There is a very specific outfit worn by one Bella Hadid that I haven't stopped thinking about since she posted it on Instagram all the way back in April of this year:

At first it was Hadid's matching snakeskin two-piece set (by Miaou) that I instantly fell for, then it was her Dr. Martens. But this wasn't just any old pair of boots from the English footwear brand — it's an extremely chunky style, boasting close to two inches of platform sole. Anyone can wear the recognizable lug sole and transform into a total rebel, but this particular take on the label's signature eight-eye boot takes an extra dose of DGAF to wear with ease. Do I have that attitude somewhere in my bones to pull these boots off? Plus, does the extra height make them heavy? Will I find them comfortable? Besides head-to-toe snakeskin, what else can I wear with my prospective new boots?

Now that it's officially the season to  give them a try, I can finally find some answers. That is, once I have the courage to actually make a purchase in the first place.
