Bird Shirt and A Closet Sleeper

Bucket is growing up.
Last week he started rolling over.
We also started "sleep training,"
which basically means we let him cry it out.
It's sad to hear him cry, but he sleeps so much better.
Some nights we even put his bassinet in my closet.
Luckily it's a big closet.

BIRD SHIRT - H&M, $13
OLIVE SKINNIES - Old Navy, $16
ZEBRA CUFF - Made by my mom
WEDGES - Marc Fisher (thrifted), $4



I've been wanting a bird shirt for a while now.  I don't really even like birds, but for some reason I find them charming on a top.  I was going to pair it with a pair of bright skinnies, but decided instead to wear it with my olive ones instead.  I also wore these colorful Marc Fisher wedges I thrifted at Goodwill.  They were new and 50% off!

Bucket takes a nap

I've been trying to reorganize my closet now that I've purged myself of the maternity clothes and brought out my spring favorites!  In fact I wouldn't mind sleeping in my closet.  That way I could fall asleep with my clothes and dream of cute outfits.

The birdy top is really cute, I love this print too it has this vintage vibe which I like. Looks great with your cargo pants. Very nice weekend look. The hsoes are such a wonderful thrifted find. I like the Zebra cuff too, your mom is so clever!

Aw I hated the cry it out method, but you are right--it is important for development and self-soothing. But it's so hard for a mama to hear!!! I LOVE your bird top Claire! And the shoes are super cute too!

Hello Claaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaire!!!How are you? You look beautiful! I also love bird tops/dresses/skirts/necklaces/earrings- you name it! Yours is brilliant! Those shoes are a marvellous find! They're so funky! If you happen to have large feet and ever want to get rid of them, I'd be happy to oblige! ;-)

I imagine the 'sleep training' must be harrowing, but necessary!

Maiken said...

gotta share the love for bird tops! I'm actually even considering wearing one tomorrow. and your newly thrifted wedges are so cute! I think you are an awesome thrifter ;)

Awesome thrift find! :)

If we wear the same size shoe, I will die a happy person. You can also expect me to show up randomly at your house so we can trade closets. That's what friends do.

Claire, love your bird top! Where did you get it? I need one! And I had to laugh about putting bucket in the closet--do you think he will need therapy later on? haha, maybe even more if you're sleeping in there dreaming of cute outfits. Let's get together soon! Seriously!

It's all about animal prints right now and I love that top that you found. Hope the sleep training goes well with little Bucket, but judging from that picture it looks like he'll figure it out!!!

Fashion By Alicia said...

So cute! Love the wedges you found!

Shon said...

So cute!! He is a cute little napper. We use to do that too, as long as they are safe we would let them stay. Happy Sleeping!!;)

Love the outfit and the shoes, Whimsy!!

Shea said...

Another awesome pair of shoes!? Your shoe collection blows my mind! And that top is adorable, but not quite as adorable as little napping Bucket :)

Tinfoil Tiaras said...

That top is great and I imagine it would be so versatile! Love those flats and what a steal! Poor Buckets- I never understood why people say "I slept like a baby" when they had a good sleep because it seems like babies cry, wake up and have interruped slumbers-hmm...

Mrs. J said...

I have yet to join the birds on blouse train. I think now would be a good time. I'm super jealous of those shoes!!

FashionCherry said...

Adorable printed top! Oh to be able to fall asleep anywhere. Why do we lose that talent as we age!
