Before I started this blog, I pretty much exclusively wore bright colors regardless or trends, seasons, or other fashion rules. As the years have gone by and I started to pay much more attention to trends and protocols, I couldn’t help but notice the special associations seasonal colors have. This spring I dabbled in a lot of pastels, a way to tone down an outfit without losing any edge or excitement, and this fall it’s been a series of deep jewel tones such as olive, navy, burgundy, and aubergine. The dark hues are seasonally appropriate, but their rich shades still allow some of that bold expression that I love.

Happy Monday and welcome back! If you’ve been following The Sol Compass for a while now, you may know that I love pairing a simple tee with a more formal skirt. Last week I went outlet shopping with my mom and scored this navy v-neck and orange tank for only $21 total at the Banana Republic Factory Store with the promos they were having – and with shirts this soft you just can’t ask for better than that! I was planning on wearing my navy heels with this, but the weather was so nice over the weekend that I just had to break out my sandals while the weather still allowed it. Plus it gave me a chance to show off this amazing new color polish from the OPI Washington DC Collection on my nails and toes!
