How is every one’s Me Made May going? Are you participating? What are you learning so far?
My first week went reasonably well. I mean, I managed to get dressed in the mornings and take pictures, so I consider that a success. I find that participating definitely takes some planning on my part, by that what I really mean is the first week taught me that I have to plan a little better. For example, I really should finish doing my laundry and have the clothes pressed and hanging in my closet. Running around in the morning trying to think what I should wear, then ironing it and taking photos is too much. I am notorious for doing laundry and then throwing clean clothes in the baskets to iron later. Later rarely happens, and if it does, it is only when I really need it to happen.
I am a little late with the round up of my daily outfits for the first week of Me Made May, but here they are.
I have started Me Made May with taking photos in my new photo space, but I have really been feeling the pull to take photos outside. So I have been pushing myself to do it, and Me Made May provides a great opportunity to start doing it.
I was, and still am, feeling super self conscious and insecure about taking photos in public spaces, and my way of dealing with it is to make jokes and poke fun at myself. So little write ups of my thoughts and feelings, which started off as a way to cheer me up and loosen myself for photos, inadvertently became a daily occurrence on my Instagram. It makes me so happy that other people find my silly jokes funny! So I think I have to continue it for the rest of the month. I have no idea how I will do it… but I will try!
Until next time,
All your outfits looks great – I love how MMM shows us each other’s wardrobe as the happen in real life!
Thank you! I really enjoy it too. It so nice to see how everyone puts outfits together and what they are wearing 🙂
Anya, I love that you’re so honest about the insecurities of taking blog photos by yourself 😑… I (and probably every other sewing blogger) totally understand where you’re coming from! I usually have John take photos of me around town, and people gawk no matter what, but I think it’s easier (at least for me) when it’s complete strangers that are gawking and not people you don’t know well but have to see every day. And yet still, mirror selfies are like my worst enemy.
Anyway, yout insecurity doesn’t show in your photos… you look great and confident in all of them!
Thank you! I really want to be honest about it. I tend to get carried away in other people’s photos and social media thinking that their lives are perfect and easy. So I really don’t want my pictures to come across that way. And speaking about insecurities is a way to do it 🙂 We all feel them!
I agree, it is easier when you have someone with you and its complete strangers looking, rather than neighbours! I am still waiting for a time when Shaun or my mom can come with me on my outings. I also agree with mirror selfies, I can not take a good one for the life of me! And every single one I take I feel so silly taking!
Thank you so much!!
