sorry, vix, i know i've been promising a new car post for ages - here are some not brilliant pics - it looks better with the roof down, but not in this weather haha..i'm still experiencing that new-car glow, and i've had it a couple of weeks now, but it does still excite me every time i drive it..i did have a bit of a dilemma when it came to thinking about a new car..i work only the other side of town to where i live, so it's not like i need a car for that, i have a pretty pink bike which i do try to make as much use of as possible on summery days..
my last car was a land rover, (my second one) perfect for carrying huge amounts of (mostly, unnecessary) stuff around with me, but also great for off-roading when it comes to car boots and guide camps, both of which feature a fair amount in my life..but, after it proved itself to be a little more than slightly unreliable (they sadly didn't make their reputation based on build-quality, it seems), i decided to broaden my horizons..which meant more choice, even further from a decision!
luckily, my dad loves to car-shop, so we did a tour of the local garages to come up with a short-list of options..and came back with the decision made, and the deal done - i just had to wait a month until it could be registered as we bought the showroom's demonstrator "/
that said, that was clearly a good decision, as the sales guy tells me that they have subsequently sold several others, which won't be ready 'til october - i mean, seriously, who want's to wait until october for their new convertible..
i think the choice of car has somethign to do with my recent love of hats - it has heated seats, which means come winter, i WILL be driving around with the roof down (provided it's not actually rainign) with the seats warmed, and wrapped up in a chunky scarf and wooly hat - i've always wanted a convertible, so better make the most of it!! :)
and to keep it topical, i was feeling fairly uninspiured this morning, so just wore the outfit i suggested in yday's post - new floral warehouse dress with the navy lace body under it, and some purple poetic licence shoe boots i wore not that long ago..
