On Saturday we had our family portraits taken. We used to do this once a year but somehow time has flown by and it has been two (maybe even 3!) years. Of course the big question was, "What will we wear?". I had moments of thinking that I want to try to emulate Design Mom's awesome, eclectic mix of colors, styles and fabrics but then I realized that we just aren't that cool or hip. Our family style, or so I like to think, is a bit more on the classic side. I love peter pan collars, lambswool sweaters and pearls. My challenge, always, is to not get too matchy, matchy. In the end I picked a color and tried to thread it through our outfits in one way or another. The color red came from a dress that I bought for Grace on sale at the end of last season. I love this dress! The rest of our outfits came together rather easily and without having to buy everything brand new. I haven't seen the pictures yet but I hope that everything translated well!
