Top:Thrift Skirt:Thrift Shoes:Frye

I received a new lens for the camera a couple of days ago, and my boyfriend is still adjusting to using a straight 50mm. As a result, some of these photos are a bit blurry - or as I would call it, "soft focus" - so please hang in there with me. On a side note, my work has been crazy all weekend, so far, and I hope that you guys are getting some r&r while I'm slaving away.

I love that skirt and the gingham top! I've been trying to find a longish, pleated skirt kind of similar to yours...except I think I want a plain one. You look lovely as usual!!!

Lies said...

I love the scenery that you chose for today's outfit. The lavender is so complimentary to your outfit and your top is wonderful, I always love a good gingham print! I hope things at work slow down for you!

I adore this!! Is the lens a 50mm f/1.8 from Canon? If so, the focus on that one is a bit wonky. Try manually focussing and using the focus preview button to make sure you got it exactly where you want it. Also, since you're shooting at such an open aperture and outdoors, make sure you're shooting at the lowest ISO setting possible, and shoot manually if you can. They're looking a little hot.

But these ones look very good. :) And your outfit it especially cute today girly!!

Swalvs said...

loved the top and the skirt so much and I think soft focus looks also nice!

the Citizen Rosebud said...

Wonderful pattern mix. Navy is such a great color, and I think you always remind me of how easy it is to wear. You look gee-orGEE-us as always. I wish you had weekends off friend; you deserve some chill time!

Sales, Smiles and Styles said...

This is beautiful-a really lovely summer look. I hope you don't mind but I've used a few of your photos to a recent post on the blogs I admire-I have linked them back to your page.
Thank you for showing all your beautiful outfits-they make me happy! :) x

omg this mix of patterns is amazing!!!!!!!! i have a 50mm too and it does take time getting used to not having so much range and having to walk wayyyyy back to get a full body shot, but it truly is an amazing lens :)

Sara Lynn said...

You look amazing! I really need to look for some long skirts like this for warm weather. Love the soft focus lens! I hope that you get a chance to get some R&R too soon Meg :)

avalonne lou summers said...

It does take some time to adjust to the 50mm! I'm glad you got that lens!!! Just keep holding down the button until it is in focus and then take the photo. Make sure it's set to auto focus, because it's hard to tell if the image is in focus in manual focus, unless it's a close up shot. You look beautiful as usual!

Märta said...

i love the skir.
