outfit of the day(bird): less clothes, more dragons




scarf~ from a friend
shirt~ F21
jeans~ Zara, b. (a resale shop)
bracelet~ H&M
boots~ Bamboo

i know you don't want to hear about the weather. i know. and i'm sorry...but it is dang cold here. yesterday was -30 degrees with the wind chill. i should have stayed in the house under a mountain of blankets all day, but yesterday morning, megan, mimi and i braved the chill to go to a fun dance class at the gym and then take advantage of a 50% off sale at savers. while wandering the aisles of the store, i said to mimi, "let's go look at clothes for you and ben." to which she replied, "mama, i have plenty of clothes. plenty. and so does ben. we just don't need any more right now." and, of course, she was right. they do have enough clothes at the moment. (although, we both could have used a few more layers at the time.) and so we left the store empty handed. but not before a very small tantrum about how we were leaving without the giant, stuffed, hot pink dragon that mimi just had to have. when i said, "but mimi, you have plenty of stuffed animals. you just don't need anymore." she replied, "yes mama, but i don't have any pink dragons." good point, kid. nonetheless, we went home dragonless. and when we got there, we snuggled under a pile of blankets for the rest of the day.

i hope you are all staying warm!

xoxo, nora bird

  4. Holy crap that is cold! It snowed here last night and it's cold/super windy here, ugh. I'm counting the days till spring.

    Mimi made a pretty good argument for the dragon, I must say :)

  6. Hey i'm a Minnesota blogger too so i totally do want to commiserate about the weather with you! XD WHEN is it going to be warmer!??!

    I'm bummed to hear i missed a sale day at Savers. I've gone on their website to try to find a calendar of their sale days and have never been able to find it. :(

    And lastly, you are rocking those wide leg jeans! You obviously are made of much tougher stuff than I to stand outside and take pictures with no coat! Now following! :)

  7. She is a smart one! And I think I would say something if it was -30 outside, too! I think cold is my only fear when it comes to my upcoming move to Chicago. Eek!

    Also, I like everything about that outfit, especially the jeans and the bracelet. So cute.

  13. Those flared jeans are so amazing on you! My kids tell me they don't care about clothes too, but they NEVER have enough stuffed animals. Oi.

  16. Ha ha, Mimi is clever! Must say, I'd have loved the hot pink dragon too! Mind you, I have one in my reception (equivalent to Kindergarten) class- she has a pink coat (hot) and a pink furry dragon hat and pink furry monster claw gloves!! I call her 'Monster Munch' because she looks like the pink monster on top of British crisps- Monster Much Beef Flavour!!!

  17. We all need at least one pink dragon! Lovely post today. Love the flared jeans. I have a pair that I want to wear soon. They are hemmed quite long and I have to wait until the weather is nice enough for me to wear the single pair of shoes that work with the length. I've been seeing a few pairs of flared jeans on pinterest, so I'm thinking they might be trending this spring.
