Wait, week 3?? Where did that go? This past week I have been struggling a bit with the weather. I have never really had "spring" clothes, I just go straight from wearing tights and boots into summer dresses. This year, however, has shown me that I need a few things to help me transition from one season to another. Namely trousers for those days when I am too hot to wear tights but too cold to go bare legged. I did have another jersey maxi skirt which I was planning on wearing on day 15 but it got coffee on it and I realised it is not really opaque enough. I wore it with a slip last year but just couldn't be bothered so ended up in a pair of my Mum's old jeans which don't really fit that well but serve a purpose. I have cut out another pair of Ultimate Trousers and hope to have them finished this evening, ready to wear tomorrow. I have had the fabric for these for a few months now and they were next on my list anyway so I don't feel like I am panic sewing, but I am a bit! If the weather was better I would be in dresses and they would probably get put off until the autumn. Silver lining right there!
Day 15: Work day (nice warehouse background!) in my Marilla Walker Maya Pattern top. I love this top and cant wait to wear it with my new trousers. Second hand cardi and hand-me-down jeans.
Day 16: Home day in my dip dyed blouse using indigo (messy but fun!) and jersey maxi skirt
Day 17: Really busy day including ballet lesson (not me!) and a birthday party at a farm wearing my Ultimate Trousers and a Sorbetto. Child is in an Oliver and S Puppet Show top with Sunny Day shorts
Day 18: Work again, wearing my Marilla Walker Evan Skirt, a NewLook 6808 and a Marion cardigan knitted by my Mum (totally counts as me made!!)
Day 19: Mum's jeans again with another NewLook 6808 (which I prefer tucked in now) and an old cardi.
Day 20: I felt tired, and cold and miserable all day on Wednesday so I was obviously going for comfort here! Wearing my Françoise dress and Girl Friday cardi
Day 21: That pretty backdrop again! And those Ultimate Trousers and Bronte Top again!! Oh well, if it works....
I am now having quite a few repeats but other than feeling like I am writing the same thing over, and over again I am okay with that. I have said this before but I don't want a massive collection of clothes, I just want to have enough to wear in all weather conditions and this month has highlighted to me that I need more transitional clothes. How is May going for everyone else? Anyone else feeling like they are repeating themselves?!
