My Style: Sardegna, Italy*

By November 27, 2016 My Style

Like every outfit post it seems, it’s been a while since my last. Quite honestly, my appearance hasn’t been on top form over the past few months because I’ve been living in a tent, out of a dust covered house and now a very limited amount of clothes as we start exploring in Sardegna (Sardinia). But I thought I’d take a moment to share with you something I’ve been wearing a lot recently. You may notice I’ve worn the top half of this outfit in photos already but an outfit isn’t much of an outfit without something on the bottom!

WHAT I WORE: Yellow Leather Jacket €35 (Jumble Sale) // Pink Turtleneck £5 (Charity Shop) // Navy Satin Trousers €5 (Jumble Sale) // Dr Martens Pascal Mirror Shift Suede Boots (Mastershoe-MyShu)*


Looks familiar, huh? It probably looks familiar to my whole family seeing as I’ve worn this outfit about 500 times since I bought all of the pieces. It’s a colour blocking outfit and it was even more block-y when I was wearing it with my white platform heels, but I’ve refined it now which means it blends out in the right places. The majority of it as you will see above, is second-hand. Everything other than the Dr Martens and one of my rings are previously owned which means I’m happy to promote the whole look.

And luckily, even though I was wearing it with a winter coat over the top at home in England, the weather here in Sardinia means I can wear it with everything on show. That’s one thing about winter I dislike – sometimes you’ll be wearing an outfit you love, but you have to cover it up with a coat or jacket that isn’t quite as exciting.

Speaking of jackets, I’ve worn my yellow leather number so much more than I expected myself to. One of my biggest concerns before purchasing it was ‘What will I wear it with?’, but it seems I can wear it with quite a lot. I haven’t had the chance to wear it with a dress yet, but I know with the right shoes and accessories, it could work well with something floatier than what I’m wearing here.

The trousers are probably one of my favourite purchases of late. The satin texture is surprisingly wearable, and as I mentioned above about the block outfit blending in certain parts, the sheen and shine to them ties in my Dr Martens. There’s something really satisfying about the contrasting colour of the rest of the outfit, tied in with the shoes and trousers. I’ve yet to wear the matching suit jacket as I was about to adjust the shoulders before another earthquake hit… but you just know I’ll be shooting an outfit as soon as it’s ready to wear.

Sunglasses €2 (Jumble Sale) // Middle Finger Ring (Unknown) // Index Finger Ring (Arezzo D’oro Diamond Cut Stacker Ring – Gemporia)* // Ear Cuff (Claire’s)


If you read my second hand shopping post, not only would you have seen the top half of this outfit before, you would have seen my jewellery and sunglasses. I’m a very simple jewellery person. In fact, I’m so simple that I now hardly ever take my rings off. The only real things I change up are whether I’m wearing a watch or whether I have an ear cuff on (which I really wish was a real piercing. I was planning on getting my helix done, but I haven’t had the time yet). This recent discovery in semi-permanent jewellery has made me question why people worry about mixing silver and gold. My watch is gold but everything else I wear is silver. Mix it up! Forget the norm! Wear what you wanna’ wear. We haven’t got time for rules.

I’ve come to the conclusion that my Dr Martens are a fairly sustainable purchase. They’re not the most ethical from what I know, and there are definitely better options (even from Dr Martens themselves with their vegan and Made in England collections), but if they’re going to be lasting me years and I’m only buying a pair every once in a while, I don’t feel too bad about it. I’m always talking about how we have to take small personal steps to becoming more ethical and sustainable in our lives, so I’m going to admit that this is a small step I have yet to take.

What have you been wearing recently? How would you style a yellow jacket? What’s your small step you’ve yet to take? Let me know in the comments!

Fast Food Fashion: Coca-Cola Float*

By June 12, 2015 My Style

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? 🍼

How To Style Jeans And A Top | Outfit Grids

By February 15, 2015 General

So the weather deceived me. It was all sunny and “You can just wear a jacket today Tolly”, and now it’s gloomy and rainy, which means I couldn’t take any outfit pictures, boo! Knowing my luck it will get sunny again just as I pop this up, but oh well! Instead, I’ve decided to do a few outfits in a slightly different way. You may have seen these ‘outfit grid’ Instagram snaps, or those ‘flat lay outfits’ before, so today I’m gonna’ give that a go! This is a few ideas on how to style jeans and a top! Sorry if these are a bit too summery for your liking, I’m just feeling colourful so I needed to express it! Roll on the sunshine!

How To Style Jeans And A Top - Outfit GridOUTFIT #1

Mom Jeans (Jumble Sale) // Whatever Top (Adolescent Clothing)* // Faux Fur Backpack (George at ASDA) // Vagabond Dioon (Mastershoe)* // Blue Floral Sunglasses (ASOS)


The first outfit is one I made up just before falling asleep… just like most of my ideas (darn it!). I love the whole preppy kinda’ thing, so this is the perfect casual jean + top combo’ for me. Soft grays, whites and pastel blues compliment each other so nicely, and inject that hint of colour. I’d say this is the perfect way to experiment with your wardrobe if you like a comfy and minimal look. Statement tops are also a perfect way to inject a bit of fun!

Mom Jeans (Jumble Sale) // Whatever Top (Adolescent Clothing)* // Pink Tweed Jacket (Jumble Sale) // Metallic Lace Up Flats (New Look)* // Novelty Donut Clutch (New Look) // Blue Floral Sunglasses (ASOS)


I think a jacket can really pull together and outfit and my pink tweed jacket is the one for me! I love how the colours all merge together and add to the casual combo, but the metallic of the shoes add that something special. I can also announce that I am indeed the proud owner of that donut clutch from New Look. How cool is it though? SO. COOL.

 Mom Jeans (Jumble Sale) // Whatever Top (Adolescent Clothing)* // Pastel Purple Faux Fur Gilet (Choies) // Johnny Loves Rosie Floral Headband (ASOS) // Vagabond Dioon (Mastershoe)* // Clear Sunglasses (Topshop)


Last but certainly not least, this purple and pastel number. I love this! I definitely need to wear this as the weather gets better. The faux fur adds a twist of texture, and the floral headband is super cute! I’ve had my eye on it for ages, so when it went down to less than £5, I couldn’t resist! My favourite pair of sunglasses make an appearance too; they’re perfect with any outfit because they’re clear, meaning they don’t not match anything!

So there we have it! What did you think? Let me know if you want me to do anymore posts like this, as it was quite fun to put together! I’d be happy to 🙂 Just to let you know that my next post will be the start of my 2nd ever London Fashion Blog Week as I’m super busy next week, so they’ll be going up every other day for you! Speak soon 🙂
