outfit of the day(bird): layers upon layers




scarf~ knit by my mom
jacket~ vintage, c/o avalon exchange
sweater~ F21
tee, jeans~ Old Navy
boots~ Bamboo

i really don't like complaining, especially about the weather, but i am about to. i'll admit it. my brain is no longer here. i am checked out and ready for vacation. my head is in california, where i will be in four days time! i am over this freezing cold, polar vortex-y winter that we've been having. i'm sick of being stuck inside or having to apply 500 layers of clothing to myself and my kids just to run the twenty feet to my car. i am sick of snow and the harsh winds. i am excited for warmer air and ocean and sun and green and relaxation. vacation! yay! i will, however, miss this scarf while i'm there. isn't this the best scarf ever? my mom is such a talent. actually, i think i will just bring it along. it get's chilly in california at night, right? i'll probably need a scarf.

xoxo, nora bird

p.s. i am taking next week off from the blog while i am away. i will miss all of you! but megan will be here, keeping it all up on her own! let's all try and convince her to take at least one day off, okay? knowing megan, she won't. but let's just try.

  2. That scarf is AMAZING! And, like you, I am super sick of winter as well. It's gotten me so down in the dumps. Have fun in California!

  3. That was my first thought when I saw the photo. I'm so glad I live in Florida. Although it's cold here today (to us!!!)

    But you look chic in your layers!!!

  6. Do you have space in your suitcase?

    That scarf is totally awesome. The whole outfit makes you look like a model. You hair looks super chic!

  7. I'll be in California next week too! My friend is getting married in San Francisco a week from Saturday, and I caaaaan't wait. It's literally the only thing that's been getting me through this winter is knowing that I'll have a teeny bit of a warm respite before I bundle up for the rest of it. Small world! Have a great vacay (and if by any chance you're going to SF, keep your eyes peeled for the Sconnie frolicking in the sunshine in sundresses and sandals, haha)!

  11. PLease amend this title to gorgeous layers upon layers! Because it is just that. I love the white jeans here with the rich autumnal colors. I know how your feel about this cold, persistent, weather. Take that scarf with you and enjoy! You also might need it on the plane, so snuggly!

  14. The hair and the scarf! Perfection. Those boots! Wow. I would only be able to stand around looking gorgeous-such as you are doing- but not walk in those.

  15. Cute! And yes, all the layers, please. It's cold! Have fun on your trip!

  16. I just can't believe the weather you are all getting this winter. We are probably moving back north this fall and I am dreading the cold. That scarf is absolutely wonderful. I know how to knit and need to start making scarfs and blankets again because we're probably going to need them next year, right?

  17. That scarf is just amazing! I love how it looks against your coat and with those adorable cognac booties!

  20. Completely agree Nora! -12 on my way home last night and my dressing goal was to wear enough layers to stay warm yet be able to get my coat on too! I may have to dry clean coats early this year as the wear on the cold ones have been so nonstop! I am praying the rain lets up and you have beautiful sunshine! I always feel like Dorothy when I go somewhere warm in the winter and see the beautiful green! Yes, Megan, take a day off!

  21. MAHN! You are one lucky ducky, Nora = California now instead Minnesota now. Have the time of your life. I will miss ya and such but you deserve a wonderful vaca and the warm summery sun of California. ps. I won't be a bit surprised at you taking that scarf along. I love this entire post and photos and EVERYTHING, even the snow. ♥

  25. Nora, you look super adorable and cozy. Props to you for wearing high-heeled boots in such a snowy weather. Love them. The white jeans look so crisp against the deeper, darker colors. The coat matches that scarf to perfection, as does your beautiful red hair. THAT IS THE BEST SCARF, I Agree.

    I am now updating myself with you guys' blog and I hope you had a great time in Cali. =)
