This simple fall outfit is fun for a chilly day. Wear the shirt untucked for a pop of color under the sweater. The matching red wayfarers help tie it all together. This can be casual, or a little dressy depending on the shoes. If you want to dress it up even more, wear some sexy pumps and you're ready for a date night.
I'll be the second contributor to this blog. I hope that together Angel T. and I can make this as well rounded as possible.
I ascribe to the "Make It Work" school of thought. I believe that you can make things work, be it interpreting runway looks to fit your budget or size or just finding your voice and identity through fashion. I also believe in blending styles and not letting anything tell you who you should be, instead speak about who you want to be.
Stay fierce and make it work!
