In Which She Wears Flowers in Her Hair (or at least tries)

It seems I had a wild hair recently and decided to try something new. Something fun, something a little sassy.

In an effort to cute up my boring angle bob I thought I'd throw a flower hair clip in the mix.

Because I'm almost 42.

Even though I apparently think I'm still 9 and can wear flower hair clips.

(Please disregard the overgrown highlights, glaring roots and random sprouts of gray. I am between hair appointments. Like way in between.)

I clipped it on the left.

I clipped it across my bangs on the right. And now I can't decide if I can really pull this off after all.

I wore it Saturday (on the left side) to take Annelise to a birthday party and not one single mom said anything. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

So of course I immediately decided they all thought it looked ridiculous and were too polite to tell me so.

Bless my heart.

Scott tried to reassure me, but, no offense, he's a dude.

So I'm turning to the Internets for validation and morale boosting.

You know, like always.

If you would be ever so kind to take another peek at the left side...and the right side...then tell me what you think (and you don't even have to soften it with a "bless your heart").

Thank you, my dear Internets.
****The posy hair clips are from The Pleated Poppy, just in case you want to order some for yourself (c'mon join me!)--or your young daughter.


  1. i think you rock it on either side!

  2. I love it!
    both sides-- but the left is my fav.

  3. I think both sides look good.

    I enjoyed your "fighting the frump" label.

  4. I wear clippies all the time....and almost 41! Who says we have to stop having fun, girlfriend? (it's not like we are wearing minis with thigh high socks and platforms!;)
    oh....and the right side is my fav! ;) You rock it!

  5. I think it looks great! I think I like the left side best, but I don't know for sure. :)

  6. I love it....it looks very cute!! I think it looks good on either side. :)

  7. Okay, thanks y'all so very much! I feel much better once I had some trusted girl input (no offense, Scott).
