Water, Fire and Smoke

Yup. So I was gonna have outfit photos from today. I swear. But then I woke up to this:

Yeah. So our water heater decided to spontaneously combust last night and I woke up to a house full of smoke. :( Sux right? Well, at least nothing else lit on fire, and hubby has already fixed us all up with a new water heater.

Anyway there was no time for outfit pics this morning. And I dropped food on my skirt at lunch... so no after work pics. But I do have the polyvore I put together for the outfit.

Anthropologie Marisco Skirt Styling

I love this Marimekko skirt (it was called the Marisco Skirt when sold at Anthropologie). This piece is another one of my ebay stalking successes! The orange, brown and red stripes totally remind me of some sheets my parents had when I was growing up. Plus, those stripes on a blue background offer such visual POP.

Of course what I love about the skirt - it's awesome graphic quality - made it hard for me to figure out what to pair it with. I came across the picture to the left on the color collective and I used it for some color pairing inspiration. I think the green cardigan here really helped tie the outfit together.

I was really happy with the way this outfit turned out. I did make some changes this morning though. I ended up adding a brown braided skinny belt. I changed the tank top to a t-shirt and I wore brown booties instead of the flats because Seattle turned cold these past few days.

Anyone else have this skirt? What would you pair this skirt with?

I do have one pic for y'all. I've been meaning to post this for awhile, but I had the chance to meet up with Cindi from SimplyCindi and Cindi+Chris Photography earlier this summer. We chatted about food, Seattle, jobs, schools. It was super fun. Cindi is such a beautiful and warm individual. I'm sure I say this a lot, but I love how the internet has helped me meet such wonderful people that I probably wouldn't have met otherwise. And seriously, check out her photography with her husband. It's stellar. I wish I had such magic with my camera lens!

Hi Lori,

The water heater situation is frightening. Thankfully, it didn't escalate into a fire. Congrats on scoring the skirt. Great Polyvore. I don't have this skirt. I was thinking the green Cardi plus green flats may have been green overload. So I like that you changed up your plan to include Brown.

I can't agree more about the Internet opening doorways that otherwise would be missed. Especially after I had the opportunity to meet Roxy, Stepanie, Kelly, Jamie, Kavita, Aimee, Alison and Usha in NYC recently.

Hi Lori, I'm sorry to read about your water heater, oh 4 months later... Bad on my part.
We do miss your posts, though. When will you be returning?
