My Style: A La Plage… To The Beach*

The other week we popped along to one of my favourite beaches, which is actually a quarry made into an adventure beach, and it’s really quite fun! I wanted to take some snaps of a summery outfit I popped together featuring a few new pieces to my wardrobe, and I hope you like this My Style post as much as I do! A la plage…. 

What do you like to wear to the beach? Let me know in the comments…my style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pommy style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pommy style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pommy style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pomWhat I Wore: Blue Daisy Kimono £18.00 – Now £12.00 (Kylie – M&Co.)*, Striped Top (St. James), Denim Shorts (Jumble Sale), Leopard Converse Hi-Tops €19.99 (Footlocker) & Pom Pom Headband £3.50 (ASOS)

Going to the beach for me is one of the hardest places to dress for. You don’t want to wear too much, or too little, but then you also don’t want to dress completely different to how you usually do… so for this trip, I went for casual, bright and of course a clash of prints. My shorts and top are both comfortable and practical for slipping in and out off, and my new kimono (finally!) is the best cover up, ever. I’m not really sure how this outfit works so well, but it just kinda’ does. I think just putting touches of each colour here and there will make it all tie in, even if the prints are all completely different and a little bit bold.

The print is awesome, and it’s the perfect flowy-ness. It’s a lot better quality than I would have thought, and seems pretty versatile even with the bold daisy print. My floral/random crown collection featured this little pom-pom number and the yellow perfectly matches my beautiful new shoes…

The massive sale was on, and I happened to notice a pair of bright yellow leopard print Converses on the side… expecting them to still be over €30 or €40, I was absolutely stunned to see ‘€19.99 from €74.99′ (less than £16) on the price tag. Mama Posh kindly treated me to them and I am so happy! My first ever pair of Converse, and boy they are gorgeous! Although they are bright, the yellow is the perfect mustard shade which means they are a touch more versatile… what do you think?!

So there we have it! I hope you liked this post as much as I did writing it :) Just to leave you on an exciting note… one of my upcoming posts *fingers crossed* will be an exciting announcement :D I’m literally buzzing just thinking of it! Eeee!

Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

Fast Food Fashion – What’s On The Menu?

After a few recent purchases, I have realised that I have a thing for fast food fashion… whether it’s socks, necklaces, badges, the whole lot, it is definitely a trend I’m loving. I decided to put together a little blog post so you can see what is currently ‘on the menu’. I even purchased some props to make this post even more snazzy! I really hope you enjoy :)

fast food fashion, food inspired fashion fast food fashion, food inspired fashionMAIN COURSE – BURGER SOCKS £1.00 (KYLIE – M&CO.)* – FAST FOOD SOCKS £3.00 (ASOS)

The first plate is of course, some burgers… in the form of two pairs of socks, at super cheap prices… cheap as chips (ha.. ha..)! The first pair are from M&Co, and look super juicy and kitsch. I think they would look awesome with nautical stripes and some cute flats. For those of you who want a more subtle fast food option, these socks from the ASOS Menswear range might be for you! A more robust pair of socks with a retro style cartoon print… I’ve styled this with denim dungarees and they look awesome. I love the yellow and red… *sassy click of fingers* primary perfection. 

fast food fashion, food inspired fashion fast food fashion, food inspired fashionON THE SIDE – CHIP SOCKS £1.00 (KYLIE – M&CO.)* – CHIP NECKLACE £12.00 (CHELSEA DOLL)*

You can’t have a burger without a classic side of fries/chips and a good dose of ketchup, so these two pieces are perfect. I think if you were to wear one of the chip socks with one of the burger socks, you would look awesome. This necklace is definitely a favourite of mine as it’s really bold and bright, yet simple all in one. Chelsea Doll have a whole range of #JunkFood accessories, so if you like the look of this one, you’ll love the rest!

fast food fashion, food inspired fashion fast food fashion, food inspired fashion*CHEERS* DRINKS – JUNK NECKLACE £18.00 (PUNKY PINS)*

