“I got to Kansas City on a Frid’y By Saturday I learned a thing or two” were the lyrics I was singing when we got to Kanas City this weekend for a friends wedding. What I thought was a quick weekend trip, ended up being an extreme emotional rollercoaster (More on that later this week). One of my favorite things to do in Kansas City is eat, but my other favorite thing to do anywhere is shop. Shopping and eating Kansas City BBQ in one place is like throwing up the bat sign for my arrival (Picture Kate Spade Logo with a chicken wing).
Before I found out Jlo was also in town (Great Minds Think A Like Jenny) filming American Idol. We decided to kill some time with a little retail therapy. The shopping at Kansas City’s Country Club Plaza is like a gay dudes paradise. Stores like Forever 21, Gucci, Kate Spade, and H&M fill the outdoor shopping plaza. You may be thinking “Well we have that in Dallas…” while this is true we don’t have the beautiful breezy weather and outdoor scenery most of the northern Mid-west has. The outfit for a low key shopping day outside calls for a sensible shoe, therefore my favorite basic sneakers, basic jeans and basic tee, top it off with a fitted black blazer and you delivered comfortable casual man chic. For a girl use the same outfit concept but throw in a cool hat or statement necklace finished with a topknot and bold lip. I also find it important to pick a color story while traveling, I chose black and white with blue (My Power Color, Duh) accessories. This helps to keep everything organized and cohesive. Hope y’all had a great weekend! What are some of your favorite places to shop?
P.S. I never bummed into Jlo. Unfortunately fortunate for her.
