Hot or Not: Extra-Large Hair Accessories

Happy Monday, sweet readers!  Did everyone have a good weekend?  I spent Saturday night celebrating my friend’s birthday with a yummy dinner, and enjoyed the opportunity to dress up a little bit, since I wear scrubs 45 hours a week!

I chose to accessorize my outfit with an oversize grey chiffon flower from Anthropologie.  Take a look:

I love wearing headbands and flowers, but I’ve never actually worn one this large before.  At first, I wasn’t totally sure I could pull it off.  But you know… I like it!

I think the trick to getting this look right is keeping it simple with the rest of your accessories.  And a tip for those of you who plan on trying out an oversize headpiece: bobby pin your hair into place first.  If you try to hold your hair back using the flower/bow/etc… itself, it will weigh itself down and fall right off your head!

So, now you know my opinion.  What do you think?


Are you a fan of extra-large hair accessories?  Do you own one?  Got any good tips for pulling it off?  Tell me what you think in the comments!

    Kim, you look so adorable! you can pull anything off! I love large hair accessories but I think I’m getting a little too old to wear them…maybe I’ll rock them for another year and lie about my age. haha.
