A new twist on animal sweaters

I really have not ever given much thought to wearing animal-themed sweaters.
However, after taking a look at the post this gal wrote to share here on my blog today, I'm kinda giving it a second thought.
I mean... just look at her owl sweater! Take it away, Lauren!

Hi y'all! My name is Lauren, and I'm the blogger behind Fizz and Frosting. Since I'm a self-proclaimed clothes horse and shopaholic, I couldn't wait to share one of my favorite trends for fall/winter with y'all. No longer reserved for the twelve and under crowd, cutesy animal-themed sweaters and tops have stormed their way into the fashion scene in a big way, and even though wearing them brings out the kid in me, the last thing I want to do is come off like an overgrown elementary school child. So I've styled my favorite owl sweater for work and play. When it comes to wearing them casually, there really are no rules. Feel free to embrace the whimsy, pairing them with bright colors or mixing prints. For my casual look, I paired the sweater with skinny jeans, a polka dotted popover, and bright yellow heels. I also added a fun crystal necklace to keep the look playful.
For the office, it's a little trickier. I let the sweater be the fun, statement piece and made sure to keep the rest of the outfit conservative. A white oxford, a pencil skirt, and ladylike flats add a serious side. I kept my jewelry understated with a monogram necklace and my everyday watch. wear animal sweater work
