I wasn’t too big of a fan on the retail version of this sweatshirt, with the gray background and gold foil elephant. I already have a few gray sweatshirts and the Factory version with the Navy background was a much better addition to my closet.

~ Metallic Elephant Sweatshirt, J Crew Factory (TB, ~
~ Homespun Popover Shirt, J Crew Factory (Dots, Buffalo Check, Madewell) ~
~ Toothpick Jeans, J Crew Factory (JCF, J Crew) ~
~ Vans in Pinstripe Wool, J Crew (Leopard, Denim, Checked, Croc) ~

I’ve finally figured things out and this outfit combination is on that works for me now. I’m also glad the sweatshirt is pretty lightweight as it was pretty warm in the afternoon, but still drafty in the house. The gray skies in the background gave way to partially blue skies and sun later in the day.


This is a Factory-centric outfit with only my Vans being from the retail store (from last Fall). I didn’t wear these a whole lot last year but have worn them a few times already this Fall.


Which Elephant Sweatshirt version do you have? Gray or Navy? I kind of wish it had been done in black. What about you?
