Ugly/cute

Hello! This is just going to be a quick little post to show you some new shoes I have acquired recently! I so rarely buy shoes, I genuinely think that on average I buy a pair every year, or maybe even every other year. I am incredibly picky, and also have really awkward feet (skinny size 6 and a halfs, urgh), so when I finally find a pair that I love I wear them until the soles are falling apart. As a result, my shoe collection is rather sad looking. I wear my brogues an awful lot, but I often feel like my lack of variety in the shoe department lets my outfits down. Anyway, I was lucky enough this year to be given two lovely pairs of shoes for my birthday!
I have been musing on purchasing a pair of Doc Martens for a while now, and I asked my Dad for these ones from their website. They are so cute! They have lots of floral patterns, but I feel like this is a fairly unusual one. I really like the delicate red flowers on the clunky, iconic shape and they look so cute with my frilly socks! (Of which I have bought literally six more pairs)
Before I started wearing these, I was really worried about getting blisters as I've heard they take a while to break in, but I've actually been alright! They fit really well too, which is a dream when you have difficult skinny feet like I do.
I also got another pair of shoes for my birthday, but this time from my flatmates and some of the girls I'm living with next year. They are so adorable, and I was so surprised as I didn't think they were going to get me anything! I love these, they feel quite schoolgirlesque, but a lot cooler than the hideous things I used to wear in school.
I really like the ugly vs cute dynamic these shoes have going on, I like the idea that people won't be able to work out if I'm wearing these because they're sweet or tough.
Both pairs look so adorable with socks, especially my new glittery socks! These are the lilac pair, but I also have them in blue and mint green.
