Joshua Tree, California, USA

Desert Vibes

Took another trip out to Joshua Tree recently, and the second visit was possibly even more magical than the first. LA is definitely lucky to be just a short two-hour drive from this special place. It often gets quite chilly during winter in the high desert, even snowing sometimes (still preferable to a desert summer in my opinion--except that the Milky Way is best viewed during the summer) but we were blessed with perfect, cool weather. We stayed in a cute little Airbnb cabin on rural land with jackrabbits and roadrunners and this glorious Joshua Tree right in front. At night we took advantage of the prime view of the stars and tried shooting some star trails!

Long cardigan, Sole Society (sold out). Denim camp shirt, Madewell (old). White tank top, Fabletics. Olive fedora, H&M. Black skinny jeans, Gap. El Paso ankle boot, Minnetonka.


  1. Love this! :)

    Please check out my latest post, too? I'd love to hear something from you! :)

  2. It looks amazing there! Your outfit is also so cute! Love the layering and that cardigan!

  3. my favorite shot is with stars. This place sounds so cool. Sadly, we didn't discover so much of California. But it is so cool that you can just drive 2 hours and get to place that looks so exotic!

  4. I'm jealous of that night sky view that you got to experience. I've only been to Joshua Tree for a short day trip over the summer, but it sounds like you had a fun stay there this time of year. Your outfit looks amazing against that backdrop, by the way. I love the long cardigan over that denim shirt.

  12. I love the charm of this desert place. And I also adore your outfit. I love how you layer the long cardigan over the denim shirt. And your choker and hat are the perfect accessories to complete the outfit. The perfect desert look!
