Jen for Cotton (Kinda...)

I was perusing the inter-web the other day, as one does, and came across this image of Zooey Deschanel - its part of a series advertising cotton clothing.

I loved this outfit as soon as I saw it and thought it would be really easy to recreate. So I did (though, my entire outfit is not made from cotton, sorry!).

(Thanks for the photos Hun)

Its simple, easy and really comfy for packing purposes (but you'll need to excuse the wrinkles in my shorts, I sit down from time to time and that's what happens!).

There's also a t.v ad that went along with the print campaign, and while all the outfits are really cute and probably quite easy to recreate, the song (which she sings) is a little cheesy.

This week involves more packing - we move to David's Dads on Friday, Mocha gets sent up to Auckland Saturday morning, and that afternoon we have a wedding to attend and then Sunday is our house inspection.

Phew, its all go!

David is home early (due in part, to a creepy man who came to pick up our washing machine that he bought off us. I didn't feel like being home by myself.) and now we are off to drop more things at his dads place for storage and then we are going to get ice cream.

While its not completely warm, its sunny, so therefore we should get ice cream!


PS) Thanks so much for all of your moving well wishes. I've been terrible about replying to comments but hope to catch up next week!


  1. Such a cute outfit! I love those tights and the shorts! And the shirt is so delicate and girly.

    I'm so glad you're almost done! Yay!

  2. So cute! I want to try this look now too!

  3. Urgh. That song was awful! I'm not convinced she's any good at singing... and I also sincerely hope she didn't write that song! Loved the clothes, though.
