Fun Fact about yours truly: I am a sucker for anything that is perfectly matched. On Monday when this post went live, a friend came up to me and said “I know why you love that skirt so much-because it matches your hair!”
She may have a point. My suede skirt that I love so dearly does match my hair, just like today’s blazer so perfectly matches my skirt and my glasses match my top here. Matching is one of those things I know I can always fall back on, because it pulls a look together even when I’m not 100% feeling the ensemble. This plaid skirt could go with so many things, but on a Monday morning you can bet I’ll fall right back into the routine of matching black and red (the color combo I’ve apparently loved this winter time and time again…)

While I’m definitely 100% okay with leaving winter behind, I am a little upset about leaving this skirt behind. The suede trend has been one of my favorites this year, and this skirt always makes me feel like a million bucks when I wear it. Especially with tights. There’s just something about putting that extra effort in to wear tights that just totally elevates an outfit to the next level, especially when everyone around you is hiding behind jeans and boots. Or at least that’s what I’ll tell myself every time I curse the cold wind blowing straight through them.

These Preston frames are possibly my favorites of my Warby Parker trio. I love the rounded yet rectangular shape, and the Maraschino shade is the perfect vibrant boost for drab winter days or complement for the bright colors of summer. These are the epitome of circus inspired fun, as I mentioned in this post. As always with Warby Parker frames, the price is just right. So even if you don’t want to wear red frames every day, they make an excellent extra pair to have at an extremely affordable price!

There may not be flowers sprouting from the earth quite yet, at least in Massachusetts, but I am more than ready to start incorporating them into my wardrobe! My sister and I both have this Cynthia Rowley skirt (twinning on Instagram here) and our different styles are a perfect example of the versatility of florals. I wore it with a navy sleeveless blouse over the summer, which unfortunately was one of the shoots I lost when my computer crashed, so I wanted to try it with this bright pink sweater from Banana Republic. In a mild attempt to mellow myself out (since technically it is still winter), I made sure to add a plethora of navy in to the ensemble to properly winterize the look.

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! It was so gorgeous out in Boston this weekend I had a perfect Saturday walking around the Seaport, finishing the day with a stop at my favorite Mexican place, Rosa Mexicano. It was so nice being able to walk outside comfortably without winter clothes on!
Cobalt is by far one of my favorite colors to wear. It’s bright and vibrant, and yet appropriate for any situation. As promised, these circus inspired frames from Warby Parker’s spring collection add the perfect touch of excitement to any outfit, even a standard professional look like a white collared shirt and black pencil skirt!

As promised, today I’m styling my first pair of glasses from Warby Parker’s Spring Collection! These frames totally speak for themselves and I love the statement they make while the Oak color can be paired with just about anything, making them extremely versatile. Sometimes I find my statement making accessories are hard to incorporate into every day wear, but that is definitely not the case with these specs! I already have approximately 17,621 outfits in my head I want to wear them with. All of which will undoubtedly vanish at 5 o’clock on Monday morning when I need them, but alas. You win some, you lose some.
Blush and olive were never colors I wore much of in the past, but I have suddenly found myself embracing their versatility and hoarding them in large amounts. I especially love them paired together with the tortoise shell print of these glasses. As someone who gravitates towards black frames all too easily, the subtle pattern adds some fun dimension to an otherwise neutral look.

One of the lofty dreams I had when I first started this blog was being able to work with brands I love to share amazing products with people. I’m constantly excited and blown away by the opportunities the cultivation of this internet space has presented to me.
Warby Parker is the epitome of an inspirational brand to me. They create a chic, stylish, and functional product (prescription glasses and sunglasses) while adhering to their “Buy a Pair, Give a Pair” program. By cutting out the middleman, Warby Parker is able to keep their products at an incredibly reasonable price; sacrificing none of the function or fashion, but gaining the incredible opportunity to donate to VisionSpring.
That quick history lesson aside, Warby Parker’s Spring 2016 Collection is the real deal and a perfect fit for The Sol Compass. As the biggest color lover around, I am loving the bold hues and lively frame shapes. Inspired by the circus and still 100% tasteful enough for daily life, there’s a pair for every free-spirit. (I actually have this weird obsession with the old fashioned circus, and have a huge list of circus themed literature I adore, if anyone is interested). That being said, circus inspired eyewear for the fun-loving individual is right up my alley.
If all the new styles look too good for you to possibly decide, one of my favorite Warby Parker features is the Home Try-On Kit, where you can try on five pairs of glasses for five days and pick which one suits you best. Be sure to use the hashtag #WarbyHomeTryOn on Twitter and Instagram, so the WP team can find you and tell you which pair suits you best!
I’m sharing some of my favorite images from their beautifully inspired lookbook here today, but check back in soon to see how I style some of my new favorites!
