  • Spend Your Rainy Day Weekends at Southdale Center

    Posted Apr 23 // Megan and Nora

Minnesota weather is finally starting to look up, but even though the sun peeks its head out frequently, we are still experiencing a few rainy days here and there. After all, it's still April! If you need to get out of the house, but don't want to mess up your hair, Southdale has so much you can do....by yourself, on a date, or with the whole family!

Here's a few of my favorite Saturday ideas.

1. Shopping, of course. Make it a girls' day out! Head to H&M, Madewell, Francescas, and Dry Goods. Shop til you drop, but save enough energy for some nachos and margaritas at Rojo Mexican Grill!

2. Treat yourself. Whether your a mom who needs a break or a student who is stressing over finals, Southdale's got you covered. Head to See's Candies and pick yourself up a little chocolate treat (after all chocolate is good for your heart!), and then relax at Zen Experience Massage and Wellness for a relaxing massage. Of course afterwards you will want a little Starbucks pick-me-up (so you can circle back to #1 and shop some more)!

3. Make yourself over. Head to Aveda for a perfume consultation and make yourself a brand new scent. Then head to Sephora for all of your face and body essentials. You could even head to Macy's for a few make-up tips from their professional artists! Oh, and then circle back to #1 and shop a little for a few outfits. You deserve it!

4. Did you know Southdale Center has a play area for kids? It's padded and walled and full of fun times for your kids. Grab a burrito from Qdoba or a soft pretzel to share from Pretzelmaker. Sit back and watch the kids have a blast.

5. After playtime, head to AMC Southdale 16 and catch a fun movie. Or get a sitter and catch a matinee with your date, followed by drinks and dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. Maybe even a little shopping! (You can never go wrong with a little shopping!)

The possibilities are endless at Southdale, whether you're looking to shop, eat, or spend time with your family. Head on out on the next rainy (or even sunny) day and treat yourself. You deserve it!

  • Jumpsuit Love

    Posted Feb 19 // Megan and Nora

If you has asked me 10 years ago if I would ever wear a romper (again), I for sure would have said no. I know they say that if you have worn a trend once, you're not supposed to wear it again, but you know what...I never listened to that rule. If I had, I would never wear skinny jeans, leggings, legwarmers, or hoop earrings again. So when you say jump(suit), I say how high!

Here are a few of my favorites.

I am loving this Emerald Sundae Belted Jumpsuit from Macy's. It is both chic and stylish, and it also looks cozy and comfy. Pair it with some flats for a day at the beach, or some heels and a statement necklace for a night on the town.

This Split-Sleeve Chiffon Romper from Arden B. is making me swoon a little bit. The color is so beautiful and universally flattering, and it gives you the feel of wearing a dress, with the comfort of shorts. That's a win/win in my book!

 

Can we talk about this Birdslife Romper from Madewell for  a second? I am in love...I can just see myself sitting under a tree on the beach, reading a book in this romper. Doesn't that sound perfect?  OK, maybe add a little drink with an umbrella in it.

Clearly I am thinking Spring already, but in all honesty, these rompers can be work all year round. Throw on some tights, a cute leather bomber jacket, and some awesome booties, and you've got a winter get up. Or simply heeled sandals and a wide-rimmed hat, and you're set for summer.

Which do you prefer? Either way, head to Southdale Center and find yourself the perfect romper!

  • Rainy Day Fashion: Stylish Raincoats and Boots!

    Posted Apr 3 // Megan and Nora

It's April which, in Minnesota, means lots of rain. I love the Spring rainfalls! They assist in melting all the yucky snow that's still lingering and help the tulips and lilacs and green grass bloom and grow. But, most importantly, when it rains I get to wear a cute raincoat and rain boots! There are so many stylish, yet still very functional, rain coats and boots out there. I scoured the racks and shelves at Southdale Center and paired some of my favorite raincoats with some cute, modern rain boots to create five polished and fashionable looks. You can always look chic, even on the rainiest of days!

Rainstorm Jacket // Madewell // $138

Hunter Original Tall Boot // Victoria's Secret // $140

Collection Linen Slicker // J. Crew // $350

Rocky Top Rain Boot // Francesca's // $19.99 (on sale!!!)

RipPac Rain Jacket // Eddie Bauer // $80

Chooka Mid Rain Boot // Eddie Bauer // $60

Betsy Johnson Double Breasted Trench // Macy's // $180

Dr. Martens 1460 Drench Rubber Boot // Journeys // $109.99

DKNY Colorblock Raincoat // Herberger's // $140 (on sale!!!)

