Ergo, I am getting my wardrobe in order. I didn't realize how tiring clothing can be and has been! I've been trying to decide and pack up my clothing for 5 hours and I'm still not done. I've got 5 shopping bags full of clothing to go out of the closet for good! I've also got 6 medium boxes of stuff that I want to keep, but I am not going to wear it for awhile or it just didn't match into what I wanted to do. I am going to go through it all after this term is over. I know that I'm jumping into the summer in the middle. Since it ends in September and starts over in fall, I have decided to just do the abbreviated time that is left as a trial run. Then I will amend what I have with what I have learned about my wardrobe and myself.
So it may ended up being a Project 241 for awhile. I had a lot of trouble weeding out some of my things and making matching coordinates. I don't like to wear only solids. I am a printy-texture kinda girl. Plus, my wardrobe was so mis-matched that not everything goes together well. Although I starting thinking up ideas in my head for outfits and some of these are going to be ways I have never worn my clothes before.
If you are curious about this project you can check it out at the website for project 333. I also got inspiration from this blog. Her style is not cookie cutter and I like how she mixed up her pieces. I need to throw in my nerdy life style stuff too. It's not like I have to go to an office right?
I'm thinking of buying ONE shirt to bring this together a bit more. (Joker Shirt, it's just so me! I am trying not to buy it, maybe I'll get it for my birthday?It's on my amazon wish list.) I'm getting rid of so many things. I'm selling some of my Fluevogs(shoes) and as I said a lot of my clothes are headed out. Some of my Fluevogs will be staying, but I do not wear them as much as I used to when I worked at the office, so they have to go. Although I will be keeping my favorites. :D I would like to get the green ones that match my purple purse.
I looked at what a lot of people do for their project and most people do a lot of suits. That's great, but again I'm not an office worker anymore. So, I based mine around fun things that I like and jeans. (Did I mention that I don't have to go to an office anymore? LOL)
I did not include workout wear (although I did weed through it), under clothes,sunglasses, socks and my winter coat (although I hope I don't need it until after October is over. :) As I plan on amending this later I may include some of these things at a later date.
Here is what I chose and under that is the photos of each one. I took my own because I didn't want to search for stock photos and some of these I made, so there was no other way to show those.
Speaking of things that I've made, I have more trouble letting go of those things that I've made for myself. If I bought it from a store or something it doesn't have much meaning to me, but if I spent my time and energy on it I want to hang on to that. So, I will be addressing that issue later.

|Has matching skirt.|
|I love this retro blouse.|
|I'm a Nerd.|
|I may eventually get another white Tee that is better and doesn't have the logo on the bottom of the shirt. I stole this from my DH.|
|This has a matching 'belt' that I had to mend. It's not in the picture, but it will be in the closet.|
|Again, I'm a Nerd.|
|Not sure if scarves are my thing. I'm going to try it. I own 3 and I never wear them. Should I just take it out before I start this?|
|I made this. It wraps around the body. Super comfy and I think it's super cute.|
|This is hanging frumpy, but it's not when it's on me.|
|This is reversible, so I took the picture with the skirt up to show both sides.|
|All shorts will be phased out for fall and add something else, or maybe not.|
|Marie Curie-One of my namesakes. Love her.|
|These look better on my feet, but I think I'll replace them next year.|
|I have another pair of jeans just like this that are light colored. I did not get a picture of them.|
I will be updating my fall wardrobe soon and adding pictures of me in what I choose to wear.
Thanks for reading! I can only hope this goes well!
