Daily Threads: About A Headband

{J Crew Floral Tank (similar), Merona Black CardiganTarget Black Skinny Pants (similar), Isaac Mizrahi T-Strap Pumps (similar)}

Husband and I went out and about today. We drove around and looked at neighborhoods, had a lunch date in Costco, and went to the grocery store to pick out steaks to grill tonight. Maybe I look really cool or maybe I look really weird - whichever the case, I received more stares today than what I'm completely comfortable with. Husband said I looked cool - so I'm going with that one. 

I was going to wear this headband like a regular headband (ex.). As I began to put it on, I kind of stopped in mid-action, husband saw how it looked, and really approved. So I left it like this. I love seeing headbands worn this way, but I've never done it - I actually thought husband would call me weird, but turns out, he likes it! He really likes it! 

Also, I look washed out in the pictures - I know that. Apparently at a particular time of day, at a particular place, with a flash... you can really look washed out. See above. 

Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

I've ALWAYS wanted to rock a headband like that! Kudos for having the guts to just go for it.

I have no idea why people would be staring at you weirdly? You look wonderful. I really like your top, and the headband like that is super cute. I am always suprised when my boyfriend approves of something I thought he'd hate. Its nice though!

Love the shoes!!! And I'm sure people were staring because you were the only lady in the grocery store not wearing sweats :))

Elissa said...

Maybe people were staring because they were jealous of how awesome you looked! I love your hair worn that way. And hose shoes are so darn cute.

Looks great on you!

Kristen said...

Love this look - from the headband to the slim fitting black pants & ruffly pink top, you look great! Definitely you'd be getting a "woah that girl looks cool" stare from me (in a totally non creepy way, I promise).

Natasha said...

I love how you wore the headband. Does it stay in place like that?
I know for sure that my hubby would make some type of negative comment if I wore a headband like that...but I always ignore him anyways.
I'm very impressed that your hubby is so open minded about fashion!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the thank! The color is absolutely beautiful.

I like how your husband actually cares [my bf wouldn't take a second glance].. so cute! I really approve also. It looks really good on you! Definitely different, but maybe people just aren't used to it.

Bella said...

Hi,
I just recently found your blog and really like your style. I wanted to confess that I like your shoes so much that I tracked them on ebay. Thanks for the idea!

Tara said...

The headband looks good! I love wearing mine that way too.

srochelle said...

I wouldn't worry one bit about extra stares, they were probably just in awe of how adorable you look! Your headband looks great that way, a little vintage but not over the top :)
