Better to be prepared for either situation. The solution of course was lots of layers. I wanted something that I could sit in all day but be able to easily adjust the temperature by removing a jacket if need be.
I did not actually wear the boots all day. I switched at work to my Monk shoes - there's a photo in this post.
I'm not sure if I like this a-line style of skirt; it seems to require something other than a jacket on top - perhaps something more feminine.
In the end, it looked a little too tame, so I added my multi-colour paisley scarf. There was quite a mixture of textures and patterns by the time it was all put together.
