It’s been a while since I’ve written here, so I wanted to check in. I’ve felt a bit stuck and blocked as far as what to write about, so I’m going to get back to posting with a series of updates on some of my previous topics (you can see my full blog archive HERE).
We’ll start today by checking in on a few posts I’ve written about the tops in my closet. I’ll update you on what’s going on with my “category two” tops (those tops that must be worn with a topper), my overabundance of black tops, and the poor-performing Caslon tees that I accumulated in recent years. I’ll close out the post with some wardrobe-related goals for the remainder of 2022 and beyond.
Update #1 – Category Two Tops
In late April, I shared that I had classified my tops into three categories and organized my closet to reflect those groupings. Here’s a brief reminder of the new top classifications:
- Category One: “Standalone tops” that can be comfortably worn without a topper (in terms of my emotional comfort, a topic I discussed in detail HERE).
- Category Two: Tops that I only feel comfortable wearing with a topper (cardigan or jacket) over them, usually because they’re either too tight or too short.
- Category Three: Tops that are worn only at home or for exercise, either because of the style of the top or its condition (i.e., somewhat worn out).
I set a goal to eventually eliminate category two and to keep category three relatively small. I decided that I wanted the bulk of my tops to be “crossover pieces” that are appropriate for a variety of activities and don’t need to be worn with a topper.
