True colours.

february-28-1-of-1

Most images in my February posts were pretty bleak-looking in terms of the colour palette, so I’ll finish off the month with something brighter in honour of a very vibrant little girl.

These hair elastics are labelled as “ouchless” on the package (not entirely true). They stretch and snap after a while, but we find they hold pigtails like nobody’s business. They’re slick and bright and shiny, which not only pleased my flashy first-grader but also inspired this photo for Narami’s weekly feature, Tuesdays of Texture.

When we got home from the store with the new package of elastics, my daughter picked out all the black ones and all the white ones and gave them to me. “You can have the plain ones,” she generously offered. She already has a good grasp of her mother’s neutral style. Her own style, she refers to as “fancy” (pronounced with an English accent). Aptly, she calls mine “not fancy” (but without the accent).

Though she loves them all, she likes the orange elastics best.

Shine on, girl, shine on.

  1. Are those tiny? Little J uses these in tiny size – they certainly include the ouch, but nothing else will hold that hair longer than 30 mins, so we negotiate. They have become a one-time-use item for us, though. She will take them off when it’s nap time in school.
    I love your girl’s sense of style, she sure knows how to let her heart shine through.
    Thanks for sharing your post! Have a great weekend.
