Golden Hour in Malibu

Last weekend I went to dinner at the oft Instagrammed Malibu Farm, a restaurant situated on a pier. The view was lovely, especially as the sun started to set, and if you've followed my blog for any length of time, you might know that docks during golden hour are my most favorite time and place for outfit photos.

When the sunlight catches my hair and ignites it bright gold, it might be the only time I don't mind my frizzy flyaways.

  11. Oh what a beautiful spot! The photos always turn out so nicely. Sometimes I wish I could follow the sun like a proper blogger, haha! Maybe once the boys are a bit bigger and less likely to knock over my tripod!

    Hope that your week is going well so far :) We are having some much needed cooler weather after what felt like a never ending heatwave!

  12. How have I never heard of this place?! The location is BEAUTIFUL! Love your outfit, too!


  13. Beautiful location. You selected a classic outfit--love the width of those jeans. I was hoping you would have noted your lip color, I really like it!

  14. These are beautiful photos! The lighting is perfect! It's been so cloudy here lately I'm sick of the grey lighting in my blog pics. I'm glad you are enjoying your time!

  15. Gorrrrrgeous- and you look so pretty all lit up, girlfriend!

  16. Lol, I need to learn to turn the right way at golden hour. My photos always end up making me look blinded rather than sun-kissed. These are beautiful though. It looks so peaceful!

  19. Such beautiful photos! I love the way golden hour just makes everything glow! Your pants are super cute, by the way!

  20. Golden hour is a time of day that I, admittedly, don't take advantage of as much as I would like. Generally, by five or six pm, even if I'm on vacation, I like to be at home with my shoes off and a glass of wine in hand. That said, we used golden hour a lot when we were in Florence and the results were so pretty, it almost convinced me to stay out later in the evenings. Almost, but not quite ;) In reality, I'm happy to admire golden hour in photos from others. And these ones of yours are just gorgeous.

  21. This looks amazing! I LOVE your jacket, it's so perfect for spring!

  22. I can see why this would be so very instagramable...
    Great shots, you are glowing L!
