Yellow J. Crew Factory Tulip Hem Dress!

I saw this dress on the J. Crew factory website in mid-summer, and I knew I had to have it for back to school! The colors are just gorgeous; I love mustard yellow with navy.  I paired it with this navy tassel necklace that I got on sale at the J. Crew Factory at the Aurora Outlets. In total, my dress and necklace were $47 (with a $20 coupon I had). This dress goes on sale every few days! The bottom hem is tuliped; it's such a unique detail. I loved that it was long sleeved because my classroom is a little chilly (BUT IT'S GLORIOUS TO HAVE GOOD AC!). Have you heard of the Geneva Festival of the Vine? It was going on over the weekend, and it is adorable! There are wine tastings up and down 3rd Street, little vendors and craft booths, tons of delicious food, sales in all the stores/boutiques and live music. It happens every September! 

Specs: Kate Spade.
Just bought new specs with my friend Amy at 3rd Street Eye Care! I can't wait for them to arrive. I also tried to get contacts, but I am DEATHLY afraid of touching my eyeballs, so it has been really hard. Haha! #shameful #IcantseewhenIdontwearmyglasses #onedayIwillgrowup

Lip color: Mac Impassioned.

Red purse: old (2011) Kate Spade. Similar cross body option.
Loving this bow
This is just like my camel TB! 

My Toms booties never fail me!  They are currently on sale for $71!

I matched the bike!
(This pic was taken right before I nearly fell over with the bike...oops, haha!).

Loving the blue mustard pattern for this shirt and this scarf^^. 

Some more fun tassels from J. Crew factory here, here and here. All on sale! Just got these earrings in gold and crystal. 

Navy tassel necklace: J. Crew Factory.

My favorite earrings: Kate Spade, compliments of my bff Courtney. She gave me these in 2012 when I read at her wedding. Cute yellow finds: here, here-- convertible! and here-- hello! $5!.
Watch: Michael Kors.

How cute is my man? 
The man behind the cam! So incredibly stylish.

I love that we can finally open the windows and turn off the AC.  I absolutely love the heat and summertime, but something about the chill in the air just makes me excited for the months ahead and seeing my nephew experience every milestone! How are the temps in your neck of the woods?

PS: We babysat my Goddaughter Bryn and cousin Jack overnight this weekend, and we took them to a park in downtown Geneva to play. A sweet woman who was there with her family approached me and asked if I wrote a fashion blog. She wasn't entirely sure if it was me, but I am SO HAPPY she said something! It totally made my day! Made me so happy that my blog is reaching people I've never met before. Thanks so much for reading, you guys!
