6 RETRO GOTH OUTFITS ACROSS AMERICA! {U.S.A. Road Trip Lookbook}

SURPRISE!?! I moved from the WEST COAST to the EAST COAST of America! It was sudden yet not at the same time and there is a video + blog post all about it on Tales of Sheaves explaining more. So sorry for the silence on my blog + YouTube channel, but it feels good to be back! I hope this video + photos of the 6 retro goth inspired outfits I wore on our epic U.S.A. road trip makes up for my absence!

In the process of moving, my husband & I took decided to take a once in a lifetime epic road trip across the United States and I thought it’d be fascinated to document my outfits and changing landscapes of America the Beautiful along the way. I had fun putting together different looks from the clothes I packed that would fit each location! I’d love to know which is your favorite?!

{OLD WEST} Our first stop was in Old Tucson, Arizona which felt like we had time traveled to the old west and into my favorite John Wayne western “Rio Bravo” which was actually filmed here! You know I had to put together a neo-victorian steampunk outfit for such an occasion.

{MY BIG ADVENTURE} Next stop, THE ALAMO, Texas! Yes, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure brought us here to find the basement and *might* have inspired my outfit but I learned so much about the history and that even Davey Crockett died there in the great battle.

{SOUTHERN MERMAID} In Lake Charles, Louisiana we got to hold baby alligators and swooned over the beautiful southern mansions on the lake front so I thought this goth pinup urban mermaid look was fitting.

{FRENCH GARDEN} New Orleans was somewhere I have always dreamed of going! The French Quarter was loud with jazz music and wildly crowded with tourists and all kinds of people.Β  We really enjoyed the beignets and gumbo soup and looking at all the beautiful architectural details. However, the Garden District was by far my favorite place we visited on our trip. We strolled along streets and streets of gorgeous historic southern mansions that were from my old-fashioned dreams.

{MONTGOMERY ON SUNDAY} We drove into downtown Montgomery, Alabama on a Sunday to find it completely deserted, except for the families leaving an old brick church dressed in their Sunday best. Come to find out, that was the very church that Martin Luther King Jr. preached at and the state capital building right across from it was where he delivered his powerful speech, “How long? Not long!” after the march for civil rights from Selma to Montgomery.

{SOUTHERN MOUNTAINS} The mountains of Northern Georgia were blooming with gorgeous spring blossoms when we arrive to our final destination in Cleveland, Georgia. Working on a historic farm + living in the south definitely calls for plaid and red don’t you think?

It felt surreal reaching our final destination on the other side of the country after a 1 week road trip. Workaway is something we had dreamed about doing for over a year, when we lived in Sweden, and that dream finally came true in the most unexpected way. I can’t wait to share my new adventures on the East Coast and our time at Mountain Laurel Farm through this wonderful cultural work exchange program. We’re already having a blast living the farm life and learning the wedding/B&B business in hopes of becoming innkeepers ourselves someday!

Bye For Now,
