I originally had a pleather skirt on with this outfit but good sense and cold weather made me change my mind. When I had the skirt on, I asked the question “is this too much pleather?” to my husband. This is a question one should never have to ask because there is only one answer: if you have to ask, then yes. Pleather has good intentions but maybe not all over my body.
Excuse the slight wrinkles in the jacket. Sometimes I get angry and take it out on my clothes and wad them up on the floor and forget about them until I realize I’m a disgusting human being and I hang up said clothes. In person, this jacket seems wrinkle free. In camera close up, this jacket looks like its been forgotten about on the bottom of a closet for a month and then hung up for 5 days. This is real life people.

Fabulous boots and trench!
DYING over your trench! I'm still bundled up in lots of layers and warm coats, so I'm jealous that you can wear this spring-like coat right now.
Wrinkles! Gah! So annoying!
Super cute though!

love the mixed trench. i love the look.
Love the necklace with stripes!!
Eh…everyone's clothes have wrinkles. Anyone who claims otherwise is lying to you…just like those women who have rock-hard abs and say they've never worked out a day in their life. Pssshh…no one buys that.
There is no question I own too many striped shirts (navy on white, pale blue on white, beige on white, black on white, black on beige, orange on beige, neon yellow on beige, grey on white with a dolman sleeve), and yet you've just absolutely convinced me that my life will not be complete without a red and white one, too.
Haha don't you hate that? Something looks SO GOOD, and then you take a picture of it. But anyways, I love the outfit.
Um, THANK YOU for the title of this post. I guffawed when I read it. Happy weekend…
haha,you are so funny! love your writing, not only the outfits!
nice trench! and you know what? the wrinkles in the picture don't bother me – thanks for being real. like you said: this is real life. Still laughing of asking the husband if it's too much pleather!
love from california,
Oh yeah. I totally have rock hard abs. I swear I never work out too…it's so weird. 😉
I love the jacket and this casual outfit. You look so cute!
Trench coats are magnets for wrinkles! Love the bright booties!
love the sleeves!!
Lovely outfit 🙂
haha "fake plastic sleeves"
so chic, regardless
love the trench!!!! very rebecca minkoff-ish…thanks for the link to an affordable one!! 🙂
I'm dying over your necklace! I've been wanting a heavy chain but can't seem to find one that I REALLY like and yours is the perfect mix. Love it. Need it.
I love that jacket so much! Beautiful outfit
Love that trench!!! I wouldn't have even noticed the wrinkles!!
so i guess this answers the age old question of, 'can you iron pleather?'
Love the title of this post 😉
love it paired with the stripes.
oooh cute jacket! :))
i have something similar from mackage.
love your boots, cute outfit.
This is so darn cute! LOVE the trench and love it paired with the stripes! I kind of died over "is this too much pleather?" and I think your logic is very true!
Love love love your entire look!
Oh pleather! My first experience with it was in middle school but at that point it looked more like a shiny trash bag. This jacket looks much better! ~Jessica
I really love the fake leather sleeves, they're really cute in any combination!

love the coat! and i love how you have mastered that top bun!
This title makes me happy. Saw Radiohead last year live, AMAZING!
Love this jacket! I have been in the market for a trenchcoat with leather sleeves!
Pleather can be tricky. Your jacket does not look like it has been forgotten at the bottom of the closet though. I am always awe struck by your ability to style a top bun. Love it!
I love the striped shirt you're wearing. The color is so pretty! I've never worn pleather but I'm always intrigued by it. It looks great on you!
You make everything look SO good! I could never pull off that jacket and you just rock it. Have a happy weekend!
love that coat!
i just recently posted about my jacket with faux leather details that i'm currently in LOVE with! read about it on my blog here:

I love this outfit! So pretty. The shoes are a great pop of color and I love the coat.
wanted that trench but it sold out before I pulled the trigger =(
I love the spin on the classic trench coat and love the pop of color on your ankle booties. www.learning2exhale.com
Love love love that jacket!
I thought it was one of those mixed media trenches…this beige color with black sleeves is a killer? not too much at all!
Love this outfit! And I love that color lipstick on you!
I need those boots. Cute look!
I'm assuming the title is a nod to "Fake Plastic Trees." That makes me giggle 🙂 I'm not a Radiohead fan but I like that song because it's in Clueless and Clueless is the best movie ever. Anywho, I love the trench, wrinkles and all, and I'm glad you went with jeans instead of a pleather skirt. Great choice!

