At the moment I am going through a massive skirt phase. I have learnt (from trial and error and one-way fights with the mirror) that my body shape doesn't suit skinny leg jeans whatsoever, yet I love a decent boot for winter and prefer to show off the boot, than hide it beneath bootcut jeans... so I have compromised... skirts it is! In particular those that sit a fraction higher on the waist, and subtly balloon out.
My particular favourite:

I adore the seafoam colour, the fabric in which nenee has used and the over all design concept - so cute! I also am quite in love with the little leopard print cardigan that she is paired with the skirt.. purr...!
Teaming a skirt up with boots is pretty much fool-proof. The art of pulling it all together is not to over do it. A busy skirt with loads of pattern and colour, does not require a really chunky in-your-face boot - ew, too much for the fashion brain to comprehend! I like my boots to be chunky with some studding, fringe or lace up - I don't opt for the skin-tight boot, I prefer them to slouch and look loved!
