love*birds 6.1.11

i can hardly believe it is june! we barely got a spring and now we're headed into summer. here is hoping, since winter lasted so long, that summer will make it's way into november! we can always hope. anyway, suddenly it is wednesday and we are somehow halfway through another week. how did that happen? long weekends always mess with my head. but they are also one of my favorite things. speaking of favorite things (wow. see what i did there? seamless transition.) here are some of the things we are loving this week...

nora bird's picks:

my go-to flats are pretty much on their last leg (or should i say foot???). i am thinking of investing in a pair of toms. it is such a great company. they give a pair of new shoes to a child in need with every purchase. now i just have to choose between the grey chambray or the linen pinstripe...

why oh why must this be sold out? so sturdy and structured yet so pretty at the same time. i love this satchel.

i am in the market for some new glasses frames. and these are simply perfect.

you know i love minnesota art. you would think i would have more of it my house. i think it is time to start a collection, beginning with this awesome print.

so magical.

megan bird's picks:

origami bouquet
since you can't always get fresh, minnesota-grown flowers, why not have these beauties that last forever?

jeffrey campbell cherry canvas shoes
how perfect are these shoes? jeffrey campbell, cherries; 'nuff said!

chevron dress
i'm buying this tonight. i have had my eye on it for a few weeks, and tonight is the night! can't wait! wouldn't it be cute with some jeffrey campbells?

bows and beads earrings
i normally like big, gaudy earring best, but these are so cute and dainty. and the have bows on them. and i am a sucker for bows!

vintage perspective dress
i love modcloth's vintage section. this dress has a cutout in the back that is divine!!!

happy, june, all! we hope you're having a great day so far. oh and hey, if you're bored and want to read all about us, check out our new about us! page.

happy day!

the birds


  1. Ooo i want them all!! I will admit that I have a vintage chevron dress like that in different colors though! It's one of my favorites in the Summer time!

  2. I love the satchel and the glasses. That bed in the middle of the forest is amazing!

  3. So many pretty things!!


  4. Great flats- I've never heard of the brand but that is really cool that they donate shoes to kiddies! My first thought was the striped ones, but once I thought about what they would go with I'm thinking the gray. But then again I love gray, so maybe its not a fair fight :)

  5. my bestie has a pair of tom's and she LOVES them - my vote is for the stripes!

  6. This year is just flying by. I can't believe it.

    I keep telling myself I'm going to get a pair of Toms, but the price is always too daunting. It's a good cause and I totally think it's worth it, I just never seem to have that much spare cash lying around. I REALLY want some of the wedges.

  7. Megan, I have this chevron dress! Great minds think alike my dear! You can wear mine ANY TIME!! Though I got a medium and you probably need a small. That's funny and it made me smile! :)OR, if you get one, we can each re-mix it and post about it. ;) Such a cute dress!

  8. I'm loving those cherry bomb jeffrey campbells so much!!!
