My Style: Public Outfit Display of Affection*

By March 6, 2016 My Style

The reason this outfit is having a public display of affection is because this is probably the most public My Style outfit shoot I’ve ever done. There were people looking for sure which definitely makes you feel a little weird but what can I say? This is the time of the internet, you should know the drill by now! I also just really love this outfit at the moment so it should have some affection, right? I hope you like it too!

I think this outfit sums up a lot of what I’ve been wearing recently. I am obsessed with blouses (I now own six – four long sleeve, two short sleeved) and they’re perfect for this time of the year where we’re not really sure what’s going on. It really messes with your mind because you think “Ooh, it looks lovely and warm and sunny today” and then you walk outside and regret your outfit choice immediately.

That means layering is a go to option, especially with sweatshirts and jumpers, which I also have a growing collection of. I especially love this one which I’ve had for a couple of years now (which you can probably work out due to the very scraggy loose threads around the arms) and it’s still going strong. It works perfectly with every style… grunge, minimalist, khaki seventies etc… it’s a very versatile piece, surprisingly!

In terms of the trousers, well let’s just say…. I AM IN LOVE. They’re very Valentino inspired, and although I don’t usually gravitate towards knock-offs, I absolutely loved these and I couldn’t resist them when they went into the sale. They’re so gorgeous and the style fits like a glove. I can also imagine wearing them on a summer evening so I’m sure they’ll work perfectly throughout the year.

To complete everything, I usually leave my blouse hanging loose for that kind of casual vibe (it also gives me an excuse for skipping out on ironing…). My hat ties in the black from the jumper, where the navy of the trousers clash and my shoes are just doing their usual awesome thing. Honestly, I only wear these and my Dr Martens. You don’t see me in any other shoes at all… no. joke.

To finish off this post, here’s a little sneak peek of what I’ve been listening to recently. I’ve enjoyed adding these little elements to my posts so far this year and I hope you have been too! I love the “Little Giants” album by Roo Panes. Super relaxing but still some nice sing-a-long tunes too. “Because love’s a journey of a lifetime… and where you finish isn’t where you start…”

My Style: Woodland Bohemian Dreaming*

By January 24, 2016 My Style

So let’s start off by saying that this outfit probably seems quite different to the sorts of styles I featured in my aesthetics post… yes, it is quite different but firstly, it’s still rather retro with the seventies bohemian edge, but secondly, currently, this style is sort of the opposite side of the coin. It’s simple, with very little to it, but the print and style of the dress make-up for the lack of texture etc. You’ll see… you’ll see!

I’d had my eye on this dress for a while, so when it dropped down to a more reasonable price (for a teen), I knew I had to pick it up. As you’ve probably gathered from my previous outfit posts, I’m not really a huge dress wearer, so it’s quite unusual to see me so in awe of one… so this one of those rare occasions for sure!

It’s slightly brighter than on the website, but I don’t mind that because it’s blue, and I wear a lot of blue. Although the print is gorgeous, I can’t get over the fit and loose style. It’s going to be perfect for all year round… I mean, you could 100% pull of this look in summer time… maybe swap out the DMs (unless you’re feeling brave… your feet may boil) for some sandals and take off those cheeky little skin-coloured tights.

It’s a grown-up dress too… because I don’t own many dresses, it’s nice to pick out ones which are slightly more mature and real staples that I know I’ll have in my wardrobe for a long time. Ugh, I just love it. The splits too… I love a nice split!

I can’t talk about anything else than this dress. It’s just not possible…. so I’ll talk about a different aspect just in case you’re interested. Yes, it’s made in India. But actually, this is one of the very few non-ethical/sustainable purchases I’ve made in quite some time. I picked up some trousers from Mötivi which were made in Italy (I was very happy when I found this out), and a jumper from Pull & Bear which was made in Portugal, and most of my other new additions to my wardrobe have either been gifts or second-hand.

