Wishlist: Patchwork Denim, Red, White & Blue*

By March 10, 2016 Wishlist

I haven’t put up a wishlist style post in a while, so seeing as a new season is about to set in, I thought I’d put one up. I’ve been seeing a lot of patchwork denim around the place as well as the still ever growing trend of embroidered badges so that’s basically what this consists of. You can see which are my favorites below…

SS16 Trends Wishlist Patchwork Denim - ASOS Dr Martens River Island SPRINGTIME


Heels (River Island @ ASOS) // Surrender Badge (Rosie Wonders @ ASOS) // Purse (Springtime)* // Clutch (SPRINGTIME)* // Skirt (ASOS) // Rose Badge (Rosie Wonders @ ASOS) // Dr Martens (Dr Martens) // Wallet (SPRINGTIME)* // Pinafore (ASOS)


I’m ever so slowly becoming a shoe person, and I’m also ever so slowly starting to fall in love with heels (eek!) and this combination of a shoe, heel, denim and patchwork has me with heart shaped eyes. I’m not sure the boot style would actually fit my very slim figure though… which is a shame because they really are quite delightful.

To match those, this dress and and this skirt would work perfectly. I’ve actually had my eye on that patchwork denim pinafore for a while now and I’m thinking it would look pretty great this summer with a crisp white blouse (which I’m now an owner of – it’s a Stradivarius number) underneath and then quite possibly a cool pair of Dr Martens on my feet… these Valentine’s pair are pretty funky, right?

In terms of the accessories, like I mentioned, it seems that embroidered patches aren’t going anywhere soon and I’m pretty happy about that… did I mention that my socks come with a free embroidered badge, yet? 

I’ve included a few SPRINGTIME pieces there too because I love what they’re brand is all about. You may have noticed the new addition to my sidebar, which has a handy link straight to their site. When the lovely team got in touch with me, I knew I had to work with them because they have such an awesome message about achieving your dreams and spreading that passion to everyone around you. I’m all for it and the fact that they’re pieces are all very denim orientated… well it makes them that much better.


What have you been wishing for recently? Let me know in the comments!

When In Rome… 🇮🇹

By February 20, 2016 DIY & Lifestyle

Unfortunately LFW fell at a bit of an odd time for me to do London Fashion Blog Week this season, which is why this post has absolutely no reason to the great fashion month that has already kicked off. This post is a little lifestyle-y but with a small outfit thrown in too. My family and I traveled to Rome for a nights stay in an AirBnB (our first ever experience), so that my brother could go off and see Ronaldo do his thing against A.S Roma ⚽ and so I could go and take a look at some of those great Michelangelo paintings. So here are some pictures from the two days we were there…

I’ve actually been to Rome a few times before but I couldn’t really remember that much of it, so it was nice to really soak it all up. I especially loved the architecture, and how colourful it all was. Italians seem to love their painted houses and Rome was full of colourful buildings, especially in gorgeous muted pink tones… perfect for outfit snaps as you can see from above!

We were actually lucky enough to take a trip to the Vatican museum which takes you through the Vatican all the way into the Sistine Chapel. It was a really cool experience but definitely don’t go unprepared without a good pair of shoes… it’s a long walk! Some of the art work really is quite incredible and you’re lucky enough to be able to take photos which is quite rare (although not in the Chapel… they made that very clear).

WHAT I WORE: Black Faux Leather Biker Jacket (ARK)* // Geometric Maxi Dress (ASOS) // Floppy Hat (ASOS)


The paintings really are quite incredible, mainly because they’re all in such good condition. The Last Judgement really is quite spectacular… it’s huge and you don’t really get enough time to take it all in due to the fact that you’re crammed into the chapel with hundreds of other people (they really need to only let in a certain amount of people at one time). I’d recommend it though! The whole tour was definitely worth it, even if you’re not necessarily that interested in ART… to be able to say you’ve been around the Vatican is quite a statement.

