inspiration monday: proud mama

the inspiration

megan bird

boots, sweater ~ b. (a resale shop)
leggings ~ Heartbreaker
tank ~ Target
hat ~ thrifted
sunglasses ~ swap

nora bird

sweatshirt ~ Urban Outfitters
leggings ~ thrifted
hat, scarf ~ knit by mom
boots ~ Shoe Dazzle

nora and i attended an amazing charity event for dress for success last week. that same night, the kids were planning on visiting grandma. henry asked me why i wasn't going with them, and i told him, "auntie nora and i are going to a charity event." without missing a beat, he said, "oh...will you go up to my room, get some money out of my bank and give it to them?" i was speechless at how thoughtful my son is.

not to be outdone, eva said to me, "mama, can you do the same for me, too? just don't take too much."

i guess there's also something to be said about being frugal.

happy monday!
two birds


  1. What a sweet story! I adore both your inspired looks! Aren't boots, hats and sweaters comfy? They are all faves of mine! Thanks for hosting this fab link up. xo T.

  2. Your kids are adorable!
    I love how you both chose to lighten up the look with gray instead of going all black.

  3. That is so sweet, I would be a proud mama too! You ladies both look great!

  4. aww that's too sweet and precious! and y'all look cozy!

  5. Love this outfit! You guys look soo adorable and warm. Love the sweater soo much!

  6. Aww, what good kids you have (even if Eva said don't take too much, lol) - I think it's the great example they have in their mama!

    You both look super cozy!!

  7. Aww, that's the sweetest. I love the generosity of children - we could all learn a thing or two from them.

    Hot boots girls - love 'em!

  8. Love the outfits! Perfect for this time of the year!

  9. So, so cute. The baby birds are the sweetest.

  10. Aww, cuteness all around! Cute outfits, cute boots, cute hats, and cute kids!

  12. Your kids are too sweet! That's just wonderful.

  13. That is so adorable! You are raising some amazing kiddos!

  14. your kids are so precious -- you must be really proud :) annnnd, on a different note, i want those knee-high boots :)

  15. These ensembles today are wonderful but too hot for me yet. I only dress like that in January, if that. I have figured out (since the change) that I can't stand to be too hot. I guess that is why my post has me in sock-less flats versus your guys in knee high boots. And ...Megan, your children are so conscientious of others BECAUSE you are (by the example you set) .......awe.some. ♥

  16. Oh my goodness, you clearly raised 2 wonderful kids! That is so sweet. You both are looking beautiful in these outfit, love the hats!
