It’s end of the month time, those of you with a mathematical bent will be longing for this post. This is the sequel to the statistic in the wardrobe, today you are getting another rip-roaring romp through my wardrobe.
This is the basis of my wardrobe for the next three months. I can, and no doubt will add and subtract here and there. But after two months of clothes analysis I think this is the core.
This is how they look hanging up.
Including what I am wearing today that makes 27 items. I have not included shoes because for the most part I wear the same fit flops or Toms all summer.
This is how I got there.
This month I have worn more of my wardrobe, a total of 48 items compared to 40 last month, but blue has been toppled by gray.
- 11 tops 18 times
- 8 bottoms 20 times
- 8 dresses 12 times
- 6 cardigans 13 times
- 5 scarves 9 times
- 10 pairs of shoes 23 times
I must have forgotten to record some shoes because though I do spend most of my day barefoot, I do usually put something on my feet when I walk out of the house!
The colour analysis is dominated by gray, but I have managed to inject a little more colour this month
- Gray 22
- Blue 18
- Red 11
- Green 5
- Purple 4
- White 4
- Cream 1
- Pink 1
- Brown 1
But by far the most interesting figures are the comparison between one month and the next. As the weather has been pretty consistent they should be fairly comparable
I wore 5 tops, 5 bottoms, 5 dresses and 3 cardigans both months. Those items were worn a whopping 84 times over the past two months with the highest wearage going to an ancient pale blue jersey wrap which was worn 12 times during April and May.
So isolating the clothes I wore most and adding in those I know go with the core items and I love (no good if I don’t love them, I won’t wear them and they should be on the way out anyway) I have my reverse approach to Project 333.
