Time doesn't stop and wait for anyone. I don't know about you, but my days are spent working full time, making dinner, running errands, squeezing in some quality time with the husband, and trying to fit in some extra curricular activities ( crafting, trying new recipes, blogging, etc!) I now value every ounce of sleep that I can get! With busy lives and not enough time in the day, it's important to me to have some go-to pieces that can easily make you look put together. A well tailored skirt and heels are an easy way to feel stylish and put together without having to make a ton of effort. I loved this skirt from the moment I saw it and it is definitely a fun color to wear during all seasons. My favorite part of this outfit is the retro wrap headband I'm sporting. Have you heard of Mint and Arrows? This Etsy shop is adorable and has everything from retro headbands and jewelry, to baby car seat covers! Meagan Wolter, the shop owner, is extremely talented at making these headbands and she's got them in a MILLION different prints (click HERE to see for yourself!) My favorites
I fell in love with this sparrow print the moment I saw it. These headbands are so easy to put on and the best part about them in my opinion, THEY DON'T HURT YOUR HEAD! There are so many times where regular headbands give me a headache from hell. Either they're too tight on your head, or they're too loose and keep sliding around throughout the day. These wrap headbands are the perfect solution! You can easily tie them on your head, and adjust it as needed ( mine stayed in place ALL DAY , even with all the psycho wind that we have here in Utah!) Another pro about Mint and Arrows' headbands is that they are extremely affordable. Only costing $6.00, these headbands are perfect to try out this fun retro trend and they definitely would make a great gift for the upcoming holidays!
