Today I had a really good hair day. Unusually good, in fact I suspected that it was raining this morning when I peeked outside. A hair day this good calls for rain, much like a just washed car or a clean, white shirt. I peeked outside and nothing but stillness.
In a way, This is how the last few years of my life has been. I dream up a plan that works perfectly in my head (or in this case on my head) and I try to stay on that plan, only to watch the wind blow it down. Life tosses me a curveball and I have to make a choice — stay with the plan or go with the wind. Somedays I play it safe, I stick to the plan. Other days I go with the wind. To be honest, those are the better days. Those are the better choices.
If it’s for or against you, go where the wind takes you.
I love that skirt, it is so cute! PS, I love good hair days too! Glad to know it wasn't ruined by rain!
OMG A sequin pencil skirt!!?? I am in LOVE! Amazing! You look fabulous as always 🙂
this may just be my new all time favorite.
Kendi, Could you oblige us by taking a picture of your closet someday? I can only imagine what it looks like.
Love the skirt. And your hair still looks fab.

LOVELY. so well put. And that little sun flare over your head KILLS me.
Dear sweet naive friend. It looks like a freaking hurricane. You would be so disappointed. I'll take a picture of it and post it. And then you'll feel sorry for me as to why I do not hang anything up.
Give me a few days to clean, k?
Gorgeous outfit! You are so effortlessly beautiful! You're right, the best days are the ones where you go where the wind takes you.
Sparkles and leopard print? I'm a fan!
Gorgeous as always but I have to say my first reaction was "mermaid". Who doesn't like mermaids?!
Oh, sweet friend! This is for you.
Sometimes I like a nice, good wind in my hair.
It makes me feel like a model with a fan blowing in front of me.
First thing that came to mind, sexy. That first picture with the coyly raised eyebrow, job well done.
I agree with you on the wind aspect. I've been feeling some pretty strong gusts lately…
LOVE the skirt…Im totally loving stripes right now…really great outfit:)
That skirt is aaaaaaaaaaaamazing.
CLOTHED MUCH, a modest fashion blog
That skirt is made of epic win. Love the combination with stripes.
That skirt just made my entire life.
Lou — Crack me up. I can see the mermaid reference for sure.
Amy — one of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies.
Wow, you look amazing! So classy. I want that skirt… but with my bottom, I'd turn it into a skankfest.
okay i just found your blog. you are so beautiful! and i really love your style! thanks!
Too cute I like the mix of patterns and textures! I have that shirt also and love it…comfy and stylish can't beat that!
I always have good hair days when I have no place special to go, or no one to see me that day…its like Karma is toying with me!!
Those shoes are truly fabulous!
And fantastic words of wisdom. Its usually scarier to go with the wind, but sometimes you just gotta do it!
Wow..everything about that outfit is perfect! I adore that skirt and the hint of cheetah from your belt is perfect. Love it!!
You look incredible, Kendi! That sequin skirt is amazing.
I love this post! That skirt is aaawesome. This whole outfit is great

Kendi!! How the heck do you make target and f21 pieces look like a million bucks!! I love it lady!! 🙂
xx Love & Aloha
Kendi, love the outfit. Where's the belt from? It's a subtle but great touch!
Verrrry tricky of you to subtly sneak in a life lesson in what was a deceptively silly post about hair days. I see what you did there. 🙂
I also really love the picture where the light bounces off all those sequins. oooh, the sparkles.

