Hey everyone, I'm bringing you another inspiration post and for this post my inspiration is Summer Finn played the adorable, bambi-eyed, and always fabulously dressed Zooey Deschanel in the movie (500) Days of Summer. I know I say this every single inspiration post but this is one of my veryberry favorite movies, I put off seeing it until it was on DVD because I'm not typically a huge fan of the romantic comedy genre but this movie really struck a chord in me and I've now seen it over dozen times.

(500) Days of Summer is a story of boy meets girl. The boy, Tom Hansen (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), believes in true love and the girl, Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel), does not. They meet working at a greeting card company and soon start seeing one another. It's a movie about love but it's not a love story. I took almost all of that verbatim from the trailer because as you are all painfully aware I kind of suck with movie synopsis. The movie is from Tom's point of view and it shows his struggle to understand and cope with the complexity of his relationship with someone who sees love/relationships/the relationship he is in a completely different light than he does. When I was younger I found myself in a very similar situation to the characters in this movie so I found the characters easy to relate to and it almost goes without saying that being in a one sided or complicated relationship is hard on the heart. If you haven't seen the movie I definitely suggest it, not only is it a great movie with wonderful cinematography, cute costumes/ characters, funny lines, and moments that push you over the tears-for-years cliff but it also has one of the best soundtracks!

I'm carrying on like I usually do so to summarize Summer Finn's wardrobe it would be lots of blue, the director did this intentionally because he was inspired by Zooey Deschanel's eyes. She wears lots of cute dresses, cardigans, and has a somewhat vintage vibe to her outfit choices (which yes, I would say probably describes Zooey's wardrobe but I personally love her sense of style).

I hope you like the outfits, I found so many things I thought would work perfectly that I had a hard time narrowing it down but I think I did well, the only things I would add are probably a pair of dark black tights and a basic dark cardigan because they go with everything and Summer's character wears them several times in the movie. I hope if you haven't seen the movie that you'll rush your butt out to rent it/buy it. As always I created these sets using Polyvore, feel free to follow my finds and sets HERE. I'm sitting here listening to a few songs from the movie and I'm feeling myself getting sucked into the movie again, I might just have to root through my boxes and put it on.

Have a great day, I'll see you in the next inspiration post.

I definitely need to see this - I always meant to watch it but then it just sort of fell through the cracks with everything else that I had going on...I need to remedy that.

I've only seen the movie once, but from what I remember I liked it. I do remember her style/outfits in the movie though and I really think you nailed it, like you always do. I went and got on Polyvore after reading this post! haha

@Courtney Erin

I definitely recommend it, I didn't expect to like it as much as I did but now it is one of those movies that just sticks with me.

@Thick Threads

Thank you, polyvore is so much fun, I love searching for stuff I can lust over and can't afford/fit into :\. Zooey Deschanel is ridiculously adorable, I love the way she dresses.


Honeysuckelle said...


Zooey seems to have a pretty amazing life doesn't she? I wish there were more movies like this movie.


Honeysuckelle said...


Thank you, I find so many things on polyvore that it is a bit ridiculous. It's a pretty awesome movie, you should see it again sometime :P

@wait until the sunset

Hehe yay, I meant to ask what you thought of 'Ghost World' and 'Jawbreaker'?

I'm glad you like the outfits.

sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo confession. I didn't like 500 days of summer even thought I am a huge JGL fan. like, HUGE. Maybe it's because I didn't like Zoe then. But gah, she's so irresistibly cute, right? I totally love everything she wears.

How dare you not like '500 Days of Summer', geez Laura! I'm totally kidding. I actually get a little intrigued when someone doesn't like a movie I enjoyed because I like hearing other perspectives on things, so may I ask, what didn't you like about the movie? JGL is quite cute, I gotta say. I know a lot of people don't care for Zooey and I can kinda see their argument on her, she does pretty much play the exact same character in every movie/tv show she is in. However I think she is really adorable and she has a killer, killer wardrobe.
