inspiration monday: starting over

the inspiration

megan bird



dress ~ vintage, thrifted
belt ~ vintage, thrifted
shoes ~ urban original
earrings ~ F21

nora bird



shirt ~ Liz Lange, maternity, Target
tank ~ Heartbreaker
jeggings ~ b. (a resale shop)
shoes ~ Chinese Laundry, thrifted
necklace ~ b. (a resale shop)

the family and i took advantage of some of the free earth day specials yesterday. free caribou coffee and a free full-size origins lotion to name two all of them. when we got to origins, we were given two choices of moisturizers. one was a preventative wrinkle lotion, and the other was a 'too bad you already have wrinkles, let's see what we can do about them' lotion. the (very young) woman asked me which one i would like, and i quickly said i would like the one that gets rid of wrinkles. as if to make sure i really needed it, the (very young) woman looked my face up and down very methodically a few times and said, "yep. ok!" buzz kill. i was kind of hoping she would have put up a bit of an argument on my behalf.

happy monday!
xoxo,
two birds

  6. Megan, that red dress rocks with that gold belt! And that shade of purple suits you well Nora. Thanks for the inspiration today, I had a lot of fun recreating the outfit.

  12. Don't you just looooove snotty sales clerks?! Totally ruins the fun. But hey, at least you got lots of lovely free things :)

    Those gold heels are the most killer shoes I've seen in quite some time. I spent like five mins admiring them.

  13. Do you want me to track her down and punch her in the face?! Then she'll have some wrinkles to cover up. People. Also, I forgot about the effing free Caribou-I am a failure!

  18. These looks are pretty on both of you. I love the spring colors paired with golden shoes. It is such a fun pop.

    Ha, yikes. I am sure the girl at origins didn't mean it.

  19. Clearly that girl hasn't done much customer service (or at least not well!). You both look gorgeous in these shades of pink. And I love how you coordinate with each other with the gold shoes!
