I miss the sun

There have been an overwhelming number of dark, grey days lately. Often the sun does not make an appearance at all, however on this particular day, right about 3pm, all the dark clouds lifted. The sun was bright and brilliant, and I was so excited.

What good fortune, that the sun should come out at the very exact perfect time for outfit photos (during the winter months). I got in my car, drove to this bus station (a.k.a my new fave spot), fired off a few test shots, and then watched the sun get swallowed up by the clouds in a matter of seconds.

Dark and grey once more. I took my photos anyway.

  1. Love this look! It looks so cozy and warm on you! love it!

  2. What a great spot for pictures... and you are matching the back drop!
    Oh here it has been windy, hot and sunny every single day- hotter than usual, which is really tough on the herb garden i am trying to grow :(

  3. Winter light is my number one enemy these days. So I'm happy to see you overcoming it - and that's a great spot for photos.

  5. Hello :) nice blog dear !

    Maybe we can follow each other? Let me know =)


  6. That is great fortune! Yesterday, it snowed, but for the most part, we've had pretty sunny days. I'll try to send some your way!

  7. Even on the days when the sun does come out, it's so cold that it doesn't make much of a difference. I need it to be Spring!

  8. Taking outfit photos in the winter can be such a challenge, even in good weather - the gray skies can make everything look so dismal! We've actually been very lucky with sunny days in Vancouver this year but I completely sympathise with your plight... most winters we get outside to take photos just in time for the clouds to open up. I've posed for more photos in the rain than anyone should ever have to. But it takes dedication to be a blogger, and since you snapped these photos even though you lost the sun, it's obvious you've got it ;)

  9. We have lots of sunlight just freezing temps making it very difficult to remove your coat for a photo. Love this look. Have a great weekend.

  10. Love this look!

  11. Awe, I miss the sun too! Cute photos anyway! :)


  12. Your accessories are INCREDIBLE. Love your style.

  13. Can I just be honest and say that I am so over winter already! How many days until Spring?

  14. Your photos and the colours are great - how do you do that during bad weather conditions (which I am facing too)?
    This green is so beautiful and goes so well with brown and white, really awesome, Lyddie!
