The Magic Hour

Today I decided to wear one of numerous dot print articles of clothing which I own. How can you go wrong with polka dots? They are so happy and festive that you can't help but smile when you see them dancing across a skirt or a blouse! Here I am wearing the J. Crew Big Shot Dot skirt.

The silk blouse which I paired my dizzy dots with is from Kate Spade and the belt is from Target... I went on a belt buying spree recently there when they had 20% off belts. I was looking for a simple navy belt, which luckily they had. The ballet flats are from J. Crew. Normally I would wear heels with this outfit, but since I knew I would be on my feet all day I opted for flats.

The reason I titled this post "The Magic Hour" is because my blouse reminded me of the colors in a gorgeous sunset! I was very fortunate to witness the most beautiful sunset outside my house a few days ago.  It only lasted for a matter of minutes, at least in this particular shade of vibrant orange. It then vanished as quickly as it appeared. The magic hour, or golden hour as it is more commonly referred to, is the first and last hour of sunlight. This is suppose to be the ideal time to take pictures. Ansel Adams famously utilized this time of day to take many of his photographs. While I am certainly no Ansel Adams, I like the way these photos came out and wanted to share them with you!




  1. Love the photos and the outfit Katie!

  2. Thank you! I hope your goal to take more photos is coming along well. I don't know that much about photography, but I have fun taking pictures as an amateur photographer!


Say hello to Hello Katie! I would love to hear from you!
