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!

Groutfit

Hello everyone, happy Friday!  While I was playing softball in high school and college, the ‘groutfit’ was an athlete exclusive faux pas that resulted of an emergency gray sweatpants + gray sweatshirt pairing.  Today, however, I wanted to create a monochromatic ensemble with gray that was understated and chic, not born out of desperation to put on warmer layers during an outside practice!  I added my favorite black booties to keep the ombre effect going, and a burgundy bucket bag for a pop of color.

Outfit Details – Sweater: Banana Republic | Skirt: Banana Republic | Booties: Coach (old, similar here, here, and here) | Bag: Topshop (old, similar here and here) | Lips: Bite Beauty ‘Fig’, Marc Jacobs ‘Pretty Thing’ | Nails: OPI ‘Suzi – The First Lady Of Nails’ | Nails (toes): OPI ‘Barking Up The Wrong Sequoia’

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you all have a great weekend!

Floral Fall Dress

IMG_1310IMG_1282IMG_1316IMG_1300IMG_1311

Hey everyone, happy hump day!  I am absolutely loving floral dresses for the fall, including this one I last wore here.  It looks great with a pair of white sneakers, like I wore in Newbury, nude heels, or some heeled booties like I wore here!  I love how this blush leather jacket pulls out the lighter hues to completely lighten up the whole look.

Tuesday Ten: Fall Finds at Nordstrom

Hey everyone, welcome back!  Over the weekend I perused the Nordstrom website for a bit longer than I would like to admit.  Among all the gorgeous fall finds, these are the ones that stood out to me the most!

One: Fisherman CapTwo: Plaid ScarfThree: BandanaFour: Triangle Stud EarringsFive: RobeSix: PajamasSeven: Bell Sleeve Dress |  Eight: Crossbody BagNine: Block Heeled BootiesTen: Faux Leather Tote

One: Fisherman Cap I have been seeing hats like this one pop up everywhere from high end street style to suburban sidewalks.  As a bonafide hat lady, I am 100% on board.

Two: Plaid Scarf Do I really need to say anything about this one?  Plaid and scarves are two must haves during autumn, so why not combine them into one?!  I love the colors in this one.

Three: Bandana I am all about keeping the bandana trend going, and I love the orange color in this J.Crew one!

Four: Triangle Stud Earrings I love triangles and I have been looking for some fun gold studs to add to my small earring collection.  Also, the price point is gold.

Five: Robe I love my bathrobe, but it’s very lightweight and not very warm during the winter months.  This gorgeous UGG one would be perfect for getting out of the shower on colder days!

Six: Pajamas Another necessity when the temperatures drop is a solid pair of pajamas.  These ones come in several colors but I love the soft rose shade!

Seven: Bell Sleeve Dress  If you have any fall weddings, showers, etc you can buy this dress now and thank me later.  I love the attention to detail and the bell sleeves, but the color is just eye candy.

Eight: Crossbody Bag I am obsessed with the fact that a basic primary color such as ‘red’ is a fall trend this year.  The detail and texture on this bag is gorgeous and perfect for the whole season, straight up into the holidays!

Nine: Block Heeled Booties Another trend I am super into is white booties.  I’m not 100% convinced that I can pull it off, but these are so beautiful I may just have to give it a try.

Ten: Faux Leather Tote I use a tote bag to lug my work stuff around every.single.day so a seasonally appropriate piece like this gorgeous burgundy one is high on my fall shopping list!

What are you all looking to purchase now that fall is officially here?  Let me know in the comments!

Who What Wear Dress

IMG_3128IMG_3164IMG_3181IMG_3143IMG_3139IMG_3148IMG_3185IMG_3166

Hey everyone, happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  I wore this pretty dress over the weekend to a vow renewal ceremony for one of Bryan’s best friends, and no one could believe that I got it at Target (0 for 4 all day, which always happens with my Target finds!)  I love the soft lines and how instantly pulled together I felt after putting it on!  I got so many compliments I can’t wait to pair it with a pair of heeled booties in the colder weather (it was 86 degrees and scorching sun while we were taking these photos… Yay New England!)  Make sure you check out how one of my favorite bloggers Ashley styled it here!
