Marfa, Texas - a three hour drive from the nearest airport and quite literally in the middle of nowhere - is like a beautifully kept ghost town that the average passerby might think nothing of. It is a beautiful & strange place, frozen in time on the surface but decidedly not upon closer inspection. We had a pretty major itinerary to tackle in a only a couple days. I was actually worried we wouldn't get to it all. But it is a very sleepy and small place. Time goes by incredibly slowly so even though there was plenty to do and see, we also had time to wander around aimlessly and lounge around a little in the afternoon heat. To me, the best thing about Marfa is how quickly it transports you. The town is so empty (even on a 'crowded' weekend it seemed deserted) so you can really appreciate the architecture and unlikeness to anywhere else you've ever been. It feels like a movie set in a way - haunting but polished white buildings against the huge blue Texas sky with very few human interactions to disrupt this feeling.
Of course, inside all of these seemingly untouched buildings are art galleries, shops and restaurants. Both Binder and Judd, pictured above, are galleries although you might not notice. We visited quite a few of them, which I'll go into more detail about in the next post along with where we stayed and what we ate.
I'm wearing a vintage cashmere sweater with our Etta skirt in navy to stroll through town before dinner.
(The Prada Marfa store is about a 30 minute drive west of town so of course required a more casual outfit change)
