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 keep promising myself that I'll post more often buttt clearly that hasn't been happening, to be fair though things have been mighty, mighty (mouse? Quick, someone photoshop a picture of mighty mouse with a bottle of booze with a caption that reads "screw this...") stressful the last few weeks. 


I got into a pretty heated argument with my quasi-roommate/landlord/ex-friend of my boyfriends last week after I finally had reached my boiling point (way, way past it actually). Everyone in the house with exception of me (I always went through my boyfriend) has tried addressing house issues with him but it was always like trying to crack ice with a pixie stick so things have not surprisingly showed no improvement . After the argument I packed some stuff and cried for a good two hours so I felt better and horrible at the same magical time, living/staying with someone you don't like or get along with is not easy. My other roommate lent me her mini fridge so at this point him and I don't have to interact at all. It almost feels pointless to even argue with him since my boyfriend and I are definitely moving within the next few months but I'm also not one to shy away from addressing my issues with someone face to face, I hadn't till now because he is not a very approachable person and whenever I have talked to him he has always either insulted me or gave me the stink eye the entire time. So yes, to cut a long story short and plus I feel a little inappropriate sharing this info, I am definitely ready ("Well, the turkeys done"... So is the kitchen) to move. This cheered me up a bit, watchie here.

The worst of it is though that we found out that my boyfriend's dad is going in for spine surgery within the next few weeks, his Dad is in a lot of pain caused by bulging discs and there is no guarantee that the surgery will make much of a difference. We're trying to be as optimistic as we can be but the next few weeks are going to be very rough. I'm hoping for the best. 

Meowshed Potato Time

We've both been trying to keep our mind off the stressful crap with various things... I've been debating whether to learn the dance moves to the mashed potato but I'm afraid I don't own enough sports bras to get the job done and I've also been meowing (kinda like humming... it's not annoying or anything...) along to the song in the bathroom. We also went to a house party and had cake, out to dinner with friends a few times, been watching Ninja Warrior over pizza, cuddled with our sweet babies, and walked out of Walmart with one thing (this is a rare thing) after been asked personal questions by creepy suit wearing guys at 2AM in Walmart who I affectionately named "Tentacle People" because I'm convinced they were aliens. That's what I get for spending so much time on quests for Monster High dolls - I've gotten two new dolls btw! My boyfriend celebrated his birthday a little over a week ago, he isn't big on birthdays but he seemed like he had a pretty good day all things considered. I love that man to pieces, he is the sweetest and there isn't anyone else I'd rather watch Ninja Warrior in my pajamas with <3

I'm sorry if this post is long and scatter brained but even with nothing going on I'm a pretty scatter brained gal. Oh and um, if you're a Sims fan check this out, I'm really excited for it! I'll have to do a haul post here soon.
