love*birds: 5.2.12

things i am loving this week:
~ my little sister is coming to town tomorrow night! i am so excited to see her and hang out all weekend!
~ my best friend will also be in town this weekend for her baby shower. i have not seen her in person since she has been pregnant and i am so excited! we are both due within weeks of one another! fun!!!
~ i had a doughnut on monday and on tuesday and i am craving one today...and i don't even like doughnuts (usually). apparently my baby does, though!
~ thunderstorm season is upon us. i love thunderstorms!
~ i think we may be able to officially turn off our heat this week. yay!

and here are a few other things we are loving this week:

nora bird

i love the cute shape and pretty colors of this mini skirt, but my favorite part is the print. look closely. yes, those are cats in a garden! adorable!

this necklace is so simple, yet so cool. i feel like this would be one of those pieces i would wear every day!

this wedge is totally awesome. i can see these going with pretty much any outfit. it might just be the perfect summer shoe!

i am in love with the gorgeous feather print on these cards. imagine getting one of these pretties in the mail. i think that would make my day!

such an adorable set of wooden rings. i am loving the colors. and they would be so fun to mix and match!

megan bird
vintage patchwork long pillow cover
i'm pretty sure i need these pillows for the "kitchen" benches in the scamp (which doubles as a bed, so these would be perfect for cuddling up to, as well!)

sailboat vintage dress
i'm not a boat person, but i could definitely be a boat dress person! this would be the perfect dress to start my collection!

vintage woven necklace
i'm giving myself until the end of the day. if this isn't sold by then, i'm pretty sure it will be mine! (that's called self control, people.)

colorblocked swing dress
speaking of self control, i have stopped myself about 10 times from buying this dress. and now, of course, they don't have my size anymore. *stupid self control*

zigzag glitter shoe
it's got chevrons. it's got glitter. it's got a wedge. it's got a super tall wedge. it's got to be mine!

what are you loving this week?

two birds


  1. Aw, have a blast with your little sister and best friend! How exciting.

    Loving those feather cards and that sailboat dress - I can totally picture the birds in that dress ;)

  2. That cat skirt is adorable. I already have a cat print blouse. Would having a cat skirt too scream "Crazy Cat Lady"?

  8. that cat skirt rocks my world, as does that sail boat dress! Have a fun-tastic weekend and mow down as many donuts as possible (that's half the fun of being preggo right?!) XO Lori

  9. Love that skirt, though waaay too short for my 50 year old legs!

  15. Thank you so much for featuring my chevron necklace! I'm so excited to see the reactions!
    I LOVE the colorblock dress you also picked.
    Enjoy the baby shower and thanks again!

  16. I love thunderstorms. One summer I worked at a nude hot springs in the Sierra Nevada's above Lake Tahoe and the thunderstorms were amazing.

    I also love that sailboat dress; I just finished hemming a vintage sailboat skirt and I'm obsessed with boat clothes now.

    And the gold necklace? Yeah, that might have to be mine.

  17. lovely love picks! The feather cards and the rings and zig zag shoes are some of my favorites! They are now in my pinspiration!
