Preppy Goes Back to School a Fourth Time – Lilly Pulitzer Binder Covers 2016!

Lovelies I have a confession: I’m entering senior year of high school and I still feel like at the beginning of last year I was a scared little freshman.  It’s a weird feeling knowing that you used to look up to the grown-up high school kids who seemed to have such fun lives, when in reality now you’re them and I personally couldn’t be more confused about nearly everything in my life right now.

That being said, here starts the Preppy Ballerina Back to School series!  I’m here for all your back to school needs from DIYs to outfit ideas to “What’s in My Backpack?” to binder covers {obviously}.

I release my Lilly Pulitzer binder covers every year for you loves free as a thank you for being such amazing readers!  All I ask is that you make sure to give me credit when pinning, or sharing on social media.  The last two year I saw a lot of pins and Instagram posts that weren’t and it was a little frustrating, just because it takes me several hours to find prints in the right dimensions, edit, save, and upload all of these.

This year I’m releasing the binder covers early, in my opinion. If it were up to me, September 1st would be the earliest date for any and all posts relating to back to school and anything fall related. Yeah yeah, I know, fall wardrobe shopping and back to school planning needs to start before fall and before fall actually begins {Also, to those of you who start school in the beginning of August, I am so so sorry.  If I were you I would have probably switched schools}.

Moving past my little ramblings and midnight musings, here is the new set of binder covers!  I did kind of a blend of older and newer prints with one Kate Spade mixed in there (I know, not Lilly, shocking!). I’m thinking about releasing a second set at either the end of August or halfway through the school year, so if you have any print requests, leave them in the comments below and I’ll try to accommodate as many as possible!  I’m limited by print pixel dimensions, but I’ll try my best.  You can stay up to date with all that by following me here on Blogger, on Instagram, orrrrrr on Snapchat (I’m now on Snapchat guys!  My username is PreppyBallerina)!

If you’d like to see the binder covers from the last three years, click here for 2013, right here for 2014, and all the way over here for 2015! I promise the quality gets better as the years progress.  I learned.

If you don’t already know how to customize these binder covers, my tutorial is right here!

Otherwise, enjoy this year’s collection!

Note: If the binder covers print or download pixelated, try downloading them directly from Google, the public folder can be viewed here.
