Wardrobe planning for next season ... shoes first

I've come under the influence of several blogs that do wardrobe planning. The best has to be Courtney Carver of Project 333. Note that this is my "aspirational" wardrobe plan - you choose 33 items from your wardrobe and use only them for three months. Every season you reassess and start again.  You can check out how to do this on Project 333's blog here

Some people may be able to get right down to 33 pieces but I'm guessing that's not me. Especially since I don't wear black! But here's a pic from her website that demonstrates the concept perfectly. I love this so much (except for the black of course).

So here's my starting line. My shoes for this spring/summer:

Ree's shoes 2015
So I love my Fluevogs (far left) the most. Shoes #2 are FLY London and are my market shoes - you need all those inches of rubber sole when you are on your feet all day. Note that shoes 4 and 5 are the same but different colours - they have been worn the most in past seasons. New #6 flats in leopard print replacing last year's leopard flats that wore out - need I say more??? #8 are Country Road flatform sandals and will go so well with all the ankle pants I'm making and wearing this year. And jandals on the end because I am a kiwi!

Now I need to think about the clothes ...
