Me-made-stuff: refashioned skirt
Day 28: Coming off a warm spell over a week long, it was hard to adjust to downright cool temperatures, and I was totally underdressed in this outfit. Thankfully, I was spending the day indoors cutting fabric for the choir-dresses I’ve been working on all month, so it was all good. John yelled out “bag-lady” and snapped this picture as I left with all the bags of finished dresses, which was funny. This outfit is a little school-teacher to me, but in a good way I think.
Day 29: It was Tuesday, and I felt like dressing up. I still haven’t blogged about this dress – I just need to make a photo-date with the library (for some reason this dress just wants to be photographed among stacks of books.. is that cliché-y?). I’ve used that necklace quite a lot this month, which was a gift from John many years ago, but it sits quite high, and that doesn’t work well with all necklines. In a stroke of minor genius I attached a spare chain, and now it sits just where I want it to.
Me-made stuff: Elmidae knit top, silk tank, Skaugløtt skirt
Day 31: I decided I should go out on a slightly dramatic note, which also ended up being a nod to the first outfit of the month (oops! I just realized it actually was outfit number two! Huh, I guess I didn’t view cords and knit sweater as dressing up and totally mentally skipped it). You can see I’ve wised up to the weather and actually dug out my tights again, haha! After adding the oft-worn minty green necklace, I decided something else needed adding, and the belt that belongs to my grandma dress was a good fit. It actually sat a little lower most of the day (well, with constant adjustment), and made for a nice transition between the light top and dark-colored skirt.
May flew by, I can’t believe we’re into June already! I’m going to crunch numbers and make pie-charts, and be back sometime next week with thoughts on this years challenge. In the meanwhile, a happy Sunday to everyone!
