Me Made May 13 – Week 3

Dresses are so easy to wear #mmm13Self-drafted knit top, jcrew cardi, gap skinnies #mmm13 #workoutfit

Does this count? Poly chiffon turned into a scarf #mmm13Threw on a me-made dress today because it was so warm out! This is my fourth me-made this week on a goal of three #mmm13 #mmmay13

There’s a saying that if you don’t like the weather in New England, wait a minute.  Seriously, this weather has been so schizophrenic that you never know what the temps are going to be like the next day, which has made dressing for Me Made May a little more challenging this year than last in terms of planning out what to wear for the week.  This past week, surprisingly, was easy for me to wear more than my quota of three me-made items for the week – I actually wore five, but I’m only showing four here (need to take final photos of my seahorse skirt!).  I even incorporated a top into my work attire one morning.

What I learned this week: I’m still reaching for the things that I wore last year during Me Made May, which I guess is a good thing, because my style and tastes haven’t changed much.  I also have a hankering to throw on my Tiramisu dress quite frequently because of how easy it is to wear.  I better make a couple more for the summer!

    Very nice! I especially love your Tiramisu dress.

    I'm surprised to find that I've actually been participating, but not posting. I have like four me-made items that rotate heavily in my spring wardrobe.

      Thanks! I really need to cut out my pink Tiramisu, the fabric has been just sitting in my closet.
