Today's Everyday Fashion: Booting the Problem

Fall is in the air, and as the weather turns crisp each year I struggle with one question: how do I wear my skirts in the colder months? My go-to shoes are usually a pair of pumps, and while there is always the option to add tights, those won't keep you very warm on a super-chilly day. That's why I immediately loved this idea of wearing slouchy boots with a pencil skirt! It's a little bit Western, still professional (for most work environments, always check your own dress code at work), and the best part is that this look can extend the life of your skirts so you can wear them in the winter! Tell me - do you wear skirts in the winter? What are your favorite tricks for weather-proofing skirts during the colder months?
