So yesterday I cleaned out my closets. I tried on all of my work clothes from teaching. I them made three piles- Fits, Almost Fits, and Doesn’t Fit. Fits are clothes I can wear right now. Almost Fits are clothes that I can get on, but maybe won’t button or looks or feels too tight. I hopefully will lose weight enough to wear these, as they include black, grey, khaki, and brown pants, two much-loved brown skirts, and a few tops that the sleeves are too tight or the bust doesn’t button. Doesn’t Fit is self-explanatory, and got demoted to being folded on the top shelf of the closet. I then took pictures of everything and uploaded them to Flickr. Some are bad flash or blurred pictures, but they do the job. Feel free to have a look here. Right now I have 1 pair of pants and several skirts, and quite a few sweaters, shirts, and blouses.
Today, using a gift certificate online, I bought 3 sleeveless button-down blouses from Old Navy– I think these will be good for under long-sleeved sweaters, when wearing a long-sleeved shirt underneath would be too tight. I bought white, black, and blue.
Apparently I have lots of white, black, and blue tops, and several print skirts. I think I need to:
- Get at least 2 pairs of pants- khaki and maybe grey or brown
- Get at least 2 solid skirts- again, khaki and another color
- Find a top to go with the orange poppy skirt– I’ve never worn it!
- Inject colors other that blue, white, and black into my clothes- I like other colors now, like dark pink, orange, red, purple, and green
I already have plans to knit the dark teal u-neck vest, and I think I want to knit the Shalom cardigan too. I’d like to have a bit of a funky style, and not just mindlessley wear clothes each day.
What opinions do you have on my clothes? How would you add to my wardrobe? Comment please!
PS- I was wondering if this cami works over a long sleeved shirt- I took an impromptu pic:
I thought it might be a bit weird, with the fuller torso and low neckline.
