Do I have a penchant for the dramatic? I would say not. But yes right now, in this moment, this hairband truly does feel like the best £8 I ever did spend. I mean, I have not donned a hairband since circa 1995 when the black, velvet, padded variety was the look du jour. And yet, here I am, dealing with the ever so slight headache just behind the ears that goes hand in hand with excessive hairband wear. I feel it is worth it. I may or may not grow out my fringe, in fact the hairband looks good with the bangs and without, with hair up in a bun and down, such is her versatility.
Add in the perfect mustard yellow, lace sundress and a wall of flowering jasmine and you know when you see a photo and just think – this, this is my new profile pic? Yeah, that.
So, until further notice you can find me scouring Asos and Anthropologie in a bid to rapidly extend my new headwear collection and packing for my imminent move to the South of France where all photo backdrops could be so beautiful*…
*Only one of those is true.
