Today's Everyday Fashion: Boots with Skirts

You may recall that I first styled this dress for summer with white and orange (see here)! The cold-weather version in today's post was my dinner reception outfit in North Dakota this weekend. I tend to feel awkward in boots and a skirt, but this outfit felt pretty good. I've had several people ask about wearing boots and skirt for work, so I took a look back at some old posts for inspiration, below. Several of the skirts are far too short for work, but the general gist of these colors and shapes are what I would recommend. Do you wear boots and skirts together? How do you style them?
