Hey there! Two months ago I told you I was participating in Project 333 – a minimalist fashion experiment. I may have promised you monthly updates … I hope you’ll forgive me for missing the first one! I’ve been working on a BIG project and I’ve had to be intentional with how I spend my time, which has meant blogging a bit less than normal.
But rest assured – even though I wasn’t posting regularly, I have been sticking with the project. Keep reading for an update on my experience so far and a few outfit photos too!
PROJECT 333: 2 MONTH UPDATE
I actually started Project 333 with only 31 items (not 33). I left 2 spots empty because I need a few more cold weather pieces. (I live in a subtropical climate; it still gets cool in the winter … but I don’t like to admit it! Hence my very limited winter wardrobe.)
But – despite my best intentions – I didn’t buy anything new! I couldn’t find anything that really suited my style and I’ve been really busy writing, so I decided to try and make do with what I already have.
So of those 31 items:
- x 1 item damaged due to an olive oil spill …
- x 4 items not worn at all
- x 26 items worn
- x 7 of the worn items were only worn a few times
I ended up wearing the same 19 things over and over again – especially my brown boots and black skinny jeans. I’m not sure if this is what you want to hear – I know there are a lot of bloggers out there doing really incredible, creative Project333 wardrobes where they look like they are wearing completely different outfits every day! But this is the real me and I want to be honest with you.
I still care about looking good, but I’m actually really happy wearing the same thing over and over. After all – I’m always wearing my favourite things! I never feel uncomfortable and I feel confident in my own skin.
So with that in mind, here’s a little peak at my outfits from the last 2 months. I will probably mix things up a bit more as the weather gets warmer (it’s spring here now) but for now, I probably wear some version of the first and last photos most often.
This just shows that even with a tiny wardrobe, we still don’t wear everything we own!

So what do you think? Am I boring? (Haha!) Could you dress with a tiny wardrobe? If not, what are your biggest challenges? Let me know in the comments! x
