Let it be known that it is the 5th of December and my legs are bare. Also note that there is little regret on this face. It’s a bit chilly and while I’d love to pull out my sweaters, I’m not that upset that it’s still warm here. I get cranky if I wear tights for too many months, so the longer we can hold out in December the better. Although it looks like I’ve lost all color on my legs from the summertime. So just kidding — I’m wearing white tights. Fooled you all. 

I feel like I need to make a PSA about my skirt. Attention friends: I found this skirt for $12 at my local Target. (For those in north Dallas, the one off of Stacy Rd.) It might just be a markdown at that store and not to make this situation even more dire but it’s also available in navy. Which meant that I spent longer trying to figure out which color of skirt I should get compared to figuring out what I will cook for dinner this week. Some decisions are just easier than others, ok?

  1. Ok my Target for sure does not have that skirt! I was just there but maybe I need to go back and look harder!

    1. It was in the back next to the maternity clothes. I mean RIGHT NEXT to maternity items, on the same rack. I would have walked right passed it but little does Target know that I am aware of these tricky moves and I even scour the maternity section because I am that lame. 😉 

  2. I am loving that bird blouse. I’ve been dying to find one. You always inspire me to put together outfits, from things I never thought to put together! So thank you! I absolutely adore your blog Kendi! 

    Love Amie x

  3. I love this outfit! The colors seem to just go perfectly together and the print on the blouse is amazing. Definitely made the right decision by buying this skirt.

  4. Target needs to stop being so amazing. I might just invest my life savings in Target stocks or whatever people do with investments…. awkward moment when I probably don’t even have enough in my life savings to invest in a single store…

  5. I got that one in navy. I kinda wish I had gotten it in that color too! And yes I am also loving the Texas “Winter” we are having. Just wish I could wear my warm sweaters though!

  6. Oooo, good choice. This color is too unique to pass up. I have no complaints either (on the weather). Here in San Antonio, I’m doing my 30×30 and walking with ease through the high degrees…

    1. I think fall is the best time for a 30×30. You can layer till your heart’s desire but it’s not so cold that it feels like a chore to get dressed. Best of luck on the remix 🙂

  7. Love that blouse, Kendi! Such a fun print. Also, I think that I don’t miss Texas “winters”…until I’m standing in 50-degree wind, desperately trying to hold onto my umbrella here I’m the Bay Area. S enjoy those bare legs while you can.

  8. I’ve been lusting after these heels!!! But it looks like the ones available on UO’s site are more orange than red… have they stopped selling the really red ones, do you know?

    1. I know that mine are more poppy or orange red than the really red ones. They just don’t photograph as vividly any more because they are a few years old. I don’t think they have the really red ones any more, sadly. 🙁 

      1. It’s such a bummer! Everyone says the “red/orange” pair are really more pumpkin. Not quite what I’m looking for! Maybe I’ll just stick with the mustard… lots of possibilities there, too =)

          1.  Okaaaaay. If you’re going to twist my arm. They’re $10 off right now, too!!

  9. Looked this skirt up on Target’s website and it’s almost double the price you paid for yours! I will surely scour the Philly stores to see if it’s available there. 🙂

  10. Feel so special – first time I’ve seen you wear something I have in my own closet. Love that skirt from Target. I also opten for the pumpkin color. (My co-worker told me I looked like pumpkin pie when I wore it – ha!)

  11. I love how colorful your outfits are! Your outfits inspire me so much because when I look at your posts I think “Hey! I have some pieces kind of like that! I could try similar!” or “Oh my gosh, I never thought of putting those colors together! It looks so cute!!” Basically, I love your style and I love how much COLOR there is!! I really love color… like a lot.

  12. So cute, Kendi! I always love seeing those Urban Outfitters shoes on your blog – it’s a great reminder to all of us that we should remix things we already own before buying more, More, MORE! You’re the coolest.

  13. Is it weird that I am amused by the name of that boutiqueand that I believe it will bring me as much satisfaction as a PB&J sandwich?

  14. Great Look and I love that you got the skirt for $12 what an amazing deal.

  16. I can’t even imagine being bare legged right now. It’s freezing here, and at times even snowing (at the moment it still melts when hitting the ground, but maybe tomorrow I’ll wake up to a white world!)

  17. I love everything about this!  The adorable birds, the little screw detail on the skirt…You totally should have gotten the skirt in BOTH colors.

  18. I bought that same Target skirt about 3 months ago – it’s been out for awhile (but not on sale – the small sizes go fast where I’m at, so I grab when I can!). They also had the similar A-line style in a tan plaid that reminded me of Indiana Jones – so I bought both! Love the A-line and Target’s Merona! The Merona cardigans are just as great, too. Identical to J.Crew, but 50 bucks cheaper.

  37. I just love your rust skirt!  It’s so pretty and ladylike! I tried the same one on at Target but it just fit all wrong…the minuses of being petite.

  46. Fun colors!  That happens to me at target every time!  Make sure to get them both if you love them enough!  They may be gone when you go back to get them(this happened to me last month still annoyed with myself).  You can always return them if you change your mind!

  55. Funny thing about the bird blouse – Target was selling a belted tunic blouse in the Pure Energy (big gals) section made of the same fabric, same print, earlier this fall. I nabbed it and was surprised to see this similar one pop up today on your blog!

  58. Love this Kendi! I ended up getting both the blue and orange skirts today 🙂 My store was only marked down to $17 but with only one of each in my size, I snatched them up!Consider yourself lucky to be sporting bare legs…I live in South Dakota and am envious! The snow is flying here.

  60. I saw that skirt a few weeks ago and purchased both colors, because I’m indecisive like that. Unfortunately they didn’t fit right so I had to take them back. :/ It looks gorgeous on you, though. Pretty much everything does.

  62. you are so lucky! snowstorm after snowstorm keeps me from wearing anything but tights … but under pants. The only way to keep warm in this dreary weather. I hope that you can still enjoy this warm weather for a bit. You look lovely in your red and orange combo!! Still loving your heels