I've been looking for a skirt with just the right amount of sparkle, and this looks like it might be perfect. Love what you paired it with!
Hi! thank you so much for answering my hair question. and i am looking forward to the hair tutorial vid, i hope you post it soon.
i checked out your 30 for 30 challenge, i can't join it just yet but thank you for giving me an idea on how to grow my wardrobe. =D
i need help with the accessories, i have zero belts due to an ample sized waist, he he. and the layering part [i live in very hot country] is a challenge. =D
but i'm sure glad i found you, you are my kind of style. =D
Love the mix of patterns and fabrics. Perfect outfit!!!
Now that I know F21 has that skirt I must have it! Where is the belt from? Love that too!
I think the wind makes your good hair day even better! You look great in these pics, and as always I love your outfit! I would normally be nervous to buy such a sequinced skirt, but yours is super cute!
love this 🙂 what a great way to way sequins during the day!! LOVE.
I love this skirt! Did you dare to wear this to work? Wonderful
That skirt is GORGEOUS.
Is it itchy?
sequined skirt with striped shirt? a-mazing!! Love it. Definitely go with the wind. You're right, better days, better choices. More fun!!
I'm dying for a thin leopard belt! Is your's J Crew?
Love the high-waisted skirt. So chic! And I'm even happier to discover that it is sequined. Beautiful, as always. And stunning photography, as always.
Sorry guys, I forgot to list my belt. Dang.
It's from J.Crew Outlet, so essentially J.Crew. I saw one in there the other day too, so I know they still have them!
Sequins are so popular right now I've been noticing! I'm wanting them!
LOVE your skirt! The whole outfit is just perfect. I think I will be copying it, if you don't mind ; )
although i appreciate and laugh at your sarcasm, what you have said about going where the wind takes you, is some of the truest words i've ever heard! definitely something i needed to hear 🙂
I love the skirt! I want it so bad!
What a beautiful outfit! Your hair still looks great despite the wind. 🙂
i LOVE that skirt! please say you bought it recently.
Kendra — I did! About two weeks ago. I couldn't find it online however, so that's frustrating. But yes, I bought it recently. The shoes were the only thing not bought this year.
Love that you paired that sequin skirt with a leopard belt!!! Never would have thought to do that but you look fabulous!
love the belt=)
Hi! I´m brazilian. Every day, i see your blog. I´s so good. I like so much your clues. And the photos are very produced. Congratulations!
I love this mix – the stripes and sequins just work so well together. And I love your thoughts in this post. Beautiful, Kendi.
This is such a cool skirt!
Just Better Together
Seriously – stripes, sparkles, leopard print, and booties – how do you pull it off so extraordinarily well?! You truly have a gift! I love everything about this outfit, and the windswept hair – makes for better pictures 🙂
Awesome – just awesome.
Small Time Style
Beautiful outfit and even more beautiful words 🙂 This was a really great post!
And that last picture with the sun flare is awesome.
You have wise words there Kendi! I probably need to learn to just go with the wind a little more often, thanks for reminding me of this 🙂
Your hair still looks amazing!
very cute and nicely put together!
I have been reading your blog since you posted it on the Loft Facebook Page. You have a great sense of fashion!
A good hair day : what's that ???
I agree! and you look good.
You WOULD rock a black sequin pencil skirt and style it up to perfection! And such wise words Kendi, I hope the wind blows you towards a plan that sticks and makes you happy xoxo
Aren't the best plans the ones that don't turn out the way you expected?!
Loving this look and the awesome sequin skirt. So fun and flirty!
Love love love the skirt! This outfit is definitely one of my favorites!
haha good hair days totally always get ruined by rain, you're right. although i live in providence where it rains every other day anyway, so good hair days are pretty much always useless…haha
but anyway the combination of sequins, stripes and leopard print is PERFECT. i must must do an outfit with those three elements!
Oh those days when your hair is perfect are fantastic, you feel different 😀
PS love the t-shirt & the necklace perfect!
This is some classy shit. I love it!
Your pictures are sooo good! I love all of your shoes, also I have really been into leopard lately! over all cute outfit girl!!
Love this look! my favorite so far!
Gorgeous photos as always! I love the different textures between the sequins and the animal-print belt. I agree, your hair looks quite lovely.
love love the skirt- and that skinny belt!
I LOVE this look. It is so fabulous! I wouldn't have thought to add the brown belt. Nice touch!
great analogy! I definitely agree.
That skirt is AMAZING. And your hair looks good even blowing around in the wind!
Such a sparkly and chic outfit!
You're so damn fancy!! Love it. And the hair definitely looks perfect.
