This one time last week I found myself alone in a Gap dressing room with an armful of clothes, mysteriously all in my size. I had no choice but to try them on. You would have done the same, right? I mean sure it was sketchy that I didn’t have any clue how I ended up at a Gap 20 miles away from me, but when cute clothes are in your arms you try them on. It’s just polite. I walked away from the store with this pair of pants. (And yes, I did remember to pay.)


Amnesia shopping — that’s what I’m going with on this one.

  1. haha I remember that picture on instagram. I'm glad you got the camo pants you look great in them!

  2. haha, Amnesia shopping… I hate it when that happens! :p  I got those pants too, and also in plain green and coral. i'm not addicted to shopping at all

  3. omg why haven't I thought of that excuse before? oh wait – maybe I HAVE and I just don't "remember?" 🙂

    Love your look – the cargos with the feminine top and denim are such a classic tough and girly contrast. Gorgeous!Morgan

  4. What a great outfit! I love how you incorporated camo into the look but still keeping it sweet and classy. 

  5. Love them!! I am looking (well just need to get off my butt and actually go look) for camo pants/jeans. Did these seem to hold shape and not give in to the saggy butt look we all hate? If so, I am driving to my Gap now. Let me know, thanks!



  6. I don't know if I could rock those camo pants, I just have vivid memories of them being worn by boys in elementary school. But seems to me like you've got it down!

  9. I've always wondered if I would wear camo pants enough to justify buying them! You rock it girl! Isn't amnesia shopping to best, I mean worst?

  10. Haha this reminds me of that part in mean girls "I saw Cady Heron wearing camo pants and flip flops..so I bought camo pants and flip flops". Except it's Kendi Skeen wearing camo pants and black pumps, a much better combination 🙂 ha


  11. Oh I LOVE this combination of camo and then jean jacket!

  12. I have amnesia shopping all the time. I walk out of stores with bags in my hand thinking, how'd I get these??
    I just got thos pants too! I love the way you styled them! So cute!!

  13. That same thing happened to me at Anthropologie once.  Cutest shirt I ever bought.  Completely by accident…

  14. So I used to work at the Gap. Just quit actually, which is a story in-and-of-itself, but I folded these pants so many times! I was seriously wondering how they would look on someone because they did not look flattering folded. Happy to say they look great! On you anyway. On me they'd probably be atrocious. 🙂 


  15. Kendi, I just came across your blog a couple of weeks ago and I have been inspired to find myself again. After having had 3 children (the youngest being 16 mos) I found myself getting caught up in the kids and never having time to put into how I looked (in respect to day to day life). I have started putting the energy back into me and it feels great! I just wanted to thank you (and my husband thanks you 😉 ) Not that sweats, t-shirts are jeans are bad but almost everyday was a little much. I had forgotten that it doesn't take much to dress up a t-shirt and jeans. Thanks for your inspiration! 

  16. "Amnesia shopping" that is a great term. Ill remember to use that one when hubby asks about new purchases 😉


  17. Wow, I haven't seen camo pants in SO long. They look lovely in this outfit though! 


  18. SUPER cute how you made these camo pants look ladylike and chic with the heels, oversized sunnies, and dressy top.

  19. Would you suggest I size down in these pants since there is stretch?  Did they stretch much throughout the day?  Darling outfit, by the way.

  20. HA! Those pants are in my shopping cart.  Won't be available till the end of October (have to buy them in Tall).  I've said it once, I'll say it again, I'm a much older version of you 🙂

  21. Love this look, it's like tough chic! It's sweet on one end & just a little bad @ss. Love!

  22. Love the denim and camo together!!! Amazing. (:


  23. Oh yes.  This has happened to me before.  Just the other day I told a friend that I must have blacked out.   And when I black out, I tend to come home with way more than just one pair of pants.   🙂

  24. I just bought those same pants!  I plan to style them with a white/gray tank from Forver 21, a long tan cardigan from Gap, and brown tall boots.  I think they are going to be so versatile for the fall.

  25. If someone had come up to me earlier today and been like, "hey Jules, what do you think of camo pants with black pumps?" I probably would would have given them a wtf stink-eye.

    Luckily for me (and this fictional person, needing advice), I happened upon this blog post and now I know:  it totally works. Love it!
