What Mindy (and her goddaughter) Wore 

In this week’s episode, Mindy prepares for a sleepover by building a bunk bed for her goddaughter… which ends up collapsing on her bestie’s arm and breaking it. Ouch. From there, Danny takes Gwen to the hospital where he meets his new love interest, Eye Patch Girl (aka Marnie from Girls), totally unaware that Shauna and Betsy have found a love letter in his desk addressed to his ex-wife. EEEK. All I know is that when a horse dies in the first five minutes of an episode, things just HAVE to get interesting.

 

The episode begins with Mindy on a typical riding-through-Central-Park-on-a-horse-drawn-carriage date. Typical as in one of those dates where the horse attached to your horse-drawn carriage has a heart attack and is then euthanized by a cop.

At least Mindy is dressed to a T for chilly New York mild Southern California weather (let’s be real).

Maybe I’m color-shy but I am astounded by how many colors she can put together and MAKE IT WORK. Like, BRIGHT green jacket, BRIGHT yellow earrings and blue-and-white polkadot scarf. This girl can pull off orange, brown and pastels for God sakes. 

 

Mindy goes to Greenwich to visit Gwen in this adorable purple and gray Theyskens’ Theory sweater. And, yeah, this is how I always want to look while pouring maple syrup all over homemade waffles. Effortless and chic.

Speaking of effortless and chic:

I’m half-serious.

Sort of.

I’m just sayin’, if I could wear horse-print tops and pink fluffy bathrobes for the rest of my life, I’d be happy.

 

Mindy invites Gwen to sleep over in the city and is forced to bring her goddaughter along who demands a bunk bed. Which, sidenote, is an absolutely ridiculous request for a one-night sleepover. Mindy complies (seriously???) and has Morgan build it for her (duh).

I actually really love this outfit Mindy is wearing. I know, I know, denim-on-denim, postal worker, yada yada yada. But she totally looks like a female construction worker in a Levi’s ad. AKA HOT.

 

She’s even wearing a hip version of Timbaland’s (they’re UGG Calynda).

Unfortunately, someone else had the exact same wardrobe idea:

Really, couldn’t they have put Danny in anything other than denim-on-denim? In fact, this is the first time I remember seeing him in chambray and he’s wearing it next to the main character who is wearing the SAME THING. Get it together, wardrobe department! Or maybe this a subliminal hint that they are Meant To Be, in which case, well played, wardrobe department.

 

Danny ends up finishing the bunk bed just in time for Gwen and Riley’s arrival. Unfortunately, the bunk bed collapses on Gwen’s arm, breaks it and warrants a trip to the hospital. Thank God she broke it in this super cute blue striped sweater though.

By the way, didn’t Gwen also have a broken arm in the Thanksgiving episode? Are these episodes out of order or something? So confused.

 

While Danny takes Gwen to the hospital (there, meeting his new love interest, Marnie from Girls), Mindy begins to finally bond with her goddaughter, aka The Next Suri Cruise.

All I’m sayin’ is if I can wear pink dresses and matching pink tights for the rest of my life, I’d be happy. #suricruiseproblems

 

All three of them bond together in Mindy’s bed (so much for that bunk bed) while Mindy wears a pretty blah henley but a super cute two-seasons-ago-but-still-lovely Dogeared wishbone necklace.

Gwen is really the one that steals the show in this cute polka-dot tank top pajama set. They’re like sexier Jess from New Girl pajamas.

But, we can never have a Mindy episode without some Mindy business attire. I absolutely adore this pink polka-dot button down and pinstriped peplum jumper.

How does this NOT make her look like Minnie Mouse on Wall Street??? Because, I’m pretty sure it would on anyone else. Aka ME.

Mindy, you are incredible.
