You know why I love the holidays? Because you can dress like you are twelve years old and blame it on the holiday spirits. (Technically spirits have a double meaning here — this could be warm feelings or liquor. Take it as you will.) B and I are on a Christmas marathon this week and will be celebrating not one but 4 Christmases. I’d like to say that I have outfits for all of them, but really I only have this one. The rest of the week will be celebrated as it should be: with lots of food and in sweatpants. I’m hoping the same for you. 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, friends. I hope it’s a good one.

  1. Merry Christmas, Kendi! I love love the little collar necklace. I ordered that jacket online last year and it did not work on me so I returned it. Since then I've seen it on both you and Naomi and it's gorgeous on you! 

  2. Happy Holidays, Kendi! Love all the colors, and your dress! It's kind of like a fancy alternative to sweatpants, no? 🙂

  4. Happy Christmas! I love the combo of coral and pink. And no, you don't always look like you're in 3rd/4th grade or that you are 12 years old, so knock it off! You're a beautiful WOMAN and you should start thinking of yourself that way too!

  12. Hi Kendi,

    Great use of color! I usually try to pair complimentary colors but rarely think to use analogous color scheme. Quite wonderful. Thank you for inspiring!

  15. First of all, I am absolutely in love with your haircolor. It's so perfect for your skintone and your personality too! Secondly, I'm almost certain that your sweatpants ensemble is not as drab as you describe it. It probably is bedazzled.
