MOAR CLOTHES! So many clothes. I have so many that I love that I really need to pass some less-favourite items on!
Folks, this is proof that Cone Mills is worth the price! I worried about spending $70 on fabric for one pair of jeans, but two years later, they still look immaculate. They have been worn, washed and dried many times!
May 8: Groove Dress from last fall, and the thrifted cardigan from last spring that inspired a million copies!
Yes, I am counting thrifted items in my MMMay – because I wear them a lot, and they deserve respect and love too! I got this royal blue cardigan last spring, and it quickly became my favourite. I’ve copied it at least 4 times now, including here and here.
May 9: MyImage Dress from 2016, and… yeah, that’s it.
I mean, if you are picky, I’m also wearing old leggings cut off as shorts, and me-made undergarments like always… but yeah, this outfit didn’t need any thing else! I actually got more compliments on this dress than anything else this month, which is interesting because it’s actually rather poorly fitting, and you can read about in the original post. I think turquoise and pink are my power colours though, so perhaps people notice the overall effect more than the details?
May 10: Cocoon Dress from this spring!
I LOVE this dress… but unfortunately one of the first times I wore it, I layered it under a wool knit kimono jacket. The wool fluff seemed to get embedded in the scuba, and now the scuba has started to pull in horizontal lines! I’m disappointed… but I still wore the dress! I had a thrifted black cardigan over it for most of the day, so I just hope no one noticed the wear!
It’s a bit of a stretch to combine this tank with the jacket, but enough of the colours match that it seemed worth a shot!
May 12: Ancient Ginger Jeans and a newish Cedar Top!
Hello, weekend! These Gingers are at least 3 or 4 years old, and the cheap denim has not held up well. Fine for a lazy weekend, though!
May 13: Isla Top from 2017 and a mysterious cat jumper!
The top is a favourite in fall and winter, and the bamboo has held up well over many wears. The jumper is a soon to be released pattern that I’m testing!
That’s it from me this week! The weather has been amazing, and the leaves are finally out. I’m wearing my giant (and growing) collection of Croc sandals every day, and life is good!
