About a month ago I was browsing through the weekly "Weekend In-Store Post" on Effortless Anthropologie and saw a comment posted saying there were a few orange Field Scout skirts spotted hanging on the sale racks at an east-coast store for a great deal--only $19.95! I had seen some bloggers wear this skirt before and always thought it was kinda cute...but it was orange! I don't usually do orange. I looked it up online and decided that for $19.95 I was willing to give it a try...I could always return it if it was a dud. I went ahead and did a charge send and a few days later it arrived. When I opened the box and saw the color my first thought was "wow...bright!" It's definitely orange! I know it was meant to be a summer skirt but I thought it would be fun to try to winterize it up so here's what I came up with for church on Sunday:
-Grand Ruffle Tank-J Crew (Spring 2010)
-Grosgrain Cardigan-Loft (Fall 2010)
-Field Scout Skirt-Anthropologie
-Siri Knee-High Boots-Loft
-Bracelet-Twisted Silver (Christmas gift from a friend a few years ago...still love!)
I love the orange mixed with the purple...thanks to Tricia for inspiring this color combination. I think it was her outfit for her brother's wedding that I remembered seeing this same color combo. I'd definitely wear it again.
Today I'm meeting an old friend from high school for lunch that I haven't seen in YEARS!!! I'm super excited to catch up with her and meet her little ones. Also, this is the last week of school for my oldest before Christmas break...gotta make it through 5 more days...we can do it!!!
Hope you have a great day!
