Kendi Wuz Here

I bought this tunic from Kendi, like, forever ago. And then I had no idea what to do with it. It is too long to pair with pants. It doesn't look right with black leggings and I don't have a green or pink pair. It is both low cut and short. I didn't do a great job of capturing it on film but it's also much shorter on the sides. But it was so pretty I held onto it in hopes something would come to me. And then it did.

I know you have heard me go on about pettipants before, but they came to the rescue again. I paired the tunic with a beige pair and just let the peek of lace be a part of the overall look. It worked beautifully.

AND...I totally made it through the work day in those clogs. So go me. And go clogs. High heels for the summer. Maybe even once a week. And I totally just realized this, but I got those clogs because I loved the ones Kendi wore all last summer. The pair Kendi had was from Target and when I tried them on they hurt my feet, but I looked for a pair that worked for me for a few months and finally found these at Nordstrom Rack last Fall, just in time to pack them away for the Winter. But it's finally warm enough to wear them! So double Kendi in my outfit today.

You look SO FABULOUS. I can barely stand it. Seriously. That hair is so rockin'. Plus the return of the LOL wolf earrings (ah ha ha) & that purse is CRAZY. I am so in love with this! Those colours in the tunic are amazing on you.

*starts fan club* (seriously, I'm President)

XOXO!

I love your channeling of Kendi :) I think this looks awesome! Love the colors in this tunic and how you paired it with the clogs...

You look AMAZING. The tunic is great and all the accessories just work flawlessly. Would it be weird to say "Hubba hubba"? Oh, well, too late. :)

Both that tunic and your legs are rock 'em, sock 'em!

Loren said...

I love the tunic, and I still love your new bangs, AND the purse. You really know how to rock a fringe. I've never heard of pettipants before... I will have to look into them.

Thanks for the tip. :)

I really love the hemline of that tunic and just keep thinking that on me it would be a dress. Also you are braver than I am working in heels, I wear flats to the Buff everyday.

This looks amazing! Casual and dressed up and fab all around! I really want to get on the pettipants train but I can't seem to find them locally and Amazon charges $18 for shipping! Do you know of any other places I should be looking?

My dear you are rockin this outfit. One of my faves. I think I may have to take my inpiration from you. I need some of these bloomers. I always fall head over heels for short dresses. The bloomers would let me wear the dresses sans leggings, bare legged, without the risk of showing my tail. Love it!

Laura said...

I love this outfit on you -- you're legs took a mile long! Also, love the bangs. You look like Betty Page!

Clearly your bangs are banging.
Also, love the cut of this tunic and the pettipants are, as always, pure genius!

Loving the bangs, and the bag that looks like a shaggy dog!

TrophyBoutique said...

Daaaamn girl you lot awesome! I love this whole thing you have going with the earrings, the bangs, the print and the clogs. You're like the vision I have in my head of a sexy 70's lady in the summertime. Except you don't have to go to work in my vision, and just have picnics all day long.
