The last time I wore this skirt in The Mustard Mini, I mentioned that I wanted to pair it with tights and boots for make it work-appropriate.  Today I did just that by adding a basic black crewneck sweater, black opaque tights, my Corso Como riding boots, and gold jewelry.  I think that dark tights and boots are always a good way to balance out a short skirt for the office!

Black and gold/yellow/mustard is a great combo for fall, and now I'm trying to decide what others I can pair with this skirt.  I'm thinking gray, burgundy, and maybe olive?  What color would you pair with mustard?
