When I first dreamed of visiting Paris, I had just finished watching the season finale of Sex and the City and thought it would be really great to stroll the streets of Paris in high heels, a dress I couldn’t afford, and of course a darling hat.
Fast forward 10 years: I don’t own a darling hat or a dress I can’t afford, and wouldn’t dream of discovering any city in heels. It’s an understatement to say that Project 333 has changed the contents of my closet and the way I view the world.
When I did finally visit Paris after traveling lightly for 20 days I explored the city without …
- worrying about what I was wearing
- wondering what I forgot
- trying on multiple outfits
- waiting for my luggage
- wishing I brought or didn’t bring something
By dressing with less, I learned that the best things are rarely things. Now I focus my time, energy and dollars on what matters most.
