You know how people are saying that narrowing your wardrobe to minimum let them discover what they truly love and liberated them from the tyranny of overflowing closets? I so wanted to be one of those people. I wanted to feel free from my shopping obsessions and satisfied with a few perfectly fitting, carefully selected garments.
|Well, I am bored!!!|
Yes, I know I can create more cute outfits from what I currently have in my Project 333 closet. Yes, everything fits me, everything is my style and I love every individuaal piece. But still, I am sick of wearing the same things over and over (OK, so it was maybe 3-5 times each, but it feels like more).
On the top of that, we have an unusually warm weather here in New Jersey and I didn't take that into account. I cannot wear my wool pants, skirts and cashmere sweaters. As a result, I am stuck with about 15 weather appropriate garments in total. I don't feel liberated. I feel silly wearing the same boring outfits, when so many more appropriate choices hung abandoned in my other closets. Thank God I did not commit myself to 3 pairs of shoes or I would go nuts after 2 weeks (I have been doing it since January 1st).
I know nobody is forcing me to continue, but I am stubborn and I just cannot give up without feeling defeated. So I will stick with it until March 31st, boredom be damned. (I know, that's even more silly).
So here we go, this is what I've been wearing recently:
Brora skirt, J.Crew perfect fit tee, Bandolino shoes
You have seen this Brora skirt with petrol blue lace trim thermal HERE, and this is very similar but a bit more appropriate for the warmer weather that we are enjoying.
Btw, it is not in our imagination. Did you know that the February 2012 was the warmest February on record in NJ (that is in last 118 years!)? I don't mind it at all :)
|Love those elbow snap perfect fit tees!|
|Cheap substitute for navy Valentinas|
J.Crew capris, lace panel tee and black blazer, Repetto flats and Banana Republic bag
You have seen the pants HERE and Lace tee HERE, Repettos HERE.
|Pop of Red never fails for me|
|It got too hot for the blazer|
You have previously seen the skirt HERE and HERE and shoes HERE.
I noticed this awfully visible t-shirt hemline, so I have tucked it into the pantyhose. Yes I do wear pantyhose. It is useful for hiding hemlines and general smoothing out. No, it does not bother me at all.
|I usually get untucked by the afternoon|
Talbots shoes, necklace Banana Republic, everything else J.Crew
You have seen the skirt HERE and I have previously styled the blouse with trousers HERE, this is how it looks tucked into a pencil skirt.
|Is this too much yellow?|
J.Crew shirt, belt and bracelet. Peoples Liberation jeans and Bandolino shoes
You have seen the shirt HERE and HERE and jeans HERE.
|Love this Liberty shirt!|
|New bracelet, I don't see it online|
|That's all folks!|
