Yesterday, whilst having a coffee catch up with an interstate friend, I asked her why so many people were staring at me, she replied "it's because you have a bunch of flowers on your head!".
I corrected her, of course. It was actually a crown of flowers and most certainly not a randomly selected bunch picked from the garden. In fact, I spent a whole 45 minutes in Topshop the week before trying to replace my old favourite that I had lost at Splendour in the Grass!
Ahh the flower crown... It has undertaken such a dramatic turnaround in the last few years!
Once an accessory only worn by the boho hippie gals, it suddenly became mainstream a few years ago. Adorning many heads at music festivals in 2012/3, see photos of Kendall and Kylie Jenner below, the flower crown has developed into a fun way to spruce up an outfit for a special event a la Katy Perry, Delta Goodrem, Lana Wilkinson and even Kate Middleton (see gallery below)
A flower crown adds a touch of flair to your everyday errands outfit, and effortlessly elevates your look from merely i woke up like this to i woke up like this AND i put some flowers in my hair!
They're so pretty and look absolutely gorgeous in photographs too.
Would you dear to wear a flower crown? Prepare for an onslaught of compliments if you do!
