I’m back! I’m alive! I survived the snowstorm unfortunately named Nemo! Actually I got the h out of New York before that snowstorm hit. Well actually as the snowstorm was hitting. I was sweating bullets as flights were being cancelled left and right at the terminal gate. My husband and I were on separate planes and as my plane took off, I thought he was already an hour in the air. Wrong. He was still sitting on the plane, on the runway where he stayed for FIVE hours before finally taking off. I will never complain of a late take off ever again, right?
Of course the snowstorm wasn’t as bad as they predicted but still this Texan girl is terrified of blizzards. Unless they are from Dairy Queen, and then I welcome them with open hands and a spoon.
So we get home and it’s sunny, then it’s rainy. Then it’s sunny! Then it’s rainy. Today it’s just Seattle, so I dressed accordingly. (Is this how the cool kids in the northwest dress? No? Okay cool.) Oh and that cord that’s hanging out of my purse? It’s my ear phones. I didn’t realize it was there until right now. One day we will be professional at this picture taking thing and everything will be tucked, ironed and in it’s place. One day.

Fabulous necklace and tote!
Yay, I'm glad you made it out of NY safe! Your poor husband, he's a trooper!
I love this outfit, & the pop of red lipstick just takes it to a whole 'nother level!
the jacket and the hat give such a good laid back, street look to this outfit! 😉
oh no, your poor hubby!

I love that jacket on you! Also, I am forever cursed with having one thing wrong in all of my photographs! I feel your pain.
Love the necklace! By chance, can you tell where it's from?
Happy to hear you got home safe! I could not even imagine being on a runway for 5 HOURS!! Your poor husband! 🙁
Poor bryan! That happened to me on the way home from Nebraska one time. Not fun. I love this outfit! Every time you wear that jacket, I die. It's perfect!
Loving the green jacket!
love you're hialrious. cute outfit.
You look absolutely adorable here! I love this casual outfit. Yes, the weather down here in Texas is pretty unpredictable at least we're not covered in 5 ft of snow!
A PERFECT Northwest oufit, but you'll need your umbrella, everyday.
Style in the City
Love this little look perfect for a grey day. And actually, I used to live in the Northwest, most people don't dress this cute. So you're way ahead of the game. Except for the earbud cord….
I'm loving the casual vibes you have going on in today's post! Northern ladies do tend to dress a lot like this…mainly because it's our only way to remain somewhat stylish without ruining our favorite pieces! Hope you are staying dry!
This lip color is amazing on you! Love this comfy and practical look! Glad you survived Nemo!
Adorable look, love the boots!
Those boots and that bag are simply amazing, of course they are from Madewell! I've wanted to have something from their shop for AGES but am still saving up … they're so expensive!
Glad you made it safely away from Nemo!
I hear ya with the delays! I once set on runway for couple of hours too – not fun… And flying alone is even less fun
I seriously laugh out loud every time I read your posts. Also, I share the same sentiments about blizzards. Ain't nobody got time for that…unless it's DQ.
Haha I am up here in Seattle and I wish I was looking as good as you! Love the jacket.
I Love this a lot especially the hat and red lipstick :).
Love this jacket so much and still regret not buying it when you first wore it here 🙁 Glad you survived the storm in NYC!!
I just love the beanie with the outfit, it just adds that little "something"!

Glad you both made it back safe. Being stuck on the plane is torture.
Where is that amazing necklace from? Love the outfit!
Love your smile 🙂
Blizzards should definitely be of the ice cream kind only. Glad you made it home safely! I'm definitely eying a military jacket, but haven't found the right one yet… The hunt continues.
I think the ear phones add more of a hipster vibe. 🙂
Glad to hear you survived the storm! You're definitely dressing for Seattle today with this awesome grunge look. Way to rock it!
i love all of this. so much.
oh my goodness, there is nothing worse than being stuck on a plane on the runway for 5 hours. glad you guys made it home safe and sound!
loving your madewell shoes and tote 🙂
The cord echos seattle's hipster movement… Will we ever get to see pics of you doing your thang in NY? I'll assume you said yes.
Ugh! I am so sorry about your plane experience. Airports, bad weather, and planes always give me anxiety.
love your lipstick color on you!
Glad you guys made it back safely! Love this look – it's so downtown/hipster chic! 🙂
I'm wearing that same jacket right now 🙂
I love this outfit Kendi! I like want to be in this outfit right now. Perfect for our not so awesome weather in the Northeast. I am glad NY didn't get it as bad as they predicted and you made it out okay/on time but in MA we got 25 inches in my town and it was crazy.
Definitely hipster Seattle-esque. And I hope it's still cool to look this way because this is the exact look that happens every Saturday and Sunday for me.
Awww that's good you dodged the snowstorm!
Hey you're in Seattle?? My city. You are dressing as one cool lady! 😉

