I like to consider myself a lover of flowers and the natural beauties of the world. It’s quite fitting that I have such a great appreciation for flowers. Or maybe an obsession with them, as many of my friends will tell you. I’m the kind of girl who wants to adorn my hair in pretty hair ornaments. My favorite go-to fashion hair accessory is flower clips.
Why flower clips? They are beautiful and come in different colors, shapes, and sizes. As much as I would love to wear the real thing with my outfits (like a true Hawaiian girl), I’ll have to settle for the fabric and satin made imitations. Not that those are bad at all. You can find a lot of fantastic flower hair accessories in places like H&M, and at an affordable price too.
I think these accessories are great for both casual and formal outfits. It can turn an otherwise plain bun into one of elegance. For example, adding a big rose to a bun can drastically transform your hairstyle in a huge way. Not only is it eye catching, but it can also spice up a very basic looking outfit.
The flower accessory is a fun and flirty piece to wear in the spring or summer. I always loved how Hawaiian girls get to wear flowers in their hair. It’s such a natural way of decorating your hair, and who doesn’t love a pretty flower accentuating a pretty face? I also enjoy matching the color of my flower with my outfit. Feel like matching your flower with your outfit is a bit tacky? You can mix the colors too. I would say get a bunch of these flower clips in any color you want, and play around with them. See what works for you. You can really get creative with them if you have a bunch on hand.
Any one ever tried the flower hair accessory look? If not, would you try it out yourself?

I can appreciate some well done flower accessories, but my biggest issue with them is that they too often look gaudy. It can’t be helped is most places that they have to be fake, especially where I’m from, but I’m still surprised at how difficult it seems to be for companies to produce tasteful pieces. Sadly, there isn’t an H&M where I live! If I do ever find a flower accessory in person that I like, I definitely will give it a try…probably either flower clips or maybe a larger hair pin for an up-do.
That’s too bad that you don’t have an H&M where you live. I often buy a lot of my flower accessories from them. I really think they do a good job with making them look nice without it coming off as gaudy. I have been to stores where the accessories often come off as overly done, or gaudy as you have said. Definitely try one out when you find something you like. 😉
