Foxy!

I’ve done a few of these Little Style / Big Style posts before, and it’s always easier to match along gender lines. Mother and daughter, or father and son are fairly easy, but I found a cute mama/son option.

Little Style, Big Style: Foxy!

The ladies’ sweater is from Old Navy (sold out online, but I’ve seen it in stores), and the little boys’ sweater is from Target. I just ordered the little version for August, but I wore the other one when I was out shopping yesterday. The ladies at J. Crew and Madewell each wanted to know where they could get one too. So, you know, success.

    That’s really cute – I do love the foxes. If you want to go for a navy/white stripe, there’s another mother-son combo. Mum’s top comes from Gap (the Bowery striped crew), and son’s is from Jojo Maman Bebe (the Breton stripe long sleeve). With no baby girls to dress in this house, it’s nice to see some ways to get all matchy-matchy with my little boy! :)

    So cute! I saw your sweater in the picture you tweeted yesterday, and wondered where it came from! :)

    My daughter loves foxes. I’m going to break the rules and get her one and pair it with some hot pink cords maybe. Yes? No? And then I’ll have to venture to Old Navy for myself…

      Yes! I considered getting one for Eleanor too, but then I thought no, let the boy and I have a little something just for us.

    I just got the old navy one in the mail and it really is so cute. I was kind of worried since their yarn can be hit or miss, but the quality seems pretty good on this one. I’m doing a craft fair this weekend and think I’ll wear it there!

    We had our family photos taken with my 2 year old son wearing that sweater. It’s darling.

    The search for that sweater has supplanted all other priorities for the evening. Thanks for the tip!

    How FUN! I would totally match with my son or daughter — my mom sometimes did with me when I was really little and I loved it! :-)

    I’m pretty sure I snagged the last Old Navy sweater online tonight and I got it for 30% off!! Thanks for the great post- I’ve been wanting a Foxy sweater all fall.

    Arrrrrrrgh I had that sweater in my shopping bag for over a week because I kept waiting for them to add more stuff I like so that I could get free shipping…..BUT NOPE. It and the owl one are both gone. Honestly I wasn’t that into the owl sweater but I would totally have bought it as a consolation prize.

    I just bought that little fox sweater for my Graeme a few weeks ago and have been seeing it featured everywhere– and for good reason– it is wonderful! : )

    What a coincidence! I was just telling my hubby about these exact two matching sweaters I had seen for myself and my little guy and low and behold you posted about it! Great minds think alike!

    I ordered the fox, owl, and sheep from Old Navy. I couldn’t stop myself! I can’t walk through a store wearing any of them without being stopped to ask where I got them. Total Old Navy win.

    Why do I envision Darcy in that sweater scene in “Bridget Jones Diary?”…but this sweater is a lot cooler and I would gladly wear it around a party! Got to get an Old Navy and Target stat…thanks for posting, otherwise I wouldn’t have known about them.

      Ha, it is very Darcy. It just needs to be a reindeer instead of a fox.

    My son has this sweater and I already ordered a fox tee from Anthro for me but I couldn’t resist this. I called around to a few Old Navy’s and found it. Thanks for sharing! I love matching my little guy (although I’m sure my hubby wishes I didn’t!).

    This is cute, but I think you’ve gone off the deep end. I liked your decorating posts way back in 2008. Now, your writing for a magazine, which is great, but you’ve become more vapid, more of a stuff shirt, and further from yourself than you probably ever wanted to be (cashiers at a bookstore, um sorry, “booksellers,” dream of being literary authors, not of writing silly posts about mother-daughter glasses and outfits). It’s a general trend in these times – surfaces have value, for some odd reason, since it doesn’t take much to shop and move stuff around — but I can’t help but feel a little sorry for you.

    Hi Nicole!
    I bought the sweater, and am wearing it today but don’t feel that I’ve really paired it and styled it to the best of it’s abilities. I’d love to see a post on how you are wearing it, or a few ideas or suggestions for outfits? How is everybody else wearing it?

    Thanks so much for these! I bought those, as well as a cute fox design sweater (I think it’s mixed with pink & orange stripes? – can’t find it online) from H&M, and my husband has a fox shirt from threadless. We’re ready for our family portrait! =)
