Me-Made-May 2016 Pledge

I cannot believe how fast this year is passing, nor how extremely slowly winter is disappearing - it's cold enough to still have the heating on and it's May already tomorrow! And with May comes Me-Made-May! Organised by Zoe of So, Zo every year, it is a month where you set yourself a challenge to do with wearing me-made clothing. It should be something that is personally challenging. It could be wearing a me-made item a few times a week, or solely me-made garments every day. It's up to you to decide.

I have been hesitating over whether to join in all the fun this year. I've taken part in a lot of these Me-Made-Mays over the years, I know I can go months just wearing my clothes. That in itself isn't extremely challenging although it means I have to give up my store-bought jeans (and the wearing of all my boyfriends clothes - his stuff all fits me - cardigans, jeans, everything!). I was thinking I can use this challenge as a chance to change how I feel in my clothes. Lately the weather has been so miserable and I have been in a rush to get out the door so I have worn some outfits that I don't totally love. I am generally a big fan of mismatched clothing but recently I haven't been doing it in a way that I find aesthetic... I would like to use this month to work on that, to really think about what I am wearing and plan things out because it makes me feel so much better about myself, more confident, when I wear an outfit I love.


'I, Jodi Wade of http://www.jodimade.com, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '16. I endeavour to wear only me-made clothing (excluding undergarments and hosiery) in outfits I consider to be nice each day for the duration of May 2016'


Also, this challenge is a great reason to finish some of the many half finished projects I have lying around everywhere, so I can have some variety in my wardrobe!
