We are 10 days into September and honestly I’m already embracing all the Autumn vibes. Love it or hate it, the cooler weather is on the way and I’m hoarding jumpers, boots and everything pumpkin spiced ready to live my best A/W19 life.
A crucial part of my A/W wardrobe every year is boots. I own so many pairs of them at this stage but every year I just can’t help but purchase more. Honestly, I’m beginning to think I have an addiction. In my last post, I mentioned I’d added a new pair to my collection – this post isn’t about them either but keep an eye on my Youtube channel to see me unbox them in all their glory very soon. This post however, is about my very first pair of Dr Martens and the love affair we have had ever since.
I’d been wanting to add a pair of Docs to my collection for a while, and had in fact intended on purchasing the black Jadon boots until I saw this pair on ASOS back in February and knew they had to be mine. I filmed an unboxing video when they first arrived so you can see my first impressions by watching that, but in a nutshell it was love at first sight and that love affair has continued throughout the year.
I didn’t get much wear out of them during the summer months as I’d been favouring trainers and sandals but now that the colder and wetter weather is creeping back in I am SO excited to begin wearing these again. One thing that worried me with buying my first pair of Dr Martens was the breaking in process. I’d heard horror stories of blisters and bleeding feet and I really wanted to wear these on my city break to Paris for my birthday but was so worried I’d end up ruining the trip with painful feet. Luckily, the leather on the Farylle style is so super soft they required basically no breaking in whatsoever, and I managed to wear them all around Paris with no issues. I wish I could say the same for my Sinclair boots but thats a story for another time.
In true Lucy fashion, I styled them for this post with a pair of jeans, a plain off-white t-shirt and a black blazer but I’m so excited to style them with skirts, suits and dresses for the rest of this season. Do you own a pair of Dr Martens? If so what style did you go for, how did you find the breaking in process and more importantly, how would you style them? Let me know in the comments!
