outfit of the day(bird): best outfit




cardigan~ H&M
shirt~ b. (a resale shop)
leggings~ TJ Maxx
shoes~ thrifted

this isn't the most exciting or the coolest outfit i have ever worn, but they can't all be the best. i suppose that technically only one outfit can ever be the best. i wonder if i have worn my "best outfit ever" yet? and if not, when i do, will i know it? will i put it on and think, "yep. this is it. this is the one. i will never again don anything better. i am clothed to the max, completely spruced up, primped out, trimmed to the greatest degree. you've heard of sunday best, well this is life's best"! i doubt it. i'd like to think that we all have our good fashion days and our not so good, but that, in terms of style, we are constantly learning what works and growing and experimenting and getting better with age. always striving to find our own personal style. what do you think? am i getting to deep for a friday? am i thinking too deeply about this at all? perhaps...they are only clothes, after all. so, i will cut myself off from rambling on and on and leave you with wishes for a fabulous friday!*

happy friday! have a great weekend!

xoxo, nora bird

* i apologize. this is what happens when i sit down at the computer with absolutely no clue what i am going to write about.

  5. I love this outfit. As soon as I saw the pics I was coveting your shoes and the tie in with the sweater. You always look so put together.

  6. I love the shoes! A fun pop of color... And, yes I do have my best outfits and my bad outfits. When I'm wearing not so bad, but definitely could have pulled myself together more nicely, I always feel like "GEEZ what am i wearing?!"

  7. Your lime green shoes are so cute with the striped cardigan! I agree that sometimes we have off fashion days and other days our outfits look exceptionally put together. I strive for more good outfits than bad :) Have a great weekend!

  10. Love the chartreuse flats, great unexpected pop of color. I think all we can do is have fun and be comfortable in our clothes. There are outfits my DH sees me in and says you look like a muppet or Bettlejuice which doesn't stop me from wearing something. In the end it's how I feel in the outfit and at times I look back and the feeling has passed.

  12. Your shoes are so great! I think you need different categories for outfits so the word "best" can have more context. Examples: Best special occasion outfit, Best I have ever looked while feeling crappy outfit, Best outfit for eating cinnamon rolls in, Best long car drive outfit... Happy Friday!
