new loves and old friends

i scored these shoes this weekend while out thrifting with megan (i know! can you even believe we were out thrifting??? so surprising.). i saw them from afar and loved them immediately. lucky for me they just happened to be my size! they are such a great summer shoe. and, you guys, they are so flippin' comfy! bonus! i can tell you right now they will get worn a lot. they are such a fun, bright green, so i though maybe i should tone down the rest of my outfit. maybe some navy blue and white. nothing too flashy. then i thought again...and ended up throwing my favorite red vintage top. why not, right???







old friends:

blouse- vintage, garage sale

new loves:

shoes- j crew, thrifted
tank- julie's closet, marshalls
jeans- F21
ring- H&M

it is a super gorgeous outside today! i am off for a walk with the little one. i hope you all have a fabulous day!

xoxo, nora bird

  1. Those shoes are fabulous. And I really am starting to think I need to make a thrifting trip to the Cities sometime very soon. Maybe in celebration of the end of my shopping ban?

  5. You look so cute! This might sound crazy...but I never knew how you were supposed to wear shoes with really long ties like that! I've passed up many a pair because they were just too confusing for me, but now I know!

  9. Love your "new love"! I love the green shoes Megan found for me when she was thrifting. I actually only found one or two things for myself on Monday, after going to FOUR thrift stores. A whole bag of stuff for the sale though. I put it aside for an upcoming sale preview photo shoot. They are my favorite. :) You look so beautiful! All springy and happy! :)

  12. Wow! The color and style are so cool! That's really lucky to find it in your size, too! I always feel especially special when something like that happens to me. Like I should run and get a lotto ticket or something haha.

  18. Those shoes are great - when you find such beautiful shoes in your size it was clearly meant to be! I also like that the rest of your outfit is colourful too.
