There is a time in the late afternoon, just before the sun starts its decent for the night which to the photographer is the best hour of the day; the golden hour. The light is beautiful, 'golden' and it is simply perfect for taking photos in. Obviously, even if we're only wearing something everyday and casual, us bloggers simply can't resist stopping to take some outfit photos, especially if we happen to be strolling down West Hollywood's fashionable 3rd Street on the way back from a bit of shopping at The Grove, at the time!

I picked up this amazing wool skirt with a pretty (and practically elasticated) waist in the J.Crew sale at the end of last year, and I find it is perfect for the LA days that are lovely and warm, but are still in Winter months such as January where you still want to be wearing something wooly! This is one of my go to class outfits I like to wear when I know I'm going out later on, and I want to wear something a bit nicer than just a tee shirt and black skinny jeans! You will be seeing a lot of (including a special feature) of these sunglasses from Alexander McQueen - they are a total must in the sunshine here and I've been taking them everywhere with me!
When was the last time you had the absolute perfect light for taking photographs?
