outfit of the day(bird): my room





tunic~ H&M, c/o of lovely Claire
leggings~ Simply Vera Wang, Kohls
boots~ Alloy

i must preface this story by saying that my daughter is such a sweet and kind little being...most of the time! but something crazy must have come over her yesterday morning. she was in her bedroom and i noticed she was being naughty and doing something that i did not want her to be doing. so, i kindly told her, "mimi, please stop doing that". to which she replied, "it's MY room"! and slammed the door in my face. i know what you are probably thinking...you're thinking, nora, that is a totally normal way for a thirteen-year-old girl to act. to which i must remind you, my daughter is only two. that's right. two. years. old...apparently going on thirteen. i thought i had at least ten more years before i had to deal with this kind of 'tude! what in the world am i going to do?

i have to give a huge shout out to the gorgeous and awesome claire of spinning threads. the other day i received from her a care package full of super cute maternity clothes (including this tunic)! seriously, how sweet is she? super sweet, that's how. thank you so much, claire! i am certain you will be seeing quite of few of your hand-me-downs on this blog in the weeks to come!

i hope you all have an awesome friday and a fabulous weekend!

xoxo, nora bird

  4. The plaid tunic looks so cute on you with the empire waist to flatter your bump!

    I guess that's why they call it the terrible twos! Hope she loses the attitude and turns back into your sweet little girl asap :) Have a great weekend!

  5. You look great! I'm sure your daughter will come to her senses soon enough... I love when kids are 3-5 years old, I think they're the cutest then!

  6. It's the terrible twos. I don't think you should have anything to worry about. I'm not an expert but did you talk to her about it? If it were me I would let her know what she did was rude and it hurt my feelings but be stern to let her know that it's really not her room because it's your house and open a conversation about it. But what do I know we don't have kids. I just know what my Dad would've done. Is it possible to be straight forward with a two year old? Keep us posted.

    Love the tunic with the boots.

  14. Maternity hand-me-downs are the best - cuz who wants to spend a bunch of money on clothes you'll only wear for a couple of months?! And you look super cute in this.:)

    With two daughters in this house, I totally feel your pain.;)

  17. Really cute top! I love a good hand-me-down. Sounds like parenting a 2-year-old is good practice for parenting a teen ... :)

  20. Taht was such a fun story, my son does almost the same thing, anytime he wants to be naughty, he goes to his room and yells at anyone who tries to come in. Ahh, kids!
    On another note, you looks totally adorable, I love this tunic top. And you have the cutest haircute EVER.

  22. I'm sure that all girls have attitude, even when they're that young. And if this was a one time occurence, I wouldn't worry about it....in fact, maybe this will just give you training for when she is a teen!

    Also, super cute maternity outfit and you pull short hair off so so so well.
