I swear to you that I’m not normally this vain. If you ask any of my close friends, they’ll tell you that I’m pretty picky when it comes to liking pictures of myself. But something magical happened this past weekend and my boyfriend snapped a ton of great portraits. I’ve never liked this many from a style shoot! Perhaps it’s the photographer, perhaps it’s the outfit. Perhaps it’s the fact that I have a lovely new Maelu head wrap on!

They make a lovely assortment of scarves, kimonos, and headbands – all block printed by Indian artisans.


I won’t lie to you, it took me a couple tries to get this head wrap looking anything but awkward. As I was adjusting it, I felt like I looked like something in-between a ninja and a gypsy fortune teller. But once I finally got the hang of it, I was feelin’ pretty darn cute…
