But when you go out for a date night, it’s just not handy to bring a camera. (Although I am not above that. There is little that I am above.) So again with the trusty iPhone for outfit shots. I hate to waste a good outfit. But seriously — why am I just now figuring this out? Did you guys know that you can use the internet, send text messages and play games on your iPhone as well? I know, I’m still in awe.  Side story: (as if my whole blog isn’t one huge side story) this weekend as we were setting up for the wedding, a lady desperately asked “does anyone have any tools in their car??” I of course heard “jewels” and perked right up. Turns out, jewels are of no worth when a wrench is needed.

  2. I love these colors so much I can’t take my eyes off of you! that’s not creepy, right? I love that you chose more neutral accessories, but you already know that was genius. Keep us posted on more new things you learn about the world wide web!

  3. Love all the colors. I seriously love the whole red + purple or red + pink thing going on right now. It’s so pretty in such an unexpected way!

  8. the shots look awesome!  no harm in a little phoneography!  its an art-form you know.

  10. Fabulous. I wish I could pull off an outfit as bold as this. I have a feeling I’d look like a clown. You, however, look fresh and fantastic!

  16. Kendi,

    All these colors fit your personality – bright, happy and hard to ignore,

    On a side note, having English as a second language you cannot imagine the things I hear. But it is always a great for laughs later.

  23. I wore exactly the same color combo to a cocktail party … I don’t think people got it. But you get it and that matters to me!!! Connection? Yes? Me creepy? Perhaps.

  24. Kendi, I love this look. All of the beautiful and bright jewel toned colors go so great together!  Oh, and by the way, I would have thought the lady had said “jewels” too! Don’t ask me for help using a wrench! Haha! 😉 

  25. haha you wait until someone comes up with the brilliant idea of a wrench that can be transformed into a necklace! it shall happen… or maybe cars should be unbreakable. that´d be nicer 🙂
    cute pants!! still on the colored denim train! 🙂 
    yay for the iphone saving your day! 
    XO jannine