There was also a Matisse exhibition showing which was exciting for me as I’m a big fan of his work…. a picture in front was of course obligatory. Excuse the messy hair… long days with long hair = frizz and mess… a hat is an essential item! There was also a collection of lots of different artists including Salvador Dalí, but sadly most people were just walking on past. Stop and appreciate it, people!

LOCATION: Via dei Coronari, Rome, IT 🇮🇹


So I’ll talk a little about my outfit… I accidentally wore a combination that gives the illusion of blue knee high boots. Oops. It didn’t look so bad in real life, but in photos you could most definitely mistake my trousers for boots!

Talking of boots… I officially have four pairs of Dr Martens thanks to winning the Facebook page give-away they run every week. Definitely worth the two minutes of filling it out because now I have another pair in my collection!

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.

#MooiEnLiefbyTDP Christmas Gift Guide & GIVE-AWAY

By December 3, 2015 Competitions, General

So Christmas is now right around the corner (22 days people, 22 days!) so I thought it would be a perfect time to share some little gift ideas for those of you who are need that last bit of inspiration in the form of a Christmas gift guide. For some reason I’ve been really struggling this year – why are you so hard to buy for Papa Posh?! 🎅 Each set of gifts are inspired by my collection of socks with Mooi en Lief because I thought it would be quite fun to put together. According to The Telegraph Gift Guide 😉 socks are a great gift idea… Top Of The Pops magazine think so too; you can spot them on the wishlist page on January 20th 2016! Also, scroll on down for a give-away! 🎉

Christmas Gift Guide and Give-Away - Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh - ASOS Urban Outfitters

~ HOMO SUPERIOR ~


1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8


For the Homo Superior pair of socks, I decided to stick with a very gold based colour palette as the yellow is more of a mustard tone so it works really well. Although the design is pretty fun, it’s also really versatile which means it works well with other prints and more simple items like this super cute Monki beanie from ASOS. The Vagabonds are the ones I wore in the Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh lookbook, so if you know any big 70s fans, I’m sure they’ll love a pair of these as a treat (they’re on sale at the mo’ too).

There are also a few miscellaneous items like the Hunky Dory album by David Bowie which is actually one of the inspirations behind this pair of socks (hence the name – Homo Superior – from Oh You Pretty Things), as well as this super cute little Instax frame from Urban Outfitters (I’ve already put this on my own Christmas list!).

~ BLUE BOOTIN ~


1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8


I’m not going to lie, this is probably a Tolly gift guide rather than just a general one because… I love every item. I think bold block prints always work well with either a contrasting colour or monochrome… it just seems to compliment these sorts of prints really well. I had to include at least one Skinnydip item in this gift guide as they have so many exciting pieces now… I mean, look at that ZAP bag?!

Speaking of bags, this awesome Dr Martens number is so beautiful. My black backpack has had so much wear already so I can definitely recommend their bags as much as their boots… who wouldn’t want Dr Martens under their tree, though?

I’ve also included some adorable stocking fillers like some holographic stickers, a book for budding photographers and a keyring incase the ZAP bag is a bit too much for your gift receiver.

~ CAMP BLANC ~


1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9


I think when styling up primary colours, it’s best to stay within the primary colour spectrum, so that’s why for these socks I went with some red and blue pieces that compliment the socks really well. Plus, most people like reds and blues especially when it comes to winter and Christmas, so these gifts might be great options. There are quite a few stocking fillers listed too, if you’re looking for smaller gifts. Belts, hats, scarves, gloves and even socks, are great for simple gifts for friends when you’re really stuck for ideas – even if it does sound boring!

I’ve seen lots of these mittens now, going along with the 70s trend, and they look super cosy! Match them with a beanie and you’re good to go… you could even jazz it up with a matching floral crown (I’ve done this with floppy hats before – it magically transforms your hat!). Also for an extra touch of cosy – mugs and hot chocolate are always a great combo!

