Do you enjoy a style hunt? When I was last in Manhattan, I thrifted a little tan cotton skirt by Comptoirs des Cotonniers. I’d never heard of the brand but the skirt was well-made and had funky details. I’ve since learned that they have a small boutique in Soho and sell online and in Europe. They seem to have zeroed in on my style like a boss. A little bit classic, some whimsy, surprising details and colors, and personality.

It looks like reliable beige in photos, but it has a hint of lavender/gray. Love. I paired it with a thrifted bat-wing top by Ann Taylor (sim) and (very) old blue suede platforms by Sofft (sim).
