Weekendi

What you are about to see is real. The pictures below have no pizzazz, glamour or makeup and have not been retouched. Just a tee shirt and a skirt. Names have been changed to protect the innocent and unshowered.

Over the weekend I did 3 things: 1) showered once 2) watched 4 movies and 3) realized that when you add an “i” to the end of “weekend” you basically get a tiny Kendi and a new title for weekend outfits.

When I woke up yesterday morning, I knew that it was not going to be a shower day. (And by no shower day I don’t mean it was a bath day either. Just so we are clear — there was zero hygienic acts against my body or hair yesterday.) We had nowhere to go except for the grocery store and I have no qualms about showing up to the grocery store in this. So a tee shirt and a knit skirt was my outfit of choice.

Excuse my influx of posts over the last few days. As you can tell, I’m ready to finish up my 30 for 30 challenge and move on to the lonely contents of my closet. Bryan keeps finding me just staring at the other end of my closet with lustful eyes. I tried an outfit on the other day (in preparation for when I can wear my other things) and Bryan said it was weird to see me in different clothes. I now have a new appreciation for my old things. Mission accomplished. Now can I have my credit cards back?

    LOL @ Weeekendi! That's awesome.

    Just discovered your blog last week and I am absolutely loving it! Actually both blogs, you have great writing.

    Your weekend outfit is pretty much me 95% of the time, haha. Lazy days are great, but comfy outfits are the best!

    I got a little concerned when I first started reading your post and then I saw the photos, you look great! wish I could rock the no shower look like you can 😛

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08347100311984921620 Alyssa

    Well, I really like the casualness of this outfit! Your purse and shoes are especially stylish and they match great. ! :)

    Don't be afraid to show us yer bummin' days… reminds me that not EVERYONE looks like a million bucks every day! Although your 'no pizzazz' day looks like my 'pizzazz' day… ha ha ha ;]

    hehe, give that girl her credit card! You look great, but mostly I love the title of this post. and that's mostly because I like to sneak my name into words and don't feel so weird when others do it, too! I do it annietime, anniewhere I can! You should try it more often.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/05088173471960294467 Kathryn

    You can make something so simple look so chic. I wish I had your power!

    i love that linen skirt. also no shower kendi is way way better than no shower lexie.

    Your humor makes me laugh every day. So, thanks!! And even with no make-up/shower you look put together? How do you do it? Impressive!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/07402258286084034412 Celine

    HA you're funny. You still look adorable, just for the record. I'm excited for you to start wearing other clothes too! I bet you're going to have all sorts of great ideas…since they've been brewing in that head of yours for a while with nowhere to go. :)

    Oh I am emphatic that showers are overrated on the weekends. Totally unnecessary unless you're going to a wedding or you've sweat profusely and/or smell. You look adorable, natural and very, very weekend.

    Oh sorry, i got distracted by ugly people at wal-mart for a minute. Now I will say my comment…you look just dandy and i'm glad to know that i'm not the only one who doesn't shower every day (especially on weekends) and goes to the store not looking like I got off the runway. Either way i'm sure you always look fab!!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/10411190289961376267 Melanie

    I laughed out loud at Weekendi, haha. So good. I love your gladiators. I've been trying to figure how how to wear the ones I just bought… thanks for the idea!

    Ach, you dirty girl! Kidding, of course.

    You look marvelously comfy, and impeccably chic, as always. Showered or no.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/04935572039912318899 Tamara

    I think it's pretty unfair that you can look that good sans a shower AND make-up, you make EVERY look WORK!

    It makes me happy knowing I'm not the only one that feels disinclined to do anything of effort when the weekend hits. Such is life!

    wow… that's a fantastic representation of my good old home state. hahaha… *sigh*

    You've done a great job making different outfits with the clothes you picked. If i didn't already know I would have been none the wiser this whole time.

    But you still look super cute, even when you're unwashed and slumming it! I'm jealous, haha. Did you buy that skirt recently (within the last 6 months?) It's super cute.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/04217017076625610135 Destined For Now

    You're gorgeous! You should never shower if this is the result. :)
