me made may 2017 | week 4

We made it through the month! Well....I kind of did. I skipped taking any photos the last weekend of the month. Did I cheat? Well, yes, kind of...pretty much. I wore a ready-to-wear jumpsuit. But, in my defense, it is really old - as most of my RTW clothes are - and I did add some very thin straps to it. I also wore me-made, self-drafted underpants one of those days, but I couldn't think of a tasteful way to get that photo in there. All that, combined with selfie-fatigue, led me to decide that it would be just fine to take the weekend off.

You'll also notice that there are a number of repeats. Considering I live on a tropical island, it's a rare occasion that my shirts are clean enough to wear a second time before washing. It's been on the cooler side lately though, so I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to not add to the laundry pile. 

Here's what I wore in week 4 + my special MMM18 hopeful at the end:
