One of my favourite things about winter is being able to wear skirts from any season with boots/tights or ballet flats & leggings. This is also a good way to justify additions to your skirt collection because there is no time of the year you can't wear them. Then, by association, additions to your boot collection are also completely acceptable! Even if you're not ready to go shopping just yet, window shopping online is the next best thing...and I've done some of the leg work for you by collecting a few skirts that I'm loving at the moment from some of my favourite online shopping websites.
I want them all, and I haven't bought any (yet) which I think shows a particular level of restraint on my part. Really loving the leather panel on the Forever New `Joline'. I've always wanted a leather skirt but I don't really want to part with that kind of cash when I could just buy another pair of leather boots instead. This way you get some leather but it's not overpowering.
I'm not going to hide the fact that I love Birdsnest...to bits...I just wish they would do free shipping! But aside from that, they get in stacks of new brands and stock all the time and their website is great to browse by filters such as body type. You can also answer a bunch of questions and get tailored recommendations anytime you're stuck for inspiration.
I've saved the best part for last, the Styled Outfits section, which they update all the time and if you're in a hurry you can add the entire outfit to your shopping basket and you're ready to go. Love.
I haven't actually done the whole outfit thing yet, I just like browsing them for ideas as there are SO many! But, if I were to take the leap, maybe I should go out and buy the "Fraggle Rocker"...ignoring the clothes altogether, I'm loving that name!
