What I've Been Loving in May
On my birthday wearing my Marigold jumpsuit!

Hi pinups! I'm a little late this time sharing my post for my monthly 'What I've Been Loving...' series. But better late than never! May was such a busy month for me, but I still found time to find some sewing inspiration.

It was my birthday in May (27 yay!), and as I get older my style is certainly changing. I'm finding myself moving away from vintage styles and instead sewing more modern, simple styles. I'm trying to be more conscious of what I'm actually wearing compared to what I've been sewing since I started my blog 2 years ago and I think I'm finally finding a balance. Perhaps I'll write a blog post soon on changing style.... but for now, here's what I've been loving in May...

I don't know what's come over me and it's something I certainly never thought I'd say but I flipping love jumpsuits! I seen to be gravitating towards them at the moment and I've got more than one to share with you! I loved wearing my new Tilly and the Buttons Marigold jumpsuit for my birthday day out to Ludlow. Hello secret pjs! See my pattern review HERE.

Back to my earlier point about sewing items for my changing style, I desperately needed some plain items in my wardrobe. I love a simple jeans and t-shirt combo for casual days, and sewing jeans is not on my agenda, after browsing ASOS for skirts, I realised the styles I was looking at were patterns in my stash. I've started with another Tilly pattern, Miette, for a cute and comfy chambray wrap skirt featuring a tulip decorative stitch.

After pondering long and hard about it I finally caved and treated myself to a MacBook Pro. Probably the most money I've ever spent on anything. But so far, totally worth it!

Since moving in together, me and my boyfriend have fallen in love with furniture restoration and mid century interiors. We started a new venture Side Piece DIY to post snaps from our home and to share the projects we're working on. Follow us HERE!

Thanks for reading, pinups!
