I believe, I’m the luckiest person in the world, like everybody else but, I’ve my reasons. Every week its a new place, new outfit, new story, with my best friend for life. We find some place beautiful, and we get lost. As Friday dawns, our adventure begins! Two days of sheer magic, some days adrenaline, and other days relaxation! Its a blend of pure bliss, and love! We have slowly mastered the art of traveling, sure we have our constraints but, at the end we have an amazing story to tell. Today I’m going to tell you all one such story to this breathtaking destination – White Sands!!
“Rising from the heart of the Tularosa Basin is one of the world’s great natural wonders – the glistening white sands of New Mexico. Great wave-like dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert, creating the world’s largest gypsum dunefield. White Sands National Monument preserves a major portion of this unique dunefield, along with the plants and animals that live here”
Located 16 miles southwest of Alamogordo, a small town in New Mexico, is this picturesque location. We flew to El Paso as, it was an hour drive to White Sands. It is closer to El Paso than it is to Albuquerque. Weather can be hard to predict in the desert, and summer temperatures can exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit. This means the possibility of heat related illnesses increase so, we decided to go past White Sands, and let the temperature cool down a bit, and we made our way to a mountain town called Ruidoso. It is at an Elevation of 6,920 feet due to which, it is comparatively cooler. Ruidoso has some really good eateries, and due to its Mexican influence, you get to taste authentic, homemade Mexican food. We had the best homemade Tacos, in a little home run restaurant called Porky’s. After having satisfied our tummies, and relaxing for a while, we drove back to the most awaited destination of ur trip. We reached there almost close to the sunset so, we got to witness the ombre lit sky during the sunset, and the moonrise. Moonrise is definitely a must when you visit White Sands because, the desert is lit up by the moonlight, and it is just too beautiful to miss. Stargazing is one more thing to be your checklist when you’re visiting this place. We got lucky as, it was a full moon night, and we had a quiet, and peaceful time. Since, it is a desert, the temperature drops real quick so, one needs to be mindful of these fluctuations before planning a visit. But hey! It is the most amazing destinations I’ve ever been, and definitely one of my top destinations in my travel book.
Moving on to my outfit..the free spirited atmosphere around me, elevated my spirits, and my heart was levitating. My inner child wanted to play in the sand, my toes wanted to dance to sound of the desert wind, and I couldn’t help but, rejoice every minute of my time spent there. My outfit was inspired by the desert, free spirited, and just like the sand dunes, dynamic. A skirt is one such piece of clothing, you can play around with, and you can let you play with your creativity with a skirt to create some unique looks. I wore a blue maxi skirt underneath a floor length, navy blue, floral tunic for a bohemian look. To complement the bohemian theme, I accessorised it with a tribal coin necklace, and a tribal inspired earrings. So, here is the complete look against the picturesque background, I totally enjoyed my trip, and I hope you guys enjoyed reading my story. Give it a thumbs up if you did, and I’ll be back with more such exciting posts. Have a great week lovelies ♥
