outfit of the day(bird): not to do list

shirt~ Target
pants~ LOFT
shoes~ eBay
necklace~ vintage, gift

things i shouldn't have done yesterday but did anyway:
~ gone to marshall's three times. (it was two different marshall's!) (i was looking for something specific!) (excuses, excuses.)
~ bought three new pairs of jeans (i have a problem, people.)
~ bought a new pair of shoes (it's a big problem.)
~ bought two perfectly slouchy black tees. (i didn't have a perfectly slouchy tee in black yet!) (now i have two!) (problems.)
~ made myself a healthy hummus and veggie spinach wrap for lunch. (this was actually something i did that was good and responsible, but i only did it to avoid eating leftover cold pizza.) (i still ate the pizza.) (and the wrap.)
~ written this post, because now you all know how crazy i am. (as if you didn't already know.)

i also wanted to share an outtake from when jim was taking these outfit photos. at one point i put my hand in one of my pockets and continued to pose for the photos. jim suddenly began making fun of me, saying, "oh yeah. you've got your hand in your pocket. you're relaxed. you're casual." and that made me laugh. that made me laugh really really hard.
but i totally held my pose. a true professional.

i hope you're all having a great day!
xoxo, nora bird
