Here Comes the Night Time — it’s the title of an Arcade Fire song I’m really into, but it also is quite appropriate for this time in the year, especially since daylight savings is this upcoming weekend! I feel like I’m going to be racing against the daylight the next few months to get in my personal style photo shoots, so every now and then, the lighting may be closer to twilight than the dusky soft glow of the sun beginning to set. On our way to dinner, my husband and I took pause to snap some photos of this look, which is both polished and modern, with a bit of the gritty urban landscape seeping in.
I’ve been on the hunt for a textured baby blue long coat for the winter, allowing for my red hair to pop against it in contrast, and love the nubby match of material coming from the detailing on my pumps. There’s also something quite enticing to me in the contrast of a pale shade of apparel with a bright berry lip; it feels a tad ’90s to me, but also very of the moment, based on what I saw on the runways the past two seasons. l though keeping a jacket propped over the shoulders is such a popular look right now, there is quite a dose of practicality to it. Sometimes when the temperature changes a full-on jacket may be too warm, however a touch of warmth on the shoulders while keeping the arms mobile allow for the right amount of warmth on a brisk fall day.
