My Favorite Winter Outfit Formula


Hi everyone, happy Friday!  This winter has been unbelievably cold for a long stretch here in MA, so on Wednesday when the temps reached into the 20s I took advantage of the chance to wear tights again!  I am always cold, but I really don’t love wearing jeans, which makes winter my most frustrating fashion season.  I’m much more comfortable both physically and mentally in skirts and dresses than I am in pants, so anytime it’s warm enough to wear tights I jump at the opportunity!


Outfit Details – Dress: LOFT Outlet – Tights: J.Crew Factory | Boots: A New Day (Target)

Thank you so much for stopping by – I hope you have a great weekend!

Floral Fall Dress


Hey everyone, happy hump day!  I am absolutely loving floral dresses for the fall, including this one I last wore here.  It looks great with a pair of white sneakers, like I wore in Newbury, nude heels, or some heeled booties like I wore here!  I love how this blush leather jacket pulls out the lighter hues to completely lighten up the whole look.

Simple Fourth of July Outfit


Hello everyone, welcome back!  Today I’m sharing a simple and easy outfit for the upcoming weekend.  If red isn’t your color, or you favor yourself a less festive dresser, this outfit is perfect.  I am beyond obsessed with the cute details on this top, from the buttons to the pleats and the hem!  The color goes great with any number of items (you may remember I paired it with these lemon shorts here), but I love the way it pops against all white.


Outfit Details – Top: LOFT | Jeans: LOFT | Loafers: Topshop (similar here and here) | Sunglasses: Perverse (similar hereherehere, and here at different price points!) | Necklace: Elizabeth and James | Watch: Fossil | Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ‘Weirdo’ | NARS Lipgloss ‘Turkish Delight’  | OPI California Dreaming Lacquer Collection ‘Sweet Caramel Sunday’

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Muted Red, White, and Blue


Hello everyone, welcome back!  Today I’m sharing an alternate way to wear red, white, and blue for the Fourth of July weekend, or really at any point during the summer.  I love this combination of burgundy and dusty blue to allude to America’s colors, but it’s less expected than bright red and cobalt may be.  It’s a great way to incorporate the festivities into your work attire the week before!


Outfit Details – Top: LOFT | Skirt: Ann Taylor (old, similar here, here, and here) | Jacket: LOFT (old, similar here and here) | Heels: Topshop | Nail Polish: OPI California Collection ‘Barking Up The Wrong Sequoia’ | Nail Polish (toes): OPI Fiji Collection ‘Super-Trop-i-cal-i-Fiji-istic

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

Lemon Print Shorts


Happy Hump Day my loves!  Last week you may have seen me post on Instagram that I did some major damage at LOFT, including these adorable lemon print shorts.  Lemon prints have been absolutely everywhere this spring, and LOFT is definitely in the game with this halter dressone shoulder top, scarfsleeveless top and even no show socks!

My two favorite blogger outfits featuring the lemon print trend are Hallie (featuring the aforementioned LOFT scarf) and Blair styling an Anthro dress!  I love the way they both mixed stripes with lemon prints and incorporated their own personal styles into the trend!

Printed shorts are a must have for me during the summer.  They are absolutely perfect for weekend trips to the zoo on hot summer days!  I know these lemon ones will be on constant rotation over the next few months!


Outfit Details – Top: LOFT | Shorts: LOFT | Sneakers: Vans | Necklace: Elizabeth and James | Watch: Fossil | Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ‘Weirdo’ | NARS Lipgloss ‘Turkish Delight’  | OPI California Dreaming Lacquer Collection ‘Sweet Caramel Sunday’

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Michaela and I are heading to NYC tomorrow so make sure to follow along on Snapchat (@chummer17) and Instagram (@thesolcompass)!

Hello everyone, welcome back!  Thank you all so much for your positive response to my new “My Boston” series!  Writing a Boston Travel Guide has been something I’ve wanted to do since I was in high school, and I am beyond excited to have the chance to share my neighborhood guides with you all!

I have been seeing ruffled skirts everywhere for the past few months, but none of them spoke to me the way this “bisque beige” number from LOFT!  I love how the neutral color really lets the ruffles make a statement on their own!
