Fashionably Late


You know those days that you wake up with the best of intentions, you jump out of bed, give yourself a high five for rocking second day hair that only looks like a day and a half, and you share your to-do list with everyone you see so that they will be impressed with you? Well. That was SUPPOSED to happen today. But alas today I was about two hours behind on everything. And I do mean everything. Except for this post. It was 8 hours behind. I’m pretty sure this is the definition of success. 

But to make up for it, I found the prettiest fall tree I could find. Yes, friends. This is the prettiest tree I could find. Autumn has decided to grace us with her presence on this fine late November day. She’s too is bit late. Like 3 months late. Me and Autumn, we will get along just fine.

    I love the sweater/polka dot combo with the jeans. I have been looking for pants this color but only found some in thick legging material-not flattering. I'm happy that fall finally made your acquaintance!

    Aw, that's the best tree you have? So sad. But on the bright side, that is a fantastic mix of prints you have going on. I love the Anthropologie sweater and how you styled it.

    Ahh Kendi, you're so gorgeous!  These photos are fall-tastic!  I just ordered those booties and the Diamond in the Rough skirt from Bloom yesterday and I'm SO excited for them to get here!  I'm already planning holiday outfits around those two items!

    I would have never put those patterns together and I feel so dumb for not realizing they would look so good together! You always have a magical way of making things come together that I never would have thought would work.

  16. I just love that shade of red in your hair. Almost burgundy-ish. I think your pants really bring it out.

    I am always procrastinating on things I need to get done.  The only thing I am really good at is being at places on time – that's my #1 pet peeve.  I love how the polka dot pulls the look together.
