My last season's list: Winter's End 2017
And the one before that: Winter 2016-2017

Time period: May to August 2017

This spring/summer brings change here in much more than clothing. We are in the middle/muddle of moving from a house to an apartment, which means that I've been busy with things other than what to wear, and also that I'm going to have less closet and drawer space when the moving is done. So, Project 333 to the rescue. Also the new (to me) idea of a One Week Wardrobe, which is another way of saying, "I have enough." 

TOTAL ITEMS:  35 (it was going to be 32, but I bought some t-shirts)
Not counting: scarves, jewelry, hats, and a couple of around-the-house t-shirts and shorts

Inspirations This Summer

 Breakfast in the Garden, by Frederick Carl Frieseke,
also called Teatime in a Giverny Garden. Tea, breakfast, it's all good.

My husband gave me this necklace for my birthday: an instant favourite.
