More Thanksgiving Outfit

Thank you for all of the wonderful comments on this outfit, I truly am thankful for all of my followers, I really feel this fun and flirty ensemble reflects the true me and isn’t that what clothes should be about?

I do love the ruffled sleeves on this semi sheer blouse. Much like my flared pants it helps balance out my upper half. It also adds a certain feminine flair and is so much fun to wear!
