Don’t hold it against me, I forgot to hold up a number five with my hand. I know, I know — you thought that I was really in to this 30 for 30, didn’t you? It’s only to outfit 5 and I’m already giving up.
I wore this outfit today. And yesterday. So technically this is outfit 5 and 6. But just because I like you guys, I’ll count it as one. I also slept in it last night, so that’s 3. And I went to the gym in it. I’m never taking this outfit off — I’ll just pile more clothes on top of it.
This morning, my friend Amy and I went to an Austin fashion brunch put on by Plain Ivey Jane. It was a blast and I made a few new friends. It was so nice to meet everyone! (That means you Indiana, Grechen, Bianca and Sydney — who just happens to be a 30 for 30 remixer.)
Everyone meet my new shoes. Shoes, this is everyone.
They have traveled many miles from an Urban Outfitters warehouse to be with us and will be my 30th item in my remix. (Just so we are clear I bought these babies prior to the challenge.) They were a little nervous since it’s their first outfit ever, but I told them they will be a pros by the time we are done with the remix challenge. Speaking of the remix, how’s everyone’s first week going? I’ll be grading all of you on Sunday. Extra credit will only be granted if you mail me a cupcake from the finest bakery in your town. Sugar is the only bribe I take.

  1. what a thief! everyone knows i came up with the number and word "five."
    i love those shoes, so much that i'm tempted to cheat (already!) on the 30 for 30. stay strong, tania, stay strong.

  2. Great outfit! My 30 for 30 was sent to a screeching halt after I got slammed with a stomach virus and sinus infection. Damn all this rain for keeping me down and sick. I'll be back on track tomorrow! Hopefully!

  3. Those are some fab shoes!!! Such a pretty shade of red.

    So far I'm doing well on the 30 for 30 challenge:) I'm even wearing 2 outfits in one day! One for work and the other for going out. I almost decided to use some clothes that aren't part of my month's wardrobe, but I decided to really use this as a challenge. No cheating for this gal! hehe… And I almost forgot about the no shopping rule and have been perusing Urban Outfitter's sale and reminded myself right as I about checked out. Torture I tell you! LOL

  4. It was so nice to meet you! I am going to implant my husband and I into you and Amy's group of Austin friends. Hope you don't mind. Haha!

    I am super impressed with all you 30 in 30 ladies! I'll do it next time, I promise. I'm still trying to gauge how big I'll be next week let alone in 30 days from now! I'm proud of everyone and want to donate a prize for a drawing for those who successfully complete it!

  5. I really really love this outfit! The lace top with the floral skirt is just perfect! So feminine and pretty!

  6. love the mural background… actually love all your backgrounds! first time in your blog and enjoying your style too…

  7. That background is so awesome…and I love those shoes – I have them in black and thought about maybe getting them in red, but have yet to! I really like how they look on you!

    If you ever come to VA, I'll hook you up with some amazing cupcakes too πŸ™‚ There's a great little shop in the town where I work!

  8. You are so cute! I love this combination (and wish I could get away with it at my office). The 30 for 30's going well so far…We'll see how it goes once I really have to start remixing things though!

  9. oh my gosh! the shoes! the shoes! the shoes! i'm in love. this whole outfit is so cute!!

    p.s. i'm so inspired by your remixing. i am going to start mine next week. i promise!

  10. cute shoes, nice to meet them too! πŸ™‚
    well, i don't think the cupcakes will travel as far as your shoes, however i do have yummy and pretty freshly baked cupcakes posted on my page. i had to do a catering gig today, so how about a virtual cupcake for you!
    ps. i couldn't wear my "30" pieces today πŸ™ do weekends count?

  11. i kind of figured you would have to stop with the numbered fingers because it would get pretty hard once you reached eleven.

  12. my favourite outfit so far! you look wonderful, pretty girl. and I love your shoes, they are such a gorgeous colour.


  13. Oh my gosh I just love this outfit! It's so cute, the shirt is gorgeous and the skirt is just lovely!

    I really want to do this challenge, but almost everything I own are dresses. XD

  14. Lovely new shoes! Urban Outfitters has some great shoes nowadays. I love that lacy top. And what an incredible background!

  15. Your shoes are delightful! This entire outfit is just great, very feminine and fun. I hope those shoes are comfortable b/c my guess is you will want to get some serious use out of them, I know I would.

  16. LOVE the shoes! I have some blue suede heels similar to those (cue the Elvis song) and I love them. May they accessorize many successful outfits. πŸ™‚

  17. Well, hello Kendi. Number 5 is looking great. The shoes were worth the wait.
    Thanks for the mention to Sal…I tracked down your facebook comment. You are terrific, too!

  18. I think the biggest challenge is seeing everyone else's amazing outfits and you aren't allowed to go buy the stuff you want. Oh well, I guess I can just make a list and start saving πŸ™‚

  19. I love that top! The past couple days I haven't really gotten dressed… This challenge could stretch into December at the rate I'm going!

  20. Kendi.. why are you so damn hot girl! πŸ™‚ Your legs are a million miles looooooooooooong. LOVE them.. and I love your new shoes. I've been stalking them on the UO website for weeks, but have resisited the urge to purchase them. Are they worth it?

    xx Love & Aloha

    p.s. I know you're not supposed to be shopping… so why don't you stop by to enter my current giveaway.. winning stuff doesn't count as shopping. πŸ™‚

  21. The challenge is going great. I had an oops with wearing a piece that wasn't in my 30 for 30. However, it was the second outfit of the day.


  22. I swear you just get cuter every day. I started reading your blog last week and man, oh man do you have me hooked. I think I have watched you & your husband do that little dance 30 times already πŸ™‚

    Love your remix challenge and your new shoes but the mural is what really wowed me today. talk about a perfect place for pictures. I can not wait till some large clothing chain swoops you up and makes you their catalog model πŸ™‚

    Couldn't help myself, just had to say HI

  23. Oh that wall.
    Oh those shoes.
    What a great outfit! I don't blame you for wearing it for multiple days as well as to the gym.

  24. Hayhay!
    How are you? Your blog is great and I love your style! I'm glad that I've visited yours.
    Please, check mine, & maybe we can follow eachother? + join my giveaway!

    Thanks and love,

  25. Not that I don't love your clothes…they're amazing. But holy perfect background. I found something like this the other day and now I'm so so so inspired to go take pictures there!

  26. I have that skirt from the gap and when I saw you had it it made me feel so validated, like some awesome celebrity has the same taste I do.

    Though to be fair you make it look way more awesome than I do.

  27. Kendi, basically you are my favorite ever. Reading your blog is like finding the best editorial in the best fashion magazine everyday!!
