Zooey-D Nautical Style

Dear Fashion Diary,

Good news! You can now get 10% off at Kohl' using code: TENFORBLOG
through March 9th! Woot.

Speaking of Kohl's, I got this sweater top for Free! My favorite 4 letter word. Kohl's cash is a beautiful thing. I had $10 Kohl's cash and this was triple discounted to less than that. Didn't have to touch my wallet once! It came with black tulle sticking out the bottom which I'm guessing is why it was on the clearance rack. But I didn't pass it up cause of that-I'm used to dealing with alot worse at goodwill! So I just got my handy dandy seam-ripper and took care of it, easy peasy :)

Wearing a skirt with tights? I feel like Zooey Deschanel. She basically wears tights with Everything. And I love it. And I love her. 
If you're new to my blog you may not know how obsessed I am with Zooey. She is my fashion icon, and her show New Girl is hilarious. Not To Mention: her band, She and Him, is my #1 favorite band. Not kidding. Or exaggerating. :)
 I heart her!

Funny story: as I was googling photos of Zooey-D in tights, I came across this! 
From her tv show!
Yep, I unknowingly picked out almost the identical skirt. How amazing is this.

I can't believe you got that sweater for less than ten bucks- AWESOME! And I love that you didn't just not buy it because of the black- you fixed it! I need to be more open minded about stuff like that!

Jessi said...

Oh.My.Gosh. That is so awesome that you picked out the same skirt!! And we should be friends. Cuz I'm obsessed with Zooey too! Her style is exactly how I want mine to be and I love her personality! And New Girl of course, how could you not? And yes, She&Him too. I've been told I look like her before and that is seriously the highest compliment in my book! Haha.
Anyway, I can't believe this sweater was free! It totally looks like something from J.Crew! It's so classic and pretty, I bet you'll get so much use out of it. And I love that you combined stripes and polka dots, you are just too cute!

Maiken said...

you look gorgeous! :) I love it how you've mixed stripes with polka dots and the similarity with Zooey's look IS obvious, that's so true. oh and I have a super similar top, even the colours are the same, and the stripes! I love wearing it :P
