These boots are made for walkin` ..and styling.
I present the first part out of four of our "how to style your Dr. Martens" look book, a collaboration between me and my blogger bff, Althea. Our love for the classic utilitarian footwear had us gallivanting through the city donning clothes that define why Dr. Martens shoes are a must-have.

This has been a photo shoot one year in the making. If not for her leaving the country to live in New Zealand (I'll miss you), we won't even get our asses up and schedule for a shoot.
We named this look book "Flora and Fauna" because her daisies represent the flora side and my cheetah belt represent the fauna side. And, okay, we met Andre and Daryl Chang that day (I will blog about that separately) and we noticed that Andre was wearing this eagle neckpiece and Daryl was in head-to-toe floral which resulted in me and Althea's never-ending "omg, we match!" statements.
Althea's look for the first leg of our Dr. Martens diaries is leaning towards the quirky and fearless side while I'm channeling the classic, edgy, head-to-toe all-black look. Final verdict: we may or may not go to a music festival in these (provided I ditch the leather jacket??).
Hope you enjoy this first quarter of our collaboration as much as we do!
