I didn't take photos often but I did keep track of what I was wearing. It was an unusual month because I moved and have been setting up house.

Some of my wardrobe remains in Ontario. I left items that I felt I'd be unlikely to wear due to different weather conditions. My current numbers (excluding gear and sleepwear and undies) are around 133.

Here's what I wore:

  • 4 of 7 bags (just over half)
  • 5 of 23 footwear. (I didn't have most shoes until mid-month and then the weather changed.)
  • 2 of 9 coats
  • 3 of 10 dresses (stopped wearing summer dresses and had no occasion for truly dressy items)
  • 2 of 6 skirts (stopped wearing skirts due to weather shifts)
  • 0 of 7 pants. (these are mostly late fall/ winter items or high summer linen)
  • 8 of 9 jeans (it's jean season!)
  • 0 of 3 shorts (too cool)
  • 6 of 11 toppers (beginning of topper season)
  • 4 of 4 cardigans (easy to wear and carry)
  • 7 of 17 shirts/ blouses
  • 5 of 12 sleeveless tops
  • 8 of 18 knitwear (some knits still too warm/ bulky)
  • 7 of 9 scarves (good transitional items)

61 items -- or close to half the working wardrobe!

My most repeated items at more than 10 wears were my silver sneakers and 2 of my bags. All jeans except one got at least 5 wears. My most worn topper was my grey cardigan (about 10 wears) and my plaid jacket (5 wears). My utility coat got a lot of wear also.

I'm surprised that I wore so many items but perhaps I shouldn't be since it's a transitional season. It's clear that I wear different clothes in my new climate -- long sleeved shirts get much more play than they ever do at home. I repeated each one I wore multiple times. Jeans remain a true staple.
