You can’t tell by these photos but I am in the best mood ever today. Why? Because I got 10 hours of sleep last night. I’ve been waiting for that kind of sleep since I was a toddler. It is taking everything in me to not hug every person I see today. I am very aware of how annoying I am today which is probably why it is best that I rarely get a lot of sleep — people like me a little better when I’m smug and sarcastic. But today I just want to spread love and happiness and rainbows and adopt free kittens and buy all the Girl Scout cookies in the world. This is me well-rested. Now who wants a lemonade with a swirly straw and a hug?

Also, be a doll and ignore the wrinkles today. This is one of those dresses where you can iron it all day long but one 10-minute commute and you are all sorts of wrinkled.

  1. I am in LOVE with that necklace! And the dress. and the blazer. okay everything! Congrats on the sleep!


  2. Yay for sleep! I however was not so lucky last night.  That said I am now the proud owner of the same Madewell bag you are sporting in this shot (and many others).  Knowing this makes me feel like I might someday be as well dressed as you are. Someday. 

  3. Great post. 

    If you get a sec, check out my latest post 'Cool and Casual'. 



  4. Absolutely love the jacket!  So much so that I finally made my first Bloom purchase!

  5. Love the dress!  I hate those pieces of clothing that wrinkle so badly – I always wonder why they continue to make clothing in that material!  Oh well, still cute, wrinkles and all!


  6. Love the outfit.  And the perkiness.  Although I'm so tired right now that if we were in person, I probably wouldn't be a fan.  

  7. 10 hours of sleep? I'm so envious! 
    The dress is awesome, despite the wrinkles! I know this kind of fabric, it almost gave me a heart attack. I sometimes get so frustrated with it that I feel like tearing it apart :))




  8. Can I just say I'm assuming I will love every single thing in a clothing store called PB&J Boutique? Or is that obvious? Also, I want a lemonade and a hug!


    See Mo Go.

  9. This may be one of my favorite looks for yours to date! I need that tote in my life soon. 

  10. you are wearing your good mood with your dress! Love it but I do hate those dresses that wrinkle the moment you iron them.

  11. I can't even remember the last time I got 10 hours of sleep. The dress is also super gorgeous!


  12. Wrinkles drives me nuts! If I have a piece of clothing that wrinkles easily – I am so tempted not too wear it – I feel so sloppy in it.  But you look great and I could not even see the wrinkles in it.


  13. Great Jacket and bag!

  14. Hi Kendi…you are super cute as always.  I haven't commented in a long time, but I have still been following along.  From Malaysia to the US to now Hong Kong.  Your comments make me smile all the time.  Thanks for making me laugh and bringing such cute style to the blogosphere!  
    If you get a chance, I would love for you to stop by and see my
    Designer Spotlight post styling a vintage Betmar hat…a fun PLAY style!
    Have a great weekend!

  15. these are so dreamy even though they're in an urban setting! how do you always find such pretty places to pose? do you ever find yourself uninspired by your settings? jealous of these locations while stuck in midwestern suburbia! 🙂


  16. Your tote is always so cute. I've seen a similar one but the inside isn't lined and I can't decide. Every time I see yours, I want it!

  17. Kendi, I have those shoes too and LOVE them! The only thing is they stain really easily, have you had a similar problem? On another note, how do you organize your closet, I am having a hard time figuring it out…
