Project 333: Week One

I had written an individual post for Day two but then got scuppered by the goings on in work last week. I work in a sixth form college which offers HE provision in association with a local University. The agency which inspects this type of provision in the UK is called QAA (the Quality Assurance Agency). They  arrived at college on Tuesday for the first day of a 3 day inspection (where they will grilled us and scrutinised our provision). It was little scary and a lot of hard work.

So, last week's wardrobe had to be smart, and practical. As the administrator for the programmes the week involved a lot of running around, chasing up people and paper work, making drinks, dishing out the biscuits and generally making sure things ran as smoothly as they could. That meant comfy shoes, comfy trousers and a top that wasn't going to make me sweat like a pig!

Here's how the week panned out:

Tuesday 3rd:

Wednesday 4th:

Thursday 5th:

Friday 6th:

Saturday 7th:

Sunday 8th*:

*the white cami isn't in my 33. I wear it as underwear beneath the lace grey jumper so don't count it.
Lessons from week one then?
  • I should wear the grey blazer more. I really like it, its comfortable and loads of people said I looked great that day.
  • I'm really, really not sure about the coral coloured cardigan. Hmmmmm. I shall have to live with it for the next few weeks but I don't think it will make the cut in the long run. I'm still trying to figure out what it is that makes me not love it. I'm thinking it's probably the length.
  • P333 makes laundry a peculiar entity. Yes, I have loads less to do, but now I actually have to DO it! LOL. No waiting round as I get to the bottom of my endless wardrobe. If I don't wash it, I'm going to have a week of naked! Yikes!
There are a tonne of great bloggers out there doing Project 333. I particularly love Janice Rigg's blog The Vivienne Files. I particularly like her "Getting dress with 33" posts where she breaks down her selections by "What I know", "What I Want" and "What I chose". With the weather being so variable here at the moment (we've been back to thunderstorms once again) and my work weeks and weekends being something of a mixed bag I need to give some thought to what the days weather is going to bring and what I'm going to be dressing for. This seems a nice simple way to get to a decision.

Right then, onwards and upwards for week two.
