THE ONE THING I START WITH WHEN PLANNING FAMILY HOLIDAY PICTURES…
My outfit. And for all the Mommas out there, I suggest doing the same thing! Many times we spend forever planning out our kids outfits and are left scrambling to find something to wear. The thing is..I find that kids outfits are easily shaped and tweaked. But if I don’t wear something that I’m excited about it makes for a stressful family picture session.
This year I teamed up with Marks & Spencer to find some beautiful unique pieces that I think would be perfect to wear for family pictures. If you aren’t familiar with Marks and Spencer, they are a British clothing brand (with fabulous US shipping times). They are widely known for carrying well made pieces and add hundreds of new items to their site every week!
START YOUR LOOK WITH A KILLER STATEMENT PIECE.
When I am looking for my outfit for family pictures, I start by browsing for an item (like a top or a dress) that I’m initially drawn to. From there I add on neutral pieces that compliment it and develop a color scheme that I can carry into the rest of my family’s looks.
SPARKLE ALWAYS WORKS FOR A HOLIDAY LOOK
I can’t help but be drawn to some sparkle for any holiday look. And that was exactly the case for family pictures this year. I fell in love with this sequin pencil skirt. The neutral color palette makes it pretty easy to add other pieces and corresponding outfits.
I haven’t seen any other piece like this skirt before, which adds to the draw of shopping at Marks and Spencer! I love finding items that I haven’t seen anyone else wear before, and I found so many good gems at Marks and Spencer (like this blouse I’m obsessed with).
