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!
xoxo,
two birds

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

  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. ♥
