This past Friday, I was absolutely delighted to be back on my old stomping grounds in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. The weather was just so incredibly nice that it just seemed silly not to take advantage of it, and I have to say it was just so great to get outside for a bit and get some fresh air (while it lasts) after being cooped up in my office all week. However, the real reason I was strolling around the Boulevard of the Allies was not only to enjoy the lovely weather, but because I actually had a meeting with my admissions counselor at Point Park University about getting me ready for classes on campus this fall.
As I am sure many of you have assumed, I am absolutely thrilled to be back in college! However, I'm even more thrilled to be heading back to campus and that I will once again be calling downtown Pittsburgh home for another 6 years (FYI, I am going for my doctorate). With that being said, I have to say that visiting Point Park's campus really put me in the mind set and has gotten me even more excited! Considering this made for an all around perfect Friday afternoon, the beautiful weather just added to my already high spirits, so I decided to wear this darling, boho shift dress from my sponsor, Amazon Fashion's Joeoy.
The reason that I just adore this bohemian shift dress, is because of its colorful patterns and fun nature. This dress is a perfect choice for both spring and summer due to its casual appeal and vivid colors. I also love this piece because it is light and comfortable, meaning that even during the dog days of summer this dress would be a great choice to keep you cool. To style this casual dress, I chose to simply pair it with one of my favorite brown totes and a simple pair of brown sandals. Though I do love dressing up, I have to say I am totally stoked to start styling some more casual college looks in the upcoming months!
To add some finishing touches to this casual look, I decided to pair this bohemian dress with a simple, hemp choker, and my grandmother's gold hoop earrings. The reason I chose these pieces is because much like the dress, both of them are fun, chic and casual! I also took into account that if I wore a longer necklace (think my Kendra Scott Drop pendant) that it would either get lost in the design of the dress, or take away from the tie-neck detailing.
