ootd: how to wear combat boots

today's post is all about combat boots! i found these beautiful little green doc martens at my local buffalo exchange (upper scale thrift store) and they were over 50% less than the original price and already worn in! i bought some a few years ago at christmas because i've always liked the way they look but they're so uncomfortable when you first get them that i couldn't find the strength to keep them long enough to break them in. thus, the best shoes ever! here's a few ways i like to style them...

 outfit #1 "comfy"- plaid shirt: urban outfitters (awhile ago but you can find something similar anywhere!), jeans: urban outfitters (the most comfy jeans i have ever owned in my entire life. i have literally fallen asleep in them they're so comfy and i think they look really good) shoes: doc martens (<- link to buy them new), tank top: nordstrom, necklace: american apparel

this is a good outfit for fall because plaid is really in and the pantone color of the year is emerald and green is also really in for fall! i'd wear this outfit to school (because i obviously did) or to hang out with friends!

outfit #2 "dressy"- peplum top: nordstrom, jeans and boots: same from above, bag: dooney and bourke (my mom's old bag), necklace: brighton(?), red lip: christian dior holiday red lipstick (courtesy of my mom)

i went to dinner with my sister at breadwinner's (greatest staff, might i add) and we did a little shopping afterwards (hi, nordstrom's dressing room! thanks for having a nice mirror area!) this outfit isn't too dressy but it isn't casual. the red lip added a little snazziness to the outfit, something i wasn't even planning on, i just love a good red lip.

"whoa hey that's me"
our waiter at dinner actually asked me if i worked at the mall (sephora, nordstrom, h&m, or lush) and thought i was of legal drinking age in this outfit so it definitely made me look more mature! i'll take it!

what is your favorite trend for fall? how do you feel about different lip colors?
how would you wear combat boots?
