The End

I know you aren’t going to believe me but this is not my house or my balcony. Our house doesn’t have a balcony, in fact I’m not even sure if we have an attic. But I am 99% sure we don’t have a second floor. Of course who needs a second floor to have a balcony? I could just knock out our bedroom wall and put up some columns. And some of the huge lion statues, so people know we are high class. 
Hence, why I went with a style blog instead of a decor blog. 
This will round up my 30 for 30 summer remix.  (I’ll try to post all 30 looks this week, promise.) I always feel like I just finished running a marathon after a 30 for 30. Although technically I’ve never run a marathon. I have run a full mile though. I know, you are impressed and probably thinking, ‘how does this girl have time to run a whole mile once in her life and wear clothes?’ 
It’s a gift.

    What a great outfit Kendi….there was just a pair of ikat coral flats on sale at Banana that would also been perfect with that outfit….

    Ha, ha … I have power walked a marathron. Was sore for days … But I understand your metaphor for the 30 for 30. I think its more like having children: it seems like a good idea at the time, the first 2/3’s are good, the end is a little painful, you kinda glad when it’s over, but look back at the journey with joy.

    I don’t actually have children, but I can imagine it would be like this …

    I really enjoyed your outfits this 30!  Esp. that floral shirt.  Super fab.  I just started a 15 for 15 with just clothes and I’m quite happy!  I think it was the shoes that bummed me out when I was doing the 30 three 30s ago!  I’m trying to wear a different pair of shoes every day! 🙂

    Yea, congrats on finishing the 30 for 30 race!  I just finished the other day, and I agree that it totally feels like running a marathon.  Now if only getting dressed every day could burn the same amount of calories as a marathon i’d be set!  I love that you ended on a nice simple note.  Simple white tank, red skirt, and some snazzy little red accents.  Super cute as always 🙂

    Kendi, do you have the red UO heels or the red-orange? I just purchased the red ones and they are so, so pretty! But, they are RED… the ones I see you wear here look almost like a coral color? Is it just my computer screen? I just can’t tell if your skirt/heels are reddish or red-orangeish… 🙂

    I always enjoy your 30 for 30, but I think I enjoy your first outfits after you’re done because that’s when you get to wear whatever you want and whatever you’ve been wanting to wear for the whole month.  You’ve got style, girl!  And you’re entertaining to read.  Can’t wait to see all 30 outfits together.  It went by so fast!
