     some days, some really great days, you come across a blog that just sings to you.  a few weeks ago i came across kendi's blog, kendi everyday, and had one of those moments.  beyond her amazing style and creative use of colorful pieces, kendi is also hysterical.  her posts always make me laugh and within an hour i had read every post she ever made i wished that she lived next door so we could hang out.  a few days ago, kendi did a post (see it here) and i loved the way she layered basic pieces and used her accessories to bring her personality through.  because i've recently been in my little funk, i thought i would look to some of my favorite bloggers for inspiration.  so today i mimicked kendi's ensemble.  i paired my cotton shift dress with my super-soft tan cardigan.  it was an interesting change for me to wear a belt lower on my waist, but i wanted to stay true to what i loved about kendi's outfit.  with some floral brown tights, brown leather boots and a statement necklace i think my attempt was a successful one.  so if you haven't been to kendi's blog yet....go, go, go!
and a gigantic thanks to kendi!