Ahh yes, a use for my Jean Paul Gaultier Coca-Cola can! Obviously a meal wouldn’t be complete without drinks, and for me it’s always got to be a good ol’ Coca-Cola… like I mentioned in my interview for the Mooi En Lief lifestyle magazine *wink wink* This necklace is crazy though, it has burgers, cereal boxes, toothpaste tubes, you name it, it’s on it! I love it nonetheless, and if you want to see how I would style it, click here.

fast food fashion, food inspired fashion fast food fashion, food inspired fashionDESSERT – CANDY GLITTER DREAMS NECKLACE £15.00 (I LOVE CRAFTY)

There’s always room for dessert, isn’t there? Well, today I have a beauty… a glittery donut shaped beauty! I decided to treat myself to a piece from the new I Love Crafty Donut Shop collection, and I’m so glad I did! It’s stunning. From the gorgeous sparkles, to the gold little gem, every detail makes it special. Laura sprinkles them with goodness and love, as it arrived in a gorgeous packaging which I shall keep it nice and new in. I honestly cannot wait to style this! Yum!

fast food fashion, food inspired fashionAnd there we have it folks! Lots of foody goodness! Let me know in the comments which is your favourite piece? I think mine is either the donut or the chips necklace… they’re both so cool! Next on my list is a Coca-Cola themed piece from Ashish… a girl can dream… a girl can dream…! Have you seen any food related items that I might like? Leave a comment below :)

A Summer Night In: Create, Read, Wear & Listen*

Well hello there again. Today I have a post which has been waiting to be made up for so long, and it’s finally here! One day I had a random idea to do a sort of Girls Night In post, where I give you ideas of things to do, or to read etc… but it’s ended being more of a ‘favourites’ post in a slightly different style, but I like it! I’m going to show you some of my fave brands, products etc all in one awesome ‘Summer Night In’ post! I hope it inspires you to just sit back, relax and have a selfish night all to yourself…

summer night in teen holiday books fashion music summer night in teen holiday books fashion music summer night in teen holiday books fashion music summer night in teen holiday books fashion musicsummer night in teen holiday books fashion musicTO LISTEN: FLORAL KNOCKOUT HEADPHONES (SKULLCANDY WOMEN’S COLLECTION)* // TO PLAY: LONDON GRAMMAR – IF YOU WAIT

One of the best ways to tune out, is to tune in to your favourite music. I’ve been absolutely obsessed with London Grammar‘s latest album ‘If You Wait‘. It’s beautiful, powerful and deep all in one… and it sounds even better when I use my new Skullcandy Knockouts. They are honestly, GORGEOUS! I didn’t think I would like the tan leather, but I was so so wrong about it! I adore them so very much! The first time I saw a pair of Skullcandy headphones was on the bus to school when I was around 6, and have always admired them, so to finally own my very own pair, which are utterly gorgeous, makes me sooo happy! I love the little touches, from the floral case to the embossed ‘Land On Your Feet’ on the headband. Love, love love!

summer night in teen holiday books fashion musicTO WEAR: PJ TOP (ZARA KIDS) // PJ TROUSERS (THE WHITE COMPANY)

Then of course we need to be looking fine and dandy, and that means getting into my favourite piece of attire… PJs! I absolutely love this combo! Both are 2nd hand actually, but they are still so comfortable and look as good as new! Super duper cute, heh? I love the sparkles too… they make the top that little bit more fun and enjoyable to wear!

I don’t think a nice relaxing evening would be complete without a bit of beauty, so of course it had to be included! Catseye London just released a new range of wash bags, and I must say that I am impressed! The size is perfect for fitting everything you need in, it’s wipe cleanable and it even has a pocket inside… perfect for such products as my Clarin’s Lotus Face Oil! I have been using this in my skincare ‘routine’ (which consists of three products mind you…) and I have to say it’s been working a treat! Who knew an oil could help oily skin?! As a relaxing night should be about indulgence, the Burt’s Bee’s set I have is perfect! I’ve used all 3 of the body products and it feels like you are in a spa. SO relaxing!

