... my newest version of a flower crown ...

I am so excited with my latest design...
my new version of  the emerging flower crown trend.

I wrote last week here ...
about a crown I designed years ago..
that was  featured in WWD.
 how my beautiful daughter wore this vintage piece to
a Bhldn event in Beverly Hills.

This got me thinking how much I enjoyed that special piece made with antique flowers...
and how I would love to have
a modern version...

I wanted a flower crown that was age appropriate....
not wanting to give the impression I was reaching back to times gone by...
I wanted a piece that was in scale to my size and frame

just as importantly...
I wanted a piece I was excited to wear!

This floral crown is a statement headpiece to be sure..
part headband...
part hat...
and the  perfect  finishing piece for an easy life style.

To do my hair...
all I had to do is comb it back smoothly...
place the 'crown' on
and  twist and tuck my hair into the back of the crown
for a finished look.
Making this headpiece a perfect solve for   quick summer hair.
Making it also a perfect go to piece...
after the pool or beach.

With such a statement headpiece...
I was intent on pairing this beauty with some
simple pieces  with clean lines
to achieve the balance of stylish Southern California ease
  I was looking for.

I chose wide legged linen pants from Anthropologie
a drapey knit top by Rachel Zoe

 to really ground the outfit...
I paired these with my Tory Burch blazer
and a flat gilded sandal...

and of course..,
my rattan antique bag...
that has become my summer evening staple.

I just love my new crown so  much...
I want to share just how easy it is to make your own...
so there is a
crown DIY here.

as always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life


  1. I'm a great fan of anything made with flowers (I even had a crush on the flower hat worn by Elizabeth Taylor in "The Mirror cracked") but your crown is especially fresh and soft. Lovely on you too !

What a perfect modern version of a floral headpiece. The outfit of choice is also perfection to the T. My hands are just itching to get started on one of these, although I will add, it would be so much more enjoyable to be able to create with you by my side.
