Revised list

I am revising my list a bit. After sleeping on it overnight I know that I will not use the scarf or the belt. So I am going to swap those things out for another pair of casual shoes and a t-shirt. I am also going to switch out the red and brown skirt for a plain brown skirt. Everything else will stay the same. I am now off to my closet to make those changes and to get the rest of my shoes packed away. My 3 months will begin on Monday, Oct. 11. (Just in case I need to do a little more tweeking before I start.)

This is my closet now that I have eliminated everything that is not part of Project 333.
In the small drawers are my undergarments and my socks. 
 You can see my 3 pair of shoes in the cubbies.  The tennis shoes I only wear to work. 
 These are my clothes for non work hours. I can get everything hung up on hangers and still have room.

 These are my scrubs for work.  I did eliminate about 6 tops that were summery and my white pants.  I don't need those going into winter in Pennsylvania.
 On the shelves, the top left are my casual tops, on the left are my work t-shirts that I can wear with my scrubs.  Those I am not counting in my 33 items.  On the bottom shelf on the left are my yoga workout cloths along with bicycle shorts.  I don't know that I will need them but since they don't count and we still might get some nice days this fall to ride, I didn't want to miss out on the chance. To the right on the bottom shelf are my jammies.  On the floor are my casual boots and my dressy boots.
These are my long hanging items.  One dress, one skirt and a sweater set-dressy for Christmas.

My 33 items

I went through my closet and selected my 33 items for Project 333.  Here it is:

  1.  Black heels
  2.  Brown ankle dress boots
  3.  Black suede casual boots
  4.  Purple dress coat
  5.  "Kate" blue jeans
  6.  Bandolinoblue jeans
  7.  Khaki dressy jeans
  8.  Black/white print dress
  9.  Brown paisley skirt
10.  Red and brown skirt
11.  Black pinstripe dress slacks
12.  Tan pinstripe dress slacks
13.  Gray slacks
14.  Yellow blouse
15.  White blouse
16.  Blue blouse
17.  Pink wrap sweater
18.  Cream front tie sweater
19.  Black button sweater
20.  Pink "Navy" sweatshirt
21.  Beige beaded tank top
22.  Brown tank
23.  Coral mock-turtleneck sleeveless top
24.  Purple mock-turtleneck sleeveless top
25.  Pink sleeveless knit top
26.  Black Coach purse
27.  Purple suede gloves
28.  Orange Boucle jacket
29.  Black/blue/beige jacket
30.  Black/gold/blue glass necklace and earrings
31.  Shell necklace and earrings
32.  Turquoise and rusty orange skinny scarf
33.  ?????  I will add my brown belt but I usually don't wear a belt.  Maybe that will get changed out.

I do work in a medical facility and have to wear scrubs to work and special t-shirts that are for different events, ex. Hope T-shirt for any number of cancer benefits, like Relay for Life,  so I did not count those things in my 33 items.  I do not wear them outside of work.  My tennis shoes I wear for work only and I didn't count those either. 

I tried to keep a very basic and versatile core wardrobe but I did have to add color to my tops or else I would have been one very depressed puppy by the time the 3 months are over.  I have to have color around me to be happy. 

I do plan on posting pictures of my outfits at least once a week.  I haven't gotten everything out of my closet yet.  I do have the clothes out but the extra shoes , not yet, I need to get a box yet to pack them up in.  My closet is looking pretty neat and orderly and spacious for being a little closet. 

Sorry for the lapse in posts

This year has been full of new beginnings and fast paced.  I have been so negligent of my blog and hope to correct that problem now that I am participating in a new challenge/project.  Project 333.

I am hoping that this will get me motivated and comfortable with making blogging a daily or at least 3 times a week habit that I get good and faster at it.  Check out the project and follow along and if you get inspired to join the adventure, jump right in and get started.  It is ok that the project has already started.  This is something that can be started at anytime and you can set your own 3 month window.
