When I saw this skirt my immediate reaction was “I’m going to remix the h out of you, skirt.” And when I have that strong of a reaction, I know that what to do. So I bought this skirt with my Christmas money on super sale (hello, 50% off!) and I love it. I’m having to tell myself not to go back to Loft, I just can’t help myself when I see the words 50% off. It’s like winning the lottery, but better. OK not better. But my chances of saving money are much higher than winning money. Of course, my chances of spending money either way are very high. This is why I should never play the lottery. Shopping is risky enough. 
I talked my husband into taking me out to lunch and then talked him into snapping some photos. And then I talked him into marrying me. Oh wait, I already did that. No wonder he was confused when I got down on one knee and proposed. 
If you can’t tell, this week I am silly. I’m still running on the Christmas-spirit fumes. Don’t worry they’ll go away in a few days and then I’ll be back to my dry, humorless self. Till then, it’s silly time.

  1. Oooh I love that skirt! I saw it last time I was at the Loft, but they didn't have my size. In fact, the entire store was out of my size. argh πŸ™ Can't wait to see how you remix it!

  2. Lol at "skirt I'm going to remix the h out of you," I'm cracking up, it is pretty awesome though, as sales after Christmas have been!

    Peace,
    Monique

  3. Love this, Kendi!
    I own everything you are wearing in this outfit, other than the skirt. And I have been eyeing the skirt online for a few weeks now. Are we the same person? Well, I guess you are much cuter and remix much better than me. But we have lots of the same stuff!

  4. Ah, love the skirt! It's so darn hard to pass up the 50% off sale…on already reduced prices too…impossible.

  5. Loved your skirt so much I just got myself one as well πŸ™‚ And now I want to go and browse more… resisting, though.

    I really like how you paired a casual top with a fancy skirt!

  6. Kendi – I can't do anything but LOVE a denim shirt with nearly anything- and a lacey, girly skirt!!!! I am swooning. Beautiful! I, too, bought the skirt now that I see how you styled it. xoxo

  7. I. LOVE. that. skirt!! I've been looking for one just like that! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Can't wait to see you remix it! and of course… You rock it like always.

  8. Dry? Maybe. Humorless? Never. That is one fine addition to your well-organized closet and has actually inspired me to wear the black lace skirt I have in my closet which I've never worn because I didn't know what to pair it with. Denim shirt. Never would have thunk it. Gracias, Kendi.

  9. so since your new skirt has met your blog, can it now come meet me? and my closet? my waist?
    thanks.
    ps. i'll take the boots too πŸ™‚

  10. Fabulous skirt! I would not have thought to wear brown boots with that outfit, but I LOVE the way it all comes together! Wish I could have that outfit in my closet!

  11. My sibs and I also did some serious damage with the after Christmas sales…and scored some pretty good deals at Loft.

    I'm pretty sure after Christmas sales are the best and worst things ever….but as long as you have Christmas money, you're good to go!!!!

  12. Wonderful post! Funny story: a few weeks ago at work, our receptionist didn't come back after her lunch break. Her and her lunch date decided to go get married! πŸ˜€

  13. Love the skirt, I can't wait to see how many different ways you remix it!

    P.S. You are anything but, dry/humorless. You always make me laugh!

  14. oh i just love the skirt! lace is one of the best things about any article of clothing. and i think i like silly you haha!

  15. You made a great purchase…50% off is always good and you can do so much with the skirt! Great choice!
    You would look great in the necklace I am giving away in a contest on my blog…come on over and enter!!!

  16. Aaaand I need to find a Chambray shirt. Pronto. Wasn't the highlight of your outfit I know, but I can't get over how versatile you've made it!

  17. beautiful. I love that necklace. I feel like every time Suze wears hers I tell her how pretty it is! ha.

    I love this skirt with that shirt. It's such an awesome juxtaposition.

    And also… i did not know there were such sales going on at LOFT… oh dear.

  18. Agh! I had that skirt in my hands today and decided to restrain myself (I already had a sweater and a silk top in my hands too). Oh, seeing how you mixed it….makes me want to drive to the mall right now. I guess there is always tomorrow πŸ™‚

  19. I've worked at Loft for the last year, and I've followed your blog for about half that time. I love this skirt so much more than the dress we got in the same material and at one point thought "I wonder if Kendi has this skirt, she could probably do a lot with it". Needless to say, glad you got the skirt & that you got a great deal on it!

