Lookbook: Pep in My Step

Hello 2013! I'm not one for resolutions, but I am looking forward to some changes this year, which include the blog and beyond. I'm happy to be back at it because I had a great time in Hawai'i, but catching up on your blogs was also a lot of fun.

What I have going on this week is getting my wisdom teeth pulled, and I am SO not looking forward to that. But I guess I'll just put on my big girl pants and suck it up. These photos were taken before we met up with some friends over the weekend for sushi (crab tempura) and a movie (Zero Dark Thirty). And this is the first lookbook post featuring the new Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 telephoto lens on the Muse. | Forever 21 jacket | AX Paris peplum top | F21 denim | Shoedazzle Erin pumps | Let me know what you think of this look and the new lens. Do you think it's giving me the bokeh that I want? I think so.

Cheryl! Your smile is so pretty :D All the best on the wisdom teeth extraction thing! Also, those shoes are just so drool worthy, I've said this before when you instagrammed it too I think :D Also the peplum looks great on you! And the bokeh is just perfect!

You look gorgeous...love the hat! I hope you had fun with friends and good luck with the tooth, my husband had a tooth pulled not too long ago. Have a great week :)

Courtney Erin said...

I think the new lens is working great - and I hope all goes well with your wisdom teeth. I had mine done a few years ago and it was honestly not nearly as bad as I was anticipating so hopefully it all goes smoothly for you.

Love love love these shots taken with your new lens, Cheryl! I think the bokeh looks just right....not too overdone, and not too blurry. Just right:)

Hi sweety, all the best with the wisdoms, it isn't half as bad as it sounds ;) and you will get to eat lots of ice cream which is a bonus. That red jacket and heels are perfection!

I can def see the bokeh effect and the new lens is working great! ARGH those shoedazzle pumps are amazing, there was a similar pair from sole society which I ordered, unfortunately the t-strap that meet the top of my feet were uneven so I had one that majorly curved outward...had to return them.

Hey Cheryl,
I love the new lens and I really need to buy a new camera so I'm glad you put the details. The depth and color in these are really pretty and you look great, the makeup, skinnies and peplum top are so stylish especially with that jacket. Hope all is well
