look, no pastels!

So the weather is cooling down and the mornings and evenings are getting chilly, but I still refuse to wear tights. I'm too busy grasping at whatever warm weather we have left (which, when it reaches about 10am, is quite a lot actually). I'm also grasping at getting as much wear out of this skirt as I can before it inevitably falls to pieces. It's starting to look a bit worse for wear. Sad face. What AREN'T looking worse for wear are these Ash ankle boots that I scored from my-wardrobe.com. Happy face. I still like to wear them with nearly everything. Usually I find it hard to pair midi length skirts with ankle boots for fear of making my legs look stumpy, but these boots are perfect. I think it has to do with the dippy bit at the front. Yes, dippy bit. Check out my grasp of the English language yo.

  3. @herecomesthesun: I guess I didn't explain myself properly. I don't NOT like tights. I wear stockings all the time in winter. I just can't bring myself to wear them just yet! Plus they don't seem go with midi skirts, which is what half my wardrobe consists of at the moment. eeek!

    @Macy: thank you!

  6. I love that outfit! I have a few midi-length things and I actually like wearing them with knee-high boots. It makes me feel kinda 1970s, hehe.

  16. Sooo weird - this outfit is so damn close to what I've planned to wear saturday to a party that I'm beginning to get scared. Same tee, but shorter sleeves, navy maxi skirt and boots.
    Is there some kind of mental link that I don't know about, like harry potter and voldemort (but possibly less scary). I'll def have to take an outfit photo on sat now >.>
