Me-Made-May 2020

Week 1

This was the second year I participated in Me-Made-May and I had even more fun than the first year. Why you ask? I had so many more me-made garments to choose from this year and they were pieces that fit my personal style better. However, because I was working from home, I found that I wasn't wearing as many business or business casual garments as I did when I worked in a more traditional office setting.

Week 2

Focusing on wearing me-made, me-mended, and me-tailored items was a refreshing change of pace in my work from home wardrobe, which had admittedly become mostly active wear. I told myself I would work out each day and therefore needed to wear active wear, but in reality that only happened a handful of times in April. Putting on a nice blouse or dress each morning in May helped me focus on work and certainly looked better in all those video calls.

Week 3

What I love about Me-Made-May, in addition to the alliteration which makes my advertising heart beat, is the Midwest variety of weather - giving me opportunity to wear almost all types of garments I've made.
