My Me-Made-May ’13 Pledge

Being a part of Me-Made-May is a lot of fun and I’ve been wanting to join since it was announced. Participants are encouraged to phrase the pledge themselves, in a way to make it more challenging every time. This is the reason why I’ve been hesitant, since my wardorbe is limited at the moment due to breast-feeding and not having gotten my pre-pregnancy body quite back yet.

But, as Zoe pointed out, sometimes the challenge is not about wearing more me-mades than the previous round, sometimes life gives you a challenge in itself (her “life’s challenge” is being pregnant). So perhaps I should reduce my number of me-mades, as it is challenging enough just to dress.

Further on, I also thought that I should use this opportunity to focus on the things I want to change about my personal style, which is to focus on thrifting and getting out of that sweat-pants trap I’ve fallen into.

 ‘I, Helena of Crafting My Own Style, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’13. I endeavour to wear one me-made garment for at least 16 days of May 2013. For the remaining days, me-made is encouraged by myself and I will also focus on the thrifted clothes of my wardrobe. As an added, personal pledge, I also endeavour NOT to wear sweat pants at all during May 2013. ‘

I will post my me-made outfits to the Flickr group and all outfits will be posted here.

Wish me luck, with my currently larger waist/hip this seems like a real challenge, but I want in on the fun this year as well.

  1. are you getting on well with the new arrival? (whose not quite so brand new anymore!)
    great approach to the month – i think your sweatpant rule is the equivalent of my no more clothes on the floor 😉

    • Things are going quite well, except her lack of sleep during the nights.

      I like that people have been very creative with their MMM pledges this year and it’s quite fun to see what others will come up with.
