I haven’t posted for the last couple of days because… my brother got engaged!! Mazal tov! My husband and I are so happy to be getting an incredible little sister, who also will definitely be a future Lady Wrap Star. Here is the wrap that I wore to celebrate with them:
There was a time when I went through a contrasting colour phase; All the colours I wore had to be contrast with each other, especially the ones on my head! Blue and orange, yellow and purple, green and pink, etc. would all make bold appearances together. However, lately I am going through a monochromatic phase where I will pair together blue and green, purple and navy, red and orange, and pink with blush. Today was no exception! What colour pairings are you loving lately?
My ‘Cat in the Hat’ Hat
Grey Day – Blue Scarf!
The rainy weather today called for a simple regal wrap turban. This is by far my most worn style – it’s so easy once you get the knack of it, and everyone always asks how it is done! There are no limits to how casual or fancy it can be, especially when you factor in accessories 🙂
Friday Fancy :)
My trusty sari scarf when I need something dressy, that matches everything and is easy to tie… never fails! (For a tutorial on how to wrap one of these, take a look HERE.)
So… I started the day off with a beautiful navy and turquoise wrap:
But someone (*cough) didn’t account for the purse/backpack straps that I would be taking on and off all day, so a switch was needed because the hanging tails kept getting tangled. Luckily I brought along a hat! So now the rest of the day will be spent in this:
I really like this hat! It matches so much of my wardrobe and is the perfect size.
Hope you’re all having a lovely day!
*~Twisty Flowers ~*
Today I tried a new twist on the classic long scarf bun:
I did a basic long scarf bun (see how: here), and twisted the end around. Instead of tucking the final end in under the bun, I tucked it into the actual twist, leaving the end hanging, and adding a flower pin. Voila!
Teal for Today!
My favourite colour is turquoise/teal tones, so today I was definitely wrapped in my colour of choice!
This wrap was done in a hurry, and is a haphazard version of the layered volumous regal wrap style, except I only used two long scarves. Even though the look is sloppy, I got many smiles and compliments throughout the day!
Daily Scarf Creation!
This wrap didn’t budge from dawn until late at night… even though the sash is slippery silk!
To do this, I did a basic Regal Wrap -Turban with a lilac pashmina scarf, and added a silk sash in for contrast. Kept my head warm in today’s crazy rain/wind/snow!
Today’s Special: The Classic Braid
I’ve found myself in a bit of a “need to always create something new!” hair wrapping rut. It seems that in my quest to create fresh and inspiring hair wraps, I have forgotten to continue rocking the classic “Andrea” wraps that I have created in the past. Also, most of you on this new site haven’t even seen these wraps yet! So, today I decided to wear a classic single braid with a cute butterfly pin. This wrap was one of my first tutorials that I made, and you can find it here.
Bring On the Colour!
Brrrrr! It’s cold outside where I’m living, so, armed with inspiration from today’s “Lady Wrap Star”, Elizabeth (see post here), I decided to don a bright square scarf, add another bright long scarf and finish it off with twists! My awesome husband also took these photos, which resulted in much nicer shots than the ones I take of myself 🙂
And here is an artsy shot of half my smiling face:
I hope that everyone had a lovely weekend and is looking forward to a productive week filled with beautiful moments, surprises, achievements, special connections and of course, gorgeous head wraps!
