From 5 to 25

My Threads: Sweater: Old Navy, Jeans & Pumps: Target, Blazer: H&M, Bag: Kenneth Cole Reaction,  Bracelets & Necklace: Forever 21, Watch: Michael Kors

This outfit makes me feel like I'm five. I'm pretty sure my five-year-old self would try and steal it if she saw it. Or more likely, she'd politely tap me on the shoulder and ask to borrow it. Because I was a pretty polite little kid and extra good at sharing. From what I remember, at least. My sister may remember things differently.

Anyway, I'm starting to sense a bit of a theme in my closet lately. Bright and bold and preschool-esque.  This feeling was confirmed yesterday when I was browsing blogs and another style blogger posted an outfit of her two-year-old son pretty much wearing the exact outfit I had on. Not this one! I hope no one would put their son in magenta pants and polka dots. But I was wearing a brown sweater with a fox on it, a chambray shirt, and jeans. Just like the two-year-old boy. 

I think I'm weirdly okay with dressing like a kid, though. At least like a Crewcuts kid or something. It reminds me not to take things too seriously.

Have a happy Tuesday!

  1. I really like this outfit! The combination of the colours and the spotted jumper make it the perfect combination :) big thumbs up for this post!

    Oh and about the kid look with wearing sweaters with a fox or any other print on it...i think they look really cool :)

  2. Emily, there is nothing wrong about a preschoolesque wardrobe as long as you mix it in with COOK and STYLISH Stuff as you did with the magenta skinny Jeans. The colour combo is different and unexpected but I really enjoy it :-)


  3. I almost bought this sweater at Old Navy and I wanted the one with the fox on it. So, clearly we are both ok with dressing like children! As long as they are well dressed children, I'm perfectly ok with it.

  4. I love your wardrobe! Nothing wrong with colorful and happy clothes. I agree with Lindsey, as long as your a well dressed child I say that's ok ;)

  5. This sweater is so cute!! The whole look is perfect and the colors are great together!

  6. I am in love with this sweater... I was in a super huge rush the other day at Old Navy and tried to find it in my flurry of rushing to by Jeans and Jon and jacket... but couldn't find in. Well I don't think you look like a kid at all! BUT if you were to look like one Jcrew cuts is the way to go! ha-ha


  7. Haha...well you look cute so it doesn't matter. Although I wasn't that stylish when I was 5! I have that blazer too! Love it!

  8. If this is dressing like you're five, I'll totally take it! The navy and burgundy combo is too pretty!

  9. My childhood self was significantly less fashionable than your childhood self! I would have admired your gumption.

  10. I just got the exact same sweater! Well, not the exact same. I got the Navy colored one from Old Navy. It's so fun to wear it! I think wearing it almost gives me the energy of a child again! :P

  11. I love your outfits! and this one is perfect! :) the color combination.... and I need the sweater! :)

  12. Ok seriously love that sweater. Old Navy did good this year. I don't know if I could pull of that color, but it looks awesome on you!

  13. I am all about the preschool outfits, they're awesome. I am still so bummed that I didn't nab the fox one online. Here's hoping I stumble upon it in store. I love how you've styled it! x

  14. Love this color combo! I really need to get some polka dot sweaters :) and nude heels are always a great choice!
