Four Days of Gear . . .

 Saturday’s Destination: Disneyland

I always have a hard time when it comes to dressing for amusement parks. I always want to look cute, but because my feet are so “sensitive” I have to wear comfortable shoes, and usually comfortable means ugly. So all my cute outfits are generally not appropriate because they look ridiculous with a big old bubble gum tennis shoe. Anyway, this summer for trips to the amusement park, I opted for color to combat the wackness of my outfit. A bright lip and T can do wonders for the psyche!!!

Sunday’s Destination: Errands

My brother and niece stayed over Saturday night, and since we were out late, we skipped church. It got chilly that evening and I had to run a few errands so I donned my trench, grabbed my Chucks and called it a day. Simple and casual.

Monday’s Destination: Kid’s School, errands, working lunch

The heat returned, but I still needed to look decent because I had a working lunch date. I love these cropped capri pants I got @ H&M a few years back. They can dress up or down. I love wearing them with heels and a blazer, but I needed to be comfortable yet presentable for that day’s line up. I paired it with my Cynthia Rowley scoop neck T (she makes the most amazing T’s and tanks) and I was good to go from 8am-9pm. It was a Looonnngg Dayyyyyy!!!

Tuesday’s Destination: Kid’s School, Office work + Parent Teacher Conference

Wanted to look presentable for the Parent Teacher conference, but still be true to my own style. I chose my go-to H&M acid dye leggings and a studded sweater I found at Marshall’s. Marshall’s and TJ maxx are goldmine’s for me. They never fail me!

Street Style Obsession: Mini Cooper Countryman . . . LOVE!!!

2012 Mini Cooper Countryman

I LOVE THIS CAR!!! Okay, so I usually don’t post about stuff like this, but, I love beautiful things, and lately I find my head turning every time I see one of these beefed up Mini Cooper’s. I always thought the Mini was a cute car, but the size never really appealed to me on a realistic level. I just couldn’t imagine myself driving the freeways daily, in something that looked as if it could fit underneath an 18 wheeler with no problem. . . enter the Mini Cooper Countryman. It is sporty, rugged and still compact, but larger than previous models. I still have two kiddies under the age of 7 so, I doubt I would take any long trips with them in this car, but I think it would be great for the errands, drop offs and pick ups that consume my days. With current gas prices being what they are, the MPG looks really appealing to me as well. Average MPG for the Countryman is 27 / City / 35 Hwy (a lot better than my FX, which comes in at a whopping 14 / City / 20 Hwy. . . wait, that can’t be right . . . ! ) I really love my car, but for the first time, “down sizing” is starting to look appealing!

MSRP for the Mini Cooper Countryman is $21,750 – $27,050
