Crochet + Choker

Happy Hump Day my friends!  Today’s outfit features another bell sleeve top – for someone who was hesitant of the practicality of this trend, I sure did buy into it full force over the past month (you may remember this top I wore two weeks ago).  These sleeves are just so darned pretty I figured I’d take the gamble on dragging them through ketchup… Or maybe this is a good way to convince myself to start eating salads???

My sister and I are in Tennessee right now, so make sure to come say hi on Instagram!

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!)

What’s Old Is New

IMG_0696.jpg

Happy Friday everyone!  Today I’m sharing a look I wore earlier this week when it felt like summer out!  I was honestly not prepared to dress for the warmth, as many of my 85 degree appropriate clothes are still in storage!  So to improvise, I wore this olive skirt I paired with tights over the winter and this old pink top from Banana Republic.  Add in my new favorite shoes, and these old pieces felt brand new.

Welcome back everyone!  With such undeniable signs of spring this weekend, it felt like the perfect time to start showing off some of my favorite spring combinations.  I love the combination of slouchy trousers and a structured blazer this time of year, especially in these gorgeous spring colors!

Freshen Up

img_0035img_0011img_0037

Happy Hump Day my friends!  I hope you all enjoyed this week’s Monday with Mac!  While we were out shooting and running errands we spontaneously decided to start a vlog!  We know pretty much nothing about vlogs, but I love the video editing I do for work and Michaela makes really great GoPro videos of our vacations, so it feels like a next logical step to take the blog to the next level.  If any of you have any advice please send it our way!

With every little spring tease, I’ve been trying to bring more hints of warmth into my outfits.  I’ve been seeing so many outfits in my head with yellow heels that I went on a hunt to find a perfect but affordable pair.  I first ordered this pair from Steve Madden, but when they came in they were a little more mustard colored than I wanted, so I ordered these Charles by Charles David Pact Pumps (more sizes available here) and I could not believe how obsessed I am with them given their price point!

Cobalt Lace

J.Crew is hands down one of my absolute favorite stores, which is probably pretty apparent when reading my outfit details on this blog.  That being said, I cannot help but roll my eyes at some of their prices.  This has made me an absolute master at navigating their sale section and feeling like a sly sneaky little shopper who manages to get items like this gorgeous dress and the skirt from last week’s post at 75% off the original price.

Blush and Orange

IMG_0445IMG_0447

I keep bringing back blush items over and over again this spring, and for someone who has historically never worn a ton of pink it seems rather strange.  Blush is so versatile and just soft enough that it doesn’t overpower the way a cotton candy or a bubble gum pink might. This skirt is such a soft and muted tone that it lets the orange top do all the talking, but I think it would be just as fun of a look with a more saturated pink skirt-who doesn’t love a good burst of color in spring?!
