Gingham Goodness

IMG_3456IMG_3417IMG_3439IMG_3472IMG_3418

Hey babes, welcome back!  In a sea of plaid flannels, this gingham popover from J.Crew really stuck out to me this fall.  The gorgeous green is such a nice change of pace from conventional fall colors (which you all know I love!) and the blouse has a nice different silhouette than the button up.  To keep my look anchored in the season, I paired it with these rust booties from Sole Society that I have been absolutely obsessed with ever since I got them!

Do you have any plans for the weekend?  I’m heading out to Springfield with my parents and sister for family weekend at baby bro’s college, and then early celebratory festivities before my birthday on Monday (eep!)  Whatever your weekend brings you, I hope it’s filled with laughs and happiness!

Breaking Plaid

To file under “shows B is still trying to convince me to watch”: Breaking Bad.  Plaid, on the other hand, is something we can both agree on.  When we first started dating, B exclusively wore flannels and jeans on the weekends, and his car even has plaid seats.  Needless to say, I think B was born for fall.

On that same subject, I raid Old Navy for updated flannels every September when the cool air rolls back in again.  (If you don’t believe me you can see examples here, here, herehere, here, and here.  Phew!)  While most flannels have some navy in them (at least the ones I gravitate towards!), I loved that this one was exclusively white and navy.  I originally planned on wearing it with my purple pants, but after I ordered these olive ones I knew they would be perfect together.

Outfit Details – Shirt: Old Navy | Pants: GAP | Purse: Target | Boots: Target (old, similar here, here, and here)

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!

Who What Wear Dress

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!

Last Minute Thanksgiving Outfit

I think one thing everyone has in common is having to throw an outfit together at the last minute for one holiday or another.  Luckily Thanksgiving has a much more flexible color palette than some other holidays (looking at you, Christmas…) so it’s reasonably easy to pull something together with items already in your closet.

I usually think of warm oranges and earthy browns when I think of Thanksgiving, but this year I have been loving deep jewel tones so much that I broke out this reliable navy skirt and a soft tee (my favorite pair!) in navy and jade.
