Love this combo, feminine touches like the pattern tights and skirt, but warm with tall boots and comfy LONG cardigan, the longer the tops the better. One things would add - warmers to go between the boots and tights
Sew top of jeans onto skirt material. I used an old pair of jeans & an old skirt. Its so much easier with an old skirt just make sure you get the hemline correct before you sew it together. (BW) perfect for those too short girls skirts too!
