So having done the other tops naturally lead on to looking at the shirts and blouses which hang up.
I went through these and found 5 to donate.
I then carried on with the hanging items making up outfits as I went,
matching jacket+trousers/skirt suit
jacket with co-ordinating skirt/trousers/dress
and a selection of navy and black bottoms which together with the various tops work with the bright jackets (red, lime, turquoise etc)
I mostly don't wear light bottoms, two things which had a trim round the neckline (a piped jacket and a grosgrain trimmed shirt) are not my style (too preppy?)
Overall I donated 4 jackets, 4 skirts, 1 knit dress, 5 shirts, 1 scarf and 2 pairs of trousers. I did wear these things occasionally, but always in a slightly forced way so they are not going to be a huge loss in my wardrobe.
I am sure there will be more to come out, but at this stage, and without much pain I am pleased with.
No pictures of the wardrobe yet as I have lots of stuff in the bottom as yet unsorted!
