love*birds: 7.18.12

things i am loving this week:
~ White Collar. ever seen it? lately, i have been super good about keeping up with the laundry during mimi's naps just so i have an excuse to sit, fold laundry and watch the show on netflix! it is definitely not the best show on tv, but it is entertaining. and matt bomer is the lead actor. 'nuff said.
~ our dear dear friends, the mchughs, just moved to minneapolis from santa barbara. we seriously couldn't be more excited to have them here!
~ we have picked a name for our boy!!! i won't announce it here until he is born, but i love it and am so happy.
~ speaking of our baby boy, i will officially be full term on saturday! the countdown has begun. we will get to meet him soon!

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

nora bird
slouchy horse tee

i love this slouchy, oversized tee. the painted horse print is awesome. this is something i would wear almost every day if it were mine. in fact, i would like quite a few of the tees in this shop! (one for each day of the week, perhaps?)

statement cocktail ring

this retro orange is one of my favorite colors. and i love the size and shape of this statement piece. so cool.

crochet headband

i am growing out my hair and have been wearing a lot of scarves and headbands. i would love to add this adorable crocheted one to my collection. and i just might have to!

metallic accent wedge

gojane is having a sale on all of their wedges right now. i definitely don't need any new shoes, but these might be hard to pass up!

retro toucan lamp

seriously, with this lamp? so awesome.

vivienne really got me thinking with this post about ethical shopping. i think i am doing pretty well, according to her scale, but i will definitely try to be more mindful now when i shop. and doing some research of my own about ethical shopping.

megan and chris came over on saturday to help us christen our new patio! i am excited for when i can enjoy my very own adult beverage out there! soon!

megan bird
mint chocolate chip dress
i am a sucker for a unique dress. if it has a fun print, a cute cut-out or a unique silhouette, i am drawn to it like a moth to a flame. add a name that has one of my favorite ice cream flavors in it and i'm sold!

betsey johnson vintage dress
the 70s might be my favorite decade for clothing. and this dress doesn't disappoint. the gold, the wrap feel, the full skirt...i love it all!

gnome plush toys
i know these are technically called toys or dolls, but i want to line them up on my couch and call them pillows. they are too cute!

canvas cork wedges
i am not sure that i own any pink shoes. ok, maybe i do...but not this color pink. that's enough of a reason to by these beauties, right?

three baubles necklace
i love tassels. i love them on shoes, clothing, jewelry. and then add some layering, some pretty stone and've won me over, beautiful necklace!

i want to duplicate this house and call it my own. seriously, everything about it.

megan the riveter
keesha taught me how to tie a rosie scarf in this post, and while i don't quite do it justice, it was a perfect way to cover my unwashed hair and to hide the frizz from the 100% humidity we experienced last weekend!
