I'm just going to start off by apologizing for the cheesy title of this post.
Now that that's done...
Here's a favorite winter work outfit of mine. Everything, including the dress, is knitwear so it doesn't really get more comfortable than this. Whenever I wear all of these pieces together, I stay toasty warm in my office all day even though no one item is very thick. I think that's what makes the whole ensemble work--body skimming pieces.
There are some who would think that high-heeled pointy-toed boots would be inappropriate for work. With many outfits, I'd agree. I think the key is making sure that all other parts of your outfit are modest enough to tone down the boots a bit. (This is actually a pretty good method to use for work in general to keep things professional.)
By the way, I'm working on moving this little blog over to Blogger since I've had so many problems with Tumblr randomly being down, etc. (It really is ridiculous. End of rant.) It's taking me some time since another fabulous feature of Tumblr is that there is no way to export. But stay tuned...when I finally make it over to Blogger, you'll be the first to know!
