love*birds: 9.25.13

things i am loving this week:
~ i deep cleaned the kids room on saturday, and they have kept them spotless since then.
~ granted, i had to bribe them.
~ however, they are easy to bribe...clean rooms until christmas, and they get a giant sucker. that's it.
~ the weather is phenomenal – warm and sunny and beautiful!
~ i actually got to run in the sunshine on sunday. i normally run at 5am in the dark, but we went at 8 instead, and it made a world of difference on my morale!
~ nora and i are styling and hosting a fashion show at our local mall this weekend. we are so excited!!
~ we booked another camping weekend. i love fall camping. it gets chilly, but it's a good excuse for a fire and snuggles.

and here are some other things we are loving this week:

megan bird

i love this necklace. i have wanted a personalized necklace with my kids initials on it, but haven't found one that suite me perfectly. this might be it!

oversized feather tee
i love the color and print on this tee. if i could live in cute oversized tees everyday, i think i would!

1950s wiggle dress

i think there is nothing sexier than a vintage black wiggle dress. the toule panel makes it sexier, and the bow makes it flirty. i love this dress!

vintage fringe booties

i don't know when i'd have occasion to wear white fringe booties, but i'm sure i could find one (or make one up). i am in love with these...the metal toe detail is brilliant!

i am a huge fan of turquoise jewelery. i love this ring, i love the lead design, and the big chunky feel to it. it's a gorgeous piece that stands out all on its own!

Winnipeg Style
 rebecca has such a fun and unique sense of style. i am in love with the pants in this post. she looks so fresh and fun in this colorful outfit! her whimsical bag adds to the fun!

there is something so sweet about henry reading to eva in this pic. any time they aren't fighting just melts my heart, but this was especially sweet.

nora bird

i am madly in love with this sweater. it is so cool and looks super cozy! and it would be perfect for the warm fall weather we are enjoying here right now!

i am a huge sucker for vintage riding boots. i have far too many pairs, but i always feel like i could use another! this pair is perfection. i love the length and the warm, honey color!

this coffee cozy made me laugh. my husband and i both need one!

i am obsessed with this clutch. it is so simple, chic, and cool.

this dress reminds me of a modern day little red riding hood! i love the loose style, the polka dots, and, of course, the hood! so cute!


cee is looking chic and casual in this post. i love when someone can take a leather skirt and make it work for day. so inspired!

we spent last weekend relaxing at a friend's cabin. it was wonderful. i snapped this photo on saturday morning right when we woke up. not a bad view to start your day!

xoxo, two birds


  1. I love it all! The snuggly reading picture is the best! The hoodie dress is soooo cute! Big sweaters. Ahhhh. Love it all!


  2. i love that little necklace. so cute!

  3. you're right about this weather being amazing -- if only it would stay this way for another year or so :) also, i should probably take a hint from you & do some cleaning :)

  4. So in love with that wiggle dress I almost wish I was a few sizes larger to wear it.


  5. If anyone could find a way to rock white fringe boots, it would be you Megan! I bet they'd look great! Nora - I love that hooded dress, I kind of feel like I need it! Hope the fashion show goes well, I'm hoping to stop by!

  6. I'm such a sucker for personalization. Gotta check out that necklace! And what beautiful keys they're next to!!

  7. Ooh those riding boots are fabulous! One can never have too many boots. :)

    The Tiny Heart
    Sept. Group Giveaway!

  8. I saw the pics of the clean rooms on instagram, mine was NEVER that clean as a kid! I have a giant need for that hoodie dress!

  9. I love Rebecca's outfits! I wish I worked somewhere where I can dress exactly like that!

  10. haha! do what you have to do. bribe and all to get it done. good luck with the fashion show. that sounds so exciting! what an honor.

  11. Someone's buying that fringe sweater off eBay and marking it way up to sell on Etsy. I've fallen for it before so I'm not trying to pick on you or your list, just wanting you to know if you are really thinking of getting it, it's only $14.99 on eBay!

  12. OOh how exciting- styling a fashion show! Good luck! I am sure it will be fabulous!


  13. How CUTE is that pic of the kiddos?! Love it. And love those vintage boots and that coffee sleeve :)

    The Other Side of Gray

  14. that ribbon initial necklace is so cute! I love anything with monograms or initials!

  15. Oh those initials on those cool silver flags are so cool. That photo you took Nora, is tremendous!!!

  16. Have fun at the fashion show! I'll be at a conference or I'd pop over - how fun!!
