Welcome back!  After a much needed holiday break traveling to visit both sides of my family, I decided to take another week away from blogging, for the first time since August of 2014, to take a step away from the total internet immersion and decide which direction I want to take The Sol Compass in the upcoming year.  Fashion will still be the primary category, but I would like to start bringing in more topics that I experience in my daily life that I’m sure you all do as well.  For now, I’ve added some more pages and tabs on the top menu that you can explore while you’re here, with hopes of making them more technologically advanced and visually appealing in the upcoming months!  Any and all comments and feedback about what you’d like to see more of are greatly appreciated!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope your new year is off to a happy and successful start!

Super Snow


With a never-ending series of snowstorms up north, I’ve been in constant need of some cute, warm, and waterproof footwear.  My Sperry Duck Boots have made quite a few appearances (last seen on Instagram and the blog), but with three feet of snow, sometimes I need a boot with higher coverage, like my reliable Hunter Rain Boots.  Add in a pair of warm fleece socks, and my feet stay warm and dry all day long.  Seriously, it was four degrees while I was standing in the snow in these pictures and my feet were warm and dry the whole time!  I’m also taking advantage of any chance to wear red and blue to celebrate the Pats Super Bowl win on Sunday!
