Bandanas are Back

Bandanas have been in my life ever since I can remember. However, I was not always so fond of them as I am now. I have many memories of my mom accessorizing my hair with bandanas during my childhood saying how stylish they were when she was growing up despite my incessant protests that I looked ridiculous. As I grew, I learned to tolerate them, and even like them on certain occasions. Even so, I can only recall a handful of times I have been seen sporting one in the past eight years.

Recently bandanas have come full circle and made a stylish and trendy reappearance.  This return began at music festivals like Coachella, notorious for its stylishly dressed attendees in eclectic and western inspired pieces.  I for one, am ecstatic that is western trend is coming back for the sheer versatility of the bandana.  Unlike previous trends gracing festival grounds, this ‘It’ accessory is very affordable and  has some real practicality to it, too.  A bandana can be worn as a head wrap, a headband, a scarf, a choker, a bracelet, and I have even seen it worn as a top on some occasions. So many possibilities!

Summer White Dress

It is an exciting time right now.  I have my last day of school this Friday and then I go on senior internship for a month! With graduation just around the corner I realised I need to start looking for a dress.

My school has a tradition of the girls all wearing white dresses.I do not know why and  I am not sure if other schools do that as well, but here is some inspiration whether you are looking for a graduation dress or simply just want a great dress for summer:
