POPULAR FALL 2017 FASHION | WHAT TO WEAR KIDS FALL PHOTOS: PART 2: BABIES & CHILDREN
I know you’re ready for Part 2 of my What to Wear Kids Fall Photos series!!! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Part 1 of the What to Wear Fall Series: Dress Mom First
We all love to dress our little ones up. The problem comes in I think, when we try to make everyone look good not only by themselves, but TOGETHER. So how do we get that great, everyone’s outfits are “flowing” and not too “matchy matchy” look? And where exactly does everyone get these super cute outfits for their littles that don’t cost a small fortune plus your first born?!
Step 1: Like colors!! Remember that amazing outfit you picked out for yourself? Pull some colors out of that and be on the lookout for clothing in the same color scheme for your little ones. PS – Don’t be afraid to add color! Kids are fun, dress them to portray that!!!Step 2: Coordinate, Just say no to matchy matchy!! When I was a kid, my Mom (I love her!) used to occasionally dress my younger sister and I in the same outfit, but different colors. Please for the love of everything, don’t do this to your kids. LOL! I mean, okay yeah, sometimes it’s cute… but maybe not for family photo sessions. Pretty please just trust me on this. Your kids will thank you in the future. Promise! Coordinate with like colors and ones that go together. I mean, look how adorable these kids look from some of last year’s Fall sessions! Perfection!Step 3: Layers! This step is possibly even more important with planning the kid’s wardrobes. Going along with the previous Part 1 of this series, kids are hot, and then they’re cold, and then they’re miserable if you can’t fix the problem in .2 seconds. I know, I’ve been there in that situation as well. Ugh! So, why not plan ahead? Have some layer options that you are willing to allow them to take off if necessary for one or two photos.Step 4: Accessorize those kids! Hats, headbands, bow ties, boots… you can even throw some fun sunglasses in for one or two photos!
Some of my favorite Etsy shops for headbands are…
Her Joyful Studio
The Polka Dot Bow Co
