Aaaaand it’s the last day of August. How did that happen?! I feel like the year JUST started. All of a sudden fall fashion is emerging and the all the kids are back in school. It’s starting to be quite the busy time of the year, but I’m glad I always get the chance to hang out with these beautiful ladies I call friends! I’m not gonna lie guys– initially I thought this month’s theme would be EASY for me but I chose this outfit at the last second! But before we discuss any further, if this is the first time you’re seeing Diversity Chic, here is a tidbit:
“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.
Our focus is to explore the world of fashion in its unique, diverse, and stylish manner – one trend at a time.”
Either you love it or you hate it– that’s one thing I know about people’s views on 70’s fashion. I personally like it, especially if we’re talking about the bohemian side. I love doing decade themes because it can be quite challenging– you want to pay homage to a certain vintage style while trying to avoid it looking like a costume and have it be something you’d really wear. I will say that I have used and abused this romper this summer and wore it so many different ways. It’s actually quite embarrassing, I saw an American Eagle Outfitters employee wearing it and she looked GORGEOUS. I immediately went on a hunt all around the store (because I mean, how awkward would it be to say “hi, yes, I’d like to purchase THE EXACT SAME THING YOU’RE WEARING.” I get that that’s why the employees do that, but… it’s still kind of embarrassing. There was only one medium left, which I took as a sign that it was destined to be mine. It’s just insanely comfortable, and the print and ruffle trim definitely reminded me of the 70’s!
