Whenever I venture out into the desert, I feel like I always need to have a desert and/or Southwest-inspired outfit. I recently did the Route 66 Relics Tour again, where the legendary Painted Desert Trading Post was the last stop. I wanted to make a fun t-shirt for the occasion, so I decided to take a photo of the PDTP that I took last year, added “Painted Desert Trading Post or Bust!” and voila! Thanks to Ashley at TNT Shirts, I was able to get one made right before I left for my trip. I paired it with my Route 66-themed tapestry vest. In keeping with my Southwest-y ensemble, I added my colorful shorts and my awesome vintage hat that I bought from the sweet Dawn Bell of Coronation Vintage. It reminds me of the black hat Georgia O’ Keefe wore in many of her photos. She has since become one of my inspirations, especially after visiting the museum in Santa Fe. To top off the outfit, I wore my special vintage Squash Blossom necklace. It had been a “financial goal” of mine to get one when I could afford it. The time came and I bought it from a lovely dealer I had met during the Round Top shows.

During this Route 66 trip (and unlike last year) I finally had decent hiking boots! They kept my feet dry and sturdy (especially when I opted to climb the mesa to get a better shot of the PDTP).

As soon as I saw this fun red 1960s shift dress hanging on a rack at work, I knew I had to wear it. I loved the vibrant red fabric with large buttons; not to mention the sweet off-center Peter Pan collar. I also knew exactly how I wanted to style it. My aunt had given me a really cool pair of vintage 80s earrings that I actually had to change from pierced to clip-on, but thanks to Hobby Lobby, I was able to fix them easy-peasy. They are really quirky, with one earring saying, “I Might Go To K-Mart,” whereas the other says, “I Might Go To Saks.” If I had to choose, I’m going to Saks!

In keeping with my “edgy Mod” look, I threw on my vintage gloves, and added my 80s quilted cylinder purse and leopard print heels. The oversized sunglasses and hat (worn backwards) completed the outfit perfectly.
