I wrote earlier this summer about my love of souvenirs I can wear, so you better believe I had my eye out for a cute item to commemorate my trip to the Palm Desert! A few people from the group I was with decided to go vintage shopping one morning in the Yucca Valley, which is just outside of Joshua Tree. The first shop we visited, The End, was by far the best of the bunch. Gems from every decade and in a wide range of sizes, all carefully curated by the shop’s owner. I think each of the babes in my group took home at least one piece from this shop!
I went in hoping to find the Palm Springs mumu of my dreams, but fell in love with this cropped geometric-print top. If there ever were proof that you should try vintage on despite the listed size, it’s this top. The tag said XS, but I felt pretty sure it looked like my size (ahem…not an XS). I was right – it’s a perfect fit!
I love that even though it’s technically just a black cropped top, the print is reminiscent of the mid-century architecture Palm Springs is known for. Another perfect travel souvenir in my closet!
