Winter Blues


You guys, it’s actually cold today. I have chill bumps as I’m writing this. I get to wear things like wool and scarves. I’m just like the rest of the population in the northern hemisphere! Hopefully it will stay cold long enough for me to complain and then long for the weather to be warm again. Because if you can’t complain about it, it’s not winter.

(PS: today is the last day to enter the Two Penny Blue giveaway!)


Blazer: c/o Two Penny Blue

Blouse: J.Crew Factory (similar)

Cowl: Gap — looks like they are sold out online, but I saw a few in stores :)

  • Lynette Hoyle

    I would never, ever in my life think that wearing those two bright colors together would ever be acceptable. But now that Kendi has worn them, it is okay. Acceptable. Even suggested! :)

    Kendi, anything in the works for your own clothing line? You'd have a store to house them in! :)

  • Jessica

    Here in California it is definitely been weird! We have just gotten over a really bad storm and I cannot wait for it to get super cold so that I can wear my coats. It would be awesome if we could have cold days but not along with all that rain. By the way, I love that new color. It's very pretty on you!

  • Amanda Casella

    I am loving these colors together, and that is my favorite blazer from Two Penny Blue! I also love your hair color. It really works well with these colors too.

    wish you a great day.
    xo, Petra

    Your jeans/pants always fit so well. I love to wear well-fitted jeans but find that the ones that fit nicely on my legs and thighs are usually tight around my waist. Are your jeans always tight?
