Three Ways to Wear an Animal Graphic Sweater!

I've been seeing this darling fox sweater everywhere in the blogosphere, and it's been so sold out on Old Navy's site for FOREVER. I didn't even bother to stop by the store to see if they had any in stock until a couple of days ago, and lo and behold, they had an abundance! God bless you, Old Navy. And your little foxes, too.

So, much like the blue skirt fiasco, I picked this item up because it was a trendy item (and only $15 in stores) without really thinking about how I could wear it. When I got it home, I thought, how else can you wear a sweater fit for a 6 year old other than with blue or black jeans or pants? I was on a quest to find out, lest I let this cute sweater sit in my closet all winter!

FYI: this post is slightly photo heavy!

The first and most obvious way to wear this sweater is casually. Just about anything fit for a six year old can be fit for a twenty-one year old if you add a blazer, skinny jeans and boots, right?

Blazer: H&M, $50
Sweater: Old Navy, $15
Jeans: Rue 21, $9
Leg Warmers: Wet Seal, old
Boots: Old Navy, $30
Purse: Steve Madden via Marshalls, $40
Necklace: Forever 21, $8

I love this little fox! He's as close to a pet that my husband will let me get. So I love him and might get him a Christmas present. The fox, not my husband. Him too, though. :)

I wore this outfit out running errands on a Sunday afternoon. The sweater is so cozy and warm, perfect for the surprisingly warm weather (as in 50 degrees) we were having that day.

The next way I tried to style this was into a work appropriate outfit. I know that I might seriously asking for it by walking into an office of grown adults, wearing a fox sweater, but whatever. YOLO, right?

White top: H&M, $17
Sweater: Old Navy, $15
Blue Skirt: Charlotte Russe, $16
Heels: Forever 21, $20
Necklace: Rue 21, $5

I've worn this sweater to work once and haven't gotten any snide remarks yet..

I am rather proud of finding another way to wear this skirt though! Two trendy items in one outfit? Who you tryin' to impress, Lynette? Oh yeah. You guys. Do you like me? Check yes or no.

And lastly, I dared to find a way to wear this sweater that was dressy, and possibly ready for a holiday party. Something I've never tried before was wearing a shirt over a dress to make it like a skirt, so I tried it out with this sweater, since the dress almost perfectly matches the fox!

Blazer: H&M, $50
Sweater: Old Navy, $15
Dress: Target, forgot the price!
Booties: Forever 21, $23
Clutch: Wet Seal, $5
Bracelets: Forever 21 & Charming Charlies

Also, many of you may have noticed that I changed the layout of my blog. YAY, ME! I was getting rather tired of my free, pre-made layout I found somewhere so I whipped up this puppy all by myself. Well, me and the Blogger template customization tool.  Also, I've added a tab up at the top titled "My Photographer"if you'd like to see the lucky guy who gets to photograph this gal all the time. He thinks I'm pretty, so that's all that matters to me. :)


  1. I LOVE the fox sweater!! And I think you rocked all three looks. I have the French Hen sweater from J. Crew and wear it to work all the time - that little hen and I? We're tight. Love the idea of dressing it up though - haven't tried that yet!


    1. Thanks, Morgan! I've been drooling over the animal graphic sweaters from J. Crew, but Old Navy is much more my budget, haha.

  2. i cant decide whic i like the most!! nicely done!!


  3. Love it! You look great :) Animal prints are a must this season!


    1. Haha yes! It's such a specific trend I'm afraid we'll never see or hear from it again after this winter, but I'll pay $15 for a disposable trend. :)

  4. These are really nice ideas, love them!


  5. I can't decide which one is my favorite- I love your style!

  6. I love love love that sweater! so whimsical!

  7. I just love the First one and the third, so adorable!
    I really love your style, keep it up!
    Happy Blogging,

  8. So cute!! I love the look with the red dress, and I thought it was a skirt. Love the sweater!

    1. The dress is actually more like a tangerine color, but thanks!

  9. You seriously look amazing! I think the third with the skirt is my favorite; it's so unexpectedly perfect!

  10. love the last look the best! going to check out Old Navy website and see if I am lucky enough to snag one too


    1. I think it's sold out online, but I got mine in stores! They do run kind of big in my opinion. I picked up an XS and wouldn't have minded if it were a little smaller, so if you're smaller than me, it might be kind of big!

  11. great looKs!
    xxx have nice weekend
    enjoy your time!

  12. To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of that sweater but I love, love, love all the ways you've paired it. You've got such great style :D.

  20. i love how you styled this! the first casual look is my fave. i just bought this exact sweater for my bff, took me 2 different old navy's til i found it!

    1. I found it right away, thankfully, but I see it EVERYWHERE in the "blogosphere", so I know why they're hard to come by!

  21. These are all adorable. I think the blazer one is my favorite because I could totally recreate it (if I had a fox sweater). I like the new updated blog too! So fresh and so clean.
