My Life, My Style: French Exploration

By August 18, 2014 DIY & Lifestyle, My Style

Well hello’ there ladies and gents. I decided it was time I did a bit more than just an outfit post and took some lifestyle pictures too… so do excuse the rather cheesy use of a comma in this post title… it sounds like some sort of bad ITV2 reality show! Anyway, lets get on with this… oh and wish Papa Posh a belated Happy Birthday seeing as these pictures were taken on that day!

The first place we visited was a place called Auch. We’d been there before but only in the winter so it was so weird to see it with real, actual, living people wondering around. There’s a massive cathedral, and so many tiny little streets to wonder round. The thing about France is that you pass so many random, freaky things every time, it makes it a real adventure!

Coming out of Auch we stumbled across this huge Bric-o-Brac center… full. of. junk. It would be the sort of place to go to if you wanted a really bohemian, mix match house full of random bits and bobs. I got a bit excited when I saw the clothes though, unfortunately there were no awesome bargains (darn it!), but it was fun to look around. Mama Posh and I jokingly decided which of the old arm chairs we would pick if we had to… I decided that I would go for the mustard ones, and perhaps the paisley one too. I don’t know, there’s something kind of cool about them?!

We then found another weird place which was basically a ‘brocante’ fair (brocante basically means junk or odds and ends, just with a few more antique pieces thrown in), it had one bit which was a church full of really expensive pieces, really beautiful. I found this stunning mustard post box too… I must have a thing for mustard at the moment, it’s so pretty! To top it all off I had a Lipton Ice Tea after. It’s probably my favourite drink at the moment, it’s so refreshing! What’s yours?! Tell me in the comments… maybe I’ll discover something new to sip on!

What I Wore: Stripey Top (Saint James), Denim Camo Skirt (ASOS), Silver Belt (Unknown), Sunglasses (Topshop), Sunflower Floral Crown (DIY) & Leopard Converse Hi-Tops (Footlocker)

So let’s get down to business… the outfit kinda’ business! I know this outfit is kind of similar to my last outfit but who cares… we were travelling quite a bit and clothes are meant to be worn more than once, non? This outfit is pretty simple, a little french if you want to say that, with nautical stripes and a denim skirt! I haven’t worn this skirt in forever, and it’s about time I did seeing as it’s getting on the short side now. I’m not sure what else to say about this outfit… it’s kind of self explanatory in my opinion 🙂

But on second thoughts there is always time to explain the details! Let’s talk about my new floral crown for example! I picked up some more false flowers from a jumble sale for about three euros fifty after some haggling, but my brother says the white peonies look like onions and now I’m self conscious that they do. Do they?! If they do, let’s just comfort my little soul and say the sunflowers definitely look like sunflowers! It’s my first DIY elastic floral crown and after 2 burnt fingers I’d definitely say I’ll stick to alice band ones…! Another cheeky OOTD with my Converse. I do love them, very very much.

Well that’s it folks. I’ll leave you with this picture where I look really disheveled from sitting in the car most of the day. I’m also half smiling due to the fact people were walking past and I was trying to take a nice picture without looking really stupidly vain… ah well, c’est la vie! If you do like this kind of post, do let me know in the comments and I shall try and do some more when I can. Speak soooooon!

My Style: A La Plage… To The Beach*

By July 22, 2014 My Style

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…

my style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pom my style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pom my style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pomA couple of days before we headed to the beach, we visited Montpellier near the coast, and one of the shops I happened to pop into was Footlocker. 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 😀 I’m literally buzzing just thinking of it! Eeee!

Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

Charity Shop, ASOS & British Haul!

By February 23, 2013 Fashion, My Style

Bonjour again! I was going to do a video to this post but I’m too cold! And, the lighting today has been terrible, so I didn’t! Most of you will know that Papa Posh just got back from the UK on a short trip back, and he brought me back some goodies! A long with that I have also had a few purchases as well, so I thought I would put them altogether and do a Haul for you! Some of things you can get, and some of things you can’t but hey ho, it makes a good post! (Sorry about bad pictures, only on the iPhone today!)

photo 1From L to R: Pink Faux Snakeskin Bag (Charity Shop), Pleated Midi Skirt £6.00 (ASOS – Out of stock), Kenzo Top (Charity Shop), Dolce & Gabanna Top (Charity Shop), Converse Top (Charity Shop), Shrimps & Bananas (Poundland), Fizzy Strawberry Belts (Poundland), Strawberry Pencils (Poundland), Converse Style Shoes – on top of box – 10 euros (Charity Shop), Basketball Shoes £7.99 (H&M).

It’s been so long since I went back to the UK!photo 3photo 2 (2)I think my mum said this was only one euro, but I can’t be sure! It’s a really nice size, and I think if I ever get an iPad, this would be perfect!photo 1 (2)Yes! I got some designer clothes! I think these were about 5 euros each (BARGAIN ALERT). At first I looked at the Kenzo – yes KENZO – one, and thought it was gross but with my midi skirt – Post coming soon! – I think it will look really good, as well as the D&G top which is a little too big, but I think it will still look good with a white cami underneath.photo 4I am so excited to start reading this month’s issue! It’s so pretty and colourful! I always look forward to them!

Sorry there are no pictures of the shoes! I accidently deleted it at first, and then I forgot to take a picture the second time! 😛 Anyway, I hope you like this, and be sure to read it over and over again, because I am telling you now, I am not going to be spending after this Haul!

What have you bought recently? Have you bought anything similar to these? Make sure to tell me in a comment below!
