Accessories Access: Fabric Headbands for Fall from Old Navy!


For busy days of lesson planning, running around with the family, getting dinner going, & maybe some downtime, sometimes there’s not enough room in the day to get all gussied up. However, sometimes all it takes is one accessory to upgrade a look. Today’s recommendation is the fabric headband. For fall, what better way is there to functionally keep your hair out of your face, frame your face, & accentuate your personality than with a headband?

With the below selections from Old Navy, I’ve got headbands on the bean fit fun fall gatherings, such as apple picking & coordinating with a plaid & denim look, taking a drive to eastern Long Island in leggings & new boots, or getting together for some coffee with the girls in a sweater dress & tights. Headbands work in all of those scenarios!

SHOP: braided fabric-covered headbands in brown corduroy + black floral woven @Old Navy (on sale: $13.00).

SHOP: fabric-covered headbands in green + yellow plaid @Old Navy (on sale: $14.00).

SHOP: fabric-covered headbands in light black heather @Old Navy (on sale: $14.00).

The Stylish Five: Sale Finds @Topshop ($10 & Under)


It’s been a little while since my last post in The Stylish Five b/c of all the hype surrounding this week’s Emmy Awards, but here I am with five fun picks for $10 or under!

I was checking out the latest sale items @Topshop, when I realized that I needed to do some perfect price point product posting (try saying that 10x fast!).  So why not get ready for next summer with classic espadrille wedges in coral for $10.00?  They’re also available in pink stripe & red polka dot, to coordinate with an eyelet or jersey babydoll dress.  I’m crazy for belts this season (took me long enough, right?) & just love this lace & eyelet belt, which suffice to say, is no longer available, but still worth acknowledging b/c it was also $10.00, marked down from $50.00.  Sad face.

When we talk about investing in next year’s summer wardrobe, finding a delicate shirred jersey sundress in yellow like this for $10.00 is exactly what I’m talking about!  I know my friend, Stacey, will flip over the blue orchid headband for $6.00, a must for any Style Darling with an affinity for hair accessories. It’s all things whimsical & feminine to add to a paisley print tunic top or graphic tee / skinny jeans combo!  If you’re not a headband gal, then try these glass bead hoop earrings for $10.00.  They’re a combination of a classic hoop & drop earring, all in one!

If you’re a bargain hunter like me, be sure to check out my previous posts in The $100 Challenge to see how you can put together an entire look for $100! What’ your favorite Topshop purchase?  How much would you spend on end-of-the-season finds to prepare for next year? Would you wear any of these five picks?  Happy Styling!

The Stylish Five: Hip Hair Accessories ($10 & Under)!


When you’re having fun out & about in the sun, it’s sometimes too hot out to keep your hair down (unless you’re lucky enough to live in one of those always-perfect climates).  However, an easy fix to keeping your hair stylish amid the weather is with hair accessories.  Back in October, I featured The Stylish Five: Get Happy About Headbands ($10 & Under)!, so I’m pretty well-versed in hair-ware!  Featuring clips, pins, & headbands is always fun b/c there’s just so much variety with feathers, rhinestones, animal prints, & flowers.

Here I’ve selected a rhinestone encrusted headband for $5.80 @Forever 21, which is perfect to dress up a basic tee or to put with something dressier like a cocktail dress (very Blair Waldorf!).  Next up, add some flair with feathers in this clip duo from Wet Seal for $7.00.  They’re cute for pulling back bangs or clipping onto the top of your ponytail! I love pulling my bangs back (in between haircuts) with a bobby pin & the extra delicate daisy detail just screams summer, available @Fred Flare for $6.00! Another fun accessory is a single flower clip like the green one from Target for $3.99.  If you’re crafty, you can even attach a safety-pin to it to wear on the lapel of your blazer or on a canvas tote bag!  Lastly, I saved my favorite, a “leopard blossom” headband, perfect to jazz up an LBD or summer romper.  Check it out @Charlotte Russe for a mere $6.50!
