So this outfit is from this weekend and numero tres of my 30 day challenge. (I’m bilingual, did you catch that spanish?) It was absolutely gorgeous on Saturday, total shorts or should I say jorts weather. The temperature got up in the 80s on Saturday. It was the perfect day for bumming around with friends. Of course I won’t be singing this tune in August when it’s 105 degrees, I’ll be cursing Texas weather and my decision to continue to live here. Until then, rock on spring weather.

You know when you have a really good weekend that you don’t want to end, so you stay up way too late on Sunday night hoping Monday won’t really come around? That was our weekend, and I’m paying for it now with over-caffienated yawns. B and I went to visit our bmff (best married friends forever) in Austin over the weekend. I’m pretty sure all we did was eat and laugh. In that order. Whoever came up with the idea of the 5-day work week, never experienced a weekend like that.
So it turns out that it’s extremely easy to pack when you only have 30 things to choose from. What a deal. Honestly, the real reason I’m doing this is so I don’t have to do laundry for a whole month. Wait, that’s not right is it?
PS — Holy Cow on the giveaway response! Keep ’em coming, you’ve got till Friday 🙂

  1. I really love the layering, your so creative with the way you dress. I also really like this 30 day challenge thing. I've been noticing many blogs doing these similar things and it's starting to inspire me, I've got to think of my own challenge I think.

  2. You're totally inspiring me to rethink what's in my closet and see what I can come up with. I normally just stare at the contents for a few hours thinking "I have nothing to weaaar!" Then I go out and buy new items but still find myself having trouble putting outfits together. Yikes! Anywho-I love your blog, you always make me laugh and you're super stylish and creative. 🙂

  3. I love this outfit, that blue checkered shirt makes me want to go on a picnic, but the weather is really not permitting right now.

    I'm loving your 30 day challenge by the way, can't wait to see what else you come up with.


  4. Your outfit is so cute!

    I'm in love with those Target gladiators (the mini wedge = LOVE!) but they were just too uncomfortable that I had to return them 🙁 so sad.

  5. Love this outfit… even before I read through about the challenge. Especially into the mix of plaid and floral. Nice job 😉

  6. I love the mixing patterns idea, and the shoes. Oh the shoes.

    The 30 for 30 is such a great idea. I'd do it too if I weren't completely lacking in self control 🙂

    Bravo Kendi for being strong! I'm excited to see what you'll come up with this month!


  7. So cute. I love the plaid and floral mix. I have to tell you I accidentally deleted you from my reading list last week and today I asked myself "Where is Kendi?" And then I found you and I'm okay now. Whew! That was close.
    Good luck on your shopping ban. I'm not so sure I could do it.
