Muneka Townes bright and bold Texas style makes her stand out in Grand Forks.

Wearing bright coral pants, Muneka Townes' colorful fall look was an eye catcher.

She paired her bright pants with a tan sweater, a coral undershirt and matching coral and cream accessories. Strappy gray wedges and a gray clutch completed the look.

Townes, a Texas native, moved to Grand Forks to complete her doctorate degree in higher education at UND. She said her bold styles make her stand out in Grand Forks. But, with a bright, friendly personality, Townes would stand out anyway.

She's moved from Texas to Michigan, to Florida, and said she likes the change and looks forward to moving every two years.
