Skirtember & Personalized Binder


Today, I'm doing a double whammy in this post.  First, I wanted to show you the page I made to put in my school binder!  I am using an old binder and wanted to be able to tell it apart from all our other binders from previous semesters that are lying around, so I made a little scrapbook page with our wedding photo and burlap.  Now if I ever leave my binder on campus, maybe they'll send it back my way!

Now onto SKIRTEMBER!  Have you heard of this yet?  It is a blog challenge to wear skirts all during September.  I caught on a little late, and on days where I don't leave the house I'm definitely not planning to participate...but I'm all down for class days and other days when I'm out doing things! 
I'm not the best on remembering to actually take the picture either...so forgive me on that!

Here we go, the recap! 

September 4th
Skirt from Rue21, brown tank was from a local store, and cardigan was from Kohls.  I'm also "modeling" my newly put together binder decorations!


September 6th
Shirt from Stage, skirt on sale at Walgreens, shoes from Target.


September 7th (OU Stripe the Stadium Gameday) 

Normally we'd wear red to OU games, but they asked fans to stripe the stadium red and white based on section numbers.  We were in a white section, so white we wore!
Skirt was $5 at Wal-Mart (I'm not above buying things on sale at Wal-Mart), shirt from Stage, bracelet from China.
Boomer Sooner!

 September 9th
I just wanted to clarify that this is a different shirt from September 6th!  I have a lot of red shirts...
I really have had that shirt so long I have no idea where it is from.  Skirt was a sale from Walgreens a few years ago, shoes from Target.  Oh, and that skirt is just as comfortable as wearing sweats!

  1. I'm just the opposite, love to wear skirts and dresses around the house, but when I'm going out... it's in pants!

  2. Really? haha It is still too hot in Oklahoma to wear pants outside, so it has been either skirts or shorts since May for me! lol

  4. I'm totally not above buying cheap clothes from Walmart, either. I got several of the uniform shirts that I wore to school all the time from there! I like your strategy of wearing skirt as long as you're going out for the day!

    1. Thanks Rachel! It is surprising how many items I have in the wardrobe that I actually love to wear that were a $5 or less buy from the walmart sale rack! haha

  5. That's such a pretty binder... I miss the days of needing those! I used to plaster mine with photos and cutouts and all sorts - people could usually tell it was mine ;)
    I love your skirtember so far, it makes me miss my wardrobe pre-operation-whole-life-into-38kg-bag! :D

    1. Thanks Erica, it sounds like the binders you made were pretty fantastic!

      I remember the days of living out of a suitcase...not much fun! At least it is somewhat easy to pick out what to wear every day...because you probably only have two weeks worth of clothes!

  6. A great week of wearing skirts! A few of my favorite basics have come from Walmart. :-)

  9. A skirt as comfortable as sweats is something I'd wear almost everyday. And I love the burlap on that binder.

    Kristin :)

    1. They are great! I haven't really seen more like them since I found those two at Walgreens, but they are the Sofffee (spelling?) brand. Thanks for stopping by!
