Getting Casual With A Raccoon On My Sweater

Birdcage necklace
After my last post and the Christmas Day outfit post where I was really dressed up, it’s nice to get back to casual jeans and comfy sweaters. I bought this raccoon sweater from ASOS before Christmas, so I guess I’ve finally jumped on the animal-on-my-sweater bandwagon… I couldn’t resist.

The birdcage necklace was a Christmas present from my sister – she had it bespoke made locally, it’s soooo pretty I think. So two animals today.

I hope you’re all easing yourselves into 2013 slowly? Thankfully Friday has come around really quickly: happy weekend everyone!

    I bought this same sweater! Did not wear it yet. Really should before it gets too warm here.
    Lovely combo.

    Normally I am not a fan of animals on sweaters, but this raccoon is seriously fun and cute…great with jeans. I love it!

    Usually a lurker, I have to chime in and say how much I love that critter sweater. My goal is to shop secondhand this year, but I don't think a critter sweater is going to show up in thrift stores any time soon. I'll be checking out ASOS!

    I saw some really cute animal sweaters – in the kids' department of course, way too small. πŸ™‚
    Love the necklace, what a nice present!

    Hi Catherine! I think the animal sweater trend is cute. I have yet to find the one I just can't live without though. This week I'm asking all my favorite bloggers to please try an outfit with a men's tie. I know you could make this look really stylish. I hope you will participate.

    I love your shoes. As for the sweater…. when I was young I had these kind of sweaters. So to me it is a matter of: "done that, been there". That is what you get with age LOL. Is also reminds me a bit of Bridget Jones, although you look a whole lot nicer in it. Very well styled with all the other things. You are a master at that.

    The sweater looks so good on you, cozy, casual and fun. I don't think could pull off an animal sweater, it would just look….weird. It's the same with any animal print, I just don't look good in them. So i shall live vicariously through you! Huzzah!
