Zooey Deschanel’s List of Summertime Activities in Self

Although Deschanel is busy this month promoting her latest film, 500 Days of Summer (nice coincidence, right?); working on the second album by her band, She & Him; and planning her wedding to Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie, she’s eager to make the most of the season. “You can’t force fun,” she says, “but you can set up situations where fun will happen to you.”

Check out a couple more photos from Zooey’s photoshoot after the jump, as well as her playlist of summer songs.

Certain types of music just make me so happy. Here’s my personal top-five summer-fun list:
“My Baby Just Cares for Me,” Nina Simone
“Summer Dreaming,” Harmony Grass
“Wouldn’t It Be Nice?” Beach Boys
“Everybody Loves a Lover,” The Shirelles
“Tell Her No,” The Zombies
