Choosing Our Family Photo Attire

Choosing Our Family Photo Attire

I will never claim to be the most fashionable person, or to have the latest in fashionable items. But, I do love clothes. And, I love styling my little family. Yesterday I shared some of our family photos taken by Motormouth Studios one very cold day this last November. It was FREEZING outside, so I asked everyone to dress warmly and to coordinate with a color scheme of brown and blue. I didn’t want everyone to be wearing the same thing or even close to the same thing– I didn’t give much more for family members to go on for their outfit styling. I’m really glad I didn’t dictate that everyone wear a certain type of outfit or only certain colors. I was really happy with how everyone looked together!

My husband placates my desire for us all to coordinate (never match) and usually allows me to pick choices of clothing for him to wear. He always gets the final say and typically it surrounds whether or not he can also wear a hat he likes or comfortable shoes. My son, given the choice, will always choose anything with Lighting McQueen or Elmo on it. So, I’m thankful that he is pretty great at letting me pick out his attire for now. He enjoys getting dressed up and making sure his hair looks good in the mirror. When I purchased the sweaters for the little guy and his dad I didn’t realize how similar they’d look. It *almost* looks as if they are matchy matchy… but, little one’s cute polka dot undershirt helped them differ just enough in my book.

Toddler Style: Bright Colors for Fall

Toddler Style: Bright Colors for Fall

When I think of Fall clothing I typically lean towards styling in browns, reds, and yellows. As soon as winter hits I like going more jewel tones or greys, blacks, and blues. My personal closet doesn’t really vary from those two areas. But, with my son’s clothing, I try to stretch myself into dressing him in brighter, more engaging clothing. He loves interacting with his clothes and pointing out particular colors.

These photos were taken during the very early Fall when the weather was quite a bit warmer. But, I think they’d work throughout the Fall by adding a fun, bright colored jacket and beanie.

The little guy sported the above outfit at the very last Sunset at the Zoo at the Oregon Zoo this season. He looked pretty snazzy in his 7 For All Mankind Slimmy jeans, DIY orange-dyed tee, Cherokee long-sleeve plaid button-up shirt (via Target), and orange tennis shoes.

Do you like particular colors during the Fall?

Do you tend to dress yourself or your kids in particular color schemes?

I am still here folks. A crazy thing happened this week. And, while I’m not a fan of being vague… I also am not at a point that I can share yet.

An amazing opportunity came along that is going to be very beneficial to me and my family. It is going to take me away from the blog a bit. I just need to find a new balance.

But, guess what… I’m still around! I recently shared a few short stories of my pregnancy with Tracy Brennan for a couple of stories she created for BabyZone.com.

Check out 10 Tales of Pregnancy Brain and 8 Embarrassing Pregnancy Stories to read a few pregnancy tales I haven’t shared yet on the blog!

Oh, and because it looks like I’m announcing a pregnancy here, I am NOT pregnant. As a matter of fact, sharing the above stories made me totally okay with waiting just a bit longer before kiddo numero dos.