I’m pretty chuffed, and as I’ve mentioned in previously, I personally think it’s more about quantity over completely changing your shopping habits. Take small steps, and you’ll get there.

  NOW PLAYING: I. flight of the navigator (Childish Gambino) 🎶


Of course I can’t forget to mention these shoes though. I officially have three pairs of Dr Martens in my collection (four if you count the pair that don’t fit me anymore, on my display shelf) and I couldn’t be more happy about this addition. I’ve had my eye on this pair for a while (I tried them on in a shop a while ago and they fit like a glove) as well as the classic cherry red DMs which the Italians seem to love, but I think I’ll wait a little while until adding them.

This pair are the the 1B99’s which have 14 eyelets and hit me about mid calf/mid shin. I was tempted by the knee-high DMs, but surprisingly these are actually a lot higher than just the usual 6/8 eyelet boots. For those of you who stay away from higher boots due to being thin, I really wouldn’t worry about these as although they have a little gap on me (mind you I am super small), they fit perfectly without any problems.

Overall I love them and they match my dress just as I had imagined (I basically bought this dress just to pair them up), and I can’t wait to style them up with shorts in the warmer months. I would 100% recommend them if you’re a Dr Martens fan and are looking to add a different style/shape to your selection.

My Style: Back To School with Dr Martens*

By September 16, 2015 My Style

So… to give you a break from all the Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh craziness, I’ve decided to treat you with an OOTD/chatty post about all things Dr Martens, because what could be better than that? Okay, well actually my socks do make an appearance in this post but they look pretty awesome in my opinion. So without further-a-do, let’s get back to school with Dr Martens!

WHAT I WORE: Long Sleeve Top (ZARA Kids – Very old) // Denim Apron Dress (Jumble Sale) // Floral “Homo Superior” Socks (Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh) // Wanderlust 101 Boots (Dr Martens)* // Small Slouch Leather Backpack (Dr Martens)* // Emoji Pin Badges (Emoji Shop)*

~ THE OUTFIT ~

I wore a very similar combination of this outfit to dinner the other night (seriously though, it really does seem that the Italians only tend to eat pizza and pasta!) with a striped skirt instead of the denim dress but I actually kinda’ like this combo better. It’s very ‘ART student’-y and fits in well with the back to school vibe I was going for.

Over the past few months I feel like my style has really developed and I have to say that this is a very me outfit. It’s simple but strange; just how I like it. The top underneath is actually a dress from when I was about 6/7 years old (those aren’t really ¾ length sleeves, it’s just a really really old item of clothing – a pro (and con) of being extremely thin) but it works well as one of the very few items of black in my wardrobe. I popped on top this jumble sale find of a denim dress and there you have it!

Back To School Dr Martens AW15 Collection - Wanderlust 101

Well, almost! For the main attraction I went for a Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh (yes, my own collection of socks… eep!) and Dr Martens combo. I am honestly obsessed with how they both look together. The yellow stitching and the flowers… the colours… it’s a match made in heart-eye 😍 emoji heaven! I’m going to talk more about my love for DMs in a moment, so just take this time now to admire the beauty of my feet (weirdest sentence ever).

Also don’t forget to admire my backpack too… those straps though… #BackpackGoals? Is that a thing? Seriously though, if you’re looking for an indulgent purchase (buy my socks – I’m kind of kidding) definitely check out this backpack. Too. darn. beautiful. Oh and of course, if you’re looking for some Wellington boots, defo’ check out Mooi en Lief’s range.

~ THE BOOK ~

I also wanted to mention the new Dr Martens book. I have to be honest and say that I still have a couple of pages left, but all-in-all, “A History of Rebellious Self-Expression”* has been so interesting. If you’re a big DMs fan like me, then you’ll adore it… but it is also an awesome read for anyone interested in the many different musical sub-cultures throughout the decades from the 1960s – nowadays. It has a lot of information on the topics and how they made a deep impression on the rise of the Dr Martens brand.

