Me-Made-May 2016, Ready & waiting

Me-Made-May: Week 2

I’m not the kind of person who stands in front of the wardrobe in the morning for ages, trying to figure out what to wear. I usually find a few pieces that I really enjoy wearing and stick with them for as long as the season allows me.

However, having to choose from a very different set of clothes this month makes me totally clueless some mornings, and whenever the weather gets unexpectedly cold and rainy, like this past week, or when I need to dress for a special occasion (going out, travelling, etc), I find myself really challenged to get dressed without being absurdly late for work.

I have spent the weekend in Paris with my sister, where the weather was supposed to be 15 °C degrees, mostly cloudy with some sunshine. Otherwise known as that time you are unsure whether you’ll be boiling after walking a few minutes if you put on too many layers, or you’ll wish you took your winter coat. I am really embracing spring right now and feel like wearing bright colours all the time, so I decided to keep it simple and wear my favourite red trousers for the whole weekend. They are comfy, surprisingly versatile and I managed to dress them up for a night out too. So apart from wearing the aforementioned red pants for what feels like eternity, this is what I wore last week.

We had a parents’ evening that day, the weather was really unpredictable, so I chose to go with pieces that worked earlier that week.

    In love with that white Burda shirt ❤ ❤ and your red trousers are amazing!!
    I always find it harder to get dressed in Spring and Fall. Armidale is exactly like you described – freezing cold one minute and boiling the next!

    Ps: those shoes!!! :O

    • Thank you! I think I am beginning to like that shirt more and more every time I wear it! 🙂 So I assume the weather is turning colder on your side of the globe now? Autumn-winter sewing is the best, as long as you enjoy working with wools and all!
