Sweater Weather

Fall is my favorite season, after a blazing hot summer in Texas there is nothing better than enjoying a brisk morning with a cozy sweater. I have been working on this idea for a drawing since last Fall, an illustration to celebrate the arrival of sweater weather!

I love the drape-y open front cardigans

                or  the more classic button down with a cute print and contrast color.

  I also really love a touch of embroidery, it makes an ordinary sweater a little more special...

My heart shaped embroidery pattern was inspired also inspired by DIY post from One Sheepish Girl, her sweet floral pattern is awesome!!!
This drawing initially started as a sketch, but then I decided it would be better to draw it digitally. 

I'm so excited I'm going to Arboretum tomorrow and I'm taking my sweater!! 
What have you got planned for this weekend?