  20. your hair looks terrific like that! i wish i could get mine to achieve that kind of volume–it's gorgeous!

    and your top reminds me that i have to break out my denim button-up, too. inspiration all around, as usual. xo

  21. Love the skirt!!! I went to the loft this weekend to use a gift card from my mom & racked up on the 50% sale + a $20 off coupon!

  22. I have a thrifted skirt similar to yours that I just can't figure out how to style! I'm going to be using some of your outfits with this skirt as inspiration…

  23. So cute Kendi! I have decided I need a lace skirt. I saw one recently at a BR outlet and dang it I should have gotten it. Can you come to NC and shop with me? Ha ha!

  24. oh man then i guess i shouldnt tell you about the TOTALLY AWESOME sale at gap going on right now. aaaaaah! 80% a cute oatmeal colored trench. beyond precious.

    girl, no one rocks the middle part like you. no one! so sososo gorgeous as always πŸ™‚

  25. Love the skirt! I bought the dress version at Loft last week for NYE. I LOVE it! You look great and i love the brown boots with it. So fun! Oh, and has anyone ever told you that you look just like Katherine McPhee from American Idol. Seriously, ya'll could be twins. Love the blog!

  26. Thank you, friends/lovers!

    You know, I didn't write this in my post but this outfit came out more country than I wanted it to. It only proves my point that this skirt is going to be super versatile.

    Also, I was this close to naming this post Country Strong. This close.

  27. Leya — it's like a cut-out lace overlay on top of a creme colored skirt. It's two layers, but it falls really nicely. But definitely not sheer!

  28. I love it!! So gorgeous…maybe I'll just stop by Loft and see what I can hit the jackpot on!!

  29. so glad to see this–i just bought both of the loft skirts you wore and i'm wasn't sure how else to wear them. thanks!

  30. you are funny. I sneak in the camera to my husband's hands right after the kids are strapped in the car but before he has locked the front door. πŸ™‚
    Love the new skirt.

  31. some times ago i looked up your posting about your photo from high school.
    all i want to ask is: what did you do to loss weight?

    ps: when i saw your postings, i always had something in my mind like "i like your body. i want to be like that. lol".

  32. I love how you styled this chambray shirt. I have been lusting after a chambray top but have yet to find one.

  33. When you see a piece that you immediately can picture a dozen outfits, then it's almost required that you buy it, isn't it? Especially if it's on sale. I just bought a cardigan at J Crew for $20, including shipping.

  34. I love your blog! I also got this skirt and a similar shirt to wear together! Too funny…Good taste πŸ˜‰

  35. what an awesome skirt! I adore this entire outfit. I would never have thought of this combination but it's great!

  36. I just bought a chambray shirt and I've been trying to figure out some different ways to wear it. Love this combo! Thanks for the humor and inspiration as always!

  37. I love that skirt. I bought the black lace dress from Loft and love it. I feel like it can be worn so many different ways. I love how you styled the skirt and outfit.

  38. juts found your lovely blog! what a great outfit, so laid back and stylish. love the lace skirt

  39. Ahh I just spent more than intended when I walked into that 50% off Loft sale yesterday! But I got 3 cute shirts for a great deal! (though if they can survive on 50% margins makes you wonder!) Love that skirt though :).

  40. I love that skirt!

    Sometime, will you talk about how you do your hair? Specifically, I love the half-up style you're sporting today and I try and try to get my hair to do this… But. It. Won't.

  41. I hope your spirits continue to be so silly!!

    fantastic look! i am always so surprised with what i can find at loft

  42. Just came across your blog and I think it's amazing! I hope I can soon begin to take your fabulous sense of style and apply it to my utterly lack of style! πŸ™‚

  43. Kendi, I just found your blog and spent the past day reading through your previous posts ::blushes guiltily:: You are just adorable, and i love your style. So happy to have found your posts, they make me smile. Happy New Year!

  44. hey kendi, im the one who asked you about the weight πŸ™‚

    ps: sorry, i absolutely forgot to type down my name in the first comment.

  45. Lusia! I totally don't mind at all. Would you mind emailing me? Kendieveryday@gmail.com is my email. I never mind sharing my story but it's a bit long for the comment section! Email me anytime and I'll be happy to share πŸ™‚

    @Allison — Yes! I will share a post about my hair. This do is super easy. If you have hair and some bobby pins, you can do it. I'll put that on my to post list.

    XO Kendi

  46. i got this on super sale too! I was so excited, I love this one. I dressed it up for new years, but I love how you paired it with a denim top. Thanks for the great ideas, as always! Totally love your style. Happy new year, and here's to being fearless!!
