Pink & Yellow

IMG_0761.jpgIMG_0747.jpg

Happy Hump Day my loves!  I hope you all are having a great week so far.  I have been embracing spring colors like they’re going out of style, and I love the unexpected effect of pairing hues close together on the color wheel like pink and yellow.  This combo would look great alone for an event, with a casual denim jacket for weekend wear, or with a gray blazer for something a little more formal.  I chose to go with gray since it adds a nice neutral touch to the bright colors and makes the bold combination appropriate for nearly any occasion!

In the Spring of Things

IMG_0803IMG_0787IMG_0779

Happy Hump Day everyone!  This week is absolutely crazy for me, but after such a warm and beautiful weekend it’s really hard to complain.  Michaela and I are flying down to Nashville on Sunday, so I have lots of work to get ahead on and the obvious errands and packing to take care of, and I was already starting to feel overwhelmed three days ago!  Luckily spring is the perfect season for easy dressing, and I just needed to toss on a pretty dress and my go-to jacket and we’re in business.

(If you guys have any recommendations for what we should see/do/eat/etc in Nashville we would LOVE to hear them!  Leave a comment here or send me an email at thesolcompass@gmail.com!)

Color Confidence

When Vogue first called Spring/Summer 2017 the season of “color confidence”, you know I was the first one to buy in.  As a lover of color, I was so excited to embrace the warm oranges, bright blues, and bold pinks.  Pretty much every shade of yellow is in right now, from mustard to neon, but since yellow has never been the best color on my skin tone, I chose to embrace its friendly neighbors, pink and orange, in this bold spring outfit.

Saved By The Bell

IMG_0299IMG_0340

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.
