With the few weeks we have left in college, my girl friends and I decided to *YOLO* as the kids would say and embark on a 12 hour road trip to New Mexico in the middle of midterms season. Crazy, I know. But let me tell you something...it.was.worth.it.
The sole reason we took this trip to NM was to visit White Sands National Monument. Its vast landscape and beautiful sand dunes took my breath away and I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't just dreaming. The sun was beating down on us (literally my body was on fire--ok not literally but you know what I mean) and we caught the scenery right before the sun set.
Oh, and another exciting thing happened: we visited the dunes once more the next day and I decided it was the perfect opportunity to recreate Brad Pitt's latest GQ Style cover shoot (timing could not have been better!) which took place right in the exact spot we were in. Be sure to scroll down all the way to the end of this blog post for the final product ;)
A Few Tips:
-wear sunblock...LOTS of sunblock
-take lots of pics, there's plenty of space and plenty of time
-this park is HUGE so try to pick a spot that has a good amount of untouched sand dunes
-be sure you remember where you parked, we almost got lost b/c we walked so far deep into the dunes!
-wear a cute outfit (with color!)
See ya later alligator,
