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!)

Cobalt Cues

img_9077img_9065img_9051

Happy Hump Day loves!  Obviously I took these pictures before we had three snowstorms… Now if I tried to shoot at this location I’m pretty sure there would be nothing but snow and muddy snow behind me.  Even with the snow and the cold I am just so over wearing jeans, a sweater, and boots that I’ve been veering far away from the winter norms and dressing a tad seasonally inappropriately.  Spring and summer are definitely more my style seasons, since I will never get tired of wearing skirts and dresses the way I get tired of wearing jeans and boots.  So what’s a girl to do?  Throw on a pair of tights, of course.

Winter Sky Blue

img_8276img_8278img_8295

The color of this sweater is a perfect combination of a clear blue winter sky and freshly fallen snow.  So naturally I had to pair it with the darkest color imaginable.  I will probably never give up incorporating contrasting elements in my outfits.  I think the black helps the light blue pop much more than a traditional blue jean would; just as the snow pops effortlessly against the elements of nature.

2017

img_7548 img_7556

Hey everyone, welcome back!  I hope you all had a great holiday season and that your year is off to an excellent start.  2016 was a great year for me.  I traveled to a few new and a few old places, ate lots of tacos, and continued to fall more in love with this great big beautiful world around me.  I’m so excited to write 2017 with even more love and tacos.

While I’m kicking off this year with an outfit post, I would love to hear what you guys want to see more of on the blog.  I have a few Disney posts to share with you about outfits and meals, plus I’m starting Whole30 on Sunday to reset after the gluttonous holiday season and vacation.  If you guys have any interest in following along as I do it (or if there’s anything else you want to see more of) let me know in the comments below!

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.

Outfit Details – Tee: LOFT | Skirt: J.Crew | Heels: Sole Society | Collar: Bauble Bar | Earrings: Treasure&Bond (sold out, similar here) | Lips: Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in ‘Noble’

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful holiday tomorrow!

Cozy in Camel

img_6435 img_6456

You guys might recognize this sweater from last year; I had it one repeat in real life and featured it on the blog here.  This is definitely my favorite turtleneck I own.  It somehow manages to keep my neck warm while still being much more fitted and slim than other turtlenecks tend to be.  I love it so much that I broke it out a little early this year to pair with my new favorite heels, and will probably go back in for another color this year!

Are there any items on your Black Friday shopping lists I need to scoop up for the winter?  Let me know in the comments below!

Fall With J.Crew

img_5452img_5383img_5330

J.Crew has been knocking it out of the park this season.  Every time I look online or stop in one of the stores I find myself swooning over all sorts of classic reliables and new pieces.  Luckily now that J.Crew is being sold at Nordstrom in addition to the J.Crew and J.Crew Factory lines, I have three options to find my favorite brand.
