I was wearing the below outfit today, and my friend said to me "You always dress proper ... not like a pilgrim proper ... but proper, put-together."
So that being said, halfshirts don't always need to go with booty shorts, or on stage at a strip club (but note that there's nothing wrong with that!) ... they can be worn on the street, with high-waisted shorts ... pants, whatever. Transform an old flannel manly looking shirt into a cute, girly halfshirt. I dare you.
The point is to have fun. But I guess I'm grateful I don't look like a pilgrim in the process.
