Me Made May 2019 Week Three

Week three of Me-Made-May looks like a monochrome week. Lots of black and white prints teamed with a block colour or colourful shoes.

Monday 13th May
Top: Me-mended Top Shop shirt. Mended: 2018
Skirt: Marimekko
Cardigan: Gap
Shoes: Paul Smith black patent loafers
Watch: White G Shock
Necklace: Tatty Devine sample sale 2019

One of my favourite shirts bought from a charity shop in Highgate had a little collar update last year and it is still a go-to item in my work wardrobe.

Tuesday 14th May
Top: Colette Laurel top. Made: 2015
Trousers: Gap
Cardigan: Gap
Shoes: Paul Smith black patent loafers
Socks: Icecreams and ice-lollies were a present from a friend
Watch: White G Shock
Necklace: Tatty Devine sample sale 2019

It has lasted a decent four years so far. The print is not as crisp as it used to be but the cotton is lovely and soft now after many washes.

Wednesday 15th May
Top: Merchant and Mills Camber Set Top. Mended: 2019
Trousers: Anthropologie sale
Ring: Black and white spotty acrylic, Putney charity shop
Socks: Marimekko
Shoes: Paul Smith purple Miller brogues

I am really pleased with my mended Camber Set Top. The bias binding really works as a design feature to hide those unravelling French seams!

Thursday 16th May
Top: Deer and Doe Melilot Shirt. Made: 2018
Trousers: Anthropologie sale
Socks: Paul Smith
Trainers: Nike
Watch: Green G Shock
Ring: Black and white spotty acrylic, Putney charity shop

This was the first shirt I had ever made with a hidden button placket and sleeve plackets! The only problem is the whole front section is slightly shifted to the left (I'm blaming it on the confusing hidden placket instructions) but I still love it and wear it with pride.

Friday 17th May
Jacket: Nina Lee Richmond blazer. Made: 2019
Top: Merchant and Mills Camber Set Top. Made: 2017
Skirt: Liesl & Co Everyday Skirt. Made: 2017
Watch: Green G Shock
Shoes: Paul Smith green loafers

A full outfit of me-made items today. I enjoy wearing the top and skirt together to create the illusion of a dress. The viscose fabric is so soft and comfy to wear too. My Richmond jacket has been getting quite a bit of wear at work but I had to put it in my bag as it got quite warm later in the day and now it is SUPER creased! 

Saturday 18th May
Top: Camber Set Top (underneath my sweatshirt). Made: 2018
Jeans: Abercrombie and Fitch sale
Trainers: Nike
Jacket: Belstaff

The day started very overcast and grey and gradually warmed up. Of course, I don't have any photos of me wearing just my top. It is underneath there, honest!
I went to see the Swinging London exhibition at the Fashion and Textiles Museum in Bermondsey which was fab! If you get a chance to see it I highly recommend it.

Sunday 19th May
Top: Tessuti Monroe Turtleneck. Made: 2018
Trousers: Abercrombie and Fitch jersey pants
Shoes: White Arizona Birkenstocks

Doing chores, catching up on housework and the usual weekly life admin (ironing, cleaning the house etc) in my super comfy Monroe Tutrleneck. This was released before Tilly and the Buttons Nora top which was an IG smash hit when it came out last year - the style lines are VERY similar but the Monroe Turtleneck is FREE!

I have had an amazing week catching up with friends and doing fun things so I'll leave you with a few photo highlights below. How was your week?

  1. My feed reader was broken and so when I updated it I found out that I had missed a lot of your posts! I'm hoping to catch up soon! Great to see you're participating in Me Made May again this year, I loved scrolling through your outfits :)
