The first week of #Project333 went by a lot smoother than I expected. One of the first things I noticed was how much time I saved getting ready in the morning. I like to think that I’m a pretty low maintenance person, it takes me 30 minutes to get ready and I don’t wear makeup. One the first day of this fashion challenge, I must have shaved at least 10 minutes off of my morning routine. It was spectacular! Having less items in my wardrobe streamlined my approach to getting ready and I didn’t have to ponder about my outfit for the day.
This leads me to the second thing I noticed: my subconscious has created a uniform of pants, a nice shirt, and scarf. I find that wearing a scarf is as fashionable as it is functional. Not only do I look more put together, it keeps me warm in the midst of the cool, January breeze. What also amazed me was how many looks I was able to create with a limited wardrobe size. Of the 33 items I chose, I only wore 13 of the items. This doesn’t include my workout clothes and shoes (sidenote: I did exercise for at least 30 min everyday this week).
My triumphs for the first week of #Project333 was that I saved time getting ready and that I have a baseline uniform that looks stylish and is appropriate during a California winter (in both school and work settings). I am happy to say that I did not have any challenges with this challenge and I intend to keep it that way for the next 11 weeks! 🙂
