I’m plumping for Sundays for my #MMM14 weekly roundups – easier to find the time to put the post together! I thought I’d jot down some extra notes about what I did each day and how I felt in the outfit (specifically the handmade bit of it): its practicality, comfort and style factor. So here are my outfits for the four days this week:
Me-made: Black twill trousers (not blogged yet)
Other: H&M tee, ASOS shoes, belt and necklace unknown (Not pictured: Anthropologie soft biker, ASOS bag)
Comments: love the colours and silhouette here, but it ended up entirely inappropriate for the non-stop rainy weather. I had an early meeting for a new freelance gig (which I got!) and confess I changed when I got home as I was soaked and cold. The pants are another successful pair of Burda 7017s which I’ll blog about soon.
Me-made: Polka dot skinny jeans
Other: Primark tee, Anthropologie soft biker, ASOS bag, Cos necklace
Comments: Felt pretty good and comfortable in this; I went to a meeting and food shopping, then got rained on again. Need to make more tops like this to ease my Primark jersey tee habit.
Me-made: Zippy top, wool jersey cardigan
Other: Gap jeans, ASOS loafers, Datter necklace
Comments: Pretty much a usual/ideal day outfit for me. I had a bit of a walk and did a hand-lettering class in a nearby art shop. Then came home and sewed :) The top is a See Kate Sew Zippy top, which I’ve basically been making a billion of lately: I have a roundup post with more details coming soon.
Me-made: Viscose jersey (non)Zippy Top
Other: H&M lounge pants, Cos necklane
Comments: Home day: sewing, blogging and catching up with work. Might throw on some real trousers and take a walk in a bit. The tee is another Zippy – told you I was into this pattern lately. My sister bought me the pants saying ‘I know you could make these, but thought you’d like them’. I do!
This has been fun so far and is going well, bring on next week…
