Sweatshirt Love

Dressed up, embellished sweatshirts have been on the scene for a little while.  This fall, they’re everywhere and I can see why.  It’s easy to love a trend that takes your favorite comfy, casual piece and makes it perfectly appropriate for just about anything.

Who knew a sweatshirt could be so chic?
