March Wardrobe Wear

Since January 6th, I've been tracking what I wear. My goal is to wear everything I own (except specific formal wear) a minimum of 10x this year or purge it. Days that I don't leave my house are spent in lounge-wear, which doesn't count. I had 1 day I didn't leave the house in March. This is my progress so far (ending March 31st):

Tops: I have worn 18 of them, two of which has been purged since then and one downgraded, leaving 2 tops unworn thus far. The tops with the highest wear had been my white ruffled blouse and my green printed peplum top, both at 7x each.

Sweaters: All 6 have been worn, and the sweater with the highest wear is my white cable-knit sweater and purple cowl-neck sweaters at 4x so far.

Jackets/Blazers: My burgundy leather jacket is still at the top at 6x now.

Cardigans: I purged two that I wore 1x each. I've only worn 8 of the rest leaving 2 unworn. My black sparkle cardigan has been worn the most at 7x.

Camisoles and tanks: I downgraded a camisole to lounge-wear and purged another that I think I've only wore 1x in the 3 years I have had it. I have worn all 6 of what is left (typo last month). My white camisole has already been worn 15x.
Pants: I've worn 15 pairs so far, but have purged one pair. with my Rerock jeans ringing in at 16 wears, still on top!
Skirts: I have 4 skirts- I had 5 but purged one. I've worn all, with my leopard skirt still on top at 4x.
Dresses: So far I've worn 4 of my dresses. My blue zipper dress has been worn 3x- still on top!
 Necklaces: I have worn 20 so far! My blue stone, black, and my mint 3-strand necklaces have gotten the most wear at 6x each (black and mint repeats on top).
Bracelets: I have worn 7 so far. My black bracelet was worn the most at 5x, still on top!

Earrings: I've worn 11 pairs of earrings. My heart earrings got the most wear at 14x, still on top.

Belts: I have worn 3, my grey pants one 3x.

Scarves: I have worn both 1x.

Coats & Outerwear: I have worn my winter hat and scarf 70x and 71x, my grey coat 72x, teal 1x (too tight still), and my white puffer 1x but have since purged it.

Shoes: I've worn 10 pairs so far, and my black pumps have gotten 31 wears so far! My black winter boots were part of an outfit 12 times so far but were worn almost daily outside, for a total of 68 wears. I wore my grey winter boots 1x and black flats for commute 1x. I expect the black flats to get worn into the ground (already almost are) as it gets warmer out and I use them to commute.


  1. The leopard skirt is hot. I love how specific you are in tracking everything- I might need to start something like that later in the year. First though I would like to purge a bunch of my closet right at the get-go.

    1. Tracking what you wear is very very eye opening. I found I don't wear 1/4 of what I imagined I did and not half as often as I thought! I would say you can track what you wear independent of purging or counting what you own- you're not likely to purge something you like to wear! :) I really think you should give it a try!!
