SANTA FE FOLK ART FESTIVAL PART 4: THE COLORS OF SANTA FE

July 24, 2012

By now you must know that I am a big fan of color.  I love unusual combinations of color and I love to mix and match prints and patterns.  I guess looking back I’ve always been colorful in my wardrobe as well as my personality.  Needless to say, the Santa Fe and the Folk Art Festival was full of color beyond my imagination.  Color seems to be a part of many of the cultures represented at the festival and I was 100% on board with everything I saw.  Take a look below at all the festive combinations I witnessed. I hope they inspire you as much as they did me!
