Pink Satin at the Pima Air Museum
While in the desert, it felt natural to go visit a giant compound of retired planes. The majority were, not surprisingly, retired killing machines. Our tour guide made no effort to describe any of the foreign air crafts throughout the hour long tour which I found hilarious. The patriotism in the US is unmistakeable. The Pima Air & Space Museum is definitely worth a visit none the less but maybe just opt out of guided tour and just take a wander around. We were a little strapped for time, but I did manage to stand in front of a massive art piece plane. Another highlight for any true crime enthusiasts was the helicopter that was used to help clean up the Jonestown Massacre. Now there’s a creepy cult! Anyway, my outfit of pink satin at the Pima Air Museum awaits you!
The Perfect Corner of Aviation
There were many impressive aircrafts at the museum but I naturally gravitated towards the ones that had been painted. It was like a magnet. Forget the Super Gubby, the Convair T-29B Flying Classroom, or even the sky scooter. I was only in it for the true boneyard planes. The ones so inconsequential that they don’t even bother trying to seal off the windows. That’s where I want to be. In the derelict section where only an artist can elevate a jumbo tin can into a thing of beauty.
Pink Satin Bomber Life
I love a good satin bomber moment as you may have noticed from this particular post. I even styled it with the same pair of shoes. What can I say? I’m a creature of habit. Had I brought my pink Vans Sk8-hi’s, this outfit would have been next level. Isn’t that how it goes when you’re on vacation and only packed a carry-on! At least I can pretend I’m on the Riverdale Tennis Team. There’s always a silver lining.
