If there’s one trend that comes back every single spring season, it’s pastels. No matter what else is happening in fashion, you can ALWAYS expect to see an influx of pastels come March. Unfortunately for me, I’ve always been a ghost so I don’t exactly gravitate towards pastels (except my hair).
So why did I suggest pastels for this month’s Diversity Chic? I will never know. We DID get yogurt as part of the shoot though, and I’m all about that.
Right off the bat, I knew shoes would be the anchor for my outfit. I actually purchased these heels to go with my bridesmaid’s dress for a wedding I was in. Since they’re the perfect soft peach, I knew I had to bring them back out for this shoot!
Now let’s talk about this shirt, y’all. I know. I can’t even deal with it. Thankfully my husband has a huge man crush on Jeff Goldblum so he had zero issues with me ordering this bad boy (and actually told me he was going to try to steal it!) The all-over print is absolutely perfect, especially paired with the 90’s geometric accents. Not to mention the shirt is crazy comfortable.
To dress it up a little, I paired it with my faux leather pencil skirt and heels. If you have a crazy graphic t like this, I always recommend pairing it with things that are a little more “grown up” so you look pulled together. In my opinion, even untucked with a knit pencil skirt would be a better option than wearing it with leggings or jeans. Also if I’m going to spend $55 on a t shirt I’m NOT going to look like a slob while I wear it!

Now that Diversity Chic has a few months under our belts, can I just say how thankful I am to be a part of this project? We have so much fun doing it and it’s really such a joy to be able to come together and show how no matter what your skin color, body type or personal style is, you can rock any trend!
