Ode to Zooey

Dear Fashion Diary,

My "thewind'sdryingoutmycontacts" face...

This day was a glorious day. Husbandman asked me on an official date
and so we got all dressed up, went out to a Delicious dinner
at a steakhouse, then walked along the river in Downtown Idaho Falls. 
This river looks awesome in the winter when it's
frozen solid! It was the perfect day. There's no one I love dating more
than my husbandman :)

As for my outfit, I couldn't decide what to wear {shocker}. So I thought something I often do while standing in front of my closet:
"what would Zooey Deschanel wear?" 
While this isn't Exactly her style, I took her nautical look she often wears
and made it my own with what I had, and alas this outfit was born.
Thank you, Zooey for providing fashion inspiration
to girls everywhere! 

Striped top: Old Navy
Military Cardi: Forever 21 {old}
Skinnies: Walmart
Wedges: Charlotte Russe online
Belt: Thrifted
Necklace: JC Penney/ Purse: Dillards {Fossil}
Sunnies: Rue 21

Pin It!

SOOOOOO CUTE! I loveee this outfit!! (:

and about my shop my closet.. I just charge about 3 for shipping,depending on where they live and how much the item they purchased weighs!! Sometimes it is closer to 4 or 5. Sorry it took me forever to get back to you!

Maiken said...

another perfectly layered outfit from you. that cardi looks so good together with the striped top. and how pretty are the wedges!
too bad my boyfriend haven't thought of awesome dates like that lately :P

You are flawless. This outfit is dynamite. Can I just have all your clothes, please?

ylenia said...

Niiice pics Sara! I still don't know which item is my favourite here between the bag and the shoes ;)
Yes the M of the logo is also the scorpio symbol (my sign too!) and actually there are several meanings in that logo...maybe I'm going to explain them all in a post!
