Photo Friday: Flowers in my hair

You guys might remember this post from right before I went to India. I was debating on getting/making a few flowers for my hair to go with the sari's I was going to wear....I never got around to sharing with you what the final decisions were because that week was crazy but now I have some pictures to share! (I felt a little silly asking people to take pictures of the back of my head so I had to wait till other people sent me theirs and hope the caught my flowers!)

Day 1:
I wore this green and pink chania choli one of my absolute favorite outfits!

I tied my hair in a pony tail leaving some front pieces out. I used those fun pieces to create twisties that I pinned in place and then used the rest of the hair to wrap around my ponytail. I wore a green flower attached next to the ponytail.

The flower is from Target but I couldn't find a link to it...It's very similar to this one from Forever 21 but it didn't have a ponytail holder on it.

Day 2:
This gorgeous Blue and Silver sari for wedding number 1 where we danced in the streets :) SO Much fun! (Somehow my mom, grandmother, aunt, and I all ended up wearing blue)

I just pinned back my hair on one side and attached the flower, which was blue rose with a blue glitter on the edges of it. This was from Claire's and again no link :(

Day 4:
Wedding number two...I LOVE this sari and this picture totally doesn't do it justice.
My mom and I took a little creative liberty on this one and we picked out a flower from Micheals that worked, her floral department manager glued it to a hair pin for me and some shimmer gold mist on it, I was a little worried because this was a bigger flower but I think it looked fun! (I gave away my blue flower to this sweet little girl who was a permanent attachment to me from Day 1 I think she looks much cuter in it!)


I also had a peacock feather which was really pretty but I didn't get a picture of that one! Happy Friday to everyone :)

I'm so jealous that you can do so much fun stuff with your hair! I have an afro, regardless of the weather :P

I loveee the blue Saree!

I have a saree really similar to the third one, except mine is maroon.
