Can't leave home without one

You know you're getting close to your mommy when she finally buys you accessories that follow your taste. Fashion is very intimate, and I think it says something when you and your mom can buy things for each other and truly enjoy it.
Especially recently, she has taken a fancy to buying me headbands whenever she gets the chance to shop. Since August, I have rarely stepped out of my house without a headband for every occasion. Bows, plaid, jewels, flowers, buckles: I have them all, but for some reason I always choose the ones with bows.. My mommy likes to call it my "Audrey Hepburn mentality", because I'm a prim and proper dresser. Throwing outfits together is so not my thing. Or at least, wearing a headband decreases the likelihood of looking like I threw my outfit together 30 minutes before class.
This Cara Couture headband is so classic; updates on the satin bow are charming and adaptable for a variety of situations. Cocktail party? Afternoon tea? Quick dash to class? Black satin with pearls totally has you covered.

Need a little more color? These skinny crystal-accented headbands from Tasha add a little sparkle and shine to your hair.

Perfect for strolling through that winter wonderland! The delicate crystal snowflake would look so perfect with a snug winter coat.Another bow headband, this time with delicate rhinestone trim and a demure little bow. My favorite one so far!
A clever twist on the bow is this vintage-inspired gold leaf headband, which definitely exudes a 1920s look.

Too expensive?
But this Forever 21 satin bow headband for only $2.80 and decorate it with your own rhinestones!

Please, let's tidy our outfits up a little more with a headband...there's so many varieties nowadays so stock up on these classics!
