Joshua Tree is about a 40 minute drive from Palm Springs and is named named after the Joshua trees (yucca brevifolia) that cover the park. Itâ€™s a popular destination for camping, hiking and climbing but Iâ€™m happy to keep it simple and drive on through, stopping along the way to admire the otherworldly landscape.
Ever since I visited Joshua Tree last year for the first time, it has been on my mind constantly.
I probably couldnâ€™t stop thinking about it for two reasons: 1. It seems to be popping up in every fashion brandâ€™s lookbooks and plenty of magazine spreads right now so itâ€™s hard to avoid. 2. It was like no other place Iâ€™ve ever seen. I totally get the allure and why so many creatives feel inspired to create after visiting.
I stopped by a few days ago, wearing my favorite new dress embroidered with tattoo-inspired patterns paired with these gray platform boots that feel like the right balance between goth and Stormtrooper.
