Belated MMM round-up!

My goodness, hasn't it been a while? I've had quite a bit going on in my life in the last few months, but as soon as it all settles down I'll be able to update you with all my news. Before then, I feel obliged to upload some snaps from my first participation at MMM :)

I should declare now that although I managed to hit my target of wearing me-made clothes for at least 3 times a week with relative ease, I did not religiously photograph myself so there were quite a few days/outfits missing. But here are the ones that I did take: 

Let's kick off with the jolly holiday pictures - we spent just over a week in Mauritius (it turned out to be a much needed holiday, after a few stressful issues lately), and it was fabulous! 



In contrast, at the beginning of the month, I got a lot of wear out of my Navy Wool Coat, since it was still pretty cold in the UK. 

Then there were a few work outfits: 


Also my Geometric vintage blouse, my red Lottie blouseModest raspberry dress and old favourite dress had at least a feature each this month as part of a work outfit.  
Then we have some more relaxed times, including dress-down Fridays as well as weekends/evenings. 

Overall I'm pretty happy with how my first MMM went, and would be keen to participate again in the coming years! Now I'm going to head to the blogsphere and check out everyone else's selfies ;) Before I go though, let me leave you with one of my favourite snaps from the vacation, which was taken from a sun lounger by the infinity pool at the hotel:


Until next time, stay well and keep sewing!

    1. It really is, and the people were so friendly, too! It was quite a long way to travel but so worth it when we got there. A bonus for the MMM photos too ;)

  2. Wow looks like an amazing holiday! I hope the stressful issues are all sorted out now. Well done on completing MMMay. My pledge was 3 days a week too, and like you I did it but isn't get pics every day. I love your me-makes!

  3. That looks like the most wonderful place to relax!

    Like you, I did not relish in taking photos of myself in my me-made clothes. I started off with energy and quickly ran out. I do think the photos you did snap are lovely.

    1. Oh it was! I miss it already.

      I did struggle with the selfies... some days I set it on a timer, and others in front of a mirror at home/at a hotel when I was travelling for work. Finding the time/daylight was also an issue, so I tried not to stress about it too much :)
