The few hours before sunset are called “The Golden Hours” by photographers. It's when the sun is getting ready to set and the light is perfectly golden.

I felt like a fairy princess in my flower crown, wandering around the trees. As the the chiffon fabric blew in the cool autumn breeze, I knew I had chosen the perfect time to shoot some photos of this outfit…
The beauty of this dress is that it can be styled to represented a pretty, fairy princess, but then it can be transformed into a glamorous outfit for a formal event:
