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:

2 x sneakers (hi; lo)
3 x pumps (brown oxford; light pink; white alligator)
2 x flats (black in TO office; black in STL office)
1 x birkenstock
1 x cute winter boots
1 x real winter boots (for visiting Quebec City in February)
1 x hiking shoes
————
11 x shoes

total = 11 + 83 = 94 < 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.
