Throwback Thursday: My Love of Crazy Headbands

This wide red fabric headband was my everything in 7th grade. Especially teamed with those huge red and white earrings.
As a kid, I had what one might call a love affair (read: obsession) with headbands. As a small child of 7 or 8, I actually had a bunch of dresses that came with MATCHING headbands, which I thought were the coolest thing ever. But throughout my younger years, my love of headbands really knew no bounds. Take a walk down memory lane with me as I share some of my favorite headband moments.

Enjoying a burger with my brother during our first trip to Washington, D.C. -- and our very first trip to the Hard Rock Cafe! Accompanied by my shimmery gold headband, which matched my jeweled shirt and vest combo.

Another shot in Washington, D.C., this time at the National Geographic Museum. Wearing a headband I fashioned myself out of a printed scarf.

This was actually taken the same day as the first picture in this post, which happened to be Valentine's Day. I was SO proud of my coordinated red and white ensemble.

Yet another coordinated headband and outfit moment! The day I realized the oversized bow on this headband matched my floral top was a happy one indeed. Seen here with my mom, I believe on our trip to Washington, D.C.

When I was in 7th grade, I participated in something called the Reader's Challenge at my local library, which basically meant I read a bunch of books and competed in a trivia competition about them. (What can I say, I was cool.) Seen here at the competition with my favorite headband of 1993, the black fabric one with a huge tonal flower.

Feeding a goat at a petting zoo during a family vacation. What you can't really see is that I'm wearing a tee and shorts with a matching floral pattern -- and my pink knotted headband matches the pink flowers in the outfit.

No trip to Disney World is complete without mouse ears! Scored these sparkly Minnie Mouse ones during my family vacation there in 2012.

And lest you think my love of the headband died when I left junior high ...

Wearing a crocheted gold headband (and my favorite Alexander Wang Zipper Sunglasses) whilst taking a selfie on Martha's Vineyard just last week.

What can I say? Once a headband wearer, always a headband wearer.
