Well, friends. We made it back from Vegas. It was a good trip, we bought cute things for the shop, I got to wear a jumpsuit, and I only lost $20 to the Sex and the City slot machine this time around. That’s like a lunch out, so I’m going say that technically I am a winner in Vegas terms. 

I’m not going to lie, it’s been hard to get back into the routine of things back home. Not because I miss the buffets and the slot machines (oh but I do), but just because I’m tired and haven’t been able to catch up on everything yet. Isn’t that the worst — coming back to your desk after you’ve been gone? Where is a good snow day when you need one, right? Forget snow day, where is a good vacation when you need one?

In other news, have you seen this? And now I want to be Jennifer Lawrence.

  1. I am absolutely obsessed with those leggings. I like your colorful looks but you look so chic when you wear black!! 

  2. Loving the pants! Oh, and I've watched that Jennifer Lawrence video at least three times just because it makes me laugh so hard!

  3. Love the printed pant!
    I've been pretending Jennifer Lawrence is my other little sister/bff for a minute now.  Love her.
    And yes, returning to your regular work after attending a conference (or tradeshow, I guess, in your case) FOR WORK, is the worst.

  4. Bravo to you for being a business owner. I worked at a mom and pop shop for years, and it's seriously hard work. There's so much about the business that you can't just hand over to someone else, and it's success is your daily responsibility. You're a braver gal than I am, Kendi! 

    Love this outfit, as I love them all! The black top and heels makes the tribal pants a little more conservative. Cute!

  5. OMG, my friends and I talked all day long about this interview :)) Didn't know Jennifer could be that funny! She was hilarious! And gorgeous!

    Don't worry, you don't look so bad yourself :))!

    Kisses and enjoying your posts, as always!



  6. I really like this look!  I'm trying to figure out how to get maximum wear out of my new printed pants, and I like the idea of keeping the rest of the outfit solid and simple.  That necklace is super pretty.

  7. Oh my god, that Jennifer Lawrence video is perfect and I love her even more like that (being totally herself) than I did as Katniss. Speaking of love, your pants are awesome.

  8. Love the shoes and your clutch! I am going to Vegas in a little over a week… I will hopefully not lose more than $20 to the slot machines. My bf might though 🙂

  9. Did you see the interview with George Steph where Jack Nicholson interrupted? Too funny!

  10. Oh my goodness I love Jennifer Lawrence! And your pants too! They are lovely (:

  11. Such a perfect chic hippy look! I suppose that's a contradiction in terms (did I make that up? it sounds cool so I don't care), but as I wasn't born in the 70's I can't personally attest one way or the other.

  12. That slot machine will be my financial demise if I ever go back to Vegas. Damn the Big Win and it's tempting ways!!

  13. I love this look! You look chic and comfortable. And I've been eyeing that bag!! =]

  14. love love love those printed pants! and i just realized (sorry it took until now) that Bloom ships to Canada – yay and thanks for that!

  15. Great look, I love your clutch.

    As for J.Law, I could go on for days about how much I love her. She's so refreshing while still being talented. I'm convinced we could be BFF's.

  16. i feel a little weird saying this but how hot are you?! lovinggg this post…amazing outfit and equally as good photos!

  17. Hi Kendi! I've been following you for 2 months now and this is definitely my favorite outfit. Not that the others weren't good, just that this one fits beautifully in my life. I have 2 little ones and sparkly jewelry, light colors and pumps can't happen. I tried…. stains, broken necklaces, pulled earrings, scuffed heels, tripping, etc. I like that I could do this in different colors as well. Thank you for this post. (Just because I'm a mom, doesn't mean I want to wear mom jeans, caps, sneakers and t shirts-yuck!)

  18. LOVE these pants, and the clutch is the perfect complement! You look fantastic as always, but this one of my favorite outfits of yours in recent memory.

    Name's Not Ashley

  19. Those pants are to die for and you wear them well, Kendi! Glad to hear you had a blast in Vegas, we're jealous! Looking forward to your next post, as always! 

  20. Black is the best way to rock a great print like this. Good luck getting back into the routine of things!

  21. Cute pants!!! I'm not sure I could rock those but you do! Also, Jennifer Lawrence is just awesome. She's so down to earth and I love the part where she says "Sorry i took a shot"

  22. Love your blog!  Felt slightly embarrassed when I was catching up on my weekly reading, saw your post, and realized I posted a 'Back in Black' post last week as well.  I hadn't seen yours, but still felt a little like I copied! 

    Love the 'fit!

  23. I just bought these jeans and I'd sleep in them if I could. So cute and comfortable. Thanks for the tip on your Bloom shop about them running small. You're not kidding! Sized up and perfect. xo, risa
