Headscarves and Blazers

Scarf: Somewhere in Paris, Blazer: H&M, Shirt: Thrifted, Belt: Target, Jeans: gifted, Shoes: Fourstar, Bag: C&A

I showed up to work wearing this head scarf (bad hair day = headscarf) and the two girls I watch, ages 8 and 11, immediately ran to fetch their own scarves and demanded I wrap their own heads up the same way. All three of us walked around town that day wearing matching headscarves, and I'm pretty sure people thought we were a little strange.

But we had fun, and that's what matters.

------------------

On an unrelated note, I am looking at getting this blog a private domain name but I'm having a little decision anxiety.  It seems simple enough to choose rootswingsandotherthings.com, but it seems a little too long to me. I am thinking about eliminating the "roots" for the domain name to shorten it.

Which do you like better?

rootswingsandotherthings.com

or

wingsandotherthings.com

or something else?

NEED. YOUR. OPINIONS.

Ummm seriously!? Favorite outfit of my LIFE. I need to recreate this. I love headscarves - they are the best :)

I like both domain names. rootswingsandotherthings isn't too long for me, but wingsandotherthings is shorter and it still matches your blog. Maybe the latter?

I think shorter is probably always better in general for people to remember..I love your head scarf and the proportions of your outfit are perfect!

I remember the roots and wings part of your blog title than the "other things" part, so I like the longer domain name.

jackie said...

It always annoys me when the domain name is different than the blog name, so I say unless you're planning in changing that, just keep it the long one :)

Lauren said...

Love this look. Your hair looks fantastic - the scarf and the bun!

And I, personally, like rootswingsandotherthings.com because it matches your blog name. Plus, the "roots" probably has some meaning? It isn't too long to me, and it's easy to remember because it's your blog name. You could always make the "and" an "&" to shorten it a bit?

Mimi Finerty said...

Love that scarf. I tried this look once but I totally dont suit scarves on my head - I did not look as cool as you for sure.

wingsandotherthings.com has a really nice ring to it by the way!

The scarf like that really scares me, but you really pulled this look off. I love that the two girls you watch wanted in on the action too. I bet you were adorable! Great blazer too :) Heather

Aw, on the top I was like, 'its a 40s Rosie the Riveter outfit!' and then I saw the full length and went, 'oh, jeans! cute!' :)

I like the full name for your domain name. It isn't too long.

Kristen said...

I always refer to you as "Roots and Wings" to my husband. Easier to remember the first then the last.

Alex Butts said...

I totally get your domain dilemma - I thought ifsandsandbutts.com seemed sooo long but now it really doesn't bother me. Maybe another option would be sticking with your blogspot and going for thoserootsandwings.com? still almost as long though haha

I really don't like "rootswingsandotherthings.com"

I read it as "root, swing, sand and other things" lol~ soooo long.


Roots and wings is good.

Stesha said...

i am obsessed with your look and you in general!!! aborb!

kayleigh maryon said...

Love your outfit. I don't think I could ever pull off the head scarf though.
Wingsandotherthings sounds good. You could always keep the full name on your actual blog page as well.
Cheers,
