Skirtember #1

My first week back to teaching was a pretty decent week. Like any teacher knows, I am still getting a feel for my classes and their personalities. I have a student teacher this semester, and it is kind of fun to have another adult in the room. I am so used to spending 7 hours a day with 14 year olds, that I forget what it can be like to be around adults.
I started this Skirtember business with the greatest intentions. And then the rain came. Thunder storm-flash flooding-knocking out power kind of rain. That's not normal for the valley. But we are looking at a week of weather in the 80's an 90's so my intentions are to get some dresses and skirts worn. Any who... for week one of this adventure I have two dresses to share.

This is a modcloth dress I got last year on clearance to wear over bathing suits. This was at our Labor Day bbq.

Next up is my first day of school outfit. I feel like I should be holding a chalkboard listing my favorites on it or something. This is an Old Navy dress. The cardigan lasted about 5 minutes into first period.
Are you participating in Skirtember? it's not too late! Check out Kristin's blog for details!

Cute outfits!!

It's supposed to be really hot here too this week, so I think my skirts will get a lot of use as well!

I really like the Old Navy Dress! But that's some crazy weather to be having--yesterday I think there was a slight bit of flooding here, just in a few roads where the drains weren't working properly.
