Keep your eyes on the road please.

 leggings: style lately   l   boots: modcloth   l   hoodie: brandy melville
 

Yesterday I did some cross-country skiing with some people from my internship. On the way back, a few other girls and I got a ride from this 50-something year old lady. She was a sweet lady. But her driving... oh man. Her driving was scary. Did she text and drive? No. But she did do that thing where she would look directly at the person talking to her. While she was driving! Ahhhh scary. Every time she did that I felt like screaming "you don't need to look at the person you're talking to! just keep your eyes on the road!!!.. please." I mean really, those continuous 3 seconds where she would take here eyes off the road were just terrifying. Especially while we drove down those swervy mountains. Once I got home, I told husband this story and he got kinda upset that I didn't say something. And now that I think back on it, I really should have. 

So people, the lesson of the day is to keep your eyes on the road. Seriously.

  2. OMG. That is scary, it's times like that when you wonder how they've made it this long driving like that. On a brighter note, you are looking warm, comfy and chic!

  10. The movies are always like that, have you noticed? It's like some crazy action scene and the driver's just having a friendly chat with his seat companion! Wtf, really!

  11. You are adorable. So glad you stopped by my blog today b/c I have loved looking at your sweet space here!

    I had to LOL at your story...reminds of the time I rode in a car with a deaf lady who read lips...she could speak clearly, but when she was looking at you while you talked it was a rather scary thing! I'm surprised she didn't get pulled over for drunk driving!

  12. Such an adorable outfit! It's so perfect for winter :) Those leggings are so fun. And that story reminds me SO much of my mom! She is the worst for doing that when she's driving and she never listens to us when we tell her to keep her eyes on the road haha! It's actually the worst

  36. Awww man the lady was so sweet to drive you guys but I imagine it must have been TERRIFYING in that situation! And it's not easy to tell her to keep her eyes on the road coz she might interpret it as rudeness :P

    Loving your leggings btw. The patterns and colour are both GORGEOUS.

  40. Jumping shots are deceptively difficult to do, aren't they? I love your boots - they look great for snow. And sometimes it's the old people who are the craziest!

    Haha, cute jumping pic fail photo!
    Ah, I get really conscious of drivers when I'm in a car - I also make sure to take in the car's surroundings as well, just in case I notice something that someone else doesn't and can point it out. Haha. ^^
