Dr. Martens on Repeat

If you’ve seen my other posts you may have noticed how much I love Dr. Martens. I have shown three pairs out of the four I own so far, and if I could I’d get more. The simple designs make them versatile, yet they are very unique; and the quality is amazing. My black derby shoes from them are around 20 years old, handed down from my mom, and the only flaws are some scuffs in the front.

Moving on to my first outfit I wore my red derby shoes. They’re always the stars of my outfits.

I matched them with a red hair bow and an all black outfit. The sweater was given to me by my mom. I’m so glad too because it looks steampunk-ish, one of my big fashion inspirations.

The changing room mirror will have to do…

You may be able to better see the peplum from this angle. It gives a really nice shape and adds a simple flare. I would have worn pants instead to go with the “prince” look my hair had dried into (it looked slightly slicked back when I woke up) but I decided against it.

The floral print wasn’t the focus this time…

On to the second outfit: I wore my ribbon laced boots, a striped cardigan, a burgundy dress, and a black hat with a bow on it. The striped socks sadly couldn’t be seen under my boots.

I tried working on my flat lays again since I had already put on my pajamas before I remembered to take a picture. How does it look?

My plushies like to hang around my window sill.

My makeup for the day consisted of solely a tinted lip gloss. It makes the outfit look more together, in my opinion. I was thinking of adding some color to my cheeks but I blush very easily – it ranges from a rosy color to a bright red – so that was also skipped.

You’ll definitely be seeing more of my Dr. Martens in the future! If I’m lucky, maybe I can wear my favorite buckled boots some time (they remind me of American McGee’s Alice). I hope you liked the outfits and stick around for more!
