Wearing Boots With Skirts

During the chilly fall and terribly cold winter months, I love wearing boots with my skirts. Here are some reasons why.

The Positives of Boots

~They are stylish. You can find casual or dressy pairs of boots.

~They help keep you warm. Wearing that extra layer is nice!

~You can wear any sort of socks with them, and nobody knows! Seriously, I’ll wear thick wool socks sometimes that normally wouldn’t look very good with mary jane style shoes.

~They go well with leggings under your skirts!

The Negatives of Boots

~Cheap boots are normally not comfortable. I can handle wearing my cheaper boots to church, but they are not something I would want to wear all day long. I have a nicer pair of boots that are cushy on the bottom and I can wear them all day, no problem. But it’s hard to invest in good boots if you have a house full of children that need clothes and shoes also!

 Boots can be worn with all different styles and colors! This is a very feminine, lovely outfit with adorable looking boots!

 I’m not a huge fan of pencil skirts, I don’t even own one. But I have to admit this is a really cute outfit!

A midi length skirt looks great with boots. Sometimes I think midi length looks like an awkward length, but it is perfect with boots.

I wear shorter skirts during the winter as I wear tall boots with the skirt and have leggings on underneath.

A few more thoughts on boots…
Shop at places like TJMaxx and Marshalls to find a good quality boot for less money. I always see good deals on boots on Black Friday as well.
If you are looking for a high quality boot, some names to look for are Sanita, Bass, and Keen. If you have other suggestions, leave a comment!
Tall boots go with pretty much any sort of modest hem length (knee length on down).
Ankle length boots are in style, and while I’m not a huge fan of them I know it’s possible to pull them off with skirts. I often see them paired with shorter skirts. Here is a longer skirt outfit to give you an idea of what that could look like.
Ankle Length boots with Skirt
I find that putting boots with a skirt or dress is an easy way to dress up an outfit and add a little fashion style without going overboard. Personally, I stay away from boots and heels that are super high as I don’t feel comfortable in them and I also don’t like the message they send.
High Heel Boots
Shoes can be sexy looking, and I find that thin, really high heels can easily add a sexy look to an outfit. It’s ok to look fashionable, but let’s remember the goal is to look modest first, modern second.

Denim Maternity Skirt for a casual, everyday outfit! Saturday I had a rare day at home alone. It was so nice! Sean had all the children at his mom’s house cutting wood for her, and so I was able to stay home. Originally I had some online work I was going to do, but I shut the computer and cleaned house for the day. I’m so glad I did. It was nice to accomplish a lot without the children around to undo it, and I threw away a lot of trash! Most of it came from underneath my boys’ bed. :)

For those of you who like seeing a more casual outfit, this is what I wore to clean house. A classic denim maternity skirt, and a Ann Taylor top from ThredUP (it stretched a lot so it’s not maternity!).  I don’t wear necklaces everyday during the week, and I try to remember to put earrings on, but some days it just doesn’t happen. I do always fix my hair, and more often than not I will put some sort of makeup on. I just have some light foundation and lip gloss on here – nothing fancy.

A casual outfit to clean house in!  I’m so excited to finally be carrying plus size, higher neckline camis! I get asked all the time about plus size items, and this is a fantastic addition. So many plus size shirts are cut lower, and these camis are a staple for a modest wardrobe.

Plus Size camisole for modest layering option! The full length layering shells are available now in the standard small-x-large sizes, but also in 1X-4X! The 1X seems to fit a size 14-16 well. The plus size camis come in white, black, and beige.

A lovely denim skirt and modest layering cami! Our model is also wearing our very popular Rainbow Denim skirt! She looks classy and modern yet very modest!

Don’t forget to enter the $100 Deborah & Co. shopping cart giveaway! It ends tomorrow! 

What I Wore

Skirt – Rainbow Denim Maternity Skirt

(The maternity version sold out quickly, so it is on pre-order until December as we are making a new batch! The women’s version is still available to order.)

