Hello everyone, welcome back!  Do any of you have any exciting plans for the weekend?? Michaela and I are heading to New York again for some beach and family time, so make sure to follow along on Instagram and Snapchat (@chummer17).

I love pairing together colors close on the color wheel, and blush and red are no exception.

Saved By The Bell

Happy Hump Day my loves!  Today’s outfit is brought to you a few hours early of tonight’s date night.  I’m heading down to Connecticut for work and brought B along as my male model (which was a fun change of pace, since he’s used to being behind the lens ;)).  We’ll end up being there until rush hour, so instead of sitting in bumper to bumper, we found a restaurant to host our weekly Wednesday date night.  Hesitant that my work outfit was not entirely appropriate, I found this beautiful spring top at Ann Taylor to bring, along with these reliable Steve Madden heels from last summer.  Saved by the bell sleeve.

Lighter Leather

I know I have said ad nauseam how ready I am for spring, but this week I decided I had to take advantage of one more opportunity to wear leather.  I bought this skirt on sale at the end of January, so it didn’t see the full fall/winter season of wear.  Does this mean that everyone saw me wearing it once per week for a month?  Yep.  Do I feel badly about it?  Not even a little bit.

Outfit Details – Sweater: GAP | Skirt: Ann Taylor (sold out, similar here) | Heels: Sole Society | Purse: Vera Bradley | Necklace: Elizabeth and James | Bracelet: LC Lauren Conrad | Rings: Bauble Bar, Banana Republic | Earrings: Treasure&Bond (sold out, similar here) | Lipstick: Kat Von D ‘Cathedral’ | Lip gloss: Marc Jacobs ‘Sugar Sugar’ | Nail Polish: OPI ‘Madam President’

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Navy and White

img_9711img_9715

When I first wore this blouse I mentioned that I couldn’t wait to wear it with white jeans.  Well, true to my word, I really couldn’t wait to shoot this nautical combination, even if it is a tad early.  I also wanted to make sure I showed you all how the blouse paired with pants while it was still in stock!  I chose to slip on these blush flats I have been loving, but if I waited until Memorial Day I would probably pair it with some navy espadrilles and a red crossbody bag.

While celebrities and influencers were posting snowy and picturesque Instagrams over the past week, I was just happy to tango with the real sun back here in Mass.  It might be a little seasonally premature but I was so excited to have a few days wear I could wear these pieces I picked up at the mall this month.  You all know I love a good leather skirt (this post is one of your all-time favorites, and my favorite midi skirt has been worn here, here, and here), and this forest green color is such a pretty alternative to black.  I can’t wait to find new ways to wear this pretty blouse; I think it would look great at a seaside restaurant with white jeans and a pair of espadrilles in the summer!

Splash of Bordeaux

img_5851 img_5842 img_5864

Welcome back!  In today’s post I wanted to put a spin on this jacket that I traditionally pair with navy or black (like I did a year and a half ago here).  I’ve also been challenging myself to find fresh ways to wear white after Labor Day while looking seasonally appropriate, like I did in this post last week.  A white top on white bottoms is a great way to accent another color, such as this seasonal favorite bordeaux.

Pleats Please

Happy Monday and welcome back!  If you’ve been following The Sol Compass for a while now, you may know that I love pairing a simple tee with a more formal skirt.  Last week I went outlet shopping with my mom and scored this navy v-neck and orange tank for only $21 total at the Banana Republic Factory Store with the promos they were having – and with shirts this soft you just can’t ask for better than that!  I was planning on wearing my navy heels with this, but the weather was so nice over the weekend that I just had to break out my sandals while the weather still allowed it.  Plus it gave me a chance to show off this amazing new color polish from the OPI Washington DC Collection on my nails and toes!
