Here's a beloved but somewhat orphaned skirt. I'd like to wear it to a little reunion dinner with friends from Europe in New York later this month -- if temps cool down; it's going to be mid 90s here today!

I typically wear this with a silk tee in the same colour, though it was purchased as a stopgap and I feel it looks that way--possibly a bit casual with this skirt. I love the Edwardian vibe of the lace overlay and sometimes add a necklace from my great grandmother--though that accessory is a decidedly oddball piece and may push things over the top on the era. I'll try to take a pic later and add.

I love the look in pic 3, with the blouson style that covers the skirt's grosgrain waistband. But that's not my colour and I'd prefer something with sleeves so I don't need to come up with a topper -- I'm always cold in restaurants. Does anyone have suggestions on tops? I've been looking for blush or possibly a metallic bronze/copper colour but haven't found anything that works. I'd like something that creates a less deep autumn/holiday look than my typical pairing. If you've come across anything in your surfing travels, I'd truly appreciate your ideas.