I enjoy reading your funny little notes… You should write a book!! you crack me up… love this casual look!
I love this casual look. You look adorable in that hat!
love the coat & bag together! X http://www.dippedinyellow.blogspot.com
I absolutely love the green of your shirt, paired with the orange of your bag. And your hat is simple adorable!
Love the simplicity : )
Breakfast at Cindi’s
Kendi I love this outfit! very cute, not as bright and colorful as your usual outfits but still very cute. It looks a lot like what we girls in Kansas wear.:)
Haha you crack me up. Dairy Queen blizzard! That is terrible he was stuck on the runway so long. I can't imagine having to fly after being enclosed for so long. I hope his flight was quicker than 5 hours!
LOl. Hilarious even with the slight photo bombing of the cord -pics are still great . Loving them boots girl. Now do I wanna pull the trigger on $200 boots ? Dunno yet. Great look.
Loving your Madewell bag and boots!
love madewell leather pieces! they are usually really good quality
love the tote bag!
Nice outfit! I love the jacket and the boots! 🙂
Love it all! Especially that deep red lipstick!
Haha I know what you mean, girl. I thought about these boots for 6 months before I bit the bullet. I still don't love the $200 price but I do love the boots and I know they'll last me for years.
I live in Portland and pretty much wore this same outfit last weekend 🙂
I hope you had fun in NYC! Wish I could've gone to the event. Love the necklace here, so pretty.
love this look! and especially that bag!
Such a cute look! Loving your tote and necklace! Glad to hear y'all made it back okay! I cannot believe your husband was stranded on the runway for 5 hours! I don't know what I would do!
your necklace is gorge!!! where did you get it??
love your blog 🙂
This def looks like a "Tough Kendi" look 🙂
LOL! I love blizzards from Dairy queen also- but not so much the snowy kind. Unfortunately, I've only been experiencing the latter lately and too often. Love your outfit and your sense of humor!
Yep, it sure has been cloudy down here. Of course course you are dressed fitting and look amazing.
Love this look. And also – today I attempted to look fashionable for the first time since Nemo (we're in Boston…) and my husband looks at me and said, "What up, Kendi?!" I think he knows my not-so-secret obsession with your blog:)
madewell madewell madwell!
xo the egg out west.
Fun outfit, with a great military jacket.
I love that you can see the earphone. Makes it more personable
I need one of those jackets!
Glad to hear you're doing well
All things J
I love that necklace of yours! How was New York? I love the City.
Being from Washingyon State, I would say that you nailed it :). Very hipster and muted colors. Super cute for a dreary day.
Oh dear, as an Australian, I'd have been terrified by flying through the blizzard myself! I love this outfit and I am sure it is just what the fly kids in PNW are wearing.
I think your pics look great!
I am totally going to copy this outfit! 🙂 And I completely understand you with the crazy weather. Here in Northern Cali, it's been cold, and then rainy and now its 70! Crazy!
Totally Seattle! Except your hair would be frizzier…lol. But yup, that's how the cool kids look up here!
This outfit is so perfect to me right now. I've been under-the-weather, so nothing looks better than a cozy, casual outfit. Also, I love that the cord is hanging out of your bag. There's something more personal about outfit posts when it's not so perfect. 🙂
gorgeous necklace. is it a recent h&m find? cause i totally want it. xD
on a totally random note, how did you get your disqus to look like this? did you code it yourself or is there some features on the disqus website i missed? cause i would love something like this for my blog.

I love the bag.
I actually just did a CIY oxblood tote that has a similar shape.
Check it out if you want to learn how to make a tote like this.
I love that hat! Perfect outfit! And the red lipstick look so awesome!
Love this look, so simple!!
Your lipstick color is AMAZING. I've been searching for a good red and have similar coloring to yours. Do you mind sharing the brand/shade?
Lol at the Seattle comment. You do look how people in Seattle seem too!
that bag is gorgeous!!
I love this casual chic look! The coat is awesome and adds such a cool vibe.
You look great on your grey day!

What the what? I was wearing almost this exact same outfit today and I didn't see the blog post until now. Great minds and all that…
I love the simplicity of this outfit!

Are you starting a store in Seattle? Portland is a great option too since I live there and I would definitely shop at Bloom! 😀
Ok, dying laughing from the Dairy Queen blizzard comment! If I ever need to see some great styling or have a little bit of laughter, I know this is the place to be. Your outfit is pretty great, too! xo
I wish the worst part of my photos was an ipod cord sticking out! You look gorg as usual!
I am so glad that you got home safely because if you hadn't then I would have to go more days without reading your blog. Then I would become depressed because I seriously laugh at every one of your posts.
So glad you made it home ok! You seriously lucked out. Friday was absolutely insane (ice cold, 50mph winds, and snow!! It kept piling up!). I'm happy to be home where at least the temp is higher than 30 degrees 🙂 Btw I could have used that hat in New York..
Lovely casual outfit. Glad you made it and avoided the storm!
Love the beanie! ♥
I wore almost the exact same outfit yesterday minus the hat. Although, in hindsight it would have made more sense for me to wear the hat over here on the East Coast. Now I just want a DQ blizzard… mmmm…
i have the same boots!! i am such a huge madewell fan too!!
Sandy a la Mode
Lovely outfit 🙂
Adore your outfit. Totally effortless. Glad you made it home and it sucks that you and your husband were separated. The storm looks insane. I lived in Alberta for most of my life and I grew up with crazy winter snow storms. Don't miss them now that I'm living in Vancouver.
cool street wear!
Are you those boots comfy? i'm look for booties but I've always found heeled boots, even with a short heel, hurt the balls of my feet.
love this rainy day look!
I love the simple, pretty colors in this outfit – really cute.
I LOVE this outfit. I'd like to get a jacket like that.
I love how this is very much "My So Called Life."
You're makeup looks lovely
As I just said, You're makeup looks lovely
Super cute hat!
I love your low heel boots and beanie and bag! Ok, your accessories. Fabulous! Great with the pop of green.
you definitely got the PNW style down pat. 🙂
Where's the cute hat from? 🙂
That hat is so adorable! I love how cozy it looks!
I'm glad you made it back okay. I think the cord is a nice touch! you could do this in every picture. It will be like a where's waldo to keep your readers sharp!
