Look, this may come across as judgemental – in fact I know it does – but I have always hated baby headbands with a passion. I’ve called them so many names, uttered my grievances to friends and family alike until one Sunday afternoon during a shopping trip with my husband. Adam was carrying Edith and we headed into a local shop to buy her (and I’m quoting this) ” something pretty for being such a good little girl for Daddy “. So sweet.
When we went in there were no dresses or outfits left in her size that we liked and there was the usual obligatory jewellery and accessories stand that you find in all little girls shops. Adam wandered over and before I could stop him, he had slipped the forbidden headband on to my baby’s perfect head. I prepared to throw a fit. What on earth was he doing?? Headbands are awful, they look terrible… And then I saw her cute little face and boom. Headband-gate was officially over and this baby was open for business!
Since that day, we have succumbed, and have a couple of headbands for babies. Nothing too flashy or garish but simple and pretty, something that won’t itch her head, is adjustable and looks seriously, ovary-twitchingly sweet. Just like the headbands from Ivy & Nell.
What I especially love about Ivy & Nell is that their designs aren’t over the top and are made with little ones in mind by professional Milliners. They range is size from newborn (for the seriously hardcore headband lovers amongst you) to adult headpieces for you to wear too. Their headbands are designed using the highest quality fabrics and accessories, from super soft sari yarn to adorable paper flowers.
Whatever your thoughts are on baby headbands, you could not help but love these for an older little girl. So sweet and delicate, they’re the sweetest gift for flower girls.
