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!

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.)

My Style: Tennis Court & Dr Martens*

By September 24, 2014 My Style

Eeeee! I am so excited to share these pictures with you! Yesterday we found an old abandoned tennis court (it was at the top of a weird path at the top of a hill), and my outfit seemed to fit the setting really well and it came out with a really cool urban/grunge vibe. I’m really inspired by fashion editorials and the way they are done at the moment so sorry for the photo spam! I really hope you like these as much as I do! 😀 If you want to see where everything is from etc, scroll through the pictures to the end…

What I Wore: Cool Kids Club Sweatshirt (ASOS), White Star Print Blouse (Jumble Sale), Pleated Skirt (H&M Girls), Socks (FOX) & Dr Marten Pascal Mirror Shift Suede Boots (Mastershoe-MyShu)*

Dah-dah! I’m just SO pleased with how the photos came out! I don’t care if that sounds vain, but it’s just exciting when something comes together, especially when it’s spontaneous! I also absolutely love this outfit too, it’s quite autumnal I suppose, but it feels right now that the leaves are changing. You might recognise this jumper from my LFW outfit ideas… I finally caved in and purchased it after I found a 20% off code, hooray! I adore it.

I also adore my new Dr Martens… they’re SHINY! They’re beautiful. They’re the kind of iridescent metallic that looks different at every angle, I’m actually obsessed and can’t stop looking at them all the time. I highly recommend visiting the Mastershoe-MyShu website also, because they have a fabulous range of shoes, and loads of brands… plus they are super lovely, supportive people too. May I add that the socks I am wearing are the best kind of socks for Dr Martens, ever. They’re not too thick or too thin, just perfect!

What do you think of this outfit and this kind of post? Did you like the pictures? Let me know in a comment below, I love to know your thoughts! 🙂

Finally…. I own a pair of Dr Martens 1460s

By April 7, 2013 Fashion, My Style

Compose yourself Tolly, it’s just a pair of shoes…A pair of the most amazing shoes which I have been waiting soooo long for! Yes, TDP officially owns a pair of Dr Martens! The classic pair of 1460s of course. They maybe 2nd hand, but I simply do not care. I can now say the phrase, ‘I own a pair of Dr Martens’.
photo 1 photo 2 photo 3The pair of Size 5 (38) costing €30 (£25.40) slipped into my hands around about half past five today, in a small town near Castres in France. We went to a few jumble sales and Vide Greniers (french word for jumble sale kind of thing) today, to try them out, and the last one was certainly the best. We drove into the town and saw loads of cars parked everywhere, and walked up a hill where we found loads of stalls through the streets where people were living. I was hoping perhaps I may have come across a pair of these beauties, but I really wasn’t expecting it. We stopped to have ‘un barquette de frites’ (chips) for a snack, and my mum said ‘We will find you a pair‘ (Randomly). We walked on, and as I turned my head. I stopped, and ran. The pair above were sat on a table waiting to be taken away to a new home. 2 french girls were running the stall, and thought I was absolutely bonkers when I went ‘AAAAAH. DR MARTENS!! OMG!!‘ and then almost fainted (No joke, I really did). My dad then asked what size they were, I heard the number ’38’, then literally chucked them on the floor and tried them on. I slipped them on, and they fitted nicely, perhaps a little big for now, but I can only grow! They are in the best of conditions, almost like new, and nowhere near worn and stretched like you see on eBay (Where I’ve been looking for the past 7 years…). The icing on the cake was the price. €30?! Original 1460s cost about £100 RRP, so I had an amazing bargain! I swapped my boots over, and got to keep the original box too! The fact that they are pretty much identical to the ones in my DM poster, is amazing. Expect to see these babies in lots of OOTDs! I don’t think I will ever forget Sunday 7th April 2013. My first pair of Dr Martens were put on my feet. #firstandforever
