The last time I wore my thigh-high boots with a mini, I went through some major self-examination on whether I was too old to do this.
I've worn these boots with pants every other time since then, but on Friday I thought I would be bold. Be bold, or go home, I say!
The keys to making this office-appropriate:
- dark tights
- dressy fabrics
- formal cut shirt and vest
- the boots are neither hooker boots nor pirate boots.
I quite liked the look, which is basically the same: shirt and vest with some funky/jangly accessory:
lovely and versatile blouse, my denim button-up vest, and the cool metal belt Mom bought me in London a few years ago.
The mini is a nice tweed - it's been in the "shall I keep it?" area for a while, but since it's my only mini skirt, I think I'll keep it.
No stuff picture as I was in a hurry after work.

We met up with a bunch of friends for dinner and drinks, then headed up to the Art Gallery for another Urbanite event. The theme was Asian-inspired so I dressed appropriately:
That's my brown suede skirt. Unfortunately, I spilled a vodka martini all over it at the end of the evening, but it's one of my machine-washable suedes, so no biggie!
I loved how the lacy tights highlighted the fabulous Fluevog Mini Qtees:
I wore my leather cuffs doubled up.
