Black for Everything

IMG_9180

Happy Friday my loves!  We all know the LBD is the ultimate closet necessity, but I’m going to take it one step further and say you could definitely benefit from having more than one (just hear me out).  I have a fitted scuba dress that I LOVE (seen here and here, similar here), but sometimes it seems a little forced for more laid back activities.  Enter the fit and flare.  Perfect for anything from shopping to brunch, this little eyelet number will make your casual events this summer an absolute breeze with a pair of fun shoes, denim jacket, and aviators!

Sweet Like Lemonade

Happy Friday my loves!  With this unexpected heat wave this week, I have been embracing light colors and airy fabrics as much as possible.  You may recognize this yellow skirt that I wore nonstop two summers ago from this post and this post, so I decided to bring it back with some pink accents this time.  Yellow is one of spring’s hot colors this year, so I was able to find similar styles herehere, and here.  I was pleasantly surprised at how well it pairs with a variety of colors, from olive to pink.

Earth Tones

Welcome back my loves! I have had hiking on the brain since last month, I guess it was just a matter of time before I started to show it in my outfit. I am always so anxious to get outside in the spring (as much as my allergies/sinuses may resist me), I’ve been dying for the weather to catch up with me! Until then I’ll be over here wearing skirts with sweaters and jackets until my legs no longer freeze…

Love At First Stripe

IMG_0944IMG_0919

Happy Hump Day!  Today is the second outfit post of my sister trip to Nashville.  While I was on the Abercrombie & Fitch website searching for this dress, I found this striped shirt and instantly fell in love with it.

Nashville has these B-cycle stations all over town.  They are a great and affordable way to get out and explore more of the city than you may have been able to on foot!  The best part is you can just drop them off at whichever station you end up at, which is super easy since they seem to be everywhere!

The Parthenon is possibly best known amongst those my age and under from its cameo appearance in Percy Jackson, but it is an incredibly impressive full-scale replica of the original Parthenon in Athens.  It’s situated right in the middle of the beautiful Centennial Park, a place I could spend days in with ease.

Pink & Yellow

IMG_0761.jpgIMG_0747.jpg

Happy Hump Day my loves!  I hope you all are having a great week so far.  I have been embracing spring colors like they’re going out of style, and I love the unexpected effect of pairing hues close together on the color wheel like pink and yellow.  This combo would look great alone for an event, with a casual denim jacket for weekend wear, or with a gray blazer for something a little more formal.  I chose to go with gray since it adds a nice neutral touch to the bright colors and makes the bold combination appropriate for nearly any occasion!

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!)
