~ mimi and i went on a long walk yesterday and didn't even need mittens. thank you, crazy, 55 degree january day!
~ i slept through the whole night last night. and that never happens!
~ did i mention that there is ice cream cake in my future?

and here are a few other things we are loving...

nora bird's picks

i am totally in love with this purse. the color, the wooden closure, the chain strap, the corduroy. i love it all!

i don't know when or where i would ever wear a gold, brocade wiggle dress. but if this were mine i might just wear it every day! so gorgeous!

lately, i have been a bit obsessed with trying to find a nice pair of corduroy skinnies. these ones are the perfect color. plus, they are on sale! bonus!

this print is so delicate and so beautiful. i really think this needs to be hanging in my home.

i have an old pair of sea green platforms that i have literally worn to death. i think it is time i replaced them. and these adorable shoes would be the perfect ones to take their place.

megan bird's picks

vintage wrap shawl sweater dress
i am in love with this piece. i can imagine how many ways i could and would style it right now. seriously, so many ways. (do i need to damn the shopping ban every week? damn you shopping ban!)

vintage figurine
this little guy would fit in perfectly at my house. i would find a little nook for him and throw him in with the other miscellanea filling my home.

vintage deer pitcher
can you think of a better way to serve bloody marys at the cabin on a sunny sunday morning? i can't.

1970s nordic print sweater
i love the vibrant colors of this beautiful vintage cardigan. and the style, and the buttons, and everything else. gorgeous!

mona mia layla orange wedges
i plan on adding more orange to my wardrobe (as soon as i can start shopping again). these would be the perfect addition to add just the right amount of color! love!

  8. I love getting magazines in the mail too! I have one of those wrap shawl thingies - maybe I after I wear it (now that I'm inspired to wear it with a belt heh), I can send it you Megan? It would be fun to send it to a loving home. It's exactly the same thing except cream navy and red with rose shapes.

  14. Orange has been my fave color for the last year -- perfect with Pantone's new tangerine color of the year!
