Camel and red ambitions




































I was trying to figure out what my big camel and red moment would be (because I have been taunted with hundreds of images of this beautiful combo, See example), when I remembered that I bought this camel poncho earlier this fall, and I have had this bold print skirt since my days as a sales associate at Loft. I am mad that I didn't think of my particular creation sooner. I really like that the poncho itself is evocative of the old west and the bright print skirt is probably more appropriate for a garden tea party. Despite their contrasting purposes, I think they look oddly good together. And I think the wine colored boots, which can go with either piece separately, helped tie the look together.
