AJ Wears :: An Elephant sweater

Another day, another weird sweater. This one, I bought the day that Obama was elected into his second term of office. I was so paranoid that my buying a republican themed sweater would jinx his election, I refused to wear it until he was safe and sound. It appears my sweater has no jinxing powers and our president kept his job. Otherwise, I might have had to write a strongly worded letter to Forever 21 about their selling of voodoo artifacts. I should have known that no one owns "elephant" though (much like Alabama will never own houndstooth, imo) and it's just cute and THAT'S IT.

Honestly, there's not much else to tell you about this outfit. I wore it, I worked, I ate sushi with my gfs, and then I came home and changed into stretchy pants. This is the blogger dream, you guys. I know. Side note - I believe every girl needs a pair of killer black pumps. I first purchased these after reading Lauren Conrad's Style from cover to cover. I get it. These aren't comfortable, but they're killer. I put on these pumps, and I immediately feel more powerful, sexy, and fabulous. Plus, it doesn't hurt that they go with almost every single outfit I own.

What I Wore :: Elephants on Parade

I love the silly printed sweater trend this season (already did it once here). So someone please stop me, I'm going to buy all of them. This one has elephants all over it. It's such a delight. I tried it on and visited it weekly at Forever before finally committing to the VERY LAST ONE when I went shopping last week to reward myself for voting (treat yo self).

I mean, come on. LOOK AT IT. It's a perfect fun color, it's deliciously soft, and the elephants are fun and cute and whatever, I love it. Just add a faux color (this ones from JewelMint - how genius, right?) and whatever you want on bottom. Literally. Pretty sure this sweater goes with everything.

I chose studded loafers in a luscious teal because I was in straight lounging mode all day and wanted to keep comfy. These are definitely the comfiest shoes I own - and some of the sassiest. Great combo, I think. More comfy shoes should be sassy. And boyfriend jeans - because let's face it, it's one step away from wearing pajama pants.
