Amy's Style Story on



Tell us a little about yourself like what type of climate you live in, and what a typical day is like for you.

On a normal day, I live in Arizona. But, I am currently traveling by motorhome around the USA with my husband and four children for 7 months. Currently, we are in Washington DC where Fall attire is much different than what I would be wearing back in Arizona. This trip is unique in the fact that I need to be prepared for all weather elements and activities! I need to be able to dress for the campground as well as touring big cities.


Why did you start Project 333?

A friend recommend the Project to me as I was preparing to embark on this cross country family sabbatical. It sounded like a fun way for me to prepare my closet for this trip. Narrowing down my wardrobe for my RV closet was going to prove tough, so why not have a reason to make it challenging, yet fun with Project 333! Whenever I travel abroad or on a trip requiring only a carryon suitcase, I always pack a black-grey interchangeable layered wardrobe. I did the same thing on this adventure- incorporating color with my shoes and purses.


What’s in your 33?

8 pairs of shoes (1 flip flops, 2 wedge sandals, 1 pair Ugg boots, 1 workout shoes, 1 Converse, 1 colorful ballet flat, 1 black ballet flat)

2 dresses (cute, colorful, pointless most of the time)

2 pairs blue jeans (black skinny, distressed boyfriends)

2 shorts (denim cutoffs and black athletic shorts)

2 sweaters (black and grey cardigans)

2 black tops
2 T-shirts (with cute, inspirational sayings)

3 leggings (black and 2 patterned)

2 sweatshirts

2 purses (black and camel leather)

2 patterned colorful cross body purses

2 pair sunglasses (1 cheap pair and 1 fancy pair, in case there’s reason)

2 jackets (black rain coat and black heavier coat)

My wardrobe is all about layering and being prepared for any climate. Overall everything is pretty casual and comfortable. I do have workout outfits that I’m glad I didn’t have to include in my 33 as well!

What have you discovered as a result of dressing with less?

It is much easier getting dressed every day with limited outfits to choose from! I like not being overwhelmed with choices and options. Some days I miss the clothes that were left behind, but overall I’m happy with the pieces that I chose to bring and I’m thankful to Project 333 for helping me in this venture!
