If this outfit seems the slightest bit familiar, well then chances are you're an avid reader of Kendi Everyday. But hey so am I! When she wore this outfit during the recent 30 for 30 I knew I could {and would} recreate it. That's one of the great things about style blogging, limitless inspiration. Yeah, sure there are the down sides too. The looks non-style bloggers {aka regular people} give you when you try to explain you blog....about clothes. Or the fact that people try not to stare, but stare nonetheless, when they catch you posing in the park. OR those precious extra 45 minutes of sleep you lose because you have to write a blog post.


Speaking of sleep, I didn't get much of it this weekend. But that's normal when you have a reunion with some of the nearest and dearest from college. Yeah, sure the cats {or as I said on twitter chats} lost, but gallivanting about Lexington with some of my favorite friends was fun regardless. So what if I may have told a few people I was still a junior in college?

Pin It!

  3. Perfect re-creation! I love this bright pink skirt and anything with horizontal stripes.

    Glad to hear you had a fun weekend in Lexington. While the game was on I said, "I'm rooting for Kentucky because Liz that I know from the internet is." =)

  4. I had to take a look, and while it is quite copied you both look different! I'd be more likely to copy your look, the pink tights are awesome with Kendi's look but I'd go for black like you did.

    I think I actually am a junior, or in the same range. I'm in university but all I know from the yearly titles are frosh for freshman and seniors of course. I'd say you'd pass for one! :)

  5. I love it, Liz! You look darling.

    I also love explaining a) a blog and b) a style blog to non-bloggers. The confusion in there eyes when I'm finished speaking is the reason I get up in the morning.

  6. You make a lovely Kendi copy! I'm hoping to take a trip somewhere with my college pals sometimes soon!

    It is a great recreation of Kendi's outfit! that bright color of the skirt, awesome!
    I admire you for taking outfit photos with the tripod outside, but recently they haven't been frequent. Hope to see you and the tree again soon!!

  20. I always get so embarrassed when people I know in real life find out about my blog. You know they are thinking, what the heck is she doing? Oh well, I love it so somehow I'm able to muster my courage and carry on with my head held high.

  29. Atleast we admit we're stealing. It's a form of flattery right?

    ReplyDelete
  30. It such an awkward conversation, right? Probably why I don't bring it up :)
