You the professional: boots + skirts

Have I ever told you how much I love you? When I sent out this call for photos on Wednesday, I had no idea if anyone was even interested, but I am so excited that these girls were! So without further ado, check out their awesome office skirt + boot combos.

Reader Rachel, who (I hope!) will be starting her style blog soon. Check out her vintage skirt!

Let's give these ladies a hand! Flat boots, tall boots, and all matter of kinds of skirts...they do it all. Check out my tips for rocking the boot + skirt combo here.

Thanks for your participation ladies, and for the great feedback! I'm thinking I may make this a monthly feature with different work style combos.  Who's in?


  1. What a great post! I am always concerned about the length of my skirt in a professional situation (I dare go pretty short since I'm in a creative field, but I'm not sure that's a good escuxe...) and these ladies are really inspiring me with their longer hems and boots! A combo I will be trying soon for sure :)

  2. this is a great post! i love seeing how other people are wearing knee-high boots and skirts to work too as it's definitely something trickier to pull off. i think it would be great to have this as weekly feature!

    cute and little
    come join the Color Brigade!

  3. I think it would be a great addition! And I would love to contribute!

  4. Ooh, you should definitely make it a regular feature! If I can ever figure out how to get a decent picture, I'll contribute.

  5. This turned out so wonderful! I love seeing the diversity of styles for the same concept. Please do it again!

    I can't think of a topic for right now, but when the weather warms up, I'd *love* something about appropriate summer clothes in the office.

  6. love this. it's great to see how everyone wears their boots to work. And of course always give me more blogs to read... my bloglovin' is not pleased with me for adding more blogs, but when you find fabulous ladies to follow what can you do!

  7. I agree w/Kileen that it's very tricky to pull off skirts/dresses w/boots. I can't describe it. I can only know if it's right when I see it. I'm not a huge fan of this combo b/c I think it looks bulky. Normally, I prefer the skirt/dress to be above the knee to rock boots w/it. and then it depends on what kind of boots too. Very hard to get just the right proportions going.

    My faves: Kileen and Jeanna from Third Floor Closet.

  8. I am a true fan of the skirt/boot combo. I wore it to work yesterday! Also a fan of this feature. Love it!

  9. Thanks for using 2 of mine. I kept putting this on my to do list and thought I had more time. I always do. I forget that I need to be quick. I'm pretty sure those would have been the 2 outfits that I would have sent you. I skimmed through and I've done a dozen or more outfits with boots but those outfits/pictures look the best.

  10. Thanks for posting my photo! This is a cool feature - I'm in!

  11. I love seeing everyone's looks and thank you for using mine!! I love the idea of a monthly feature- count me in!
