autumn light

This weekend I was in Bonn for all of a day and a half, and I mostly slept and ate. I failed completely at getting any photo shoots until we arrived at the bus stop to the airport on Sunday and Albert said "Right, we've got four minutes." Ironically, this may be one of my favourite set of photos.

There are few things more lovely than the light on an Autumn afernoon, which is always that much more precious as it fades into night so quickly.

Love these sun-soaked photos, and the pretty leaves in the background. I am also loving that cable knit yellow sweater! It's such a simple piece with so many possibilities to style it! I need one :)

The print on that dress is just adorable!

Emily, Ruby Slipper Journeys said...

@chillairandperfume: THanks! It's not exactly a print though; the dress is two layers and the top one is eyelet!

You are a timeless beauty, though I'm sure you know that :) I've also never seen ANYONE look so great in pale yellow...it doesn't wash you out at all! Very lovely.

Emily, Resplendent Tranquility said...

Louise is right. You do look great in yellow! As much as I like wearing it I'm never quite certain that it likes wearing me ;)

I love your black nails with the yellow sweater; so unexpected! And I, too, have stolen the occasional sweater from a sister who never wore it... mua ha ha!

The yellow is a great color on you! Autumn is definitely my favorite season; the colors, the briskness, all good! :)
