love*birds: 3.21.14

things i am loving this week:
~ i found a visa gift card that still had over $100 on it!! hello free shopping!
~ cropped shirts. i never thought i could wear them, but i am impatiently waiting for spring so i can pair them with high-waisted skirts!
~ thrifting. ok, i always love thrifting, but the other day i went shopping and found some pretty fabulous finds (including some pretty amazing red cowboy booties).
~ just when i was having a super hard day, both my kids decided to be extra nice to me. henry even offered me an unsolicited hug.

and here are some other things we are loving this week.

megan bird
black cat tee
this is exactly the kind of shirt i was talking about in my likes above. exactly the kind of outfit, actually. add in the cute cat print, and this shirt is for sure a winner.

coco white leather boots
are these not the cutest booties you have ever seen? i love the texture and the ankle strap. and who knew i needed a pair of white booties?

crossbody canvas bag
i'm not going to lie. when i saw this bag on etsy, my stomach did like 3 mini flips. i got excited when i saw it. because...cute! every detail about this bag is perfection, from the pattern, to the mixed fabrics and textures. i am in love! (also, it's vegan leather, my favorite kind of leather!)

vintage mustard polka dot dress
do you not just want to buy this dress and immediately put it on and go dancing? or at the very least, put it on and spin wildly in your back yard? no? just me? oh well, i'll do it anyways! this dress is perfection!

porcelain and rope planter
i am a real sucker for planters, which is funny because i don't have the greenest of thumbs. but that doesn't stop me from trying. and a cute planter like this might motivate me to study up about house plants a little more!

leah of EatPrayWearLove is rocking this outfit. you ever see an outfit and just wish you could wear it? that's how i feel about this. that skirt looks amazing on her and i'm so jealous of bare feet in sandals!!

they can pretend that they aren't best of friends, but when the kids camp out on the floor together and snuggle up this close...well, sleep doesn't lie. they clearly love each other. and i love them...too adorable!

nora bird

this is the perfect springtime dress! i adore the vibrant color and the gorgeous picnic and poppy print.

this delicate, ornate laser cut mobile is gorgeous! i love the pretty woodland creatures! i don't even want this for my kids' rooms, i want it hanging in my bedroom!

this is such a cool, unique top. i love the loose, oversized style and the way it drapes. it looks so comfy and so chic!

this beautiful, hand-painted scarf just screams spring! this is simply stunning. almost too pretty to wear! but i really want to wear it!

this blouse is such a beauty. whimsical and elegant at the same time. i adore the floral collar and the open back.


yesterday was the first day of spring and, while it may not feel very spring-y yet, i am ready to ditch the wintry comfort foods in favor of some lighter, springtime flavors. molly's asparagus and gruyere tart, in this post, sounds perfectly springlike and delicious! i will be making this asap!

the other day, before jim left for work, i caught he and ben in the sweetest father/son embrace ever. i couldn't resist taking a photo. how sweet are my boys???

happy friday! what are you loving today???
