Making a LWD New Again


Hello my loves, happy Friday!  This LWD is a few years old, but I came across it the other day and was suddenly determined to wear it again.

On Wednesdays…


Hello everyone welcome back!  Today’s post features my current favorite t-shirt AND skirt.  I don’t naturally gravitate towards ruffled blouses, since I am so heavily a t-shirt gal, but I can 100% get behind a ruffled skirt.  This t-shirt is a Madewell x Girls Inc. collab that is everything and more.  It’s super soft and lightweight, comfortable, flattering, and donates 25% of the retail price to Girls Inc.  So to put it mildly, it’s everything.


I can’t wait to style this skirt even more ways this year (last seen here!)  I think it would look so pretty with a red and white striped top for a little nautical vibe!

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!

Tropical Textures

Welcome back, loves!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  I’m so excited that the weather is finally consistently warm out that I’ve been celebrating the only way I know how – shopping for new clothes to wear on patios and rooftops, clearly.


This beautiful Banana Republic skirt instantly caught my eye.  I love the length, the pleats, the pattern, and the colors.  I chose to pair it first with a lace top, to add some nice textures to mix up my look.  To make it more work appropriate, just add a pair of closed toe heels and a navy blazer!

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!

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!

Floral Friday

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you all enjoyed your short week and are ready for another weekend already (I know I am).

Along with the berry skirt from Wednesday’s post, I picked up this floral skirt from J.Crew a few weeks ago.  The print is vintage and yet refreshing at the same time, and to boot it is beyond comfortable – I wore it last night for my baby brother’s high school graduation and didn’t feel the pinch of having one too many gyros for lunch at all.  Oh, and did I mention it has pockets?  You’re welcome, ladies.

Outfit Details – Skirt: J.Crew | Tee: Banana Republic |

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!
