33 x 3 = 99

I heard about this challenge to dress with 33 items or less for 3 months and decided to quantify my closet:

4 x blazers (1 x black; 1 x gray; 2 x jcrew navy)
4 x cashmere (1 x gray; 1 x white; 1 x champagne; 1 x madewell sweatshirt)
2 x other sweatshirt (1 x white; 1 x gray)
6 x other sweaters (2 x his shrunken ones; 1 x black; 1 x zara navy/white stripe; 1 x sheep; 1 x print)
————
subtotal = 63 + 16 = 79

2 x long jackets (1 x navy; 1 x red)
3 x short jacket (1 x black; 1 x gray; 1 x red)
2 x rain jacket (1 x black; 1 x purple)
1 x trench coat (1 x navy)

subtotal = 79 + 8 = 87

2 x sneakers (2 x muji black)
1 x hiking boots
3 x pumps (1 x olive cos; 1 x black; 1 x pale pink)
1 x flats (1 x muji navy)
3 x sandals (1 x birkenstock; 1 x slides)
————
10 x shoes

total = 87 + 10 = 97 < 99 = 33 x 3

Since it's possible to wear the same thing in the fall and the spring, there are really three seasons to dress for.

P.S. socks, underwear, ski jacket/pants and running/hiking tops/shoes excluded
