Me-Made-May'15: Days 14 - 20

Umm, how are we two thirds the way through Me-Made-May'15?! Every year this month seems to race but at an unnecessary speed! I guess with all the extra blogging, photographing and social media interaction, it's like there's no time to come up for air until the month is over. Thanks goodness there's the Me-Made-May'15 Flickr group and Pinterest board to go back to in case we miss any gems during the craziness. Anyways, let's talk about clothes.


Day 14 (kind of cheating because this photo is actually from Day 5, but I wore exactly the same on Day 14 but failed to get a photo taken)
Me-Mades:



Day 15 (Today was the Flickr group's theme 'Something Old', so I unearthed this top which I haven't worn for over two years since before I became pregnant)
Me-Mades:
(worn with secondhand jeans)



Day 16 (Spent on trains, not an impressive number of me-mades being worn here, I'll admit. I'm not proud of myself. I always struggle with what to wear to travel in.)
Me-Mades:
(secondhand jeans and cardi)



Day 17 (spent in other people's kitchens)
Me-Mades:
Day 18 (Due to a packing FAIL I'm wearing the exact same outfit as Day 16)
Me-Mades:
(secondhand jeans and cardi)



Day 19 (Probably the most colourful person who was briefly in Eaglescliffe that day!)
Me-Mades:



Day 20
Me-Mades:
Leopard print Jenna cardi (not worn in picture)



Thoughts this week:

  • I failed to pack successfully for a little trip we made Up North. It was MUCH colder than I expected. I've ended up wearing trousers/jeans more than my allotted 'allowance' this week, so I have to wear a skirt or dress for an extra day next week. 
  • I'm using all this skirt and dress wearing as an opportunity to figure out which pairs of my tights I can bear to wear for more than 10 minutes and which I cannot. Those that are too uncomfortable or tight around my waist are being put in the textile recycling bin or being kept aside for potential refashioning like I did with these

I love your colourful day! I did the same last weekend, though it was a bit nicer as it was too warm rather than too cold so I'm not complaining! How's it going with the Mabel, as you weren't sure about it being comfy were you?

I love your day 20 outfit - very chic! :-)

Loving your Day 19 outfit. Really nice to see someone rocking some colour. Everyone has been very drab up here. Must be the weather. Xx

Yep, it's been grim up North of late :-) Weather making it much more of a challenge this year, totally unpredictable! Loving seeing you in all these skirts and dresses, they really do suit you well.

I think you are doing brilliantly, well done. Going to assess my tights now. I know I have two pairs that I can only wear for five minutes!

You are doing brilliantly. I managed to wear the 'utility' skirt and floral top outfit again this weekend but haven't managed much this this week.

I don't think you should beat yourself up over day 16. After all you have included your cutest Me-Made accessory so far. What a gorgeous shot of the 2 of you together.
