On The Hunt For

Beyond The Pale

Beige skirt

I’m on the hunt for a pale skirt this spring. Not white, more of an eggshell, to wear with my neutral tops.

I don’t know when the pic of Tasha Tilberg was taken, but a skirt with sneakers will be my spring run-around uniform. I’m even thinking about a below-the-knee length a la CBK.

  • I’ve been looking for a pair of eggshell/ecru jeans for a few seasons. I find the color softer than optic white. I’ve never found a pair for women, but plenty for men? Hopefully this season. I’m loving pale in general.

  • That photo of Caroline Kennedy looks fabulous even after all of these years. Her look was very stylish yet timeless.

  • My closet overflows with various shades of khaki, tan, and stone pants and skirts for Spring and summer. I adore them, and I never tire of them. These are definitely calm and clean shades and pair so well with white, black, indigo, pink, orange . . . They are crisp and cool in the warm months, and a wonderful alternative to jeans to travel (and arrive) in. Photos above are both wonderful, polished day looks (especially Ms. Bessett with her boots and handbag).

  • Kathy, have you considered giving a bright white pair of jeans a weak tea bath?

  • Lovely…..but not for wearing on public transport!

  • Cindy – what a good idea. I have a bright white pair that I want to get rid of as they’re stained – I think I’ll practice on those! Thank you.

  • Love all of the above. Who makes the pleated?

  • I agree…the aviators are amazing. Where to find? Also, where to find her shoes????
