A few years back, during the winter Olympics, I remember seeing the Canadian olympians walking into the stadium in these gorgeous red duffle coats. The decision to buy the coat was pretty instantaneous, I can’t lie. Normally, when it comes to such big purchases, I spend a long time debating and thinking, but since a red duffle coat had been on my shopping list for such a long time, I felt like the decision didn’t have to take too long this time.
My favourite time to take outfit pictures is in the late afternoon, but after spending so much time cooped up inside because of the dreary cold, I realized that dusk was actually an incredibly gorgeous time to take photos. I’d never actually taken advantage of the beautiful lighting before, so on this particular day, I patiently waited till the light was perfect. Unfortunately for me, the sun didn’t cooperate as it had the previous days, but I still believe that the light was quite beautiful. Dusk is always a magical time — mother nature preparing to go to sleep.
I’m not sure if this outfit is red overkill, but I can’t help it. Red is one of my favourite colours, and especially with purple hair, I think it looks quite striking.
