I know, I know. I left you at quite the cliffhanger on Monday. You’ve just been dying to read about what I’ll be wearing for the next three months, haven’t you?
Well, I’ve made my list. And you know what? It wasn’t so difficult. I mean, I had to pare down my earring selection and come to terms with the fact that I just don’t wear many skirts, but in the end the list came together quite nicely. It really helps that the official rules exclude sleepwear, in-home loungewear, undergarments, and sportswear. And I’m leaving out outerwear, too. (I know, way to kill it.) I was going to draw you a pretty picture, but then I got overwhelmed and decided to let you imagine my wardrobe in your head. Good luck with that.
So here’s what I’ve got:
- 3 pairs of earrings (pearl studs, gold feathers, and a pair I call “mosaic”)
- 1 “statement necklace” (a black stone necklace I got when I went to semiformal in 9th grade)
- 2 scarves (a silver-and-white striped one and a bright blue embroidered one)
- 2 pairs jeans (skinny and bootcut)
- 3 pairs pants (white jeans, black jeans, khakis)
- 1 skirt (denim)
- 2 dresses (one yellow print from Old Navy and one cheapish LBD I bought from TJ Maxx)
- 2 jackets (greyish boy jacket and grey cardigan)
- 4 shirts/sweaters (white button-down, white silk button-down, black turtleneck, chambray button-down)
- 8 tees/knits (white long sleeve tee, black long sleeve tee, striped long sleeve tee, turquoise long sleeve tee, black short sleeve tee, white short sleeve tee, grey long sleeve henley)
- 5 pairs shoes (brown riding boots, black flats, red flats, brown pennyloafers, casual brown heels)
I honestly don’t know how this will hold me through. I mean, I think it will be fine. But we’ll just have to see! I don’t know how quickly it will warm up here, so I added the short sleeve t-shirts in as contingency. But I may have to swap out some things. But wouldn’t that defeat the whole purpose of Project 333? Well.
You may or may not have noticed the relative…monotone of my wardrobe. I only recently realized this problem. I’ve been working so hard for the last year or so to fill my wardrobe with the pieces I deem “essential” that I’ve let spontaneity and color completely slip through the cracks. But why should I let it bother me? I’ve got a few punches of color in there, and someday I will be satisfied that I’ve collected enough basics and move on to adding in fun, colorful pieces.
But until that day I’ll keep on keepin’ on with Project 333, no matter how black, white, and khaki I look.
