Skirtember Week 1

This month I decided to take part in the Skirtember challenge. The challenge is officially to wear a skirt every day in September, but you can also do so for as many days as you choose. I decided I would wear a skirt (or a dress) at least three days a week in September – knowing that the challenge would be easy at least 3 weeks out of the month due to the Jewish holidays!

One of the harder parts of the challenge for me is taking photos of my outfits – as you can see below. I mostly took these photos on my own using the self-timer on my camera (the only one I didn’t take is the first one). I also planned my outfits and took the photos ahead of time for the outfits I wore on Rosh Hashanah.

September 2. Pretty bad photo of me! I wore a dress under a shirt.

September 3. I’ve had this skirt forever, a friend of mine gave it to me. It has pockets, which I appreciate for holding my phone! And Kristin told me denim skirts are in. The top is Old Navy and I love it.

September 5. I really like this outfit. The dress fits me well. I also love these cropped cardigans from Old Navy as you will see in the next two photos! And the necklace obviously makes the outfit.

September 6. I found this maxi skirt in my closet. I don’t think this outfit was really fancy enough for Rosh Hashanah though!

September 7. I actually wore a black and white tank instead of the grey and wore the same necklace as in the Sept. 5th photo.

Just for fun. I wore this on September 4 and see those jeans? I found them at Goodwill for $3. They are Old Navy jeans. Love it.

I’m enjoying styling different outfits and have been thinking about how I will bring my summer clothes into the fall season. Hopefully I’ll be posting more on that later this week!

I give you so much credit for wearing skirts and dresses more. I used to wear them all the time when I worked outside of the home. Now I seriously don't remember the last time I did. Just with little kids they are not comfortable or feasible at times. But you look so pretty and really happy you got to do this!! :)

You're looking great since your surgery, everything feeling back to normal?
The pink and turquoise are great colors on you :)

Love the RH outfits!! I've gotten into 2 skirts/dresses so far - I was lame and skipped shul on shabbat - I was shuled out!!


You look great, too, by the way!

Love the outfits! Thanks for participating so far!!

You got an awesome deal on those jeans--and for me also, taking the pictures is way harder than just getting dressed up! And I totally agree that denim skirts are cool!

Great outfits, I love a good denim skirt.

Oh my gosh, I admire this little challenge. If I'm in a dress/skirt on Sundays it's a small miracle!
Love your outfits, especially September 5 - too cute!

All of them are cute, and the third one down is my fave!

I think jean skirts are always in style, right? I think I have the opposite challenge in that I ONLY wear dresses, and with cooler temperatures coming and going, I know I'll have to wear pants again. I literally had no jeans that fit me. That used to be the only thing I wore ever.
So H&M rescued me this fall/winter.

Kristin said...

I love the black dress with the statement necklace. I'm not a fan of wearing those necklaces...but I love the way they look!

Thanks for joining in!

Kristin :)

I never wear skirts or dresses except for a special occasion. Love the necklace you wore. Old Navy has such cute fall sweaters!!

If this were a "contest", I'd totally win. All I have is skirts and a few dresses. :-)
