Me-Made-May: Day 20

I am really enjoying Me-Made-May and seeing what all the other Me-Made-Mayers are wearing!

I put on an outfit today that I thought was a little boring but when I came out of the bathroom my flatmate said it was sexy so that kind of changed my opinion of it. I feel like a sexy secretary!



I went to the market with my basket, feeling ridiculously overdressed. This felt like playing dress-up - fun at home but not quite the same outside.


That's my plaid blazer (Steffi from BurdaStyle), new black skirt (Marie from BurdaStyle), and white eyelet blouse (Burda 7831). I made that basket liner too and the colours match my outfit for once :)

So, I am at the market, buying my bananas and apples and everything and my favourite stall holder gave me his phone number! And then a random person complimented my Hungarian! I am going to start dressing like this all the time!! I don't care any more if I can't walk properly in this skirt - it's worth it!

  4. ha ha! what a wonderful compliment. your post made me laugh.

    i made the marie skirt earlier this year and it took some growing on me (not to mention the restricted walking), but i'm staring to really like it.

    and i hear you on feeling overdressed and have been thinking about it myself -- how to balance the desire to sport nice clothes and yet not stick out like a sore thumb? and should we care? i admire your confidence!
