Happy Easter Sunday everyone!! I hope you guys are all having a relaxing and fun filled day today. I personally don't really do much for Easter, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying Easter candy! (especially peeps!)
You guys are probably wondering what the title is all about now haha... Well seeing as I am 17 and college is just ~ a year away, my mom thought it would be important to start teaching me how to drive! She always used to be against me learning to drive while in high school, but something must have changed her mind. She asked if I wanted to go out driving with her car yesterday and of course without hesitation, I said, "yes!"
It was kinda scary at first since I had never even sat in the driver's seat before with the car on! I didn't even know what the foot pedals were... This is going to sound stupid, but I thought there were only 2 foot pedals, not 3. Apparently there is a brake, a "go," and a clutch. My mom was scared that I wouldn't be used to which pedal was which so she spent the first half hour teaching me how to use the brakes =0
We went driving for a good 90 minutes around a huge parking lot near our house. My mom drove there and then we switched positions. After learning how to use brakes, my mom taught me how to turn. She was still scared of me hitting the "go" pedal, but it was soon required if I was to make it around the parking lot. I went from driving 3 mph to 6mph! (lol, I think I can run faster than that)
I was actually shocked at how fast I picked up turning skills. When I though about driving, I thought it would be hard, but in reality it wasn't that bad. I did have trouble with the steering wheel in the beginning, but I quickly got used to using it with the help of my mom!
Being as nervous as I was, I even asked my mom what to wear to drive! My mom kinda laughed and told me to wear whatever I wanted as long as it wasn't a dress or heels. Therefore, I chose to wear this outfit that you see above. I wore my navy blue top that I picked up last fall. This top is super cute and I love wearing it. It was a lace knit shirt which means it had what looked like cut out designs on it. Under the shirt, I wore a cami in the same navy blue color. For my jeans, I wore some comfortable gray jeggings and finished my outfit off with brown boots.
I also wore some jewelry to go driving which I kinda regret now. My necklace was okay and didn't bother me when I drove. However, my bangles made it hard for me to use the steering wheel. They were moving up and down my arm and I got distracted trying to fix them. I eventually decided to take them off.
For any of you learning to drive, I recommend staying away from bracelets while you are learning, especially if they would distract you.
This was quite the fun experience and I definitely can't wait to go driving again next weekend! The 90 minutes passes by really fast! In fact, we lost track of time for a while until we noticed that the sun was setting!
Here is a photo of my mom and I after our driving lesson! We positioned ourselves perfectly so the light from the sun would hit us perfectly!

Do you guys remember your first driving experience?
How do you feel about lace knit tops? I personally love them! They are cute and can be easily dressed up or down.