Top – Ann Taylor brand from ThredUP

Shoes – Mary Jane shoes from Zulily

Makeup - L’BRI Pure and Natural (I just had on light foundation and some lip gloss).

Maxi Skirt and Cardigan, second trimester pregnancy outfitI love this maxi skirt. I got it from ThredUP and while it’s not a maternity maxi, it works perfectly right now. The only downside is that I didn’t realize it was a petite skirt! It still looks ok with boots though. My mother-in-law was surprised to see me in boots with heels today. I’m not a huge heels person, and especially not during pregnancy. I have really bad varicose veins, but they didn’t seem to get worse during the time I wore these boots.

I love the second trimester of pregnancy! It's when I normally feel the best! I feel like my hair has been pretty boring lately. I’m growing my bangs out and have to keep them pinned back with a bobby pin. I need to look on Pinterest for some more ideas of what to do with bangs that are growing out!

Mini Flexi Clip from Lilla Rose I did get my hair pulled back in a mini flexi clip. See why I can’t do more elaborate hairstyles? My hair has a mind of it’s own and likes to go where it wants. :)

Having fun during my second trimester! I think I was trying to twirl, and it ended up looking like this. So much for second trimester gracefulness. :) At least I have a smile on my face!

Black boots with a maxi skirt! Black boots and crunchy fall leaves. I love this time of year!

What I Wore

Maxi Skirt – Gap Brand, found on ThredUP

Tank – similiar to Full Length Halftee

Pink Cardigan – Thrift Store (attention brand)

Boots – ThredUP

Necklace – Kohls

Flexi Clip – Mini Flexi from Lilla Rose

Makeup – L’BRI Pure and Natural

Casual Shoes That Go With Skirts

Casual Shoes that go with Skirts!

Please don’t let shoes stop you from wearing skirts! I hear a lot of ladies say they don’t wear skirts because they don’t know what shoes to wear. Let me tell you something…

Growing up we were not stylish with shoes. We wore what we had to wear with our skirts. I went through a a few years as a teenager where my feet hurt all the time. I was fitted for special orthotics, and could only wear tennis shoes with them. So during the week I wore regular Nike or Reebok tennis shoes with my skirts or dresses. Did it look cute?

Not at all!

Did it make me stop wearing dresses?

Nope.

If you have a conviction, and want to dress a certain way, just do it. Don’t let something like shoes get in the way!

That being said, there are good quality shoes that you can wear that look better then then a standard tennis shoe! If you have feet problems, you might not have a closet full of shoes, but if you invest in just a few good pairs they should last you awhile.

These look like comfortable, basic walking shoes, and they are worn with a maxi dress!

A vintage dress with blue Keds! She looks lovely.

Flats from Payless Shoe Stores

These flats from Payless are super affordable, but have really good reviews!

Bongo Woman's Flats

I’ve heard good things about these Bongo flats from Sears. They are not expensive, and the reviews say they are really comfortable. I would wear these everyday or to church.

Floral Shoes (Source)

These are so feminine looking!

Brown Mary Jane Shoes

I wear Mary Jane shoes quite often. You can look through many different styles of Mary Jane shoes on Kohls.

Circle skirt with flats

A lovely outfit with flats.

While spending money on good quality shoes can be an investment, think through how much you are on your feet. Some ladies can get by with cheaper shoes, others have to purchase higher quality shoes. Other good quality brands are Merrell, Keen, Born, and Toms.

Do you want to see what is on my wish list?

Cobalt_Crochet_Women_s_Classics___TOMS

I really want to try a pair of TOMS crocheted shoes! They are so cute.

Winter is coming up on us and it does change the shoes we wear (unless you live in Florida and don’t get snow!). If we don’t have snow outside I will still wear Mary Jane style shoes with thicker socks, but I wear a lot of boots in the winter time. The next post will be about skirts and boots, so stay tuned!

I’d love to hear what your favorite everyday shoes are!
