May 22: There was another total record failure. I cannot recall what I wore and there are no photos to help me out now. So....one of my dresses, but that is all I know for sure.
|May 23: After a slow day at the office Matt's mom cooked me a special, belated birthday dinner.|
|May 25: I wore the Blue Floral With a Ruffle with a thick blue sweater over top and blue leggings. It was a mellow day--work, cycling, and puttering around the house.|
May 28 : At the last minute we decided to stay home over the long Memorial Day weekend. Matt had tie-dye to work on. The housework and garden had fallen a little behind. So, on Saturday I slipped on the ubber-comfy Tie-Dye T-Shirt Dress (with a black base layer) and spent the day puttering around the house taking care of business. I failed to take a photo though.
|May 29: I wore The Coordinated Dress, topped with the same blue sweater from May 25th. The sweater is a really nice one which I luckily snagged at a clothes swaps years ago. Matt continued to work on tie-dye for some quickly approaching gigs. I taught myself how to brew beer since Matt hadn't had time to do so lately and we were all out. I've helped him bottle in the past, but I've had very little hands on experience with the actual brew day activities.|
|May 31: It was hard to believe it was the end of the month, but all of the sudden I was picking out my last dress for Me Made May. The Blue Floral and Brown Wool Dress got the honors for the final day of the challenge. I ended up leaving work early as my shoulder was really bothering me and making typing and deskwork a drag. After cycling home (which was interesting) I spent the afternoon on the sofa with a book and a cat.|
I will not attempt to take a photo every day again. I am not sure it added much, at least from my end, and I just kept forgetting about it. I am alright with that though. I'm just not much of the "selfie" type, I guess. Maybe with a group of friends sharing a super fun experience, but not just me standing around in a dress on a fairly ordinary Wednesday.
In reflecting on MMM '16 I've already put some thought into what challenge I might set myself for next year. I am thinking of focusing on the act of daily sew in lieu of a what-to-wear challenge, which have been rather easy for me each year. I think a task oriented challenge would be more, well, challenging.