Pelican Too Rain Boot // Sperry Top-Sider // $78

These stylish pairings have me wishing for rainy days! Be sure to head to Southdale Center and stock up on your stormy day gear! See you there!

  • Spring Trend: The Crop Top

    Posted Feb 21 // Megan and Nora

Crop tops were all over the Spring runways and are sure to be a huge trend in the coming months. And while a belly-baring top may seem like a tough trend to wear in real life, I don't think it has to be. Try pairing a cute cropped tank with high-waisted jeans or a skirt. Or layer a cropped tee over a longer, more fitted tank top. Or throw on a cute crop top under a longer boyfriend cardigan or a denim jacket! There are so many ways to wear this trend and there is really no reason to shy away! Especially when Francesca's has so many cute crop tops from which to choose! Check out some of my favorites:

Quinn Floral Pom Crop Top // $34

I adore the pom pom trim on this top! It's such a fun, unexpected detail. This tank would look so cute with a pair of wide-legged, high-waisted jeans. Add a pair of strappy wedges and a simple necklace and you're ready to go!

Palms Crochet Crop Top // $28

The fringe detail and crochet pattern on this top gives it such a fun, boho vibe. I can easily see this one paired with jean shorts and gladiator sandals for a casual day look. Once the sun goes down, throw on a flirty, party skirt, some sky high heels, and a bold red lip, and you're ready for a night on the town!

Laguna Floral Crop Top // $24

The daisies on this top are so cheerful and fun! I would pair this tank with a pair of light wash skinny jeans and clogs for an easy, casual daytime look! It would also be super cute with a solid color bodycon skirt and booties!

Key West Fringed Crop Top // $28

I am really loving fringe for spring!  This top would look super adorable worn with skinny jeans, a fitted denim jacket, and some wedge sneakers! Throw on a statement necklace if you're feeling fancy!

What do you think of the crop top trend? Would you wear any of these looks? Luckily for me, winter is still going strong here, so that gives me time to work on my abs before trying this trend! Until then, I will be dreaming of spring and shopping all of these looks, and more, at Southdale Center!

  • Madewell Promotion: April 11 – April 13

    Posted Apr 10 // Megan and Nora

I have a horrible confession, I don't own a pair of Madewell jeans. Everyone, and I mean everyone keeps telling me to get a pair; that they fit like a dream and are high-quality denim. And I agree. So I am taking their advice, and I'm going to head to Madewell this weekend to buy a pair.

And you know what? This is the perfect weekend to do it because they are offering a huge promotion.

Here are the details:

Date:  Friday through Sunday (4/11 - 4/13)
Where: Valid only at Madewell stores at participating Simon Malls

  • April Showers Bring May Florals

    Posted Mar 31 // Megan and Nora

I have always loved floral print. It used to be that you could only find it on a dress, or maybe a blouse. But these days, it's everywhere, from shoes to hats. With the temperatures rising, I think we are all probably feeling the urge to throw on our springiest clothes and run around the parks!

Don't know what to wear? Don't worry, Southdale's got you covered.

While you might not be thinking about swimsuits quite yet, how can you not when Madewell makes them this cute? The bright floral print is all the encouragement I need to brave the beaches this summer!

If you're not quite bikini ready yet, this beautiful Jun & Ivy floral blouse from Francescas will give you the floral oomph you need! I love the tunic shape, and the light, airy feel. Pair this with some white skinny jeans and some fun sandals, and you're still set for the beach!

How gorgeous is this ink drawn silk floral scarf from The Loft? The colors are so delicate, and it would really tie together any spring outfit, be it jeans, business attire, or a flowy maxi skirt!

Spring wouldn't be complete without a flouncy floral dress. This one from Dry Goods is perfect with its lace neckline and perfect periwinkle hue!

Maybe you don't love too much floral. If that's the case, than this Kate Spade floral necklace from Macy's if just for you! Pair it with a plain white tee and some boyfriend jeans, and you're set for the day!

What's your favorite way to wear florals?

Happy Spring!

  • How to Get Perfect Spring Skin

    Posted Mar 26 // Megan and Nora

It's got to get warmer soon, right? Right? I know it will, and with these few weeks before it does, I plan on getting my skin Spring ready, from head to toe. And I can get everything I need from Sephora. Here's what I need.


Starting with my face, I need a gentle exfoliator that won't irritate my sensitive skin. I love the Origins brand. This face wash has a beautiful fresh scent, and because it's an Origins product, it is free of parabens, sulfates, and GMOs. It's gentle enough to not harm or irritate your skin, but effective enough to slough off old skin, leaving your face fresh and luminous!

