While May is statistically the rainiest month for Texas, April has already gotten its fair share of grey clouds and downpour. Heck, I just got woken up at 5am today by the loudest storm of 2017! Before we get into it, let me introduce Diversity Chic to you if it’s your first time here:
“Diversity Chic is a collaboration of Dallas bloggers showcasing current fashion trends on a variety of skin tones, hair colors, body types and heights. Each month we will feature a new trend tailored to our personalities and style.”
You guessed it: this month’s theme is April Showers! My first thought this stormy morning was having to grab my rainy day gear both for me and Sky, and it’s usually a struggle when it comes to my outfit. Here’s why: I hate hoodies. I have one full-zip one which I hardly use (not even sure I know where it is), I have one denim one (which is actually kinda cute but not practical for rain), and a Star Wars pullover (which I only love because it’s Star Wars and I DIY-ed it, but it’s more for the gym). I usually have my hair up in a ponytail, and that hairstyle is just not hoodie-friendly for me. Plus anything too small rides up, and anything too baggy makes me look frumpy. I also think NOT having a hoodie makes me get a bit more creative when it comes to styling!
1. Yoga pants: they’re built to absorb any moisture much quicker than your usual fabrics, and if you pick a black pair, nobody can tell if your bottoms are wet!
2. A light rain jacket: great for layering, and perfect for these Texas rains that somehow tend to be warm!
3. Baseball cap: I have colored hair to protect, and hoodies don’t really help that. Baseball caps help keep my hair DRY!
