I’ve never been so excited for a rainy weekend. I’m picking up my favorite gal from the airport this morning and she is staying all weekend long. And do you know what’s better than kid slumber parties? Adult slumber parties. As a kid you couldn’t have convinced me of this but I know the truth now: wine and not sleeping on the floor is much, much better. She used to be the store manager at old Bloom, which is how we met and became friends. She has since moved to Chicago (which broke my heart) but we decided that it’s for the best. It’s hard to work with your best friends. No, not because we fight but because we show each other youtube videos and other random shit on the internet all day long and it’s hard to get work done in between those tasks. But since she is here this weekend, she will be helping out in the store. Which basically means no work will be done this weekend. See why I’m excited about a rainy weekend? Good friends can change even the worst of conditions. 
I feel like that should be on an inspirational poster with a kitty cat under an umbrella in the rain. I’ll get to work on that. 
In other shop news, next Saturday is Small Business Saturday. It also coincides with downtown McKinney’s Home for the Holidays — which is a Christmas festival that is basically every one of your small town dreams come true. So if you’re in the area, you should really come down to the festival and of course come see us on Friday or Saturday. But of course if you aren’t in north Dallas and you for some reason don’t want to fly down just for one day, then I encourage you to support the local shops, stores and artisans in your area. Small businesses really are the heartbeat of every town, so share your support wherever you are. But that’s next Saturday. Not this Saturday. This Saturday is hug your best friend day*. 
*not a real holiday, I just made that up now.

  1. I love this description of how work days were spent with your bestie (is that still a cool word?)! Wine and friends make it all worthwhile 🙂

  2. How fun! I still need to stop by the new shop, I've just been crazy busy lately. I won't be in town for small business Saturday, but I'll be sure to stop by before the EOY. 🙂 Have fun with your bestie this weekend!

  3. Wow! This looks great… I’m loving the vest and booties! Super chic.


  4. Simple, comfy and casual is sometimes the best option when choosing what to wear in the morning. You look great in this outfit! Yep, it's def. hard to work with your best friends, you just have so much fun with these people and there's always something to talk about and you end up not doing much of what you've intended to do at first 🙂


  5. Hi Kendi! I love your blog, and have loved it for many years now. I just wanted to ask if you could do more side pictures, especially when wearing heels? I'm always curious as to how the heels look with jeans 🙂

    Love your style, and wishing you the best! x

  6. Totally off topic, looking for new handbag, am wondering how popular bucket bags are? Any good ones.

  7. This is a quintessentially Kendi outfit! 🙂 Have a great weekend with your buddy. I expect to see some blurry tipsy photos on Instagram.

  8. This is so you Kendi! I don't want the weekend because it's going to be super (SUPER) busy and I'm just tired. So off I go to clean my kitchen and try to be in bed at decent time


  9. Adult slumber parties are the best, oh and I need that Madwell Tote!! Have fun with your friend! frannychicago.com

  10. Compulsive shoppers often shop because they are unfulfilled, unhappy, depressed, and anxious. Shopping is a way to distract the mind to take itself off of overthinking. The more you shop, the more in debt, the more indept, the more depression. Its spirals out of control and doesn't end until one gets help. I speak from experience. I am a compulsive shopper and your blog doesn't help. It's a huge temptation. I thought that once my life was fulfilled, I would stop shopping. Wrong. I still continue to look at hundreds of fashion blogs on the internet. You probably having the biggest wardrobe out of all them. I've always wondered if you consider yourself a shopoholic. Is it like therapy for you as well? How do we make ourselves stop. I often tell myself I would rather buy a new outfit then spend money on a shrink.
