Scroll through Pinterest and you will see lots of flower crowns. Lots and lots. I couldn’t be happier to see everyone embracing flower crowns and turning into bohemian forest nymphs for all of their special occasions. For my wedding I wore a subdued crown with spots of baby’s breath, and my bridesmaids made more colorful ones; they were the perfect addition to my simple, whimsical, laid-back wedding.

There is just something about a classic felt bow sitting in wispy toddler hair that makes my heart go kaboom. I am a big fan of simple, timeless kid style, and a nice little bow is high on my list of things that give me cartoon heart eyes. Admittedly, my daughter, Vi, doesn’t have an ultra-girly wardrobe. I’m not a fan of pink, poofiness, or the flowery graphics that seem to be eve-ry-where on toddler girl clothes. However, I am a fan of bows. Lots and lots of bows. My favorites are the super simple ones—the ones that look like they could have been plucked from any little girls’ head in the last century. Maybe that is the appeal? A bow with a story. I also love a little modern twist: a pattern or a color that brings it right into 2016. So when I saw this groovy felt, I […]
