Fourth Grade

I've had these jeans for a while but I believe this is their first appearance on the blog. Everyone I'd like you to welcome my banana legs. They are pleased to meet you as well. 
 
I didn't realize that when I started my blog about three years ago that I would a) eventually run out of things to talk about and b) want to talk about the same thing again and it would get awkward. As I was looking at my pictures today I thought "wow I really like to dress like a third grader." I sat down to write my post and remembered that aw, yes I've written that post before. In an eerily similar outfit, too. So I'm at a crossroads -- do I take the lazy road and just link the post here and say "ditto" or do I take the high road come up with a whole new take on wearing bright, unmatched colors all of the time? 
 
I say ditto

  1. I'm actually a pretty big fan of the polka dots plus the banana legs. But what I really need to know is: how long did that hat actually stay on your head?

    If you say longer than 5 minutes, I'm going to doubt your veracity as a blogger.

    Oh, and sitting down to blog something and realizing that you're repeating yourself...yeah, totally done that, and I haven't been blogging nearly as long as you have nor do I have an exclusively style-related blog.

    Sad, sad, sad...

  4. Love this color palette! In my case, I tend to either dress like an 8 year old or an 80 year old, so I feel your awkwardness!

  21. Oooooh, so a fan of the yellow and brown. Pinning that bad boy, or girl...

    If you'd like to, or any other readers out there wanting to help as sister out, I'm having a poll on my blog today. Pick the 30th item! Sound familiar ::cough cough, Winter 2011 remix::

    I'm the ultimate creeper.

  22. Katie -- yes I am! It's from Anthropologie. I linked it above but it looks like it is sold out online. However, I got it in store just a few weeks ago and they had plenty! You might want to check there. I'll try to find a similar one to post online. :)

  25. I have no problem repeating a look because that is the result of me establishing my style. My problem is that I have two conflicting personas. One is a third grader and the other is a super sophisticated lady. My closet is bipolar because of this.

  26. You are too cute. Actually though. And you come up with the best outfits - I'm so obsessed with this one!

  27. Maybe you could just build on the theme by doing a side-by-side of "today" Kendi and actual elementary school Kendi. I'm very curious to know if you actually dressed this well when you were little. I know I sure didn't.

  28. Love the colors with this one! And cute stocking cap! Only in Texas do y'all wear stocking caps for fashion. Where I come from - that sucker would be pulled down much lower on your head to actually keep your ears warm! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Such a cute look! Loving your knit cap! I need to get my hands on one of those---and actually wear it!

  31. Nothing wrong with the grade school look! I wish I had dressed this well as a 4th grader. I still have nightmares of the short bowl cut hair I had. Besides I'm wearing my owl sweater from Old Navy today.

  38. So, normally your look is pretty cute but this is just not a great outfit - you *do* look like you're trying to be a high schooler, not a good look, even for high schoolers.

    ReplyDelete
  39. those yellow pants are a great shade of yellow!  i have a pair, but the yellow is just not quite right.  you know what i mean.  like instead of banana legs, they look like... husks of pale sweet corn?  without the bumps.  or the husk part.  dammit.  what am i talking about.

  70. 1. Those are two of my favorite outfits of yours
    2. My boyfriend often comments often how my style is similar to his 7 year old daughter's (and it's true. I'm just saying, have you been into a Justice lately?)

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hahaha! I like your style. Each look is always different, but similar. I like how you incorporate various colors into your looks. Like this look, I like the pairing of mustard and burgundy! :)
