Preppy Can I: Headband Happy

Happy Tuesday! Around the second day of the week, I start considering my closet. Monday’s wardrobe choice is largely shooting from the hip – I pull out something I love, throw it on, and go! Tuesday through Friday tend to be a bit more planned out and styled, and I like it that way. Tuesday is BY FAR my busiest day in the office, typically the most popular days for interviews (so looking polished is a good idea when you’re candidate-facing), and we also typically hold wedding meetings on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons. Even on my best outfit days (we’re talking jeans look great, sweater + shirt combo is really working, and I’m loving my shoe choice), I find that an accessory or two can really help pull the whole look together and make a statement simultaneously. Enter: the headband.

I’ve had a headband collection since I can remember – as a little girl, my dad used to toss my hair up into a whale spout (yes he does hair; ask him about it!) and slap a headband on it for some added pizzazz. These days, my headband collection is a little more preppy and a little less giant-flower-on-an-elastic-band. And while my dad has stopped doing my hair, I still use that little girl with a whale spout as inspiration now and then. Check out some of my favorite headband styling options from the endlessly preppy Blair Waldorf, as well as a few others, and shop my personal favorites below!
