What to wear Wednesdays: What we wore!
Just a disclaimer – I totally don’t have it all together clothing wise! Most of the time I regrettably sport the workout clothes because I’ve found I get so grumpy in this Texas heat if I am outside with my kids NOT wearing exercise clothes. I don’t even want to move! Lately I’ve been trying my hardest to step up my game (and still play with my kids!) I am on the road towards being a recovering habitual yoga pant wearer.
But anyway…it was SO MUCH FUN picking out our outfits for our family photo session! It definitely took several trips to different stores (and returns!) but I REALLY love the way the colors and textures turned out. Big thanks to my photographer friend Konnor Stringham (from Konnor Quest Photography) who photographed us! I also love the location – the Carrollton greenbelt. I love all the different greens, layers of grass, and a few wild flowers.
Something that I found was super helpful in picking out my kids outfits from Once Upon A Child. They sort by COLOR! How awesome is that if you already know generally what color you want? I definitely stuck with the lighter colors because it pops more light on faces – and it’s all about the faces, right? My kids’ faces are so so so cute!
I also found it really helpful to not bring my husband but a friend shopping (shout out to you Jess!). I couldn’t decide between the gold skirt and the blue chiffon skirt so I totally cheated on the one outfit rule, but changed lightening fast while the kids and my husband were being photographed. It was such a quick change – I just pulled the blue skirt on over the gold then unzipped the gold and VIOLA! I think I did this simultaneously making monkey noises for the kids to have fun!
Thanks again Konnor! We LOVE THEM!!!
