i came to this number all backwards…and that's how i know it works. i started with more and in time, arrived here. just curious, i wrote every piece down and counted them up. my fifty pieces do not include pajamas, workout clothing, coats, or accessories…but those things are minimalish as well.
now that i've got a number to try to stick to…the way i am thinking i will approach my closet…is to keep a smaller number of pieces "out" and switch them up periodically with what is in storage (in my suitcase, in my closet). i don't really want to look at all my clothes all the time, because i'll get sick of them sooner. this method keeps things feeling fresh and allows me to enjoy my wardrobe, while keeping it small and non-disposable.
i don't really feel like i need anything new this season, but i'm reserving the right to buy something if i decide to. that piece would have to be fairly made and would have to replace an existing piece in my closet.
just because i like when others post these sorts of things…here's a general list of my fifty at the moment.
lighter dresses- 4
warmer dresses- 3
short sleeved tops- 6
3/4 sleeved tops- 3
long sleeved tops- 8
warmer sweaters- 3
how is your closet shaping up?
