Magic Hour


Crop top from HK, H&M Skirt, House of Harlow bangle, YSL Tribute Sandals

After a year of blogging, J and I have learned a thing or two about lighting and photography. There's nothing quite like shots taken at magic hour. The hour after sunrise or the hour before sunset are known to be ideal times for outdoor portraits. The warm light and perfect sky bring out the beauty of Vancouver seaside and the true color of my beloved YSL tribute sandals. 

Midriff styles come in and out of fashion, but crop tops du jour are easy to wear and fun to layer.  Although days of public display of belly button is long over for me, I love wearing this cropped front cotton tee with a cami underneath. Did I mention it was $5? Gotta love shopping in Hong Kong.

That really is amazing lighting. I'm a sucker for city shots and backlit with a setting sun, I'm in my version of art heaven.

Great tributes and skirt (and ring) Carolina! The fuscia is such an unexpected colour and although it's not big this year, you still look so on trend and chic like you always do =)

Hope to see you post more!

Beautiful photography, love the colors - you look really, I mean, really good!

Yay, it's nice to see the YSL sandals make another appearance on CFON! I can't believe that top is only $5. You have a great knack for mixing high/low finds and always looking elegant and put-together. :-)

I suddenly reeeally want a pair of purple Tributes. TDF!

aliciafashionista said...

I really like this silhouette Coco and the purple heels! I know exactly what you mean about the magic hour, it's such a small window of opportunity for photos! Sometimes it gets so stressful to try and make it in that exact timeframe xoxo

Love from Meagan said...

Those shoes! The colour is absolutely beautiful!
