I decided to challenge myself to live with 10 items of clothing (plus shoes & accessories) for 2 weeks. This was for daytime wear not including exercise or yard work. I selected 2 pairs of jeans and one pair of slacks, 2 cardigans, and 5 tops. Shoes, camisoles/tanks, coats, hats, gloves, scarves & jewelry were not counted.
I came up with over 14 different outfits some of which were worn previously, some new and some I would not put in rotation. It did push me to get out of jeans occasionally and try different combos. I also used 3 pairs of shoes, 2 tanks as under layers, 2 coats, 2 hats, 2 pairs of gloves, 3 scarves, and 8 pieces of jewelry for a total of 32 items. There were a few yard work, house cleaning days where I wore those kind of clothes but other than that I was comfortable being at home, running errands, going to a party and going out to dinner and coffee. This gives me one nice vacation wardrobe
guide for certain weather conditions.
Could you live comfortably with this few clothing items for a season? I liked finding new outfits and am going to start working on 10 Item Wardrobe #2.
