Onward and upward! Or perhaps, diagonally and widdershins!

Standard

Inspired by comments from a new reader, I have decided to partake in the next Project 333 challenge starting in October. Feel free to join me! I am as nosy as the next person, so I would love to see your photos and hear your experiences.

I expect that this will be challenging in new and different ways than my previous wardrobe challenges, mostly because I had unlimited outerwear and accessories for those. It is also going to be a challenge because it spans 3 months instead of 1, which means that my wardrobe needs to account for the heat and humidity of late summer/early autumn and the biting wind and cold of a north European winter. I also expect to do some fairly unusual things during the next three months, like attend job interviews, defend my thesis, and go for lunch at a three Michelin star restaurant. And finally, this will be a challenge because I don’t really have anywhere to box up and store the clothes that don’t make it into my 33 items. Some can go in the off-season suitcase, but I suppose that more of them will simply get taken to the charity collection box. Which is good, I guess. It will make my next international move easier.

I have some ideas on what will be included so far, but I will be using the rest of September to wear some clothes that I haven’t worn in a while and decide whether they make the cut or not. So far, the signs are not looking good for them.

On an unrelated note, I have applied to some more jobs. Let’s hope I can get an interview out of one of them, because so far the responses have been disappointing, to say the least.

  1. I know the feeling re job hunting. I’ve just started, after being out of the workforce for six years to have kids. I feel like a dinosaur! Good luck with yours though – let us know when you get something 🙂
