Whew… what a week! I am finally doing a round up of my third week of Me Made May.
I apologize for disappearing from the blogosphere for a bit. I was wondering if and what I should share, but my goal with my blog is to be honest and real. Last week my family got heartbreaking news that my dear uncle passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. My family is grieving and we are slowly coming to terms with reality. Granted, my Me Made May and social media life was put on hold. However, I am slowly starting to get back into it. There will always be harsh and trying events in life. To me, it is not about overcoming them, but rather allowing yourself to fully immerse into feelings and emotions and letting them make your heart bigger and capable of more love and kindness. After all, there is so much goodness and happiness in life as well. There can’t be darkness without light. I will miss my uncle so much, but I also know that memories and stories will always be with us and will be passed on with love and admiration. That is how one truly stays immortal.
On that note, I will just jump straight into my Me Made May outfits. You will notice that some days are missing since I didn’t snap pictures, but those days I lived in my Hudsons Pants (un-blogged) and Lark T-shirts. They both are so comfortable!
Day 16: this morning I turned my alarm off and proceeded to sleep 😧 so I was late but I managed to get ready pretty fast and even snap pictures. I'm giving my brand new pair of #hampshiretrousers a go. This one is made with all the alterations from me first wearable muslin and I'm in love. I added a 3/4 sleeve #larktee that was still unworn. Very similar outfit to the Saturday but I am so in love with it! #mmmay16 #memademay #isew #califayecollection #grainlinestudio
Day 18: I got up early enough to take pictures! This dress is fresh off the sewing machine. It is a hack of a #larktee made out of super soft and comfy bamboo cotton knit from #blackbirdfabrics. The dress was welcomed by a "oh! That's a nice night gown!" from the boyfriend this morning, but what does he know… 😉 #memademay #mmmay16 #isew #grainlinestudio
Day 19: pictures were not going well this morning and most of them turned out with me looking creepy and uncomfortable 😄 it's a little chilly today! I'm wearing my #hudsonpants made out of stretch twill and #eucalypttank made from poly blend. I also changed into flats as soon as I got to work. It's one of those days! #mmmay16 #memademay #truebias #megannielsenpatterns
