Lots of Dots

This past weekend B and I had a little weekend getaway in Fredericksburg, Tx. Which basically means we went to a lot of wineries and ate a lot of cheese. I also caught up on trashy, reality tv in bed and stayed far, far away from the internet. (Well, with the exception of Instagram. Must. document. everything.) It doesn't take a lot to make us happy. Although I must say I missed the internet and you guys. Even though cheese is an excellent distraction. 
How was your New Years Eve? And even more importantly, how many resolutions have you made and broken so far? I've not broken a-one. Mainly because I've yet to make any. It's hard to expect a whole year of self-improvement, no? That's a heavy contract. So out of everyone you know, I will be the one not becoming a better person this year. Except I'll probably join a gym and forget that I did in about two months. That's always a given.

  12. Ditto on the whole resolutions thing. I feel like resolutions are just doomed to fail. So I don't make any. Problem solved, right?

    P.S. Love the play on dots here and your beautiful brown accessories!

    I love this outfit, since Dressember I have been yearning for a chic selection of jeans, jumpers and boots. I may start a pinterest board (called 'beyond Dressember') and have this outfit on it as my first pin if that is ok by you?

    Sounds like a delightful little trip you had, cheese is the best, I think I have eaten about 2kg of cheese since 20th December (no lie) I should be about 6 dress sizes bigger but cheese is the one thing I can hoover up and just about get away with it! Any excuse eh?!

  22. Love all the dot action today! And I made quite a few New Year's resolutions, but tried to stay vague and small so that no one will know I'm not breaking them (wink). Happy New Year!Morgan

  34. Polka dots on polka dots? Genius! I'm glad to hear that you and B had a nice break with cheese and wine galore, as far New Years resolutions, I don't have any... yet, I'm still deciding on what I really would want to see happen. Anyway, love your outfit and I can't wait for another year filled with fun fashion!

  35. You know what's usually missing from polka dots? More polka dots. I think "more polka dots" should be your one and only NY resolution. Congrats, you've already succeeded.

  36. Haha, always hilarious, Kendi. Love the dots on dots! I've been trying to find something polka dotted lately, and can't find anything I really love!

  43. Every year I make so many resolutions and some of them get accomplished and some of them don't.
    This year I decided to want less and accomplish more.
    To do more and expect less.

  52. Yep, I knew I wouldn't stay with the whole "get fit, get healthy" thing so I broke it into two tiny little goals... 1) Stop going to Starbucks every. single. day. and 2) Drink more water! So far, so good although I practically had to drag myself away from Starbucks this morning! And cheese is the best distraction there is ;) Glad you're back!

  54. I love dots and dots on dots is twice as nice.  I enjoy your posts as much as your outfits.  No resolutions though I'm going to try to get more exercise that involves a little more effort than turning the pages of a book or operating the remote control.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Happy New Year!

    I've only made one resolution... to get dressed at least once on each of the remaining winter weekends. The snow makes me wish I owned a Forever Lazy, so I could be just that. That's ambitious enough, right?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love the outfit. My new year's eve was all right. I mostly spent the evening at home watching Dick Clark's New Year's Eve Celebration while munching on pizza. As for resolutions, I haven't made one yet either haha.

  57. Ooh, I love all of the polkadots, but that sweater in particular is SO pretty. It's the perfect brown. 
    I hope you have a wonderful New Year!

  58. Lessons learned from Kendi today: Wine and cheese are always a good distraction, you can never have too many polka dots, and resolutions were made to be broken : ) I love your monogram necklace!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh love the polkadots over polkadots! Wouldn't have thought about it, what great idea!
    I broke one resolution to eat healthier when I stumbled upon a bacon-wrapped hotdog ten minutes after midnight on January 1st. Did I mention bacon?

  63. I absolutely love the color of your hair! That is the color I have been striving for since I was 15 to no avail.

    A weekend of wine, cheese, and trashy TV sounds like the perfect getaway!

  103. I feel it very important to let you know that I have been stalking these boots for about a year, ever since I first discovered you wearing them last fall, and I finally bought the last pair in my size, online, last week and I'm kicking myself for living so long without them. If you understood the relationship I have with my boot collection, it would all make sense, but in any case, THANK YOU, and I hope you're having a marvelous new year!
