Headbands & Bare Legs

I've been liking headbands since I cut my hair.  I've always thought they were so cute on other people, but when I'd try to style my hair in a similar way, it would always prove problematic.  Either the headband wouldn't stay in place, or it would make my ears stick out, or it would be too tight and give me a headache, or I couldn't get my hair volumous enough in the back, or, or, or....you get my point...headbands have not been noggin'-friendly for me.

BUT, since I've had my hair short I've been able to backcomb it for just enough volume to get me by.  And with bangs I'm able to place the headband far enough forward on my head that it stays put...for at least several hours. 

I'm having the best of luck with fabric types that have elastic in the back.  I found the greatest Etsy shop, Two Young Hearts that sells them for $2.99 with FREE SHIPPING!  Seriously, it's such a great deal I just HAD to share!  They come in all sorts of great prints and with the comfortable elastic band; they will fit almost anyone's head!  I can often be hesitant about buying online because it's nearly impossible to know exactly what I'll get, but I took a chance on Two Young Hearts because the price was SO right.  I'll definitely be ordering more!


We had such great weather most of last week.  I even ventured out without tights!  It wasn't too long before I acknowledged that it was still too cold to go without them.  Which is perfectly fine...I actually prefer tights over bare legs anyway.

Sportng headbands was one of the first things did when i cut my hair too. I felt so silly... "Oh all I ever needed to do was cut my hair!"

Hi Jill! Thanks so much for your super sweet comment on my blog! I'm glad you found me. Your blog is so lovely and I'm glad to be following it now!

Very sweet outfit. I love that you paired the dress with a white shirt - it makes it look more like a jumper. So cute! The headband gives the outfit such a springy and playful look. And the denim jacket is such a nice touch!

Hugs