summer night in teen holiday books fashion music summer night in teen holiday books fashion musicTO DO: STAEDTLER FINE LINER & FIBRE TIP PENS* // FASHION EXCERSIZE BOOK*

For Christmas about four years ago I got this awesome colouring book, and I never really got into it that much… I sort of rushed it a bit and it ended up not being the best it could have been, so when a similar version became mine I was delighted! It might seem weird to like a colouring book, but I promise you it is more than that! I see it as more of a source of inspiration and something to do to pass the time. Plus, this one doesn’t seem to let ink seep through which is a bonus. Add on top of that some gorgeous pens (perfect for designing!), I’m pretty happy! Listening to music whilst doing something like this really does get your creative juices flowing, I even did a doodle on the ‘Tyson Triplus‘ Tumblr blog, see it here

summer night in teen holiday books fashion musicsummer night in teen holiday books fashion musicTO READ: GEEK GIRL PICTURE PERFECT BY HOLLY SMALE* – MISS JOJANGLES BLOG

When you want to zone out completely, or fall asleep as I like to call it, then a good book always does the trick, and Picture Perfect is definitely a good book! It’s witty, the characters are great, it makes you feel sad and happy all in one. A really really nice read and I can’t wait for the fourth book to be released! It’s also very relatable to me, especially Harriet’s character, I couldn’t really say a bad word about it! Highly recommend giving the whole series a read to any of you fellow youngsters/teens :) I also highly recommend Miss Jojangles to anybody and anyone. Jojo has been the nicest of people on the interwebs recently and has really made me feel proud of my little blog. Just like Geek Girl, her blog is whitty and happy. Jojo makes knitting, tambourine playing and aubergines look cool, what more could you want?!

Speak soon my chums! I hope you enjoyed this post, if you did, make sure you follow me on BlogLovin’ for more!

ASOS Saved Items Wishlist #2

Hello there young chum! Today I have my second ASOS Saved Items wishlist! Sorry there was a delay with this post but I was very busy, so I’ve thrown in another 2 items for you! You lucky duckies! (What was in my list last time? See here.)

What’s in your ASOS Saved Items wishlist currently? Let me know in the comments!

asos saved items wishlist PINEAPPLE BAG // NIKE BAG

Pineapple Bag: I’m having a bit of a fruit ‘thing’ at the moment. I have a lemon clutch, some fruity false nails, and I now really want this bag! It’s so darn cute! I’m stopping myself from buyin SOLD OUT! Booo! I waited and then… it’s gone! That’s the trouble with pre-writing posts….

Nike Bag: Not sure why I like this, but I do! I think it’s just the colour and the ditsy print. I think drawstring bags are a bit of a love it or hate it piece, but it’s in my Saved Items so it has to be shared! What do you think? Yay or nay?

asos saved items wishlist NAIL DECALS // NIKE TRAINERS

Nail Decals: I’m also having a bit of a fast food ‘thing’, seeing as I have fast food socks and a french fries necklace… so obviously I need these too! They’re adorable though, right? Again, if these go to like £3.00, they will be mine. They will totally complete the awesome outfit I have in my head… think nautical stripes, denim and fast food… yum burgerrrr… speaking of burgers, have you seen Carrie from WishWishWish’s engagement ring box?! SO. CUTE. Congrats Carrie! 

Nike Trainers: Okay, I basically now need £100 to get these in my life. They are AMAZING. My House of Holland snapback would be absolutely perfect with these. The colours are 100% identical and just ooooh, purrrrty. Let’s just all hope these also go down in price by like… 70%…?!

asos saved items wishlist PINEAPPLE SKIRT // SWEET SOCKS

Pineapple Skirt: I told you I was having a fruit ‘thing’! Look at this skirt though, it’s awesome :D I love the pink too, and the length and the style… I am so tempted…. maybe… maybe I shall purchase. I’m thinking it would look nice with a little crop top and a nice baggy cover up, or perhaps a kimono… oh yeah, I’m still on the hunt for a kimono! I can’t find any for under £15… :( Booo!

