What I Wore on College Tours
Goal: Looks motherly, but not matronly. Ha! And, blend in, but in an elevated way.
Really, I didn't overthink this, but did think it could be a fun post. What to wear on college tours. This trip was about the aspiring college student and I just wanted to be available and kinda blend into the background until needed. Also, it was about 1,000 degrees so I was really more concerned about my comfort than my style. Sometimes I forget how old I am and dress a little under my age. I would be pretty embarrassed if I was dressed like college students so I did give that a moment's thought. And, I quickly realized, that I do not walk around in biker shorts and sports bras so I was good.
The first day I wore this Amazon Dress which was so, so cute. And, for only $30, I let the fact that it had no pockets slide, but I realized about 5 minutes into the tour that pockets are a must on a college tour. This would be a great dress for church, any school event and even a Game Day look.
On day 2 I wore a Milton Dress. It beat the heat like it was designed to do and, even better, it had pockets. My phone was in and out of that pocket so much I don't know how I survived without pockets the day before. The gingham I wore was on-trend, but not trendy. I love gingham as an elevated, casual neutral, perfect for the activity. There is exactly ONE left and it can be seen here. See more colors and availability here.
I found a few other pieces that would work great for college tours and they are linked below. Happy hunting!
