What to wear to Harvesting For Education? Carolyn from Pineapples here in Vero Beach put together three great fall looks. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the temperature will be between 61 and 79 on November 15 th . The store is located at 3241 Ocean Drive and has many on-trend looks to choose from for your wardrobe. Watch the weather and choose something that suits your taste.

If the evening is warm, Candace from Seaside had this suggestion for men. The light weight shirt and shorts are by Frescobol Carioca and modeled by Brandon Putzke of Treasure Coast Percussion. The store is located at 3001 Ocean Drive in Vero Beach and you can shop online at www.seasideverobeach.com
