Separates mean work – it’s hard for me to think about what goes with what but it’s becoming easier. I love this skirt and bought it in navy as well. It’s just a very useful shape and tansitional piece with casual or dressier shoes. A safari shirt or top is indispensible for Summer. My favourite sleeveless one by Gap, from 1995, has been worn literally to threads and this is a long sleeve replacement from some time ago.
