Here is a list of the contents of my closet:
- black skirt
- black dress pants (2) one in better condition than the other
- black exercise pants
- jeans (1)
- denim capris (2) one pair for going out in public, one for at home
- khaki capris
- black blouse (3/4 sleeve)
- blue blouse (3/4 sleeve)
- tan linen blouse (short sleeve)
- mint green blouse (3/4 sleeve)
- pink/tan/white striped blouse (3/4 sleeve)
- white blouse (long sleeve)
- white blouse (3/4 sleeve)
- black tee
- blue tee
- mint colored dressy tee
- white tee
- stained tee (suitable for at home only)
- black blazer
- tan blazer
- brown sweater
- striped sweater in muted grays and blues
- dark purple sweater
I also have two hoodies (one that is mostly ripped to shreds but is great for working outside in) and one gray turtleneck that I only wear for my early morning walks.
28 items including 5 things that are not suitable for wearing out in public. If I didn't work in the yard and garden, I'd really have a streamlined wardrobe!Footwear includes: black boots, black slides (great with pants or skirts and comfortable as slippers) white sandals, black flip flops, and walking shoes. Oh, and a pair of worn out Crocs destined for this.
I'm not listing my unmentionables here, but rest assured there are enough to get me through the week and beyond.
This is what works for me. I do not work outside of the home, but if I did or if I were up in front in church, I would probably only add one skirt or dress and perhaps a pair of dressy khaki slacks.
Also, there is a new dress in my future when Daniel and Laura get married. :)
What works for you? Do you have lots and lots of clothes? Do you wear them all? Or could your wardrobe use some paring down? Please leave a comment - I'd love to know what your thoughts are?
Does a wardrobe a la Steve Jobs appeal?
