It’s now 2013 and my love for the bird print still has not waned. I got this pretty mixed-print blouse last year because I loved the subtle colors. I can wear it casually with jeans, but I’m sure it would also be very pretty with a skirt or slacks. The birds had a bit of bright color in them and I decided to make more apparent by wearing these blue suede bow pumps. I almost chose a blue purse, but decided it was a little too matchy-matchy, so I kept my purse neutral.

I have a theme growing in my wardrobe of bird prints, feathered or winged items (also see posts here, here and here). That theme has extended past my wardrobe and into my home, starting with my son’s love for Angry Birds to the cover of the Spirit of Talk Talk book I purchased recently. One of my friends bought a couple of cute bird print dresses from Old Navy and then showed me some adorable vintage prints on Etsy. I then found more cute bird prints on Modcloth (here and here). I love it when I find something that seems to be a bit quirky, but is actually quite timeless.
This is the back of a new dress I bought a month ago. Isn’t the exposed zipper a cute detail (in addition to the cute little birds)?

Dominic’s favorite Angry Bird is the blue one, who he calls Happy Bird (he said, “Mama, he’s not angry, he’s a happy one!”). These are just two of his growing collection.
Did I mention that Dominic also loves penguins? I guess I’m not th only one with an affection for all things aviary!