I would definitely recommend picking it up. It’s only £10 ($15) and 50p (around $0.77 I believe) from every copy goes to the Joe Strummer Foundation, so not only are you getting an excellent read, but you’re also helping out an awesome musical charity. Sounds good, huh? It’s also made me feel extremely proud to be a DMs wearer. There is so much history behind the brand that genuinely blows my mind. It’s crazy!

~ THE CAMPAIGN ~

I definitely couldn’t write this blog post without leaving out something pretty awesome – the #STANDFORSOMETHING campaign. Dr Martens are just like me – they love self-expression (hence the book’s name ‘A History of Self-Expression’) which is a big reason for their campaign which you may have seen floating around on the internet. Dr Martens are asking you “What do you stand for?” so that you can have a big think as to what makes you, you.

Also I think if you log onto Facebook and share your style and what you stand for, you can win some DMs… pretty darn cool! 

Personally, I stand for diversity. I was going to say ‘for being me’ but I think diversity sums it up better. I stand for being unique and expressing who you really are, because after all, that’s what’s most important to me. I stand for every single individual who believes in being who they want to be. I stand for the diverse array of human beings that are standing on this planet just doing what they do best.


What do you stand for? Are you ready to go back to school and have you got your Dr Martens (and Mooi en Lief by TDP socks) at the ready? Let me know in the comments!


(This is not a sponsored/advertorial post. I was kindly sent some samples by Dr Martens but all opinions are 100% honest. I just really love DMs! You can read my full disclaimer here.)

Changing With The Seasons #5 – July, Summer*

By July 26, 2015 My Style

I’m sorry that of my very few recent posts, that today’s is another outfit, but I didn’t want to miss this month’s Changing With The Seasons post, so I just had to pop this up. I really hope you don’t mind! I’ll try and have some different kinds of posts up soon… I’m just still trying to get my mojo back. Anyway, here’s how to dress for summer…

Okay, let’s just jump to it… THIS. TWO. PIECE. I don’t even care if 99% of this post is just all about the jacket and skirt, because looook. at. it. You won’t believe this when I say it, but I picked this up for £5.00 at a jumble sale. It fits like a glove and it is just stunning. I probably styled it in a bit of an odd way, but I was just too excited to share it that I had to include it.

The print is just beautiful and gives that sort of modern vibe even though the set is obviously vintage. I’d say it is probably an 80s/90s piece due to the baggy arms and oversized feel, but I honestly don’t mind at all. I think it’s going to be so fun to style, especially as you can wear the jacket and skirt separately. No doubt you’ll see it in a future #OOTD!

Now let’s talk about what’s underneath (okay, well erm… I probably worded that wrongly)… firstly, the top. This is actually a fairly old ASOS purchase, which I don’t tend to wear as it’s a fairly scratchy material but I think it worked well for an added contrast of colour.

Next up, where is the blue skirt? It’s like the Where’s Wally? of an outfit post… but it’s fairly simple. So I didn’t cheat, and stayed tied up with the CWTS series, I popped the skirt underneath my new floral denim number and created a faux pleated hem. What d’ya think? Yay or nay?

And as I like to do for this lil’ series, here’s my video! It’s just a fun way to show you what the outfit’s really like on and get a bit creative. I think I may have had the exposure settings a bit wrong with this one, so sorry about the darkness, but I think it’s okay… I hope you enjoy a very rare YouTube appearance from me.

Hopefully I’ll be back soon with a very exciting announcement (hopefully) so do stay tuned! I think August is going to be a very busy and eventful month so hopefully in September I’ll be back to my usual self again, brimming with ideas and hopefully posting more designed based posts. That’s my goal! Until then… speak soon 🙂 Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

My Style: Good Morning Sunshine!*

By July 4, 2015 My Style

Long time no outfit post, heh? The days fly by and when I look at the date of my last one I think, really?! Jeeeez, it’s been a while! Anyway, today’s post is in celebration of the ridiculous weather right now. Some days you think “Ahh, so beautiful, sunshine and warmth…” and on other days you think “This is too hot. Where is the rain?”, but I’d like to celebrate the beautiful side of it today. Let’s talk more about what I’m wearing for it then, shall we?

