Although I'm glad I chopped my locks this time last year, I'm really glad they are getting longer these days. Because let's be honest -- short hair you must wash and style every single day (at least I did -- the bedhead that I awoke with was truly terrifying.) But long hair? Long hair was made to be dirty. Not that my hair is dirty in this post. Oh no I woke up at 4 am, showered, washed and dried my hair just to braid it. I just like the option of it being dirty. (*wink, wink*) I'm always clean, ok? Always.

What is it about floral shirts that make me feel like a flower child? Probably the part that I wasn't alive for any of the 60's or 70's and I don't have a correct grasp on the term 'flower child.' My definition is a hot mess of a person running a shop who likes to braid her hair and wear a flowy floral shirt. It's practically Woodstock over here.

  2. I'm sincerely obsessed with that madwell bag, and your never ceasing amazingly witty references (e.g. Your Floral shirt & Woodstock). 
    All I can say is Thank you ;)

  7. I've always been a short-hair-girl, and having spent the last six months desperately growing my hair I get terrified when my sister tells me off for washing it every day. Such a weird idea for me, I mean: clean hair = clean heart (or something like that!)
    I need to get acquainted with dry shampoo... too many hours being wasted with a hairdryer!

  11. I tried on that shirt at Madewell the other day and talked myself out of "needing" it.  After seeing how cute it looks on you, now I need it!  You look gorgeous!  Love your hair style too.

  17. I love the top. How many braids do you have in your hair? Mine is so thin IDK if that would be a good look. Plus I'm blond. I'd look like a Swedish Milk Maid....But I still want to try. Tutorial?

  18. Girl.... these pants are too tight!  Look at all the wrinkling/creasing/whatever you call it... it completely distracts from whatever else you have going on.  These ripples mean size up.  Sizing up is not a bad thing: sizing up is for comfort, it's for form flattering silhouettes.  Sizing up is our friend.  Oh boy.

  21. those pants!  you look great, don't worry about being dirty.  when you have kids, you can totally get away with washing your hair once a week.  and you have a store. and a blog.  and a busy life. so i think its totally acceptable!  plus you pull it off so cute.

  40. I AGREE! (and not at all in a bad way, here.) Kendi - I love your blog and fashion - but what the seams on your pants are doing is called "puckering" - it's the material/fabric pulling/puckering at the edges of the seams. Sometimes, poorly sewn material can do this - or - when something is just a bit too tight. I'm guessing the coated material doesn't sew very well - and could be causing some of the puckering here. It being a tighter fit could also just be making the puckering worse or more noticeable. Some "skinny" jeans do this, too.

  41. I love you did this with wedges. Too cute!

  54. Hahah I'm thinking the same. I had a very short bob that I would style everyday even when I wanted to be lazy. But since coming to grad school, my hair has GROWN and Im glad since I find styling quite time consuming... and taking away from sleep (not study)!

  69. I don't know if you read all of your comments but I would love to know how to braid my hair like that.  I love that style, but it always seemed too involved for my short attention spanned self.  But it seems, anyway, if you can than maybe it's not as hard or involved as I think.  Ok, maybe that came off as a little condescending, but trust me from reading your blog for a couple of years now it just seems that you appear to be as physically coordinated, technically inept and just plain have the attention span of a toddler as I am.    So if you can point me to a good tutorial for that awesomely cute milkmaid do it would me much appreciated.

  70. Kendi -- love your blog, love your outfits, love your attitude. You have a great body and you show it off well. These skin tight pants to the point of looking sprayed-on-80s-Poison-video however, are not so flattering. I fear what we'd be seeing in your frontal area if your top weren't just long enough to cover it. You've got a lot of support for these pants, but I just gotta be honest.
