The Work Bag, The Necessary Accessory

Ladies (and gents), it can be a challenge to find the perfect workbag. A bag that can fit all of your important items. Something that has enough room for your wallet, personal items, basically everything you already throw in your purse (or pockets), PLUS your breakfast/lunch, a change of shoes, maybe a computer, an umbrella and any other items you deem important for your work day/commute. So we've taken it upon ourselves to find some super chic options to ensure you're living your best Kyndafly life!

Packing for a quick trip? Like leaving today come back tomorrow type of trip? Well, we're here to help you pack light and still manage have everything you want (and need). And of course, you'll have a few options, because fly ladies (and gents) gotta have options. So, as I prepare for my very own whirlwind jaunt fours hours to the south (what up STL!), here are some very helpful tips for what to bring.

  1. Commit to no more than three pair of shoes, and really three pair may be one too many. Bring a comfy, casual pair (sneakers) and a dressy pair (stylish, yet versatile). Having a versatile dressy option will allow you to wear it with multiple looks, should your time on this trip include a few events.
  2. That brings me to clothing options. Separate the trip into two parts, travel and events. For time spent traveling, be it by plane, train or automobile, think comfort. Joggers, hoodies, t-shirts, leggings, etc. And since this trip clocks in at less than 48 hours, you will likely be able to wear the same travel clothes on the trip home. For your events, bring two bottoms (pants/skirts) and a few shirt options. Don't forget pj's, socks, undies! 
  3. Lastly, you'll need your toiletries and accessories, which can likely be packed in the same bag. Pack the essentials and you should be good to go!

Now all you have to do is muster up the energy to enjoy every minute of your super quick getaway! Happy travels!

Dress Code, Smess Code

 

As soon as I hear the phrase "dress code" I immediately cringe. The idea of adhering to a dress code just might be my kryptonite. In fact, I was always so grateful that I didn't have to wear a uniform to school. Just the thought of that was too much to bear. Wait, maybe I shouldn't be revealing all this...but seriously, unless we are talking about a work dress code, (which you already know we wholeheartedly respect at Kyndafly), dress codes should be loose and perhaps looked at as more of a "guideline." 

Ever since I can remember, I've never wanted to be a carbon copy of my peers. I would always seek out shoes that I felt NO ONE else would wear. And I found great pleasure when in fact, no one at my school had the same pair as me, it was a total "Victory" (in my Johnny Drama voice). But, don't get me wrong, I'll play along to a particular theme or follow the same overall trends as my peers, but I'm likely going to throw in my own personal twist, making the look uniquely mine. 

So, be warned, I'm probably going to show up to your "All White Party" in a bold and dynamic color (possibly matched with something white), because, thug life. And because, if we're all wearing white, we may as well opt for uniforms, and wants to live in that nightmare? Not me. I've always preferred to stand out, and explicit dress codes just don't allow for uniqueness. Therefore, unless it's work or you know, someone is footing the bill for the evening, I can't resist the urge to go all rebellious and go against the dress code. How do y'all feel about dress codes?
