Weekend Update


{Shop: Jeans, Boots}

I hereby interrupt your weekend with a quick post. I wanted to keep up with the ol’ 30 for 30 and since I showered and got dressed today (this is an accomplishment for a Saturday) I thought it should be documented.

I only wore this for the first half of the day, as it went from 35 degrees to 70 within a few hours today. It was a beautiful spring day in December. I mean people were swimming outside at the gym today. (OUTSIDE!!) I’m slightly tempted to stick my head in the freezer and just pretend that it’s snowing.

And with that, I’m off to talk my husband into watching as many chick flicks are he can stomach. Wish me luck.

Happy weekend, friends.

And PS — Morgan, you won the Linkel giveaway! Come on down and claim your prize by emailing me ASAP!

  3. I really love this casual look! Good luck w/the chick flicks πŸ™‚ I can usually talk my husband into romantic comedies, but he draws the line at Christmas or Hallmark movies, hehe.
    And I have been searching high and low for a good sized cross body bag to take to Europe. I never thought of Urban Outfitters!

    It was a perfect interruption so no worries! πŸ™‚ I love this outfit, specially with that lovely shoulder bag (is that the proper name for it?) …anyways lovely!…Texas is so unpredictable sometimes, though we tend to predict it's wonderful wanna-be winter weather will soon fade and unexpectedly we have a hot day!…Oh Texas! lol (i'm from Houston; so no winter outfits for me at all.

    I love your blog. Your style is awesome. I really enjoy reading your posts every day. This one is adorable, and recently I have enjoyed "Autumn Road", "Jump In", "Thankful" (which blew my mind), "You, Me, and Everyone We Know", and "Ralph Lauren would really like my outfit".

    Seriously, it's too good not to say something.

    I'm going to have to deliberately skip Saturday because I couldn't get up and shower and get dressed and act like a human. I am always impressed when other people manage it.

    I love this outfit, it's just fabulous and looks perfect for wandering around town or something.

  33. Oh Texas…you so crazy. This is just the perfect weekend outfit. Every time I try to wear a hat like that I look like a douchenozzle, but you truly pulled it off. Love that bag too.

    If it's any consolation, I live in the southern hemisphere, where it's supposed to be the end of spring, almost summer, and this has been a wonderful weekend of autumn so far in my city.

    the weather's been crazy all around the world, as far as I can tell.

  36. as per usual, i think your casual looks are my faves. if i saw people swimming in the outdoor pool, i would probably write it off as a crazy pregnancy dream. ludicrous!

  37. Isn't this Texas weather crazy?! It sent me to a wardrobe tizzy yesterday!

    I love the casual look! Enjoy your chick flicks

  41. I love your hat, but I'm also envious that you don't have to wear it because it's 70 degrees where you are!! It's FREEZING in New York, so hats have become a necessity.

    Have fun with your husband! Hope you can talk him into the movies… my fiance won't watch chick flicks with me. I refuse to watch scary movies with him because I can't sleep for weeks, so he tries to use that line on me when I suggest a girly movie. "But Ang, you know those scare me. I won't sleep for weeks!"

    Don't tell your man about that trick….you've been warned! πŸ™‚

  45. I love your blog! I have a silly question…how do you get your jeans/pants so nicely tucked into your boots? My tucks never look as good as yours, so I wonder if you have any tips =) Thanks so much for sharing all of your looks!

    Clasically Fabulous — My jeans are a pretty skinny cut, so I don't have any trouble slipping on my boots at all. I've tried before with boot cut and that never works for me, it's also too much fabric to tuck in. I've also tried with just straight cut jeans and not skinny, and that works better but not quite as well as skinny.

    With that said, skinny jeans are the best cut to tuck in but if you have a straight cut, you can roll them just a bit and tuck in any extra fabric, making them tighter then slip your boots on! That should work…

    Cute! Looks kinda like my standard weekend outfit — except I usually hide my hair in a messy bun in lieu of having to do it.

    You ought to wear hats more often — so cute!

    Kendi, you look super cute. I love your bag! I have been looking for a similar satchel that I could just throw everything into, including my 15" laptop. Would your satchel fit a laptop? If so, when did you get it from UO… think they'd still have it in stock?! I can't believe how hard it's been to find a cute cognac satchel big enough to fit a laptop… you wouldn't think it would be that hard right? Well you'd be wrong!

    Thanks for sharing your outfit, love the effortless casual style!

    I've really enjoyed seeing how you've remixed your 30 items. I've thought about trying it myself.
    How do you pick your 30 items? Do you choose a color scheme? Do you start with one favorite item and go from there? Do tell! Please!

    i love that bag…the giant nerd in me wants to somehow attach straps and make it into a backpack! nerd alert!

  58. kskeen27 says:

    Kate! Yes — the bag fits my laptop 13" very well, so I'm sure it could accommadate two more inches. However, the bag was a Christmas gift two years ago, so I'm positive it's not in stock any longer.

    Have you looked into Cambridge Satchel Company? They are kind of pricey, but super cute and I believe that they fit laptops of all size. Google it and it should come up!

    Mareyeb — Generally I start with my favorite things and then go from there. I usually start with about 40 items then start parring down to get my 30 (shoes are the hardest to elminate, I usually pick out way more than I need.) Although I try to coordinate color most of the time, I like to have a range of colors so that I don't get bored throughout the challenge.

    And Kitty — I agree! A backpack of that satchel would be magic!

    Kendi, I absolutely love this look! I’ve been trying to get a hold of some nice leather Steve Madden boots for a long time. After seeing your post, I actually just ordered a pair of the exact boots you’re wearing. They look extremely comfortable, yet very classy. They come in a few weeks unfortunately, but I think it will be completely worth it. Thank you so much for the idea! Your blog is now one of my favorite go-to blogs to check out daily for new clothing ideas! πŸ™‚
