Well hello you!  I bet you came by because it's Wednesday and you know its time for the Fatshion Faceoff, right?  (Or if you're a first-timer that stumbled here via whoknowswhere, click the link at the top of the page to find out what the Fatshion Faceoff is all about!)  Anyway, this week's challenge item was chosen by me and I picked... a patterned (or printed skirt)!  Wanna see how I styled mine?

necklace, ring - Forever21 | top (similar), L - H&M | belt (similar), XL - Target 
skirt, UK18 - bday gift from Hannashoes, 39.5 - Miu Miu via Net-a-porter sale

The skirt I'm wearing today was given to me for my birthday by my friend Hanna.  I love the pattern and of course, the awesome pleats.  School is starting very soon for me and I've been running around like a crazy woman trying to get ready, so I kept things simple and casual paired it with this new shirt I picked up from H&M.  I actually scored several great basic shirts from there recently, and I really love the mustardy color of this one.  Who knew H&M had so many cute, simple tops?  

Anyway, now that you've seen my take on a patterned/printed skirt, make sure you clickety click on the links below to see how the other Fatshion Faceoff girls styled theirs!  You might have heard already that LuAnne is taking a break from her blog, and sadly that means a break from the Fatshion Faceoff.  We wish her the best, and look forward to her return to the blogging world! :)
