New Docs

Ok I know I said I would stop at the gold doc martens, but who am I kidding, I am a doc lover. I wear them absolutely every day, rain or shine. They are my go to shoe. I wear them with everything, cocktail dresses, jeans, shorts and ball dresses. I have other pairs of shoes, and they get to see the light of the day maybe once every fortnight or so. So four pairs isn't that unreasonable is it? Realistically, I will probabl
y have a huge collection of doc martens by the time I am 80 and too old and wrinkly to do up my own laces. I'll still be wearing them then though.

It's been really sunny lately and I'm really happy. Loving being able to wear bare legs, but as you see from these photos they are so pale! When I was looking in the mirror I thought for a few seconds that I was wearing white stockings and then remembered that they were my own legs! Now that's sad.

Hope everybody has a good weekend.

P.s Thanks for the shoes mum!

Ahhh I love your dress (+ skirt?) so much! Where is it from?

I have vintage floral docs that are the best thing ever, I will post about them asap haha. Also I wore white tights the other day and people thought they were just my legs. How shameful.

love the sheer skirt layered over! I don't think I could pull off docs, but yay for super versatile shoes :)

Georgia- the dress is actually a really long floral dress I found at savemart and fitted to myself/shortened and then added the ribbon and sheer mesh to. I love it, but it doesnt get much wear as it is so pretty and formal. Sadly the case with a lot of my clothes

Love the shoes Lulu. They would go well with my jeans and tee uniform. Ha ha. I know, what a waste! hence I stick to black docs when I have them but I think I could be tempted to try cherry red. Would have matched my wedding dress! Love your style and the first photo especially is just beautiful!
