The Working Closet after Week 2.

DH Closet Challenge Part II-Wardrobe Refinement working closet after week 2.

I’ve just completed Week 2 of The DH Closet Challenge Part II-Wardrobe RefinementAfter week one, I added 21 items to my working wardrobe.  Of these pieces, I already had 7 bottoms.  Therefore for week two, my goal was to focus on only adding tops.  Of course, life likes to throw curve balls and I had a last minute business trip, which meant sporting a business outfit.  My business trousers are usually kept in a separate closet, since they are not worn weekly.  The tops and blazers from my business capsule, I try to pair with jeans to increase their use so these pieces are part of my fall/winter (or spring/summer) wardrobes.  Of course, storing clothing in separate closets makes it easy to forget I own the item.  Not a good idea.

This time I’m going to fold in the business clothing as I sport the pieces.

I have 31 items after week two:

  • 1 Vest (gear) (no change)
  • 1 Pullover Fleece (gear) (no change)
  • 2 Blazers (added 1)
  • 6 Knits (added 2)
  • 3 T-Shirts (added 1)
  • 1 LS T’s (a new line item for this week)
  • 7 Jeans (one was used as gear) (no change)
  • 1 trousers (Business Capsule; this is a new line item for this week)
  • 1 button down shirt (a new line item for this week)
  • 1 blouse (Business Capsule; this is a new line item for this week)
  • 1 Scarf (no change)
  • 3 Tanks (added 1)
  • 1 Thermal (no change)
  • 1 Cardigan (no change)
  • 1 Hoodie (a new line item for this week)

I added a total of 10 items for week two.  For week three, my plan is to remix everything I already have and not add anything from the boutique.  Of course, I see another curve ball that I’ll talk about in next week’s recap.

Do you try to remix your Business clothing with your casual wardrobe?
