I never thought this day would come, I am now the very proud owner of a pair of Dr. Martens! Admittedly these are floral and look more like a pair of brogues but they are still massively out of my comfort zone. When I wear things that scare me slightly, I pair them with old favourites, things that I know and love and so a colourful skirt and my trusty white top were pulled out of the wardrobe.

Coral is definitely one of those colours that completely lifts your mood, I wear it all year round but it looks best with a bit of sunshine and this Max Factor lipstain is the perfect shade of coral, perfect for disguising a complete lack of sleep too!
Another chunky necklace to add to my collection, the colours are really bright in real life and the rope style chain adds a more interesting detail...
I completely blame Claire and Kate for these glorious shoes, I admired them both in their Docs and they persuaded me to try these out and boy am I glad I did! I was nervous when they arrived as I had heard all kinds of horror stories about how difficult they are to break in but actually, so far, I have had no trouble *fingers crossed*
I bought them as I was looking for some ankle boots to wear in this less than lovely weather but everything I was looking at seemed so wintry and I'm not ready for that just yet! I love the floral print on these and the rubber sole makes them perfect for splashing through puddles [yes I am actually 5 years old!]
Although they are something completely different, I loved wearing these shoes, I felt much more confident and I felt like a bit of a rebel (well as rebellious as you can be in white floral shoes!) when I was wearing them. Lucky (!) that it is such miserable weather at the moment as I will have plenty of chances to wear them!
Do you own a pair of Docs? What shoes make you feel confident?
