Thanks, @crystaljoyce . I thought about a dress, but I get a lot of use out of my stretch black skirt. I wear it sometimes with tee-shirt type tops. It's one of my favorite pieces right now and will continue to be into the Fall. My black blazer is my other "go-to" item.
I love your 10 pieces! I think your selection is actually realistic with your top to bottom ratio. I became a little greedy with my tops and ended up with one pair of jeans and one dress to pair with my 8 tops. lol
