WIW: Chunky boots to the office

We've had a bit of icy weather, and I really needed to wear something grippy today.  As I have been for the past week, I started with the boots (The boots that nothing goes with in my work wardrobe), but today, it finally came to me how to balance them out.  Super dark tights, some black socks layered in, and this outfit, which you've seen so many times.  I considered taking some fancier booties or flats to change into, but figured what the heck. WHY BOTHER?

I'm in my own office most of the day, and the crappy weather dictates it (so long as it's not raining, I'm OK with my choice LOL!).

Here are my newest babies...I'm going to be one sad somebody when boot season is over.  Around here, I may get another 2 months...if I'm lucky!

    Perfect "balancing act", Von. I love the tougher looking biker boots with your pencil skirt and fun plaid belted vest. I'm holding thumbs you'll be able to wear your new pretties just a little while longer;-)

    This is a sleek winter outfit and I like the touch of turquoise at your neck.

    You look fantastic. So pulled together. Just love those boots and you did a great job balancing them out. They don't look overly chunky to me, actually. Fryes? Love those.

    Great look.

    Are those the Veronica Shorties?  I wonder if they've changed the soles a bit because I find mine incredibly slippery on icy sidewalks.  I do walk on a lot of bricks and cobblestones though, so maybe that has something to do with it. 

    Love the outfit!  I think the boots go perfectly.

    Great outfit and love the boots.  There was no need for you to change out of them.

    Want to lengthen boot season!  Move to Chicago!

    Seriously, those boots are buttery soft AND tough -- a great combination.

    Wonderful look. 
    Plus bonus points for proper seasonal congruence.
    (what is the opposite of seasonal confusion?)
