1971 : Hot August Nights

1971 1 1971 2 1971 3 Wearing:
Parker top
Topshop American Flag shorts
Rebecca Minkoff gladiator sandals
Prada sunglasses
Topshop layered necklaces

My boyfriend and I have made it a tradition to go to Reno for Hot August Nights every year.  If you don't know what HAN is, I'm sorry to hear that.  ;)  It's the biggest classic car show event in the world.  It takes place in Reno, Nevada and the event lasts for an entire week.  A whole week of live music (50s and 60s inspired of course), drag races, nightly cruises, daily show 'n shine (in multiple places), live car auctions, lots of food, contests, and more.  Everything is 50s and 60s themed.  It's an absolute blast!  I have the time of my life every time.

What I love most about this event are two things:  the people there and the cars.  Everyone attending or participating is there for their love of classic cars.  Having a vintage Mustang myself, Hot August Nights is the perfect place for me.

I wore this outfit for our last day there.   I knew we were going to be walking around everywhere, so I wore comfortable sandals.

Something to note:  If you've never been to a car show before, don't ever touch any of the show cars!  That's basic car show etiquette.  The owner of this beautiful 1971 Mustang actually let me touch his car...and sit inside of it.  I've been to countless shows and this is the first time that's ever happened.

Hope you like these photos.  There are more outfit photos I'll be posting for this Hot August Nights series :)

  5. I love car art. We have plenty of small car-shows here and most have that Fifties-vibe that goes so well with the vehicles. You're dressed perfectly for such an event. Glad you had fun!
