love*birds: 10.30.13

things i am loving this week:
~ fresh apples. i have had such a sweet tooth at night lately and instead of stuffing my face with halloween candy and ice cream, i have been trying to make healthier choices. so far, so good!
~let's be honest. i am just saving my calorie intake for thursday when i plan on eating most of my kids' halloween candy! one of the many perks of being a mom!
~ halloween is tomorrow! it's one of my favorite holidays. candy and costumes! how can you not love it?

and here are a few other things we are loving this week...

i love a long sleeve dress with tights and boots. this one looks so cozy and roomy, perfect for the upcoming holidays! plus, the colors are gorgeous and the pattern is so fun!

oh my gosh! it's a long, cozy, fringey, colorful scarf...with pockets! pockets! and it looks so soft and cozy!

i never knew i needed a vintage, fringe, boho vest until i saw this one! it's perfect! how cute would this be thrown on over just about anything?

these gloves are so elegant and pretty and look so warm and comfy! i love the fairisle rose pattern.

i love vintage sweaters. ones with shawl collars are especially awesome. and the bright, pretty color of this one makes me love it all the more!


jessica, of jeans and a teacup, styled this super gorgeous, feathered skirt four different ways in this post. all of the looks are so great, i can't pick a favorite!

the kids and i snuggled up in our jammies on saturday night and watched aladdin. i haven't seen that movie in so long and it was fun re-watching with the kiddos! (well, really just with mimi. ben went to bed approximately two minutes after i took this photo.)

megan bird
antler ring
i know a lot of people are really into the deer/antler trend...and i'm not ashamed to admit i am one of them. i love the idea of bringing nature into accessories, and this ring is even better because no deer were harmed in its making!

winter grey photograph
this photo reminds me of a minnesota night ~ in the winter, of course. i love how haunting and beautiful the scenery is.

50s vintage dress
this dress is so gorgeous. it would make a fabulous holiday party dress. (are we talking about holiday party dresses yet?) i love the color and the detailing on the shoulders!

cat and tail tights
these are just too cute. i love how fun they are. they would make any outfit stand out!
crocheted beanie
this beanie is like my favorie grandma blanket and my favorite hat all wrapped into one. i love the colors...we all need a little cozy color on a cold winter day!

The Banged Blonde
samantha of the banged blonde is rocking this perfect apple picking, pumpkin carving, fall outfit. i love the sweater paired with the cute dress, and the orange tights perfect the whole thing! she looks both cozy and fabulous all at the same time!

i had the best time with one of my oldest friends and my hubbie last weekend. we went to a bar we used to frequent many, many years ago, and saw a ton of old friends. good times!
