Yay for the weekend! I hope you all had a great week. I felt like I was in a fog all week. I’m not sure why. But everything seemed to affect me more than it should have, and I didn’t have much drive. I guess some weeks are just like that.
I stumbled across Nordstrom last night and saw there are having a huge Winter clearance sale. There are a lot of purses, home accessories, shoes and clothing items that are highly discounted. I wanted to give you a heads up because it’s going on just through the weekend. I put together pieces to pick up that would transition into spring perfectly. I am so confused by the weather in California right now. It feels like summer and I’ve been in shorts all week, except it rained yesterday. Go figure. Let me know if you picked up anything during the Nordstrom sale! Have a great weekend!
I love that fedora, it would look so cute on vacation somewhere tropical! And I just started loving outfits that are more tomboy, so those adidas are calling my name! I’m also in desperate need of some basics. So those casual tops would be the perfect wardrobe addition!
There is something so great about a flowy maxi dress. I love the drama they bring. This one I especially love because of the print. Florals are one of my favorite ways to transition into spring fashion. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, all we see is red and hot pink, but those colors look pretty bad on me. So I like to wear more subtle colors but keep the feminine feel. Do you guys have any plans for Valentine’s Day? Andrew and I have nothing planned, so who knows! The weather has felt like summer lately. It was 92 yesterday and it completely confused me. Where is my El Nino? I’m still holding out! But for the time being I’ll wear some shorts and soak up the sunshine!
I’ve started to love this mauve color! In clothing and in decor. I have to show you my silk curtains in my office soon. There are from West Elm. I usually stray away from anything pink because I’ve never thought I look good in it. If you were to look in my closet I’m pretty sure you might find one pink top in total. But this hue is so much better! I am huge fan of these dusty shades lately. I think they work well with lots of pieces. You can pair with black, white, olive green, and grey. This top isn’t on Windor’s site anymore, just the bodysuit version. But I’ve found similar styles here, here, and here.
I’m still loving my lob haircut. I have a tutorial on it HERE. I like that once I style it, it will last a good 2-3 days. The only bummer is that I notice it growing more, which means more haircuts. Boo.
These sunglasses are by DITTO. This website lets you try out different designer shades and exchange them for a new pair every month! The ones I’m weraing are the Retro Super Future style. If you want to try them out, I have a code to get your first month free! Enter KENDRAVLOGS at checkout!
Hi friends! So today I have another installment of Be Inspired. I love doing these every now and then to reflect on what is going on in my life at the moment. So today’s quotes, like always, have a common thread. I’m working on taking the initiative for many aspects of my life. Mostly work related. A lot of the time I put things off (I tend to bookmark lots of emails) instead of tackling them right of the bat.
I’m also working on developing myself more. I know that is incredibly vague and cliche. I think the whole YouTube and blogging world can get a bit overwhelming at times. You are constantly trying to keep up with everyone else. I want to try to focus on my brand and my content. Nobody is exactly like you, which is why you should take full advantage of that.
The last thing I am working on is seeing the good in people. It is so easy to pass a quick judgement. It’s much harder to let things go and look past what is bothering you. You are in control of how you feel. I think we often think that other things make us upset, frustrated or down. It’s how we respond which really is completely our decision. I know this is getting a bit deep, but it’s getting late and this is what happens! I hope you all find peace in yourselves this week. (I might squeeze in some nighttime yoga…namaste!)
Hey guys! I hope you all are doing well. I have yet another fashion post for you. I have been on a roll with these. I’ve been getting some new pieces and they are too cute not to photograph them! This jacket in sage, is my new favorite. I also have it in olive green and it’s just as cute. I love throwing it over a super casual outfit to add a little flare. It’s also super warm!
And these pants are my new go-to. Seriously they are so comfortable. Stretchy pants, sneakers, and a backpack? Dream!
jacket: c/o fashion nova (use code XOKENDRA for a discount!)
I still have been wearing beanies and trench coats pretty much on the daily over here! I love this trench from Forever 21 in particular because of how lightweight it is. This is the perfect piece to transition into spring. It still keeps me warm if I pair a thick scarf on top.
I hope you all are having a great week so far! I’m heading up to LA tomorrow and will be staying there all weekend to attend some fun beauty events. I’ll make sure to post some pics on Instagram and Snapchat (kendraatkins)!
Happy Monday everyone! I had a busy weekend. We went to visit our friends who just had a baby and spent the morning with them. Afterwards we drove out to Julian to explore the town a little since Andrew and I haven’t been there before. It was super cute, and super small. We had some coffee and pie which was delicious. We also did a little antique shopping, which has become my new obsession. It is so satisfying when you find something so unique. There is this place on the way out to Julian that is called The Barn I believe. It was so great. I got a few old books and another milk glass vase. On Sunday we drove up to Newport to watch the Hawks game with a friend. What a crazy game! If you watched it, you know what I mean!
Today’s outfit is so warm and cozy. I love starting with neutral colors and then adding in pops of color with my accessories. I have been wearing beanies practically everyday. They keep me nice and warm, and also look super cute. My scarf and top are currently on sale at Loft so hurry before they are gone! They are linked down below! Have a great week guys!
Ah I love this combo lately. Pairing soft neutrals with little pops of color. I clearly am not listening to the no white after Labor Day rule. What about winter whites!? If you guys follow me on Instagram you have seen these sunglasses a ton lately. I think the idea behind this company is pretty neat. You pay $24 a month for designer sunglasses. When you are sick of your pair you just return them for a new style! This whole outfit is made up of super affordable pieces. The scarf is under $20 from Target and is super warm! I also cannot stop wearing these booties. They are super comfortable and I’m really into this camel shade right now. I hope you all have a great rest of your day and Happy Holidays!
So ever since I got this coat, I haven’t taken it off. Okay well occasionally. Andrew asked me last night, why do you always have that coat on? Because it’s cute and warm! If you are looking for a great trench that is warm for the winter, I’d highly recommend this one! I also have it in a dark green shade which is stunning. I kind of want to get it in black and grey now too. Yes the obsession is real! I’m also super into my thigh high boots. I think they add a nice edge to any outfit, and also warm up your legs! I hope you are all having a wonderful month so far. I am currently blasting the heater in an attempt to warm up my frozen fingers. I would never make it on the east coast. Major props to all of you who are actually in cold weather. Have a great day guys!
Up next in my series of gift guides is my personal favorite (see gift guide #1 here). I’m pretty much obsessed with office supplies. I’m currently working on updating my office and making it a place where I can be inspired. And you clearly see my color preference here. If you know someone who loves creating a pretty workspace, then here are some gift ideas for you. Or if that person is you, then send this list along to your parents, spouse or anyone else needing some gift ideas for you! In an ideal world, I’d snap my fingers and this entire list would appear magically beside me! (Can you even handle that mouse pad?!)
