WIW: playful pencil skirt outfit

I tried Angie's outfit formula for a playful pencil skirt look today, for work. My midi pencil skirt has a slight bubble just past the knee, and my boots are Doc Martens, rather than hikers. But I think this approximates the idea of outfit #2 in her post.

The outfit:
Dark gray ponte pencil skirt (OSKA); navy melange asymmetrical wool pullover with banded (or welted) hem (OSKA); navy tights; navy and gray heather socks; Doc Marten boots.

What do you think? I welcome your thoughts or suggestions!

    The pattern on the Docs is sublime with the colours running through your hair, Sharan.
