outfit of the day(bird): fancy pants




shirt/leggings~ F21
tank top~ Heartbreaker
necklace~ vintage, thrifted
boots~ Alloy

i got these floral leggings for my birthday and wore them for the first time on tuesday. when jim got home from work on tuesday evening, he looked me up and down and said, "you look really nice! those pants are cute!" that's right. he totally thought my leggings were pants. and he thought they were cute. i shouldn't brag too much, though. when your husband normally comes home to you wearing your comfiest comfy pants, an old flannel, no makeup, possibly un-showered, maybe covered in baby drool or spit up (and still tells you that you look beautiful)...well, then a pair of floral pants leggings and a necklace is, i'm sure, a welcome surprise. hopefully he won't read this and find out that these are not, in fact, actual pants and that they are just as comfy as my comfiest comfy pants!

p.s. sorry for the blurry photos. it gets dark so early now and jim and i haven't quite figured out how to use our camera during the twilight hours. i vow to learn how to properly use my camera one of these days!

xoxo, nora bird

  2. So fun! Love the floral and they are such a sweet demure look with still a good amount of playfulness.

  3. Those ARE cute pants/leggings! And I hear on the picture taking - hard to get a good shot in the semi-darkness. I'm ready for spring already (for so many reasons!).

  6. You look awesome! I'm ok with leggings as pants as long as you have a longer or looser top on - and yours is! Those boots are bad ass too!

  8. I love this look on you Nora! Super cute! I have floral jeggings and I might have to try and copy this somehow, I like it that much!

    I haven't figured out the lighting on my camera in these darker days either. I'll figure it out eventually!

  13. nora! very nice! i love your entire ensemble. glad your husband thought it was nice, too. i know. we get so familiar with our husband's that we don't always realize we need to look good, too.

    i always have to remember that he fell in love with me at my best [at a dance, where i was a man magnet]. i need to remember he loved that look and the slouchy morning hair and robe just are not his fav. lol
