Dr Martens celebrated there 50th anniversary last Thursday. The boot was a creation of a guy called Dr Klaus Maertens from Munich and the Griggs an English family who owned a quality footwear company there meeting was through an ad in the classified section of a magazine together they created the Dr Marten. They were called the 1460 after the date they were launched.

The DM has come along way since it humble beginnings as a work boot and has become a must have fashion item and is now seen on models like Agyness Deyn and celebrities like Alexa Chung and Daisy Lowe. I invested in a pair last year and I love them. Spartoo have a great selection and I love the valentine rose print ones they are so on trend for the floral prints that are going to everywhere this Summer and will look fabulous teamed with either a maxi dress or a cute playsuit and the pink and white print will work with most floral prints as the print is not overly fussy. They also have an adorable girly pink pair I love the mix of the girly colour with the hardness of the DM boot. Check them out here and here

  5. I used to have a couple of pairs back in hs and college, a floral style and a bright burgandy. I thought they were so cool and so punk back then. They were definately not for everyone, but they are still incredibly cool!
