how i style DM's for #standforsomething

i think it's important to stay true to who you are. i know it sounds cheesy and a cliché answer but for me i cannot emphasise it enough. only for the past couple of years have i finally started to be myself and think "sod it" to anyone who has something negative to say about it. i refuse to make this post into a sob story because that isn't my intention but now i've stopped trying to please everyone else in order to be accepted i've been 100 times happier. to stay more focused to blogging, i've said it on my twitter page before that if i had listened to what people had said when i first started blogging i would have given up a long time ago. people are narrow minded and enjoy seeing people fail so learning to look past it is the most important thing. just remember they are not worth it.

on thursday evening i attended the event for the opening of the new dr. martens store in newcastle. i am going to do a more in depth post so don't worry that will be coming soon. i always say it but when i wear chunky boots i always dress overly 'girly' to even it out. that is why my missguided dress was a perfect choice as the lace detailing is stunning and i love the 3/4 sleeve length, such a bargain too at £34.99. i do have a full front shot on my instagram if you would like to see what it looks like. i hope you like it, and i'd love to know how you'd style your DM's too so please let me know.

  1. You look grear. i always love the clash of a Girly dress and chunky boots. I've never felt like I could pull off doc martins but I love some if the Chelsea style boots they have and I've always wanted a floral pair of docs. I will have to check out the store next time I'm in store.

  9. I love how you've put this outfit together, I tend to do the same if I'm wearing chunky shoes, I always feel the need to girl it up. Definitely agree with you about just being yourself, it makes blogging much more fun when your just posting about the things you enjoy.

  18. This dress and the DM's is like my absolute perfect outfit and you pull it off so well! You've definitely made me like missguided again after I had a little phase of going off it but you've got some really nice pieces from missguided recently

  21. The dress is so lovely, it seems to be a higher price point for missguided so is the quality better?
