What’s in my Closet: Headbands

Hey Fashionistas,

For those who know me, I take great pride in my headband collection. I would say my headband obsession started in high school when I first saw Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl. Seeing her classic style mixed with chic patterns and infamous headbands was inspiring and she automatically became my fashion icon.

Another reason behind my obsession of headbands is the fact that they were a significant way to accessorize with my high school uniform. Yep! I went to an all-girls private Catholic high school. Uniforms were allll the rave there! From the same button-down or polo shirts to the classic plaid kilt (yes….those are called kilts, not skirts…contrary to what they look like) all the way down to the same knee highs, how is a girl to make her uniform her own style? Accessories, of course! Mine were headbands, though to be honest about 70% of my classmates also accessorized with headbands. #originality

Since then, I’ve grown my headband collection and now I have about more than 30 headbands. Some call it obsessive, I call it…a lifestyle. Headbands became a part of my wardrobe and they are my go-to pop of color when I wear a more simple outfits.

Like the girly girl I am, you didn’t expect me to just wear a headband to play up a simple outfit? Of course, I had to bring my headbands to the rest of wardrobe! Remember….Headbands are a lifestyle!

If I were to have a favorite headband, it would be this beautiful coach ponytail scarf! I can play it up and tie it into a bow giving me a super cute casual look, or wear it wrapped around my head for a more classic work look.

Headbands are my ultimate favorite accessories to wear! From bows, to classic colors, to fun patterns, headbands are a classic and wearing them is my way of a girly cute lifestyle!
