Hair Accessory - River Island 

This skirt is one of my favourite recent purchases, and one that will be sticking in my wardrobe for a long time. It's really soft, a gorgeous colour, and I adore the scallop detailing on the hem! The only issue is that it creases immediately because it's made of linen, but that doesn't bother me too much. I'm probably going to buy a few of the other colours.. I can't help it.

I'm still unsure as to whether I've  mastered the topknot but I gave it a good go today. My hair is really long and fine so I sometimes find it tricky to gather it all up and make it look messy at the same time. I bought this flower hair accessory from River Island last year but here is a beautiful similar one. It's perfect for making topknots look a little more dressed up, especially in the summer. 

I really recommend Matalan if you want nice, inexpensive jewellery. Whenever I go into the store it's the first section I head for. I often find incredibly similar necklaces, rings and ear-rings that I've bought in Topshop or Miss Selfridge but in Matalan they're at least £4 cheaper. It's definitely worth having a look round if you have a store near you. The rings are selection of random places, so if there's one you like I'll let you know where it's from!

Hope you're all enjoying your weekends! I'm off to a BBQ/party for the world cup final tomorrow which is exciting! Who do you think will win?
