If I can only have 33 items, then they better be the perfect ones. Things are slowly coming out of my closet and going into three piles: keep for afterwards, use for Project 333, and discard.
First, I looked at the drawer where I keep my exercise clothes. I swim, bike, and run regularly (I'll do a sprint triathalon in 2013, I swear).
My selected biking clothes: one pair bike shorts, one pair bike leggings, one short-sleeve bike shirt, one bike tank.
My selected running clothes:
one pair running shorts, one tank, one pair running leggings, one jacket.

I have to ride with my back covered. The white and purple bike shirt covers my entire back and is long enough in the back not to ride up.
Burning like this doesn't seem to be a problem when I run, though. I run in the early morning and evenings when there's only a little sunlight.
I haven't decided about my swimming items yet. I boxed up the few other athletic items I have.
This is where I cheat, though: I decided that my running clothes will be lumped together as one item, and the same goes for my biking clothes and swimming clothes. Why? Because Project 333 is about seeing how little you can live with, and after years at these sports at know that there is no way I am running in DC in early September in anything more than a tank top and shorts, and no way I'm running in November in less than leggings and a long-sleeve pullover. I can wear the jacket for running and cycling.
Friday's Fashion FalloutOne item I know I'm getting rid of is this old cycling shirt. It doesn't fit anymore. Even when it did fit the fabric was scratchy. Item 136 and today's Friday's Fashion Fallout item: a well-loved cycling shirt.
|And its tag says....Made in U.S.A. Can't remember when I last saw that on a piece of clothing.|