I’ve decided that this is a very “me” outfit. I always take a fairly ordinary outfit and make it weird somehow by adding a bold (and beautiful) skirt, but hey ho! The most “normal” (I mean really, is there such a thing as “normal”?) piece in this outfit is my new Good Morning Wildfox jumper which I am simply in love with! Grey slogan tops are such a simple way to pull an outfit together and this is my most recent addition to my collection. I love the slouchy vibes and the frayed edges. What d’ya think?

The more “weird” part of this outfit is my crazy skirt which was a jumble sale find, from ages ago. I absolutely love it… once again, it has a rather slouchy fit to it like the jumper, but the print makes up for the casual vibes. I love how floaty it is and it probably is one of my favourite skirts to date.

To be quite honest, I’d probably only wear the jumper with this outfit, in the evenings, so to make it a bit more daytime friendly, I also wore my Super crop top, which still keeps the slogan in there. I also like how it pops out on your shoulder when you are wearing the sweatshirt on top!

That GIF took me way too long to make, so you better watch it about 10 billion times and truly appreciate it. Look at that spin! I’m a ballerina. Like, a legit ballerina…. I kid. Although, I did use to be! I think it lasted a year when I was about 4, so it probably doesn’t really count but erm… oh well!

Sunglasses time! I’m a big sunglasses fan, so when I see a pair I like, I take them… quite literally in fact. I’m pretty sure Mama Posh has no idea that these have been stolen adopted by me! I love the vibe they give off though… they have that retro French feel to them and they make me feel pretty bad-ass when paired with a black floppy hat. I’m not sure they’re available to buy now though, I’m afraid! I think they’ve possibly been in my mum’s drawer for a few years…

Finally, the shoes… this pair are not only good looking, comfortable and affordable, but they’re also great for making my tan look a bit darker than it really is. I can definitely count it as one, right? 2 days at the beach in one week, can do that, can’t it? Speaking of shoes, I recently passed on my floral Dr Martens as they were too small and now I really want a new pair… must resist!

I’m sorry I’ve been quiet for a few days, but it’s actually felt quite good to just let my blog sit for a while. I hope you didn’t miss me too much! 😉 Today I have the penultimate outfit in my mini fast food fashion series. Have you been enjoying it? I hope so! This is all about the drinks… well soft drinks, just to reassure you. I’m talking coke/coca-cola floats and all things yummy. Hmm yeah!

This outfit is super, super simple, but I feel like when styled in the right way, it has a sort of minimalistic aesthetic to it. I received this t-shirt when I won an ASOS voucher over on Hayley’s blog (she’s an awesome beauty blogger if any of you are interested) in collaboration with Diet Coke and I knew it would be perfect for this segment. It’s very oversized but paired with my structured skirt, the bagginess of it is counteracted.

I never really wear simple outfits because I always end up “ruining” (well, not really) them with weird pieces like the accessories I choose. It works in my mind though, it’s a little bit of this and that, mixed and stirred with my usually random personality…!

Talking of the accessories, I went for that New Look milkshake clutch, and I love how it picks out the colours from the rest of the outfit. Again, it’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Much like how you would make a coke float actually… a little bit of Coca-Cola and a little bit of ice cream! Hmm, they always remind me so much of the unlimited amounts my family and I would devour on holidays to Greece. Always take advantage of unlimited things!

Finally, let’s talk shoes. You all probably know about my love for these chunky platform Vagabonds, but heck, why not talk about them again? They’re a dream okay. If you like the look of heels but not the idea, get these! So comfy, amazing quality and also… they’re on sale! I paired them with these cheeky socks which are just the cherry on top (see what I did there?!). What d’ya think? 🍼

This an outfit which I’m actually really happy with. It’s pretty cutesy but then it still caters for my style and the simple elements of things which I’m loving right now. It also caters for the weather perfectly… it’s finally warm enough for my legs to be out without tights, and my arms to be (almost) sleeve free! YAY!

