Project 333 has been going around for a while now. The idea is that you wear a combination of 33 items for 3 months.
There are variations to this idea with many people adopting their own rules but the general idea remains the same.
I’m intrigued by it, mostly due to feeling that I already encompass the 33 items (or close to) without trying too hard. So I’m keen to give it a go and see whether my view is accurate or not.
Once the painters have finished I want to do another clean out of my wardrobe and then I’ll be choosing 33 items of clothing to wear to work and on weekends for 3 months. Generally gym gear is not included in the list but I am going to include one outfit because it’s generally what I wear in my down time. I will not be including any type of formal wear so if I have a special event I’ll be using an item that is not part of the 33.
During this time I will also not purchase anything unless one of the items becomes unwearable during the time frame.
I hope this exercise serves as a way to really reiterate to myself that I don’t need multiple items of clothing because I don’t mind wearing the same thing over and again. I already have an unofficial uniform for work so obviously new pieces aren’t that pivotal to me.
I already have a list of items that I know I need in order to really round out my wardrobe but maybe this will help me either refine it or discover pieces that I need that are versatile but still already work with my current offerings. Before starting I know I would like a black leather jacket. I already have one but it’s very thin and suited for summer so I would like one that is warmer. Considering I usually wear jeans I think a black leather jacket would be a good piece to add.
I’m looking forward to this project. I’ll need to wait until after I have surgery and am back at work so I imagine I won’t start until about mid September. It’ll be an interesting time because I’ll need to consider the change in seasons.
