love*birds: 11.7.12

things i am loving this week:
~ minnesota! i have always loved my state, but i have never been as proud to call myself a minnesotan as i am today.
~ i don't want to get too political on the blog, but i am very happy that the presidential election is finally over and we can all move forward!
~ sleep. ben has been sleeping five to six hours straight at night and only waking up once to eat. i hope he continues on this trend!
~ "heat" waves in november. it is supposed to get into the 60s today!
~ coffee. after staying up too late last night, it is tasting really good this morning.

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

nora bird
feather ring

i love this feather ring. so delicate and pretty.

kimono clutch

not only is this clutch gorgeous, it is made from a vintage kimono. how cool is that?

vintage map

i really really want this vintage map of my wonderful home state!

hooded scarf

i can't let this heat wave trick me. i know it's about to get really really cold here really soon. and what would be more perfect in the freezing cold than this chunky, hooded scarf? love it!

colorblocked cape

speaking of keeping warm...this vintage cape would be such a great layering piece. warm and cozy while still being fashionable. gotta love that!

i love a cozy outfit...especially one inspired by megan bird! and beth of The Fashionable Adventures of Bethie the Boo looks cute and cozy in her flannel and leggings in this post. perfect weekend outfit!

raking with dad

mimi "helping" jim out with some yard work. warms my heart.

megan bird
hooded cape top
what's not to like about this? it's big and cozy. it's hooded and pocketed. did i mention how cozy it is? want.

vintage pleated maxi dress
i love the color and pleats and floral top on this dress!

swan shift dress
i love the asymmetrical cut of this dress, but even more so, i love the swan print. (gracey, do you love it?)

silver heart necklace
while i normally opt for "look at me" sort of statement necklaces, i think this one make a delicate statement of its own. i love the sweet little heart!

leather strap riding boots
i have been seeing a lot of strap/embellished boots on blogs lately, which prompted my search for these. i didn't think i'd come up with something this cute!! too bad i'm not a 6.5!

speaking of swan dresses, i am loving gracey, of Fashion for Giants, in this swan print dress. she has such style and dare i say it "grace", and i love how she puts outfits together!

if any of you follow me on instagram (@meglets), you will have already seen the multitude of pictures from our trip to see the thunder from down under. this picture was taken pre-show. (the rest of the pictures from that night include greasy men and beers.)

what are you loving today???

xoxo, two birds


  1. This is the best post. I loved everything about it. The feather ring, the kimono purse, the cape, both capes and the riding boots. You are making it tough not to shop. Will I make it until spring? What a fantastic photo of the 4 looks like an album cover or at least it should be. Thank you both for the mention to read my spam. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  2. why are old maps so much more appealing than new ones…?

    I want one of those hooded capes… I can then skulk around in the mornings, hood up, until I'm properly awake.
