project 333: Spring 2014

Standard

In life, I want to continuously question my habits of unnecessary consumption.  By consciously limiting my wardrobe, I am becoming more aware of the juxtaposition of needs and wants – it is eye-opening to see how that dynamic is played out in my closet.  For this project I am choosing to follow the guidelines of Project 333, the main purpose of which is to have a complete wardrobe consisting of only 33 items for a period of three months.  You can learn more about Project 333 here.

Project 333 - Spring 2014
My wardrobe is the smallest it has ever been.  While i haven’t been buying very much in the clothing department this past year, I have been lucky enough to attend a couple of awesome clothing swaps which have helped supplement my capsule wardrobe.  It is a blast to spend an afternoon swapping clothes with friends over a glass of wine.  Swapping instead of shopping is addictive once you get started!

Here’s what’s in my capsule wardrobe for the next three months:
11 shirts
3 pair of pants
3 leggings
3 skirts
2 dresses
1 sweater
2 coats
2 scarves
6 pair of boots / shoes
Currently obsessed with these boots currently

How did I end up with so many shoes?   I do find that the better selection of shoes I have, the easier it is to have a very simple wardrobe – changing my shoes makes dressing up or dressing down an outfit so simple!  With the exception of two workout outfits, one pair of pyjamas, some socks and undergarments, these are all the clothes I currently own.  I do also have quite the scarf and shoe collections going currently, and will be hanging onto those items and swapping things out as seasons change.

Are you participating in Project 333 this go round?  It is very freeing to have such a small wardrobe, I highly recommend it!
