love*birds: 7.27.11

last night chris and i had a super mellow night. the kids were at grandma and grandpa's (that happens a lot in the summer) so we went out to eat. i had the biggest, best bowl of vegetarian noodle soup with steamed tofu, and chris had a yummy mock duck stir fry. if you live in (or ever visit) the twin cities area, make it a point to go to jasmine deli. it is cheap, delicious and the service is great. then we headed over to the ice cream shop owned by jasmine deli and got a pistachio gelato. and then we leisurely drove around each lake in the chain of lakes near our house. it was a gorgeous night. driving around the lakes made me laugh because i always thought of a date consisting of merely driving was something old people do...i guess i'm on my way! nevertheless, it was a wonderful night. one of the top things that i love: date nights. here are a few other things that i love...
megan bird's picks
vintage polka dot pin-up dress
 i can see this dress in the summer with sandals, and in the winter with a cardigan. cause it's too cute to just wear for one season! and it has the cutest little cut-out detail in the back. so cute!

green sleeves maxi dress

i have been on the look out for a long-sleeved maxi dress. this might be the one. the color is fabulous. the sleeves are beautiful. and the detailing at the bust is gorgeous! in love.
jeffrey campbell for-sure rainbow platforms
i love you, lulus...please send me all of your shoes! summer is not over yet, and like the polka dot dress, i'm pretty sure i'd wear these even in the coldest of winter days.

sassy pants vintage overalls
i have been toying with the idea of buying some vintage overalls. i was thinking high-waisted pants, but then i saw these. they'd look cute with those rainbow platforms...

hey jade modcloth necklace
what can i say about this necklace? it's a perfect color, a perfect size, a perfect statement. love.

nora bird's picks

all i have to say about these pants is that they are gorgeous. and i love them so. and i think i need them.

i have been on the lookout for the perfect one piece swimsuit and i think i may have found it! i love the red and white stripes and the black sash detail. just lovely.

love. these. shoes. i agree with megan. lulu's can send me all of their vegan shoes! thank you!

this necklace would be such a great statement piece. and it come in turquoise and lime! i think i want both.

the perfect thrifting bag! small and lightweight but looks like it could fit all the necessities. and i just love the cross body strap and the color. 

have a happy wednesday!

xoxo, two birds

  2. I was going to the suit! That's a winner.

  3. i love the green dress! i would totally pair it with the green modcloth necklace. have you tried on a long sleeved maxi yet? i wonder if it would overwhelm a petite frame. i'm always worried about looking like a girl in a muumu.

    and aren't night drives the best? we are old. haha.

    awkardly chic

  4. that polka dot dress is adorable!!!!

  5. I love all the picks today! I just bought a pair of vintage hawaiian print shortalls and I LOVE them but it seems I'm the only one. :)

  6. I'm loving the Jeffrey Campbell shoes, as always, and those red pants.

  7. Oh, date night sounds fabulous. And I love the green dress - I'm not sure it'd be a maxi at my height, but it's beautiful. And so is the Modcloth necklace.

  8. i'm on the lookout for a pair of nude heels, and wedges
