Lately I’ve been thinking about my age. I’m 31, going to be 32 this August but I don’t feel like I’m old but I don’t want to look like I’m trying too hard or acting my age. And then I got caught up looking at the Dr. Martens 1460 8 Eye boot in pink pantent McMartens tartan.
What’s wrong with that?
I had a pair of Docs when I was in the 8th grade living in New England. I rocked those boots for a few years, loving the mix of tough with girly and always lusting over a green and blue tartan plaid pair that I saw. I never got those but always hoped one day to stumble on them again and then I saw these shiny, pink patent leather plaids ones and I wanted Docs all over again.
Am I being 13? I started to think about how would I wear these now, at 31.
- The most obvious choice would be with jeans. Right now these would be absolutely perfect as an alternative to a boring snow boot. I could still slosh around in this slush since they’re patent leather and still have something bright and cheery on my feet. I love bright and colorful when the weather stinks.
- With a casual skirt as I’m transitioning into spring. I totally wear some of my calf length boots while I’m transitioning into spring and it’s not cold enough for tights but not hot enough for open toes. This would be a great accent to my favorite grey denim skirt or a khaki a-line skirt I have too.
So perhaps these will be added to my wardrobe wish list. They’re too cute to resist! What do you think?
