Fresh Picks to Follow – Critter Sweaters


When J. Crew came out with the French Hen Sweater earlier this year, I have to admit, I wasn’t the biggest fan.  I was surprised how insanely popular the chicken got and how quickly it sold out.   After a few weeks, the sweater started to grow on me a little bit.  I started to see it’s styling possibilities and tons of bloggers were also testing it out.  As cute as I thought the sweater was in the stores and online, I wasn’t moved to buy one.  In the end, it just wasn’t for me.  This fall I’ve seen an influx of critter sweaters at various retailers with a wide range of animals and price points.  Whether it’s a fox, a cat, a dog or even an owl, there is a sweater out there with your favorite critter on it. For this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow, check out my top 10 critter sweaters with a touch of whimsy. Have you indulged in this trend yet?  If so, what critter are you wearing? Let me know in the comments.

OOTD: Spotted


I’m so glad that the weather here in Florida has gotten a little bit cooler because I finally get to layer up for a few days.  For today’s look, I copied some of my favorite blogger’s look by adding a chambray shirt underneath my favorite sweater.  I was lucky to grab this little polka dot sweater from Old Navy a couple months ago, but the store is completely sold out right now. I’m just bummed that I didn’t grab this in any other color. I know that there are tons of bloggers and readers out there that have this sweater because it was such a great deal and it’s super cute.  But if you missed out on this one, here are similar styles from some of my favorite retail stores: here, here, here and here.  Did any of you get a chance to buy this sweater or something similar? How do plan to style it?  Let me know in the comments.

OOTD: Twisting Out A New Look


So I decided to experiment with my hair this past week and I took the plunge to wear my hair natural. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, but I was really nervous about what my hair would look like.  I was also worried about styling limitations due to the length of my hair.  I watched a ton of YouTube videos and checked out a ton of blogs and found a style that fit me perfectly.  I wore this twist out style for a week and really I loved it.  I felt confident, free and a little sassy.  However, while I loved my new do, I realized that it’s not the best style for me right now.  As I’ve mentioned on my blog before, my job requires me to travel quite a bit and at this point I need a style that is quick and easy for my lifestyle.  This week, I decided to go back to my braids again because frankly it’s easier to manage and style.  I’m pretty sure that I’ll eventually come back to this look sooner rather than later, but I have to do some more research on alternate hair styles before I can fully commit.  Have any of you experimented with your hair whether it be a color, a cut or a new style that you weren’t real sure about?  Did you change it right away or did you continue to rock it and just deal with it?  Let me know in the comments.
