When I was growing up bandanas had a different connotation, and I remember my friend’s parents telling me not to wear them whenever we went to LA on the weekends. But lately I’ve been borrowing (stealing) my friend’s bandana to help me through the awkward pixie grow out stage (see evidence) and I’ve grown rather fond of its familiar paisley print. Bandana street style is probably the cheapest fashion blogger accessory in all of history. I’ve seen them in retail stores like Topshop for upwards of $10 dollars, and in vintage stores for even more! It would seem the blogger bandana brand of choice is Lala Berlin, which will run about $169 a pop. But luckily my friend has the inside scoop and told me you can get them at Hobby Lobby for approximately one dollar.

I’ve also read that if you want to wear it as a scarf you should probably opt for the larger, 27″ variety (most are 22″) unless of course you’re going for the cute little neckerchief look. Which I dig. I’m about 2 seconds away from hitting ‘Complete Order’ on Amazon for one in white and one in black. At $1.99 each they might be the cheapest street style induced purchase I’ve made to date. This is a welcome relief for a certified scarf addict, and if all goes to plan I have a feeling these super cheap scarves will serve me well this spring.

I’m imagining wearing the white one to work with a grey tee and a navy blazer, and the black one with a white button down and camel coat… ok so I don’t own a camel coat. In that case the black one with a white blazer and a super casual t-shirt. Does anyone else plan out future outfits before they make a purchase?

Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend!
