The Challenge! day 3 - "funky" layers

*Don't* forget to join the event - only 4 days left! There is a "Mr. Linky" feature at the bottom of this and the rest of the Challenge posts where you can leave your own entries. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
Fall is definitely in the air! Everything is wrapped in a crisp-coziness. Though I admit I'm not the biggest autumn aficionado, (despite my sentimental feelings - I'm a summer gal all the way!) it IS a new season, and well, I look forward to whatever surprises the Lord may bring! Plus I'm really enjoying all the fall-ish clothes; darker yet airy, warm but still breathable. Plus layers are a lot of fun, and so easy to work with when you are just *too* warm. I think I'm going to try layering more this year!
This outfit is centered around a skirt I recently bought at a neat Chinese/Indian clothing import store called 'Funky People.' Guess that makes me "funky"? :P
The skirt was a bit big, so I pinned it for this shoot then took it later today to my Nonno (grandfather,) who is a tailor by trade. The Lord knew our short brood of ladies would NEED a tailor in the family. lol
All that said - I didn't have a blue shirt to match the specks in the skirt, so I paired a cream-colored quarter-sleeved sweater with a short-sleeved jean shrug.

  1. That skirt is so pretty! I love the design.

    You are so blessed to have someone who can alter clothes- I'm only 5' myself and know how hard it is to find clothes that fit!


  2. Oh, what an adorable outfit, Michaila! The skirt is just lovely! <3

  3. Oh, Michaela! The middle picture in this post is an eye-grabber. :~D

  4. Oh, this is gorgeous. I love the skirt paired with the shrug. ^.^
