Best Weekend Ever

posted on: 7/01/2013

7.1.13-5 7.1.13-2 7.1.13-4 7.1.13-3 7.1.13-1

This weekend was one of the first weekends in a very long time that B and I took off for both days, together at the same time. Literally zero work was done. We sat by the pool, we slept till 8 (which is late for us), we grabbed dinner with friends, we watched movies on the couch, we accidentally killed our plants. All weekend it felt like time was creeping along and it was so nice. A good weekend makes for a good week, I just know it.

Exciting news if you are going to be in Austin in August (or if you want to be in Austin in August): I'll be speaking at the Texas Style Council Conference again this year. Currently I am 100% unprepared, so if you are attending and have any topics you want me to talk to regarding starting your own business, or really anything about entreprenuership, let me know. I am no guru, but I've got a few nuggets of wisdom here and there that I'm happy to pass along. Also, is it weird that I already have my outfits picked out for that weekend? Unprepared for the talk, totally prepared for wardrobe. Seems about right.  

(PS: If you are interested in attending, you can go here to sign up!)

  28. So glad you and B got the opportunity to unwind and connect! My husband and I need that every once in a while too- life can get so crazy busy. Also, love the maxi+denim jacket look! Gorgeous as always, Kendi! Also- I sent you an email, and i'm sure you get MANY in one day or even hour, but just letting you know ;) I'd love to know what you think of my latest post, darling! It's an outfit inspired by 4th of July style!

  64. It's not weird that you have your wardrobe prepared. Sometimes, the only thing in my life that's organized/put together are my clothes.

    And lovely dress! Love it paired with the jean jacket.
