Wearing Dr Martens

Dr Marten shoes were something that I never thought I could pull off. But that's the beauty of blogging: it gives me a chance to try things I normally wouldn't have, and I'm now an official Docs convert.

When Cloggs offered to send me a pair of classic black patent ones, I knew I'd have so much fun styling them. I immediately pictured them this pink dress and the two were a match made in fashion heaven.

Shoes - Doc c/o Cloggs

I really loved the contrast of the tough boots, with the girlier dress. The two definitely went a lot better together than I initially thought. This will definitely be a look that you'll see more rocking more of over the Summer (if it ever decides to come).

And what did I think of the Docs themselves? Well, I really liked them, and can definitely see myself wearing more of this pair in the future. I loved how they edged up my look and they're so fun to wear! So yes, officially a Docs fan right now. I'm so glad that I finally have my first pair. They're definitely a shoe that you need in your wardrobe,

Also, this probably isn't the time or place to mention this, but I had my favourite musical experience last night. I saw my musical hero, Brian Fallon (from The Gaslight Anthem and The Horrible Crowes) last night in a really amazing and intimate setting. There were about 25 people there, and we got to sit on the floor with him, while he did an acoustic set. It did set me an hour or so behind schedule for my evening events, but it was worth it. He sounded great! And yes, I was that close to him. No more than half a metre.

And obviously, there's no point taking a normal picture when meeting your hero. I made him make a funny face!

How would you wear a pair of Docs?

I love Doc Martins. I used to wear them loads when I was a teenager with black tights and a dress. I have considered getting another pair as they are so easy and comfy to wear. They do so many different styles now but the classic blacks ones are definitely the best.

These look great with the pink dress. I had a knee high pair of Doc Martins when I was a teenager. I'm kinda sad that I ebayed them off now. x

Oooh, I love this look! I tried Docs but found they looked clumpy on my feet however my feet have shrunk a size or two now (strange I know) so I may have to try them again some time! Love the mixture of grunge and girly and that dress is gorgeous! :D xx

I had black patient Docs when I was at college, I wore them daily with jeans and a black t shirt - my standard student uniform! Looking back though at least I never had any 'what shall I wear?' days.
Love them styled with this pink dress. If I had a pair now I'd put them with a jersey maxi dress.

Hi Sherin! I hope you don't mind but I loved this look so much I included it in one of my posts http://slicesofstyle.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/how-to-style-boots-in-summer.html, I hope this is alright :)
