30 for 30 | 11: Skirt + Boots pt. II

Sweater: F21 | Skirt: Cynthia Rowley | Boots: Report | Tights: Target | Earrings: F21 | Scarf: apt. 9

Skirts and boots part two! Shorter skirt + a little knee action = infinitely better. Huge thanks to Bella and Kimmie for showing me the error of my ways. :) So yeah, definitely digging this a little more than my last attempt, but I have to say I'm not sure it's "me." Practical in the winter, sure, but I prefer my skirts with heels.

IN OTHER NEWS I'M GRADUATING ON STAR WARS DAY.
As in May 4th.
As in "May the Fourth be with you."
3 months 18 days. Who's counting?

  1. I'm a fan of boots and skirts in winter myself, but each to their own! Love that jumper on you, looks so warm and snug. I only heard that 'may the fourth' thing for the first time last year - and love it hahaha! :)

  2. Sam, yeah I like part two better with some knee action going on there ;-), cozy winter look with a twist of elegance. I am with you when it comes to skirt with heels ;-)

  3. I think this look is really cute - I love skirts with boots in the winter, although heels are always a winner too. The sweater looks so cozy too, and that skirt is gorgeous!

  4. 1) you look excellent, i like the skirt+boots combo
    2) may 4th was my wedding date! [1st wedding anniversary this year, woop woop!]. when i picked the date, i obviously had no idea but some of my [star wars obsessed] coworkers/friends couldn't stop saying "may the fourth be with you" among their congrats! so, may, uh the fourth be with you when graduating!

  6. Love this skirt+boot combo! And I'm glad I could help. :) Congrats on your (upcoming) graduation, what a great milestone!

  7. Okay, this is the second time today that I've heard of Star Wars day. I told my intern that I was in a wedding on May 4th, and he said, "Star Wars Day!" I looked at him blankly. He then said, "May the 4th be with you." I felt pretty stupid for a minute, and then I realize that I've never watched Star Wars. I felt a little bit better.

    Moving on, I really love your hair (in every post). And those earrings add a fun, different burst of color.

  8. I think this looks great, but I can understand the boots versus heels argument. I thought if I got some nice boots I could do more skirts and such, but I'm unsure if I can really pull it off.

    Also, everything about the shoulders here looks so beautiful. staaahp it.

  9. Great skirt - love that it's colourful, but still versatile.
    I'm all about boots and skirts - they've been my go-to for the last few weeks and I usually like the skirts to hit either at the knee or a bit below.

  10. I have a similar skirt from Loft in a darker blue tone. Maybe I should pair it with a purple sweater! May the 4th be with you cracked me up!!

  11. I saw on Fran's page you're feeling uninspired with this 30x30. Total bummer. I know you've got some great looks in you, and really like today's outfit. I think the skirt, boot, knee ratio is perfect here too!

  12. May 4th is My Birthday so that is a special date. Congrats. I will certainly NOT Forget when you graduate. And who is counting... exactly? LOL

    I actually love and wear Pencil Skirts with Tall Boots. But best I prefer Sweater Dresses with Tall Boots. You look great. This is one of your Most Unique Outfits in your 30 for 30 so far. Love it.

  13. I agree, this look is better than the first attempt! I am a huge fan of boots and skirts. And I love the way you tied your scarf!

  14. I love this look! Boots with skirts are my favorite... mostly because I don't wear a lot of heels :) And I went back on my comment from the previous post and I hope it didn't sound like I was saying YOUR outfit looked weird, because it didn't! I was saying that when I did it, the boots-meet-skirt felt weird to me.
