[Style Search]: Week 4 Styling the Mabel


Hi All!

So after a lot more pacing in my room, trying on what felt like everything I owned, and a little more laying on my floor staring at my ceiling, I managed to make 10 outfits that I love!!

I have to say that once you get into it, and you get a little more familiar with all of your clothes, it gets easier 🙂

In case you’re just reading this week all my outfits are being styled with my Mabel skirts from Colette

Me Made May Week 3 Round Up!


Hi All!!

Week 3 of Me-Made-May, and it was quite a spectacular week if I do say so myself!!

DAY 16
This was a day for lovely morning with my favourite summer pjs!! I wore my cute pj set that I made from the Sorbetto top pattern and bloomer bottoms that were a modified pattern taken from RTW.

 

DAY 17
This was my day of being a bombshell goddess! After taking the photos for this suit for Week 18 of Bra-A-Week, I stayed in it for a while, just lounging with the gorgeous weather!

 

It’s like picking a favourite child, but I think this might be my favourite swim suit so far!

 

DAY 18 
It was another glorious day in Ontario and I thought I would do a little sun bathing mermaid style!  (in the shade as a responsible pale person does- although it looks like Gibby got a little sun in his eyes!)

 

 

DAY 19

 

This was my day to wear some home-made jewelry, I love the super indie feel of this necklace, fun and delicate 🙂

 

 

DAY 20

 

This was a day for lots of computer work, which means home-made sweat pants all the way!

 

DAY 21
I thought I would highlight one of my most used hand-made items- and that is this laptop case that my mom made me! It has a super handy pocket on the front for papers and my planner and I love the nautical feel 🙂

 

 

DAY 22

 

My indie pattern make of the week! I know I was supposed to branch out and try new patterns but I saw this pattern hack for the Nettie over at Closet Case Files on making an off-the-shoulder Nettie and I knew I needed one in a crop-top version! I love it!!

 

 

The post on this top is coming tomorrow!!
Yay! I’ve been loving this Me Made May! It reminds me of how much work I’ve done this year, how many beautiful things I’ve made, and how lucky I am to be doing all of this 🙂
How is your MMMay 2015?

Me Made May: Week 2 Round Up!


Hi All!
Here is my Week 2 round-up for Me Made May!
DAY 9
On day 9 I wore these cute little nautical shorts! Recognize the fabric?

Another fun afternoon at the beach!

with the puppy of course 🙂 he’s a very curious puppy!

DAY 10
A day in Hamilton with mom and the pup! I wore my Islander Jacket Express! I love this jacket!
DAY 11 
A hiking day with mom and the pup where I used my trusty old back pack!

This was at the Beamer trail in Grimsby- the same one I visited this fall! The pup loved it!

 

DAY 12

On day 12 I wore this cute charm bracelet that I made last year- it’s my sea-charms bracelet with all the cool blues and silver 🙂 It’s also the day that all of our lilacs bloomed!

 

DAY 13

On Day 13 I wore my favourite bra- which bra is my favourite you may ask- well it’s this lace ivory bra from Week 7. It’s strange, I didn’t even make this one with myself in mind originally- I made this for a bridal lingerie feel for a photoshoot with my boudoir photographer friend- but it ended up being my go-to bra.

 

DAY 14

On Day 14 we had a bit of a cold snap- and it was into these cosy PJs my mom made for me from a vintage pattern!

Convincing the Gibby that my sleep mask is not his new toy.

🙂 🙂

DAY 15

And the exciting final day where I have a new indie pattern make! And I’m wearing last week’s indie pattern make in this photo too! But this week is all about this top- which is actually a body suit- the very popular Nettie from Closet Case Files!

I chose to do the high neck, 3/4 sleeves and low back version out of this beautiful stretch navy fabric!

 

I love it!! And I’m going to be doing a full post on this tomorrow!How are you all enjoying your Me Made May?

What was your pledge?

Happy Friday 🙂

Me Made May: Week 1 Round-Up


Hi All!

Some of you might have noticed the little Me-Made-May 2015 badge over on my side bar meaning that I’m participating in Me-Made-May this year!! I did it last year and I totally loved it- so I thought that I would do it again!

My pledge this year is pretty similar to last year and it includes:

1. Wearing a different me-made item every day of May
2. Posting weekly round up- pictures on all the Fridays
3. Including all of the bras that I’ve made in my challenge! 🙂
And the most exciting of them all!!……..
4. Every Friday (except the first that I missed, oooops) I’m going to wear an item that I made from a new indie pattern!  

 

So here we go!! Here are the first 8 days of May!!

 

DAY 1
 
This fun little number is my bra from Week 11 of my Bra-A-Week Challenge! Yay for mirror selfies!

 

DAY 2 

 

I made this top last year, copying it off of a cheap tank-top I bought at the mall!

I like that it’s a high-low style, and goes well with the gold zippers on my pants.

DAY 3
On Day 3 I wore my Spring Bralette from Week 9!! It was so nice outside!
And I wore it under this lace-isn sheer top, so you could see all the colours showing through and the double strap on the shoulder!

 

DAY 4
A beach day!! and I wore this really pretty red, green and gold flower bracelet that I made 🙂 I love spring fashion!!

 

DAY 5
This was an on-the-go day! and I needed my handy, holds-everything, green bag- that is still chic enough for meetings!

 

Mom actually made me this bag a few years ago!

 

 

DAY 6
On day 6 I was feeling like wearing some pretty high-waisted underwear 🙂 These ones from my Coral Set from Week 1!!

 

 

DAY 7
Was a day for being around the house- and a hot day around the house! So I thought I’d just wear one of my bralettes 🙂 they are staples- this is my Canadian Winter Bralette from Week 3!

 

 

Me working away at my laptop in the summer-like heat!

 

DAY 8
And here I have my final day of the week round-up and my new indie pattern make of this week!! These are the Alexandria Peg Trousers from Named Clothing– and I’m absolutely in love with them! I’m just loving indie patterns right now! And this is the push I need to make some!

 

 

Perfect for a day at the beach! I’m going to be doing a post on the making of these tomorrow, and put up a pattern review as well! <3
