Just a little catch up on my first week of Me Made May 2015.
Last weekend my OH and I whisked off to a lovely hotel, The Raithwhaite Estate, for some ‘quality’ time. We had stayed there for our 2 night ‘mini moon’ last year. Located on the Yorkshire coast between Whitby and Sandsend it’s just under a two hour drive away so not too far, just far enough.
It’s quite a smart place which gave me a couple of easy opportunities to dress in my me-mades for diner.
But first I wore my pink stretch cotton Burda 7051 to whizz around a few errands.
The first night saw my inaugural wear of my grey Burdastyle cowl neck dress
And yes, that is a rather large glass of red wine. I look a little pink but that is the lighting, not the wine….at this point.
Sunday saw in some stormy weather but as the day moved on the rain stopped enough to walk the beach and cliff walk into Whitby.
Amazingly after this, the sun came out so I didn’t feel too daft wearing my Burda 7557 summer dress. I do seem to be a bit of a Burda fan.
Remarkably the sun was out the following morning as we packed to make our way back home. I was able to wear my Maria Denmark day to night drape top.
Tuesday was cold. Back at work I wore shop bought rtw. Yesterday I had to go in suited.
But today, with no meetings penciled in, I went a bit more casual in my True Bias Sutton Blouse. One of my favourite things ever.
So a successful first Me Made May week. I’m pleased that I seem to have made some pretty wearable stuff that I enjoy wearing.
However, it’s all downhill from now. I’ve a few more tops which will see the light of day but then it’ll be a series of repeats. I’ll just have to be a bit ingenious with my styling!
Love, Lucie xx
