I can’t believe 2018 is almost over!
Where did all the time go?!
To distract myself from thinking about that… Here’s a couple casual outfits I wore this weekend. I’m wearing shorts in November people! It’s so strange. I grew up in this type of weather, but after nearly 10 years in NYC, I’ve forgotten how warm it actually stays in LA around the holidays. I’m not complaining though.
BTW, I’m really enjoying this Lo and Son’s bag. It seems to be the perfect size for every occasion, and can be dressed up or down very easily. I love the little string that attaches to my keys.
This weekend, I had dinner with my family for my mom’s and brother’s birthdays, hung out with an old friend who was back in town, started doing some light Christmas shopping, and went to the car dealerships to test drive the Kia Rio Hatchback and the Honda Fit.
I like both cars (they are both simple, practical cars with good gas mileage), but I couldn’t find the trim level and color that I want. Apparently the Honda factory was flooded in the tsunami over the summer, creating a shortage of Fits. And surprisingly the Rio hatchback is sold out everywhere as well. I’ve never seen the Kia Rio hatchback on the road before, ever, and yet they are selling like hotcakes!
For the last few months, I’ve been borrowing the BF’s car to get to work. But very soon I will need my own car. Now I’m considering getting a used Buick Encore. They’re really cute and feel luxurious without being overpriced. But who wants to drive a Buick nowadays?! (me? lol).
I considered the Prius for a while, but my brother who owns one himself, advised me against it because the steering feels loose and overall the car feels dinky and unsafe to drive. A friend of mine also has one and she says the brakes are bad. Anyway, if you know about cars, I’d appreciate any advice.
Switching gears a bit. I received that black dress from Hackwith Design House that I mentioned a couple posts back, and while there was nothing wrong with it, I wasn’t in love with it on my frame. It felt like one of those dresses that need to be worn with heels in order to look right, and I don’t wear heels anymore. I sent it back immediately.