Andiamo! | A Road Trip to Italy…

By August 29, 2015 DIY & Lifestyle

I don’t think my life has ever been so manic… okay, maybe it has been but seriously, I’m launching a collection of socks with Mooi en Lief next week (EEEP!) and now, I’m off on a road trip to Italy! Yup! More deets here if ya’ wanna’ know…

road trip to italy - andiamo - let's go!

~ ANDIAMO! ~

As you may know, I’m currently home schooled which allows me more time to do things like blogging and focus on things that I’m truly passionate about. It also means that I have time to travel, seeing as my “school” could move into a jungle if it really wanted (okay, maybe not), so as you can probably tell, I’m going off to Italy on a road trip!

You may have seen that I say I am in “UK & France”, because it’s kinda’ true. I’m back and forth quite a bit, and I think for now, it will more be “UK & Italy”. I think it’s going to be really exciting… I suppose I haven’t really been excited for the journey yet, but now I write this, I kinda’ am!

road trip to italy - andiamo - let's go!


WHAT I WORE: Stripey Top (Johnnie B @ Boden)* // Leather Backpack (Dr Martens)*


I have been to Italy before (specifically Rome, Venice and Genoa) but that’s just a small percentage. It will be really interesting to see the difference between France and Italy, and even England! I think I’m most excited to try real pizza, I mean who wouldn’t be?!

It will also be my first experience of a campervan which I’m also ridiculously excited about! Even our furry little black cat friend, Paloma, will be joining us on our adventure. If you have any tips on travelling on long journeys with cats, do let us know! She’s been from the UK to France and didn’t make a single noise, so fingers crossed she’ll be fine!

This does also mean that all of my blog posts coming up are going to firstly be scheduled, but they’re also all going to be Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh related. There will be give-away’s so you won’t be missing out on too much! I’ll also give you a break half way through with an ordinary post from yours truly!

Also, I’m really sorry for not doing the second instalment of Changing With The Seasons – Summer, but as you can tell, I just haven’t had the time! I’ll be back in October though…


Are you excited for the next few weeks to come? Leave a comment and we can chat when I get a spare moment. For now… andiamo!

A-Z Fashion Guide: Carnaby Street

By May 2, 2015 A-Z Fashion

I know this series was meant to be over a long time ago, but it’s one of those posts I’m not sure whether you love or loathe…?! Please do let me know in the (now non Disqus) comments section! I’ve decided to turn of Disqus for a while to see how things go…. let me know what you prefer! Anyway, let’s get on with this A-Z Fashion Guide post all about Carnaby Street!

Carnaby Street - Best Shops in London - A-Z Fashion Guide

(Images via Pinterest. All sources here.)

Carnaby Street is most commonly known for being a Soho shopping street in London. The reason it’s important to the fashion industry is because of how popular it was in the 1960s. After jazz clubs opening up, people started to gather on Carnaby Street and it soon became the social hub for the swinging sixties. The first boutique to open up was “His Clothes” by John Stephen, which was followed quickly by designers like Mary Quant.

Carnaby Street soon became the place to be in London. Bands like the Rolling Stones started to appear in the area, and with music being such a huge influence on fashion… well, you can see why it’s such an important part of this A-Z Fashion Guide. Even the song “Dedicated Follower of Fashion” by The Kinks, has links to the famous shopping streets.

If you want to know where mod fashion came from, then you’re in the right place! Carnaby Street was one of the main influences for that too. Apparently young “mods” would say they would go without food to buy more fashionable clothes of the time. In the video above you can spot out some of the awesome trends from back then; shift dresses, turtle necks, bold and colourful prints, fitted suits for the men, and short skirts for the women…

I’ve created another map for you to explore Carnaby Street. If you’re wanting some new shoes, I’d definitely take a peep as there seems to be a lot of shops offering the latest styles for your toes! My favourite has to be Dr. Martens so definitely pop in if you have the chance. Make sure you let me know your favourite Carnaby Street shops in the comments below!

