you don't have to say what's on your mind

dip-dye tee: H&M
velvet skirt: River Island (similar to this one)
gold 'love' bracelet: Topshop
flower crown: DIY
black Chelsea boots: vintage

I finally have a flower crown to call my own! While I'm pretty sure I'm going to ask my nan and granddad for this one from Rock 'n' Rose for Christmas, I just couldn't wait any longer to get my hands on one. I was actually inspired by my colleague Helen's do-it-yourself flower crown tutorial (her YouTube channel is insanely good - check out the DIY here) so made a trip to Hobbycraft yesterday with the boyfriend. He actually ended up making it for me too - what a catch.

And while I'm still on the hunt for the perfect pleated leather skirt, this velvet one from River Island called out to me in the meantime. I don't know why it's not on the website but I've linked the skirt that was next to it in-store.

Don't forget to check out Helen's YouTube channel if you fancy making yourself a flower crown - it's easy peasy lemon squeezy.
