Anthro Field Scout Skirt

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
-Belt-Nordstrom (BP)
-Siri Knee-High Boots-Loft
-Tights-Gap Outlet
-Ring-Forever 21
-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!


  1. Pretty outfit! I like the color combo.

  2. Jenni, I love the color of the skirt. Your entire outfit rocks!! Your hair looks pretty curled.

  3. Hooray for such an awesome deal on the Field Scout Skirt - it looks great with the deep purple!

  4. I love the orange! You did a good job of making it winter-y. Good find!

  5. This bright orange DOES look great with the deep purple. This also reminds me of Jan's Halloween outfit, where she topped off her Compeer dress with a dark plum. I love how the combo looks on both of you!

  6. I love seeing all of your different color helps me a lot, since I love color also!

  7. What a deal on that skirt! I love it paired with the plum.

  8. I love this outfit on you! I agree, the skirt is a bit bright but you've pulled the look off great and the items you've paired with it are perfect!
