Oh, Zooey

Shirt: Vintage, thrifted, $2 // Blazer: H&M, $20 // Jeans: Urban Outfitters, purchased with gift certificate // Scarf: Courtesy of LOFT // Shoes: Steven by Steve Madden via 6pm.com, $50

I'm eager to get back to real time, so you get a two-for-one today! This is what I wore for a casual day in the city. I love white on white. And, yes, I wore that hat and those shoes nearly every day...

Shirt: Old Navy, $6 // Skirt: Forever 21 via Plato's Closet, $8 // Shoes: RJ Girl via Piperlime, $55 // Clutch: Courtesy of Accessorize // Earrings: Vintage, thrifted, $1

This is what I wore to a totally unplanned She & Him show at the Fox Theater in Oakland. We didn't find out about the show till we arrived. It was sold out, but we managed to finagle some tickets on craigslist. As I mentioned before, I packed light and with little planning, so I wasn't exactly prepared to dress for an event with Zooey Deschanel present! I probably wouldn't have otherwise chosen this combination -- plain tee, party skirt, chunky heels and sequined clutch -- but I'm hoping it came together in some sort of quirky harmony. For the record, they were phenomenal live, and she is unimaginably (but not surprisingly) charming in real life.

I think you look perfectly darling in the second outfit-- it's simple and very chic. The chunky heels are an unexpected twist!

Eeee, you got to see She & Him live! I was mourning the fact that I can't go to Bonnaroo where they were playing. Sounds like you had a good time. :)

Toast with Charmalade

You did a great job piecing together outfits from what little you brought with you! I love them!
