Outfit: Every Day’s Like an Open Door

I had heard rumors about the so-called Golden Hour, that short and heavenly span right after sunrise and right before sunset, when I first picked up my DSLR, but I never put much thought into it.  I figured my pictures would come out the same way whether I took them at noon or after Moxie went for her “sleepy peepee” at dusk.


I admit it.  On Thursday night, instead of staying home and relaxing like I’d planned, I ambled over to the Pleasant Home, a prairie-style mansion just a few blocks from my apartment.  I went at precisely 7:11, one hour before sunset, to test out the golden hour.  Consider me a fan.  Obviously, I have a bit to learn about how best to edit in this light, but I do love how very soft everything looks–it’s almost ethereal.

Once more, I donned my child-size lemon dress.  Last time, I dressed it down with a denim jacket and a pair of plimsolls, but I haven’t really done a fancy look in some time, so I decided to play up the little party thing it’s got going on.  That’s where these peacock-blue shoes come in.  Before I moved, I had a huge pile in my closet made up of things I was planning to donate.  Some of those items had been in the pile for ages, including these shoes.  Why they were there is anyone’s guess, because I think they make this dress pop like no other shoes could!  I’m so glad I kept them!
