Anniversary Shoot

Dressing Jeri and Jeff for their anniversary shoot with Sheradee Hurst Photography was so much fun! Jeri is the perfect shape for fit and flare, and I knew this was the dress when I saw it. She is wearing a gorgeous multi-colored Milly dress with a skinny Reiss belt and black pumps. Jeff is wearing a blue suit and white button-down shirt from his closet and a Brooks Brothers burgundy pocket square highlighting one of the many colors in Jeri’s dress. They both look gorgeous! Look how adorable these two are together. Beautiful photos!

Wear White in the Winter

After labor day, you put your white skinnies and dresses away, right? No, that rule is long gone! Don’t be afraid to pull them out in the winter. It’s a great way to brighten up your wardrobe with pieces you already own. Here are a few ways to pull your look together:

 

Pair your skinnies with a turtle neck, over-sized cardigan and black moto booties.

Geometric Pattern Cardigan, sixkisses.com, $63; UNIQLO turtle neck t-shirt, uniqlo.com, $10; J Brand mid-rise skinny jeans, mytheresa.com, $267; STEVEN by Steve Madden Early Moto Booties, Macys.com, $89.

 

 

Throw a grey (or any color really) over your white skinnies and add over-the-knee boots. This is a great deal ($99) on this Brooks Brothers cashmere sweater, and it’s a great closet staple! A good tip for wearing white denim in the winter is to wear at least an above the ankle boot with them, especially if there is any moisture on the ground, so that sloshing doesn’t ruin your pants.

And finally, pull out your cute black and white striped sleeveless dress, throw a turtle neck and tights underneath, and make your way to the office or brunch or happy hour. It’s an adorable way to wear something fresh.

Family Photo Shoot: What to Wear?

Shopping for the Hopping family photo shoot took me no further than their closets. It was easy to pull together an adorable look with their own clothes. They are all dressed in blue and white (perfect for spring/summer photos) with varying patterns and little pops of color. Meredith is dressed in a blue and white striped tee, a cobalt blue full-midi skirt and a coral necklace. Nate is retro chic in blue jeans, a light blue and cobalt blue-striped button down, a grey pin-striped vest and a coral bow-tie. Eleonore is wearing a white sundress adorned with blue whales and a big, bright pink bow. Francesca is wearing a blue with white polkadots romper and a white-eyelet sun hat. They look adorable, and their pictures, taken by St. Louis photographer, Kristi Foster, turned out great!

If you’re trying to decide how to dress for your next family shoot, how about adding interest and revealing individual personalities while keeping your family photos beautiful and cohesive? Try adding your color and patterns. I love white, I really do, but I’ve seen too many pictures where the girls are wearing white sundresses and the boys are wearing khaki pants and white shirts. (The exception to this thought is a beach wedding. It could be tricky  getting around wearing a white dress. Also in this case, always wear what the bride requests. Just a tip, you’re welcome.) Adding color and patterns can be so much fun and not “too busy” at all. Just make sure to wear the same color palette so you look like you all belong in the same photo.
