Colors of Fall in Keene

Happy Friday everyone!  Today’s outfit is just celebrating all the beautiful colors of fall.  You may remember last year I wore a lot of deep jewel tones throughout the fall (almost exclusively aubergine, burgundy, olive, and navy), but this year I’ve been doing a lot of matching my outfit to the colors outside.  Over the weekend, while B and I spent a few hours in Keene, NH I wore purple, a color I have always associated with October and Halloween!

Outfit Details – Shirt: Old Navy | Jeans: Lucky Brand | Booties: J.Crew Factory |

Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?  This is the first time in about four years that I’m not going to Manhattan for the New Yorker Festival, but I have a very different trip planned instead :).  Make sure you follow along on Instagram (@thesolcompass) and Snapchat (@chummer17) to see where!

Sunglasses Case Giveaway!

Hello everyone, welcome back!  A big congrats to Karla for winning last week’s Starbucks giveaway!  It’s so much fun for me to celebrate The Sol Compass’ third birthday with all of you!

 

This next giveaway is the product of a great need I have, and B’s unwavering patience.  My sister and I have been hoarding sunglasses in troves over the past two years, and we were recently brainstorming ways we could store them safely and functionally.  Luckily for us, B stepped up to the plate and tried his hand at creating a storage box for us, and the result was this beautiful handmade wooden box with a felt lining, to protect those lenses.  It’s one of the first items Bryan made for the Etsy shop he’s starting and today, I’m giving one away to you!  (Sunglasses not included, sorry ladies).

To Enter:
1) Follow @thesolcompass on Instagram!
2) Follow @thinkwoodthoughts on Instagram!
3) Leave a comment on this blog post when you’ve done both to officially enter!

The giveaway will end on Sunday at Midnight EST, so enter fast!

Thanks for stopping by and for always supporting The Sol Compass!

Lemon Print Shorts

Happy Hump Day my loves!  Last week you may have seen me post on Instagram that I did some major damage at LOFT, including these adorable lemon print shorts.  Lemon prints have been absolutely everywhere this spring, and LOFT is definitely in the game with this halter dressone shoulder top, scarfsleeveless top and even no show socks!

My two favorite blogger outfits featuring the lemon print trend are Hallie (featuring the aforementioned LOFT scarf) and Blair styling an Anthro dress!  I love the way they both mixed stripes with lemon prints and incorporated their own personal styles into the trend!

Printed shorts are a must have for me during the summer.  They are absolutely perfect for weekend trips to the zoo on hot summer days!  I know these lemon ones will be on constant rotation over the next few months!
