ROAD TRIP SERIES: JEAN DRY LAKE BED!
Here we go again! Back in the car, doing a bit more off-road driving (while crossing my fingers we don't get stuck somewhere for the second time), visiting the well known Jean Dry Lake Bed in Sloan, Nevada. This time, this trip felt more like a backyard outing because this place is super close, only 45 minutes away. It didn't require any long preparation like the previous road trips.
As the name hints, this is an open dry lake. It's very popular when it comes to photo-shoots, videos or films being shot there. For example, "The Hangover" contains some scenes from this dry, yet magical spot.
It was my first time visiting it! I love the simplicity, yet the raw beauty of it. Like the ocean, the eyes see beyond the horizon! Only difference is that the ground here has endless dry spots, which feel like they would crack any minute with every step. How cool is that?
Also, on the way to Jean Dry Lake Bed you can make a stop at the Seven Magic Mountains because they're very close to one another. Practically sisters!!! hahaha! This way you'll explore two very popular locations in Nevada in one go!
For this trip, I'm super EXCITED because I actually got to style two various boho summer looks! Having combined travel and style in one (two of my favorite things), makes me extra HAPPY! I'm ready to share this happiness with you!
The first outfit is something I wear often during the summer...a crop top with any high-waist kind of bottom. I like changing it up from skirts to jeans and even shorts on a daily basis. In this case, I went straight for my ripped mom-jeans,which are so comfy. So comfy that I don't know why I've never been into mom jeans before. I guess, I never thought I could pull them off!
As for the crop top, which is in fact a bikini top. Always got to be prepared for the desert heat. You never know when you might come across a hidden pond. hahaha! Unfortunately, there wasn't one in sight this time, but hey, there's always next time. I have high hopes that our next road trip will involve splashing in the water!
And just like that summer boho looks always involve some kind of fringe for me. Guys, I honestly can't stay away from it!!! Double doze of suede and fringe is the way to go. I've got the light jacket and clutch to make the dry lake feel more alive, playful like a summer concert.
The next BEST thing to wear in the dry desert is a loose, lightweight dress. Won't you agree? Exactly, why I went for this dress of mine. I've forgotten how good it feels to go road tripping in a dress. From now on, I'm thinking to stick to a casual dress...a tank top or a strappy loose style.
With a simple dress like the one I'm wearing here, I mostly like to focus on the accessories. I enjoy stacking and layering everything...rings, bracelets and necklaces. It gives the outfit more personality! In the end, that's what matters right? Personality over looks!!!
Which look do you like better...dress or bikini top+jeans?
I hope you enjoyed this sweet, short and fun road trip to Jean Dry Lake Bed! Have you been here?
