Pretty Little Things

Hey there!

Hope you're all having a lovely afternoon.

And now moving on. A few weekends ago I stopped into J.Crew. I know some of you probably find it to be rather uninteresting or too preppy, but I think it's great for basics and work-appropriate attire, plus they also just have some pretty cute things. It's all about how you put things together.

So while I was in the store I ventured over to their accessories, and quite liked some of their new hair pieces, particularly the below headband.

Seeing this headband in the store reminded me immediately of something that GG's Blair Waldorf would wear. Okay, so she can probably get away with a more exaggerated version, but I love how simple and wearable this J.Crew piece seems. I had to try it on, and actually thought it looked quite nice, which is saying a lot for me. I've never felt headbands, hats or any other head pieces looked right on me. I don't know...maybe my head is shaped strangely? I couldn't make a decision about it right away, so instead I bought the below:

For now, I felt this was the more practical option. My hair is very long, and I do wear it down often, but I always wear a hairband around my wrist just in case I feel like pulling it up. The above hairband is great for me. The pretty, shininess of the flower gives a basic hairband a little extra decoration but is still classy and it's nice to have something prettified to wear on my wrist now.

Anyway, I've been pondering this headband and then I came across this piece from The Moment. So, that made me love it even more, and I think it's simplicity lends itself to being mistaken for a higher end label.

Anyway, I thought this was a great find. I didn't see this style on their website, but they did have the above in the store, plus I believe two other color options.

What do you think? Would this make me look a bit too young?
