Project 333: Year 3 / Phase 2


I decided to do another update with my current Project 333 wardrobe and personal modifications to the project "rules".

If you happened to read my last post, you know I have modified the way I practice Project 333 to accommodate the fact that I now wear a uniform to work. Having a true uniform has taken some getting used to but I do enjoy the fact that it makes getting dressed each day so much easier as I have limited variables as to what to wear. 

For this phase of the project, April-June 2016, I have made various adjustments, some new and some continuing from past phases:
  • I was keeping all of my clothes (winter and summer) out at all times, but beginning in April I did pack away some heavier winter items.
  • I counted my work uniform (all of my logo tops and khaki bottoms) as one of my 33 items. I did the same with scarves, shoes, and jewelry.
  • I'm not counting my sunglasses, purse, sleepwear, workout gear, or rain gear.
Given all that, I end up with 24 items. Less than 33, but four of the items are actually "groups" so I have more than 33 items of clothing in rotation overall. After three years of living with a capsule wardrobe, I no longer think in terms of number of items. Instead, I just keep the clothes that I wear that look good and are comfortable and functional.

Here are my items for this phase:
