Pleats Please


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!

This hibiscus print skirt from J.Crew is the perfect spring print!  I love how many color options there are to choose from, it would easily look just as good with a white top and black heels as it does with blue and pink accents!  I am such a sucker for a good skirt, but if they aren’t your thing there are tons of other options in this print, including this scarf, dress, top, and shorts!  They are all so perfect for spring I can hardly believe they’re all on sale!
