Copycat!: A Pony for Christmas

Outfit Inspiration from: Mindy Kaling on The Mindy Project


DSC02448*Copycat! is a feature where I try to recreate outfits I find on Pinterest (or various other sources of inspiration), utilizing at least one item from Target.

Third time for a Copycat! This inspiration comes from Mindy Kaling on The Mindy Project, which is actually one of the few shows that I regularly watch (though on Hulu). This sweater is so cute, but so little kid-ish (mainly because I plucked it from the girls department of Old Navy), so I was having a hard time figuring out how to wear it to work. Who else, but the hilarious Mindy, could pair together a horse graphic shirt and still look business appropriate, which is exactly what I wanted to do with this sweater this morning! I took the cutesy-ness of this sweater up a notch with the polka dot tights (which might have seen their last day, since I think they have a run in them…sad face), and have already gotten tons of compliments from people at work. Boom…real life compliments are day makers!

How would you rock this sweater in real life? Old Navy’s Instagram also featured this sweater on their feed today. I’m such a trendsetter, hah!

ps. I’m already sick of winter. And snow. And wearing tights. Get ready for a long winter season of me complaining about the cold and trying to make blankets fashionable. Just what you wanted to hear right?


  • On Target item:┬áMossimo Skirt (purchased in October 2013, but appears to be sold out; similar style in a cool print)
  • Sweater: Old Navy (exact)
  • Statement Necklace (H&M, old)
  • Tights: Merona, Target (here)
  • Shoes: Old Navy (here)

  • Sarah

    SHUT UP. I’m so glad you have this sweater because I have it too and when I wear it I think of you because your love of the Colts is well-documented. (TOTALLY not creepy.)

    Anyway, this is how I styled it for the weekend but I love it with the skirt too!

    P.S. Told you I was stalking.

    • Sarah! You shut up, you are so nice and way too kind! I don’t think that is creepy at all! I’m actually even more in love with it now, because I never made the Colts connection…not the brightest right here, haha. And will probably need to wear it soon. And I love that my Colts love has spanned the nation. ;)

      I’m off to check out how you styled it! Thanks for all the love (and the stalking)! ;)
