In Case You Missed It

I kept this suede skirt from Zara on repeat all last fall and winter (here, here, and here).  It was definitely one of my best buys last year, being both affordable and versatile (is there anything better?!) for months of wear.  When I was at shopping at the Wrentham Outlets with my mom a few weeks ago, she picked up this beautiful olive cardigan to wear with a classic white blouse and camel skirt.  As always, I had to take inspiration from her and pair this steal of a sweater with this beloved suede skirt.  Any opportunity to wear more olive and suede you know I’m the first in line to sign up for.

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!

Underneath the Tree


Holiday Season is in full swing this week!  One of my favorite results is the constant excuse to don a killer pair of heels or a little extra sparkle for any (and every) occasion!

This year, I’m all about separates for my holiday outfits.  As much as I adore holiday dresses, I’m even more obsessed with the idea that by dressing in separates, I’m building my future wardrobe for the rest of the months to come as I mix and match the pieces to form a plethora of different looks!  For this weekend, I’m loving this cozy snowflake sweater and green skirt to stand out from the sea of black and red.  With extra pops of color I think it really makes a statement that’s festive but individual all at the same time.

This look can easily be recreated or replicated with currently owned pieces, so get to repurposing those wardrobes people!  Make sure to use the hashtag #compassclosets so I can see all of your holiday looks over the next week!
