B: We’d heard people talk about Santa Fe shopping as a unique experience and quickly discovered that the city’s shopping primarily consists of Native American items and Southwestern flair. Katherine and I always love to embrace a city’s culture when we travel and found a favorite store that truly allowed us to do that. Shiprock Santa Fe is part art gallery, part store, with the most memorable rooms of Native American blankets and artifacts, dating back hundreds of years. Take a look at their website and scroll through our photos because we couldn’t help but get a little snap happy in here. The overall aesthetic was breathtaking and helped us fully embrace Santa Fe culture.
K: I would say that Shiprock Santa Fe is one of the city’s most Instagrammable spots and easily the most interesting store in the area. The iconic room of blankets (shown above) draw people inside and of course, we had to snap a few pictures on the ladder. We were amazed that some of the blankets date back to the 1800s and have been with families for years before they were found or donated to the gallery. If you’re in town, you must stop here and take a look around. Just be careful! We spent over an hour inside so make sure you carve out time in your travel schedule!
K: In packing for Santa Fe, I knew I wanted to bring layers and items that somehow had a Southwestern feel to them. I love dressing for a location and felt excited to pack for this trip. The horse print button down was a perfect layer underneath my denim jacket and I love how this could also work as an unexpected button down for work too (paired with wide leg trousers or tucked into a skirt). I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite “Southwestern” prints here for all you cactus-loving ladies to take a peek at.
