{outfit} Splendid Zebra Dress & Unrelated Ramblings

Whoops! Had a bit of a dry spell for posts there, didn't we? I've had a busy past few weeks and haven't had my usual weekends to take outfit photos.  For the 4th of July we went on our annual camping trip to Vermont and this past weekend we took a last minute trip to the beach in New Jersey with Christian's brother. We took photos a couple weekends ago but then the following week was crazy so Christian didn't have time to edit them.

 

I wore this to run a bunch of errands on a Saturday morning before heading to my parents to wash and wax my new car with Dad. Yep, huuuuge update! After 11 years I finally got a new (used) car! Long story short-ish: 

 

We downgraded to 1 car in May when Christian sold his to his brother for his niece. We planned on Christian getting a(n electric) car first, but the ones he want (also used) are insanely overpriced due to shortages so he's going to wait a few months to see if they go back to their true value.  My Cobalt is 16 years old so it's not the most spritley. We had to repair it last month so it would pass an emissions test. It's also going to need new tires so we don't want to drive it much to avoid any more costly repairs/etc.

 

I've been thinking about getting a Mini since my Mom got hers years ago but never though I would actually do it. I got super lucky and found a used 2018 in the color I wanted with super low mileage and had to do it! (I wanted a purple one but they haven't made Minis in the shade I want since 2005)


Sadly this means even less clothes shopping than I'm already doing since I have a car payment for the first time in my life...YIKES! (I got the Cobalt very cheap in 2010 without a loan.) Fingers crossed I can do a few big payments and pay it off early like I did with my student loans. I'm not a fan of debt so this is very weird for me.


Dress: Splendid Zebra Print Dress (NETAPORTER

Apparently Splendid loved this print so much they made it in multiple pieces! I bought my Mom pants in this print for Mother's Day quite a few years ago, we've definitely twinned while on vacation. Shop a bunch I found below.

  1. That dress is such a cute print and I'll always like that Prada bag on you! Congrats on the new car too! :)


    Hope you are having a good weekend! Was a busy one here, I volunteered at a fundraiser today.

  2. Congrats on the new car - having to make car payments is definitely a weird feeling (I got my first car and the sprightly young age of 37 and having those payments felt very strange) but it sounds like you found something really good!