Sweet Socks: These are cute, heh? Sweets all in pastel colours, on socks! The only problem is I have no shoes which would match that well as my black jelly sandals are getting too small! Darn you feet for deciding to grow even bigger… soon I’ll be size 7 and even some of Mama Posh’s shoes won’t fit me! Gahhh!

asos saved items wishlist NECKLACE // SEQUIN BAG

Necklace: I love dainty necklaces, and this one is even more awesome than most because 1. It’s super duper dirt cheap and 2. It’s LONG. How I have wanted a long necklace for so long (haaa…. haaaa), and finally I have found one! I just think wearing it with nice dresses would add a sort of bohemian, summery vibe. I won’t be buying it though because I just spent a little bit (more than usual) on the Candy Glitter Dreams Necklace from ILoveCrafty… oops!

Sequin Bag: Another drawstring… oops! The only reason this is here is because it’s similar to the Ashish bags… sort of. I feel like this somehow looks more sporty than the Nike one, so I don’t think I will actually be buying it… I just thought the sparkles were cool.

asos saved items wishlist MESH COVER-UP // FRUIT PRINT WATCH

Cover-Up: The first post had a cover-up, and so does the 2nd! I prefer this one though as I could probably work it as a normal dress (obviously with stuff underneath). I like the pastel colour too, and I’m a big fan of texture so it’s a win win… other than the £22 price tag which I don’t think I could stretch too just for this… would you?

Fruit Print Watch: Another fruit related item, Tolly, stop! I don’t really wear watches so again, this will probably sit in my Saved Items for no reason, but I love the colours and the sort of digital fruit print. It’s been in the sale twice now… it’s teasing me. Maybe I’ll treat myself to it when it’s really discounted… like most of these items really *empties pockets and nothing falls out*

Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

Floral & Random Hair Crown Collection + Video

If you haven’t been following this blog for very long, or maybe you just haven’t been paying attention (rude… jokes!), then you may not know that I am a floral (and random) hair crown, addict. I buy and make way too many… I probably have a fairly small ‘hair crown collection compared to some, but it’s slowly getting bigger month by month… so today I’m here to show you every one I own… 

Do you have any floral crowns? Let me know in the comments!
floral and random hair crown collection beauxoxo accessories diy asos claire'sfloral and random hair crown collection beauxoxo accessories diy asos claire's…maybe that’s a lie because I did receive 2 new ones in the post recently (thank you Claire’s!), but this is the majority. I even made a short and snazzy video (this features all of my collection) to go along with them, aww! I have stretchy, alice band, DIY and pom pom ones so it really is a huge variety! I love them all though, I especially loves the ones I make myself because they are 100% unique to me :) I just think hair accessories can really complete an outfit, especially if it is fairly simple. Plus… on hot days when you’re hair isn’t exactly ‘clean’ they can be the best distraction!

FYI, both the DIY ones are made with false flowers, a hot glue gun and a hair band! So simple to do, it’s just common sense :)

floral and random hair crown collection beauxoxo accessories diy asos claire'sDIY FLORAL CROWN – £2 – FLOWERS (CHARITY SHOP) & ALICE BAND (GIFI)

This is one of my most recent ones to my collection, and it’s made by moi! I really like it because the flowers are super oversized, and make a pretty cool statement! I added in some greenery I had left over from another floral crown (scroll down…) and I love it! I feel like it is very Frida Khalo-esque and goes with a lot more than you would expect, plus for £2, you can’t really go wrong!

floral and random hair crown collection beauxoxo accessories diy asos claire'sPOM POM HEADBAND – £3.00 – ASOS

I saw this on ASOS ages and ages ago, it went from £10 to about £8, and then when it finally reached £3 very recently, I decided it was about time it became mine! It’s actually a lot smaller than I had anticipated, but I love it nonetheless. The pom poms are so cute and fluffy and actually look quite retro, so I’m excited to style it up! You could easily DIY this one, but because it was on the site for so long, the price was justifiable in the end!

