As promised, here's my recap of the first six days of Me Made May.
Overall I've met my goal of one item per day, though I cheated a little on day 4. It seems that I'm having the same problem as other bloggers in that I have more items better suited for casual, summer days. I thought since Self-Stitched September last year that I would have made enough fillers for my wardrobe, but I'm still lacking enough variety for work or for super casual days. If I can achieve one of my goals for 2012 - working with knits - I think I can definitely fulfill the latter. And I'm definitely more conscious about making more items that I can wear for work. So, it's a work in progress.
Anyways, on to the recap!
What I Wore: Peter Pan Polka Dots Blouse (Banksia)
What I Did: Went into the office
What I Did: Again, the office. Working hard for the money.
What I Wore: Tree of Life Dress
What I Did: Work, work, work
What I Wore: Chirality Scarf. See what I mean about cheating? But I did make it!
What I Did: Worked from home in the day, then went to the Snow Patrol concert in the evening. Woohoo! It was a beautiful day but a little chilly, so the perfect weather for the scarf.
What I Wore: Lemonade at Lunch MTL Dress
What I Did: I convinced the majority of our adult Irish dance class to take a standup paddle board lesson. We went to Santa Cruz and had a great time paddling around the harbor. Afterwards we came back to our house for a little BBQ and some margaritas. I got dressed up in this outfit that I made last summer.
What I Wore: My Colette Sorbetto blouse with some jeans
What I Did: I needed something really casual to wear as we went to visit some farm animals that my friends' daughter is raising. In particular I wanted to play with her little black lamb. She got him all situated in my lap for a nice belly scratch. I think Wallace may need to get ready for a new sibling. I'm in love.
Now, on to week 2!
