I don’t know if you guys can tell, but these photos were shot with my brand new 50mm lens! I’d been lusting after one for the last few months, and I finally decided to go for it. When I first bought my DSLR back in the spring, I accompanied it with a decent 35mm lens. I didn’t realize then that a 50mm is much better suited for style blogging, but boy, can I see the difference now.
I don’t know much about cameras, but what I do know is that a 50mm makes the background a little blurrier than a 35mm, which means the subject is in sharper focus. It makes a lot of sense that most style bloggers are using 50mm lenses because it helps keep the outfit front and center, so to speak.
Speaking of the outfit, I’m wearing one of the new pieces I bought during Book of Deer’s Black Friday sale! I’d been seeing tons of other bloggers wearing BoD pieces, and I immediately fell in love. When all was said and done, I ended up with two skirts and a knit hat, and I can’t wait to get my hands on more!
Book of Deer is full of whimsy, with unexpected details here and there. The skirt I’m wearing is part of the Ode to Iceland collection for AW15, and the pieces range from dramatic glow-in-the-dark echoes of the Northern Lights to dresses and skirts peppered with wee elf houses. Last season’s theme was Country Kitchen, and I bought a skirt from this collection as well–expect to see that soon!
