I spend more on clothes and would rather buy more shoes than accessories (even though I spend a ton of time dreaming of Tiffanys), but one accessory I have a pretty big collection of is headbands. I don't remember when I started wearing them and whether it was before or after watching Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl. I do know that this accessory- like sunglasses- is one that I need to try on whenever I'm at the store.
Above are my biggest flower and bow headbands. I wore the black and white flower headband to one of my very first fashion events. I get them from pretty much everywhere- drugstores, the mall, boutiques, and fairs. I just got the navy and black bow headbands (in the middle) at the State Fair this weekend for so cheap. I think the rest are a mix of drugstore and boutique finds. And of course they're pink, navy, and black, like most of my closet haha.
Another headband I have, not included above, is a pink metal crown that ties in the back with ribbon from the renaissance fair. It's so great since you can wear it both as a crown and headband and the ribbon is so cute if you tie it over your hair- maybe braiding it in would be a fun idea. It's not floral but crowns are on-trend right now and it would be really easy to just add your own flowers when you wanted.
When I want something more simple than giant flowers and bows I have a few thinner headbands like the two below.
Are you a headband junkie? Which stores do you think have the cutest?
Disclaimer: When my sister saw this post she pointed out I have a lot of accessories besides my headbands, guess that's for another post.. ;)
