new loves and old friends: i'm with the band


old friends
boots and necklace~ vintage, thrifted

new loves
bolero~ F21
jeans and tank~ H&M

i have never been in a band, marching or otherwise, but i may have mentioned on the blog that it is actually my dream to someday front a cover band. megan's, too, actually. what do you guys think? should we do it? would you come see our shows? our cover band could be totally bird themed. we could sing songs by the eagles, the byrds, the counting crows, the yardbirds, the dixie chicks, the jayhawks, the black crowes, eagles of death metal. our fans would weep when we performed "blackbird" and dance like crazy to our rendition of "rockin' robin". the locals would love when we sang "when doves cry". our big duet would be "mockingbird". and, of course, our grand final would have to be "free bird". seriously. is is sad that i am actually getting excited by this idea? who knows? maybe someday two birds will be playing at a local county fair near you! but until then i suppose i will settle with singing karaoke and buying marching band inspired clothing.

i hope you all have a great thursday!

xoxo, nora bird


  1. LOL! You could close the show with "feed the birds, tuppence a bag" That would feed your families for life!

    I love your bolero :)

  2. That bolero is absolutely fabulous, and the necklace is so unique and is such a nice touch of color!

  3. I have ALWAYS had dreams of singing in a cover band too!! Even though the hours would be rough I think it would be so fun... you guys would rock it!

  4. Could I play tambourine and sing backup? That would be amazing.

    Also - I just remembered you were in my dream last night!! I was stranded at some truckstop-type bar, and you were my server. For some reason, I did not have any shoes, and you brought me a blanket so I could sleep in a booth. So kind!

  5. get excited! i think it's a grand idea. :) i'm serious. lovely outfit nora rockin robin free bird.

  6. I love your band idea! I'd totally be the groupie in the front row that comes up on stage and has to be thrown out by security!

    I love that bolero! It's really cute!