floral and random hair crown collection beauxoxo accessories diy asos claire'sPURPLE OVERSIZED GARLAND – CLAIRE’S*

Claire’s surprised me with a package a while back and inside it was this! I never thought I would like a crown like this because it has a wire band which I tend to stay clear of, but I’m coming around to the idea! I have to say it’s a little awkward to wear, but the colour looks really nice and it should be good for all year round, which is a plus! I think this would look awesome on blonde hair… what do you think?

floral and random hair crown collection beauxoxo accessories diy asos claire'sDIY FLORAL CROWN – FLOWERS (MARKET) & HAIR BAND (..STOLEN FROM MAMA POSH…)

Another DIY, and probably my most favourite of my collection, is this beauty! I just adore the way it looks! I found the flowers at a market and I have been trying to hunt down the same guy again, but no luck! I think buying false flowers online can be way more expensive, so if you can find a local florist who sells them, then you should definitely get them from there! Also, make sure you get some greenery too, it adds a more realistic touch rather than just a bunch of flowers all in the same colour, I think that’s why this is my favourite!

I hope you liked this post and the pictures… it was so funny doing them haha! Sorry if I don’t update my blog lots and lots over the next few weeks, it’s holiday time now with our family so obviously I’m spending time with them! Thanks so much guys! :)

Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

My Style: Wearing Pink On A Wednesday*

Sorry for the very un-original title of this My Style post, but it’s Wednesday and I’m wearing pink so, it was kind of obligatory… duh. I like this outfit and I hope you do too :) Sorry about the weird blue glow… darn you white balance!  Make sure to leave a comment telling me how you would wear pink on a Wednesday!

pink 12my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirtspink 1my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirtsWhat I Wore: No Photos Please T-Shirt £14.99 (Lush T-Shirts)*, Pink Dress (Marks & Spencer), Denim Shorts (Jumble Sale), Barbie Socks £2.50 (Primark), Jelly Shoes (Supermarket) & Floral Ear Headband £3.50 (River Island at ASOS)

I never knew I was a pink kinda’ person, but turns out, I really am. I had to wear my pink taffeta dress because I own no pink skirts… very tempted to make it into a skirt actually, seeing as it’s about 7 years old - no. joke. I love the contrast of the pastel and bright pink though, and the slogan top makes such an awesome statement. Plus, it’s kinda’ ironic, seeing as I’m a fashion blogger and all… lol.  What d’ya think? Too much pink, or just right? I’m thinking the latter, but not sure the French around here would agree.. I changed the dress for some trousers when I went out *hides behind curtains*

my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirts my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirts my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirtsWhen I was in the UK recently, I tried on this super cute headband in River Island, knowing that it was also on ASOS, so when I saw it for half the price in the ASOS sale, I bought it immediately. It’s adorable! I thought I would prefer the multi-coloured one, but I’m so glad I picked the pink! I also love the gold band… it makes it look a lot more expensive than it was! It’s also a great headband which can be worn with a topknot as it’s just small enough, which is very handy in these warmer months! Oh and FYI, the pool is up and running, and most days I take a dip! Fun, fun, fun!

my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirts my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirtsAs I mentioned earlier, this dress is kinda’ on the small side which means my denim shorts have to be worn underneath! I’m a big fan of denim at the moment, and these are again… adorable! I love the little trim and how it pokes out underneath the skirt… cute-ness! Speaking of denim… I really want a denim/acid-wash style drop arm vest with a high neck… anyone know of where to get one? Thanks if you do suggest anywhere!

my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirtsAnd finally… shoes! I wore my new Barbie socks (featured in my new haul, watch it here!with my jelly shoes, and I quite like the combo! Due to Primark’s bad packaging, when I pulled the label off the socks, it pulled a thread with it meaning there is now a hole on the bottom. Not very nice! I like them nonetheless though, and it just adds that little bit more pink to the outfit!

I shall speak to you soon! I have some exciting things in the pipeline, which I should be able to tell you about soon! The only hint I can give is that it will be the 2nd time in which one of my goals for 2014 will be coming true! Eeep! :) Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx
