Inspired by Nature Series: Painted Desert

This outfit was inspired by a photograph taken by the photographer David Anthony Porter.  Here's his Flickr page (LINK) he is truly a fantastic talent.  I'm going to link you to the photograph instead of putting it in this post because the image is copyright protected and I couldn't find anyway for me to contact him and ask for permission to use the image.

The link to the inspiration photo for this look is THE PAINTED DESERT.

Gorgeous photograph right?  And it's not the ordinary color combination you think of when you think of the desert right?  Well at any rate that sky blue, red, and gray color story really inspired this outfit.

I threw in a bunch of different accessories because there are really so many ways you could go with it, and typical me, I just couldn't limit myself.  I also included a grayish-red pair of shorts as well as a plain red pair because I couldn't decide which I liked better.

So what do you think?  Is it a mess? haha

I liked the idea of the wolf accessories.. you know wolves, the desert, yadda yadda... but that was before I had added in the red shorts and I was like, well theres just not enough red!  So that's where those southwestern inspired earrings came from... you could probably still wear the wolf necklace with that but both of the pairs of earrings would be too much.  In case you hate the wolves I also threw in that lovely reddish-brown stone colored necklace.  And of course if you're going to be in the desert a hat is a must right!? (Sorry I didn't include shoes, I got frustrated! What would you recommend?)

So what do you think?  Garbage color story?  Or no?


I love feedback, I'd love to know what you think!

It is a beautiful photograph & nice combinations. My favourite parts are the hat ( I'm a hat person, even if I don't wear them as much as I would like to), the bracelet and the bag.... hmm may look funny with out a shirt.
