I've had these shoes since my grade school days and I remember wanting them soooo badly. I wore them for a year and put them away. Since returning from university, I have debated many times to let these go but didn't have the heart to because I remember how happy I was to finally get them, and also they are in really, really good condition.
This year, I made a decision to wear them. I brought them to my own home (they were living at my parents' place) and began a Pinterest board of outfit ideas. On the weekends, I dabbled in some casual outfits, mostly consisting of jeans and a sweatshirt, but last week, I debuted them for the first time in an actual, thought-out outfit for work.
Using my Stylebook App, and inspirations from Pinterest, I put together this outfit:
Other outfits I plan to wear them with are:
You'll note another mustard yellow cardigan =) Bonus! They match the signature stitching of my Dr. Martens perfectly.
I am SO happy that I decided to keep these and am over-joyed that I will finally be able to enjoy them fashionably, and not part of a school uniform.
I also have the boot version and am working on outfits for those too - stay-tuned.... =)
