Preppy in my new Mercedes

If you follow me on my socials, you might already know that I got a new car a few days ago and I finally wanted to show it to you properly. The car is a Mercedes Benz C300 4W in elegant black color. I am a huge believer in a car being the extension of one's personality and style. It doesn't mean that everybody has to rush to the nearest expensive car dealer and get a loan to pay off whatever their value their personality at. And we all know that everyone values themselves at least as a Ferrari :) But that's not what I mean... It goes beyond the make of the car. You can tell a lot about the person by the way they treat it, the color they choose and the way they behave in it. I chose a Mercedes because I am a longtime fan of the brand (in no way I am stating that it's a better or worse car than any other), I like their design and most importantly this particular model, that fits my personality and style: sleek, elegant and classy. The day I got the car I wore a preppy look, that apparently already matched my car without even knowing which one I'll get :) Tell me about the "law of attraction" :)
On a side note, I know I have been teasing you for the past half a year with a potential change in the blog structure and I have been analyzing, testing and thinking a lot about the direction I want to take. I think I finally have an idea of a slow transition and expansion, that you'll notice gradually.
As for my life, I think I am getting older, wiser and more appreciative of what I have. That's why I am always grateful to you guys for following along and being patient with my posts. Thanks for appreciating quality over quantity and always giving me your feedback.
