Traditional Character for lǐ : 裡 or 裏 ?

I've recently come across a variant [ ] of the traditional character (lǐ, inside).  I'm used to seeing ,so this variant threw me off.

I've learned that they both have the same radical and have the same total strokes:

   衣衤 + 7    13 strokes

   衣衤 + 7    13 strokes

Does anyone have any insight into why one would be used instead of the other?

Much thanks!