Lovely looking trench 🙂 I really like the red touches with the striped tee and boots! 🙂
I just tried on a camo green jacket with faux leather sleeves today at Marshalls. It was cute but it was cropped so I decided against it but now I wish I'd bought it. LOL. You always look good!
I like the Radiohead reference, btw 🙂

Ha, I love how shamelessly honest you are! Thanks for forging the way for all of us fashionistas who just don't have time to iron! – J
your jacket is pretty great but we're really drooling over those booties!!

I am LOVING that jacket!!!
My same thought. Best movie ever!
Love, love, love those orange boots! As an OSU grad… They make me so happy!
I love how you look so put together 🙂 I also wanted to mention that I love your working closet posts! I am definitely going to use it to organize and make the best of my wardrobe 🙂
I always hang my clothes on the back of my bathroom door while I take a hot steamy shower. The steam gets the wrinkles out easily, no iron involved!
I am new to your blog and I'm so glad I found it! I invite you to check mine out! I hope you have a great weekend! =)
I love the trench and shirt.
I always love your outfits. you never fails.
You look amazing and that is a great coat. Love your ankle boots too!
Great look! I adore the trench.

Nice outfit! I like colors.
Fun Outfit! I agree about the wrinkles, I never notice something is wrinkled until I photograph it and the wrinkles instantly become super obvious!
Happy Saturday! intherainblog.com
Great title 🙂
The color of the booties is amazing. It such a stunning color and looks fab on you.
I always love your posts, but the Radiohead reference REALLY caught my attention! Haha I love it. Glad to know there are fashion bloggers out there who I can love for more than just what they wear, and their impeccable senses of humor!
I have those same exact booties! I love them! (same colour too)
love the top. stripes are my favorite.
Ha, ha, it's always so fun reading your posts :)! The jacket is amazing!
Great looking outfit. Love the shoes.
Killer jacket! Nice blend of classic and edgy.

Hi Kendi! I was wondering which style your gap skinnies are…are they the always skinny or the legging jean? Thanks!!
Gorgeous as always, Kendi! Hope you're having an awesome weekend! 🙂

I love, love the cute sleeves on this jacket! Don't mind a little fake leather 🙂
I love the bag! I also love the color of the booties…go girl!
Don't apologize for your wrinkles! I didn't even notice them until you pointed them out, and then I scrolled back up to look and thought way more about them than I would have otherwise.
I'm only pointing this out because I almost apologized for wrinkles in a blog post the other day, and then told myself that that would only make more people notice them. No one mentioned mine, so I'm just going to pretend they went undetected. I stand by this strategy.
The jeans were a good call with that trench, regardless of the weather :). And I love the bright booties.
really like your bun! look soo cute!
love your shoes! they are soo fun!!

Very European! I'm loving the jacket… very flattering!
I am on a pleather buying binge right now (if that is even a thing), so seeing this jacket is not (let me repeat, NOT) helping. Really cute outfit though! Loving the bright booties.
Love the boots!
Awesome jacket – even with wrinkles 🙂
I love the outfit but I love the Radiohead reference even more!
Love that jacket! Do you know of a DIY for one anywhere? Got a sewing machine for Christmas and this would be an awesome project to try out.
Love what you did there with Radiohead.
I love this outfit! It looks so comfy and stylish! The shoes are just great!!
Love Khaki…check out my take from http://www.ashinbows.com/feminine-meets-army/
LOVE the coat! And the boots! I have the same ones in tan.
Obsessed with that jacket!!!
love the hair bun! and the mix of colors is simply perfect:)
feel free to stop by our illustration blog,
Hi Kendi! I always love your outfits and posts! Can you tell me what shade of lipstick you are wearing here? I've been searching everywhere for this shade of coral… I'd really appreciate it… Thanks!
