Geneva Sundays: Spotlight on Scallops

On Sunday, the sun was finally shining (we hibernated and deep cleaned on Saturday because it was simply TOO cold to be outside), and after I lectored at mass, we decided it would be the perfect day for a little photoshoot in downtown Geneva. We hit up the French market and walked through the historical district. Then we walked over to Penrose Brewery, and coincidentally ran into our friends Stephanie and Nate!

I've always loved this light blue midi skirt from Loft (it's old, but here-- omg the scallops!here, herehere, here-- stunning, and here-- those pleats! are some similar ones!). It's almost the same color as my new scalloped sandals from Talbots that I'm IN LOVE with! I was trying to think about how to style my new shoes, when I had a brainstorm about tying a gingham shirt in the front with my light blue skirt and the light blue shoes. Thanks to Lauren for the inspiration-- she has such a cute style with tying shirts over dresses for work! (Side note: I paid about $30 for this J. Crew Factory gingham shirt and wear it year-round. In the winter, I layer it under sweaters for an added warmth. Then, I wear it in the warmer temperatures dressed up or down).

These shoes are TO DIE FOR (mine are "surf")!  I stumbled across these beauts while trying to find a Talbots shoe that my mom has for a past post. I couldn't find her exact wedges, but I instead found these darling kitten heels. We waited for the price to drop, and my mom ordered them on her Talbots card for points (and I snail mailed her a check, haha! Very high-tech). When they came last week, I was in LOVE!

It just so happened that my Essie toes matched almost identically! 

They come in gold, silver, black and nude patent, and a few other suede options. With the next sale, I am totally going for the blush suede shoes. They're just beautiful! And extremely comfortable-- I walked all around our town in them with no problem. They'll be adorable with white jeans, too! (FYI, they are TTS!).

My tote for carrying our farmer's market loot is by Out Of Print. It was the cutest gift from my mom! I actually got Mike socks in this same library card print for our wedding (since it was literary themed!). 

This red and blue striped jacket is "vintage" Banana Republic (lol! that's what the employees said in the store when I had it on!). Mike bought it for me after I seriously looked at it (longingly) online every day for about 4 months straight. Pathetic!  But, they've currently released a similar version, without a collar, at Banana. I love the pink in this one!  Also, it's on sale!

My scalloped navy crossbody Kate Spade purse was a gift from Mike for completing my master's degree last year. I absolutely adore it! It was the most perfect bag for gallivanting around Geneva yesterday, but it still held all my stuff with no problem! It's from last year, but here, here, here, and here are some similar styles.

The topper to this outfit was the jewels. I wear my multistrand pearl necklace SO much. It dresses up any outfit! It ALWAYS goes on sale at J. Crew Factory. I've heard some people say the quality of the J. Crew Factory multistrand pearl necklace is not as good as the J. Crew version, but I will politely disagree with that! Mine was a gift from my dear Jackie F. about 3 birthdays ago, and it is in mint condition, even with me wearing in 2x or more a week!

My arm candy is assorted, but here-- these anchors!, here-- on sale, here, here and here are a few of my favorites. The more the better, in my opinion!

Our Geneva French Market finds and my fabulous Out Of Print library card tote!
