OOTD : Maxi Skirt for Cold Days

I love wearing maxi skirts in cooler weather! I think the thicker maxi skirts can sometimes get way too warm in summer. I've been wanting to shoot this outfit since last year but lost this skirt in my overcrowded closet! Alas, I have found it and I hope you enjoy!

I got this grey maxi a few years ago from Target and love wearing it with tights and some boots on those cold, hot cocoa, days. I paired it with a fitted, burgundy, long-sleeved top I got from H&M. Since it was cold out I thought a big, over-sized, scarf was in order. I went with this patterned scarf I picked up while in Morrocco. I think it adds some rich hues to a simple outfit like the one I'm wearing here.

I always wear these leather, lace-up, ankle boots with this outfit. I'm still on the fence with the clicking sound they make. Sometimes I think it's sexy/feminine and other times I feel self conscious because my shoes are making a racket. What do you think about your shoes clicking?
 I picked these boots up while living in Firenze.

This outfit is so comfy that I wore it traveling back to NC from a very sad Thanksgiving break at my grandparents. Here I'm wearing it with my beautiful family before leaving my grandpa :[

Who's ready for the weekend?!

  3. I love the sound of clicking shoes, although I imagine it could be quite annoying to others. Your outfit is so simple yet elegant. I really like it.

  5. I think a maxi skirt and a scarf is such a beautiful theatre look :) I love the color, but you can guess that I can't like sneakers with it, because I am such a romantic poor thing :) Well what would you think of these shoes with that outfit : ? :] Ce serait super, secret d'amie.