The top is a number I received from Blue Vanilla, and it’s actually surprisingly awesome. I do have to admit that the fabric is rather plastic-y and when I originally unfolded it from the packaging, I had to actually pull it apart. Other than that, the design is lovely and I like the mix between grid, mesh and florals.

One of my birthday presents was this absolutely adorable across-body bag in the shape and style of an apple juice carton… HOW CUTE?! I’d actually seen this on the Accessorize site before so when I peeled back the wrapping paper I was so happy to see it was underneath.

I also realised that the colours on the bag matched the rest of the outfit perfectly. The wording is dark blue just like the Changing With The Seasons, H&M skirt (you guys voted for it!) and the tiny little leaf detailing matches the mint from the top. The little details people, it’s all about the little details…

Finally, even more details. My shoes are my new favourite pair; another birthday gift which I am obsessed with. I’d say they’re my first pair of proper grown up flats, as usually they don’t fit due to my feet being so skinny mini, but luckily these fit like a dream with no rubbing. They’re also suede which makes them look super fancy. I just love them!

I also have this super cute necklace which was another birthday treat which I picked out myself. My sister has a similar one, so when I saw this blue version I knew it had to be mine! It matches all the colours once again, and I like how it compliments my floral headband too. Ahh, can you tell I like this outfit?

If you were here on my blog fairly recently, then you’ll know that I have started a mini series of fast food fashion inspired outfits! Last year I did a post on a few of my fast food fashion purchases, so I’m finally styling them up! This is part 2, so make sure you catch up with part 1, here!

So this outfit is all about the fries… or chips, whatever you want to call it! I’m actually pretty happy with it too! It’s a lot more fun and colourful, don’t you think? Anyway, I knew immediately I needed this Adolescent Clothing t-shirt… it’s such a same this post wasn’t up on a Friday… I mean, FRYDAY? Duhh! 🍟

In my opinion tulle skirts go perfectly with oversized tops. They’re that little bit of something special that make your outfit look like you actually made an effort to get dressed. Plus, if you wear shorts underneath like me, then if you get fed up of them, you can whip them off and totally change your outfit! Yay!

In terms of accessorising and pulling the fast food outfit together, I went for my awesome fries necklace. I think because I never usually wear red, I tend to leave this one hanging up, but now I’ve styled it like this, I kinda’ like it! Unfortunately I’m not sure you guys can actually purchase this anywhere online… but you can take a good look at it now… haha! Sorry… 🍟

Can we also talk swings? I knew I had to do these pictures at the park, and believe it or not (I literally had no idea until I edited these pictures) but the swings actually had matching red and yellow. How awesome is that? Matchy matchy.

And finally shoes… and a watch! I went for my nifty pair of supermarket jelly shoes because why not? They’re honestly the cheapest, most durable and comfortable pair of shoes I own. I honestly don’t care that people look at me funny for wearing beach shoes because they just don’t understand the comfort! They also look great with 🍟 chip 🍟 socks, so I’m not complaining!

For my watch, I’m wearing my new Slappie watch. It is in fact a slap-on watch. It’s super comfortable, it looks adorable and it even has an interchangeable watch face function so you can suit your watch to your mood. Pretty cool! I really like it, and the monochrome print is so me. What do you think?

