Me-Made-May '14: Week 4

Well, we're almost at the finishing line, folks. Have you been enjoying Me Made May 2014? I confess I'm starting to struggle - I don't have a huge wardrobes of me-mades yet and so I'm starting to repeat, and it's not as fun as it was at the beginning! Oh well. It's still been a valuable lesson in what I have and what I actually wear.

But let's get on with our Week 4 recap, shall we?

Day 19 - Monday 19th May

Jen wore her Pauline Alice Cami dress (blogged here). Shoes are Accessorize, via charity shop. Belt is charity shop.
This was a day at work. It was pretty sunny so my blindingly white bare legs came out. I like this dress a lot and should wear it more. It always gets compliments.

Day 20 - Tuesday 20th May

Elena wore Dixie DIY ballet dress (again, blogged here). Belt is from charity shop.
Elena says: On Tuesday I woke up feeling more tired than usual and a little sort throat-y, so wanted the most comfort I could possibly have without wearing my PJs - hello again Dixie DIY ballet dress!

Day 21 - Wednesday 21st May

Jen wore her Grainline Scout elephant-print tee again (blogged here). Skirt and belt are charity shop. Sandals are F+F.
Wore this to work and then out to dinner with friends in the evening. Worn this already this month and I'm not surprised - it's a great tee for tucking into skirts or wearing with jeans.

Day 22 - Thursday 22nd May

Elena wore Colette Zinnia skirt (blogged here). Jumper is ASOS.
Elena says: Working from home today, hence the no shoes. This skirt isn't the most comfortable for lounging around, but was good for a day of working from home (with a thrilling trip to the polling station at lunchtime). I'm a bit unsure of the overuse of polka dots in this outfit, but love the look of cropped jumpers with high-waisted skirts, so won't lose any sleep over it!

Day 23 - Friday 23rd May

Oh no! MMM FAIL!!! Had a day off from work so actually spent all day in... my pajamas. And as I haven't made any pajamas this was a MMM fail. Sorry not sorry guys, sometimes you just gotta spend all day in your pajamas.

Day 24 - Saturday 24th May

Elena wore Burda 10/2012 #114A rouched top (unblogged) and Tilly and the Buttons Miette skirt (to be blogged soon - promise!). Boots: ASOS.
Elena says: I like this jumper the more I wear it, and people are often surprised to hear it's homemade, which I love. The skirt has quickly become a firm favourite and gets lots of compliments, so I have another Miette (this time in denim) planned for summer. 

Day 25 - Sunday 25th May

Jen wore tribal Darling Ranges dress (blogged here). Sandals again from charity shop.
This was a lovely sunny day and we were going to Josh's brother's for Sunday lunch and a wander round Balham. This dress is a lovely trusty one to add instant brightness to an outfit and I love that I can wear it both with tights and bare legs - it's an all-year-rounder. Yay!

So that's it for the end of Week 4! Tune in next week for the last 6 days' outfits and some thoughts from both of us on Me Made May 2014.
