We’ve gone through a bit of a cold front here in north Texas these past two weeks or so. (Oh, what is that you say? You got 3 feet of snow where you live? I still stand by the fact that you should just move to Texas already. Cold weather wimps are welcome here. We have everything you need, too and everyone rides to work on a horse. Promise.) It’s not that I mind cold weather, (I do, though. I hate it. I should just move to Florida, but the horse thing is hard to move past. It’s a bonus.) it’s just that once your brain changes to a season, you want it to be that season. Especially in Texas because for just a small amount of time it’s just above freezing and just below boiling. I want it to always be spring. Spring is the best time of the year; you get to wear dresses with light jackets and sit out on patios without sweating. What can I say? I’m a simple woman with simple needs. 

Also, I’m obsessed with this blazer. I know I’ve only worn it twice on the blog but I think I’ve worn it 7 or 8 times since buying it a few weeks ago. I used to feel bad about my blazer obsession but now I’m okay with it. Out of all the things to be obsessed about, I feel like blazers are benign. I mean, any obsession that makes you always look ready for a job interview is always a safe choice.

  1. You always mix patterns so perfectly! Love the pairing of that blazer with your top. I’m jealous that TX is having nice weather right now πŸ™‚

  2. Blazer, stripes, nude heals, and floral, all of my favorite things in one outfit – I love it! Where did you scoop up those bracelets?

  3. I know what you mean about the weather! I live in Florida and we had a cold front come through this week, it feels so nice… like Spring. For a couple of weeks I thought we were heading straight for Summer temperatures.

    I am in love with that blazer, I understand why you’ve worn it so much. I would do the same I wish J.Crew still had it! I would buy it in an instant.

  4. I so understand how you feel about the cold weather!! I am so not a cold weather girl. I know it is going to get really warm really fast, but I like to enjoy the spring for as long s possible.
    I love that blazer. I have a blazer obsession too. I love love that one. It is too cute! And I love floral and stripes together. Match made in heaven!

  5. I cant wait to be able to wear a blazer especially if I get one as cute as yours. Weather here is hot year round. Love the color of your jeans.

  6. Your first post with this blazer made me go out and buy it at my local J. Crew. MADE ME.

  7. Love the stripes and floral (of course). Man, Liberty sure knows it’s way around a print, doesn’t it? And I’ve worn flats with bare ankles the past few days specifically to spite the remaining snow on the ground. It’s almost APRIL for goodness sake. Grr. I really should move to Texas!

  8. Yes, I agree snow can get pretty annoying at times, but there’s something really wonderful about being able to experience all four seasons every year. The change can be refreshing, and it encourages me to find outfits to match the changing scenery! Love the blazer! I saw it at Jcrew the other day and thought of you πŸ™‚ You look lovely, as always!

  9. Love this outfit Kendi! (I will be pinning and copying it!). Big fan of mixed prints – stripes and florals (or stripes and spots). Thank you for always providing so much inspiration, the clothing compliments I receive I owe to you.

  10. Hi Kendi. Where did you get the other bracelet that you are wearing. Not the spike bracelet (i have that one) but the other one!

  11. Hello!

    I was just in Bloom earlier today (The Girl with the Pink Curls)!

    I got home, went on Pinterest, and saw a pin from your blog post today! I absolutely love your style and am so glad that McKinney has an adorable boutique that gives me a little piece of the city when I’m away from Dallas.

    I hope you have a fantastic week.

    Cheers!

  12. Yep, I’m pretty much obsessed with this outfit and that blazer. I can see why you have worn it multiple times already. The Texas weather is crazy though… I’m ready for the perfect 72ish degree days that only exist for about 2 weeks of the entire spring.

  17. Hahaha, loving your tidbit about the horses. I’m from Oklahoma, and people alllllways ask if I live in a teepee and ride a horse. Ridiculous.

    Love your outfit!

  19. I live in Florida and we’ve had cold weather the past week also! Today was only high 65ish, which isn’t cold for most, but for being almost April, we normally never see cooler temps. I’m trying to welcome it with open arms, but the Florida girl in me just wants sun and the beach.

  20. You should just move to Florida already! You would love it here, and we have lots of pretty horses too. Love those pants on you.

  21. Although my family lives in Texas, I decided to go to school in Chicago… it’s a decision I regret each year when January rolls around!
    And I’m also obsessed with that blazer. The crazier the print, the better!

  27. Those jeans. You’re killing me! I dream of wearing bold colored jeans, but at 5’1″, I just haven’t found the right cut/fit. Skinny jeans seem to be everyone’s miracle but mine. Here’s to dreaming. Loving the floral and stripes.
