March 20 marks the first day of spring, but with the dropping temperatures and the anticipation of snow in New York City, it hardly feels that way to me. Thanks to Beyonce's new photo Blue Ivy, however, I didn't need to look any further than my Facebook feed for springtime, flower crown inspo. Standing in a sun-drenched room with pale pink curtains outfitting the windows behind her (and tiny, seemingly Photoshopped bunnies positioned in her midst), Blue Ivy looks ready for spring in a pink frock and an enormous flower crown. Besides the image of cutie pie Blue inducing all kinds of nostalgic feels for me regarding my childhood, it definitely served as a reminder that flower crowns still exist and still look adorable.
I wore flower crowns throughout high school when the look was first starting to become known as the hipster, Coachella-esque thing to do, but eventually growing bored of it. That said, this angelic image of Blue Ivy is proof that floral crowns are the perfect look to embrace the changing seasons in. What better excuse is there to rock flower crowns than the coming of springtime, or tulips and daisies for Easter? My advice is to take this opportunity to try out larger, more statement-making headpieces like Blue Ivy's. Clearly, they're still very in.
If you want to get on board with this fresh and colorful trend, take a look at some of the sweet flower crowns currently on the market.
