Me-Made-May 13 – week 4: The Portuguese edition!

29 May

This post covers the me made items packed in my suitcase between May 20th and 28th!

I’ve been in Portugal taking some relaxation time!


Back to reality with a bump. I landed in the UK Tuesday and I was back in work yesterday.

Although it’s a short work week for me I have plenty planned so thought I better get my me mades onto the blog sharpish!

Day 20: I flew in my green bias stripe top. Not pictured as it was 7am and I was a wee bit sleepy.


Day 21. This dress will now be called the “when are you due?” dress after a ludicrous man asked me this twice when I wore it out. To be fair I had just eaten three courses… but still! He then turned to the barman and said “That’s what we call a ‘gaffe’ in England”.


Day 23: This is the first dress I ever made. Its got terrible construction compared to recent makes but I love it. Lovely colours and mystical optical illusions going on to make my waist look so small.


Day 27: This is my nautical-inspired braided headband. I keep meaning to do a tutorial for this one. Its jaunty and I love it.


Day 28: my heading home outfit. Arrrgh I have to wear jeans again!!

Just five items and a few repeats here I’m afraid. Why the hell haven’t I made more sundresses?! If I had made a beach cover-up I’d be owning it this week. Only a few more days of May to go!!

I’ll leave you with some more holiday pics.
