Bow Head






Breakdown:
shirt- Levi's [similar]
leggings- Zara [same]
scarf- vintage
boots- Franco Sarto via TJ Maxx [similar]

As a child of the 90s, I had a crazy collection of bows when I was little. Bigger than my head? No problem. With dooly bobs and whirly gigs hanging off? Accepted. Fuzzy with glitter and sequins? Just a regular bow for playing outside. My older cousins have called me Bow Head since then and, though I revamped my bow obsession in high school, I am back from a hiatus in the form of head scarves! I have worn them countless times in the last few years, but rarely do a tie them in a bow. I usually go with a turban style unless, like on this day, I am feeling particularly sassy. 

A bow on top of my head is way girly for me, so I kept a balance between girly and boyish by wearing a utility shirt, faux leather leggings, and a new pair of Chelsea boots. I love the old school style of wearing a head scarf, but it can feel too feminine for my mood some days. It's a juggle of aesthetics doing this whole tomboy chic thing, but my closet is becoming more geared toward taking it on. Chunky sweaters, men's shirts, skinny pants, and boots are essential. I'm not cool enough to rock a cool hair cut like these ladies (one of my favorite Pinners, btw), but the head scarf adds flair just like a short hair style would. 

What do you think? How do you balance feminine and masculine?

  2. OH HI BOW HEAD. That reminds me of the Andy Milonakas show. Do you remember that? I got peas on my head but don't call me a pea head, bees on my head, but don't call me a pea head, Bruce Lee's on my head, but don't call me a Lee Head...

    Bow Head.
