How’s your Me Made May going?  Are you able to keep up with the frantic pace of photographic outfit evidence?

I guess I’m breaking my own rules here. Originally, I had planned to blog my Me Made May outfits every third day, but realistically, it’s too much. Keeping up with writing, photo taking and editing is kind of a lot, so I’m scaling back for my own sanity and so that May’s posts here on the blog aren’t completely dominated by Me Made May.

Here’s the rundown of Me Made May Days 10-19

Me Made May
I suppose one shouldn’t mix wet hair and snow….

On day 10, I woke up to a backyard full of snow! Spring snows happen at least a couple of times her per year, but it’s always a little jarring, and it makes our trees a little cranky. I was playing violin at church this day and needed to dress warmly enough to protect my hands against the cold, but also in something that would allow me freedom of movement. I opted for my Neapolitan Drop Waist Sweater Dress, lilac ITY leggings, and orchid arm warmers from this Burda ensemble. Though this was a great choice for playing at 9:30 in the morning, by 6 pm, the snow was completely melted, and our tree was back to its green state.

On Day 11  I was wearing my Burdastyle 12-2009-111 blue twill moto jacket, giraffe sateen skinny jeans and a side tie t-shirt hack. So far, I’m doing really well with my pledge to wear more of my jackets and skirts!

On day 12, I upped the skirt/jacket game by wearing Burdastyle 5-2010-130 pinstripe skirt, ottobre 5-2014-4 tee, and BWOF 2-2007-104 jacket.

For day 13, I wore Burdastyle 1-2011-126 cardigan , and giraffe sateen skinny jeans and my favorite vintage silk scarf.

Day 14: Vintage Sheet Southport Dress and a coordinating Burdastyle 9-2010-121 turtleneck.  It wasn’t quite warm enough to go sleeveless.

Day 16: Looped Braided trim tee, and unblogged Jalie 3022 yoga pants in peach ponte with cream stripe contrast waistband.

Day 17: Clearly, I’m getting ultra lazy with everything here.  I spent the afternoon watching Giants baseball with my boys wearing my Colorblocked Hudson Pants.

Day 18: Free People Lace Cuff knockoff, same Burdastyle cardigan, and Ottobre giraffe skinny jeans as above.

Day 19: Apparently Colorado is under the impression that it’s actually Seattle, and the relentless, cold drizzle that’s been happening all day had me running for comfort in the form of my Velour Hudson Pants and Quilted Sweatshirt Jacket.  I’m not complaining because I know when summer hits, I’ll be dreaming of days like today.

  1. Your giraffe pants are my favorite of the bunch. It was because of those pants that I found your blog, from a link on the Jungle January blog, and i ordered the fabric from Apple Annie, and then ordered the sportswear fabric from AA as well that I used for gym wear. 🙂

      The giraffe pants have proven to be highly versatile, but then, most jeans are… Did you order the same fabric? If you did, I can only say that you will have a great time sewing it; it’s lovely stuff. I just looked at AA’s summer fabrics, and it looks like they have a lot of pretty linens and stretch wovens. Swatch time!

  2. I’m so glad I took my first time with Me Made May slowly. Three garmetns a week and two wrap up posts. So far it seems to be working for me, except trying to get pictures on these never ceasing gray days.

      That’s a great way to do it. I might think of that next year. So true about the gray days, but I’m trying to enjoy it, knowing that the furnace that is summer is coming.

  3. I have to admit it’s a little odd for me to see May outfits with snow! But then, our May seems to mostly think that it’s really the middle of July right now. You’ve got some really great layered looks going on here, and they still look like spring instead of winter, so I’m glad to see that you’re making the best of it!
