Dr Martens x Zara + Topshop

*Warning* You will see yet more photos of floral print trousers (taken pre-snow) if you keep reading…

When Dr Martens opened their flagship store in Bristol’s Broadmead last November I decided to snap up a pair of boots. Boots, may I remind you, that I was never allowed to have growing up.

Anywho, it’s taken me this long to post about these bad boys, the Pascal in ‘Dress Blues’, because it’s taken that long to wear them in. Perhaps the reason my parents wouldn’t allow me to own a pair wasn’t due to DMs ‘not being very ladylike’ but actually because they knew how much I would moan about wearing them in. But real leather comes at a cost, and look how pretty they are…

Over Christmas I wore them around the house with three pairs of socks, and as we near the middle of January I’m down to two pairs. I have wimpy feet that reject almost any shoes that comes near them, but I knew these boots would be worth the wait and I wasn’t wrong. So far they have been paired with floral skirts, denim shirts, bodycon and tunic dresses, but for their debut on the blog I though I’d have a stab at the modern grunge look, in the loosest fashion.

The trousers are a Topshop sale find, and the chunky knit bottle green jumper was a steal at £16 from Zara. It is so slouchy and comfortable, and coming in handy given how cold Bristol has been lately.

The satchel is also from Dr Martens, and has fulfilled my dream to find a replacement for the thread-bare school satchel I dug out of my parents attic a couple of years ago. The necklace was a Christmas present from Mr Ship-Shape, and the slightly sleepy expression is the model’s own…

I hope you’re all keeping warm and safe if it’s snowing where you are!
