I'm definitely feeling the oversized headwraps that was seen during the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 show. I love that this trend is an extension of the turban trend from the winter, but has a lighter take on it with chiffon, jersey or silk fabrics. During the Marc by Marc Jacobs show Marc Jacobs overlaid scarves with his head wrap turban. I love that it played with colors and even made it look wider. This trend is great for the ladies that dye their hair, it'll definitely keep your hair protected from the sun, and for those of use with bangs. If we so choose we can pull our bangs back and hide them under the turban allow us to get an even tan on our face. The best thing about this trend is that you don't necessarily have to run out and buy headwraps. You can take your favorite scarf and tie it around. Keiko Lynn did a little tutorial way back  that you can check out here.

Sunday was a beautiful day in the city and the fiance and I took total advantage of it by heading down to the Brooklyn Bridge Park. I wore my favorite hippy pants and to match I pulled out my scarf to tie around my hair.
