Remember when I told my Pottermore registration story? Well, I’ve been in for about three weeks now, and am officially a proud Hufflepuff! As a lifelong assumed Ravenclaw, I had a moment or two of “um, excuse me, what?” after my sorting. But after reading the welcome message (which described my personality to a T), and with the knowledge that Tonks and JK Rowling herself are fellow housemates, I’m obnoxiously full of badger pride. Hufflepuff isn’t a house full of pushovers; we live peacefully until we’re attacked, and “cross us at your peril.” We know we’re awesome, and that’s enough — we don’t have to brag about it. And I’m quite flattered to be called patient, hard-working, and loyal!
Being so excited about my house has led me to a problem: my wardrobe is extremely lacking in yellow. So today I went searching for some cute (and cheap) ways to wear my House color. Here are some of my favorites.
Jewelry – Style Watches Square Rubber Watch, $24.00 from National Jean Co.
This watch is super cute, and would be a really fun pop of color to any neutral outfit.
Leather Cord Peace Bracelet, $15.00 from Max & Chloe
Everyone knows Hufflepuff is the most peaceful house! This bracelet lets me be a proud ‘puff and showcase my inner hippie.
7 Hills Skinny Leather Flower Belt, $13.97 from Piperlime
A skinny belt is a wardrobe staple, so why not make a statement with it? The mustard yellow is a bit more muted than the lemony shades, making it work appropriate, but the flowers add a fun and feminine touch.
Houndstooth Square Shawl, 14 Yellow and Black, $29.99 from Amazon
Not only is this scarf/shawl/whatever you want to call it cute, but it’s both of Hufflepuff’s colors to boot. Miami isn’t the best place for scarves, but this would be perfect for a chilly winter day.
Grapefruit Yellow Crochet Beanie, from Amazon
Again, maybe not the best for Miami, but I’m a northerner at heart! The button accents are adorable, and the slouchy beanie looks so nice and warm… just like Hufflepuff.
What do you think of my choices? Are there any Ravenclaws, Slytherins, and Gryffindors that would want me to do this for your houses as well?
