Here it is, only day two of Me Made May and I'm thinking about the concept of our private dressing versus our public dressing. Ah, the private wardrobe idea....I wish it were as glamorous as those wonderful black and white thirties films when slipping into something comfortable meant satin mules and a silk charmeuse robe and gown. Yesterday I was feeling out of sorts, low grade fever and achy and stayed in my much rattier private clothes all morning. Luckily I didn't get worse (seems to be short term allergy more than a full blown cold) and I made myself get dressed in "public" clothes so that Mr. Lucky and I could run some errands together. Now that I am retired I spend large chunks of my day in "private" clothes....clothes I wear to walk the dogs, work in the gardens or do my own daily exercise. I end up scrubbing down, prettying up and changing before dinner and an evening social outing...book group, evening with friends, movie, etc. Sometimes I miss the lovely dress for success suits that I spent hours wearing each day, back when I had a huge wardrobe of public clothes. My wardrobe is still large by any standards in the world but far more sporty and casual. Even if my style has changed I still like putting together a mildly coordinated outfit when I do go public.
Enough random ramblings. Here are the outfits for days 1 and 2:

Day 2 and I'm wearing a silk jersey Simplicity 2364 top (you might get tired with how many versions you'll be seeing of this top) with my Lee jeans and these made by me earrings

Pics posted so now it's off to book group this evening. More to come tomorrow....
