outfit of the day(bird): dance party




dress~ F21
shoes~ Colin Stuart
scarf~ bought on the beach
earrings~ gift from my mother-in-law
necklaces~ Etsy and vintage
cuff~ garage sale

as i have mentioned, the reason we were in mexico was for a wedding of some dear friends. after the ceremony, while the wedding party was taking photos, there was a cocktail party, and being served were the most delicious mojitos i have ever had. they were also very easy to drink and the waiters would immediately bring you a new one when they saw that yours was empty. so, i was drinking mine pretty slowly so as not to get too tipsy too soon. jim, however, was not taking it as easy. after dinner (and more drinks) there was dancing. jim, who usually doesn't dance much (but is actually a great dancer), was raring to go. he pulled me out on the dance floor and away we went. we were cutting a rug like nobody's business. it was so much fun! the whole night, jim kept calling us "america's best dance team", which was hilarious. and during the ten minute walk back to our hotel that night, jim could not stop talking about dancing. how much he loved dancing and wanted to go dancing all the time when we got back home. "we were america's best dance team! we were so awesome! we have to dance more often. i can't believe <insert name of a friend> wasn't dancing with us! it was so fun! america's best dance team!!!" and, while i have a feeling that we won't be going out dancing as much as was promised that night, i do plan on taking him up on the offer sometime soon! so, look out minneapolis! america's best dance team is on the loose and ready to boogie!

happy friday!

xoxo, nora bird

  1. I love it!!!! Amazing how a few (or many) beverages can make men want to dance. Ian is the same way. Weddings are so fun, it sounds like this one was a blast!

  3. I am in love with that dress! How fun! Also, now that my hair is finally really growing, I have to decide what to do with it - I think I'm going to aim for a style much like yours, but I'm afraid of the growing-out process. :P

  4. That dress is SO pretty on you and it's perfect for a Mexican wedding! Sounds like you had a wonderful time! I don't think there's enough alcohol in the world to get my hubby to dance, haha.

  9. I love dancing. I wish I had the opportunity to do it more often. My husband and I took Tango dance lessons for a couple of years and really enjoyed it. It's sad that it is so dang expensive otherwise we never would have stopped.

    That colour is gorgeous on you.
