I love creating new outfits from what I already have in my closet. The easiest way is with uncommon layering. I got inspired by this photo of layering a plaid shirt over a dress.
I decided to just go with it. I actually, didn't have it tied up like that the whole time. I had it loose with a belt. But I thought it was a cool get up. I even tried the outfit out again, but instead of tights and heels, I paired them with some brown fuzzy boots.
