Me Made May - Week 3

Monday, May 20, 2013
Another Me Made week down!

I don't know about any of you, but it's starting to get harder to get dressed in the morning. I find myself checking my instagram far too often to figure out if I've already worn a combination before or to make sure that there have been sufficient days in between before I can wear the same piece again.

It's been great for forcing me to think a little more creatively about what I wear each day, to pull out those Me Mades that don't get any wear and to not just throw on the same old thing each day. But it's definitely becoming a challenge.

All I can say is, thank goodness for cardigans and their ability to transform the same outfit into something new.

Day 14 - 
It's started to get much cooler in the evenings here now. Today I invented a new fashion - pj's under dresses. Comfy and warm!

I did baking today. I made a gluten free version of these. Yum.

If you plan to make them, put chocolate chips into the muffin batter as well. You won't regret it. Promise.

  1. So Jen, what do you wear when you are gardening or cleaning? I can't picture you in modern jeans... but then, who knows? You look lovely in high-waisted skirt and fitted dresses - i can see why you choose them so often! Good luck with the rest of MMM! :)

  2. Another fantastic week from you! I'm finding it challenging to get dressed too. I feel like I have enough me-made clothes for the challenge, but I just don't wear about half of those for some reason. Oh well, I suppose it's time to bring them out these last couple weeks!

  3. Omg I totally agree! I am having so much trouble. I hate being restricted in my clothing. And the weather here has just gotten chilly and most of my makes are summery.

  6. Thanks everyone!!!

    Gillian - I do have a pair of Heyday pants I wore in week 1 with my Jasmin blouse. I've also made a muslin of a pair of 40's pants that need some fitting things fixed before they become real pants.

    I actually used to have a stack of jeans years ago, I was a jeans and tee girl. My style has changed quite dramatically over the years as I found vintage styles and saw how much more flattering they were on me and how much more confident I became with my body when wearing them.

    When cleaning or doing chores, it's a circle skirt and a basic fitted tee. Circle skirts are so versatile that I find you can dress them up or down.

    I'm also a fan of cleaning in my pjs and doing house-y things in my pj's when I'm not going out or expecting anyone around.

    I also change into my pj's in the evening for relaxing in front of the tv or doing a spot of sewing.

    Basically, I love pj's and circle skirts.

  9. I love your circle skirt/cardigan "uniform" it's such a beautiful silhouette on you, and you have a nice variety of aesthetically pleasing combinations!

Thank you so much for stopping by to leave me a comment, like most people, I really do appreciate them all!

Due to the large amount of spam I seem to be receiving for some strange reason, comments may take longer to be published than usual. Apologies!