9 Pairs of Shoes Kimmy Schmidt Would Totally Purchase*

By April 9, 2015 Fashion

If you haven’t seen my endless ‘females are strong as hell’ and ‘unbreakable, dammit’ tweets, then you won’t know that I recently finished watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. And let me tell you, it was awesome! It’s a comedy full of feminism and awesome fashion choices, what’s not to love? So today I’ve picked 9 (it would be 10 but I’m weird like that) pairs of ‘Kimmy Schmidt shoes’! Let me know which is your favourite pair in the comments! 

Kimmy Schmidt Shoes - Jones Boot Maker, ASOS, Dr Martens


Converse £40.00 (Jones Boot Maker)* // Adidas £70.00 (ASOS) // ASOS Jelly Shoes £10.00 // Dr Martens £79.98 (Mastershoe)


For the flats category, I picked out a mixture of simplicity, print, colour and comfort. I think that’s what Kimmy is all about; she’s a right mixture of everything. For comfort and print, I went for these super cute Converse from Jones Boot Maker! I think they look pretty cute, right? I also think she’d love these Dr Martens too… I personally really need a new pair in my collection! What do you think of those Adidas too? I kinda’ like them, they almost look like they’ve been dipped into paint? Funky.

Kimmy Schmidt Shoes - Jones Boot Maker, ASOS, Dr Martens


ASOS Spotty Heels £35.00 // Orla Kiely £120.00 (Clarks) // ASOS Strappy Heels £35.00 // Heeled Sandals £79.00 (Jones Boot Maker)* // Vagabonds £74.99 (Mastershoe)


Believe it or not, Kimmy did indeed dabble in heels throughout the series and I think this selection is perfect. They’re all very simple and classic shapes and styles but all have that touch of excitement and fun. I think you can probably tell that they’re all very bold and I love that! Kimmy (and every character) are so full of life and I think that is definitely portrayed in what they all wear. If you have seen the show, who is your favourite character and which pair of Kimmy Schmidt shoes did you like the most?

(Links marked with an * are part of a PR collaboration with Jones Boot Maker. The rest of the is 100% honest and I was not paid to write it. You can read my PR disclaimer here.) Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

Getting Ready For Spring Wishlist | ASOS & Dr Martens

By March 2, 2015 Wishlist

Oh wow, I haven’t done a wishlist in a while, have I? I’m back from a short break (by a break, I mean a busy 10 days) and I thought I would kick off March with a wishlist! A few of these items are ‘I like that’ items and a few of them are ‘I neeeeeed that’ items, so it’s a bit of a… ‘I really cannot wait for spring wishlist’. Why not tell me what you’ve been loving recently in the comments?

Spring Wishlist - ASOS, Dr Martens, Next, Novelty Bags


WISHLIST: Oh Snap Clutch (Skinny Dip @ ASOS) // Drumstick Bag (Next) // Shark Purse (ASOS) // Jazz Trainers (Saucony @ ASOS) // Leopard Print Boots (Dr Martens) // Colourful Tattoo Boots (Dr Martens) // White & Blue Skirt (Motel @ ASOS) // Velvet Roll Neck (ASOS) // Just Hype Sweatshirt (Hype @ ASOS)


Bags, Bags, Bags…

I’m a big fan of bags at the moment (the carrier kind, not the under-eye ones…), and I especially love the novelty, ‘based on’ style ones. I’ve picked out 3 of my favourites. First up is this super cool Skinny Dip number which I’m obsessed with. I’m in love with their whole brand currently and I really hope one day they’ll bring out all of their iPhone cases in clutch form too!

The Drumstick number is from Next (in my opinion, that’s quite surprising) and I love it! I really want to try and inject some more red into my wardrobe as I’m pretty sure I have every colour item other than red. PLUS, it looks like a Drumstick! The shark purse is just adorable and if it goes down any lower in price I may just snap it up. SO CUTE.

