My dears, I hope you had a lovely long weekend. We hopped on out to the high desert for a few days and had a fun adventure in Pioneertown.

I’ve mentioned my love for Pioneertown before, but it’s essentially a movie set that was built in the 1940s to film westerns like The Cisco Kid. The set remains, which it fun to wander about (it’s a great, strange spot for young kids or kids at heart).

There’s a vintage bowling alley with a soda fountain and an old timey candy store and then, of course, there’s the main draw: Pappy and Harriet’s.

Pappy & Harriet’s is a restaurant/saloon/honky tonk/beer garden/BBQ  joint/roadhouse/in-in-middle-of-nowhere music venue that draws the most eclectic group of people: bikers, families, desert rats, hippies, hipsters, artists, Anthony Bourdain.

It’s the perfect place to stop in for a refreshing beverage, some BBQ and live music after a day of exploring the high desert. (And it’s only about two hours from LA!) It’s definitely a secret spot, as very people know about it and venture out, which makes it that much more special. But I couldn’t help sharing!

Oh, and it was the perfect spot to break in my new custom-made Sendra boots (Sendra is a company in Spain that has been around for nearly 100 years, so they know boots.).

I love a shoe that is comfy from day one — and that looks even better with a little dirt and dust.


Tomorrow, adventures in Joshua Tree (here’s a peek at what I wore)…
