Me-Made-May Week Three

Week three of Me-Made-May felt like a loooong week due to a lot of work related things which I won't go into here. Needless to say it was such a crazy week I had to plan my outfits and lay them out the night before so I had less to think about with many early morning starts.

The weather featured quite heavily in garment decision making this week as it started on Monday quite warm and sunny only to turn cold - this was particularly annoying as I had decided to unleash my milky white legs to the world and I ended up feeling a little under-dressed and chilly.

The remainder of the week was all about layering and I showcased my Liberty Laurel shift dress on Thursday which was a very comfortable wear.

This is fast becoming one of my favourite me-made dresses as I just love the fit and the fabric. I also made the corsage from felt and some beads back when corsages were the rage after Sex and the City. I really should do a tutorial on how to make them!

  1. Great outfits again this week Caroline. I especially like Tuesday. The colours work so well together. I agree with you about the weather though. I am still in woolly tights most days and bought a new umbrella!

  3. Fab outfits. And I just love how you choose the perfect necklace for each one. Every now and then I remember to wear a necklace and I'm always pleased when I do, but its just not something I always remember.
