spring wardrobe

See that ad over to the right for EstepWorks Photography? We’re having a family photo shoot with him in the upcoming weeks {our first date was rained out : late winter/early spring is very unpredictable in the NW} and I’ve been trying to come up with coordinated – but not too matchy – outfits for our family of six to wear.

. . .

A few days ago I received an email from Jessica letting me know about a fun contest she is hosting. All you have to do is come up with a design board of your favorite spring outfit and include two pieces from her jewelry line to be entered to win a pretty generous prize.

. . .

So I combined the two thoughts – outfits for our photo shoot and outfit for a spring design board – and came up with one giant collage to suit the entire family.

Here it is:outfits

 

What do you think?

For the record, I think ‘his’ outfit is a bit prepier than ‘he’ would actually go for {especially with the little pom-pom boutonniere which I happen to adore}. I am loving Kayce Hughes’ shirt dresses and those joyfolie shoes are the sweetest things ever.  I tried to include pieces that our family actually owns so that when photo-day arrives I could achieve a similar style.

So there you have it : my version of our family dressed for spring.

You can enter the Design Your Look contest at www. jesslc.com. It is pretty fun to come up with a dream outfit : or six.

    I did a style sheet too and I used your adorable little headband in mine! I had to copy the idea for family photos, I had so much fun picking stuff and I am so happy with the looks! Check it out on my blog.

    LOVE them all…especially the 4 kiddos!!!!!!!! And I think all 6 outfits will coordinate perfectly for your family photos! Have fun!

    Good ideas! My daughter has the polka-dot sweater from Target {you can see the little cutie in it the “about me” on my blog}. I love it! Do you know what brand the boots from DSW are? Thanks!

    gorgeous! Love your outfit…and the whole crew’s. There is no way in H-e-l-l I could get my Ryan to wear a boutineere like that but hope you have better luck!!

    The outfits look great! Major kudos to you (and every other mom to a family of 6)! I can not imagine how you do it! I am having a hard time picking coordinating outfits for our family pictures and we are only a family of 3. And I dont even want to start thinking about how you tackle laundry, making dinners, coordinating schedules, etc. You have major talent! :)

  17. jessica March 23, 2011 at 8:05 am #

    This would be perfect for your family photos! I love the layers and accessories you added. I can’t wait to see them!

    Joyfolie has the cutest shoes, I have been watching her design a day, she is amazing at what she does. I am sure your pictures will turn out amazing, you have great style!

    I love the aviators for your #1! So cute on a little guy. All of the outfits are great! And those little girl shoes are perfect.

    I like the colors you used, very classic. My favorite is the boots with the long socks, they are great! thanks for sharing.

  22. Jess LC March 23, 2011 at 7:01 am #

    This is so cute! And I love your outfit for the DESIGN YOUR LOOK challenge! I’m excited to post it in the challenge in April :).

    Have a great day!

  23. Chelsea March 23, 2011 at 6:41 am #

    Great job! All of the outfits are precious. I love preppy style, my girls are totally Gap babies and as soon as they are big enough Crew Cuts will be added to their wardrobe. Good luck with your pictures. I have 2 and I know how hard that was. I can only imagine 4 ;).

  24. cailan March 23, 2011 at 6:40 am #

    This is such a fun idea. I love the challenge of making us all 5 of us coordinate every once in awhile – it’s very like the creative process of trying to decorate a room with a unifying look. So enjoy what you came up with – you will all look so great on the wall in your home!

  25. Shera O March 23, 2011 at 6:32 am #

    LOVE it all..I’ve been eyeing a few of those pieces myself!

  26. Karie Murray March 23, 2011 at 6:24 am #

    you have great style! ….I think I might use this idea to piece seasonal outfit ideas together for my photography clients…..can’t wait to see the pics! (you will share some right?)

  27. Lynda March 23, 2011 at 6:06 am #

    Your family photo outfits all work so well together. What great finds. Love your planned outfit! Just love!

  28. Jenn March 23, 2011 at 6:04 am #

    Love it all! Especially the socks with your outfit.

  29. Andrea March 23, 2011 at 5:45 am #

    You guys are going to look smashing! I love all the pieces you chose, especially that cute little ruffle skirt for Audrey. It’s hard to dress an entire family, right?

  30. Jess March 23, 2011 at 5:01 am #

    Love it! Great patterns and colors! I’m loving those sunglasses for No. 1- I’ve been looking for something similar for my own No. 1 :-) Hope your photos turn out wonderfully!

  31. jennifer March 23, 2011 at 4:35 am #
