{Sweater: Similar | Skirt: Corilynn | Necklace: Similar}

Somedays you just need to feel lady like and that was today. Yes, feeling like a lady comes in waves for me. I never claimed to be Grace Kelly, ok?

 It is cooling off way more than usual here. I'm not used to the prospect of actually having a fall season that last longer than a month. I mean I'm wearing a sweater and no one is giving me those "oh bless her heart, she's sweating because she's sad it isn't fall yet" sympathy looks. Do you feel that? That's boot weather, my friends. I just got chills thinking about it.

  11. Well aren't you looking preppy today?! I like it! The length of the skirt looks great on you and your tallness. I would have to have it hemmed about a foot :)

  22. I've never commented before, but I just wanted to tell you that I love your style!  It's fun and you take risks, but your styles always look so wearable.  I'm an English instructor at a community college, and I feel like my style is in a rut.  Thanks to your inspiration, I've started to take some fashion risks with my wardrobe, and I feel so much more confident!

  23. Fantastic Skirt. Love it with the pop in the shoes!

  24. Haha bless her heart! Glad it's cooling off there, I'm waiting for it to cool off here in So Ca

    ReplyDelete
  25. I usually jump too quickly into a sweater when it's 68 degrees and end up sweating to death outside!  Glad it's not just me, but it's just so darn exciting to pull out clothes you haven't worn in a while.

    ReplyDelete
  26. So ladylike! We're having a heatwave here. I can't even think about Fall clothing yet; it's too depressing. haha

    ReplyDelete
  27. Completely gorgeous - so sophisticated...love the stripes!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Kendi, I get those looks everyday. I'm from Chicago and recently moved to DFW and people look at me all the time like "why is she wearing that sweater?"

    ReplyDelete
  29. And the award for most adorable skirt ever goes to you!  I also LOVE your shoes.  I think you were wearing these in the very first post I ever read of yours many months ago.  Hope you're having a lovely Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sadly, I'm that girl wearing a sweater and sweating. It is so flippin' hot in SoCal still and all I want is to wear some BOOTS! Is that too much for a girl to ask!?

    P.S. I love your ladylike look. It's very, well, ladylike. :)

  35. I'm loving this lady look! Corilynn makes such beautiful skirts. However, on a graduate student's budget, I'm afraid they're inaccessible as of now.

  42. Gorgeous... as always!

    I'm a very infrequent commenter, but daily follower. I adore your style (particularly anything high waisted with blue and white stripes!), so lovely and put-together, and also so practically pinch-able! It is inspiration, followed by "yes, I can do this!". 

    So lovely to have somewhere to go to for fashion help. Thank you x

  57. hehe, I love sweater weather but only when it's chilly enough for a couple of layers. I do not appreciate it when the weather goes full-on Siberia on me.
    Really cute outfit Kendi.

  58. I've seen this skirt elsewhere and always thought it looked a little frumpy. Your styling changed my mind. The simple white sweater top and bright heels won me over!
