Fall Layers and Ankle Boots

Casual Skirt and Ankle Boots

Sometimes, Austin provides the most perfect weather imaginable. To me, that weather is chilly enough for tights, but not so cold that I have to wear my giant winter coat. Sometimes, when it’s 105 degrees in Austin, I wonder why I live here, but then there are days like this one! Days when I can wear this outfit!

The full skirt is a little tricky. It’s a tad long, and therefore requires a little lift in the shoe realm. I of course never miss an opportunity to wear my ankle boots, but I am thinking of perhaps hemming this baby just above the knee so that I might get a little more wear out of it. The fullness in combination with the length makes it somewhat more challenging than a nice neutral denim-colored skirt should be. Luckily I could pair a relaxed sweater, scarf, and a tweedy blazer and tights with it to balance it all out. Summertime options with a full skirt are a little less plentiful!

Now it’s off to finish my latest newsletter before figuring out what to wear to the Morrissey show tonight (the most exciting night of the year).

    I like the button-down skirt! It’d look good hemmed too. Maybe it’d be more versatile that way? I really like the color of your tights with that skirt too.

  6. I love this outfit, your boots are fantastic. I love the last photo of you & the little puppy!!

    Already read on twitter you’re still high on Morrissey. You lucky one 😉
    Great skirt and layering!

  8. The puppy is great – but it’s your facial expressions which are your best accessory! Seriously, though, adorable puppeeeeee …

    Oh my gosh! Austin weather sounds perfect! It’s only like that here for a very brief period of time. I’m already wearing my winter coat…and scarf…and like 20000 pairs of socks. I really like your skirt and your blazer. The colour is gorgeous!
