Zooey Deschanel knows how to do overalls right.

The New Girl star was spotted heading to film an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in Los Angeles yesterday, and she was wearing the perfect summer ensemble. For the occasion, the 36-year-old donned a pair of denim overalls that featured a zipper up the front. She paired the casual piece with a white scoopneck T-shirt, and accessorized her outfit with a pair of black slip-on Vans sneakers ($55,, coordinating Ray-Ban wayfarer sunglasses, and a quilted chain-strap leather bag. The actress styled her signature brunette strands in loose curls and kept her makeup to a minimum.

During her segment on the late night show, Deschanel discussed her daughter Elsie Otter's first birthday party and how she baked her a smash cake without sugar—but the tyke wasn't having it. She revealed that the little cutie took one look at the dessert, poked it, tasted it, and shook her head to say no. "She was not at all interested," she said. "No smashing!"
