Teddy Coat


Hi lovelies, happy Monday! I’ve been searching for a fluffy statement coat for a while now, and I expected myself to find a fitted long tan number that I loved, but my sister bought this glamorous pink one and I knew it would be the perfect third piece for winter! Whether you’re a jeans or dress lover, I think it’s the perfect way to add a touch of fabulous to your January uniform.

Merry & Bright


Hello everyone, welcome back!  I always like to have at least one red dress for the holidays, and this one from Express caught my eye instantly.  I love the sheer sleeves, the polka dots, and the long sleeved silhouette most of all!  Paired with my new favorite Dolce Vita booties, it has the perfect amount of festive flair!

Wearing Blush in October

Hey y’all, welcome back!  Today I want to talk about ways to wear your lighter colors through the fall. I think it’s one of my responsibilities as a blogger to not only tell you what items I think you should add to your closet, but more importantly ways to wear those items again and again.  Midi skirts are a staple in my wardrobe, and therefore I love finding new ways to wear them as late as my bare legs will let me!  So if you ever bought a blush pleated midi skirt because of me, this post is dedicated to you.

My first step was these fabulous leopard booties, and then paired it with this maroon sweater.  With the blush anchored in darker hues, it blends it seamlessly through a see of October colors!

November Spots


Happy Hump Day guys!  This leopard print scarf is back and I’m not even a little sorry about it.  I could probably keep finding more ways to wear fall’s favorite print, but I’ll try to find something new to share with you first ;).  Seriously though, whether its an all neutral outfit or one of my favorite fall hues like burgundy or olive, leopard is always the perfect pop to add in an accessory.

How the West Was Won


Happy Hump Day guys!  While most of my looks are heavily based in my New England roots, every once in a while I find inspiration from travels, movies, pop culture, and more sneaking their way through.  A combination of planning a trip to Texas and watching the Magnificent Seven resulted in this ensemble with my all time favorite denim jacket and two of my favorite fall pieces-the bandana and the felt hat.  I have to tell you, I definitely don’t hate it.


Outfit Details – Sweater: Who What Wear | Jacket: Lucky Brand | Jeans: LOFT | Booties: J.Crew Factory | Hat: Banana Republic | Bandana: J.Crew | Purse: Vera Bradley (now on sale!) | Lipstick: Urban Decay ‘Weirdo’ | Lipgloss: Urban Decay ‘Liar’ | Nails: OPI Washington DC ‘Pale to the Chief’ | Nails (toes): OPI Washington DC ‘CIA = Color Is Awesome’

Thank you so much for reading!  Have a wonderful day!

I used to be hugely against leopard print- I think I always just associated it with the Jersey Shore and couldn’t fathom the day I would actively want to wear anything leopard.  After seeing it done tastefully enough times over the years, I decided to embrace it- my leopard print flats are a staple in my wardrobe now (last seen here and here)!  I’m a big fan of Sole Society, and when I saw this leopard scarf on their website for only $30, I knew it would work its way into my wardrobe sooner or later!  The pattern is the perfect pop of fun and excitement to an all neutral look.

Blush | The Sol Compass

My unintentional style theme for the month of September so far has been mixing and matching- starting with summer and fall trends and now into professional and casual wear.  I love the contrast between the feminine lace of this long and conservative pencil skirt and the dark denim of a tied chambray shirt.  I find below the knee skirts are often unexpected on early 20somethings, and I think the fun chambray keeps this outfit youthful and unpredictable.