After washing, I love a cool mist. Add in the gorgeous smell of lavender, and this Josie Maran Lavender Mist is a winner. Your skin will be refreshed and you'll smell like spring!

This origins A Perfect World moisturizer is one of my all-time favorites. It glides on your face so smoothly, leaving it baby soft. And it has the freshest white tea scent that is not too overpowering. And it has SPF 25...all face moisturizers should have SPF!

Soap & Glory's Scrub 'Em and Leave "em is fabulous for exfoliating your body. The sea salt mixed with oils, including one of my favorites, jojoba, leaves your whole body radiant and smooth.


L'Occitane makes some of the best lotions. They are thick and comforting without being to greasy, and leave your hand soft, even after a few washes. This hand cream, made with shea butter, is so soft and moisturizing, that your hands will soon forget it was ever winter.

Clarisonic makes this amazing Pedi-Boost. And this is the one we probably all need the most after a long winter. Our poor feet have been ignored for months. Well no worries, this peel will slough off the dead and dry skin in no time!

Hopefully I only have a few weeks until Spring weather actually arrives in Minnesota, and you can bet I will be using that time to get my toes (and the rest of my body) Spring ready!

  • Spring Sandals Under $50

    Posted Mar 22 // Megan and Nora

Spring is upon us! I can feel it in the air! The snow is melting, the birds are chirping, and that can only mean one thing: it's sandal season! I love sandals, but since the season to wear them here in Minnesota is quite short, I don't like spending an arm and a leg buying them. That's why it is so great that the stores at Southdale Center have such an amazing sandal selection at such great prices! I can stock up on my favorite footwear without breaking the bank! Here are some of my favorite sandals for under $50.

Mia Gumdrop Sandal // Journeys // $49.99

These are the perfect everyday sandal! Simple, neutral, and easy to throw on with just about anything! How cute would these look with denim shorts and a simple tee?

Tribal Strappy Wedge // Wet Seal // $29.90

These are bold, trendy, and fun! I love the pop of neon, too! Throw these on with a little black dress and a denim jacket and you're ready to go!

Madden Girl Hiighfiv Demi Wedge // Francesca's // $49.99

These would be my go-to spring wedge! They look so comfy and I love that they have a little height. With a pair of cropped skinnies and a colorful, flowy tank? Perfection!

Mazzy Flip Flop // Banana Republic // $39.50

Everybody needs a basic flip flop. Why not go for one in a bright, springlike color? I love these fun, hot pink ones.

Flat Black Sandals // H&M // $34.95

This is such a great pair of sandals. Basic black, so they will go with anything. And I love that the metal detail gives them a bit of edge. These would look so great with a maxi dress!

Ankle Strap Wedge Clog // Express // $41.93

I love the boho vibe of these clogs. I am picturing them with some high-waisted, flared denim and a crochet cropped tank! So chic and cool!

Do you love sandals as much as I do? Which is your favorite pair? Since they're all under $50, that means I can buy them all, right?

  • Layering for Summer: Vests

    Posted Mar 20 // Megan and Nora

I don't know about you, but I have a ton of fun summer sundresses. Some days I wear them plain with a cute pair of sandals...perfect for running errands or weekend wear. But other days I like to dress them up a bit. I think layering is such a great way to dress up a sundress (or jeans or shorts or skirts). And what a better way to layer than with a fun summer vest.

Vest aren't just for winter anymore! Here are a few of my favorites.

This Say What? Tribal vest from Macy's would be perfect over a sleek black maxi dress. Or how fun would it be over a flouncy little red dress? Even paired with a tank and some boyfriend jeans, it would make the perfect statement.

I think a utility vest is a must have for any season. This Layton Anorak vest from Francesca's is perfect for layering pretty much any outfit. The ivory color is definitely more fitting towards Spring and Summer than it's olive counterpart that we have been seeing all over. Some cute denim cut-offs and a graphic tee would be perfect under this vest. Or try it with a little black dress and some Converse sneakers. It's the perfect piece to "weekendize" any outfit!

Another must-have for warmer weather is a denim vest. I love the cut and color of this jean vest from Madewell. Try it with a maxi skirt and soft v-neck tee, or even double up on the denim with some cropped skinnies and a loose floral tank. The possibilities are endless!

Do you own a summer vest? Would you wear one? If not, head to Southdale Center and buy one (or three) for all of your summer layering needs!

If not, head to Southdale Center and buy one (or three) for all of your summer layering needs!</p> <p>xoxo,</p> <p>two birds</p> http://www3.simon.com/mall/maplewood-mall/stream/layering-for-summer-vests-1125291 Southdale Center
