Yup, I just bought a pack of scrunchies (again)
I was at a friend’s house with a few other families about a month ago, and the mommies got a lesson about VSCO girls. As the mom of a boy, our universe is definitely more about Fortnite than Hydroflasks, and although I’ve definitely noticed the fashion aesthetic the tweens and teens are going for these days, I never knew that Brandy Melville is basically the 2019 version of Benetton in 1989. (BTW, if you ever wore Colors by Benetton perfume, this is a perfect modern-day dupe.) I’m actually proud of myself (and my mom posse) for being in the know—and last week I dipped my toe in the VSCO girl water by purchasing a pack of scrunchies.
I got a pack similar to this one because the colors are pretty basic, and they are so much more gentle on my hair than elastics. The manage to keep my hair back during Pilates—without making dents if I’ve blown my hair straight—and yep, I can wear one around my wrist in case I decide to zip around town with the top down.
My son actually noticed my new hair accessory, and I’m pretty sure there was an eye-roll involved. When I think about my friends who have pre-teen girls, Fortnite doesn’t look so bad after all. (Good luck with that, ladies!)
