New Skirt, Meet My Blog

When I saw this skirt my immediate reaction was “I’m going to remix the h out of you, skirt.” And when I have that strong of a reaction, I know that what to do. So I bought this skirt with my Christmas money on super sale (hello, 50% off!) and I love it. I’m having to tell myself not to go back to Loft, I just can’t help myself when I see the words 50% off. It’s like winning the lottery, but better. OK not better. But my chances of saving money are much higher than winning money. Of course, my chances of spending money either way are very high. This is why I should never play the lottery. Shopping is risky enough. 
I talked my husband into taking me out to lunch and then talked him into snapping some photos. And then I talked him into marrying me. Oh wait, I already did that. No wonder he was confused when I got down on one knee and proposed. 
If you can’t tell, this week I am silly. I’m still running on the Christmas-spirit fumes. Don’t worry they’ll go away in a few days and then I’ll be back to my dry, humorless self. Till then, it’s silly time.

    love that skirt!
    i'm about to make my man take me on a date haha :)

    This is a great skirt. And both LOFT and Ann Taylor suckered me in with the 50% too. …twice.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/07908128771097015772 Devon

    Oooh I love that skirt! I saw it last time I was at the Loft, but they didn't have my size. In fact, the entire store was out of my size. argh :( Can't wait to see how you remix it!

    You? Dry and humorless… your crazy lady! :) Love this skirt! well worth the gamble.

    Lol at "skirt I'm going to remix the h out of you," I'm cracking up, it is pretty awesome though, as sales after Christmas have been!

    Peace,

    Love this, Kendi!
    I own everything you are wearing in this outfit, other than the skirt. And I have been eyeing the skirt online for a few weeks now. Are we the same person? Well, I guess you are much cuter and remix much better than me. But we have lots of the same stuff!
    :)

    Ah, love the skirt! It's so darn hard to pass up the 50% off sale…on already reduced prices too…impossible.

    You're not silly.. you make your readers smile :) And the skirt is really cute! x

    I really like how you paired a casual top with a fancy skirt!

    Kendi – I can't do anything but LOVE a denim shirt with nearly anything- and a lacey, girly skirt!!!! I am swooning. Beautiful! I, too, bought the skirt now that I see how you styled it. xoxo

    Cute outfit! I love how denim shirts go with just about everything. I often talk my husband into taking me out to dinner when I don't feel like cooking, lol! Also, I definitely wouldn't describe you as humorless even on an off day.

    Dry? Maybe. Humorless? Never. That is one fine addition to your well-organized closet and has actually inspired me to wear the black lace skirt I have in my closet which I've never worn because I didn't know what to pair it with. Denim shirt. Never would have thunk it. Gracias, Kendi.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/01853881790774269988 abigail

    so since your new skirt has met your blog, can it now come meet me? and my closet? my waist?
    thanks.
    ps. i'll take the boots too :)

    Fabulous skirt! I would not have thought to wear brown boots with that outfit, but I LOVE the way it all comes together! Wish I could have that outfit in my closet!

    I love the skirt with the denim! Can't wait to see how you remix it :)

  • http://stylefyles.tumblr.com Mary @ stylefyles

    My sibs and I also did some serious damage with the after Christmas sales…and scored some pretty good deals at Loft.

    I'm pretty sure after Christmas sales are the best and worst things ever….but as long as you have Christmas money, you're good to go!!!!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/13201889966775251987 Iris

    Love the skirt, I can't wait to see how many different ways you remix it!

    P.S. You are anything but, dry/humorless. You always make me laugh!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/14183951082939623834 CessOviedo

    Loved the mix of denim shirt and lace! Totally a risk but it worked out perfectly, perfect necklace to go with this not so common combo, loves it! …

    The skirt is so cute and that 50% off sale is dangerous stuff.

    oh i just love the skirt! lace is one of the best things about any article of clothing. and i think i like silly you haha!

    That skirt is awesome. It can go from super casual to formal easily. Great staple piece, and it's romantic. You seem to be on a romantic clothing kick.

    Ok, so I've now heard that they're basically giving things away at LOFT multiple times. I've gotta get my bum there before all the cute stuff is gone!!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/15271159201006142602 Pam @ over50feeling40

    You made a great purchase…50% off is always good and you can do so much with the skirt! Great choice!
    You would look great in the necklace I am giving away in a contest on my blog…come on over and enter!!!

    Aaaand I need to find a Chambray shirt. Pronto. Wasn't the highlight of your outfit I know, but I can't get over how versatile you've made it!

    beautiful. I love that necklace. I feel like every time Suze wears hers I tell her how pretty it is! ha.

    I love this skirt with that shirt. It's such an awesome juxtaposition.

    And also… i did not know there were such sales going on at LOFT… oh dear.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/02960779376547724163 Lucky Linski

    Agh! I had that skirt in my hands today and decided to restrain myself (I already had a sweater and a silk top in my hands too). Oh, seeing how you mixed it….makes me want to drive to the mall right now. I guess there is always tomorrow :-)

  • http://feeltherapture.tumblr.com jensen taylor

    I've worked at Loft for the last year, and I've followed your blog for about half that time. I love this skirt so much more than the dress we got in the same material and at one point thought "I wonder if Kendi has this skirt, she could probably do a lot with it". Needless to say, glad you got the skirt & that you got a great deal on it!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/13015946397027534393 What Would a Nerd Wear

    your hair looks terrific like that! i wish i could get mine to achieve that kind of volume–it's gorgeous!

    and your top reminds me that i have to break out my denim button-up, too. inspiration all around, as usual. xo

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/04146810308940062645 Zahra Mahdiatari

    The skirt and the necklace? I totally have no words! It's perfectly beautiful how you mixed it :)

    Love the skirt!!! I went to the loft this weekend to use a gift card from my mom & racked up on the 50% sale + a $20 off coupon!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/10660957054888519049 Mandy

    I have a thrifted skirt similar to yours that I just can't figure out how to style! I'm going to be using some of your outfits with this skirt as inspiration…

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/10663817627108573791 Jules

    So cute Kendi! I have decided I need a lace skirt. I saw one recently at a BR outlet and dang it I should have gotten it. Can you come to NC and shop with me? Ha ha!

  • http://myfashiontake.tumblr.com Myfashiontake

    You look like Rachel Bilson with that hairstyle! Pretty!

    Love the skirt! I bought the dress version at Loft last week for NYE. I LOVE it! You look great and i love the brown boots with it. So fun! Oh, and has anyone ever told you that you look just like Katherine McPhee from American Idol. Seriously, ya'll could be twins. Love the blog!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/17054686256991598688 Kendi Lea

    Thank you, friends/lovers!

    You know, I didn't write this in my post but this outfit came out more country than I wanted it to. It only proves my point that this skirt is going to be super versatile.

    Also, I was this close to naming this post Country Strong. This close.

  • http://trivandrumgirl.wordpress.com Leya

    Is that skirt sheer lace?

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/17054686256991598688 Kendi Lea

    Leya — it's like a cut-out lace overlay on top of a creme colored skirt. It's two layers, but it falls really nicely. But definitely not sheer!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/07373596012035768319 MJ

    I love it!! So gorgeous…maybe I'll just stop by Loft and see what I can hit the jackpot on!!

    When you see a piece that you immediately can picture a dozen outfits, then it's almost required that you buy it, isn't it? Especially if it's on sale. I just bought a cardigan at J Crew for $20, including shipping.
