The Tin Lady

Jacket - C/O Zaful  Blouse - Zara
Jeans - Topshop  Boots - ASOS
Necklace - Primark 

The blue, silver and metallic tones in this really remind me of the tin man from The Wizard of Oz, all shiny and grey. This jacket is an absolute babe, I got it a little oversized so that I could get lotsa layers on underneath it (unlike I did this day) But I couldn't help pair it with this amazing Zara sale find, I just love the way the blue and silver combine to create the greatest of chilly, blue looks! 

God Bless

Tokyo Photo Diary

A couple of days ago I got back from the most amazing week and half in Tokyo, Japan. 
As part of my uni course a whole group of us spent 8 days or so in the incredible city of Tokyo. I'm going to make a very, very big statement and say that I'm about 95% sure that it was my favourite and best holiday/trip, ever! Yes, I know, that's a pretty huge statement, but I stand by it! 
The 26+ hours travelling and the jet lag (it's currently 6:30am, as I'm writing this) aren't great but apart from that everything about my adventure to Tokyo was just fantastic! From the constant belly laughs to the insane food, the getting very lost to the breath taking view at breakfast (see, here) everything was just amazing. 
We explored so many different parts of Tokyo, and got to experience so many of the different things the Japanese culture had to offer; from Shrines to the Robot Restaurant, Disneyland to Mount Fuji, Harajaku to the Dog Cafe - we literally did it all, and then some! In usual Holly form I've collated my favourite images from the trip (and their was a whole lot of them) and put them together in a photo diary post for you all to check out! I also posted the first of my three Tokyo tavel vlogs on my YouTube channel whilst I was away, so if ya want to check that out or subscribe to see the other two then click, here.   

Lots of Love
God Bless

Little Lady

Dress - C/O Yoins  Jumper - Primark
Boots - Primark 

I don't very often look like a girl, let alone a lady, but I think this day I was a combination of both, rather than my usual 10 year old boy get up. I can't say that this look is a favourite of mine, but I like it all the same, especially the ruffle detail on the jumper, now that is my kind of girlie and cute! 

God Bless

Hello Space Boy

Coat - River Island  Tshirt - ASOS
Jumper - Topshop  Jeans - Topshop 
Boots - Ego

Those who have been around these parts for a while will know that me and dressing weather appropriately aren't very good friends (AKA: I'm pretty rubbishy at it) But on this occasion I don't think I did too badly, I had a jumper on and everything! 
I picked up that ASOS tee in the sale, and as soon as it arrived I'd put it straight on! I absolutely love it, black/dark tshirts are something that my wardrobe is really lacking and this gorgeous lil' sale find definitely helps fill that gap! 

God Bless

The depths of winter

We're already one month into 2017?
When did that blooming happen? Despite the fact that Christmas feels like it was years rather than weeks ago, it still feels like January was a really long month! 
It was a month full of dreaming, dreaming and more dreaming. A month of good friends, good food and me attempting to be more positive than I was at the end of last year.
Below is a snapshot of all that I got up to throughout the month of January, well, the bits that were captured by my instagram account anywho! If you fancy following me and seeing what I get up to in February (hello, trip to Tokyo!) then my user is @Holljc
