Autumn florals

Here is the third item of the swap, and for me was the hardest to style. The skirt is lovely, and Lily of Love Charles Vintage hemmed it to have an elegant fishtail effect. It isn't normally something I would pick out, so I didn't have much to pair it with. Since the skirt is so feminine and flirty, I thought chambray and black leather boots would toughen it up. The idea of playing with sleeve lengths was inspired by the fishtail, and I added the short sleeved oversized sweater.

  6. I love how you styled the skirt up! I definitely tend to shy away from ultra girly garments, so I can appreciate the "toughening up" business. The boots and chambray top look wonderful with it!

  16. Aww you look amazing! Kallie you did an amazing job making this skirt a "you" style :) I wish you could have come to the 90's party too, you  are always dripping with 90's inspired swagger. One of these days we will hang out. It will be awesome.

  17. You have the best face ever.
    Love the skirt on you; I've never tried the longer-back effect, but I'm crazy short so maybe it's for the best.
