At the end of November I wrote this post outlining my plan to track what clothes I wear.
It is now a little over a month since I began this project of 1st December so I thought it was time to check how I am going.
I listed every item of clothing that I own on an Excel spreadsheet. I included scarves but not socks, underwear or pyjamas. There were 90 items on the list initially but it expanded during December when I bought 5 new tops so it is now 95. It encompasses the full range from a cocktail dress to the clothes I wear when I am gardening and everything in between.
December included work, casual social occasions, Christmas, a trip to Melbourne and some work around the house. I wore almost half of my total collection with 46 pieces being worn. Many pieces wore worn just once or twice during the month but my 2 pairs of denim jeans were each worn on 4 different days. I found this surprising as it is summer and I would not have expected this.
I think this is going to be a really interesting exercise and am looking forward to understanding what I wear most often.
