This was my first week with Project 333. I still have 23 items left unworn in the capsule.

I felt pretty good with my selections, but quickly discovered that I needed to do two things: I need to plan my outfits the night before so I don't feel tempted to wear something not in my capsule/feel too limited by my capsule when in a rush, and I need to move the majority of the non-33 items out of my sight to reduce the temptation. I started project 333 with several new items that I'm excited to wear, so boredom has not set in yet.

I've been tempted to wear a couple items that are not in my capsule, primarily a gray pair of straight trousers that split the wears of my fitted slim-flare herringbone trousers and the only non-spring/summer top that is not in my capsule. I didn't add the top because I tend to wear it with a burgundy cardigan that was also not included. The top is a contender for becoming the 33rd item but I'm not certain yet. I also was tempted with my jade faux-leather jacket and my red surplice sweater (my dad's favorite color, which I was tempted to wear when I went to see my parents).
