Driving a MINI in a mini

Posted on



Top worn as dress: Zara. Slip under dress: Random.    Shades: Ray Ban.  Boots: Sam Edelman.   Lips: MAC Lady Danger (thx facebook fans for recommending it!)

The last couple of days or so were ridiculously gorgeous so Michael and I went out in the mini.   Most of you know it’s what I drive in New York.   I tell you what though, the driving here doesn’t hold a candle to London.  They (still) drive like bloody maniacs here. Plus the parking signs are so confusing which I’m convinced is a ploy for drivers to get tickets for improper parking.

Confession for you: speaking of maniacs, I drove on the wrong side of the road once, completely forgetting this isn’t England. You should’ve seen my face when I saw on-coming traffic.  Wised up fast after that.

ps. Better pictures of the dress soon.  It’s a top so I got the largest size and wore a slip and cycling shorts under it.

    Yeah I’ve driven on the wrong side on numerous occasions. Going back and forth from England to America does not help.

    Any who, until now I did not notice your fringe. I love the first image and the side profile of it.

    Lastly, great dress!

      thank you re the fringe. Ugh yea its easy to get mixed up. I’ve once in a while walked to the wrong side of the car too (drivers side)

      I live in Australia, but I am from Sweden. When my mum visited, she drove on the wrong side for a long stretch between Brisbane and Townsville…
      I am a shocking driver myself.

      I love your style and I am crazy about this dress! Hunting for a similar one right now.
