Me Made May 2021

I can’t believe I will be taking part in my third Me Made May this year! I have enjoyed taking part the last 2 years and feel like I want to try a new challenge this year. I have a blog posts rounding up my experience in 2020 and 2019.

This year I am going to kick the month off with a 10×10 challenge. If you haven’t heard of this before you take 10 garments, in this case including shoes, and only wear these garments for 10 days. Accessories won’t be included in my challenge but some people like to do this too.

The key to this is choosing 10 items that work in multiple outfits. Recently I have been reaching for a lot of the same garments so I am interested to know if I can complete the challenge.

Of course one of the biggest obstacles will also be the weather. I checked the weather and knew there was a lot of rain forecast over the 10 days so the first garment I picked was my Serra trench. After that I added in my white Veja trainers and built the rest of the wardrobe around that.

The other items I picked are:

  • Rose Tencel Jersey Tyra Tee
  • White Linen Viscose Crepe Olya shirt
  • Grey Jackson Sweater
  • Black Interstellar Hoodies
  • Blue Dawn Jeans
  • Black Luna Joggers
  • Ditsy Floral Crepe Sedavi Dress
  • Floral Victoria Dress

I have counted a total of 13 potential outfits from this selection so I hope I won’t run out of options!

I will be back with a round up of my outfits and my thoughts on this challenge.
