Ninja Wannabe

Jacket: Gap, Shirt: J. Crew, Pants: Unknown, Shoes: Target

You know these headbands? Well I think they're darling... on other people. So, when I saw one that I loved at F21 I snatched it right up thinking, "Oh I can't wait to wear this. It'll add so much spice to a simple outfit!" Well, turns out they're just not that cute on me. I felt like a ninja wannabe. And I felt like I was getting my brains squeezed out –talk about a headache waiting to happen. But, I thought maybe I was just unaccustomed to wearing them, so I persevered. That is until I walked on campus and everyone was looking at me like I was a foreign object. Maybe it was all in my head and I was just sensitive about it to begin with because I didn't feel like I was rockin' it. Normally I would have embraced my ninja-ness and karate chopped those stares in half, but I just didn't feel confident. Any tips on how to wear those cute silk, knotted headbands? 


  1. I think you could def. pull that off, you're so cute!

  2. I had the same issue! So instead I just bought a bunch of knotted headbands (and actual scarves) and started wearing them (solution for a bad hair day while growing out my short hair!). Here are two tutorials I've found for tying head scarves, but also show ways to rock 'em! Hope it helps :) &&


  3. I've always wanted to try and pull off those head bands, but every time I do I look like a complete hot mess. The trend is just not for me I guess!

  4. I am sure you could totally pull it off! Maybe everyone was just jealous you were wearing one and they weren't!


  5. I love your blog so much! I've been following for a while, and love reading every post from you! My roommates and I just started a fashion blog and I would loooove if you would check it out!! :)


  6. Hey cutie!!
    Come to a blog party in Provo next week!
    Read my blog to find out :)
    hope all is well.

  7. I haven't the faintest idea! I'm in the same boat as you - I feel like I'm working on the railroad! Give it time, maybe we'll come around, but I'm sure by then it'll be out of style! Drat!

  8. This is such a great look; I'm all about comfort while being stylish.

    Love it!

  9. I've never been able to pull off headbands and scarves very well either! My head was not designed for them!
