CRAZY LOVE! Jameson Monroe Headbands!!!

The question that I get more than any other question is "Where do you get Griffin's headbands?".  Seriously - every. single. day.  So today I decided to talk about how much I CRAZY LOVE Jameson Monroe!



When I was pregnant with Griffin I bought lots of cute, teeny little grosgrain bows and then, over time, I got rid of all of them.  I found that my very favorite kind of bow for Griffin were the XL Chiffon headbands from Jameson Monroe.  They make a statement, come in TONS of colors and stay on REALLY well.  Since summer they've kind of become Griffin's "signature look" (omg - did I seriously just type that?!?!!) as a quick glance through my Instagram will prove...


Those were all recent pics... but check out how stinkin' adorable it was on her when she was about one month old!  I never ordered the "newborn" size... always the infant - toddler and I just knotted the elastic until she grew into them.
Chelsea also does AMAZING custom headbands.  Seriously... you can give her any "theme" and she'll come up with something FABULOUS!!! Check out the "chicken" headband she came up with to match Griffin's Halloween costume!



And her seasonal stuff is TO DIE FOR!  This is the Queen of Hearts headband :)

On several occasions I've sent her pics of an outfit and she's made something PERFECT to match...
 

 This cupcakes and lace headband was perfect with Griffins Matilda Jane dedication dress...

... and she wears it now with other outfits as well!

This band was part of her "Parisian Chic" collection and I die every time she wears it...

And this one is from the "can can collection"...

The large silk flowers are also a favorite... let's be real... I love them all.
 When I emailed Chelsea and told her I was planning on adding her to my "crazy love" series so I could share my obsession with y'all she wanted to offer y'all a 20% off discount code!  Enter "Andrea" at checkout to get 20% off your order! YAY!!!! And... she also wanted to give one lucky reader a $30 SHOP CREDIT!!! 


If I was eligible to win (hahaha) here's what I'd pick with my credit (in case you need some ideas)

I'm planning on ordering THIS headband to match G's Easter outfit...

... and THIS one screams summer...
So... on to the other headband related question I get a lot... how do I store Griffin's headbands???

I blogged about this a while ago, but I've revised a little bit since then so here it goes again.  
I attached command hooks horizontally on the wall behind her door (I had them hanging vertically, but they kept falling off... hanging them this way they're being "pulled" the way they were designed to be).  I attached wire in between them (just random wire I had in the garage) and then used curtain clips from IKEA to "string" them on the wire.

This works well for me because I can see them all, they're not a tangled mess and when a clip is empty I know that the headband is probably sitting on the counter and needs to get hung back up.





I know that a large majority of you probably think I'm crazy after this post - but dressing Griffin is my hobby :)  I used to knit and craft and do all kinds of fun things (before I was chasing after three kiddos after working all day) so now my hobbies include headbands, accessories and clothes (which I'm planning on sharing next week!)

I hope y'all find LOTS of fun things for your girlies (these would be great gifts for nieces, friends, etc!) and I can't wait to hear about what you get!!! :)

  3. Adorable! Sadly, my daughter has ripped headbands and clips off since she was about a year. At 3 now she has a bit more hair, but still refuses to wear anything. I'm amazed how your daughter keeps them on! Lucky you LOL!

I have found myself wondering how you find the time and I now I get that it's your hobby! Love it!
