8.30.10dI can not believe it is August 30th. This month has flown by. Time flies when you document what you wear every day on the internet.*
It has finally dipped below 100 degrees here. It hung around 89 today, so very nice. That’s why I busted out the old cardigan. I can just smell fall, hanging around like that creepy kid in jr. high that had a crush on you but you were way too tall for him. Like a foot taller, so it would have been weird to date, you know? But then you might have dated him for three days, and then you broke up with him one night while rollerblading. After that you’d see him creeping in hallways just like the season of fall. See? That made complete sense. You thought I was just going off on some random dialogue again.
Shout out to reader Jessica who works at Anthropologie and is so nice and always says hello when we go in. Thank you for believing me when I told you that my purse would beep when I went through the sensor detectors. I promise that I did not steal anything. But I can’t speak for my husband. He works alone. I’ll give him a good pat-down tonight. (too much?)
Hey, hey check out my interview over at Modly Chic, only if you want. No pressure. Of course there might be a quiz later this week, but it’s up to you…pretty please?

  1. You always look so great in everything! I'm honestly in awe. I like one out of every five outfits I wear but you always look so freaking cute.


  2. Ah, junior high. Possibly the most awkward time of a human being. At least for me. No creepy kids who smell weird were hanging around corners, I think.

    I love how you took the traditional concept of shoes matching the belt and made it so simply chic. I love the light tan color!

  3. Love this! I love how the belt and clogs match (love those clogs) and how you paired them over the dress and cardi! I think I have that same cardi, except in bright purple…love it! And will be sure to check out your interview!

  4. I think it's awesome how much you are wearing those fantastic shoes. I really want some… early Christmas present to myself? Oh wait, I think I already used up the non-existent Christmas fund in February. And the pay-the-bills fund. Oops. Anyway, you look great! 🙂

  5. want shoes! want the shoes!!! I didn't see them at my store. bummer days.

    I'm living vicariously.
    I'll check out your interview at Modly Chic right now! I love Katy! 🙂

  6. Thanks for the shout out! Lol, Everything from the gap beeps. After you left I realized I forgot to ask what did you find! Well, I had my boss follow your husband around so I think he's okay, at least for now. I hope to see you soon! -Jessica

  7. Considering I'm more like a foot shorter than anyone else, I can't really relate to the story. 😉 {Oh lawd, I hope I wasn't the creepy kid…}

    Love the outfit! It's awful when we end up considering 89 cool enough to wear a cardigan. Holy hot summer.

    Hope you have a great day!

  8. Thanks for the shoutout. And I love the comparison of the approach of Fall and that creepy kid in jr. high – so true! LOL. – Katy

  9. It's been waaay hott here too! Like, Boob Sweat hot. I'm waiting for a little break in the heat myself, which means, rain. Love the eclectic outfit today 🙂

  10. Great outfit. I've yet to belt a cardigan in the fear that the bottom will make me look every more hippy [as in bigger hips, not like a flower child]. Also, this post make me literally laugh out loud. You're hilarious.

  11. Cute! I can't wait to put together fall outfits… and I always love reading your posts they are so amusing 🙂

  12. Just read your interview…When I first moved to my small beach town, a few of the women asked if I was a lawyer…this is just another fact to add to the older version of Kendi theory.

  13. kendi! you dress in the dark EVERY single day? I've always loved your style, but I'm even more impressed now!

  14. Kendi- Love the outfit! I'm new to your blog but it's one of my favorites that I read. I even love the random dialogue.

    Have you checked your purse for the little sensor tag that would set it off? Last year on Black Friday, my Coach wallet set off all the alarms until a kind salesperson took it from me and bent the sensor. It doesn't do that anymore. 🙂

  15. I think I dated that same kid in jr. high, although our relationship only lasted the one day. I found him on Facebook recently. Funny- he hasn't grown. I'm a new reader- love you blog!

  16. you look so chiccc with that cardigann!! im loving it!! :DD the clogs and the belt is matchy" 🙂
