Me-Made-May 2018 |Navy Capsule Wardrobe (10×10 DIY Capsule No.2)

Today  I was listening to the Love to Sew podcast episode with Zoe Edwards, the creator of Me Made May. She was discussing about the philosophy of the movement and why it needs to be fun and useful, but also make you push yourself, it’s a challenge after all.

Well, after the first stint of my Me Made May 10×10 capsule wardrobe (read more here about the concept), documenting all the outfits on IG and choosing my second instalment, I am definitely feeling stretched.

Me-Made-May 2018 | The pledge and a new challenge

I have definitely left this Me-Made-May 2018 pledge to the very last minute. I’m in Chicago at the moment with work, speaking at a sustainability conference (sorry, just had to brag a bit) and it’s 6 PM here, but in the UK is already midnight and therefore already May.

It’s been a bit mad lately so I did not have the time to prepare and shoot for this post in time at home, but I did pack the lot with me, so took the pics in my hotel room in Chicago just now. I do feel a bit chuffed with my jet-setting ways, I must confess.

So, to make things official, here is my pledge.
