Early Sunsets

Coat: Banana Republic (love the plum version as well!); Shoes: Urban Outfitters (similar here and here); Fur Collar: Gap (similar here and here); Bag: Zara; Beanie: RW&Co.; Sweater: Banana Republic (old); Skirt: Forever 21 (old, love this style). 

Yesterday was a black on black kind of day. While I usually tend to tuck tops into skirts, this time I opted to keep my loose knit layered overtop, for a more relaxed, monochromatic look. I added thicker brown shoes to offset the lightweight material of my skirt. 

I have to say, it's getting much tougher to snap blog photos when the sun's setting at 4:45 in the afternoon - not to mention, I also saw a few snowflakes yesterday. Definitely wishing we we were back in San Francisco right about now. Toronto/cold-climate bloggers: how do you do it? What are your tips? Early morning shoots? Indoor pictures? Tell me your secrets!  

On another note, I absolutely love watching the planes fly in and out of Billy Bishop airport over the lake. There's something so timely, yet mysterious and charismatic about it that I get drawn in and can't seem to look away (at least until my photographer reminds me of his cold fingers). 


  1. I would be freezing my toosh off:)! Seems so cold!! You look super cute girl!

  2. I'd say do multiple shoots on weekends... and then add them during the week. This way you have a bunch of posts for the week already planned ahead. If something comes up (like a holiday or event) then blog about it when it happens.

    1. I agree Mel! That's definitely the way to do it. Now if only the weather would cooperate.

  3. I feel your pain! Even more so because I am a blogger who lives in Edmonton! I dedicate a few hours on Sunday for taking outfit pictures. My photographer and I will brave the elements outside if its -5 celcius or warmer. If we are inside we choose locations with a lot of windows so there is natural light.
