outfit of the day(bird)





dress~ hand-me-down from little sister
necklace~ b. (a resale shop)
tights~ Target
booties~ F21

not every single outfit i wear is fabulous. i mean, it's not like i ever really wear anything horribly offensive or inappropriate, but not every single ensemble can be deemed fabulous. sometimes often times almost all the time, i just like to throw on a cute and comfy dress and be done with it. take this outfit, for example. it is cute enough. i really like the dress. the color is fun and it is comfy as all get out. but it is not really anything to write home about. can you imagine if i did, though? if my parents, who live approximately a mile away, received the following letter in the mail:

dear mom and dad,
today i wore a really comfy black and purple, colorblock dress with a scoop neck and a sweet button detail. i paired it simply, with black tights and booties. then i stood in my backyard and did some silly poses while taking photos of myself which i plan to post on the internet. 
i hope all is well with you! love you!
love, nora

yeah...they might find that a bit strange..even coming from me.

xoxo, nora bird

  2. oh. my. gosh. love that letter home to mom and dad. i have a few things to say. 1) i feel SO STUPID taking pics of myself orrrrrrr even having my hubs take pics of me. i feel dumb being photographed by myself. period. 2) my job works in cycles, and i have 3 week stretches off, sometimes longer and i wear hoodies and pj pants or jeans every. day. as a matter of fact, even when i do work, it takes lots of extra motivation to put together an outfit. my good days consist of skinny jeans, boots, random plain shirt, scarf. when people see me workin that hard, they are like, "you look cute today." sad, i know. thanks for letting me write a novel of a comment on your wall. happy thursday!

  3. This dress is super cute. I love the colors & that you paired it with black tights. That's my favorite kind of look. Effortless. I love your letter to your mom & dad.

  5. Ha. Ha. Ha. Best post I've read in a while. Thank you.

    For a not fabulous outfit, this is pretty fabulous, though. My not fabulous outfit of yesterday consisted of Uggs, jeans, and a sweatshirt. Ew.

  6. This made me laugh.
    And this is much more fabulous than my non-fabulous outfits--which are usually some jeans which I forgot to wash so have chalk/paint/general mess on them, and a badly fitting top and my dad's jumper.

  7. Ha! I guess that is basically what my blog is... a note to my mom, that a few other people read. It's funny, now when I don't post on a weekday without warning in advance, my mom assumes I have died and immediately calls me.

  8. haha. This post is cute. I know what you mean though, I often just throw on a comfy/acceptable thing and go - you can't get all dolled up all the time, right? Ok, maybe some people do but... anywho, getting off on a tangent. I think this dress is really cute and flattering on you :]

  12. Very funny, and entirely relatable. Pretty takes work and some days are for comfy more than pretty. I think it's masterful the way you bring the two together here. Bravo!

  18. Dresses are better than sweats for comfort, I swear. I live in them. I really think you should write home about that one.;)
