I debated on color schemes for autumn. (My favorite season.) Should be colors that I feel good in and that look good on me. I love olive green and it's the closest I ever get to a neutral. I was originally going to go with that. I have shoes, a jacket and a skirt in that color.
But olive green isn't my best color. It's too warm for my complexion. I realized that I don't really have a lot of neutrals in my wardrobe and it does make it hard to match things so I went shopping. I love pinks, mint green, raspberry and lilac and they look good on me. So I was looking for those colors. Wouldn't you know that they aren't in season/style right now! Classics never go out of style. But I'm looking for a specific color. Boo.
I'd love to get some turquoise Malibrans (pictured left) to go with it, but...it's not in the budget yet.
Also I've looked over my brown boots and I'd like to get a quality pair next year. They are fake leather and flaking off on the inside part of the leg side of the boot. So, I save for these things for next year. Or maybe someone reading this will get them for me for Christmas. (Fluevogs I wear a 10.5, most other things I wear a 10)
I've made some adjustments to my summer wardrobe to keep it going. I've realized that a lot of the colors I was wearing were...a little dark.(like the olive and black!)
In the seasonal color palette (to see more about this look here) I am a light summer.
This is my best color palette.
It's mostly pink and blue and some pastel colors. But I like the light purples at the bottom and the pinks and raspberry with the greens. This green shirt I have on in the picture is not in the palette exactly, (pretty close!) it's a spring color. Yet, I like it a lot on me. I took this picture to show how long my hair was getting.
I never did order the 'Joker' Tee. I like it a lot, but I'm not sure it rounds out my wardrobe. And, I really don't need another Tee shirt. I have a hard time going through the ones that I already own.
Deciding on a specific color palette is hard! I noticed in my closet that I had a lot of patterns and not a lot of solids and a mix of colors so that nothing really matched anything else. I find this to be my greatest problem with project 333. Making sure everything matches or at least mixes well with the other articles of clothing.
So this in mind I have rearranged my wardrobe to reflect this revelation. So here is what I decided. Only 33 clothing items will be counted, not to include sweaters for warmth, shoes, clothing for exercising or purses. I did pare these down previously, so I feel good about it. And they all (except the shoes) fit in my dresser space.)
Super comfy mint shirt. I really wanted to infuse this color into my wardrobe. This will layer really well.
I made this shirt as well. I love it because it's linen and soft.
So, this being my second round of project333, I will be trying to take a picture of my outfits as I go along. There is a challenge to post the first 33 days of outfits on the project333 website.
What do you find to be the hardest part of project333? Are you thinking about minimizing your wardrobe??
