Nowhere, California

stolen brother's beanie, rayban aviators, vintage sweater, gifted dress, mia boots

Spent this past Thanksgiving weekend on the road in search of family activities road trippin' to Arizona. First stop, Calico Ghost Town, which was not as exciting as I had anticipated it to be.  I was looking forward to a more vast and deserted town with dusty hay bales flying by and a more eerie feeling.  Lo and behold, it was another tourist attraction, sigh.  Threw on a cluster of things considered travel wear and voila- the hood rat look.  Hope everyone had an amazing weekend full of food and festivities and donned a more presentable look than I.


And in all things unrelated, a happy (belated) five years to my beloved Tran man and and and a happy (belated) one year to the blog! TY to everyone who have continuously supported and encouraged me along the way.  Truly could not have made it through the year without any of you.  I have a special personal project in the works to gift to you in celebration of both my babies' five and one year, so be sure to keep a lookout :)

I love the slouchy sweater and beanie look. There's something really 90s about it, which is just fiine by me.

Also, those photobooth pics of you two are beyond adorable! Congrats to both anniversaries!! :)

Even though it was just another touristy place, the shoot still looks amazing. You managed to capture the "ghost town" feel.

Can't believe you and your bf have been dating for 5 years! That's crazy. Congrats!

Oh, and happy birthday to your blog too :)

Yeah, I was disappointed with Calico too! Wayyyyy too touristy and overpriced. I LOVE the authentic ghost towns off the beaten path!
