what I wore : red, white and polka dottedTuesday, February 19, 2013
belt - thrifted
tights - JC Penny (similar pair)
shoes - c/o Oasap
I don't have much to say about this outfit that wouldn't be extremely repetitive of every other one of my outfit posts. Aren't these shoes fabulous? So happy I finally own this beautiful dress, it has such a lovely collar. In love with these tights. etc. But I do have some really exciting to talk about unrelated to the outfit! The girl you're looking at is now permitted to drive, with a licensed driver in the passenger seat of course. I think most of you are familiar with the fact I'm a big fraidy cat who never got her drivers license. It's been on my new year's goal list for two years running and I'm determined to make 2013 my year! On Saturday I finally went up to the BMV and took the test to get my permit. It was kind of scary. The lady behind the counter wasn't very friendly, talked way too fast and just generally left me feeling really uneasy. I sat down at the computer to take the test and bombed the first three questions. I should mention that the ones I missed were kind of unrelated to driving, in my opinion. They were things I saw in the booklet but didn't think to memorize because I honestly didn't think they'd ask me how long I'd have to go to jail for if I got a DUI. Anyway, I passed! One hour and one really bad picture later I got myself a new ID that says I can drive.
Driving still seems really weird to me, it's funny for me to think that all I had to do was pass a test on a computer and I'm allowed out on the road. Sunday we went over to the beach and I got behind the wheel for the first time. I drove around the parking lot and practiced pulling in and out of parking spots. It felt so funny. I couldn't stop laughing. But I definitely feel like in the half an hour I spent behind the wheel I learned a lot and got a lot more comfortable. I'm super stoked to practice more! I'll certainly be keeping you guys up to date on this little adventure. I look forward to conquering all my silly fears and finally being able to go places on my own. Needless to say, I'm also really excited about car shopping!
Hope you have a lovely Tuesday.
