A Week of Wearing Skirts and Dresses

I don't know if I'll post each day for the rest of the week, but I got this idea from Michelle, aka Coffee Catholic's blog. 

The original idea was put out by another blogger:

Host: Emily @ Do Not Conform

Information: The challenge is to wear only skirts/dresses for an entire week of seven days, and then post a photo of your outfits (head to toe) on your blog…. read more.

Date: Tuesday, May 4th through Monday, May 10th

Here is my outfit for today:

I got the skirt last year at the Somali mall in Minneapolis. I really haven't bought many clothes since last year.

As you can see, I'm a big fan of layering. I typically wear a tanktop under everything, regardless of the weather. I will usually wear another shirt and a hoodie if the weather isn't hot. I love long skirts, but I think they only look long enough if they're basically dragging the ground. That doesn't work so well here in rainy Portland, so I've also picked up a few tunics and longer tops to wear with jeans. As you can see, no hijab today, perhaps I'll add one tomorrow.

And not to leave Layla out,

I love it Masha'Allah! Long skirts are awesome. And I looooove the Somali store that I go to in Boston; they always have the best variety of skirts and hijabs.

@geestig.asher, funny I think I was the 1st person to introduce lots of NCU students to the wonder of the Somali mall :-)
Some people would call me to get Sambusa with them.

@Banana Anne, Aren't they great? Skirts from regular stores are usually that awkward 1/2 calf length. Somali stores always have the long khimars, which are nice too.

aww great idea!!!! I loved reading your little posts about it and seeing the pics.

btw if you need more long skirts...lemme know, long cute skirts are everywhere and really cheap!

@Umm Ibrahim, InshaAllah I definitely will. I'll probably be looking to switch out a couple of them for new ones pretty soon.
