love*birds: 7.10.13

things i am loving this week:
~ getting back to the gym after a long and lazy weekend. sometimes a little break from working out is nice, but it always feels amazing to get back at it!
~ organizing! jim and i have been going a wee bit crazy with the home organization lately. and it's pretty awesome!
~ maxi skirts and dresses. it's been hot and humid and i have been living in them! so easy and breezy and comfy!
~ dance parties with my kids. we have one almost every day and i love to watch them rock out! they are quite the little dancers!
~ mimi not only dances, but she has taken to singing along to the radio, super loudly, in the car. i will admit, she may get that from her mama!
~ ben is starting to talk a bunch and i love the sound of his little voice. he also waves and says "bye bye!" which is about the cutest thing ever.

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

nora bird
high-waisted shorts

i am madly in love with these shorts. they would be an awesome addition to my summer wardrobe! although, i might not ever take them off.

arrowhead bracelet

this is such a sweet little bangle. i love the arrowhead charm! this would be a great stacking piece.

tribal print maxi dress

please see above about my maxi dress obsession. i might need to add this one to the mix. i love the slit. so cute!

hand-dyed clutch

this casual clutch is just so cool. the hand-dyed print is gorgeous. and it looks like it could fit a lot of stuff, which i love.

peplum top

this top is so sweet and girly! the heart print is adorable. this is a perfect date night top!

Strike a Pose

i love the perfect mix of girly and edgy in this outfit. ramona is rocking it in those adorable pink skinnies, the coolest camo vest ever, and some fun leopard loafers!

i feel like it's been forever since we've hung out on megan and chris's patio. but we got to for a couple of fun hours on saturday, before we had to take the kids home for bedtime. next time, we will get a sitter and stay all night!

megan bird

bonny naranja vintage sunglasses
these sunglasses are so fun. i love the shape and the color! what a way to add something unique to a summer outfit!

ikat maxi dress
i love how summery this dress is. the colorful ikat print is a perfect contrast to the crisp white skirt!

woodland bamboo brooches
do accessories get any cuter than this? i think not! these are adorable, plus they are eco-friendly...can't beat that!

lily pulitzer elephant print skirt
i just might need to get this. i think many of us have a great fascination with animals on our clothing, but red and blue elephants on a skirt are maybe one of the cutest!!

teal canvas tote bag

i have been hemming and hawing about starting to wear a bigger bag these days. truth is, i love my smaller purses, but things get lost in the small ones just as easily as in the big ones. so i might as well get this, right???

Sincerely, Sara
i love me a cute romper. and while sara admits that they aren't the easiest article of clothing to wear, this one sure is adorable. she looks amazing, right?

follow along @meglets
eva, being the strong six-year old that she is, decided on saturday that she wanted her hair cut. she picked the style and very definitively told the stylist what she wanted. and man, is it bad to be jealous of your daughter's hair? because i am.

what are you loving today?

xoxo, two birds
