Another week of Me-Made-May down! Haha my friends and family were already anticipating this… every time I met up with someone this week, the first question was, “Did you make everything you’re wearing? It is May…” Talk about being supportive
With that being said, I started off the week (on Saturday, I mean) with a totally crap outfit/photo. WOOF.
Hoodie: Avocado Hoodie
Tshirt: (hidden, but I promise it’s there!) Organic White Renfrew
Shoes: Just some shitty house boots from Urban Outfitters, aha.
The weather took a turn for the COLD on Saturday, and coupled with the rain and the fact that our heat mysteriously stopped working (wtf, srsly), I refused to leave the house and instead snuggled up in my cozy hoodie. I love this hoodie so much.
Tshirt: Stripey Long-Sleeved Renfrew
Pants: Organic Red Thinlows
Jacket: Gap, reconstructed by me
Bike: Not mine :3
Sunday was still a little cold, but the rain went away so I joined Trisha‘s Farmer’s Market bike ride and I’m so glad I did! Of course, I didn’t bring my bike, but there’s a Bcycle station right outside, so I rented one with my new membership. Anyone heard of these? There are scattered all up and down downtown Nashville, which means I can take little bike rides on my lunch break now YAY.
Also, I feel like I should mention the jacket I’m wearing. I bought it a couple of years ago on eBay for a Halloween costume (I dressed as a hipster, if yr curious haha) but I never wore it after that because it was tooo big. I tried cropping the length – it was originally much longer – and still, too big. I finally just pulled the hem band and sleeve cuffs off, took up the sides (I didn’t even bother with flat-felled seams because, hell), and then reattached the bands. The fit is SO MUCH better now, and now I can finally get some use out of this damn jacket! So pleased with myself haha.
Dress: Simplicity 6268
Trench: Sewaholic Robson
Shoes: Urban Outfitters (and they are shitty; never buying shoes there again, ew).
Another cold and rainy day😦 At least my lace trench is a happy color
Blouse: Simplicity 4676
Skirt: By Hand London Charlotte skirt
Belt: Banana Republic
My boss told us we had to look extra-nice today (bc there were company bigwigs visiting the office, woohoo), so this is what I came up with. This is my front door; I was trying to ~mix it up~ with the backgrounds. Probably not going to take pictures here again, soo many cars kept driving by and I was getting self-conscious!
Oh, and because several people have asked: yes, that is a cowboy pig statue to the side. His name is Sergeant Deputy, fyi.
Top: Cake Pattern’s Pavlova wrap top
Skirt: Tilly’s Miette wrap skirt
Shoes: Nine West
WRAPPER’S DELIGHT, Y’ALL.
(and yes, I did actually wear those shoes all day… much to my surprise haha)
Dress: Simplicity 1803
Jacket: Gap, reconstructed by me
Shoes: Born (expect to see these a LOT, I just bought them and I’m kind of in love :))
This outfit makes me sad that I swore no repeats for May… because it is awesome, and my favorite, and I kind of want to wear it every day.
Shirt: Jalie 2921
Skirt: Megan Nielsen Kelly skirt
Belt: Nashville flea market
Sorry this picture is so dark and shitty… as you can see, it’s raining AGAIN today. But hey, it’s Friday, so I can’t complain
Things I learned this week on MMM…
– I need more basic knit tops. I actually have a couple yardages of fun striped knits, plus some solids I just got from Mood the other day… I should probably get cracking on that.
– I forgot how much fun it is to wear crazy bright prints.
– I am SO GLAD I just cut into that denim jacket and made it fit !!! Now I just need a short blazer/jacket that is not denim so I can wear it with jeans and not rock the Canadian Tuxedo look😉
How’s Me-Made-May going for you (if you’re participating)? Have you made any brilliant wardrobe discoveries yet?
