inspiration monday: secondhand outfit notes

the inspiration
olivia wilde
megan bird



 jeans ~ The Clothes Mentor
shoes, shirt ~ thrifted
watch ~ Cents of Style
earrings ~ Target

nora bird



shirt ~ Target
jeans ~ Old Navy
booties ~ Shoe Dazzle

~ when buying my jeans, i put my hands in the pockets and pulled out a band-aid. if they hadn't been pretty much exactly what i was looking for, i might have not bought them. also, this is exactly why i keep hand sanitizer in my purse.
~ i wore my shirt to impress my son. he is fascinated with wolves, and lately, not so fascinated with me. the shirt impressed him, and i was happy.
~ when i found these shoes at the thrift shop, there was no tag on them. it was also 50% off purple tag items that day. when i brought them up to pay, they informed me they would be $7.99 and i promptly said, "purple tag, right?" she agreed. so my shoes were only $4.00. it never hurts to ask, right?

happy monday!
xoxo,
two birds

  4. Both of your animal tees are SO cute! A few years ago before we had our dogs, my hubby really wanted to get a wolf-dog hybrid but I convinced him that wolves are not pets :)
