Alex Monroe bird earrings
So, it’s time to fess up, I’m a certified bird nerd. You may have noticed the birdfeeder in my outfit pictures lately; I have another one on the other side of the balcony + a hummingbird feeder. I started actively birding (that’s more than just watching them in the backyard, we would go hiking and on trips) in high school and college as something to do with my mom and it just caught on. Now, I do more backyard birdwatching than birding, but I’m sort of a crazy person about it. I can sit and just watch the feeders for hours. no joke. Right now, the parents are feeding the baby birds and it’s fun to watch up close…
Anyway, this is neither here nor there, just a little insight into my life I’m sure you ALWAYS wanted to know. That, and I switched out my earrings from my perennial Melissa Joy Manning circle studs to my Alex Monroe bird earrings that my mom bought me years ago after watching The Big Year, which as a birder I knew was about birding, but you may not have. It was really good – funny, and brought back memories of my adventures with my mom. She’s off having an adventure of her own on a river cruise in France, but I do miss those early morning trips out to the lake or to the mountains to listen and identify birds. Hopefully we’ll get to do that again sometime, although it’s difficult now that we live in different states. In the mean time, I’m trying to convince Leo to do it with me 😉
Love it! So cute.

Do they have that top at Calypso now? I’ve been searching for something I want…need….from them since they now have an extra 40% off of sale stuff. So cute and fresh with that do!
P.S. I saw your post about MJM jewelry and it reminded me of a story I was going to tell you: I had “liked” a Melissa Joy Manning post on FB & my daughter Jordan’s former college roommate saw that I liked it. She wrote to me and asked, “So, Val, is MJM a pretty big deal or something? Because my brother-in-law designs for her.” I was flipping out!!!
my top is pretty old, so it’s not on the calypso site anymore, but i found an identical one at madewell this afternoon: http://www.madewell.com/madewell_category/SHIRTSTOPS/otherboyshirts/PRDOVR~82018/82018.jsp – i didn’t try it on, so i’m not sure if it fits the same way, but it looked exactly the same!
Once again, great minds think alike: I have it in my “cart” at Madewell! Thanks for the suggestion!
whoa. discount?? 😉
this also looks like a good option: http://www.marymeyerclothing.com/products/nusantara-blouse
it’s cheaper, and a bit different. i’ve had it open in my browser since yesterday trying to decide whether to buy…
Oooo…love that one! Her stuff is so great and offbeat–Thanks, Grechen!
I’m kind of hoping for one. If I do, you’ll be the first person I’ll tell – and swear to secrecy! 😉
