If you follow me on Instagram, you know I wore this outfit last Friday. Last week was insanity – long hours at the office, dreadful commutes, Emerson had nightmares.. you name it, I drank a lot of coffee to compensate for stress and lack of sleep and the last day of the week left me looking as frazzled as I felt. No way was I going to try to make my hair look good or wear something that wasn't super easy and comfortable. Honestly, I wasn't going to do an outfit post, but well… I don't try to be HIGH FASHUN, I use my outfit posts to show real-world personal style on a woman who loves fashion and is over 30 and over a size 10… so here you go, real life!

Nepali TDM Designs sent me this cashmere headband/turband and I thought it was pretty awesome. Soft and cozy, keeps my ears warm this winter, and it hides a really bad hair day! Brilliant! Not only that, the amazing folks at Nepali by TDM Designs are offering Wardrobe Oxygen readers 50% off these cashmere headbands! They come in a bevy of colors, can be adjusted to be wider or more narrow, and your purchase will help support the women of Nepal with above-market compensation, access to healthcare, and scholarships for the education of their children in order to help break the cycle of poverty.  Use code ellie50 at checkout – this code will only work for the headband. However, with code wardrobeoxygen you can 25% off the rest of the site!

    I picked up this beauty in black and LOVE it. I have yet to wear it like you do but instead wear it “under” my hair and pull it back. Thanks for the link to purchase!

      Awesome!! I too have worn it more like a headband, and now that it’s super cold I often wear it over my ears like earmuffs when in the house 🙂

        Here’s how I wore it yesterday 🙂 You inspire me to step out of my comfort zone daily and for that I thank you, Allie!

    You know, I’m not a fan of these turbands usually… But I have to admit you are ROCKIN this look so much I might have to reconsider! Love it!

    I think you nailed it. Brings more interest to your hair than my go-to “I can’t be arsed” messy bun on bad hair days. I’m also kinda coveting that purse.

    I’m so glad you decided to post it! You are, of course, totally right — so much of your blog’s appeal comes from the full spectrum perspective you offer! And come on, a turban headband? That’s totally hi-fashun. 😉

    I like it. I have several images of women wearing turbans in my Pinterest board but up to date have only worn them once. Your post reminded me that turbans work 🙂

    You look Young and Fancy Free in this outfit. Enjoy your Life!
