You know the saying ‘a tall drink of water’ I like to think that I’m more like a ‘full glass of wine’ today. For about two seconds I thought about just making this post an ode to red wine but then I remembered other people read this blog. So I will not. You are welcome. 

It’s pretty much a sauna here today with on and off rain. And while that’s good for the earth, it’s terrible for my hair. Chance of rain today: 90%; chance of a good hair day: 10%. I can tell the humidity by my hair; should have been a weather girl

  1. Love the heels and necklace! It's all in the details especially when your going monochrome! I just added pants this color to the list of things I want for my wardrobe the other day, always nice to see I'm doing something right πŸ˜‰


  2. The colors in these pieces are gorgeous. (I'm laughing at the comments about kolored pants Kendi. Ha!) I have a feeling we missed out on your ode to red wine…I'm sure your humor would have made it something special. πŸ™‚

  8. You, my dear Kendi, never seize to make me laugh! I love it and this outfit-wine is perfect for fall!

    And my hair is a perfect weather predictor too! It does the weatherman's job ten times better than they actually do!

  9. This is exactly my kind of fall look — as much burgundy/wine/oxblood as I can get on my body! You look gorgeous — love how the black heels ground the look.
