My instinct it to go with a white button down with a gray cardigan. I think the gray in the cardigan (or even sweater, depending on the style) would really make the gray in the skirt pop and everything would blend together nicely. I would say go with black for the boots, but since that isn’t an option, you’ll just have to try on both pairs and see what you like best. For the tights, I’m thinking black. (They don’t have to be plain either. A subtle pattern or “cable knit” pair would add some good texture. If you ever decide to wear heels with it, a pair of pantyhose with a seam would create a cute vintage look.)
Wow! I typed a lot! :P I hope this helps!

That is how I typically wear it: a white button down and a gray cardigan, with black or nude pumps. I have two pairs of perfectly nice boots, though, and I’m desperate to incorporate them into my work wardrobe!
I’m not looking to add a pair of heeled black boots to my wardrobe at this point for a couple reasons. First, I have big calves and it’s hard for me to find boots at all. Second, when I buy staple pieces, I buy quality, so the boots will be a major purchase.
I bought a pair of seamed stockings, but I just stopped biting my nails, so by the time I had them on there were so many snags in them it looked like I’d been attacked by a wild animal. Manicure, then delicate stockings.posted about 2 years ago
The navy pullover and the riding boots might go together well, since you’re looking for a different way to wear it with boots. If you’ve got some yellow accessories, those will help pull everything together.
Hahaha! I understand about the delicate stockings thing! Although usually it’s the rough chairs at school that get mine.
