First, I have to give a shout-out to Valerie of The Style Files for giving me the idea to wear this snakeskin print top with my pink skirt. I needed something to wear for this week’s Trend Spin Link Up of brights and I’m pretty sure this skirt is the brightest thing I own. But I also needed to wear the brown boots I had on yesterday for the Take One, Pass It On Challenge. So, I went with brown and pink. It’s a fun combination, yes?

Two ways to wear brown knee high heeled boots

These two outfits show you that wearing knee high boots under pants is a great way to get two uses out of one pair of shoes. Plus, in the winter the extra height of the boots gives you some extra warmth on your legs, too! So, don’t think that just because you have knee high boots you can only wear them skirts or over skinny jeans. Wear them under your dress pants, too!

Oh, and speaking of this bright pink skirt, while searching for a similar one to which to link, I realized that Jones New York was having a 40% off everything sale. I love the color of this skirt but it’s always been a little irritating. It’s not lined which makes it difficult to wear over tights and it’s gotten a bit too tight recently. So, I ordered a new pink skirt. I’ve never bought anything from Jones New York before, though, so we’ll see how it fits! Hopefully better than my current one so I can wear bright pink more often.

P.S.  In the interest of full disclosure, I did NOT wear this to work today. I put this outfit together and took photos before I looked at my calendar for the week (or checked the weather). I am, however, wearing this snakeskin print top with a black suit to a professional organization meeting. You’ll see that outfit on Thursday. Which is probably when I’ll actually wear this skirt outfit.

    Thanks for the shout out!! :-) That made my day! And your outfit looks FAB! The skirt pops so well! (I never really shopped at Jones New York till I wandered into their outlet and found their clearance section and got a fun blazer. Cute stuff for the office!) And I love the tip on wearing boots under pants..I need to remember that!

    The very first thing that came to mind when I saw your picture was, “Whew, SOMEONE is brave! Bare legs today?!” Hahaha. I only have one pair of tall boots that I rarely wear (they’re a nightmare to get on…and I’ve thought about buying a better pair of tall boots, but $$$. And the boots I have were free [...hand me downs from my mother. Vintage! :P ]), but I do tend to wear my shorter boots under pants instead of over pants. I like the idea of doing it will tall boots as well! Now, I just need to get myself a pair of tall boots that fit well…
