flowers in your hair

It's not your wedding day or your birthday or any special day for that matter. Just a normal summer day. And you're heading out with your friends for lunch. I absolutely love the thought of wearing fresh flowers in your hair, but my Everygirl comrades all said no one does that. Wouldn't happen. So of course now I'm determined to do it. I think it will go perfectly with my summer frock obsession.

What about you–would you sport fresh flowers in your hair?

Reminds me of this darling little tune by The Lumineers, coincidentally titled... pause for shock "Flowers in Your Hair."

And the lyrics are the perfect amount of heart-warming goodness:

When we were younger
we thought Everyone was on our side
Then we grew a little bit
And romanticized the time I saw
Flowers in your hair
It takes a boy to live
It takes a man to pretend he was there 

So then we grew a little and knew a lot 
And now we demonstrated it to the cops 
And all the things we said 
We were self-assured 
Cause it's a long road to wisdom 
But it's a short one 
To being ignored 

Be in my eyes 
Be in my heart 
Be in my eyes ai yai yai
And be in my heart 

So now I think that I could 
Love you back 
And I hope it's not too late cause you're so attractive 
And the way you move 
I won't close my eyes 
It takes a man to live 
It takes a woman to make him compromise 

 Be in my eyes 
Be in my heart 
Be in my eyes ai yai yai 
And be in my heart


  1. My aunt wears flowers in her hair all the time. Its a very pretty look! I think you should be yourself go for it! I'll start the trend in D.C. if that would help :)

  2. I feel like its one of those things that everyone says nobody could pull off but then whoever does test it out gets showered with compliments. I would definitely go for it with a breezy sundress!

  3. I have never done it, but I think it would look very lovely. Especially in the summer :)

  4. This totally just brightened my morning! I love the look, it's so feminine and unexpected.

    and please check out today's post, too!

  5. lovely photos! I only wear flower in my hair when I go to a fancy event , so I match it with my dress :)

  6. Who knew Selena Gomez was so cute?! Daisies in your hair totally reminds me of never ending summer days.

  7. I wear flowers in my hair occasionally, fresh or fake, summer or winter, to brunch or even a nightclub :P I'm not particularly eccentric or bohemian either, just your average (everygirl!) urban-suburban fashion-obsessed twenty-something. It's a whimsical thing really, like wearing a floppy hat or red lipstick when you don't really see anyone else doing it. Sometimes people will comment but honestly it's no big deal... if anything you'll be complimented! So wear flowers in your hair if you want to and enjoy the hell out of doing so, regardless of what other people think or do. The end! :D

  8. I love this idea! I would totally rock it.
