love*birds: 10.10.12 (think pink)

things i am loving this week:
~ megan and i have been asked to style a fashion show this weekend and we couldn't be more excited! it is going to be seriously awesome and so much fun!
~ my baby boy has started smiling and it warms my heart every time i see it.
~ the battle rounds on The Voice. man, there are some great singers on that show!
~ squash. we got a ton in our CSA box and i have been experimenting with different recipes this week and they have all turned out deliciously!

and, in honor of breast cancer awareness month, here are a few pink things that we are loving this week...

i am sort of obsessed with this necklace. it is just really cool. and i think it has to be mine.

this is such a fun vintage dress! pink with sequins? sign me up!

seriously, how cute are these? i love the sweet bow detail and the unexpected little fish bone charm!

i want to wear these and pretend i am a ballerina! so cute and so cozy, too!

these are the kind of pants that i dream about being able to pull off. i'm not quite sure i can, but i might have to try!

i love the fun and unexpected mix of items in this ensemble that Marlen of Messages on a Napkin put together. oh, and the story about her smuggling vintage past her mom had me cracking up!

mimi and i had so much fun at the apple orchard last weekend with megan and her kids. it was cold freezing, but so much fun!

pink cape
i love the swing shape and bright color of this cape. it would spruce up any cold minnesota day!

pink faux fur cocoon wrap
i want this, i need this, i have to have this. i love faux fur, especially pink faux fur. this looks the coziest, too!

pink cowgirl boots
should i get these? seriously, they are my size. i love them. should i get them? i need someone else to tell me what to do!!!

pink crossbody canvas bag
i have been looking for a crossbody bag that is roomy and cute. this might be it. plus, a pop of pink in a purse is perfect (alliteration intended)!

paris in pink print
y'all need to check out this site. there are some of the prettiest photos all with this romantic, dreamy pink hue. i love this idea!!

robin from Frannie Pantz is looking great in her pink skinnies in this post. i love that she is wearing these vibrant springy colors at the beginning of fall. plus, who looks that great in a pair of skinny jeans??? (robin does.)

searching for apples
as nora mentioned, we took our kiddos to the apple orchard last weekend. they had the best time searching for apples and (illegally) climbing trees to pick them!

and (sorry i couldn't just pick one)
jumpy slide
eva and i had a girls' date on sunday...i caught this great action shot as she was bouncing down the slide. it just looks fun, doesn't it?

what are you loving this week???

xoxo, two birds

  10. So sweet, the pink post for breast cancer month! :) I love the instragram of the slide, and that pink cocktail dress is to die for as well as that pink cape!


  11. I love the pint necklace and pink pants! So cute!

  12. This was a dangerous post for my wallet - that collar! that cape! those leg warmers! They're all calling my name!

  13. that pink vintage dress has my name written all over it! I need it in my life.

  14. We went to that same apple orchard the other week too. I had to climb the trees to get some apples too. It was fun, I felt like a kid again :)

    Yes. Get the pink cowboy boots. I would love to be able to pull off a pair, but seeing them on you would be just as cool!!

  15. Megan I laugh everytime I look at that awesome photo of Eva with her hair standing straight up while sliding down. What a fantastic pic. Needs framing. I chuckled at the pink leg warmer comment about pretending to be a ballerina...too funny. They are seriously cute though. Great pink stuff this week. I can't wait to hear about your styling that fashion show...congrats. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  16. That's awesome you two will be styling a fashion show this weekend! Congrats!

  17. The pink party dress looks like the one in Back to the Future (the prom scene). The pink high pants and white shirt look like the pants I wore in the 80's when I worked at American Express (had to always dress nice for nobody -- nobody saw us but co-workers, lame) But I did love those pants then.

  18. Yay for pink! I love those pink pants and you could def pull them off Nora! And Megan, I think you should get the faux fur and the cowgirl boots! Very cute.


  19. Love all the pink things! That's great that you guys are doing a fashion show, can't wait to hear about that!

  20. I love the pink colar!! and congrats :-)

  21. Wow, that is so exciting that you two get to style a fashion show, I really hope you post pictures of it, I would love to see the looks you come up with. (It sounds like a ton of fun.)

    Those last two pictures are adorable, going to the apple orchard sounds like quite a fun day trip. (Blueberry picking is about the closest we have to that up here but kids always like putting stuff in baskets, so it's all good. ^_^)
