A Beautiful Gold Leaf Hair Accessory for the Bride

Happy Sunday-That-Feels-Like-Saturday-Because-of-Labor-Day-Weekend! Emma here and, I have to say, what’s better than a four-day weekend? Especially one that ends with the arrival of a brand new season, pumpkin flavored coffee, and the emergence of boot weather, not to mention cider mills and Halloween and all the fun that comes with it. Anyway, I wanted to pop in to share this gold leaf hair accessory we spotted over at Lottie-Da Designs. It is a beautiful hair piece for the fall wedding season and features delicate gold leafs for a bohemian inspired look. It’s perfect for a bride who wants to skip the veil… but can also be worn with one, too. This particular piece is named Augustina and it is available in different styles so you can create your own unique look. Read on to see the hair accessory and be sure to check out the hairstyle for inspiration, too. It’s gorgeous.