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes…

My feet won’t stop growing. One minute I’m size 5 and the next I’m size 7, so shoes are always on my mind. These 2 pairs of Dr Martens neeeeeeed to be mine. I feel like they were made for me. Don’t you agree?! They’re just perfect. Colour and print all in one, plus that added bonus of grunge from the classic chunk of the DM boot…. perfection. Sometime soon they will be mine! I can feel it in my fingers…. I can feel it in my toes 😉

Clothes, Clothes, Clothes…

A random bundle which just caught my eye. I’m so excited for summer yet I’m still clinging on to long sleeves, which pretty much means it’s Spring! I’m obsessed with the 70s trend and I have a feeling I will be throwing my wardrobe back to the era very soon. Rainbows seem to be a big thing at the moment too, I especially love this lil’ sweatshirt.

P.S My first ever newsletter went out last night and I was pretty excited! It was a little taster but if you are interested, make sure you sign up for the next one! Subscribe here. Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

I’m quite happy with these pictures again which is a good thing, but the even better thing is the fact that very soon I will have my hands on a new lens! So exciting 🙂 You guys give me the opportunity to improve my photography, and I’m so grateful.

WHAT I WORE: Teddy Textured Jumper (Glamorous)* // Grey Structured Skirt (Glamorous)* // Metallic Dr Martens (Mastershoe My-Shu)* // Black Floppy Hat (ASOS) // Gold & White Necklace (Claire’s)* // CASIO Sheen ‘SHE-3030GL-5AUER’ Watch (Casio)*


Ever since this skirt and jumper combo slipped through the door, I have been obsessed. They’re both very autumnal, but they are so versatile and I can see myself wearing them all the way through the year. The jumper is this weird fuzzy, teddy bear material, which I think adds an awesome layer of texture and dimension to the outfit. The skirt has actually been on my radar for a while… I am in love with structured skirts, so when I saw this, I snapped it right up! The lining is actually a deep burgundy red colour, and looks awesome when it sneakily flashes in the wind (how can I right that without it sounding weird?!). I knew straight away what I was going to wear it with, and I think I nailed it (can I say that?)… and yes, I know… I’m wearing navy and black in the same outfit… somebody call the fashion police!

I thought I’d whack in a mini review in this post because I’ve always been intrigued by Glamorous. A while back they emailed me asking if I’d be interested in working with them, and it was a bit of a hassle, but finally (I mean like 4 or 5 months later), I’m here now, and I’m pleasantly surprised! My items arrived ship sharp with free delivery, which is pretty darn awesome! They both came packaged well and fit perfectly, so I would have to say I would definitely recommend looking into them, even after the hassle I had with them previously. I like to be honest on this little old blog, so there you go!

Let’s talk accessories though… a while back I was sent a bunch of goodies from the Claire’s Katy Perry PRISM collection, and to be quite honest I have only really gotten round to wearing the pieces now! I knew that as soon as my beautiful new watch arrived (more on that later), that I would be wearing this necklace non-stop! The colours match perfectly, even though the watch is actually rose gold (I know… ROSE GOLD). I think it’s the little touches that really make an outfit come together, and this outfit is full of them! Oh and look at my gorgeous Dr Martens making another appearance… jeez, I love these shoes SO much! They’re just perfect and fit my style so well at the moment. Cannot rate them enough! Don’t forget my  floppy hat too! I’m so glad I purchased it, as it’s been the best thing as the weather’s got cooler, love love love!

And finally, we have the main star of the show… my gorgeous watch from Casio Sheen! I’ve never actually been that much of watch wearer, but after receiving this, I think I maybe converted. I think one of the main reasons is because I am very slim, I have to reach for the teen/tween style ones which are just a bit too young for me, and not really up my street, because they tend to fit a bit better. I was worried this wouldn’t fit, but to my surprise, it actually fits like a glove! It has a different clasp than usual, but it makes wearing it a whole lot more comfortable. Although it is a bit of a pricey piece, it truly has made me fall in love with the whole ‘arm candy’ thing. It’s just right, it’s not too showy, or too simple, and the rose gold just tops it all off.

Are you a watch person? Have you tried out Glamorous? Let me know in the comments! I love hearing your thoughts 🙂

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! 🙂

Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx
