Styling The Lazy Oaf x Dr Martens Boots!

6th April 2018

Hey everyone!

So I’m sure if you follow me on ANY of my social medias, you will have seen I have well and truly fallen for a pair of boots. Or should I say two pairs… It’s the second Lazy Oaf x Dr Martens collaboration! I did more than adore the first collaboration but just couldn’t afford them at the time. Not that I can really say I can afford these either honestly but I just could not let them go. I ordered both pairs and was going to send the pink ones back but decided to shoot these outfits first. After seeing the pictures, the tag somehow magically fell off so I COULDN’T send them back. Oh no, what a shame.

I’ve been wanting to do some fashion posts on here for ages and I thought these boots were a great place to start seeing as I want to show them off. I also haven’t been too well over the past week or so and have dropped a few lbs and I’m not going to lie, I’m feeling pretty fabulous (on the outside lol). So here are a few outfits I put together to go with my gorgeous new boots! Hope you enjoy…

Black Lazy Oaf x Dr Martens Boots

Outfit details: 
Tartan trousers: “Courtney” – Love Too True

Cropped striped top: River Island

My idea for this outfit was for it to be more of a casual one. I’m a sucker for anything tartan and personally I think it’s wearable all year round depending on what you pair it with! I bought these trousers just after Christmas and haven’t worn them a lot as the material is quite thin so they’re much more suitable for spring/summer wear. I love pairing clashing prints with trousers like this aswell. Don’t get me wrong, not all odd prints fit together, I don’t want to look like a TOTAL odd one. I think this little striped number goes really well with the tartan though and the double-soled shoes finish off the edginess of the outfit.

Outfit details:
Mesh La Liberte Top: River Island

Red Faux Leather Studded Skirt: Pretty Little Thing

I got this mesh top back last year in a River Island sale for about £7 and it’s honestly one my favourite things to wear. I’ve also had a bit of a weird obsession with red faux leather items recently. I think you have to be really careful sometimes though as red faux leather can look quite cheap and tacky if you pick the wrong styled item or wear it with the wrong thing. Black is much more of a safe bet but I feel like red is a lot more sultry and daring which is great! You can also get this skirt in black and pale pink, It’s so pretty and comfy I kind of want all three… I think these boots look great with fishnet tights as it gives a cute but rocker edge to an outfit.

Pink Lazy Oaf x Dr Martens Boots

Outfit details:
Girls Bite Back t-shirt: Nasty Gal

Pink and green plaid mini skirt: Topshop

I’m not going to lie, if I’d seen myself in this outfit a year ago, I probably would’ve metaphorically vomited. Pink hasn’t been very “me” since I was about 11 years old and my mum picked my clothes but over the past 6 months or so I haven’t been able to stop buying it! (Is the blogging world getting to me?) I even have a pink faux leather jacket. Admittedly I did sew a massive skeleton middle finger onto the back of it to punk it up a bit but still, IT’S PINK! I love the combination of the green and pink on the plaid and I just had to buy this cute slogan tee when I saw it. I’m SO excited to wear this outfit in the Summer although the skirt really is mini so I’ll have to look for some little shorts to wear underneath it if I’m wearing it without tights. Any recommendations of where to get these are welcome.

Outfit details:

Black and white striped long sleeve & Printed mom jeans: Monki

I feel like I’m constantly on the Monki site recently. They are KILLING it with their original and odd designs and I’m living for it. These are the most expensive but the most comfy jeans I have ever owned and I have gotten an unbelievable amount of wear out of them already. As a size 12/14 woman who is bottom heavy I was always self-conscious about the fact that mom jeans might accentuate my bigger parts but I actually feel really confident and comfortable in these. You can find a striped top like this anywhere really but I love the soft material of Monkis and how well they wash. I think the pink Lazy Oaf x Dr Martens go so well with more plain outfits like this aswell as more colourful ones. It really spruces them up and adds a pop of colour where you wouldn’t expect it.

Wearing the Lazy Oaf x Dr Martens Boots Odd

Outfit details:
Girl gang cropped top: River Island

Heart cut out mom jeans: Monki

More Monki goodness, these are my favourite jeans in the world. They’re the first pair of blue denim jeans I’ve owned in YEARS and I absolutely love them. I love wearing fishnet tights underneath them just to give the heart cut out parts an added edge to them and so my ankles look cute when I roll them up. They’re a neutral colour so I think they’re perfect to wear with odd shoes and they can easily go from cute as hell to punky by doing so. I also paired them with a black and pink slogan top as I thought the contrast would be a bit more subtle rather than going all out with something super funky or edgy. I’d love to do posts about the more edgy/punky/gothic clothes I have though so that could be a possibility in the near future when I’ve nailed this whole “fashion post” and confidence in posing thing.

Thanks for sticking with me and reading my first proper fashion post, I don’t think it was too much of a disaster? Hopefully the beautiful boots distracted you from any bits that were a bit tragic or my slightly awkward poses. Also, a huge shout out to wonderful Jake for taking these photos for me and only whining a minimal amount. Are you as in L O V E with the Lazy Oaf x Dr Martens boots as I am?

    I LOVE THIS WHOLE POST ALICE!!! You have amazing style and I love how you’ve paired everything together – the shots are beautiful and I love how your outfits aren’t mainstream! I think pink gets the better of everyone but you deffo don’t wear it like most bloggers ?
    I’m also obsessed with both pairs of these DM’s – I’ve only got my plain black pair and wear them to death, so the tag “accidentally falling off” (actually laughed out loud at that ?) shouldn’t matter, I’m sure you’ll get loads of wear and they’ll pay for themselves in the end!!
    Can’t wait to see more fashion posts! ❤️❤️❤️

    I saw these on your instagram the other day and was wondering how you’d choose! Both was definitely the right answer ?. I love all of these looks but the one with the pink skirt is perfection x


    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Hehe I think everyone has been waiting for the verdict but anyone who knows me will know I am too much of a sucker to give either up… Thank you so much! ? X

  10. Bexa says:

    Oh my! I love Dr Martens and I love your style Alice! You look fabulous in the photos ?. I can’t decide whether I prefer the pink or black DMs, they are both awesome, I really like how you have chosen one of each, very cool! Fab post girl! ? xx PS. I want your entire wardrobe!

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Hehe thank you so so much girl that means a lot! I couldn’t decide either, hence me keeping both ? It’s not all as nice as this, I wear a lot of PJs ? Xx

  11. Oh my god, girl, you killed this entire post?! You look bloody incredible in every picture, and Jake has done an amazing job capturing all your beauty.. ? I adore the boots – I was so tempted to order the black ones, but I just didn’t know if I would get that much wear out of them, especially for the price! I am obsessed with the ‘Girls Bite Back’ and the ‘Girl Gang’ tshirt, and the red skirt looks incredible, and the heart-shape cut out jeans are super cute – I just can’t get over you or this post, and I can’t wait for more fashion posts from you! ? You hair looks bloody amazing here as well, I desperately need to save up and get mine dyed, and I’m tempted to take your picture to my hairdresser as inspiration.. ???‍♀️

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

You’ve made me feel like a queen xo yeah they really are up there price-wise but they’re perfect for me and my style so I thought why not!

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Aww thank you so much! I am excited to rough the pink ones up a bit as they’re too clean for my liking at the moment haha! Xxx

  13. These are so cute! I love the photos where you wear one of each colour, I could actually go out like that lol but I do prefer the black version because the heart is pink and we can see the heart shaped buckles more 😀


  14. You’ve gone above and beyond in this post showcasing the shoes in so many outfits! I’m a sucker for anything pink so the pink boots are mt favourite out of the two, although the black ones will be able to be paired with everything! I also have the red faux leather skirt, isn’t it just so comfy!?

  21. Kayla says:

    I adore your style!!! I’m not one for fashion blogs if I’m completely honest, because my style is more edgy alternative/punk/goth, and I’ve just never seen a post that shares the same love for edgy fashion…UNTIL NOW! I would love to read more posts about your style! Keep em coming girlfriend, you look great!!

    Hi! i just stumbled across your post online and i have to say i love how you’ve styled these boots! The black Monki mom jeans are to die for (I’ve seen them styled a couple of different ways and I love them all! I just couldn’t pull them off with my body shape and height lmao!)
    I was just wondering if you could clarify the fit of the boots, are they true to size or do they run big or small? Its been ages since I’ve owned any Docs, and the last pair wasn’t in the size I am now anyway! Could you recommend based on like a pair of common sneakers like Stan Smiths?

    Thanks so much!! xx

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Thank you very much! They’re so comfy, I’m actually wearing them as I’m writing this haha! I’d say this particular range is ever so slightly a little bigger but it’s nothing noticeable. I usually fit snugly in a size 5 in DMs and these are a tiny bit roomy which is good as it means they don’t rub as much as usual! I’m not sure what Stan Smiths are sorry but DMs are pretty true to size in general and once they’re broken in they mold really nicely to your feet! I’m a size 5 in both Vans and DMs if that helps!? Xx

    OBSESSED with these boots, love how you’ve styled them!! I’ve blogged about my latest DM purchase here, check it out if you fancy!?
