Hi everyone! Sorry for the long-overdue post! Last week was pretty busy for me, and there were some mishaps in the photography for my blog pictures so I had to redo them, which resulted in one less post than usual. I've been on the hunt for this french hen sweater from J.Crew since it debuted in J.Crew stores in 2012 because it was love at first animal sweater sight. I mean come on, a hen wearing a bright pink beret?? That's right up my alley of too adorable to pass by. I love the layered look of sweaters and button downs for the fall (yes, the extreme prepster still lives deep inside of me), so I paired it with my favorite gingham top from Uniqlo. Of course, my fall palette isn't complete without some olive green and a pop of pink (again - but let's be honest...the pink beret pretty much didn't even give me an option to not use my pink Stella bag and to put on some bright berry-pink lipstick). 

What's your favorite animal sweater for these cold weather months? Please do share so I can start a zoo in my closet :) Thanks for reading, and I'll be back Thursday with another post - promise!
