Zooey Deschanel in green top and multi coloured spot shorts, New Girl episode 5

I warned you that I’d gone a bit Zooey Deschanel mad and after last night’s brilliant episode of New Girl on Channel 4 (Cece Crashes) I was proper cock-a-hoop about the emerald green top and spotty shorts (with her signature cobalt blue flats) she was wearing so well.

Cooking Nick some eggs – next follows months of “will they, won’t they” – excellent
If I could wear flats, I’d wear them there ones

Her actual dotty disco shorts are Marc by Marc Jacobs and they are sold out, but perhaps you’ll like the alternative I’ve found for that kooky Jess look:

Petite green knitted top, £30 @ Debenhams
Not so dotty: Jess may be scatty but she likes a posh short. The Marc by Marc Jacobs babies she was wearing are $75, but sadly sold out – probs ‘cos America gets the show ahead of us.
Green square spot shorts by Whistles @ ASOS, £75 (sale price)
And these little lovelies look like an exact match to me…Cobalt blue flats by American Eagle Outfitters, £28.60
