WIWW – Headband Edition

What I Wore Wednesday – well, I’ve been slacking, so when Little Miss Momma declared it headband week, I thought that’d be the perfect thing to snazz up my tshirt-and-shorts look. As always, I need to hear from you on some things. So, let’s dive right in….

Here’s a pretty normal too-lazy-to-flatten-my-hair-so-I-wore-pigtails type of day – – the yellow and gray are matchy matchy to the headband, but I think that’s okay – right?

I wore it with this headband (tutorial HERE):

Next up, I hunted through the headband bin and wore this one - are the headbands with ribbon tails still in??  I don’t really see them much, so I’m guessing not.  And again with those giant shorts – they’re so comfy (seriously, I can pull them off without unbuttoning) , but I think they’re just the kind of thing I’m trying to get away from.

 So I guess I’m regressing in my fashion-forwardness.  Like majorly regressing – because I wore this exact same thing back in 2007 – seriously – I dug up a picture for you, August 2007:

Next up, I made a knotted headband out of tshirts (tutorial was earlier this week) – – I think it’s a good casual headband:

So then I tried to make a white one – – but the tshirt didn’t pull into tshirt yarn – weird.  So it was more like strips of fabric.  So the knot in the middle wasn’t that great.  So I tied a few more regular knots on the end – I think it turned out all right:

 The one day I gave an effort to what I wore was went we went out to a movie for Trevor’s birthday.  I just wore a tshirt but I threw on a skirt.

And I love the yo-yo headband I made.  Tutorial on it coming soon…  (Don’t look too close at this picture – I discovered I have several gray hairs and I can’t stop looking at them!  I need to run and get some hairdye, quick!)

Now, when you view Little Miss Momma’s art of headband wearing examples, she shows tons where they’re wearing it across their head – it always seems cute on blogs and in pictures, but in real life, I feel completely ridiculous.  See:

 When I flipped it that way and had Trevor take a picture he’s all “why?  for a joke or something” and I said no, I just need to get opinions when I stick it on my blog and he said “oh, alright, just as long as you’re not going out in public with it like that”  I told him it’s all the rage, but he wasn’t sold.

So, how about you  – – – have you ever braved wearing a headband across the forehead??  Maybe it doesn’t work with short hair?  Maybe my bangs need to be out?  Maybe it’s just ridiculous?  Maybe I’m not fashion confident enough to try it??  Thoughts??

    I love all your headbands. I am constantly in a ponytail with a headband – I even took a class last week and made one similar to your yellow/gray one. I am with you on the across the forehead. Only seen it cute on very few people – I am not included in that.

    Ha! I was going to post a silly picture of my short hair with the across the forehead look too. Doesn’t work for me either. My husband also gave me the thumbs down.

    Love all of your headbands, especially the yellow and gray one! And I’m with you on the headband across the forehead…i think that is reserved for pop stars and girls 25 and under. :) You still look adorable though!

    I think the headbands are cute. Looking forward to the tutorial on the last one! But I am with you on the across the forehead look -not a fan… i don’t think many people can pull it off.

    I think if it were a young girl with long straight hair, (all the same length), she could pull off the across the forehead look. But as with all things, I think the more we see something, the more we are used to it. So if you wore it that way, and it caught on, maybe it would look normal. But for now, It kind of looks like odd.

    I wish I looked as good as you do on a day to day basis, but I’m afraid I look scruffy. :)

    Yeah… the headband across the forehead look is NOT one I can pull off. And I have long hair… I just feel like a doofus. But really, I don’t wear any headbands, so kudos to you for trying it! They all look great by the way!

    I love your headbands. I definitely need to move them up on my to do list. If you’re working around the house playing with kids it doesn’t make sense to be dressed up. Comfy jean shorts, t-shirt, and cute head band. You still look cute! As for the last look… What if you tried having some tufts of hair out and some in. I think that it would look better with just a few spots poking through.

    Love your headbands. I don’t wear big puffy ones, only the styles you have pictured. I get compliments when I do wear headbands, but still feel kind of self conscious and rarely wear them. I definitely wouldn’t do the across the forehead look. They look pretty in pictures on some girls, but I think they are just that- more of an artistic thing for photos and not meant fo the real world.

    I love your head bands. And your outfits are cute too.
    I started making some with flowers last summer and now have started to expand this year. I even started a trend at work. Since I returned back to work from maternity leave in April women are starting to wear them. My team couldn’t believe I started a trend.

    I love your headbands. As far as wearing them across the forehead, the last time I did that was in the early 70’s when I had a beaded Indian (Native American) styled band…you know when we all still dressed like hippies and disco was starting to take over. Not happening today.

    I think your across the forehead headband looks just as cute as all the other girls I see in blogland wearing them that way. But I am with you – I put it on and I instantly feeling like an immediate goof ball. I’ll be leaving that style to the more gutsy fashionistas! All your bands are super cute! Your grey knotted t-shirt one… gonna try to make me one!

    I had the same reaction when wearing them this week! Thanks for the tutorials. I would love to try the braided t. Can’t wait for your Yo Yo tutorial too!
