I'm not going to lie, I've fantasized about raiding the Olsen twin's closet on more than one occasion--especially during their "bag lady" style days. I mean floppy hats, comfy sweaters, flowing printed skirts, and ankle boots are all things that I love. With that being said, while going through my past posts, I couldn't believe I've only ever styled one boho-chic outfit on here! So I've decided this fall I'm going to try and rock the bohemian look a little more frequently. Especially while I'm out perusing the city, because admittedly I've gotten some major street style inspiration from NYFW this year. So I figured why not start today while I was down in South Side hanging out at my favorite coffee joint, Big Dog Coffee.
Sips & Style
For my Pittsburgh readers who are also caffeine lovers, if you haven't tried Big Dog Coffee yet I urge you to immediately. This hidden gem, on 2717 Sarah St., in South Side seriously serves the best brews in the Burgh (coffee & tea, no booze). The atmosphere is also light and laid back, so it's the perfect place to go whether you are just grabbing a cup of joe with friends, working on your blog, or if you're studying for that big exam. So due to Big Dog's chill vibe, I couldn't help but think it was the perfect place to show off my new bohemian garb, and of course grab a cup of their new white peach tea.
The one fashion trend that I've been anxiously awaiting to style this fall is none other than the cold shoulder sweater. The reason why I love the cold shoulder trend so much is because it's chic, fun, and versatile! For instance if you wanted to go for a glam look just pair one of these babies with some black moto pants and some velvet heels for a night out. And though I decided to pair this comfy cotton sweater with a high-low skirt for a boho babe vibe, I could totally see myself styling it with my favorite pair of cropped skinnies and ankle booties in the very near future.
Next up, is this pretty SLATE necklace, compliments of my other sponsor Rocksbox. The reason I decided to pair it with this look was simply just to add some extra shimmer to my outfit. I just love the geometric pattern and thought it added a touch of elegance to my otherwise laid back look. Also note, if you like this piece, you can snag it and many others from Rocksbox for a whole month free. How? Just use my promo code "starkravingchicxoxo" when you sign up! Want more info?

Lastly I want to talk about how darling this high-low skirt is, which I paired with my very comfy ankle booties. As soon as I saw this skirt on SheIn I just knew I had to have it in my wardrobe. I adore the airy, dreamy vibe it gives as well as the pretty geometric/floral print. It also goes great with my ankle boots, which I normally pair with cropped skinnies but figured I'd switch it up for my day downtown! I also love the fact that like the sweater, I can make several outfits using this piece. I mean, I'm already planning what cute cropped cami and mules I'll pair with it when I head down to Florida on the 7th to visit my beau. (Come to think of it, this skirt paired with a bikini top, sandals, and a sun hat would be perfect for strolling around Delray Beach!)
