The Golden Hour


This is my first Canadian winter post! Just a warning, there’s kind of a lot going on in these photos.

When it comes to jewelry, I’m pretty into those staple items you can wear day in and day out. If it’s something you’re going to wear all the time, it needs to be simple and high quality. A plain bangle looks good with everything and if it’s a quality metal it won’t stain or tarnish. The bracelet in these photos is from Xcusor and made with silver. It also comes in gold and bronze. To top it off, Xcusor is handmade in Germany and in today’s world of fast fashion, something made by hand is always a treasure. If you order before the 18th, you can still get it in time for Christmas and I’d say it makes for a pretty perfect gift! You can expect to see this piece on my wrist in all my photos from now on, because I’ve added it to my daily jewelry routine.

When taking these photos, my dad and I went to the beach near our house. I wasn’t quite prepared for the earlier sunset we get in Canada at this time of year, so in typical Elise fashion, I was running quite late. My father and I made it just in time before the sun disappeared behind a bluff and we were totally prepared to chase it if necessary. There’s something so special about those northern hemisphere sunsets, that create the perfect lighting for photos.

If you look closely, you will see that my nose is the same shade of pink as my lipstick – hello cold air! This means I got to layer my outfit for the first time since last Christmas. On this evening I rocked a sweater, a blazer, a jacket and finally a cashmere scarf. Now THAT is a lot of clothing.

I recently had my hair cut, colored, treated and toned at Zenred Salon in Bangkok. If you’re looking to go blonde, you can rest assured that this salon is both experienced and talented when it comes to dealing with western hair. I hope you like it as much as I do!

Also, I hope you like my cute little hive ring from Hatch Jewelry.

I’m going to work hard over the next few weeks to get lots of outfit posts coming your way. This is also going to include some epic snow pictures from our ski holiday in Whistler. I hope you’re ready!

    1. You’re totally right! I also love layering simple pieces, but lately I’ve cut down a bit because it was getting a bit too out of control. 😝 Hope you’re having a great day!
