For a couple of years I have contemplated doing the Project 333 where you use 33 pieces of clothing for 3 months. For one reason or another (mainly because I have many pieces of clothing that I love and do wear) I haven't committed to it. So...when Allison Lumbatis from the Style Me Pretty Blog presented her Spring Style Me Challenge, I jumped at the chance to join. She released her shopping list last Friday and I already had many of the 18 pieces in my wardrobe. I made a few purchases from Old Navy and Target to supplement. Beginning next week, Allison will be styling the pieces for 21 days. Check out her website, if you are interested in joining!
I'm also in the midst of determining what I should pack for our 10 day trip for England, Ireland and Scotland. Hopefully, these pieces will make it a little easier!
Below is our itinerary. We aren't able to do all of the things listed each day, but those are the options from which we will choose. Our oldest son, Brian has planned the entire thing and is beyond excited that we are going! (We are too!!)
