Another Monday, another half of another month gone. How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was great. I stayed close to home, and we finally got some much needed rain around here. I was almost about to complain about our recent lack thereof, but decided against it.
Week two of Me-Made-May has gone very well. In fact, the whole half of the month has gone great for me. I was a little nervous that wearing something me-made everyday would be a harder task than I thought. Not that I don’t have enough things in my closet that I have made, but that I don’t have enough everyday articles of clothing that I have made, such as shirts and more casual items. It’s turned out to not be a problem at all because I don’t usually wear everyday, casual items to begin with. I am mostly a dress wearer, regardless of the activities at hand.
Despite this wardrobe gap, I managed to keep it casual. And here’s what I wore for week two:
Monday, May 11th: I wore this skirt that I made from one of my most used patterns. I used to wear it a lot, but lately, it only gets worn this time of the year. It is one of those things that has a sentimental meaning to me, so I don’t think I will ever get rid of it, regardless of how often I don’t wear it. (Am I the only one with emotional attachments to pieces of clothing?)
Tuesday, May 12th: I wore this skirt that was a failed dress attempt. I just love it as a skirt, so I am really happy the dress never turned out the way I wanted it to. I did notice while I was wearing the skirt this day, that the material had ripped away from the side seam. Noting that a quick run through the sewing machine won’t fix. The necklace I am wearing is also something that I have made, as are all the necklaces that I am wearing this week.
Wednesday, May 13th: I have a repeat today. This skirt is just so comfortable and since I only wore it for half the day last week, I decided to get a little more wear out of it before it made its way into the laundry room. Plus, I was a having a ‘I don’t know what to wear’ moment this morning and it was there hanging up nicely next to a black t-shirt – outfit problem solved.
Thursday, May 14th: This is one of my newer made dresses and I have only worn it once before. It came out a little on the shorter side, and what you cannot see are the black cropped leggings that I am wearing with it. But you can see one of my rose bushes, and it makes for a nice background.
Friday, May 15th: This was another ‘I don’t know what to wear’ kind of a day. I had something else in mind, but couldn’t find a shirt that I liked to go with it. Then I remembered this very full, blue skirt that doesn’t get worn enough. It matched the gray shirt I already had on, so outfit complete.
Saturday, May 16th: For this day, I had already picked out my dress the night before. I ironed it and hung it up, ready to wear when it was time. Then, when it was time to get ready Saturday morning, the dress didn’t look that good on me. The sleeves were baggier than I had remembered, and it just had an overall loose looking fit to it. I was kind of bummed because there I was all ready to go, but now not really. I picked the best looking black top that I had, and this skirt you see here. I do love this skirt, and was happy with what I ended up wearing after all.
Sunday, May 17th: Lastly for this week’s round-up, this shift dress that I also like to wear this time of the year. I ended up wearing it without the sweater and instead a matching t-shirt underneath. It was hot and muggy Sunday, so longer sleeves weren’t very comfortable.
My pics this week were straight from my phone, so I know the quality is a little less than my usual for outfit photos. Most days this week I was rushing out the door, so I left the picture taking to my boy and didn’t bother setting up the tripod or the camera. He did alright, and I only found a couple of silly pics of him on there that he was able to sneak in when I wasn’t paying attention.
Well, that is all from me for this post. Two more weeks left to go, and I am in the process of making another dress, plus finishing one that I started a couple of months back. Hopefully I can get them added in on week three. See you back here next Monday for more of my Me-Made-May.
