Thanks for supporting the sponsors that make Super Style Me possible!texture-fullHello and welcome to another exciting outfit post! While I’d like to say I spent a lot of time and consideration picking out what I’m wearing here, these pictures were more of an excuse to play with my new toy, a Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S NIKKOR FX lens. I’m far from being an expert photographer, but I love fashion pics with blurry, or bokeh, backgrounds. After doing some research, I found out that this was the right lens for the job. It makes the outfit pop, don’t you think? I also have been relentlessly chasing my friends’ pets to take pictures with cool lens effects. Turns out, dogs really don’t like to stay still…

texture-mid-rightAll things considered, this outfit was a happy accident. While I’ve played around with print mixing, texture is new for me. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I ordered this Eloquii skirt, but I figured what the heck since it was on sale. Textured fabrics, like tweed, have a reputation for being heavy, but this skirt has some sheer elements which makes it wearable in the spring.

    I love this entire look. Not only because of the great textures and pattern mixing, but I could also hear my 4 year old self saying the same exact things as your 4 year old self. I also LOVE the blurred background look as well, it’s something I too have been working on for my blog. Overall, job well done. And your makeup is on point and you look beautiful as ever!
