Me Made May 2016- Days 1-10

Me Made May 2016- Days 1-10

Take a look at what I’ve been wearing so far for Me Made May 2016.   This year is a bit trickier for me as I need to plan most of my looks in advance. We’re still not moved completely over to the other coast (a suburb of Ft. Lauderdale).  I’m at my parent’s home with the kids in Estero Sunday night through Friday afternoon for Nigel’s school and back in Plantation to spend time with my husband Friday evening until Sunday afternoon.  Lots of back and forth travel requires much more forethought.  I can’t wait for June when we’ll be home for good!

Though I wear handmade  most days and have very few RTW clothes I still look forward to MMM each year.  It helps to review what I’ve made, see what needs mending, and find new ways to mix my clothes. I love it for keeping a visual diary of what I wore most.
