Today's Outfit - Fruit Salad

I simply couldn't resist this Scattered Fruit Sweater from Talbots! It is something that I can wear now because it's a lightweight sweater which we are still wearing here in New England, but it reminds me of the tropics. Plus it's super fun to wear and a great conversation piece. And you know how much I love a pretty and preppy look. I think this sweater does the trick!