Fast Food Fashion: The Main Course*

By April 27, 2015 My Style

If you remember last year, I did a blog post all about budget fast food fashion. If you’re not sure what that is exactly then take a look at Moschino AW14′. It’s the collection that started it all off, and ever since so many brands have been taking inspiration. Now, I don’t want to promote unhealthy eating here, but I’ve decided to take that post a step further and make it into a mini series of outfits inspired by each part of the meal; the main, side, drink and dessert. So, as you can probably tell from the title of this post, today is all about the main course… aka. BURGERS! 🍔

🍔 WHAT I WORE: Stripey Top (Johnnie B @ Boden)* // Dungarees (Jumble Sale) // Burger Socks (Kylie @ M&Co)* // Burger Necklace (ASOS)* // Fast Food Badges (Claire’s) // White Dioon Vagabonds (Mastershoe)* 🍔

When I think red, yellow and green, I also think, blue and white, so I knew immediately that I had to pair all of these different colours together in this exact way. Instead of wearing Moschino rip-offs from eBay, I decided to think about the kind of Parisian girl who hangs out at chic diners and eats burgers with pastel pink milkshake in hand… well almost. I’m not sure McDonalds 🍔 really counts as ‘chic’ but you get the gist.

This Johnnie B top is one of those ‘throw it on and it will look perfect’ tops! Plus, if you’re not wearing dungarees to cover it up, the hem has a beautiful bit of lace detailing to add to the cuteness of it. If you don’t own a stripey top, please go out and get one. They should be a staple of everyone’s wardrobe (…okay if you don’t like stripes, I’ll let you off but they honestly look amazing on anyone)!

This might be weird to say but I actually feel like the simplicity sums up the whole 🍔 “fast food fashion” 🍔 idea; it’s a very simple concept and works will in terms of style and marketing. It shows how all parts of life can influence art and fashion itself. It’s simple, “quirky” and all kinds of awesome. What are your thoughts on the idea? 

Also, let’s talks denim. I’m obsessed with it right now. I never used to be so in love with it but again it’s just simple. It has that look of something different; colour but with a touch of texture. But even then it can be turned into texture with a bit of ripping and fraying. It’s a magical fabric and I want to embrace it some more!

The main part of this outfit being fast food inspired is the accessories. These socks were in the original blog post and they worked really well here. I was worried that this necklace from ASOS 🍔 would clash with the colours, but it worked with a bit of help from some fast food badges (I mean, who can resist a 5 items for £3 deal at Claire’s? They came to sixty pence!). Oh and of course that Happy Meal… which unfortunately is now in my stomach. I mean, the gherkin’s healthy right? 😛

Sound the alarm bells! These pictures weren’t taken on my drive way! Hooray! Prepare yourself for a very rare treat of a colourful backdrop, and the very first glimpse of summer! Yay! Okay, in all seriousness I really am excited for these photos. My family might not be too happy I dragged them around trying to find somewhere to take them but I am! 😀

When the sun comes out, come out. For some reason it’s like my inner stylist pops out as soon as I can leave the house without a jacket, and I’m so glad. I really did think I’d lost my mojo for picking out cool outfits but I think today’s pickings are quite good. I would say that what I’m wearing isn’t to everyone’s taste but I’m okay with that. Speaking of being okay with that, would you mind clicking off after this post and filling out a quick survey I’m doing for some research? Tah!

I recently received these bizarre yet super funky Jonathan Aston tights from MyTights.com, and I knew I had to show them off in full form, so I went with my KENZO shorts (probably my favourite ever jumble sale buy) on top. I then added my cool (kids club) jumper 😉 I think the mix of 2 floral prints and 2 bold slogans is an interesting combination… what do you think?

This outfit shows that I’m obsessed with blue. It’s probably my favourite colour because it’s bold, versatile and suits every mood I’m in. My wardrobe seems to be full of blue floral prints and it just seemed to work in this outfit. It’s also told me that I need to go to some more jumble sales because they seriously do have hidden treasures. I mean… look at my shorts?! I’m pretty certain they were only €1.00!

My sunglasses are freakin’ awesome too. The shape is growing on me and the print is too. Of course just like my jumper, they’re from ASOS; Ahh, I love ASOS… I mean I LOVE ASOS.

So I suppose I should celebrate this jumble of an outfit! It’s full of rediscovered jems, interesting tights (that I’m also learning to love) and shorts which give out those spring/summer vibes. Here’s to making up outfits in the form of late night doodles and to posing infront of brightly coloured doors. Roll on the summer! 😀
