Accessorizing: Headband!

2011-02-24 010
I originally planned to make this headband for my hairdresser (I thought it would be fun to have options for her to choose from), but then I ran out of time. I think bands like this are super cute, I’ve just never felt like I could pull it off (see my fear of trends here). But then my hair dresser trimmed me up a little shorter and with some spunk…

I’m loving the cut. Just not looking forward to washing it and then having to style it myself. So I thought I’d go ahead and finish the headband. It’s black and white checker with a strip of elastic in the back (and still loose on my head. I have a small head).
I had some fun playing with different ways to wear it.
And maybe tomorrow I’ll feel brave and actually wear it to our Family Movie Night at church!

(And can I just say how awkward it is to edit and scroll through one picture after the next of myself???)
