Spring Style: How To Wear Flowers In Your Hair Without Looking Like A Kid

Spring is in the air! The Midwest almost hit 90 degrees last week. That means that it’s officially time for pastels and florals to dominate your wardrobe. Baby pink and lavender, here I come!

Being a nice down-home farm girl, there’s one quintessential spring fashion statement that you can’t escape from. Here where we actually have wildflowers growing within a mile of our home, grown women still choose to put flowers in their hair.

I know what you’re thinking. Indiana isn’t Hawaii. How do we get away with this tropical fashion statement without looking like a little kid? After all, young children can wear flowers at any time and be adorable. But grown women? Walking around their day to day life with… flowers?

No, I’m not just talking about weddings and proms either. Honestly, I’m referring to a normal person running to the grocery store. Except she has a flower in her hair. It’s cute and springy and I promise that it can be done without looking immature or out-of-place. Here’s how.

    Good God, I hope no one actually does this–in the Midwest or anywhere else. There’s a reason why there are very few photos of this trend actually working.

    I think its sweet when my boyfriend tucks a flower into my hair style as we walk down the country roads, but i cant say i want a real flower in my hair as an every day style. I live in Indiana, but i cant stay I’ve seen anyone with real flowers in their hair outside, even during a festival.

    I much prefer silk fabric flowers, sometimes with gems in them to bling it out a little if i want something a little more upscale. Right now I am all about my crocheted headbands, which you can easily make crocheted flowers to attach to.

    Plus these are rewearable, and you dont have to working about them falling out/off, wilting or attracting bees. The midwest has plenty of bugs, i prefer to not encourage them to be on me any more then i have to
