TV Fashion Inspiration: Hart of Dixie

 A while back, I mentioned this show as my inspiration for deciding to wear heels out and about town. Zoe Hart, the main character on Hart of Dixie, has phenomenal taste in fashion, and brings her New York City style to the small town of Bluebell, Alabama. As the new doctor in town, she struggles to build a good rapport with everyone in the small community, and her shorts only raise eyebrows instead of her popularity. However, through demonstrating her capability and learning how to soften her tough exterior, she's proved herself to be a lovable newcomer - all while never changing her sleek, city style.
I think it's really humorous how in almost every snapshot I found from the show, Rachel Bilson's head is angled up. That's probably because despite all the heels she wears, she's still relatively short. At 5'2", she must never have to worry about towering over the boys.
Anyway, here are three looks inspired by her character's style on the show!

Look 1: Leopard Lady
As demonstrated by the next two outfits, Zoe really knows how to crank her outfit up a notch by adding a splendid jacket. She wears this fabulous leopard coat in one episode and I'm now determined to find one for myself!

Look 2: Tweed Me
Next up: tweed jacket. Mixed with leather shorts and a classy button down, Zoe demonstrated how to be polished yet retain that city edge with this outfit. I've got a few ideas on how to recreate this look for myself...

Look 3: Romanticized 
Finally, a more romanticized look that I based around floral print shorts. Paired with a classy top, some gorgeous heels, and a trademark jacket, I feel like this is a look Zoe Hart would proudly wear.
I'm obsessed with this style of heel, although I'm not certain whether I should invest in a pair or not. Let's be realistic - I'm a college student, not an office woman. I'm constantly walking around campus, not sitting behind a desk. Where and when would I wear these babies!?

I'll find an excuse...

Oddly enough, my favorite is the last one, the romanticized look - I love those shorts and those heels are frigging perfect. But I never knew she was that short!!!! She's even shorter than me, ha!:D

Happy weekend, dear.;)

Such wonderful style! The wardrobe stylist on that show is doing a great job! :)

I had no idea Rachel Bilson was so tiny either - she's the same height as me! :D

Yep, you captured Zoe Hart's style very well here! I stopped watching the show because, honestly, I watch way too many and it's hard to keep up with all of them! I kinda wanna catch up now...
