Outfit of the Day – 7/29

Project 333 is a minimalist challenge to dress only using 33 pieces of clothing & accessories for 3 months. To track what I am actually using in this quarter’s capsule, I am sketching my outfits on Monday-Wednesday. It’s also good sketching practice!

Outfit of the Day 7/30

Oh man, I wish my hair looked that good today. It was actually a lot flatter. And still with the eye problems. :P

1. Fruity oaty bar tee-shirt
2. The reversible Sari skirt that you’ve seen before, but with the other side out. I accidentally got a little Technicolor with the outer skirt – it’s more muted than that.
3. Black ankle boots, which you’ve seen before as well, multiple times!

Outfit of the Day – 7/29 & a Buy Nothing Summer Update

Outfit of the Day 7/29

Here’s Tuesday’s Outfit. I went for my ratty skull shoes again. Comfort and ease won out over all as I was not having a good morning. I even forgot to grab my Mala, though I did remember my rings at least.

1. Andrews & Dunham Tea Tee
2. Denim Capri pants
3. Skull shoes

In Buy Nothing Summer news, I broke my buying fast. I was feeling sorry for myself, and went for Lego. I picked up two small sets and one larger Hobbit set that is discontinued and on sale. I spent the evening putting the two small sets together. I’ve been feeling very restless lately, and have been really tempted to buy some art supplies several times. I’m just going to take a deep breath and “start over” – there’s just over one more month left. So instead of thinking of it as the third or last month, I am going to think of it as one month. Maybe I will trick myself into thinking of it as just beginning. I think I might start a month-long art project for the August – I’m toying with a “drawing a day,” or an “ATC a day,” or perhaps just a “Make art every day” challenge. I have until Friday to make up my mind!

Outfit of the Day – 7/28

I had a busy workday and then an eye doctor appointment so I didn’t have time for a detailed sketch today. Just a quick one in pen. You also get a pic of the doodles I did in the waiting room while waiting for my eyes to dilate – that’s why I’ve got the ultra cool shades going instead of my usual eyeglasses.

1. Denim shirt with the sleeves rolled up
2. Bird tee
3. A handmade skirt – since I made it, it doesn’t count towards my 33 (my own rule)
4. My black ankle boots

So far, this is the 3rd outfit to use the ankle boots, and the 2nd to use the denim shirt. Unfortunately, I stepped in gum, so I will have to do some cleanup on the soles :(

Tour de Fleece Days 21 & 22

No pictures. Didn’t spin on Day 21, I did spin some today, the last day, but it’s the same ITW Captain Tightpants, so I’m not bothering with another pictures until it’s done. I have a personal rule to never take pictures when I don’t have pants on, and I don’t feel like getting dressed :D

I didn’t get as much done this year as I’d like to have, but that’s all right, I had fun, and got some yarn done, so that’s better than the beginning!

Once I get this braid spun up and plied, then washed and finished, I’ll post a Tour wrap-up.

My favorite things! (this week)

6 pocket Midori Traveler’s Notebook folder tutorial:

Bullet Journal – I think I may convert my blog planning to this method. It seems a little more flexible than the current method I am using.

The Little Printer – it’s a little ticker tape kind of printer that you can send stuff to and subscribe to “feeds” for it to print out. It’s pretty expensive ($199 US) but it just seems endearing and fun!

Here’s a song from the old video game The Neverhood. I adore the soundtrack to the game, it’s so much fun.

Outfit of the Day – 7/23

Project 333 is a minimalist challenge to dress only using 33 pieces of clothing & accessories for 3 months. To track what I am actually using in this quarter’s capsule, I am sketching my outfits on Monday-Wednesday. It’s also good sketching practice!

Today’s sketch is rough. I couldn’t get the mix on my shirt color right – I need to pick up a nice turquoise as a convenience color. I thought I was starting to get the proportions right, but today was difficult.

Outfit of the Day - 7/23

The boots are the same ones I wore on the first and third days. And the skirt is the same one from the first day, but it’s the black side instead of the patterned grey side.
