outfit of the day(bird): the amazing coconut oil




cardigan~ H&M
necklace~ petit oiseau
shirt/booties~ F21
belt~ thrifted
jeans~ thrifted

warning: this post is about potty training. i apologize.

jim and i have been attempting to potty train mimi for the last few months (yeah, it is not going that well). we have been trying to teach her to recognize when she has to go and to tell us when she feels the need. lately, when she has to go, she will say one of two things. she will tell us that her tummy hurts or she will say, "mama, there is a poop in my body!" and then we will know to get her on the potty straight away. so, yesterday when she yelled, "mama. my bottom hurts!" i immediately asked if she needed to go potty...to which she replied, "no mama, i just need some coconut oil." apparently, even mimi knows about the magic of coconut oil and it's ability to cure diaper rash. megan's praise for the stuff has spread far and wide and reached all the way to the two-year-old set! pretty amazing. but when your kid can tell you she has diaper rash she is clearly too old to be in diapers, right? i know, i know. we're working on it...

again, i am sorry for all this potty talk. these are the exciting stories in my life these days...

happy friday!

xoxo, nora bird

  1. Nora I had to read where you got those booties. I love how they look with your jeans. Perfect day bird garb. Even I bought the coconut oil. Imagine no diapers for Mimi. Money in your pocket. Dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  4. LOL, potty training stories are actually pretty funny. I get a kick out of them. I'm sure if I ever have a child and am in the same shoes I might not find them so entertaining though! I love coconut oil even works on diaper rash!

    Love the polka dot shirt and those booties - I hope to find some booties this weekend! I'm going to look anyway!

  5. Ha! I think coconut is magical too (put a scoopful of it in my coffee, use it on my skin and hair)...but didn't know about it's uses for rashes! I got to learn something new today!

    Cute outfit...I especially love your booties. Have a great day! :) Amanda

  11. I totally get it - when I was potty training it was probably all I talked about.

    And clearly I need to get myself to F21 soon - super cute!:)

  12. LOL Aw potty training. My daughter was actually WAY easier to train than my boys. My oldest son was the hardest. But don't worry, when they get it, they'll get it and you'll all be super pumped!!! I love all your navy layers today!

  14. Super look, although I must confess that when I first read the title I thought the coconut oil WAS the outfit...just awake here!

    I always found it easier to potty train boys; just float a cheerio in the bowl and get them to 'sink' it, lol.

  15. Love the monochrome-ish outfit and those are the perfect nude booties! I put coconut oil on my face the other day while I was cooking dinner (with coconut oil) and got a VERY sidelong glance from Nate. And I was like what? A little for the falafel, a little for my face, it does everything!

  16. "there is poop in my body!" ... PRICELESS! coconut oil works magically for all kinds of skin trauma. smart child!

  18. lol. That story is hilarious. My little sister is trying to potty train my niece (she'll pee, but that's it) and it involves a lot of crying and craziness.

    Have a great weekend!
