I wish I caught these characters' names. They were very sociable! One of the ranch hands asked B if I was picking out which one I wanted. Um, I'll take two please!

One of my favorite things to do in New Mexico is ride around the BLM land with B and his friends while they look for quail and squabble over politics. Occasionally we'll skid to a stop to double-check a possible deer sighting with binoculars or when I see something I absolutely must photograph (which is often and they're all very patient with me). I find it very relaxing to drive seemingly endlessly without seeing a soul. Very "No Country for Old Men," (hopefully) minus homicidal Javier Bardem in a Dutch Boy haircut.

Your relaxed look is as wonderful as your NYE party look. Going horseback riding sounds great right now--or just driving around. You've given inspiration on two counts then!

Christina said...

I have no sense of this part of the country. Only in movies and books as I have never actually been there myself. You make deserts seem very appealing.

Gorgeous pics, I love this laid back look!

Cool place for a photo shoot. I love old american muscle cars! I would love to import one one day, although british roads arent really made for big cars so I probably never be able to park it, lol.

The Girlie Blog said...

Love your outfit! I've never been to New Mexico but it looks like a cool place.

The Fancy Teacup said...

Adore the old west feel of this post, it evokes some nostalgia. You look so chic with the casual, laid back look. And your "No Country for Old Men" reference made me laugh.

much love.

I love the roadtrip feeling of this spread. Thanks for sharing the photos and drop by me too when you have time.

Cheers.

Pam S said...

Wow, that is some gorgeous scenery!

Thank you so much for commenting on my blog it means the world to me!

The horses are beautiful, I could never choose between such beauties, I'd be all over both of them :D

A Stylized Hysteria said...

I love the redheaded horse- she/he is so beautiful! Your pictures make me long to take a trip through the Southwest and see beautiful landscapes of America. I can imagine the hot sun and dusty roads from your great photos.

Between Laundry Days said...

Wow, what a landscape! Joe just commented that you look like you're in a Levi's or Calvin Klein editorial spread. Such great pictures!

blorange dice said...

loving those jeans on you! haha having horses would be awesome but not very practical

la petite fashionista said...

of course you don't wear sweat pants on a road trip, you're impeccably dressed casual, comfortable and chic :) LOVE your images of your trip, I've never been out West!

bestie said...

You so very rarely dress this casually and I must say I love it! Still chic as ever (;

The photos are awesome, btw.

Very 'No Country for Old Men', the scenery is stunning. And I just love that you are wearing a Munich Hofbräuhaus t-shirt.

Fashion Meets Food said...

Absolutely gorgeous pictures. I am use to the look of white stuff this was a lovely change of pace.

Artfully Awear said...

Please tell me you're not joking about the horses. I'd love to see outfit pics of you riding bareback through D.C.! Really, though, those boots are my favorites, and you are way too cool in those shades.

These photos are beautiful. I love the colors of the desert. Before seeing what jeans you were wearing, I was thinking you looked like you were in a True Religion advertisement, lol..

Love the boots here too!
