Today's Everyday Fashion: Multiple Choice

I totally forgot I had this shirt. Or rather, I haven't worn it in so long, it kind of faded into the back of my closet. This inspiration photo reminded me so much of it though, I had to pull it out of the back of the closet to replicate this outfit. I went with a standard re-creation in the middle photo - but on the far right I'm showing how you can use what you have to make it work. Do you have a similar shirt, but pants only in a different color? Switch it up. Fashion isn't just a one-answer, it's multiple choice!

What are some of you "make it work" moments? Which color pants do you prefer? I like the outfit in the middle, with the hair on the right. (I can't stand my hair in it's natural, wavy state!)
