Friends, it's been an epic May so far!
Wednesday, May 8:
A complete Colette outfit!
Top: Colette Jasmine
Skirt: Nautical Ginger Skirt
My Lizzie and I celebrated the warm weather by taking photos outside, which was rather enjoyable ... especially when Lizzie is shouting commands at me. POSE. SMILE. STAND UP STRAIGHT.
I can't keep my eyes open because I'm laughing so hard.
Thursday, May 9
Dress: Windy City Dress
Jacket: Shrug from Grandma's Pants
I decided to combine two rarely worn items and I rather like how they came together!
Laughing. So. Hard.
Posing because the photographer demanded it.
This dress. No photos exist because I was soaked through by the time I got home - whoops!
Friday, May 10
Skirt: The Annie Savoy Skirt
There is no explanation for this face other than it was incredibly cold and I would not put down the pashmina.
Friends, it has been an incredibly long time since I went out on a date. On Wednesday, I panicked and emailed the darling Michelle and begged for help on choosing what to wear. She advised me to be comfortable and wear something red. She suggested these two dresses: the Most Comfortable Dress Ever and the Love Story Dress.
I followed her guidance to a T. I made Simplicity 2369 with some leftover red polka dot knit in my stash.
It was a complete win.
This dress was perfect for drinks and dancing, and I do believe my date liked it as well :)

Pants: Burda 8488 Sailor Pants
Saturday night found me at a housewarming/birthday party in my favorite Sailor pants.
It also found me on the floor with my girlfriends singing Bohemian Rhapsody.
Sunday, May 12
LAUNDRY DAY WOOOOOO!
Bottoms: Cut off and many times repaired sweatpants
It ain't pretty, but it's practical for carrying laundry up and down the back stairs.
Monday, May 13
Sweater: Embellished cardigan
Pants: Simplicity 3688 (new)
Oh, look! Another pair of 3688 pants!
(and my bestie's knees. Hi Stephy!)
I love this pattern so much. I'm definitely seeing a plaid version happening in the somewhat near future.
Thirteen days in and no repeats yet! I'm hoping to complete the whole month with fresh outfits everyday, but we'll see how I'm feeling once the end of the month rolls around :)
Have a marvelous night, all!
