The last week of may and with it the last week of Me Made May 15 has passed. It was a little more exhausting than the other weeks as I travelled from the far (German) north to the (Italian) south with a short stop Home in south Germany. That forced me not to overthink this weeks outfit and to wear warm as well as summery clothes. The backdrops also changed a lot in the course of this week, here we go:
I travelled back from the far north to the south of germany. Deutsche Bahn fortunatly stopped striking and we got home without any troubles. Unfortenautely my suitcase wasn’t big enough to carry another outfit that I didn’t already wear the weak before. So I wore my Belladone again with my Peacock Eyes Cardigan.
I didn’t really leave the house. I packed for our vacation in Italy and did a little grocery shopping and such, I wore a Flora Dress together with a Julia Cardigan because this was the last chance to wear them in May, as I didn’t take them with me.
Wednesday was travel day! I planed on wearing a dress but decided against it at the last second. My Sailor Shorts are much more comfortable especially if you have to set up a caravan :) At the beginning of the journey I also wore a PowPowJuna Jacke until it got too hot. Underneath I wore a Renfrew Top. Travelling to Italy went really smooth! And the landscapes were just beautiful especially in Switzerland. Our car broke down again on the last 30 kM, but we already had it fixed. Damn car…
First real vacation day in Italy! I wore my Gillian Wrap Dress, perfect for camping! I don’t wear glasses on my vacations. Only if I have to drive, just hate it to sweat on my nose :D
First day at the beach. I wore a yet unblogged Bikini and it didn’t fall off of me, yay :) Later that day Marvin took pictures of my new Lady Skater Dress at the beach and on the way I wore my Agatha Cardigan, as in the evenings it is still chilly here.
This picture really looks like campground, doesn’t it? Time for my beloved Bonnell Dress! Really cool is, that I don’t get cold on the places where the Cut-Outs are, don’t know why, but super practical! ;)
Last day of May and I was wearing another combination of Bikini and Lady Skater Dress. This Bikini is also still unblogged! The Lady Skater has a modified neckline and has no sleeves and I truly love ta fabric! ;)
My Me Made May had its ups and downs. In week 3 I overthought my outfits and I needed to kind of force myself to continue. But overall it was a good experience for me. I had a lot of fun seeing the photos of all the participants from all over the world, it inspired me a lot and I got to know seamstresses from all over the world. It was also a great experience to get so much feedback and comments on my outfits. I didn’t identify gaps or anything in my closet. But that wasn’t really my intention.. I could use some more Jeans tho.. But I already have a lot of RTW Jeans, so I don’t really need them. What I realize now at the end of May is that I often spare my self made clothes, they are too goof to get worn often. I think I do that because when I bought RTW clothes that really fir I had to spare them, because they were so hard to get. But I realized that now it is a good thing when things get worn out, that means, I can sew new ones and I’m still in that phase were you get better at sewing like every month. So I am now determined to wear the shit out of my sewn and knitted clothes no matter if I’m overdressed or not! And I’m right now so excited and wonder how this realisation took me so long!
I also let go a little more of my fear to write in English. At the beginning of May I still struggled with leaving comments, because the right words were kind of missing, but at the end I realized that this got a lot better. And it can only get better if a write more. BTW I’m glad if you correct me or write me if you don’t understand what I’m writing, feedback always helps me a lot :)
Thanks to all who have particapted in any form at Me Made May 15. It was such a great experience! And thank you all for those nice comments that kept me motivated :) I loved beeing part of such a creative community! :)
I’ll now be returning to my vacation and hope you have a great June! :)
