Alright, here is pre-game outfit number 2. I only got 1 load of laundry done yesterday, so I’m wearing a few more 30 for 30 items. Laundry is not on the list of priorities until I don’t have any underwear to wear. Then it’s a problem. (Can you guess which two are in the remix? Hint: it’s not the belt or the tights.) 
My husband and I found a restaurant gift card that a friend gave us a while back so we went out for a surprise date night. Surprise date night? What’s that? That’s where we go and surprise two other people who are on a date by sitting at their table, eating their dinner and drinking their wine. It’s really fun and we didn’t even end up spending our gift card. Most people just get up and leave their whole meal there they are so surprised. 
That’s a lie. We just went on a regular date night, like an old married couple. And we used the whole gift card, so predictable.

  1. that moto jacket is so cute and i can't believe it's from target! i'm still loving all things polka-dots so of course i'm in love with your shirt. such a cute outfit and perfect for date night!


  2. Love how you styled the shorts and the tights…also that is a great leather jacket!
    I cannot wait to see your 30 for 30…you always do such amazing outfits!

  3. I saw this jacket online and was thinking about getting it, but wasn't sure how it was really going to look. After seeing this outfit, I'm definitely buying it!

  4. LOL! You're hilarious! but that's when I do laundry also. I'm guessing your two 30×30 items are the super cute blouse and shorts;)
    btw, your guide is sooo helpful and should be published! 😉

  5. Hm I have yet to venture into the land of tights with shorts, it's probably because I only have old cut-off but this, this is classy!

  6. I love your top! I was in love with the Tucker for Target collection. I am so sad I didn't get it when I had the chance because it is so adorable!

  7. I love your tights with shorts look!

    Also I wanted to let you know that I saw "Red" over the weekend and that you could be Mary Louise Parker's kid sister. The way they styled her in the movie, I kept thinking, "Ohmigosh! Kendi's hanging out with Bruce Willis!" Okay, I didn't really think that, but seriously, you look related.

  8. You and Brian pretty much have to do a surprise date night now. Betcha you're sorry you even mentioned it. I'm guessing the top and jacket are your 30 for 30 items. I know you live in TX, but picking shorts as an item just doesn't seem quite as versatile.

    Have a great weekend!

    xoxo, Ashley

  9. Lookin' good, Kendi! You rock the polka dots, as always. Ha. Polka dots. Rocked. hehe.

    Mk, seriousness now– I'm gathering up all my items & post tomorrow!! Very excited!

  10. Haha, well I hope you had fun on your date night! I adore that polka-dotted shirt tucked into your shorts. Wonderful jacket as well!
    Can't wait to see your 30 for 30 challenge commence!!

  11. New to your blog and LOVE it! The 30 for 30 idea is brilliant! I really like the idea of dressing great without breaking the bank or closet stuffing it full of things you will never wear. I also love your about me. I'm from and live in a small town. Everyone wants me to have kids but right now I'm content blogging, crafting, and enjoying life. I'm so happy I found you 🙂



  12. What an amazing blog! I just stumbled upon your blog and I wish I made the deadline for the 30 for 30! But, instead, I'll shoot to complete one for myself in January – my laziest month.

    That is such a gorgeous polka dot blouse! I love how you toned it down with a lot of neutrals.

  13. you are remixing the HAIL out of that cute polka dot blouse. gives me some good ideas for my blue version.

    ps: looking forward to the 30/30 challenge!

  14. i LOVE the made up date night story. my husband and i had a boring (but content!) date night tonight as well, so it's nice to know even fashionable people have the same ol'kind of date nights as well.

    but i must say, the made up story was pretty glorious. i look forward to reading more hilarious hypotheticals in the future. great outfit! love the shirt!

  15. I'd love to try Surprise Date Night! That's so much more fun than just using a gift card 🙂

    And I'm guessing the shorts and jacket for the remix?

  16. Way to be so casual about being such a cute dresser! I knew I should've bought that shirt at Target when I had the chance. Love the oxfords, fo real.

  17. I just came across your blog & I love it! The 30 for 30 remix is such a good & fun idea. I'm going to give it a shot! : )
