nora bird's picks

gosh, this is just the perfect spring, floral dress. so so so pretty!

i am in love with these shoes. the gray and yellow colorblocking is subtle, but just so cool. they will be mine.

so bright and fun and bold! i want to wear this skirt every day.

love the color. love the braid detail. awesome springtime scarf. this will also be mine.

oh man, i want this dress. i love the kind of 90s, grunge-y feel of it, but the floral makes it feel ladylike. love it!

megan bird's picks
state coffee table
three things i love in furniture are kitch, a vintage feel and uniqueness. these tables have all three qualities. i can see minnesota sitting in my living room very soon!

grecian convertible dress
this is a summer staple. a maxi dress with a beautiful print and options on how you wear it. yes, please. i see myself sipping cocktails on the patio in this dress!

upcycled lace dress
while i think a lot of people use the word upcycled a little too freely these days, i think this dress is the true definition of upcycled. it used to be a beautiful tablecloth, and now it is an even more beautiful dress! genius!

colorblock heel
as i am typing, i'm wondering if i've featured these shoes before on a love*birds post. possibly, but that's how much i love them!

vintage necklace
it's vintage, it's milk glass, it's pink rhinestones. need i say more?

what are you loving this week?
have a terrific wednesday!!
