Headboards and Headbands

I've had what I believe to be a clever post title in my 'head' for several months now and finally deemed it worthy to publish. It's a bit of a stretch from what I said I would mainly cover on Wednesday's stILe finds but around here, I make the rules.

Oh how I love a good headboard. Too bad I didn't realize this before I chose ours and somehow "settled" on a wrought iron one. These days, headboards covered in fabric (add in some nailhead trim) get me more excited than a teenage girl who just met Justin Bieber.

These pillows express exactly how I feel about this headboard.

Mom says to daughter, "Go to your room, you're grounded."

Daughter replies, "I don't care, I have some amazing headboards in there."

Bad joke, sorry.

Okay, now I'm really jealous. Check out that detail.

This is what I'm talking about. Impact, impact. It's all about the impact.

On to some headbands.

Thank you headbands for always being there for me when my bangs go through that awkward growing out phase.  You are what I grab first when I wash my face in the a.m and p.m., and you add just enough oomph to my most ordinary of outfits.

Room My Outfit

As soon as I laid eyes on this photo (via Coco + Kelley), I was in love. Don't you wish you could prance around dressed like this sometimes? No?Just me? Fine. I've had a slight infatuation with knee highs since my days of Clueless and still wear them on occasion even though I'm no longer thirteen. The styling is a mix of classic, playful with a tad girlie. And I'm madly, deeply in love with the color combo.


This room by Massucco Warner Miller immediately came to mind.


Not an exact representation, but the coral color is pretty spot-on.
