Holmes but instead I looked like a gourd with an ugly wig on*. (This round face can not do short hair. Don't argue with me.) Within minutes, I went from super long hair to hair that couldn't even be wrapped around a curling iron it was so short. As I braved work the next day, I hoped that I was wrong about the cut and that a few compliments would cheer me up.  And then no one said a word to me. No one. After about three months of growth did someone finally ask if I got my haircut. How do you know when you've got a bad haircut? When people don't even lie to your face about it. That's when you know. 

Since then I've let my hair grow with a few trims here and there, terrified of the shears. But looking at these photos I think it might be time for a trim. It's looking a little medieval up in here. 

The only good thing that came out of that haircut (besides the purchase of Jessica Simpson hair extensions, true story) was that's when I knew Bryan's love for me was real. We'd been married for about 2 months when this happened and every day he still told me I was beautiful. He either believed that or he was the only person kind enough to lie to my face. And that in my book is true love. 

(*There are no known photos of this tragedy. And if there were I'd burn their existence before anyone laid eyes on them.)


  1. Haven't we all had that experience? I coped by way of knitted hats, but it was winter so this was doable. Though, that was around the holidays, so there are plenty of pictures of my tragedy.

    I also think your hair looks fabulous in these pics, especially in the top one.

  2. Cute outfit! I love the skirt

  3. I actually think the "medieval" look, works and looks good on you!:)

  4. Love this skirt! I like skirts that flare!

  5. Love the shoes...may need to get a pair myself!

  6. " It's looking a little medieval up in here." lol

  7. Kendi you are so adorable. And your husband's so sweet. :) The same thing happened to me and it was only the boyfriend who told me I looked beautiful. True love indeed. :) <3
