If you get the title reference, you'll understand when I say, no, I didn't go shopping. What I did do was get in my car and gallivant off to the city of Palm Springs. With my adventure partner/photographer by my side we set off to find some fun, underrated parts of the small desert town.
To our pleasant surprise, we found a quaint vintage car shop/museum. Upon finding this gem, I became right at home. Being that my dad builds all sorts of car engines, I grew up surrounded by spare parts, clouds of engine fumes, and all the grease and grime that comes with that. Sadly, I didn't retain any of the car knowledge that I should have but I still get giddy when I'm in the presence of these beauties. I'm a total vintage car and hot rod fan. I'm more impressed by a revamped 1960's Mustang than the newest Ferrari (although I still wouldn't turn down a ride in said Ferrari).
What better ensemble to sport next to these old school classics than something equally as funky and vintage. If you've gone through my earlier posts, you may have seen this fiery red, snake print jumper. When I first wore this piece, it was 100+ degrees out and the thought of wearing actual clothing was daunting to say the least. Now that the temps are cooling down and the Fall vibes are starting to settle in, I wanted to transition my favorite summer item into something I could keep wearing through to the next season. You can never go wrong with an awesome vintage denim jacket when layering for Fall. What drew me to this specific one was the nostalgic Looney Tunes graphic across the back of it. Top off the look with some simple mules and a sleek faux leather bag and you've got yourself a fun look with plenty of character.
