I've been seeing a lot of bloggers do closet inventory posts lately, and I was curious as to what my closet is comprised of, so I did my own inventory over the weekend. This list doesn't include things such as workout wear, pj's, sweatshirts, those t-shirts you get from school, or flip flops. Here are my results:
Maxi skirts: 5
Shorter skirts: 8
'Nice' tanks: 7
Basic tanks: 17
3/4 or longsleeve: 27
Total of all items= 226
I don't know what I was really expecting when I got all my numbers. I recently did a major closet clean-out, so I knew I didn't have a very high number. It is interesting to see it all on the page, though. 129 tops and only 39 bottoms? I think if anything, it helps me see where I should focus my buying on, if I decide to add pieces to my closet. I've never bought a ton of pants/shorts/capris/etc, mostly because I always had the most trouble finding pieces that fit well. I only got into wearing shorts in the last couple years! I also just made a purchase from thred-up, so a few more tops may be added to this collection...
Have you done a closet inventory before? Were you surprised by the results?
